Who's interested in joining a TAT Fantasy Football League?

I've only played in one fantasy league (last year) and I've never managed a league. If we have another TATeur who has experience managing a league, and wants to commit to running one for TAT members, that would be great! Just post in this thread that you want to do that. If not, I'm more than willing to do my rookie best to set up and manage the league. I won't want to do anything fancy, just a simple league.

Let's start by seeing how many would be interested in joining a league.

Keep in mind that if I manage it, there will be a live draft at a specific time that you'll have to attend.

I might be interested in playing, as long as the scoring isn't as complicated as the last TAT Olympics, that the math genius Tog implemented, lol. ;)

I would participate. Even if I can't make the draft, I would have no problem doing an auto-draft and managing that team. I mostly pick the highest ranked player available anyway.

Would like to, but I am not that knowledgeable of how to play fantasy leagues. My fantasies usually involve Genie and Anna and....
Forget that last part.

Will we still have NFL Challenge? I like that one.

The league I play in at nfl.com handles all the scoring. For those who have never played (I was intimidated for years) It's mostly managing your team on a weekly basis - bringing a player off the bench to replace a player who's on a bye, replacing a player who's been injured, etc.

And, ponchi, when I first played last year it was really easy to understand. I handled the draft and weekly playing easily without any help.

I'm going to hedge my bets and only say maybe for now...I'm already in 3 leagues. The one I run is entering it's 14th season so if anyone has any questions definitely feel free to ask! I'll check back closer to the draft date and see how many there are.

I'm in to participate as well. I've been in fantasy football leagues for maybe 8 years now and can answer questions for those who haven't done it before. It's not as complicated or as scary as you may think, especially if you already know football.

FYI, I've been in free leagues managed through Yahoo, ESPN, CBS Sportsline, and NFL.com. They all work about the same scoring wise depending on how the manager sets up special parameters and players, it's the UI that varies a bit, some with more bells and whistles than others.

We need at least 10 people, and have a little time to put it together.

So far we have 5 committments:

I'll commit. Never done one, but have lots of family that do (although the vast bulk rarely follow tennis).

Sooooper easy. You can just "auto-draft" and either go from there or do nothing. It's easy and fun.

Additional requirement: all competitors must submit nude pics. Mine are ready to go.

Kirk, if you get enough people to play, do you know what date you plan on having the draft?

Kirkus

I hadn't really gotten that far. It doesn't look like we're going to get enough so I was pretty much writing it off for this year.

Maybe next year...was a good idea....just hard for me to commit to ANOTHER league ;)

Oh yeah. Not a big deal really. A few people mentioned it at the end of last year's season so I was willing to give it a go - even though I have no idea how to do it. LOL.

I want to officially call this off so people have time to join another league if they want to.

I'll throw it out there again next year.

Too bad, would have been fun. Thanks for trying to set it up, Kirkus.

Not really. We'd still have been a few short.

I hope next year. :yes:

I'll ask sooner.

Well, if these 5 TATers (along with yourself Kirk) decide to play next year, and Ptmcmahon, Tog, & myself commit, then you only need 1-3 more for a 10 or 12 team league. We ought to be able to drag 1 more kicking & screaming member into the FF arena, right? :cheesy:
