    Here are the details about the Fantasy Football league.

    Anyone can join - you don't have to be a football expert or even know that you can't get a homerun. I've seen people win these things that wanted to know why everyone could touch the ball with their hands when it was called football.

    It's on Yahoo. Our ID# is 370639 and the Password is darth.

    The website is here

    I'll give it one more week and then set the auto-draft to go.

    If you're interested in having a more hands-on approach to your team, you can go ahead and set up your pre-picks for the draft as soon as your team is created. Once the draft is a go, then we can't change our picks or add any new players, so please join and get your drafts set up by Midnight, August 24th.

    If you aren't interested in setting your picks or have no idea what's the difference between one Terrel or another, then just leave it alone. The system automatically sets a ranking for you for the players that they believe will perform the best in the coming season.

    After the draft, you can set your starters for the first game.

    Throughout the season, you can change your starters for each game. You just have to make sure to get your changes in before kickoff. I'll let you know which teams are in bye's each week so you can bench your players that aren't going to be on the field and play the ones that are.

    Besides that, that's all folks!

    At the end of the season, we will have playoffs and there will be a champ! Good luck to everyone!

    Alrighty, folks. I'm setting the draft to go tonight around 11:30/midnight central time, so if there's anything that you want to change on your team or anyone else who is interested in joining, it's the 11th hour!

    So far we have:

    Steve (steellepp) coaching Steel
    Patrick coaching Darth Otters
    Amy (dagobahdiva) coaching Ewan's, well, female dog :D
    Susan (shcook1138) coaching Acme Labs
    Christian (chiss_man) coaching The Charismas :rolleyes:
    Laura (spideymj) coaching Gopackgo
    and me, Danielle (titania7) coaching Titania7 (yeah, so I wasn't creative...)

    If anyone else is interested, the sign up info is in the first post. I'll let you know when the draft is complete and when you can set up your teams for the first game!

    Oh fine. I have no clue on football but I'll try.

    EDIT:
    You'll have to walk me through all this. I'm coaching the ModBolts.

    I threw a team up there, but I'll warn you in advance, I'll probably remember to check it about every three weeks :)

    Alrighty, folks. The draft is set to go! It should run sometime between now and Saturday.

    Steve's already got some smack talk on his team, it seems. You can return the favor by clicking the little yellow-orange star bursts.

    I'll let you know as soon as your players are in place so that you can set up your team for openning week. There's a ton of us, so this should be pretty good.

    Hey - we have players!

    (Shame mine all blow...oh well!!)

    If you feel like switching them up, you can take any player from the bench (BN) and switch them with the player that is in the position currently. There aren't any bye's the first week, so we don't have to worry about that. Just remember - you only get points for the players that are active, not the ones on your bench.

    Good luck, all! Lord knows, I'm going to need it!

    Um, do I have to trade or can I leave it like it is? Also how do I smack talk? I wanna make fun of the "Charisma's".

    You don't have to do anything as far as trades go if you don't want to.

    Smack talk can be done by clicking on your name on the main group page and then clicking on the little "speak bubble" by your team helmet. I think that there's a little hyperlink at the end that says "Edit Smack Talk" or something like that.

    The smack talk is a new feature this year, and I like it! [face_devil]

    Dajuan, Go to your team page & there should be a link to edit smack talk. And you don't have to trade, or any of that "extra" stuff, although sometimes it does make the game more fun :D

    I normally don't like to have too many Steelers on my teams, seems to ruin the Steelers' season mojo. But what the hey,

    GO STEEL(ERS)!!

    This first week was a total fluke for me. In my other two leagues, I lost by at least 60 points each.

    My guys are scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    I shouldn't knock them - I've got decent enough players, they just didn't produce the first week.

    Who knew Culpepper would get a negative 6? :)

    Wonder how I did.

    I think bad, I have 71 points but I'm listed 8th. Ah well.
