ROH Fantasy League-Season 6: CONTRACT CLAUSAL EXCELLENCE

Post by Wilson » Mon May 01, 2017 10:48 am

In the spirit of our times, let this be the reboot that no one asked for. This games works best between 5-7 participants, so let’s try to aim there.

As always, this game is not spoiler-friendly. Results of live events and TV tapings will be reported as they still rather fresh.

Points mainly for winning, titles, main events, and other stuff that doesn't actually require one to carefully watch the shows.

Confirmed players:
1. Wilson
2. Mr. Mojo Risin
3. Brada
4. JigsawVs.Jason
5. Big Red Machine
6. stevenkmason

Draft Requirements:
- 3 ROH regular roster members
- 1 ROH tag team wrestler
- 1 non-ROH roster member

Teams are drafted in teams of five. An ROH tag team wrestler qualifies for tag and regular roster roles. Ask any questions if roster position seems negotiable. Add/drops of draft picks will be done halfway through the season. Teams shall also be named.

6 hour draft windows; 9 hours for double picks. Clock freezes from midnight to 8 am EST (4 am to 12 pm UTC). If for any reason a participant can’t decide within that window a proxy pick will be decided.

Official ROH Roster: http://www.rohwrestling.com/wrestlers/roster - please note that some surprising people are considered to be on the roster.

ROH Tag Team Members:
Jay Briscoe
Mark Briscoe
Bully Ray
Matt Jackson
Nick Jackson
Christopher Daniels
Frankie Kazarian
Hanson
Raymond Rowe
Rocky Romero
Beretta
Kenny King
Rhett Titus
Shane Taylor
Alex Shelley
Chris Sabin
Matt Taven
Vinny Marseglia
TK O'Ryan
LSG
Shaheem Ali
The Boys

Points:
- participate in a match (1 point)
- win a match (2 extra points)
- finish to a draw (1 extra point)
- participate in a main event match a.k.a. last match on the show (1 extra point)*
- win a proving ground match (1 extra point)
- win a good title (3 extra points)
- win a 6-man tag title (2 extra points)
- win an affiliated extra-promotional title i.e. NJPW or CMLL (2 extra points)
- successfully defend an ROH title (1 extra point)
- wrestle on LIVE iPPV or PPV (1 extra point)

*Due to the way they tend to occasionally tape "secret" TV episodes or just air certain matches on TV but not others, I'm just going to score the live events, TV tapings included, as reports become available. So the main event will always be the last match of the night/tapings - no extra points for main eventing episode 2 of a show on which 3 or 4 episodes are taped.

SCHEDULE:

5/7 Toronto, ON - House Show

5/10 Dearborn, MI - House Show

5/12 NYC - War of the Worlds PPV

5/14 Philadelphia, PA - TV Taping

6/3 Chicago Ridge, IL - House Show

To my knowledge, this is Mojo’s first fantasy rodeo. Welcome aboard, sir.

To Brada and Jigsaw, welcome back. Our chances are much fresher without the former OP giving everybody a wallop.

We can still accept a few more spots, if there are any takers.

I would like to participate but might have to work out a few issues with draft windows on weekends. Would it be possible for me to PM and outside party a list saying "please pick the top available name on this list if I don't make the draft window" before each possible period of inactivity?

Also, wouldn't it make sense to wait until after this tour so that Cole and Cody's contract situations are more clear before we start?

The Big Red Machine/Brada program does too well at the ticket gate for me to turn away from it. The draft only lasts about three to four days, so we should be done early this weekend. You can send either me or an outside party a proxy list if you know you’re short on time during the next few days. We’ll figure something out.

There are still two spots available for this season. We’ll start making our picks tomorrow, so please let me know if you’d like to participate sometime today.

a. Choosing a draft pick and knowing where they’ll be in four months will always be a gamble in today’s ROH
b. Doing it now adds value to non-roster draft picks
c. The May shows are too fun to purposefully sidestep
d. Because I’m an impatient child

My team name is in honor of Bushi and a tip of the cap to Nick Jackson's tweet: TEAM GAIJIN PISS BREAK.

Also work from 6am to 2pm CST. The chances of me drafting during this time are as likely as ROH re-signing a guy.

My team name shall be "The Big Red Machines." I'm not very creative sometimes. It was either that or "The Alexa Bliss! is Awesome Express" but I decided to go with the less wordy option. If someone has a cool or witty ROH-themed name, PM me and maybe I'll use it.

Team names aren't an immediate issue. We usually wait until full teams are drafted to title them.

From the same fount, I select Mattoooooo of the Bucks of Youth.

Mr. Mojo Risin is due at about 9:45 pm EST. Then JigsawVs.Jason has a double pick due to reverse order in the second round.

Also, reminder that the clock freezes between midnight and 8 am EST.
