Fantasy American Football: Apologies if there is already one posted, couldn't find it in the search. Is someone going to start a football league? After taking a couple of years off, fantasy sports are calling me back. I wasn't ready to commit to baseball this year, but football seems to be a good idea. Anyone want to start it? How about trying fleaflicker.com?

elovrich has already started a yahoo league. There are still some spots available in that league.

I'm in elovrich's league as 'Grand Theft Neocon'. Is the scoring system open for discussion?

Sorry I have been away for so long folks. If we want to discuss changing the scoring for the yahoo league, lets do it now. Although, it will take a super majority to make a change (2/3). What did you have in mind?

The Chuck Norrises' scoring suggestion: We get to have more points than anybody else, or we'll kick you 'til you bleed internally. The 'Ayes' have it!

Can we get a recount on who's in and what their team is? There is a couple teams who's managers I don't recognize as Spofites. This is just for SportsFilter members right? I am in with Rodent Rebellion. We will gnaw the eyes out of the Chuck Norrises'.

How about points for completions and receptions? I was the Worst Team Ever but now am BubbaGrumpShrimp in hopes seafood makes you all so sick you fail to edit your rosters. Some intestinal discomfort with a side of searing gas pain would be great. Thanks.

Re: Points for completions and receptions Do you want this in addition to points for passing and receiving yards, thereby double dipping the passing category, or in place of these....thereby making a 2 yd dump-off to the check-down back coming out of the backfield worth the same as a frozen rope threaded between 2 defenders 20 yards downfield? *smiles* Really I have no objections either way, its YOUR league folks, tell me how you want it.....
