    Hey all,

    Fantasy football sign up time is now.

    Experience not necessary.
    If you don’t really know people around here it’s a great way to meet everyone.
    If you do know people around here, it’s a great way to get revenge on them (by crushing their teams to bits).

    After you sign up, Jammertime will send you the password to join the league in a private message (this keeps out the riff raff not to mention any names) **cough cough...Linwood and Slippy**

    Don’t be afraid to play fantasy sports just because you’ve never done it before. Football is the easiest fantasy sport to play (IMO) and everyone here loves helping people (because we can show off how much we THINK we know).
    Besides if Roscoe36 joins you are guaranteed not to finish in last place. Plus he’ll trade you all of his good players for scrubs. Happens every time...every sport. Like clockwork.

    More info to follow at a later date.

    Sign up sheet:

    1.Jammertime...He’s the Commissioner and soon to be former champion.

    2. Webz...He thinks he signed up for soccer or rugby or something. He’s Australian and doesn’t know what “football”really is.

    3. Darth Tater...I’m just here to irritate everyone and win the Super bowl.

    Hey Darth, I noticed a spelling mistake in your post. I believe "former" is spelled "back2back".

    [SIGN]1.Jammertime...He’s the Commissioner and soon to be back2back champion.[/SIGN]

    I'm in but no cheating on pick lineup. Hopefully my computer won't die for 2 weeks and I can make adjustments after the first week.
    Get the guy that ran it last time. He deserves a fair shake.

    TFD,

    If there is a chance your computer may fizzle out maybe you can give Jammertime advance permission to adjust your lineups for that week if he notices on a Saturday night or Sunday morning that you have open spaces due to bye weeks or injuries.

    I'll help him keep an eye out for it if we don't see you around. (But if you are playing my team I won't happen to notice, of course:gun1:)

    Just let us know.

    We'll be going with either a 10 or 12 team league, depending on interest. So we either have 3 or 5 spots left.:football:

    If you're interested in joining, DON'T WAIT!! Spots are filling up fast!

    I'm TOTALLY and ABSOLUTELY IN!

    P.S. When do I need to buy my new computer by then? When's the draft? I need plenty of time to do my due diligence on every player in the NFL.

    Aurora,

    The regular season starts in early September and we'll be having a live draft 1-3 weeks before then. So if you have it by early to mid August, you'll be golden.

    Because I'm only sending the league info by PM, you won't have to worry about losing your spot if you don't create your team right away. This thread is the official sign-up thread, so you're officially in. You're lucky #8. Welcome aboard.

    I've never done this before, so . . I guess I'm in. I'm pretty concerned about my strange, tumultuously unpredictable schedule-- okay, it's not that bad. It's still unpredictable at times. I just hope I don't mess with the draft. Not sure how you do these things.

    Re: Coming soon **FANTASY FOOTBALL**

    Once everyone has signed up, I'll start a separate thread with a poll that will allow us to vote on a draft date and time. The draft itself won't be until mid to late August, so we'll have plenty of time to find the best time.

    Our participants span several time zones and continents, so we may not be able to find a time that can accommodate everyone, but we'll do our best.

    If you can't participate in the live draft, Yahoo has a pre-set ranking system of each player, and the system will automatically draft the highest rated player available when it is your turn to draft. You can also edit the pre-ranked players as you wish, by moving players up, down or completely off the list based on your personal preferences, injuries, needs, etc.

    Darth and I will post more details as we get closer, ranging from our league settings to helpful hints for beginners. We want the league to be fun for everyone from established fantasy sports veterans to first time rookies.

    Cool. Welcome aboard.

    OK, the draft. Well we are doing a live draft. So we are all in a "chat/draft room". If you can't make it the computer will draft for you. There are pre set computer ranks, but lets say you hate Randy Moss who is ranked 20th or whatever. You can take him off your list or move him down your list. I think the list becomes available as soon as you sign up for the league, so you've got a couple months to research if you like.

    Fantasy football was my first ever fantasy league.Plus it was a money league (which I don't like) with veterans. I actually won it as a rookie and I knew nothing about the players prior to the draft, but invested 5 bucks in a magazine that gave all kinds of draft info and tips. But you can just get info online too, or as I said, just go with the computer picks.

    However, in football, a week before the draft, check around and make sure you aren't drafting some guy who is out for the season. The computer settings are made in advance & I don't think they adjust them.

    As far as your schedule, football games are almost always on Sunday (occassionally a Thursday gamme). So set your lineup on Wednesday or whatever, and you are all set for the week.

    PLEASE...ask lots of questions. You'll catch on fast, but as a new player it looks a tad crazy at first, but it is easy. Honest. But ask us. PLEASE. Even stuff you think is very basic. Check the cafe out (addy below). They actually have a forum for new players where people answer some basics.


    If you like, i can give you a couple websites like this:

    Fantasy Football Cafe 2007

    Fantasy Football - USATODAY.com

    There are lots of good ones.

    Again, please ask questions. I promise somebody will answer them to the best of their ability. You can put as much or as little time into it as you like. Maybe Jammer & I can come up with a guide or something like we've had for baseball, basketball, and hockey. We don't have a football one yet, but it's all basically the same.
