    2011-2012 Fantasy Football

    For those of you who do not venture into the Fantasy Football forum, I wanted to see if anyone was interested in joining our league(s) this year.

    It seems that we are in some transition this year, and wanted to see if anyone else was interested in playing.

    It takes some time to draft your team and rearrange your roster each week. It also requires at least a couple minutes a day to trash talk the other players (especially if you are horrible).

    Otherwise it is a good time. And once the end of the year comes, you can feel good about winning games or screwing up other people's chances at winning.

    So.... who is in?

    Ok, this is for the folks that don't stop by the "special" CFFL forum. Several players have dropped out and the league is considering division reduction. This would be a huge PIA. So if anyone would like to join our little clube, post it here. We probably will need several players.

    And for you regulars that haven't posted to the other board that you are in.... please do so ASAP.

    I might be interested but need the following questions answered:

    Can somebody give me a quick rundown of your rules/point system?
    Do you have to draft individual defensive players?
    Do you use CBS or Yahoo or a similar service to manage the league?
    Is there a cost associated?
    When is your draft scheduled to begin?

    AFAIK they aren't changing it this year and so

    Can somebody give me a quick rundown of your rules/point system?

    TD's, completions, yards, receptions, field goals and pretty muchs all statistical offensive stats count as points at differing amounts. incomplete passes, int's count against you. IDP's are scored on fumbles, int's sacks, recover, td's.
    They are all counted the same regardless of position.

    Do you have to draft individual defensive players?

    Yes
    Do you use CBS or Yahoo or a similar service to manage the league?

    yahoo
    Is there a cost associated?

    no
    When is your draft scheduled to begin?

    good question

    I'd be interested in playing if there's a need for more players.
