CB Fantasy Football League (in Contests)

Mem July 23 2006 1:51 PM EDT

Yes, that's right, I'm now taking applications for up to 12 people to join a fantasy football league. The entry fee will be 2 mil, which does not have to be paid until Week 8. Let me know if you guys/gals are interested. (I'll be using Yahoo if we get enough people.)

th00p July 23 2006 1:52 PM EDT

2mil?!?! No way man!

Halcyon July 23 2006 2:02 PM EDT

Count me in! Are you going to use the live draft, or ?

Mem July 23 2006 2:41 PM EDT

DAWG is in for sure now too. That makes three. Only 9 spots left. Hurry and get in now!

ThatOneMan July 23 2006 2:59 PM EDT

i would join but im poor :(

deifeln July 23 2006 6:37 PM EDT


Is this US Football? If so, please count me in.

Mikel July 23 2006 8:21 PM EDT

Dielfin, it is US Football. And I'm in as well.

Mem July 23 2006 9:36 PM EDT

It is the National Football League we're talking about here. Not soccer. So if deifeln is in that puts us at 5 people. There's room for 7 more at most. Ranger may be playing as well, so hurry, hurry, hurry. Space is limited!

And hey! I used to play D&D, novice. That's an unfair stereotype.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 23 2006 9:45 PM EDT

gross generalizations are always wrong

Halcyon July 26 2006 2:46 PM EDT

I always played both. Go figure :) Any general idea of what day/time we are shooting for, for the draft? I know I am mostly avalible from 6am-3pm est. Subject to change though.

Adminedyit [Superheros] July 26 2006 2:56 PM EDT

count me in :)

Mem July 26 2006 7:29 PM EDT

We need to get at least two more people to be in this. If it's a problem of money that you're not interested in joining let me know. I may think about lowering the entry fee. Without those two more people we aren't going to do it though.

Mem July 26 2006 10:03 PM EDT

Ok, Ranger's in for sure now too. That means only one more person to join and we're a go. Up to five more people can join though. Hurry and join now! Only a few weeks left until the preseason starts!

{CB1}Lukeyman July 26 2006 11:48 PM EDT

Heck, why not, but it might be a long while before you get my 2 mill :p

Mem July 29 2006 7:44 PM EDT

Ok, folks. Go here to join the league I created for this contest. The league password is "cb2". Go ahead and create your teams and I'll let you know soon when our draft will be held.

P.S. Money is not due until Week 8 of the regular season, so don't worry about it for now.

Mem July 29 2006 8:03 PM EDT

Ok. Well, apparently that was the wrong link. The correct one is here... really, it is.

When you get there select 'Join Custom' and when it prompts you to enter the league ID# enter '296801' and the password is still 'cb2'. Then just go ahead and create your team. I'll keep you all informed as to when we're going to be drafting. Good luck!

Solomon Grundy July 29 2006 8:11 PM EDT

If you still have a spot for another then I'm game.

Mem July 29 2006 8:38 PM EDT

The more the merrier, Solomon.

Halcyon July 29 2006 11:27 PM EDT

I'm in. Only the third to register ... need the others :)

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 30 2006 1:40 AM EDT

I signed up.

{CB1}Lukeyman July 30 2006 2:39 PM EDT

I'm in!

Mem July 30 2006 10:25 PM EDT

Ok, guys. Let's keep our CB names in our team names so there isn't any confusion.

Mem August 1 2006 6:33 PM EDT

Ok. The draft date has been set for August 27th, two weeks before the season starts. The time has not been set, but we can do it whenever is most convenient for all of you since I don't have class at all that day. We will be using CB chat to draft (our own room, of course, so as not to disturb anyone).

There are still a few of you who have not signed up yet! Please do so soon.

Also, if you would like to send your entry fee you may do so now. It doesn't have to all be up front, and you're more than welcome to pay in installments. Just remember that the full two million must be to my character, Fantasy Football Pool, by October 29th (Week 8 of regular season play).

I also would like to know if you all would like to change back to a head-to-head league if we have 8 or more people. It's looking like we're going to assuming everyone who said they were going to join joins. So let me know. I'd prefer it to be that if we can, but if not we'll still have lots of fun.

Thanks for playing, guys, and good luck!

{CB1}Lukeyman August 2 2006 10:34 PM EDT

I can't find my way back to like, my page for the fantasy football so I can change the name.... =S

Mem August 2 2006 10:45 PM EDT

This is our league's site. If you still can't get in then just create a new one and I'll delete the old one.

Halcyon August 3 2006 12:28 AM EDT

I'd rather not have head to head

deifeln August 4 2006 12:08 AM EDT

I have registered. I haven't been blending recently, but I'll be back in another week or two.

Mem August 4 2006 2:44 PM EDT

Forgive me for not saying previous, but here are the prizes:

1st place-- 16 mil
2nd place-- 3 mil
3rd place-- 1 mil

The winner will also receive an as yet undecided named item that will serve as their trophy. Good luck!

(By the way, with the change back to head-to-head competition we've also gone to a playoff system. The rules for the playoff are outlined in the league rules. Basically it's a six team, three week playoff starting with Week 13 of the NFL season.)

P.S. And as always, if you'd like to see any rules changes put it up for a vote here. I'll be happy to accommodate you all, so long as you're in the majority.

Halcyon August 4 2006 4:27 PM EDT

I'm thinking we need to vote, for an offline draft. Seeing as how some of us, won't be able to make a live draft.

In such case, you can select prospects, and the system will select them according to the order/avalibility that you have selected them.

Mem August 4 2006 9:31 PM EDT

You do realize that you could always fill out that list and then send it to me and we could pick for you... I find that humans are smarter than computers anyway...

Adminedyit [Superheros] August 5 2006 9:28 AM EDT

when do we draft? lets get it on!!!!

Mem August 5 2006 11:37 AM EDT

"The draft date has been set for August 27th, two weeks before the season starts."

Perhaps someone should read before opening their mouth... ;P

P.S. The Hall of Fame game, which opens the preseason, is this Sunday. Tune in so you can do some research!

Mem August 8 2006 1:00 AM EDT

So far only DAWG, edyit, and myself have paid their entry fee. You've still got a little over two months to have it in, but don't forget about it! Don't procrastinate!

Who caught the Hall of Fame game? Not really very exciting... Oh well. September 7th will be here soon enough. ;)

Halcyon August 8 2006 2:51 AM EDT

I'll have mine. Just working on paying off a small debt, then will have some money set aside, and start saving for the poll money

Halcyon August 8 2006 2:52 AM EDT

Forgive me for not saying previous, but here are the prizes:

1st place-- 16 mil
2nd place-- 3 mil
3rd place-- 1 mil

Concidering it's 2M to get in .. shouldn't 3rd be above that?

Mem August 8 2006 8:36 AM EDT

Deifeln didn't even want a 3rd prize, so this is the compromise. At least you get something for coming in 3rd. It's just a consolation prize though. It shouldn't be outstanding.

velvetpickle August 10 2006 8:44 AM EDT

"Who caught the Hall of Fame game? Not really very exciting..."

Donovan McNabb with a perfect series to drive for a touchdown?!?!? Not very exciting? What do you want dancing poodles on the sidelines? :)

{CB1}Lukeyman August 10 2006 1:04 PM EDT

I think I need to pull out of this Mem :(

I won't be able to get the 2 mill to enter, sorry.

Mem August 10 2006 2:11 PM EDT

You can borrow the money from me, Lukey. Of course, I will expect you to pay it back eventually, but you'll have quite a grace period. Like, say, a year.

{CB1}Lukeyman August 15 2006 8:19 PM EDT

wow, ok Memmypoo, thank you!

stevebat August 16 2006 2:43 PM EDT

question: what is fantasy football!!!

deifeln August 16 2006 3:11 PM EDT


An interrogative sentence requires a question mark.


I finally see August 16 2006 3:18 PM EDT


House August 21 2006 9:36 AM EDT

league full ..with 8 players or 12 players???

Mem August 21 2006 5:26 PM EDT

The league is currently full at 10 people.

Just a reminder that the draft is this coming Sunday. More details to come...

Mem August 23 2006 11:06 AM EDT

***Ok. Everyone pay attention. This is important!!!***

The draft will be this Sunday beginning at 11 AM EDT in CB chat room "CB Fantasy Draft". I was unable to get us a time on Sunday using Yahoo because it was completely booked, so we're just using CB chat. If any of you are unable to make it let me know and email me a list of players you would draft in order. I will then pick the highest player on that list for your roster. And of course, I'll make sure you have at least enough players to fulfill your starting roster requirements. Be careful how you fill your sheet out though, because you only get 10 transactions the entire season. Please send those lists to me in an email at msalyers2@gmail.com.

If anyone has any questions or concerns please post here or CM me. Good luck!

P.S. The onus is on you to make it to the draft or arrange with me otherwise. If you aren't present then you'll have your team picked for you... and you might not like that.

{CB1}Lukeyman August 23 2006 1:23 PM EDT

11 am EDT?
whats that in ATL?
