CB Fantasy Football (in Off-topic)

[RX3]Cotillion August 15 2010 7:25 PM EDT

Is there any community interest in a Fantasy football league this year? Last year fell through but I thought I'd try and ask again.

If there is any interest, we would need at the least about 10 players right? Also open to suggestion for which service to use.

I would personally put up at least $5m CBD for the final pot. Two years ago PeterGriffin also held a Weekly Football line where players would enter for a fee and the person with the most picks would win the pot. A portion of the final pot was also donated into the Fantasy Football pot.

I'd be game.

Just one taker?...

Also, if this does happen, we need to think about entrance fees. It should be at least $1m. If we have 10 players and I put up an initial $5m that would be a total of $15m not to mention the extra cash from the weekly lines. 1st place could get 75% (which is over $11m) and 2nd place 25%. That's a pretty substantial pot for a few minutes every week.

I know more than 10 of you guys play fantasy football. I just KNOW it. Like last year, if a entrance fee is too much for you to afford right now, you can pay it over time. After all, there is still 3 weeks of preseason plus an additional 17 weeks. 5 months to raise a petty entrance fee.

I'd join the weekly football line for sure, but I've only watched football once or twice, so I don't think I'd enjoy tournament play.

going to keep bumping this. There has to be atleast 8 more people out there who want to play.

So is that 4? Anyone have suggestions on what service to use?

{cb1}dyno August 21 2010 8:59 PM EDT

yahoo's always worked for me :)

Someone also mentioned a suicide pool. Would there be any interest in that?

I'm also trying to find some services which make picking lines and such easier. If anyone knows free services, throw em my way if you would.

We're already to the third week of pre season. I know some of you guys want to play!

I would be in for anything except survivor/suicide pool.

[RX3]Cotillion August 28 2010 7:16 PM EDT

just to clarify, the weekly picks and suicide pools are completely separate from the fantasy football league. You would not in any shape or form be required to enter or participate in them.

To the top.

[RX3]Cotillion September 7 2010 11:38 AM EDT

Guess this is going to fall through again...

One last push for a late start.
