I just wanted to check to see if there was enough interest from members here at the Nook to start a Fantasy Football league. If there is, then I'll look at starting it on one of the free sites like Yahoo! or ESPN. I'll also create some ground rules to make sure we're all on the same page with how things should go. This should be able to keep us allow enjoying the league while also being competitive. This can be tough as us guys can get a bit snarky and sneaky when the heat of competition rises.

So if you're interested and you'll be able to participate in an online draft, then just post your interest in this thread. No big deal if enough people don't want to play, but I think this could be quite enjoyable. Please don't feel like you have to be a FF veteran to play. I'll be glad to help anyone understand how to do things as I'm sure others with FF experience will as well.

Who's in???

Do you mean Football as in Soocer or American Football.

If it's the former then would you be looking at the Premier League?

If so, then I'm definItely in. Smile

I'd be very interested! Maybe instead of league fees, everyone could donate something shave related.

I was planning on keeping it completely free. Both ESPN and Yahoo! have free leagues.

That works too Brian, just wanted to put the suggestion up there. I've actually been wanting to put together a fantasy hockey league also.

Bumping this to see if there really isn't much interest at all. I'll be very surprised if there aren't more people here that are into FF.

I haven't played fantasy football in years but heck I'd play. I like the idea of shaving gear as a prize for the winner. I think we should all put something in, send it a central location along with a couple of bucks in the box to cover shipping at the end of the season.

Is there room left for this season? I'd definitely join as long as it's a Yahoo league.

I didn't think there was enough interest. It looks like there is now. I can start a league tonight but we'll have to draft soon. So post here now if you want in & can draft Saturday night, maybe around 10 CST.

9 CST should work for me. I'm afraid it might not be enough time. I may have to try for 9CST Monday. I'll make the league here shortly once the kids are down.

I've created a league on ESPN. I couldn't get a good online draft time through Yahoo! I'm PM everyone who's shown interest in this thread to get your email so I can email you an invite. I have the league set for 10 teams, but I can alter it if needed. We just need to have an even # for obvious reasons.

I have the online draft set for Monday, September 3 @ 10EST/9CSTpm.

I just sent out 7 PMs based on the interest shown in this thread. If all 7 are join then we have 8 total which will work, but we can still add more.
