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. Posted Image
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.
Never heard of this. I'm a honky.

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.

Edit: updated to reflect follow-up posts

Doing some detective work on the old threads, here are last year's leagues (bold have already responded in this thread)

HTF League I:
River City Bungles (Joel Mack)
Tropical Robots (Mark Pfeiffer)
Jackson Rednecks (John Spencer)
Springfield Isotopes (John Thomas)
AutoBahn (Brian Alexander)
Tulsa machineXsoul (Kelley B)
Calgary Hitmen (Paul McGowan)
Chicago Carnage (Jerry Almeida)
HellToupee (Stephen L)
Irving Claymores (BrianB)
Indy Jedi Knights (Seth Paxton)
SB Bound (BryanZ)

HTF League II:
Kroft Superstars (Alex-C)
Instant Replay Hoods (Brad Porter)
Shawshank Redemptors (Danny R)
Keyzer Soze Slayers (John Dhein)
Mordor Ringwraiths (Dean DeMass)
JDL Squad (Justin Lane)
Mother Punchers (Ross Williams)
Frontal LeBeautomy (David Lawson)
Brett's Squad (Brett Hancock)
Brandon_T
Chris
Doug R (<- if you want in this league)

Alternates or additional teams:
Andrew_Sch
Mark Dubbelboer

I imagine that Seth and Joel will respond eventually since they participated so heavily in the league in the past. I don't know about participation level of the other four guys in league I.

I know that league II has at least two openings because two teams didn't show up to the draft and then left their teams on autopilot all season. There are still five of the active participants who haven't responded in this thread.

I like 12 team leagues split into three divisions. The three division winners and one wild card team get into the two week playoffs in NFL weeks 15 and 16. Unless we get several more interested participants, keeping both leagues to 12 teams is probably the way to go. If there's more than 24 players, then I suppose that League II would be more welcoming of extra teams since it's only in it's second year and has no real tradition.

HTF League II started the following roster last year:

1 QB
2 RB
3 WR
1 TE
1 K
1 D/ST

I'll see if I can reconstruct the scoring system in a follow-up post.

Here's the obvious questions:
1. Do we want to preserve the existing leagues, or do we mix up the teams based upon who has already responded?
2. Should I reserve a Yahoo league and draft time for HTF League II (Dennis Reno did this last year)? If so, does anyone have a preference for date/time?
