    Does this site run a fantasy league? If so, I want in. I'd be willing to bet others would be in as well, assuming there isn't already one.

    I've never done one before, but I wouldn't mind trying it out if some1 could fill me in on the details.

    I know we tried to get something going last year, just not enough interest. I am sure we can try something again this year. And I know we can get enough people in the league this year.

    In as well. Maybe one of the fantasy leagues I try to make for this forum will actually be a success. (See: baseball, tournament pick 'em, there's other sports besides football, guys. :lol: )

    Looks like there is some interest. I assume Jess would run the show (commish), how about getting something set up for the diehards. As my slap-happy grand-pappy always said, it's never too early for fantasy football. BTW, what's this basey-ball sport you speak of?

    I'm not starting this in May. We can't draft now. Too much could go wrong. Injuries in camps, off field issues, retirements/unretirements, that kind of stuff.

    I'd look for a league some time in late July to early August. Just before the preseason when we have a better sense of who's playing where.

    Last season the league I was in held the draft pretty early, and one guy drafted Brett Favre, while he was retired, with a late pick. Everyone laughed about it and he did it as a joke, but it turned out to be one of his best picks. Might be better if we wait til the last preseason game

    I feel stupid for making a different post now somehow i went threw 10 other posts but not this one. I am in for sure. I mentioned in my other post, if people were really interested, if we had enough owners in the league we could all pitch in 10-20$ so the winner could get a pair of packer tickets for 2011 or something, that might be more of something for next years league though if we can get this going.

    I would say have the draft no later than the first pre-season game, Preferably the last weekend of july or the first of august, I don't mind drafting early, just makes it that much harder to hit on all of your picks. The draft is really a small part of the whole fantasy thing anyways, whoever makes the best FA pick-ups, and plays the right players on the right days is who does well.

    I was planning on maybe a week before the first preseason game or something.

    And you're right, the draft isn't the most important, but it's the most fun. :)

    I am absolutely in, especially if you wanna do a LIVE ONLINE DRAFT VIA YAHOO...that works pretty well!
