Because it's never too early to start fantasizing about football: 2 leagues, no waiting, details inside. Booya!

Since I promised to commish the league this year, and couldn't decide between head-to-head or roto, I just said, "what the hell," and did 'em both... Two leagues, twenty teams each! Head to Head League Name: Head (2 Head) Games Password: spofi2007 Roto League Name: Livin' La Vida Roto Password: spofi2007 Both leagues are set up similarly, with individual defensive players instead of team defenses, and settings that guarantee high scoring excitement week after week. No defensive battles here, friends! I picked two consecutive weekends in mid-to-late August as draft dates, but obviously, it's very flexible. Are you ready for some football?

Oh, and by the way, in both leagues, The Chuck Norrises are gonna straight up murder your asses.

Thanks for doing this. We need the league id instead of the league name in order to register.

Well, of course you do! It was all just a test...yeah, a test, to make sure you were on your toes and stuff. Heh. Head to Head ID: 25993 Roto ID: 25906

Rodent Rebellion is in the Head to Head league, looking to improve upon last years 4-10 record.

Just one idea, it may be a good idea to have fractional points in order to accomadate for say 89 rushing yards which would be 8.9 points instead of 8 and also if there were to be a tie. On another note, The Joey Harringtons are marching on towards victory.

(Piggyback announcement: CFL Pick 'Em Two Kay Seven will be launching on the summer solstice, so warm up your twelfth finger! If you're into that sort of thing.)

Any chance you can increase the number of playoff teams? Four seems low for a 20 team league.

Not that I don't intend to be first - I want to clarify that. But, with only 4 teams, half could be out of contention by mid-season, and it could affect competition.

I agree on that point too. We had eight last year and it made the race much more interesting.

Thanks for catching that, bperk. Still working out the kinks, which is a good reason to start three months before the season actually kicks off. Eight playoff teams now in the H2H league. As to your fractional points suggestion, Ying, if your RB gets 89 yards, he gets 8 points. If he can't get out there and muscle his way for one more yard, you should just cut his ass. In all seriousness, once the league fills up, I'll approach it again, but for now, I don't think it's necessary.

The Damsels in Distress are in (H2H), but jeez, does every draft have to be on a Saturday morning? I'm on vaca that week, and I'm sick to death of autodrafting.

p.s. thanks for setting this up, TBH.

you should just cut his ass. Once is enough on that kind of thing. Coos County Crackers reporting.

The Jerkface Smilers are down (trying to repeat in the H2H league.)

The DeadHeads are in the H2H.

Costanza Incarnate is in. Being the first time I've done fantasy football, I can only hope to not live up to my team name.

BobNDougzStrangeCrew are on board, lookin' for an opener and plan to deliver a two-four to The Joey Harringtons in Week One. A two-four of PAIN!!!
