Who is going to set the league up this year? Btown usually does, but he seems to be a bit busy lately. I know we won't draft until a few weeks before the actual season, but who is interested in setting it up if btown isn't. Also, would anyone be interested in a $5 entry fee to make the league a little bit more exciting?

Yeah, don't let me do it. I did it last year and all I can remember is complaining.

Normally I'd do it, but this year is way too busy for me, so no fantasy football period

Ok, I created a league on Yahoo, if enough people are still interested, it's a 12 team league, with the last 3 weeks being the playoffs, with 8 teams, instead of the usual last 2 weeks, and 4 teams. Scoring is pretty default standard to yahoo fantasy football.

If someone else has already made a league, it's cool, I still have other teams on yahoo, but if it's still open, then 11 of you guys are welcome to fill out the 12 team league, I have the only created team in it right now.

The name of the league is PacersDigest, ID# 211752, and the password is pacersdigest, the draft is a live draft, set for Wednesday, August 3rd, at 7:30pm EST.

If most people aren't able to do the draft on that day, I can make it for another day, if the weekend would be better for most, or something.

2 weeks and 2 days left until the draft, so if we can get close to 11 teams in there, it will be good to go.

9 spots left.

I can still change the draft date and time, if the majority feels another time would be better, that would be no problem.

OK, there's 3 spots left, and the draft is scheduled to start on Wednesday, August 3rd, but it has been requested to change the draft to another day.

Would everyone be ok with me changing the draft day to either this friday, or saturday, or is everyone busy this upcoming weekend?

Just let me know, I can change the draft to anytime, I just want to make sure it's a time where everyone can be present, and get to draft who they want, we have plenty of time before the season starts.

Also, if anyone out there is interested in playing, and taking one of the 3 remaining spots, feel free, everyone is welcome, we have 9 of 12 spots filled as of today, the league name is PacersDigest ID# 211752, and the password is pacersdigest.

I can't make it on Friday or Saturday either, would Sunday work out for everyone?

Ok, I have changed the draft start time tentatively to Sunday, August 7, at 8:30 PM EST.

The reason I have the start time so late is because I will be at the Brickyard all day Sunday, and want to make sure it's at a time I know I will be back home.

I can probably change it to a little earlier time, like maybe 7:30 PM, that would be pushing it close for me, but I am open to any suggestions, I just want to make the draft a time that would work out for everyone.

If you can't make the exact draft time, it's still ok, you can set up your pre-draft rankings, and just log in whenever you're able to that night.

Let me know if everyone is ok with the current draft time of this Sunday, at 8:30 PM EST, and if most people are able to make it, or if anyone has a suggestion for a better time.

Pig Nash

see i'd be psyched if it was in the afternoon because i'll be on the computer watching the brickyard but if you're gonna be there then i guess that's a bad idea.

There are 2 spots left, if anyone else would like to play.

The draft is set for Sunday, August 7, at 8:30 PM, for now, I can still change it if it conflicts with too many people's schedules, just let me know.

As of now, there are 10 teams in the division.

burnzone

There is currently 1 spot left in the fantasy football league, if anyone would like to fill the final spot, feel free to join, everyone is welcome.

The league name is PacersDigest ID# 211752, and the password is pacersdigest.

Pollardfreek had brought up a good point about the draft time, doing it this weekend would be awful early to draft teams, considering there's 4 weeks of preseason games, and practices left before the season starts, so the chances to see how the rosters, and injuries pan out would be better if we hold off, so thank you Pollardfreek, I appreciate you bringing that to my attention.

I went ahead and changed the draft time to Wednesday, September 6, at 6:45 PM EST.

That date is the week before the first regular season game, and the injury reports are generally updated on Wednesdays, so this will give all of us a chance to see how things are going to work out injury wise.

If any other teams have a situation where someone like a Brandon Stokely gets injured in practice, and then is out for a month, then there would be no point in drafting that player in the early rounds, so I think the extra time will help all of us get a feel for who, and where we want to draft.

And again, this date is tentative, so if anyone can't make that time, or if the majority feels like a weekend draft would be better, let me know, and I can change it.

Well since it is now a month away, I would like to request a Weekend Date.

I am not sure how everyone else feels but that works out alot better for me ?

Perhaps the 3rd or 4th ?

burnzone

I can switch it to a weekend, if everyone else thinks they will be around, I can go ahead and switch it to Saturday, September 3rd, everyone would just have to let me know if afternoon, or evening would be better for the draft time.

SO I guess it's now a weekday on Weds as far as the Draft.

Has anyone else noticed their are 11 teams not 10 or 12...?
I assume we still need one more person to join ?:confused:

Yeah, you might want to PM burnzone just in case, but I am pretty sure we are one short with less than a week before the draft. :)

Nobody ever updates the FF thread if they don't win. So I guess I'll post rejoicing in my victory over the previous poster in this thread. I went on an amazing 8 game winning streak to end the season, laying waste to IndyPacers67, Harlem Diplomats, and ? en route to the title.

I made some key trades and fa signings including picking up Brunell, Boldin, Jerramy Stevens, and Bobby Engram and trading for McCardell and Rudi Johnson. I look forward to stomping everyone next season instead of coming from behind.

I really owe this season to Sean Alexander and Anquan Boldin. With honorable mentions to Mark Brunell, the rest of the Seattle Seahawks, and the Denver Broncos for their defense in Week 17.
