FPL Poker 5 a side team

Post by Digsby » 10 Jul 2007, 19:31

I noticed that Karrde was unattached to a FPL 5 a-side team for the 07/08 season and I'm in the same boat so I wondered if we could scrape together 5 from the poker society to start a new team?

I've got a team in FPL, probably won't pay much attention to it but it's there

I'm v raw at FPL as well, but this may mean I pay it a bit of attention if you're still short of one?

Ok, looks like me, Mike, Grant & Dj so far. Inexperience may just be our secret weapon?

One more player required then I'll apply to the powers that be in the 5-a-side league.

Roll up! Roll up!

Sorry mate, presumed you already had a 5-a-side team......mis-interpreted your previous post.

Ok, that's the 5, now all we have to do is sort out a captain (any volunteers), a badge, a kit and a team name.

I'm not that sharp on the pc so designing a badge and all that caper is way beyond my limited skills.

I reckon the team name should obviously be something poker related. Maybe The Flops, Sharks, Gutshots? Any suggestions?

I'll post on the 5-a-side thread now that we've got a team.

Hadn't thought of 'The Nuts'....seems obvious now. :oops:

I reckon that sounds pretty good to me or do we fancy a vote on it?

Any volunteers for captain and any pc bods to sort a badge?

I don't think I'm up to creating a badge, too many other things to do really to start mucking aboutwith graphics software anyway. As for captain - what are the duties? I wouldn't expect for me to be particularly active in any part of FPL other than (hopefuly) weekly scanning my entry and making a transfer, changing the captain, first 11 or whatever. No great interest in becoming involved in "banter" threads (unlikely to read them) I'd be more inclined to play a STT if I have a free hour or so :-)

As far as I can see the captain's role is pretty much setting up the mini league and then in charge of hiring & firing if required (if there's slackness in the team).

See here...

I'm quite happy to do that but didn't want to just nominate myself as captain without approval of the other team members.

As for the team name and badge we're still in need of inspiration......

As you started the thread and idea then I'm happy for you to be captain. As for a badge, something with the 5 community cards at the top and the hole cards at the bottom showing the nuts drawn on the river?

Digsby - more than happy for you to be the Captain, got my vote.

The nuts works for me for the name. Bit concerned about the badge though, doesn't conjure up the nicest image :shock:

Better go study the rules for this FPL game now!!

For your badge just google image for a poker chip. Get it the right size. Jobs a guddun.

The captains role is literally creating the superleague. I did naff all else last year when i was one. (except dismiss Hardbody :lol: )

Oi! Besides which we changed our name so we are no longer affiliated with that shambles of a 5AS team.

Mike_'s dropped out so we have a space for 1 more player.

If it doesn't get taken by a poker player by the end of today then I'll advertise on the 5-a-side recruitment thread.

Any takers?
