About Us

Here’s a little explanation about what we’re doing here at Chinstrap Ninjas, by the original ninjas, John Zaktansky and Eric Pehowic. Also, if you have not yet signed our guestbook, please click here and sign.

Are you a chinstrap ninja?

Welcome to chinstrapninjas.com.

Our goal was to develop a fun, interactive Web site where we could talk fantasy sports strategies and discuss ideas about the season, players and games that make fantasy sports so much fun.

Neither Eric Pehowic nor myself would consider ourselves true experts in fantasy footbal or baseball — but we’ve played long enough to know how to survive in competitive leagues. Our goal is to develop interative discussions about various hot topics in fantasy sports. Soon we will be incorporating forums and other interactive media as we strive to develop a community of regular, down-to-earth people who like to play fantasy sports.

And, who knows … you may learn a thing or two in the process. I’m sure we will.

Thanks for checking out our site and we hope to see you here again.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please let us know ASAP.

John Zaktansky

Welcome, part II

John Zaktansky was so succinct in his initial post that I thought about not epmonkey posting another welcome. But, ninja code and all, it felt like the right thing to do.

Like jzak said, we’re not experts. In fact, I feel like I’m 0-4 in a couple leagues, and we haven’t even gotten to week 4 yet. Of course, I have a couple leagues where I feel pretty good too. How many of you are in the same boat?

If you feel the pain/joy, please hang out and contribute at www.chinstrapninjas.com. Our goal, as jzak mentioned, is to have fun and inform, but also to get informed ourselves. We want to build a ninja army, a whole nation of fantasy sports assassins helping each other dice up the competition. However, unlike ninjas, we don’t want to spend all of our time in the shadows. When divisions are clinched, championships are won, and your rewards are raining from the sky onto you, we want everyone to know a ninja did it. And we all want to know about it. We want to celebrate it here at Chinstrap Ninjas. Let us know how you did it, what players put you over the top and what players you beat along the way.

Yeah, we’re going to have the standard email us and leave a comment features like every other blog and Web site out there, but we’re going to go a little further. When you get some hot news that hasn’t been posted here yet, submit it to us and we’ll attribute it to you. Have an idea for a post? Don’t just send us a tip, write your own post and we’ll put you on our front page.

Won’t you join our army?

Cheers,

Eric Pehowic (ep)

    Hello,

    I’m interested in placing a promotional link on your page: http://www.chinstrapninjas.com/2010-composite-fantasy-baseball-first-base-rankings/

    The link would be for a website which about baseball gear and equipment. I don’t have the biggest budget, but hopefully there is a reasonable price we could arrange. Please let me know if you’re interested, and if not thanks for your time.

    Thanks!
    Kim Sommers

    The Fantasy Sports Trade Association is requesting submissions from all interested in participating in the “2011 Fantasy Football Projection Accuracy Challenge.”

    The FSTA, in conjunction with the Fantasy Football Librarian, Donnie Campbell and Bill Green, will be analyzing fantasy football projections and position rankings from participants. The projections and position rankings will be compared with actual player statistics at the end of the 2011 season, and awards will be presented based on the accuracy of those predictions.

    Congratulations once again to the 2010 finalists listed below. Awards were presented Jan. 25, 2010 during the FSTA Winter Conference at The Mirage in Las Vegas.

    2010 Fantasy Football Ranking Results

    1. Bruno Boys
    2. Ask the Commish
    3. FOX Sports

    2010 Fantasy Football Projections Results

    1. Draft Sharks
    2. Rotohog
    3. Fantasy Football Starters

    Rules:
    Submissions will be accepted immediately; however the rankings and projections (in any verifiable format) must be received prior to the first game of the season, Sept. 8, 2011 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

    Each entrant has two weeks after the Sept. 8 deadline (Sept. 22) to submit the projections in the FSTA Format (see the template found on the FSTA website). Please note that the projections in the template must match the projections that were submitted prior to the initial deadline. Late entrants will be considered if it is verifiable that their rankings or projections were published and publicly available prior to the deadline.

    Player rankings and statistics will be judged for the following positions: Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, and Tight End. Team Defenses, Kickers and Individual Defensive Players will not be used due to non-standard scoring.

    The FSTA will present two awards (Player Rankings and Player Projections) for the “2011 Fantasy Football Projection Accuracy Challenge.” All entrants are welcome to participate in either challenge or both.

    For a complete list of rules and entry information, go to this special page at FSTA.org.

    Submissions should be sent simultaneously to FSTA.Accuracy.Contest@gmail.com, Donnie Campbell at dc@themostcredible.com, Bill Green at greenbill@fantasydispute.com, and Sara Holladay at fflibrarian@gmail.com.

    Awards will be presented at the 2012 FSTA Winter Conference Jan. 16-18 in Las Vegas.

    In order to encourage participation (without fear of embarrassment), final results will NOT be published, except for the names of all entrants and the names of the highest ranking entrants (approximately the top third).

    Judges:
    Donnie Campbell, http://www.themostcredible.com
    Bill Green, http://www.fantasydispute.com
    Sara Holladay, http://www.fflibrarian.com

    Your organization must be an FSTA member to be eligible to win the FSTA award, but anyone can participate. Find out more about FSTA membership at FSTA.org.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of
    websites for about a year and am worried about
    switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
