Thumbs up

It's that time again...fantasy football is back!

After some discussion in last years thread, we've decided to move the league to NFL.com this year. They also have a free Android app, and have integrated Google+ hangouts for trash talking and victory bragging.

I'll do my best to keep this post updated as people join and we work out the details for the league.

As of now, it's set for 12 teams, so let's try to fill it up!

I've set the live draft for Sunday August 19th, at 2pm EST but we can pick a time that works for the max number of teams once we fill the 12 spots.

So far, this is the lineup of managers (based on interest in the previous thread - I'll update as more join):

1. the_Gnome_ - The Gnomes
2. NYCHitman1 - New York Slaughterhouse
3. NightAngel79 - Cincinnati Nightlies
4. rabiddawgs - Maybe Next Year
5. chrlswltrs - Charlie's Cowboys
6. TheGoatLantern - Blue Mt. State
7. agentc13 - Bumping Daleks
8. gbiggie - StafFord Field
9. dots - Hurricane Dots
10. Trent Reznor - Never Summer Cobras
11. imnotmikal - Silly Nannies
12. sntaylor - Scottish Beagles

Now, for the important details. To sign up, drop me a PM! Those of you who have already expressed an interest in playing will already have a PM coming from me with the login info. If anyone hasn't got it, let me know!

Sign up while there's spots! Let us know in here when you do, and let the trash talking commence!

Thumbs up NFL.com Fantasy Football 2012-2013

Title says it all folks!

We are looking for people who will be active participants in a very rigorous, yet comical (because NA can't win worth squat lol) season.

WHO'S READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!?

I'm in. NFL.com app looks kind of crappy in my initial look, but hopefully it's not that bad in practice.

What are the default league settings?

Can we start to throw out some draft dates? Right now, I know I can't draft on August 22, 23 24 or 25.

Thanks for taking charge!

Just a piece of advice though... I would recommend editing the OP, removing the log in info, and PM it to the 12 that are playing.

Just noticed a sweet feature on our league homepage - you can create your own top stories for the main page with images!

If anyone gets spanked during the season, we'll be sure to highlight it, complete with avatar to fill out the embarrassment.

Yeah there seems to be a lot of cool features with NFL.com.

Unfortunately I can't sign in using the app, it is completely unresponsive once it opens. I used the dev email on Google Play for support so hopefully they work out that bug soon

Okay, I am set up. Once we have a few dates picked for a draft, I can tell you what works best for me.

The NFL.com app really sucks. It's like a browser not really a native app. Can't seem to even log into this league.

Just a heads up that I won't be able to draft August 22 through August 25.

Yea, the comments on app sounds like it blows. Hope it ain't that bad, I really count on messing with lineup from app.

Missing yahoo app already

I'm hoping they improve the app before the season kicks off.

Either way let's make this a fun year of football and smack talkin'.

Since I don't know everyone's first (real) names, reply in here with your team name and I'll update the OP with them.

Draft date suggestions? We'll avoid the 22-25th. What's everyone's preference on time of day and/or day of week?

Yeah, I really hope it does too.

I'm not even going to give my input on draft time because my schedule is so random. Any shift, and on call 24/7. Once we get it set I can request the time off if I have 2 weeks notice though, otherwise I'll just make it work as best I can.

I'm Legion of Doom.

As for the draft, a weeknight after 10et should be perfect, but as long as we avoid those days I posted earlier, hopefully I'll be ok.

When does the actual season begin? I'd rather draft closer to then to prevent any drafting of IR players.

And blasphemy for my thread being hijacked lol

The season kicks off Sept 5th, so late August is probably best for the draft.

And big apologies for the duplicate thread - I honestly didn't even look if one was started since I was registering the league!

Default settings generally look fine to me.

Anyone else tried out the app? I'm really not sure we'll be able to do anything in the app, if they don't significantly update it.

Considering we all have Android phones, a decent app should be a pretty high priority. If you all feel the same about the app, we could reconsider yahoo.

We also need to recruit a few more teams. I'd really like it if everyone made a decent effort to win their games. It's no fun to have a bye week against a player or doesn't even remove players on byes from their starting lineup.

To be fair, you can't do anything in the Yahoo app until your leage drafts either, if I remember correctly. We sort of decided on NFL.com as we'd be losing someone from last year if we went back to Yahoo.

I say lets get through the draft, see how the app is, and if it's so bad we can't take it, I can spin up a yahoo league and assign us the same rosters we draft through NFL.com.

I think the problem right now is most of us can't even sign in to our account on the nfl app. I'm still good with the nfl league as I hope they get the bugs in the app worked out before the season starts.

I have been in contact with the mobile development team for the NFL.com fantasy app. It seems that the problems might be device specific. They are aware of the issue and working on it now. They also have the link to this thread if they choose to come here for feedback.

I'm all signed up now. Draft time (that entire week) likely won't work for me but regardless I'll setup my pre draft rankings just in case.

I'm hoping they improve the app before the season kicks off.

Either way let's make this a fun year of football and smack talkin'.

Since I don't know everyone's first (real) names, reply in here with your team name and I'll update the OP with them.

Draft date suggestions? We'll avoid the 22-25th. What's everyone's preference on time of day and/or day of week?

You should-if you enjoy the NFL it makes the games even more enjoyable to watch. So many factors too(weather, injuries, ect.)
You would think the big names would guarantee a win but not also the case. Look at Tom Brady going down with an injury early before.

Would you guys have a problem with a complete noob joining? I've wanted to do FF for a while, but never had a chance to do it.

Best sleeper I ever picked up was Mike Vick for the Eagles. When he came in due to an injury I picked him up, then he became the starter and he single handedly won some games for me! In fact that was in this league and the reason I made the playoffs 2 years ago

Well I'm happy to join if pointed in the right direction, if imnotmikal is a noob, then consider me still in the womb, living in Scotland, I do have espn, but Monday night football stats at 1 and 2 am over here! Lol.

Def would like to play though, if there is space :-)

If you are going to spend at least a few minutes each week to set up your roster for the coming week, no problem here.

All I really ask for is that people keep an eye on their roster, pick up replacements for injured players and have a lineup each week with all players who are actually playing that week.

As lexluthor said, as long as people are willing to put in the effort to make sure they set a competitive roster each week, then we'd be glad to have you!

It's addictive once you join - you'll be scouring the news reports on ESPN for who's hot this week and who's hurt.

I'll send you a PM with the info!

FYI - imnotmikal and trentreznor also IMd me about joining, so with the returning players who wanted back in, this should bring us up to 12.

I'm glad to see an add on tv for google plus hangouts with nfl.com fantasy. I really hope I'm not working during the draft, I would love to do a hangout during the draft!

I just hope the app gets better. I rarely ever touch my computer. I use my phone and iPad for everything. The android app is unusable right now and there is no iPad app... Don't worry, if I have to I'll open a laptop weekly though. I'm winning it all this year!!

I honestly have no idea. Are you able to go back and check? I don't have a Yahoo acct anymore, so I can't check for myself.

Anyone (it'd really have to be everyone that agreed) interested in adding some low stakes to the league?

Even $5-$10 per person with winner takes all would add some incentive and a little reward at the end. I'm good with any amount the group agrees on.
