    We've got Divisions - Premier, Div 1, & Div 2.
    We've got Conferences - in Div 2, one league is Conference 1 and the other league is Conference 2.
    We've also got 2 divisions/conferences/sections within each league too! What do we call them? They are divisions I think, but that could get confusing... I'm going to refer to them as sections in this article...

    There is a "Too" section and a "Serious" section in each league.
    We play teams in our own section twice and the other teams just once.
    The teams are split between the sections, seeded by draft order. ie the Too section will have teams that had draft picks: 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12; and the Serious section has teams who had draft picks: 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11. I think thats right... with the last minute rush to move/add teams on the day of our draft, I set all this up in such a rush, so there might be some abnormalities...

    We've now played each of the other teams in our own section, and now we'll be moving onto the teams in the other section.

    Here is a bit of a review of the season thus far:

    Premier Division:

      Have to be happy with 3 of my players in the top 11 in the rankings (Embiid, Kemba and Vucevic) :)
    4. bgt2110
      Cauley-Stein (23 points, 11-15 FG, 1-4 FT, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals) fouled out but only gets 3 fantasy points. Is ESPN slow in updating his score or is that what that game is worth ?
    5. anthak
      Yeah he’s currently got 7 DQs. ESPN are slower this year in correcting it down to 1.
      So his score will be 33 when they fix it.
    6. anthak
      Did anyone else notice that both @port_leschenault and @jamesrobert have achieved BOTH the lowest winning score AND the highest losing score?! When I saw that in one league I was surprised, but then for it to happen in two leagues is remarkable!
    7. dabombers
      It has been a very strange season so far...
      Like any season it is all about Schedule! 3 game weeks and back to backs can really hurt production and points.
      Happy with things overall and hope to win a few more matchups to climb the ladder.

      Does anyone have any analysis predictions or comments on things so far?
      I am a little amazed that things haven't suited KAT.. but I'm sure he will come good during the season..
      Really happy with drafting Vucevic as my first backup Centre... Must be one of the best performers Pts/ADP this season...

      Weird shit going on the website atm, scores have reset to yesterday and my days trade reversed..
      Reset my cache and still the same, anyone else got an issue?

      Yeah same here. Happened last week then corrected itself within a few hrs.

      Yeah I’m getting bugs like that semi-regularly. Bit of a pain, but yeah like KI guy it usually comes good fairly quickly.

      Man, Vucevic has been amazing.
      Before the season there were some rumours that he might lose his starting spot! But he has played too well...

      You’re doing well so far dabomers, and I was surprised to see you’d only won 2 games despite leading the ‘points for’!

      I really wish ESPN would sort their shit out.

      I am playing Heaver this week and it is a very close match.

      However he has Jarret Allen who scored negative 58 yesterday which is not right.

      Makes it very hard to plan your strategy for the rest of the round if you to have manually calculate the score. We should not be expected to do this.

      The score should be fixed at the end of each day and not at the end of the round when it is too late to make any last minute moves.

      How good has the Vooch been this season!

      I took a chance on him as it was a contract year for him as he has exceeded all of my expectations and then some.

      As I type this he is on 60pts at the end of the 3rd quarter. :)
    14. HEAVER
      Nice win Steve - I'll probably end with the 2nd highest score of the round and still lose :( = my pet hate!!!

      Agreed that ESPN has fallen way behind with its interface. Conley and Allen still sitting on their pre-adjusted scores from Friday's game!

      Another gripe is the standings - I'm sitting 4th overall - despite 2nd best record (4-1) in the league and highest points total in the TS entire competition? Hope that isn't a factor closer to the playoffs....

      What was the Conley discrepancy out of interest?
      Have him and Jarrett too. Coming up short by around 120 this week, 70 more from Jarrett is a bonus. Can I expect a +50 from Conley?
    16. Steve
      From my calculations I think you have to add on another 10 points to Conley.

      His disqualifications is showing as -15 but it should only be -5.

      A way to fix the DQ problem is to remove any penalty for fouls or Dq’s!!!! It’s seriously a positive part of basketball and deliberate fouling happens every game. It’s not like Rugby where your team is down a player, there is a deep bench?!
      It’s basketball and fouling is encouraged, in set plays etc etc

      @anthak , should be a good match between ourselves this round.

      Looks like we have roughly the same number of games played between us before any moves that we make.

      Good luck
