    Hey Everyone,

    It's time again for fantasy football here at MR. I will activate and run the two leagues from last year and will reserve participation spots for those veterans who were a part in 2011. In the event that a player from last year drops out then those spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis and I have already been contacted regarding the waiting list.

    If you want to claim your spot from last year then you need to post in this thread that you will be playing again and send me a PM with a current email address.

    Waiting List:
    1. ViPhone

    The first regular season NFL game is on September 5th. My plan is to do things just like we did last year because it was so much fun. However, there will be one difference from the previous year, I don't plan on losing this time around. :D

    The drafts are scheduled as follows:

    OSX League Draft - Sunday August 26th 1:15 PM Central (2:15 PM Eastern on the ESPN site)

    iOS League Draft - Sunday August 26th 3:15 PM Central (4:15 PM Eastern on the ESPN site)


    If you cannot make it to the draft then the computer will autodraft for you. Please set up your team draft at the ESPN site if you can't make it and have preferences (I highly recommend this).

    We will be keeping the divisions the same in each league to continue building rivalries. The rules and scoring system have been finalized at the ESPN site so please look over those so you know what to expect. No rules have been changed from last year. Regular season tiebreakers will be determined by the total WR points from your team.

    Looks like the fantasy season has been eagerly participated if all the threads springing up are anything to go by...

    This is probably how boxing ended up with so many versions of championships. :p

    I have activated last year's leagues on ESPN and sent out league wide emails to whatever email addresses were on file. Please let me know if you got the email and if you can successfully log into your team at ESPN.

    Thanks.

    Do you need to re-login if you are in the same league from last year or will it auto join?

    Count this previous Champion in. Have to redeem myself after last years poor showing.

    As for a draft time, don't take my schedule into consideration. Working 70+ hours a week currently so I will more than likely miss the live draft and have to pre-rank my guys.

    Im in. IF possible, IF...can we try and do a draft around 3-4-5 pm EST for us Europeans? Im taking two weeks vaca starting the 18th, so anytime after that is cool. I know I can automatically set my draft, but it never works out.

    Having weighed up the options, I reckon the best way to decide this would be a no holds barred barechested fight on a patch of wasteland.

    I'm sure we can leave it to mscriv to sort out the exact arrangements. :)

    The OSX league has all of our European players. I put them together purposefully so that league could target a EU friendly draft time. We have usually targeted Sundays as draft day because it'a typically better for the most number of people. Doing a weeknight would be tricky depending on people's work schedules.

    There's no way to pick the perfect draft time that works for everyone, but I will do my best to accommodate the most number of people possible.

    When does the season start, I say we draft a week or 2 before that.
