It looks like ESPN is making their Fantasy Football Leagues free this year. You can find more info here:

http://r.espn.go.com/espn/fantasy/football/free?campaign=FFL05&source=Draft250x5 0

It is not ready yet for sign up, but I wanted to check the interest of the board to see if there were people who would want to partake in a fantasy football league.

I understand if you don't, as the whole "I hope PLAYER X has a big game, but his team loses because they're playing my team" is an annoying stress to add to busy lives.

I nominate myself to run the thing. I'll post more info here (if interest warrants it) as it comes available to me.

You evil, evil man. I'm of the ilk that despises dividing my loyalties, but that being said, I might be enticed to take the plunge. Remind me when it gets to be time to do the draft, etc.

OK, who else wants to consider me evil? Deb? Forrest? JeffV? Lucius? Alex? Hmmm?

I did FF once before in my life a few years ago. It was also on espn's site. I thought it was free then, but I think my bro-in-law paid the nominal fee. Probably we were supposed to pitch in and help money-wise. Oops. <g>

But...it could be fun doing it again, although I ain't the most knowledgeable NFL fan in the world. Is it setup to let the computer draft for you based on espn's list?

It can be. Basically you would rank the players (or leave them in ESPN's ranking) and it would draft according to your rankings if you're not there to participate in the live draft.

Sounds like what I did before then...

OK everyone. I've created the league. Please e-mail if you are interested and I will invite you to join. There isn't a name and password like other things we've done here.

Here are some of the settings for the league:

POSITIONS-------------------STARTERS MAXIMUM
Quarterback (QB)----------------1-------4
Running Back (RB)---------------2-------6
Wide Receiver (WR)--------------2-------6
Tight End (TE)------------------1-------3
Defensive Tackle (DT)-----------0-------5
Defensive End (DE)--------------0-------5
Linebacker (LB)------------------2-------5
Defensive Line (DL)--------------2-------5
Cornerback (CB)-----------------0-------5
Safety (S)----------------------0-------5
Defensive Back (DB)-------------2-------5
Defensive Player Utility (DP)------0-------5
Place Kicker (K)-----------------1-------3
Bench (BE)----------------------8------N/A
Injured Reserve (IR)-------------1------N/A

Every 10 pass incompletions -1

All of these settings are customizeable. In fact, I think I need to adjust some of the defensive points and PAT missed points and maybe the bench size since we're drafting individual defensive players, but I have time before the season starts.

Let me know who's interested.

BTW, there are nine open slots, to make it a ten-team league. I am planning on having a live draft to chose players. There is pre-ranking of players, and I suggest you do this once you are set up in the league. If you don't select a player in the given time frame (i.e. there are connection problems), the draft will go to your rankings to pick a player for you.

JK. Fantasy Football is against my religion, which is real football. I would hate to find myself rooting for a Packer or an Eagle to get 100 yards rushing. I, in fact, would loathe it.
So thanks for the invite, but I never have and never will get into this perversion of the game. :-)
