View Full Version : SF Fantasy Football League ideas

OK, registration for yahoo fantasy football begins sometime in June, which is right around the corner. Other FF leagues from other sources begin registrations around that time as well.

So exactly what kind of league do we wanna do here. Just a basic free, head to head league, where each team plays each other throughout the season? a Pick em league? etc.

Yahoo leagues can hold up to 10 teams I believe so depending on the interest, we could have 1 or 2 leagues.

Or do we wanna do an nfl.com or espn.com fantasy football, where everybody pays a certain amount to register and the winner gets cash. Yahoo also has a league like this, as does the sporting news.

This is the official idea thread so lets hear it, and then we'll make the decision. Mike and I are available to run the leagues and depending on how many we do, and in what types of leagues we run, how many participate, etc...we may need an additional commissioner as well.

Remember we can do more than 1 league from more than 1 source. We do a basic free league and then also a more indepth, high profile one as well if we like.

I am down for whateva......I think just a free Yahoo league (head2head,live draft) would be good, but if not...... I will take your money.

JerseySTEEL
05-27-2005, 01:13 AM
iam in 2 money FF alrdy, I like the idea of a free league in yahoo.and a live draft is best.

BlitzburghRockCity
05-27-2005, 01:21 AM
yeah, Live drafts are the best. Im hoping we can all find a time to get together for a live one.

There is no real point without a Live draft, just my opinion! I like cash, but am down with whatever.

Funds are alittle short so I would prefer a freebie, but if we go to a pay one, I'm still in.

Head to head... pay... free... whatever. ESPN's leagues are free this year also I read.

SteelersFever
05-27-2005, 02:23 PM
Definitely head to head. It keeps things interesting. As BRC stated, depending on the interest we may have two or more leagues. Possibly a few FREE leagues and one pay league. We'll also be running a pay pickem' tournament complete with prizes. We'll let you know more details about that later.

If we have a paid league! When I win it,LOL, :D I will donate half my winnings to SF to keep it going! Sucking Up!?? Just supporting a good cause!

OK, so we've finalized atleast that we're gonna have a live draft! Good ! Now we'll probably end up having a couple free leagues, since everybody wants in and that would be too much for one most likely.

Do we wanna do the yahoo free leagues, or the espn ones, or the nfl.com free leagues? we'll figure out the paid leagues options next.

BB2W
05-27-2005, 07:47 PM
I have always been really pleased with yahoo .......they do everything you need right there......

Maybe as a prize the winner of the free league could get paid with a "Reputation" bonus from Mike or Matt. Or maybe a modified title that reads SFFL Champion or something??? Like a belt that will change hands from year to year......

Ive always been happy w/ yahoo as well, its easy to set up and all the player info you need right at your fingertips. Ive played the sporting news before, and its not bad, but quite as user friendly as yahoo's is. I also like NFL.com's because they have playoff FF, which is cool, cuz it forces you to pick your team based on the playoff teams, and each week, u can make fewer and fewer changes so its more of a challenge.

05-28-2005, 08:31 PM
I'm still interested, though am out of the country between 13th and 24th June.

As this would be a first time event for me I would rather give the free league a go to see just how i do.

Definitely up for a live draft and would make time to suit you guys despite any lag in time being here in England :bouncy: :bouncy:

BlitzburghRockCity
05-28-2005, 09:29 PM
No probs, we'll keep those dates in mind when we schedule the draft so u can be sure to attend it online.

clevestinks
05-28-2005, 10:36 PM
Blitz if you need some to draft for someone else, I`ll pull the double duty. They can give me there top picks and I`ll see what I can come up with. I will play fair. Also if you start a second league but can`t fill it by draft day, I`ll play two, then if you find someone else they can take over. Here if you need!

clevestinks
05-28-2005, 10:37 PM
We won`t draft until at least 2nd or 3rd week in August, will we??

I would think we'll probably wait till atleast training camp starts before we start live drafting.. that way it gives everybody time to research who they want and read up and nobody gets stuck w/a starter who's out for the year, or will miss significant time due to injury, or drug habits :rolleyes: :blurp:

We'll definately do a free league, cuz everybody seems to like them, including myself.... and then the money league can be for those that wanna take the challenge alittle further :cool:

05-29-2005, 11:40 AM
I would love to play...I perfer a free league because I am in enough fantasy leagues and polls involved with money...but I'm game for whatever. I agree, a live draft is the way to go. Just keep me posted!!!

clevestinks
05-29-2005, 12:03 PM
Girls in the league? Oh know!

The only reason I say this is because I`ve been in a league here, $100 a person winner take all, I actuallly won the first year, then the last three have been won by girls. There is only two girls in our league one won twice then the other! :D Sad showing by the men in our league! :D

Looks like the majority wants a FREE league. So, Yahoo! is definitely the way to go. You all better register for the pay pickem tournament though. We're going to have prizes! :bouncy:

BlitzburghRockCity
05-29-2005, 05:30 PM
So we're settled w/ atleast 1 Free yahoo league.. and if need be a second one, depending on the interest level.

Dont worry Im in for pick em league too.. I could use some xtra cash :rofl:

Before you knock Yahoo too much........rememb er that when the others were charging yahoo stuck by us. Plus, if you get the stat tracker it is awesome. You could ask for nothing more.

Yeah, we got 11 teams..... that ain't no good. We should stop at 12 teams. I was in a 14 team league one time, and it sucked. It was hard to fill your roster with good starters.... during a bye week, or if you get an injury you will find yourself starting a bunch of scrubs, or having to start back-ups.
