    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!

    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.

    Ack sorry NYCHitman1 - didn't notice you started this thread - I just posted a separate one with all the details for the NFL.com league!

    Reserving post 2 for playoff info (when I'm on my way to being champion that is).

    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

    Are these 2 threads for the same league? Can someone clean this up?

    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 :(

    Just let me know if this is for the same league and I will merge the threads, or is this for a second league?
  14. The_Gnome_

    The_Gnome_ Well-Known Member

    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?

    I can do pretty much any day after 4EST. Earlier than that be hit or miss.
  16. chrlswltrs

    chrlswltrs Well-Known Member

    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
  20. NYCHitman1

    Merge. I created a thread first, but Gnome didn't see it. All gravy. Merge/delete away!
  21. The_Gnome_

    The_Gnome_ Well-Known Member

    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!
  22. NYCHitman1

    NYCHitman1 Gun for Hire Developer

    I don't really care lol. I was just aiming to bust your chops a bit.

    By the way, my team's name is New York Slaughterhouse

    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!? :smokingsomb:

    I've modified the thread for Gnome's post to be on top, seeing how he has the rules and such listed. Sorry for any confusion.

    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.
