Did a free league with some people on the site. Last year's last place ended up winning first place cause freakin Marshawn Lynch couldn't earn 4 more points...

Yeah, I'd be interested in a free league.

The past two years we have gone through Yahoo, but the problem previously voiced was the fact you had to pay $9.99 for live updated scores....I'd be up to try ESPN if scores are automatically updated.

Anyone know if ESPN charges for live scoring or if it is free?

Ok ill try to get this started first thing this weekend since I did start the thread I guess its my duty to make the league. Just a few point though can we have a little vote


1. Espn league or Yahoo or NFL.com

2. We going to all put up a few bucks to the winner, And how much is everyone willing to put up?

3. How will we pay-up the winners cash after the season is over?

4. Instead of cash maybe when can all pitch in and buy some sort of fishing gear & tackle for prizes for first,second, and third? To bad we cant get someone to sponser the official FNN Fanasy Football league for prizes :Wink:

I have no preference. I follow ESPN and NFL.com during football season so they are morfe familiar to me but the whole process will be new.
5 years ago at work a guy started a league with $50 buy in and I couldn't afford it so I didn't do it. So anything less than that will make me a happy man. No i'm not big ballin but I missed my Corona trip last weekend and I have to go get my man stripes removed by going to a Co-Ed baby shower this weekend :Embarrassed:. So I got a little bit stashed away.
Maybe we can Paypal the money to The Commish.

1. I think ESPN will work just fine.

2. No reason to go more than $20 per person...(and I think thats even stretching it)...considering many Im sure would be happy playing a free league.

3. I think the idea of putting the pot together to buy fishing gear for the winner/s is an excellent idea considering the circumstances. Then again...maybe just have everyone vote at the beginning of the season as to what they would prefer.....and when it comes down to the wire, we can decide then.

I Meant how much do people want to put on the line for the prize pot. The league will be a free league.

1. I am open to either league. I did the Yahoo league with some guys here last year.

2. I am willing to pay up to $25.00.

3. Last year when Rusty won he got the check from the pool. Everyone mailed a check for 10 bucks.

4. I think this is a awesome idea and would love to go this route instead.

Preseason starts in 3 weeks. Let's get it on. Have the draft after the second preseason game. Is this cool with everyone?

I did not see an option for more than 10 offered, imo it is the perfect amount of teams anyways....consider the fact you are probably going to want at least 3 solid RBs on your team. If you do a league with 12 teams then you get down to drafting back ups that often score little to nothing...the bottom tier starting RBs already fall into that category let alone a back up.

If not, it still will be a fun season kicking Slo-Towns fanny.

I can look into to it, but quite honestly I would rather be fishing on a Saturday or Sunday than take a minimum of 2-3 hours drafting a team in a low stakes league. If we were talking big stakes then I would definitely be down for that, but this is basically just for fun. Worst case scenario maybe you can start a new thread recruiting people who did not get in this league who want a live draft?

TD I think we should have a vote. Also i thought everyone was going to put up $15.00 each for the prize pool.

10 x $15.00= $150.00 which is a pretty good amount to win for a little league.

Week 1
The Santa Fe Saints are edged out 84-90 by the Los Angeles OZ.
I sat and watched in horror as the OZ' Tom Brady threw for 2 TD's in the last 5 minutes. Those were worth at least 10 Fantasy points.
I was crushed that Santa Fe Saints' T.O. was held to 4 points by the Patriots defense.
The Chargers finished me off by not allowing Nate Kaeding to get in field goal position!

This was my first game as a Fantasy player and it made the whole weekend of Pro football alot more fun.
