Just posting to see if there is any interest in a PD fantasy football league. I'll commish a Yahoo autopick league if there's any interest. I'd like to get 12 or so teams. If there's enough interest, maybe someone else can commish an additional league. This would be just for bragging rights, so no money. Just post here if you'd like to give it a go and we'll get the ball rolling.

Possibly this should be moved to Club Rio where it would get a little more traffic?

I thought about that but I figured the folks checking out the Colts board would be the ones that were most interested. I'll ask an admin to move it after I get home from work tonight. As it stands we've got six. Six more should be a given if we move it to CR.

I also figured I'd get one of our resident photoshop experts to make an image that the champ could display in ther avatar or sig if they so choose after the season is over. I'm ok at PS but some of the folks here are flat out amazing.

I'll probably do it. I think a few fellas joined my league last year.

Does it have to be an autopick?

Does it have to be an autopick?

Live drafts aren't fair to the folks that can't make it at the selected day and time. When you have 12 people there's ALWAYS someone who can't make it. Also, we did a thread draft last year in basketball that took WAY too long and we missed the first two weeks of the season. Obviously we can't miss two weeks of football. Autopick makes things MUCH simpler for all involved.

If you do decide to play that makes 9, so three more. I think 12 is the magic number in football. If you go in with 10 there are too many players available on the wire, and with 14 or more there aren't enough.

As far as setting up the league, registration is already open but there's no hurry right now. I'd like to get it up and running and everyone registered by the end of the month. That will give us time to discuss settings and such, and give me time to make sure the folks that are in the league have access to the PD fantasy forum.

Just start a second one

I've opened the second PD fantasy football league on yahoo. Whenever Travmil gets his opened, and filled, PM me for the league name and # of the 2nd league, and the password is pacers.

This one is a live draft, because even if someone can't make it during the scheduled time, you can still set your pre-draft rankings on there.

The clock has I think 1 minute per pick, so if you're not there when the clock runs down, it picks the highest ranked player on your list. So I'm not worried about the draft running long like basketball drafts do sometimes.

This one is set as head-to-head scoring, 6 team playoffs, weeks 15, 16, & 17. 12 max teams, and I've also modified the default roster, to include 2 individual defensive players, a DB, and LB, as well as the regular positions you're used to on yahoo.

I was in a league that included individual defensive players last season, and I thought it was more fun to watch stats for D players, and also end up with some games where maybe you had a LB get a fumble recovery, or defensive TD, to get you the win that week.

None of these settings are cast in stone, so if the consensus would like a particular draft day, or time, or change any of the point value settings, then we can discuss those.

So, Robertmto, and tbabyy924, you are welcome to join this one, including my team that's in there, that would make 3/12 slots filled, and anyone else is welcome to join as well.

Just a question/suggestion. Why not on ESPN? It's fully customizable and it has live scoring, which you have to pay for on yahoo.

I haven't talked to burn. How many do you have right now? I'll ask an admin of it's OK to advertise the league on the main board and when we're full they can move it to the fantasy board. But I'll clear all that with burn first because he's running the second one.

There are 8 more spots left, but plenty of time before we draft.

I can always change the draft date to a later time once it gets filled, if need be.

Burnzone, I would be happy to take one of those 8 spots in the second league.

Burn, FrostWolf posted in the fantasy forum asking if my league was still open. I told him that it wasn't, but was pretty sure you had some space left. He played in our basketball league one season and did well. He might be PM'ing you sometime.

I have set up an NFL Pick 'EM League at yahoo sports.

League ID 5343
Password 123456

Right now I have the league set up for Confidence Points but have no problem changing it to Point Spread if the participants so chose!!

OK I just PM'ed burnzone to let him know that there are others interested to fill out his league. Maybe you guys will hear from him soon. I sent the PM because he hasn't read this thread since July 30th.

burnzone
08-04-2008, 04:46 PM
Ok, the second league has 10 of 12 full, and I've just PM'd 2 more members, so it should be full shortly.

But I wanted to ask everyone that is registered in the second yahoo FF league if you do, or do not currently have access to the PD fantasy sports forum from a previous sports season?

Could the teams in the 2nd PD league please PM me, or post here if you do not have access to the fantasy sports forum, and I will send a list of usernames to Hicks, and ask him if he will open them.

This way, we can all discuss roster moves, injuries, trades, draft times, etc., all in one centralized location, it makes things much easier for fantasy league communication.

Thank you.

If anyone is interested, I'm doing another league with a few friends of mine, and we could use some owners. Not sure if any of you like managing multiple teams or not, but I thought I would ask.

I know a few of you were in it last year

I just created the league, the live draft is set for Sunday August 10th at 7pm

It's on yahoo! as well
