55. We're knights of the SpoFi table, We quote whenever we're able, We do interviews, and fantasy leagues, With verbosity impeccable. We dine well here in Camelot, We eat ham, and jam, and spam a lot.

corpse, you were in second place when I left. WTF happened? Secret Revealed: The secret to successful SpoFi table building requires that you remove all carriage returns/line breaks so that your table html is all on one continuous line.

I am currently attending my sister's graduation here and happened upon a wireless signal so I thought I would put it up relatively quickly as I will be on the road for the next few days. Corpse led the pack for the third week in a row, scoring 695 points. Jeez man, slow down! And Ufez slightly extended his lead over second place with another strong showing.

It's good to see you haven't lost it, SF. Congrats to both you and Fat Buddha for a exhilarating finish.

Maybe the shock of winning has left him speechless?

Maybe Fat Buddha will accept my suggestion?
posted by pfuller at 07:27 PM on May 12
Umm... the full standings are not yet updated, but has anyone else looked at Fat Buddha's and StarFucker's team pages? :-p

Should we make the responsibilities of running the league and writing the weekly report the prize for first place?
posted by pfuller at 02:10 PM on May 12
1. Yes 2. worldcup2002 3. Only if we can't find another free league. 4. worldcup2002 (you don't even have to use a table) If anyone else volunteers, however, I will support them as well.

I've got 20 left. I made a couple of moves when I realized some guys weren't playing, but I'm mostly saving them for the same reason as Ufez.

Yeah, it seems kind of weird to have the locker room thread fall into the archives without ever getting the standings. We should definitely change to a different league next year.

Nope, playoffs won't count.
posted by pfuller at 03:08 PM on May 08
Each team plays 30 games (plus playoffs, which I don't think will count for the fantasy league), but I think the regular season lasts about 32-33 weeks because of teams having a week off and the All-Star game, which I think is a little over half-way through the season.

Holy Crap, I thought I might be heartless, but a freaking 18! You have a lower than average ability for understanding how other people feel and responding accordingly. Most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20. Stupid online tests, what do they know?

Just found it my ass, now your secret is out for next year. ;-)

I had the problem too, BigCalm, before corpse set me straight. You have to remove all carriage returns from the table so that it is all on one line. [table][tr][td][/td][/tr][/table] - no gap [table] [tr] [td] [/td] [/tr] [/table] - gap of approximately five lines, one for each line break

Two new teams: Deez Nutz and CF Gibson. Hello, and who are ya? (info needed for the next super fancy table that hopefully renders correctly in all browsers. if it doesn't, everyone will just have to take the path of least resistance and switch. ;-)

My fault, worldcup, I mean NY Times Arts Section. I used bgcolor in the tr instead of the td on every other row, resulting in this on different browsers/platforms: The student will learn from his mistakes. :-) *notes that Safari might not be the best browser to preview his html*

We have two new teams this week, so welcome to Cash City Rockers and Abuna FC (let me know who you are and I'll add your names later). StarFucker, have Paul and Andy joined SpoFi? It seems somewhat uncomfortable posting this thread while in the lead, so I will try to rectify that situation ASAP.

I think last week's adjustments were just due to Jeff Agoos's assist being declared a non-assist I thought it had happened the week before and now realize that was just because games were on Sat & Sun. I'll have it up in a little bit, with shameless stealing of corpse's table format and in a locker room post all its own.
posted by pfuller at 03:53 PM on April 28
I'll do it, but should I do it now or wait for the stats to be updated?
posted by pfuller at 02:51 PM on April 28
ah, o.k. thanks, corpse.
posted by pfuller at 02:20 PM on April 28
corpse, when you previewed the table before posting was there a 2-3 inch gap of blank space above it? I tried to use a table for the MLS leagure report last week, but abandoned the idea because I didn't know how to get the gap to go away.

EPL Fantasy League trophy?
posted by pfuller at 02:01 PM on April 23
why not give it full prominence by posting it as another Locker Room thread? My bad, I saw you were doing the EPL and thought I would just add the MLS to this instead of two consecutive soccer fantasy league posts. If no one else wants it, I don't mind making the MLS league posts for at least a few weeks, but I will be AWOL for the month of June.

I'm in first of the MLS league. Sorry Ufez, I stole the lead thanks to the vagaries of the MLS statisticians:
PLEASE NOTE: Per Major League Soccer, the following statistical changes have been made after thorough review of the one (1) MLS game over the weekend. Further statistical verification may be found at http://www.mlsnet.com/statistics/tmstats.html. Jeff Agoos (KC @ SJ) - NO ASSIST AWARDED

From the MLS fantasy league page: PLEASE NOTE: Per Major League Soccer, the following statistical changes have been made after thorough review of the five (5) MLS games over the weekend. Further statistical verification may be found at http://www.mlsnet.com/statistics/tmstats.html . B. West - 2nd Assist (CLB @ MET) NO ASSIST AWARDED L. Donovan - 2nd Assist (SJ @ COL) NO ASSIST AWARDED C. Talley - Assist (DC @ KC) NO ASSIST AWARDED B. Convey - 2nd Assist (DC @ KC) NO ASSIST AWARDED D. Fabbro - 2nd Assist (DC @ KC) NO ASSIST AWARDED R. Faria - Assist (NE @ CHI) NO ASSIST AWARDED A. Williams - 2nd Assist (NE @ CHI) NO ASSIST AWARDED I guess this explains the scoring changes.

For a second, I thought I had mispelled "friend" and ran over to dictionary.com where I stumbled upon this: Word History: A friend is a lover, literally. Not to say that this is what worldcup was laughing at, but maybe he was reading it literally.

I've considered this before too, grum, but I haven't yet figured out if it is a problem or not. The soccer contigent definitely seems to be the most vocal part of the site. For one thing almost half of the posts on my front page (5 days) are soccer (8 soccer posts out of 18 total). It also doesn't help that the last three posts have been about soccer, but that probably has more to do with people being preoccupied with things besides sports. Is soccer smothering the rest of the site, or has SpoFi's soccer base just grown more quickly than other areas? I can understand some concern about single game FPPs, but without worldcup pointing them out, I know I would miss some highly entertaining match commentary. The front page real estate doesn't seem as valuable (as other sites) because of the limited number of posts the site gets anyway. If other sports were represented as well as soccer, it would soon get out of hand. As the site grows, others may look back at those FPPs and think it is acceptable for single games in any sport, which might be a bad precedent to set. So, as much as I enjoy the single game posts, we may need to figure a way to make them less visible to the rest of the site, if that is what they want.
