Playing draft style fantasy football with a spreadsheet

Okay, so as asked by a couple of people, how were we playing this using spreadsheets before? Well, I'll outline the process here, while trying to find a balance between keeping it short and sweet and still providing enough detail.

1. Use Google Docs!

It's free, and it allows everyone to connect at the same time. Also, as it's in the cloud, it is always up to date. You can look back at past revisions if necessary and is the ideal tool (short of a fully dedicated site) to play fantasy football in this way. Sample: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiNH-JHpkhe8dFVVX2RiaDNyNUdZTFdieHliaUtUemc&usp=sharing

2. Decide between doing the entire game manually vs using an existing salary cap based fantasy game

Personally, none of our group could be bothered going through the hassle of creating a point scoring system, updating each player's scores manually, keeping track of transfers/team sheets and scoring the entire game manually which is why we went with the second option.

Despite all the advice to "never underestimate people's intelligence" -- it's pretty hard not to.

If you ask me to summarize all the things I teach, I feel it basically boils down to "Stop being a dumbass."

In the past when mapping out new business ideas and strategies and plans, I wanted to have everything in place before getting started. Especially back-end offers.

I was, and still am, firmly aware that the person with the best back end strategy will win in business.

If you can spend more money to get a customer than your competitor can, you'll win every time.
