I figure now that the lockout is over we could talk about creating a league. I personally would like to hold off on a draft until late August, that way if someone gets injured in some of the training camps or early preseason games we can avoid him or pick him up in the later rounds.

I think first order of business would be to vote on which website to use. After that we get participants and vote on a draft day.

I'll probably keep the poll open for a few more days but it appears that people either don't care where we play or don't want to play (70 views and only 5 votes dry.gif ).

We'll see what happens shortly...

I'd want to join, but I am personally not a fan of ESPN just because I have a difficult time understanding the way they list their stats and I just don't like their set up.

I prefer Yahoo because I find it user friendly for more novice users, but last year I took a peak at the league offered on NFL.com and was pretty impressed with how it looked. I would be willing to give that site a try as well. smile.gif

So here's how I figure the schedule will break down:

August 5th: Close poll--create league
August 5th-14th: Add members (until 10-12 spots fill up); suggestions for draft date
August 14th- Sept ?: Draft

Biggest scheduling problems is late August and back to school for some of you guys along with the first weekend of September and Labor Day.

ESPN League it is

Password: Weather Nerds Are Belong To Us

Suggestions for division names will be appreciated along with draft dates/times.

Right now the draft is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, August 21st at 6:00 PM ET.

Scoring is standard. Decided to go with 6 team playoff with top team in each division getting a bye. Playoff seeding is based on intra-divisional record.

Ugh...apparently there are two ways to create a custom league and this version doesn't allow the league creater to change the draft date and time and the amount of teams eligible to play. If the draft becomes problematic and or if a few more people want to play after we hit 10, then I may need to create a different one.

Alright, but only cuz I like ya. biggrin.gif

Everyone rejoin into this league: New League

Password: The Tropics Are Boring

12 teams is the max I'm willing to go. The talent pool becomes too dispersed. Create a new one and hopefully that fills up. biggrin.gif

Everything is the same in terms of settings. One minor change is in order to veto a trade we must get the majority of teams to veto (7 or more).
