This is just and idea, something that I think i'd need quite a bit of help implementing but if we could get it off the ground it could be great fun.

So it'd basically be like Fantasy Football, following next seasons clans. We'd assign values to every player in the clan league, every player of the FF (Fantasy Funky) would be given a budget to by a team of 8 (An FCL team essentially) and then points given based on the players you've picked performance in the FCL League only. I figure it would be too complicated to include FBL and SL as well.

I expect one of the major sticking points would be the player values assigned. Easiest way to get around this is to just use this seasons golden cue table as a basis for player values, with new players to the league given values based on the pre-season friendlies?

Like I said, it'd be a pretty big job setting up and I would need help, so suggestions, advice and offers to help would be much appreciated!

I like this, does sound like a pretty big job, what would you do for players who are new to clans?

I mentioned above, I figure the only way would be to give them a value based on the pre-season friendlies, players joining mid-season or not playing in the pre-season friendlies would be assigned a value based on the opinion of all clan captains or a panel of players?

Wouldn't every one have the same 8? Ruining the chance for variation.

Obviously it's a game , we should not put it on the thread but send an offline message to the runner , then the runner calculates the scores

Do we all have the same fantasy footy team? Obviously you can't have all top players

Sounds like it has potential, but would take some pretty mean criteria to determine values for players. I would personally rank and value by overall win % personally, but suppose that is up for debate haha

The budget would be set to an amount which means you can't just pick the top 8 players on the site, you'd have to pick weaker or lower value players in order to fill the side. So a player like beenjammin or dvz would take up maybe 30% of your budget meaning you have to chop and change.

I'm also thinking that at each quarter of the season player values are altered slightly dependent on form?

No but wouldn't be surprised if the majority have the same now (ie Costa or Hazard by now), plus a hell of a lot more players and options to select from.

I still don't fully understand it but i will understand by playing

So i can't help you run it unfortunately but was thinking of similar idea but player wages and team buying players etc but can only have so many robots per team.

Or only one from each side?

Yeah of course certain players would be picked by the majority, but there's also potential for players to come out of the woodwork and put in big results against big players.

What if we all pick a team of 12? Scores are added up by the runner

Yeah this looks like it's going to be hard work as it is, please don't make it harder for me

In Fantasy Football you pick 3 subs so I guess a 10 player Team with 2 subs eligible to be used up until the release of the fixtures
