As one of our SDMB fantasy football league commissioners was sent out into the desert to wander since last season, I was asked by influential powers who shall remain nameless (in other words, one person) to gauge interest among the Teeming Millions on leagues this year.
I myself think 12- to 14-team leagues are optimal. 16-teamers are kind of pushing it, but OK. I don’t like when you get much higher than that.
So, rather than starting up a “here’s the link, sign up now” thread, I’m starting one to see who wants to play. If we get, say, more than 24 responses, maybe we should think about two leagues. (It didn’t work out too bad last year, with the exception of Spiritus Mundi winning.)
P.S. Preference on Yahoo or Sandbox? I like Sandbox meself, but I’ve already heard a Yahoo vote.
Team defenses, or individual defensive players? (I’ve played both, and they’re both fun.)
As your commissioner, I promise to rule with an iron fist, encased in a stickum-covered glove.
I’d definately be up for SDMB fantasy football. I’d like to draft Cecil as my and Coldfire as my quarterbacks, Espirix and Polycarp as my Running Backs, and my WR would be Jester and Arnold. Damn, that would be a great team.
I am interested. 16 I think is to many teams, and I’ve never done the individual defensive players, so that might be fun.
Whew!, glad that got cleared up! I was anticipating a scoring system whereby for every cogent post, you got a point. For an intelligent rebuttal argument, you’d get 3 points, for being quoted in a subsequent post (hey, you just scored iampunha), 6 points, and for having a post containing a joke that is misinterpreted as serious, you lose 10 points (hey, now I’m in negative numbers!).
Shouldn’t you have waited for the first exhibition game or something? Damn, a guy goes to South America for 10 days and they build a league without him. Excluding me keeps it more fair for the lesser lights, though.
So I guess Yahoo it is. I will post details on how to join it later today, say after noon eastern time. To give some more people time to chime in if they so choose.
Also, I assume we are in a head-to-head league? I vote for a 16 team league, I like there to be some skill involved in player-personel. Having a few 800+ yard guys sitting on the market just takes all the skill out of it, that leaves it almost all to luck.
