Haven't gotten an invite to join this year's league and haven't seen anything here...is the vmb.com fantasy league dead?

I sent a reminder to whoever set it up. If I don't get an invite by the end of next week I'll likely set one up myself.

Actually, scratch that.

The old league doesn't show up on my yahoo page anymore so I'm assuming the other member isn't running it again. I set up a new league. Feel free to join. First come, first served.

I'm in. I didn't see anything in the scoring for return yards(which is fine). If you do want to give points for punt/kickoff yards, I'd rather they be 25 per point instead of 10.

I added points for return yards. 25 per point. I also added .5 points for first downs (receiving, passing, and rushing).

I'd like to join but the draft time of Sunday the 24th @ 11:15am doesn't work for me. Seems like a pretty bad time to have a draft

It's noon (EST) on a weekend day. I had it on Saturday and someone asked me to move it.

I can push it back some if you'd like, I'm not attached to the time.

There's always someone that can't make the draft time no matter what time it is. Sunday's are good with me as I have soccer games starting back up on saturdays for both my kids this next week. My saturday afternoon's are shot :)

Eh, no big deal. I'm actually out of town next weekend and have no idea when I'll get back home Sunday. The Nodak Norsemen will just take this year off.

It has actually filled at this point. However, it's only 10 members deep at the moment. However, I have now moved the number of players to 12. So as long as someone doesn't beat you, you should be good to join.

Guess that Gordon pick isn't going to work out

Two people with knowledge confirm the full 1-year ban for Josh Gordon was upheld. Wow.

Did you keep him? I'm hearing he might only end up with an 8-10 game suspension?

He's on my bench. I plan on making the playoffs so there he'll stay, marinating until I can unleash last year's receiving champion as my WR3.

Be afraid.

Heck, I am still upset that I had to miss the actual draft. I have to say though, the auto pick served me well. I am shooting for 2-0. :)

My team has put up a ridiculous 153 pts this week in this league. I still might lose. :lol:

Looks like I ended up winning. 154.52 to 154.36. Closest game I've ever won I think. Garcon was on the other team and had a catch for like 12 yards as the last play of the game. If he would have had 14 yards, I would have lost.

Thank you, Demi, for having the only worst team than me. I was worried!

I've had a lot of close games this season and Calvin Johnson missed a lot of time as well which hurt me pretty badly. I actually have the 4th most points in the league despite being in 8th place.

It's gonna be a fun championship game. Good luck! :smilevike:
