Anyone interested in forming a Steelers fever league ? I'm not joining any of my leagues from work this year because I find myself playing some steeler players that I probably shouldn't . And when your talking throwing $50 to $100 bucks down the drain if you play your Steeler favorites its not smart business.
That being said I love to draft and trade players . I love the trash talk and bragging rights . ( I actually did well a few years back and won the league ) I figure with all the ball bustin we lay upon each other why not add a little competive fuel to the fire .

Anyone interested hit me up . I'm thinking a free to play league with a live online draft. I would set it up unless theres a more experienced commish who would like to do it. ( more power to ya) Lord knows 2 jobs and 3 kids keeps me busy enough ! :drink:


if this is the wrong forum for this , feel free to bump it where it needs to be , thanks !

if by "hold my hand and motivate me" you mean relentlessly pm you when you get inactive i'm sure we could all help you out. it sdoesn't take more than ten minutes to make your changes each week during a normal week. and most of the discussion would be happening here so you would always have a reminder. plus it's really fun, especially the draft

Just looked over the scoring and noticed we're using return yards, as well as team defenses. Do the yardage points go to the individual return man and if there is a return TD, does both the player and the defense score?

Scoring is Scoring to me everybody plays by the same rules lol

In my leauge with my family we have 2 QBs , and extra points for 40+ yard plays and TDs

also if the QB throws pic 6s , he gets minues the 6 points since he threw a TD to the other team (along with the minus for the INT)

we make it crazy and fun ... different then a lot of leagues

Questions;

What time were people thinking for having the draft? I am interested in being the 14th (if space still remains) but it obviously depends on the time as I am 5 hours ahead of Eastern in the UK.

What type of league is being put together?

Does anyone know the max number of leagues you can play in on NFL.com? I have 2, I'm sure the max is three, but don't want to sell anyone down the river when it turns out I can't join.

Any answers to the questions above would be great. Always keen for a bit of fantasy.

Someone dropped out so we still need 1 more to make it even. If we don't get one we will have to convert to a points league instead of a head to head league. Ask around , I've been trying . No luck so far .

RB Bell
RB D. Williams

other than getting fucked with the williams pick, i think it has good potential. miller is gonna be a huge trade asset when he comes back, so is bell if he chooses to trade him. but when it came to get a third wr, there were two picks before me, and i had both tavon austin and mike wallace on the board, and both were picked subsequently, leaving me with the two starting wideouts of tampa.
