Are you ready for some football!: Some fantasy football that is. Are we going to have a spofi fantasy football league this year? And have I earned enough respect to be a comish again?

I'm in. I think the commissioner should be voted on after we get a list of everyone playing.

I haven't got time for real fantasy football, but I'd probably enter a surivial league or pick 'em if there was critical mass.

I'd love it.

Welcome, rainbaby.

I would like to play, also. Email me and let me know where.

I did ok last season if I recall, even though I don't know much about the NFL... so count me in.

Thanks, dusted. Looking forward to it.

I may have to sit this year out. It's all I can do to keep my baseball teams in their usual dominating form.

players: 1) jbou 2) dusted 3) rainbaby 4) danostuporstar 5) ChasFile 6) trox 7) c'mon, we need 8) at least eight ..... free yahoo again? i've got no beef with jbou commissioning (but i'd put my name in the hat if other volunteers were being recruited).

I'm in if you need an 8th.

Is this a "drafting players" pool or "picking winners" pool? If it's the former, I'm not in. I just don't follow the NFL enough to be competitive, and I don't have the time to do player scouting, trades or even prepare a draft list. If it's the latter, then I can spare 5 minutes a week to make some lousy picks.

I'd like a "drafting players" type league myself.

posted by dusted at 12:17 PM on August 03

I'd like a picking winners league. I stunk up the place last year in Yahoo Pick'Em Football, so I'll be happy to play again.

A vote for drafting players, but whatever. . .

posted by rainbaby at 01:05 PM on August 03

Is this a "drafting players" pool or "picking winners" pool? why not both (pick 'em and/or survival AND a fantasy league)? though i believe/hope jbou was talking about a fantasy league.

I'm in for a free player draft league if there are spaces available. Cheers

Hell, throw my name in there too, if there's an open spot. Seeing as there prolly won't be a hockey season, I gotta get my fantasy jones somewhere...

Can we schedule the draft for after the last preseason game, or do y'all think that's too late? /burned by injuries last season

posted by dusted at 04:09 PM on August 03

Feel free to step on my toes. Setup the league, post the number, and password, and we are good to go. I'd make it a seperate locker room post.

ummm, done please forgive my front-page fuckup. rcade?

posted by danostuporstar at 04:50 PM on August 03

still need players? i've been in the last two years and i'll give it another go even though i haven't been around spofi in a while.

posted by nath at 05:23 PM on August 03

I will join.

posted by jasonspaceman at 09:36 AM on August 04

Am I allowed to play even though I'm moving to Canada?

posted by wfrazerjr at 12:18 PM on August 04

sure, you can even have an extra starter.

posted by danostuporstar at 12:54 PM on August 04

...but you have to give up a down.

posted by garfield at 02:00 PM on August 04

...and play on a wider and longer field for less money and in colder climates.

posted by grum@work at 03:26 PM on August 04

...and share a team name with atleast one other league member.

posted by garfield at 03:37 PM on August 04

I like Ufez's suggestion of a survival league. Particularly since you don't have to limit the number of people who can participate.
