Fantasy Football 2008!

It's time!!!

I sent an invite to everyone from last year. If you played and didn't get one, let me know as soon as you can.

Doing the same rules as last year, still free, same format, everything the same.

Live draft is Friday August 22nd, 7PM Central Time.

------------------------------------------------------------

Special note about a pay league!!!

I'm hoping to do one this year. Let me know if you are interested and I will post more details soon.

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

This applies to a potential pay league only

So I have some numbers worked out, tell me what you think.

I am looking at doing a pay league via Yahoo, as I like their format the best and it seems most user friendly. The format would probably be very similar to the free league.

Here's what would come with a pay league:
- Live stats
- Extensive weekly and draft scouting reports
- Advanced controls for scoring/stats (more customization)
- Prizes (Cash!)

Here's what I'm thinking for prizes:
- $10 weekly high scoring team (16 weeks * $10 = $160)
- $10 weekly high scoring player (I would probably do NOT on the same team as the high scoring team, but that's up for debate) (16 weeks * $10 = $160)
- Lump sum grand prize or 1st/2nd place prizes (I'm thinking $160 grand prize, $35 2nd place = $195)

League setup costs $124.99

So, some easy math
160 + 160 + 160 + 35 + 125 = $640

$640/8 teams = $80/team.

If that sounds like too much money, we can either increase the number of teams or decrease the prizes. There's other ways to add to prize amounts, like charging for trades/transactions, etc.

Let me know what you think - the pay league would be open to anybody, but priority would go to those in the free league.

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

Count me in on both leagues.

I like the concept of giving a bonus to the highest-scoring player each week. I've heard of that before, but I've never had the opportunity to play in a league that does that.

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

Draft Order! (with your team name from last year)

1. The Grand Wazoo - Registered (Quisp)
2. Illuminati - Not Registered (assumed playing)
3. Chicago FIBs - Registered (Hell's Satans)
4. Starmen - Not Registered (???)
5. Little Bitches - Not Registered (???)
6. NJ Stugots - Not Registered (assumed playing)
7. Psycho Ax Slingers - Registered (Psycho Ax Slingers)
8. Fires of Hell - Registered (Fires of Hell)

So we have potentially 2 open spots.

Draft will be same as last time, 1-8 in round 1, 8-1 in round 2, etc. Plan accordingly.

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

FYI - Deadline for registration is August 1st. Plan accordingly.

I haven't gotten much feedback yet on the pay league, so I will be selling it to folks outside of the regular league.

PS - Let me know if you didn't receive an invite!

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

I have 2 slots open for the pay league. Live draft is August 24th, so there's time.
Here's the details:
8 teams are paying $45 each ($360)

Grand Prize - $160
2nd Place Prize - $40
High scoring team each week - $5
High scoring player each week - $5 (same person cannot win both)

I also may have a spot or two open for the free league.

Tell your friends!

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

take off your green homer goggles for a second...

mcChoke with the bad sack and fumble ok... like clockwork.... be grateful he didn't puke in the huddle. But you got spotted 10 pts in 14 seconds due to Romo's totally undisciplined play, another 7pt gift (offensive interference called as pass intereference) AND a mistaken TD call (stopped the whiste, stoppping a bone-headed fumble) that allowed a 1st goal at the 1 instead of a proper fumble and turnover. In other words your offense was gift wrapped 17 points and you still lost. ...glen

ps - YOUR DEFENSE BITES

pss - i want wade removed from HC immediately

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

And when we had MO late on a drive that could have sealed it, bad handoff turned it around. Your D line didn't do squat until the last 5 minutes of the game, after Andrews went out with back injury. And all without our 1 and 2 receivers

The rest is just football, cry that river with the Charger fans

Re: Fantasy Football 2008!

we owned you at the Stink last year. Plus this one is end of season, we'll have playoff seeding wrapped up... Romo/TO won't play a down ... glen

ps - i'd have loved to see the look on your face after TO's bomb AND then abuse of Dawkins for his 2nd TD.
