    Ok guys let's get a FC Fantasy Football league going! This will be a free league for bragging rights only. There are already 6 of us interested.

    We have a little over 2 weeks to establish the league and draft. I think this should be plenty of time as long as we get enough interest. For now I will set a tentative draft date of Sunday, September 2, at 7pm EST. This date can be changed so please don't base your interest on the draft date alone.

    I'd like to get a 10 team league going. That number could change depending on the demand.

    Please post in this thread if you are interested.

    *updated 6pm 8/18* So far we have:
    Vapor Junkie(myself)
    JDSupreme
    Stu
    Kilgortrout
    stickstones
    Turk

    Kilgor is a friend of mine and joined the site so he can be a part of our league. Hopefully he'll decide to FC some day! :cheers:

    4/10 so far.

    That makes 5/10.

    I will have the league up and running shortly. Going with Yahoo. If anyone has an issue with the draft date please let me know asap along with a suggestion that works for you.

    7pm on a Sunday, eh? I can already tell you that I'll be vaked out of my gord at that hour on a Sunday.
    I think it should be a requirement that you're vaked when making draft picks. That way it levels the playing field for everyone. :cool:

    I would expect everyone in this league to be blitzed at all pertinent decision making times!

    are we going to talk about roster and scoring stuff? or are we just going with default yahoo settings? or do you want to talk about this later after the league is full?

    Ah, 4pm PDT is better than 7pm. If my math is correct, it's almost 3 hours better. :nod:

    Hell, who am I kidding? I'll be equally vaped at 4.

    :peace:

    I'd like to get everyone into the league so you can see the settings I've chosen and then we can discuss any desired changes. All I've done is start with the default settings and then made a few changes to make the league a little higher scoring. Small bonuses for total completions, receptions, 40+ yard plays, etc. I have played in a bunch of leagues using this system and found it very enjoyable.

    Please send me your email addresses via PM and I will hand out invites.

    I think we should consider changing our draft time to get JDSupreme into the league. I'll throw out a few suggestions and it would be great if you guys could reply and let me know which ones work for you and hopefully we can all agree on one.

    Earlier on the same day, 9/2 @ 3pm EST / 12pm PST
    Saturday 9/1 @ 9pm EST / 6pm PST(I can't do earlier on this day due to an in-person live draft I must attend)
    Friday 8/31 @ 7pm EST / 4pm PST
    Friday 8/31 @ 9pm EST / 6pm PST

    Or if anyone else has some more suggestions, please feel free.

    Ok I'll go ahead and pick one time and as long as it works for JD, Turk and Kilgor we should be all set.

    Our draft will be: Friday 8/31 @ 9pm EST / 6pm PST

    We still need 4 more guys for a 10 man league. If you know anyone who might have missed this thread, PM them :)

    Man - I wish I knew how to play fantasy football. I've avoided it in the past but with this kinda group it sounds fun.

    Enjoy!

    If you're a fan of the game at all then you should definitely try it out! It's pretty easy to learn, doesn't take up too much free time, and best of all it makes watching football even MORE fun. You find yourself personally invested in almost every game that airs.

    You're more than welcome to join us and learn the game :) If you're interested just shoot me a private message with your email and I'll send an invite. Also the online live draft can take around 90min so make sure to plan for that.

    I'm ok with pushing it back another hour if that works for everyone else. If not then hopefully you could work around it?

    10pm EST / 7pm PST. What say you league?
