    I know it is early, but is anyone interested in joining a free league? I am going to set up a league when www.fanball.com opens up next month. If youhave a preference as to another site such as nfl.com or espn.com let me know. If there is a majority of folks who prefer a different site that is fine too. Last year fanball did a great job. Training camp anyone????

    I did yahoo fantasy sports and cbssportsline.com

    They both have many great leagues. I suggest yahoo first.

    Hey, whatever you decide on, I'd be interested....with the Brewers sucking more than usual, it is never to early for us Wisconsinites to start thinkin football. In fact, it may be time for an NFL thread......

Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    I prefer to use NFL/Sportsline/CNNSI over Yahoo or Fanball offerings.

    ESPN is just a waste of money. There are better pay-to-play games out there.

    I might be interested, but although I've been watching football since the mid 80s as a lifelong Packers fan, I've never played Fantasy Football. How does it work? And how much time each week does it/should it consume?

    I ran a VH football league on Yahoo and it worked out pretty well.

    The only site I know sucks is CBS. Wouldn't go back there if you paid me.

    Never used Fanball.

    I'd be interested even though I am a huge football fan I have never played or been in a fantasy football league.

    You form a league that has usually at least 10 people in it. Then you hold a draft. The draft goes down and then back up meaning the person who picks last picks first in the 2nd round etc. There are different types of leagues out there. There's TD only leagues where your guys only get points if they score and there are yardage leagues where you get points for gaining yardage as well (usually 1 point for every 10 yards rushing/receiving and 1 point for every 25 yards passing)

    You play head-to-head against other people every week. At Fanball you start 1 QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 K, and a defense/special teams. Who ever scores the most points wins that week.

    The most time you'll spend will be preparing for the draft. That's the key to the game. You need to draft well and it's far from an exact science. After the draft you mainly just have to make sure that you bench people when they're hurt or on a bye week or when they're not performing as well as someone else on your bench. Also you have to keep your eyes open for a hot free agent. Every year there are guys that don't even get drafted that have big years.

    It's a very addicting game. I've been playing for 8 years now and I'm usually in around 8 leagues (2 local and 6 at Fanball.)

    I'd play with you guys if you'd have me. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    If my schedule stays pretty good this summer, I'm up for it. Maybe I can give some VH thing away as a prize to the winner or something, I don't know.

    That would be awesome!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I think NFL.com has a very good format too. I had 2 legues there, yahoo and cbs. I had no problems with any of them. My vote is NFL.com

    Nobody. Member #1 is the test administrator the UBB used to come with, and then you delete it after you create your first real administrator username.

    We would have to come to collective agreement on whether it would be a live draft or not. Live is obviously better but with all the different work schedules and limited access to computers, it would be extremely difficult to work out.

    But I am in for sure for whatever you decide...if you'll have me.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb.
