NFL Fantasy Football

Post by LiverDance » Wed Sep 04, 2013 9:59 am

Anyone interested in doing a fantasy football league? I was thinking 12 teams and doing an autodraft through yahoo, depending on interest. Chalmers and I are up for, who else want in?

What does it involve? How do you play? Any football knowledge required?

Sounds like it might be fun.

You think you can handle it :rocky: it's a great way to start to get into football.

I don’t think I can handle it. I think I’d have to know a little bit about football. I was hoping I could just put my name in, and Yahoo might take over, and I would win a keg of beer. As you can see I’m a bit too simple for that game.

Anyways, my brewing mania has me by the throat lately, and my family are constantly clamoring for attention, so I shouldn’t take on something else, but it does look like a lot of fun that I’d be missing out on.

I'd be up for doing an online one if it's not too late (season kicks off tomorrow). As you can guess, I'm a little biased towards the guys from Titletown. What can I say, I'm an owner....

I'm in. I've played for a few years now. The draft is the best part of fantasy football but it's tough to organize on this short notice. Took a few hours on Saturday to do a 10-team, 16-round draft. So auto-draft would be ok in this case.

I'm actually in Baltimore for the week with my brother. Unfortunately the Orioles were scheduled to play tomorrow night so the Ravens are in Denver for the opening game. We'll be at the big fan rally down on the waterfront before the game. Also, we'll be at MNF Redskins vs. Eagles in DC! :cheers2:

Alright, I've go the league setup now I just need you guys to sent me your email address so I can sent the invite. I'll also send out a mass email to see if we can get 12, we can start the league in week 2, if we did it that way we could online draft some point over the next week. This way when I set up the season we each play each other once and 6 teams make the playoffs.

Hmm. Everyone contributes a bottle of equal value, say $20. Then the top 3 teams split 'em up proportionally?

Want to do total points rather than head-to-head with playoffs?

I am afraid that my knowledge and interest in American football is 0, but if anybody is following the english premier league, I have a team in this fantasy football http://fantasy.premierleague.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and would be up for a league (no thread hijacking intended).

I don't think you can buy a $20 beer in New Glasgow... I'd have to buy 3 or 4

If I won, I'd be happy with some of y'all's home brew, like a dozen from each of ya, haha :spilly:

I'm interested, but I live in NB so getting the prizes to the winners might be tough. Sent a PM, hopefully there's still room...

There's enough folks who go back and forth across the Maritimes that we don't usually have to wait too long to make deliveries. :)
