    Ok, are we going to do this again this year, or as returning champion, do I have to set this up myself this year?

    Just trying to get some idea of how many people might be interested...

    And yes, this is NFL football... not that other kind.

    The NFL Club clan is running it this year, Shaved Pink. Talk to them about kicking their asses.

    Details.

    Who's in: We need 12 members. If you have already told me you wanted or that you were thiking about joining, than either PM me or just post confirmation in this thread. So far, I have: Suzianne, darvlay, badmoon, jvanhine, Dance Master MC, myself, abejnood, Xpofer, SmookieP, CityBlue, and honus. So, if all of these people confirm, than we still need one more member. Post if you want in and CONFIRM.

    Where: Top likely sites: 1 - nfl.com/fantasy, 2 - yahoo.com. Nfl.com is homepage of the NFL - has constantly updated news. The fantasy leagues provide a ton of analysis by Nfl analysists.

    When: We will do a live draft, meaning, we are all online at the same time. So, we need to decide on a date and time to draft. By mid August, I hope to have drafted so we can trade and set up our teams. Also, the newcomers can familiarize with the rules. The draft takes about 1 hour 30 mins MAX.

    What: For all you football fans who don't know what fantasy football is, it is a competitive league, where we draft NFL players (so know your players, their teams, their opponents, and their schedules!) We draft a team. Every week, we set up a lineup, based on predicting how well your players will do. For example, if you see Tom Brady is going to play the Jets, than put him as a starter. Each week, your team faces someone else in your league. Basically, your teams rack up points based on their live stats (So, don't start a player with a BYE week - be careful on those). By the end of the fantasy season, the teams with the best winning record play in a fantasy playoff - the winner of that is Champion! It is challenging, competitive and fun. I can't help but check my score every 10 mins! There will be specific rules once we register (I will take care of setting up a private league.)

    So, confirm if you are playing by PM me, or by posting your confirmation! Even if you are not yet on my list, post that you want to play as some players on that list were unsure.

    I am in for sure.

    Confirmed:

    Ramned
    CityBlue
    honus
    darvlay
    jvanhine
    PocketKings
    richjohnson

    Wow, that was quick. Need 5 more confirmations and we'll get rolling. Of course, people who have claimed a spot already have priority, so, sign up NOW! Suzianne will confirm, I'm sure Smookie and badmoon will too, so there might will be room for 1-2 more. (however nobody who is not on this list and who has not already signed up is not guarenteed...) To suit CityBlue / Europeans, we well draft by 3:00 my time.

    I'm in.

    You might want to post something in General as well, since the only other one I see here who was in my league last year is Darvlay.

    But then again, if all we want in is 12, maybe not.
