    Howdy folks! It's football time in Tennessee..and everywhere else I suppose.

    Here's to stirring up some interest in another year of fantasy football. I'd like to see if last year's owners were interested in continuing what we started. I'm not 100% clear on all the rules so I was hopingthat some of last year's folks could come in and refresh my memory.

    Joel Mack was the commish and he said that we were going to do keepers after the Super Bowl but that never happened to my knowledge. People I remember being in last year;s league:

    Me
    Joel Mack
    Seth Paxton
    John Spencer
    Paul Mcgowan
    Stephen (L?)
    Jerry Almedia
    Mark Pfiffer
    Kelley ?
    Brian B

    I can't ecall everyone, maybe I should do a search. [​IMG]
    Anyhow, I'm throwing this out there to gauge interest.

    I've got a few times already reserved on Yahoo's site just in case that turns out to be an issue.

    Ah! Someone shows interest!

    Here's the times that I have reserved for a league:

    Aug 21, 8:35 pm CDT Thursday
    Aug 29, 5:55 pm CDT Friday

    I may be out of town on the 29th so I'm probably leaning towards the 21st. It also seems like a safer bet since it's not on a weekend and everyone will be around at that time.

    At any rate, I'm up for further suggestions especially concerning scoring and such. For now, I've got the default settings for a Yahoo league in place.

    I would like to play this year if there is a spot open. One of my other leagues folded and am looking for a second league. Let me know.

    I dominated* the HTF FFL II league last year, so I'm definitely ready to repeat my winning ways. We didn't plan for reforming or using keepers in the second league last year, so we may be more open for new members than the first league. Here is the list of last year's team owners that I can find

    Alex-C
    Brad Porter
    Danny R
    John Dhein
    Dennis Reno
    Dean DeMass
    Justin Lane
    Ross Williams

    +4 others who I can't recall because the old website is gone and the HTF thread was chopped down to size.

    Brad

    *"dominated" = I had Clinton Portis at the end of the season and my opponent was suddenly without Priest Holmes.

    This year I will not be picking Kurt Warner in the first round. I had the second overall pick and he got hurt, what in the 2nd game. Anyway, it plagued me all season.

    I will be out for revenge...mwhooohahahaha.

    I was in the Joel Mack commissioner league that John mentioned and I'm interested in playing. If the keeper thing goes out the window, I don't mind.

    Of course I was in Joel Mack's keeper league last year. Will play again. 4th straight year I've been involved. Although I think I had Faulk and McAllister, I wouldn't put up a fight if the keepers were trashed.

    I would be very glad if the keepers were trashed. And I had Pennington and Gonzales.

    It looks like the keeper idea wasn't a good one. the 4-year-multiple-keeper thing was way too much. Besdies it was tacked on after the draft i think. At any rate, it wasn't ironed out with everyone so it probably will fall to the wayside.

    And just for kicks, I had Owens and a few others that would've made excellent keepers too; Porter and Shipp weren't picked in the draft so they would've only taken up my last 2 draft slots.

    I guess what we need to do now is get an idea of what type of league everyone would enjoy. How many owners? We had 12 last year and the talent pool was just about right. If it went to 16, it would be too thin, especially at RB. It was pretty bad last year with 12 owners..

    I think you should give them the league password and # John.

    I really did like the WR/RB option we had.

    and IMO 14 would be just perfect for football, top 8 to playoffs. head to head. team defense, standard scoring. 6 points for a td, 1 point for 20? yards rushing/receiving, 1 point for 50 yards passing. 6 points for TD scored, no matter who gets it. Same D scoring as last year, whatever it was...

    I decided to use that Thursday slot for another league. Now, there's an opening on Sunday August 10th. I'm wondering why some of last year's players haven't chimed in yet.
