The lights are on
It's that time of year again. Last season Nate and the Gamerscore Legion kicked all of our butts and won the Championship.
This year we are going to use ESPN again. I have sent emails to all of the people that played last season. So check your emails.
Last season we only had 6 teams. I'd really like to see a bigger group of people this time around. It's a lot of fun and it's not time consuming at all like some people seem to think. After all, this is just for fun. The prize for winning is just bragging rights and strippers. So please join!
In order to join, all you have to do is send me a conversation telling me what your email address is. I will then send you an invite. Note that if you do not have an ESPN account you will have to create one. Simple as that.
Also like last year we will use this thread as a way to communicate with each other throughout the season. We also need to figure out a time for our Draft that works for everyone. I believe the deadline for a draft is a day or two before the first NFL game.
Discuss and ask questions below.

sick! totally not missing this one
Ok I sent out invites to 3 people so we should have a total of 9 teams for this season. Woop! Woop! More than 6 so I'm happy.
So what draft date and time would be best for everyone? As for me, Sept. 1st would be best for me. I should be free for that day. Aug. 27th and 29th in the late evening should also work for me.Also note that if you are not able to make it to the draft the computer will draft your team for you. So it's not mandatory for you to be there, but you might not end up with the team you want. Four years ago I wasn't able to make the draft and the computer gave me the championship winning team. So sometimes it works.
I also made a thread for this topic in the "MSG Board" for the league. We can also discuss things there as well. Also remember that we have to have the draft date before Sept. 5, since that's the first game of the season.
September 1st around 7pm would work for me and August 29th around 8pm both times are EST
They will call me communist, they will call me scum. But it's worth it, Canadians will think we're smart, at least they'll think we are not as dumb.
I can do September 1st around 9:30pm EST, and August 29th around 8pm EST.
Any day of the week other than Sunday or Thursday after 5PM central
All week days after 8 cst, and all weekends after 5 cst
Ok how does Sept. 1st at 9pm est/ 8pm central sound to everyone?
Also, we can set how much time we have when choosing picks in each round. The default time is 90 seconds, but we can also choose 30, 60, or 120 seconds as well. Does something like that matter to you guys or do you just want to keep it at 90?
I know nothing about Fantasy Football... or what makes a good Fantasy player... so feel free to mop the floor with me. The previously mentioned time should also work for me draft wise.
FEAR THE MONARCH!
90 or 60
the draft date works too
JMan's getting in on it this year? Whoo! Now it's a party. And that date works for me.
I'm good with the date and time...as far as selecting between rounds goes, I think 90 seconds is fine...we don't have to wait the clock out if we pick early do we?
"You know nothing Jon Snow"
90 is fine day and time work.
I'm good with any and all thoughts expressed so far (I know, I make it hard)
