    It's MR NFL Fantasy Football time! I have reactivated the three leagues from last year on ESPN so some of you may have already gotten an email. I need to hear from everyone who wants to play again this year. So, please post in the thread of your designated league and let all of us know if you are playing this year. If we have anyone drop out of the league then we will look at new players joining.

    This thread will be for the Mac OS League and includes the following team owners:

    Macrumors Mac OS League:

    We need to look at possible draft times. Please post what times you might be available and what days/time you know you won't be available. Obviously we can't accommodate everyone's schedule, but we will do our best. I can already tell you that my schedule will only allow for weekend or weekday evening draft times in the US Central time zone.

    Please ensure that you can access your team at the league ESPN site. If you have any questions or problems let me know. Don't wait until the last minute to check your team and mess up the draft for everyone else. Make sure everything is working as it's supposed to and let me know if something is wrong.

    I'm in. Sundays are tough for me for draft day, but I'm flexible.

    Well, sadly, our friend @maflynn will not be joining us this year for fantasy football. Everyone wish him a fond farewell.

    Taking his place will be a new player, @Fthree. Let's wish him/her a big welcome. You veterans be on your best behavior around the newbies. :D

    So..I've been doing this for a few years, I /think/ from the first year it started; however, I never understood the distinction between the various leagues. IIRC it's because there were just too many people signed up, so you had to break up the players into two (and then three) leagues, yes?

    I believe it's set up like that so we can play each other then when it comes down to the top from each league, it's a head to head and winner take all. Which is bragging rights, I think. I could be wrong. It's been known to happen here and there. :)

    You are both correct. Over the years more and more people wanted to play so we added additional leagues. There is no way for the folks in different leagues to compete against each other, but they can compare scores for bragging rights.

    Okay people,

    We have not heard from our friend Stonyc and he has not been around MR for quite some time according to his profile. With Austinillini dropping out and the season starting next week I'm gonna go ahead and change this league from 10 teams to 8 teams and we'll roll onward. If you have never played in a 8 team league before it's pretty competitive because everyone ends up with a decent team.

    How does this Thursday night sound for the draft? Let's say 9 PM US Central time? Is that workable for most of us?

    Can we do it at a later time, or during the weekend? That is 5am for me here in Greece. I thought this draft was usually for people that have later time zones.

    Would everyone be okay with pushing it back an hour to 10 PM US Central?

    That would make it 6AM for you @The.316.
