    Oh yes. Send the women and children home, tap the keg, get your gear, stretch out those hammies, and be afraid. Be very afraid.

    It's time, ladies and gentlemen, for the 4th Annual Talkbass Fantasy Football League.

    Let's revisit the past, shall we?

    Year 1
    In the first year, Jazzbo's "Jazzers" took the title, embarrassing all.

    Year 2
    Farley's "The Flying Hellfish" take the 2nd Fantasy Football crown.

    Year 3
    Jazzbo's "Jazzers" take the title again, proving to be the dominant player in all of Talkbassdom.

    So, it's time to start a league again. I would really really really like to do a live draft. Is this feasible? Is anybody on dial-up, or have we all joined the 21st century?

    We'll do 10 teams, like last year. PM me for the league password and info. I'll post with all the settings in a few, although nothing will really be different.

    I'm saving spots for JimK, Embellisher, PMKelly, Cassanova and JRthebassguy. So that leaves 4 spots. What say we all?
     
  2. I'm in. If the Jazzbo has no problem with that.
     
  3. Come along children...theres nothing to see here.

    I don't get it.
     
  5. I've participated in years 1 and 3, my best finish being #2 in year one.


    Count me in.

    my yahoo name is jakesaysrelax

    I'm also thinking of new names for my team. My old one was pretty lame. I'm doing some scouting as I type this.


    edit: added stuff.

    Okay, just so everybody knows, I've gotten your PMs. So, it looks like we're close to a full league.

    I do need an answer on the live draft question though. I can't finish setup of the league, (i.e. you guys can't sign up either), until we decide this. I'm pushing for it, but if you have dial-up you probably are against it.

    What say you guys?

    I would prefer a live draft. The more control over our picks the better.

    But - I'm ok with whatever the masses decide. :D
     
  11. I really don't care, either way.
     
  12. What is it?
     
  13. i tried sending you a pm, not sure if you got it. I'll send another.

    Fantasy Football is a game, hosted by Yahoo, in which teams pick a roster of existing NFL players, (in a draft like fashion, first come, first served), with some bench players. You establish a starting team, (1 QB, 2 RBs, 3WRS, etc.), to compete against another teams. Individual player's statistics are tallied, and whichever team scores higher, wins. Best record at the end of the season make the playoffs, single elimination, and a champion is crowned.

    So, we have several nods for a live draft.

    I propose a Saturday morning, as that might be the best time. I'm thinking something along the lines, if we are to do it, of about 10am, PST.

    What say you all?
     


  15. 10am pst (noon where I am) on a Saturday would be perfect. A live draft would be fun.


    what happens if someone misses the live draft?
