I'd be up for joining a league if anyone would set one up.

I'm down. I think ESPN has one of the better platforms. If we can get at least 10 people together I'll set something up. Bragging rights only?

Does anyone play on NFL.com? I'd like to get 10 people on there. That's where I've always played, and I really enjoy it.

There is a FF league already set up in Yahoo but I'm not sure if the people there actually check the board much anymore.

At any rate, if another is created I'll gladly join it. I usually play 2-3 teams a year anyway.

I'd be down for $20-$40 a piece or just bragging rights, either works for me.

Ill play! But the comment that espn is best is completely false, they have 2 week playoffs which brings you into week 17 for the final. The week when players sit on great teams, no fair for teams who competed all year. I'd be down for a 20 entry too, imo yahoo has the best engine. I don't need it to be money, I am already in a couple money leagues, but if it is I'm game as well.

6 points per passing TD? If not you took a QB wayyyy to soon, and don't have good enough RBs to win, unless Miller and Bell pan out, and only one elite WR.

Okay since everyone quit talking about the subject at hand, I'm going to make a league. After everyone gets in a decision on free or entry fee will be voted on. And that has to be unanimous, or it stays free. If there is money on it, it will be through a site like league safe, or the other one that charges no interest I heard good things about. I am okay with free or entry fee, so I wont vote.

If you want in please pm your email.

I will also make another thread specifically for this league, so people can chime in there.

The engine will be yahoo, it's very user friendly.

NFL.com's fantasy football, and their website in general, is very irritating. Clunky interface and it seems like every newly loaded page has a video that auto-plays. :steamed: Give another place (like yahoo) a try and you'll see how much easier it is. Although yahoo does seem to be making changes to their fantasy stuff lately...

Yeah. I feel you on the video thing, but I've been playing on NFL.com for 5-6 years. I don't mind it. I'm sure they are all fine, though. I can't imagine they are super, duper different. They all have the same general theme/idea.

Worst part is 2 week default playoffs, brings final into week 17, when no league worth it's salt should be playing. Imagine having money on a league, and you are in the final and the Packers sit Rogers.

You think? I make it into the playoffs in almost all of my leagues (usually play 3 or 4 a year), and make it to the Championship game quite often as well...I never felt I lost a game due to "my player(s) being sat." I don't believe I ever ran into that problem. Besides, sometimes you just have to adjust to those things. No complaints here. I win a fair amount, so I can't whine about it. I must know what I'm doing. :D

Custom? I was looking at public and it had that silly format.

It is just a standard NFL-Managed league.

I honestly can't remember if I'm used to playing into Week 17 or not. I know I never thought it was an issue or worth a complaint, lol, so maybe it does only go to Week 16--and maybe it has been that way for a while. I'm not sure. I just know it said that when I joined the league. It listed that as part of the general rules. Thought it was worth mentioning. I'm assuming it's that way for all non-custom leagues. I'll find out soon enough, because I'll be joining a few more. :)
