I know it is early on but I am interested in having a fantsy football league this year. Would anyone be interestd in playing? I have not setup the league just want to get your feedback before I start the process. Any ideas on where I should start the league? Yahoo, ESPN, Foxsports, ect. I have done a Yahoo league before but am open to other ideas you may have. I will post this on facebook too but wanted you guys to get the first shot at choosing a league and helping with setup ideas if you are interested. If not, facebook will be my next option. Thanks, in advance. I think it would be fun.

Personally, I like Yahoo's system better but ESPN is fine with me. Prefer Yahoo...just let me know when you get the ball rolling.

BTW, is there some sorta Facebook group for TTalk?

I have played on Yahoo, ESPN, NFL.com, AOL and Fleaflicker.

Yahoo is the best. It is easy to set up to what scoring you want, size of league, IDP players, rosters etc.

Thanks for the reminder Gary. I just signed up.

Btw, are you set on August 22 for the draft? That seems a bit early if the first game is Thursday, September 9th. Sunday, Sept. 5th would give us a better idea of who to draft.

Fire ants are known for their lively and aggressive behavior, swarming over anyone or anything that disturbs their nest, often attacking wild animals, baby animals, pets or people, in some instances, even killing them. Their painful stings affect about 40% of people in infested areas each year. Twenty million people a year are stung by fireants in the United States!

It ain't over yet guys. The ESPN league has two weeks of scoring for each playoff round. If you look, we are in week 14/15 right now, but the next level is 16/17. So basically, add your points from this week to your points next week and whoever has the higher total moves on.

Why did you change it to fourteen? He could have joined easily without adding anymore since the total is at eleven right now. We still need one more member to get it to an even number.

gary, 14 teams would be too much. 12 is already too much, but I'm ok with it. All the leagues I've started/joined only have 10 teams.

Sorry I thought there twelve but I took care of it. I get in a hurry a lot of times but I still need one more team to be full.
