    Boring.

    At least on TV. But better than baseball, which on TV in absolutely unbearable.

    Thank you.

    Well, I suppose that technically the Blackhawks qualify as 'pro'... but they can't compare to my team of choice..

    [face_love] The Detroit Red Wings [face_love]

    To Corran,

    Fantasy Football is a game played by a group of people that act as general managers of a fictional or"Fantasy" football team. The GM's draft a fantasy team made up of real NFL players. Then each week the fantasy teams play each other. Points are scored based upon the stats that the real NFL players produce each week. The team with the highest score wins. At the end of the Fantasy League's season the top teams then have playoffs to determine the League Champion.

    I hope this helps to explain the game a little bit. If you have more questions feel free to ask.

    Thsnks!

    That actually sounds really cool!

    I know almost nothing of the NFL, not a big football fan you see, but the idea is very intriguing!

    I posted a thread in the Fan Art forums for a contest to design the logo for the League. Feel free to submit your ideas.

    I'm not thrilled with the 11th spot but it could be worse.

    In an effort to exchange information with my fellow owners I give you this Link.

    It is a site that will lead you to the sports pages for the local newspapers of all the NFL teams. It is a great way to keep track of how players and teams are doing.

    How about a headcount of the Fantasy Football players that plan on drafting their team live rather than having Yahoo draft it for them?

    I will be there to draft my team.

    I know I'll be picking my team live. I can't let Yahoo do it for me, I might end up with someone crappy like Doug Flutie as my QB.
