FunkyPeaNutZ was the commissioner last year. Funky, you want to send us a link to the league?

Here's the link to last year's league. It has to be renewed by Funky.

I'll be down for it. But we really need to get more participants. Too many studs on the bench isn't cool. If we can get about 12-16...it would be nice.

What the muppet?

I thought you were talking about real football... not a mutant form of Rugby.

Ahhh the cultural divide between Merikins and ze Englanders. Two cultures
separated by a common language

I would be up for it if it were Fantasy football Premiership (http://uk.premiership.fantasysports.yahoo.com/)

Just go ahead and renew the league so people can start signing up. If we don't get enough people we can cancel.

I signed up, but I've never done a fantasy football league, nor the yahoo league. I will have to figure it out so bear with me.:D

So, can we setup a pre-draft list and have it ready, or do we have to wait until Aug 30th before we can start picking?

seeso

Sweet, 9 people so far! Only 3 more to go.

You can set up a pre-draft list. Just click the Draft Central tab and go to Pre-Draft rankings to edit your rankings. You only have to do that if you don't think you'll be able to be present at the live draft.

If you'll be at the live draft, then you just pick to your heart's content. Check this article (http://football.about.com/od/fantasyfootball/a/fantasydrafttip.htm) out for tips.

Okay, I'll do some reading tonight. I might do a pre-pick list so I don't hold up all the hardcore players at draft time. :p

I created a custom logo for my team "Dakota Drama Queens":

I wanted to put a picture of Farve or Payton on a helmet but their head was just too big for that. :D

You can't hold us up at draft time. There's a time limit for every pick.

That all depends if my guys aren't all locked up on domestic violence, animal cruelty, or in contract dispute for "not making enough". We are the Drama Queens you know. ;)

Edit: I originally wanted to call my drama queen team the "Vikings"...but that was already taken.

LOL, my method of picking is just seeing which players are in the news, and who is listed as a drama queen on google searches. I'll see if these guys can put their money were their mouth is. :biglaugh:

The funny thing is when I Googled "NFL Drama Queens" most of them were Quarter Backs and Wide Receivers. I guess those positions ARE the team. :p

#4 Owens, Terrell (Buf - WR)
#5 Portis, Clinton (Was - RB)
#6 Johnson, Chris (Ten - RB)

The list may change if Michael Vick returns, or if I find dirt/drama in the near future. :shaka:

ROTFL...did you actually think Farve would play for the Vikings? Really? If he did Minnesota and Wisconsin would totally go to war with each other. There would be dead Purple People Eaters and Cheese Heads littering the streets.

Maybe 5 bucks (cost of strings) for UU store. For whoever wants in. Or whatever else some thinks up.

p.s. i will talk trash on our yahoo league message board. but it is not a personal attack on you. only your players, your team in general, and because it's friendly competition. i will never say anything mean spirited about your mother, you specifically or the likes. promise. please don't be offended if i tell you "your kicker sucks", or "mcnabb blows". honestly, i like us guys here at uu. don't want to burn bridges, please don't take it personal.

Ocho Stinko can alway replace Donte. He is proabably one of the bigger drama queens of the league.

Favre is going to be tough to replace though. Ever notice the R sound is before the V sound in Favre. Shouldn't it be Farve or be pronounced FAV-RE?

Cutler was a drama queen in the offseason. Maybe you should go with him.

Ocho Stinko can alway replace Donte. He is proabably one of the bigger drama queens of the league.

Favre is going to be tough to replace though. Ever notice the R sound is before the V sound in Favre. Shouldn't it be Farve or be pronounced FAV-RE?

Meh...we'll see. If he does actually play, he will probably play just enough to break the "most starts" record. Then he will fake an injury, or just quit. I wash my hand of that guy.

I actually think the Vikings might be a team to be reckoned with in the NFC this year. 10-6 last year, Adrian Peterson, strong D, and now Favre. He's not the Favre of old, but it should be interesting.

week 1 begins this thursday with the season opener of the steelers vs. the titans. so if you want points from that game make sure your players are not on the bench or vice versa (put players on the bench if you don't want them taking up that spot). i believe once the game starts (for your specifically chosen/selected players) you cannot switch players from bench to a starting position and vice versa. let's have a fun and exciting season. let the games begin.

Yeah, I did pick my guys based on their drama factor rather on their actually playing abilities. Although I have a decent team, some of the guys I got were through the auto pick (since I was absent from the draft). I dropped more than a few players due to them sucking/not making it into the NFL.

The only thing I find odd is that one of my players was listed as a probable since he was injured, so I don't know if he actually played or just sat on the sidelines. If that's the case, shouldn't the Yahoo program activate one of my benched players? I don't know why my other player gave me a zero. He must not have played much.

Probable means that they usually will play. Best thing to do is wait and see or read local sports reports. TO was just shut down by the Saints defense. He usually isn't going to be shut down like that. I noticed that you have KolB and I'm glad you didn't play him:) Philly likes to throw the ball. While Mcnabb is out I'd start Kolb over Romo. If you click on league rules it explains the point system. I can't access it from work so I can't provide a link.

I just picked up Kolb last week as a backup to Romo - since Vick will probably be unreliable now. I wasn't sure how Kolb would play so I didn't start him. Romo still has more fan points than Kolb. I will probably start playing him once Romo starts choking.

Anyone got a QB or a good RB that they will trade for Brees? Two weeks in a row without a TD. He is killing me.

Look at my team. I am willing to give up Matt Ryan, Kyle O., or L.T. Or a combo of players for Brees. Johnson, Oucho and Clark are non negotiable.

Matty Ice is good for a few points. Brees has produced a whopping 12 points in the last two weeks combined. He'll put up big numbers soon. I think I'm really joking.

Ah, sorry for the stupid question. It's late and I guess I miss-read the numbers. I'm just happy I got big numbers this week despite my guys still being "injured".

Anyone else watch the Giants walk over the Raiders? That was really sad.

So do you guys think old Rush Limbaugh will get his hooks on the Rams?

He's already been booted from the group trying to buy them. Even if he was still a part of that group, there is no way that 3/4 of the owners would approve a sale to a group with Limbaugh in it.

I find it kind of funny that some ones political veiws and opinions (no matter how extreme to one side or the other) would keep them out of a business opportunity. But I guess it is up to that business if they want to let someone in or not.

I agree with seeso, there has been such a media stink about this that the NFL really couldn't let him in.

It's not his views and opinions that are keeping him out of the owners club. It's how he expresses those views and opinions that's the problem.

I'd bet that most of the owners actually side with Rush on politics.

Wow, I didn't know Rush was just part of a group. I thought he was trying to buy the Rams on his own. Although, I found that odd because I didn't think even the mighty Limbaugh was rich enough to do that.

I agree, most of the owners probably have the same political views.

This week will probably be up in the air for me. Romo has got the Bye status. :(

Funny thing...in the "money" league i am in I have brees as my QB and am doing well because I am actually more hands on since i stand to win a few Franklins.

I am also superstitious. Therefore I dont like going against my Gmen...and I dont even want to discuss that game.

I was amazed by the Flutie footage. I thought the player's road race to the bank was the funniest part. Trump is a total douche bag, but I loved when he went after Rosie O'Donnell. Did you see his face when the guy showed him the old $3.75 check from the NFL lawsuit? Classic!
