Hey gang,

I'd like to run a new keeper league this year using yahoo. I was commissioner of a league last year with owners who were not that committed, and it sucked. I would like to get together a league of 10-12 teams. I'll set up all the rules for a league vote before a live draft.

Newbies to fantasy football are welcome, as I'd help them out for their first season. Suckering a new FF player just ain't that fun in my book.

You MUST be committed as this is a keeper league!

Anybody interested?

I'd do it, if we can actually get 10 committed guys/gals to do it. Nothing sucks more than a fantasy league where everyone misses the live draft and 2 or 3 guys participate during the year.

Please don't join if your not gonna keep up with the team every week.

Get some dedicated players and I'm definately in. I've played fantasy football for 2 years and participated in 6 leagues, I've won 4 of them. I always get mad when someone stops playing just because their team sucks. If my team ended up in bad shape, I'd try everything to make it better, Trades, FA, Etc. Of course, I never have to worry bout those things :wink: lol... j/k about that.

last year i was in one, and I was in first, but then the people in last started to trade their best players to their fiends and created a 'super' team...

Count me in. I was in a regular league last year. I took first for the reg. season, but ended up getting beat in the playoffs.

Great!

So we've got my wife and I, that's 2...then...

midgensa from Virginia,
muchluv4smoot from ND,
Vikes2611 from Kentucky,
Eyedea
and, alwaysamossfan from Virginia

Guess we'll need to do a live draft on-line huh? lol

OK, so we'll need at least 3 more teams, preferable 5

We'll need to bounce around ideas for team size (I was thinking a 18 player roster), scoring rules ect.

We used Yahoo last year, is that ok with everyone?

I would also like it to be a keeper league, with the ability to keep 3 or up to five players into next year and use your draft picks to keep them.

I also figure this will be a no fee league. Bragging rights only, unless there's a group consensus therwise.

E-amil me and we can get a list started with each of the owners and get stuff hammered out.

It's gonna be fun! I can't wait!

Try to keep the league around 12 people and I think it will be a lot of people, I was the first to say I was in though ... lol ... I would love doing a keeper league with a good crew of guys ... I think it would be easiest to do the draft online, but either way ...

Ok I've PMed those that are interested. The first ones to respond are in! I'm going to limit the number of teams to 12.

Oh and btw, a keeper league is just one that at the start of next year, you'll be able to "keep" anywhere from 1-all of your players (depending on league rules, usually 3-5) and in exchange for being allowed to keep your studs, you will lose the first X rounds of the draft.

Once I get back twelve responses, we'll start hammering out the little details via e-mail.

Keeper leagues are leagues where you get to keep so many players from your team, for the next year.

An example would be, everyone would get to keep 3 players that they drafted after round 4. All the rest of the players go back into the draft, for the next year of fantasy.

PB Dragon,

Please add me to the list of league players...

I'll be more than glad to do my part every week......

I'll probably only join this one and the one with the PPO Site......

This will be a first for me, so I don't want to over extend myself....sounds like a great way to get started...

Thanks, Ned

Hey,
I just went to Yahoo and checked out the Fantasy Football section in their games. It says taht registration is now over for leagues? Does anyone know if that is just from last season? Obviously it would be very early to close registration seeing how far away the NFL season is from starting. Anyone know anything about that?

PBDragon
04-21-2005, 11:35 PM
Just an update for everyone so far, we have 10 confirmed teams in the league. I've recieved your PM and am saving the slot for you!

We do still have a max of 2 slots left.

VikingNed and DarrinNelsonGuy, if you'd like to join just shot me a PM with your first name, email address, and if you've played FF before.

I'll be sending out an email to all of you once we get the last two teams settled. I will be sharing your email addresses with other members of this league, for personal contact about trades ect.

I can't wait for Saturdays draft, I'm putting KFAN on the radio at work so I don't miss anything! LOL

Go Vikes!!!!

Yeah, they don't open it up until July I believe for the 2005 season.
