Default Pickems Team League !!

I have a suggestion.

Form a team of three to compete in a Pickems Team League !!

I could start it, or someone else could......at yahoo, ESPN or wherever else pickems is played

Anyway, the teams would be formed in groups of three fans of given NFL teams.

I am considering pitching this on MBs for every NFL team, but I thought I would throw it out here first to see what you folks thought in addition to a Browns site of two that I frequent.

I've never seen this sort of pickems league done before, and there would have to be some seperate site used to compilation of points and such because the pickems site would only compile individual points.

So, unless you have some specific questions.... what do you think ?? ..... and do you think 3 of you folks would be interested enough to participate ??

Have you considered attempting this on, you know, like one of your own boards? One where you use your real name and stuff?

After the LITP SFNFC debacle of 07, I doubt you'll have many takers...

I have already floated this out on a couple of Browns boards, but I also wanted to see what you folks here at SF thought.

....and could you translate that last bit for me ?? I don't do the text thing...........

LITP SFNFC ?? I suppose the SF is Steeler Fever, but I can't be sure on the rest. I do hope it isn't another sad assumptive comment on how bad you claim I was knocked out last season ??

An interloper was given the keys to a fantasy league and imploded in a bout of "the crazies", pretty much locking everyone out of the league.

Not good precedent, I'm afraid...

Not to mention it was someone I talked to frequently, even outside of the boards.

That debacle took forever for us to fix.

Its not you... its us...

Had that happen once in a league about three years ago. Dude wanted everyone to give their team actual NFL team names........Steelers, Browns, Jets, etc.

Then about four weeks in, his team starts getting very lopsided trades from a guy who never even showed up for the draft. Then each person who complained about the trades got locked out until NO ONE but him was able to do anything but watch the league.

Anyway, I just thought it would be a fun way to give fans bragging rights beyond what their team does during the season. Don't get me wrong, I figure to enjoy this coming season more than any in about twenty years, but as I like to say (though I think Dudley Moore said it first in Arthur.........Isn't fun the best thing to have ??
