(Thanks to Dan for the logo!)
Welcome to GOALGETTERS, GR's brand new exciting Fantasy Football game that cuts to the chase and only worries about one thing - goals!
GoalGetters is an elimination Fantasy Football game that will play out over a number of weeks, concentrating on the real fixtures in the Premier League. Players must attempt to draft players that they believe will score goals. Other factors such as clean sheets, assists etc do not count for anything in this game, only seeing your player score will give you that euphoric feeling of success.
There are four major differences between this and normal fantasy football leagues.
1) On the main, only goals count towards your points tally.
2) Each player can only be owned by one player (per league).
3) Players can only draft eight players.
4) Injuries are a much bigger deal.
How it works!
Once sign ups are complete, players will be assigned to a number of leagues dependant of numbers.
Once the game begins the rules are simple.
If one of your players scores a goal - 1pt.
If one of your players scores a hat-trick - 3pts + 1 bonus point
If one of your players scores an own goal - -1pt
If one of your players gets sent off - -1pt
Once the game starts, a random (snaking) order will be decided and over the course of a week, players will in order draft players to their team. Once this player is taken, no-one can claim that player for their team. Once everyone has chosen their first player, the order will reverse and everyone takes their second player (for instance whoever took their first player last will get the first pick in the second round) and so on until everyone has eight players.
(PS. The first four rounds will take place on different days - so people can adjust to whos been drafted in the previous round, the final four rounds will take place all at once. Failure to draft will see a team drafted a random outfield player from the Premier League)
Once the game starts, each weekend of Premier League action will be crucial. Players will be awarded one week of freedom to try and score goals, but after this first inagural weekend, eliminations will commence. The player with the lowest score in each league will be eliminated. The following rules always hold true throughout the competition.
1) The player whose team scores the most points in any given weekend (bar the first one) wins IMMUNITY and cannot be eliminated. Therefore even someone cut adrift can stay in the game. In the event of a tie, all players are gifted immunity, If this prevents anyone being eliminated, a double elimination will occur the following week.
2) In the event of a tie for last place, the player (or players) currently in first place get to choose who gets eliminated.
3) Once the team at the bottom has been eliminated, all those players are binned out of the game. However two teams are offered the chance to nab a player and bin another. The team currently with the lowest score not eliminated will get first dibs on a player, and finally the team who scored the most points in that weekend will get second dibs. The rest of the players are then binned.
4) These eliminations carry on every week until there is just one team left. This team is the league champion, and they will go on to face the other league champion(s) in one last weekend. However, in this weekend of games, all scores are reset and it will be all decided over one last weekend of football.
5) All players will get six trades. You can trade three times player for player trade with another team, and three times you can trade a player out for any player currently not registered to any team in your league (bar those that have been binned). If you trade for a free-agent, the player you traded out (once confirmed by the league commitee - ie me!) that player becomes immediately available for anyone else.
6) All goalscorers will be taken from the offiicial Sky Sports App, and this decision is final.
7) If your player is red carded and serving a suspension, you cannot trade that player away for another, either with another player or a free agent. You must wait for them to be available again before trading.
If you wish to sign up, please register your interest below, I will see if there is enough to get some leagues going and hopefully aim to start a draft of players next week.
These are all the rules, and whilst the action itself will no doubt provide twists and turns, all the rules are here and up front, no twists down the line - if anything needs clarification I will do that for you.
PS. All players are encouraged to come up with a team-name that includes their forum name within it, and are also encouarged to make a logo for their team. :3
Here are the three leagues. The winner of each league (after all other competitiors are eliminated) will reach a final playoff against the other two league winners - and one of those teams will become GoalGetters Champion 2015!
