    Welcome to the 2011 Season of MacRumors Fantasy Football

    [​IMG]

    This thread will be the official record of the iOS League

    The fun starts in post #129


    * Big Ups to Jaffa Cake for designing our logos for this year.




    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The lockout is over and with the return of football comes the return of the MR NFL Fantasy Football League.

    This will be year three and if you are curious you can see how much fun we have had during the past two seasons.

    Last year the following people played:
    1. mscriv (commissioner) - in for 2011
    2. wvuwhat - in for 2011
    3. maflynn - out for 2011, replaced by Jaffa Cake
    4. fireshot91 - in for 2011
    5. creator2456 - in for 2011
    6. barr08
    7. rhett7660 - in for 2011
    8. gauchogolfer
    9. bamaworks
    10. macfan881
    11. nobunaga209 - in for 2011
    12. stonyc - in for 2011

    If you would like to play again this year then I need you to post "up in here" (cue DMX) to reserve your spot in the 2011 league.

    I will give our veterans a chance to reclaim their spot, but if I don't hear from you then I will be allowing new members and one person has already PM'd me to reserve a place in line. So, if you have not played with us before or just missed the cut last year and would like a spot in 2011 then post your interest (first come first serve)*.

    If you look at the previous two years you will see that we run a fun and active league here. Please do not sign up if you don't have the time to commit to managing your team. This thread here is used for routine updates, trash talking, and all around general league fun. I run a fair league with fair rules and most, if not all, potential issues are handled before the league starts by gathering everyone's input. (For example, how to handle ties, etc.)

    So, let me know if you have any questions and let's get this thing going.

    * I'm considering running two leagues if we have enough interest. We'll have to see how it works out.

    I'd love to play, so if I have to I can make someone disappear. ;)

    I thought about you from all the sports comments I see you making. I'm glad to see you're interested and we'll just see how things shape up. At a minimum I run 8 team leagues so depending on sign ups we very well could have enough for more than one league. If not then you're #2 on the sign up list. Stay tuned....

    Ah, but some people are very keen.

    As reigning MacRumors Fantasy champion at the other code, I feel I have a duty to try and garner more silverware no matter how oddly shaped the balls are. :cool:

    Maflynn is unable to play this year. His spot has been filled by Jaffa Cake.

    Moyank24 has the next spot in line followed by Rick Snagwell.

    Thank you, Commissioner mscriv!

    I'm naturally eager to steal a march on my rivals, so my first pre-season training session is taking place right now. Unfortunately, as the draft hasn't taken place I haven't any players so it's a bit lonely.

    Ho-hum. :eek:

    Let training camp begin!

    What kind of champion would I be if I didn't defend the title?! :cool:

    As far as two leagues goes, the more the merrier. We just need to set out the rules on how to compare League Champs to determine a true MR Champ.

    With the post above that's already 3...so it might not be a bad idea. Hopefully with everyone's excitement about Football being back, there will be a lot of interest.

    I'm pretty sure that if we have enough I will be willing to run a second league. We will have to make a new thread for that league as all of the fun in playing in a MR league is the trash talking and stuff that goes along with the thread. I always make the leagues public so anyone who isn't playing, but wants to follow along can do so. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet as there are still four veterans who have yet to claim their spots.

    I'd like a spot if a veteran decides not to play and the league is free.

    My leagues are always free and just for fun and MR bragging rights.

    Good; you can't put a price on that anyway!

    I do think it would be cool if someone who is graphically skilled could make up an avatar sized trophy of some MR flavor that could be bestowed upon the winner at the end of the season. That way they could "wear their win" as an avatar whenever they wanted. It also could generate more interest across the community. I don't know, kinda like, when the site hosts contests and they give someone a ribbon or acknowledgment by their avatar.

    Some of you may have never played fantasy sports in a forum setting like this, but I think it's really fun. It's about the community and the interaction between those in the league and, to me, a forum is a much easier way to do this as opposed to just communicating through the host site (ESPN, FOX, etc.). I'm sure some of our veteran players could chime in with their own thoughts in this area.
