Fantasy 'team' competition for 2014
I realised that I'd had this idea last year then totally forgotten about it.
Teams of teams - another possible feature, 9 players band together into one team of players, their scores are combined in some way (straight sum of scores, average of all 9 or maybe lose the highest and lowest and sum/average what's left) and they compete against other teams for a prize (Grand tours only maybe?). Should be fun and unpredictable, also, good for getting people to get involved on the forum
So, I figured I'd see if anyone was interested in giving this a go?
Plan is to try and put together 5-10 teams of 10-12 players ahead of the start of next year, each team has a 'league' set up so its easier for me to work out scores and then for each major race or group of races (Giro, Tour, Vuelta, Worlds, Cobbled Classics, Ardennes Classics) each team manager picks a team of 8 players and those scores are used for the competition. That means you can rotate and drop players on holiday and also so that I can drop myself for the classics
Anyway, at this point in time I'm just curious to see how many people would be interested (we need probably 50-100 to make it worthwhile) and what kind of score system we should use (averages, total of all players, total of all excluding the best/worst etc).
