    If Rob has lost a little of the desire to run a league - and who could blame him - I will run it.
    If you want to play in a league, let me know, and I will set up a league with X number of teams in it, could be 8, 10, 12.
    If interested, we will probably have the draft the Sunday night before the season starts, whenever that is. IF it is.

    I'll tell you folks what: Yahoo really f*cked up a good thing.
    I go to sign up for a different public league, they ask you what date and time you
    want to draft, and they slam you in whatever league of their choice.
    You don't get a choice, you don't get to see who else is playing, how they calculate points, who they determine
    who is in the playoffs, nothing.

    SO, with that said, I am going to go open up a FC Private league, and post back here the details, IF I have a choice,
    and if it sucks, I will simply drop it, cuz I'm not gonna do it if it's not fun for ALL of us.

    Why do people think they are making things 'better'?

    I will also go see what NFL.COM does, even though I am not enamored with the NFL Admin itself and how
    they are 'handling things', I want to see what they are doing. If I do this, you will need a free nfl.com signin.

    UGH....

    Ok, even though I am not enamored about how the league is reacting to things, I
    decided to start a fantasy team on NFL.COM

    10 teams, 2 divisions, 6 teams make the playoffs.
    1 PPR (no choice but to do that - I never really liked PPR)
    Each draft pick is 60 seconds, not 90 (snoozefest)
    Playoffs on wks 14-15-16.
    Fractional points used - should eliminate ties. If there IS a tie, it will be decided by bench player points.
    Standard scoring, but I added a 50+ yard passing TD gets an extra 1 point.

    MAIN scoop:
    8 bench players, not 6.
    Starting:
    QB, RB(2), WR(2), TE(1), and a WR/RB/TE (instead of a 3rd WR), K and DST.

    DRAFT is Sunday Aug 30 10pm EDT, 9pm CST

    To join the league, go to the NFL Fantasy site,
    https://fantasy.nfl.com/?icampaign=fty-nav-hp

    When prompted, enter the League ID# and password below.

    League ID#: 8709957
    Password: dinoferrari

    If folks join, great, if not, I will simply open it up to the public a week ahead of Aug 30.

    It appears there is zero interest here, so I am going to try and open up this league to the public.

    I’d be interested in making one of the FC leagues paid. Just something nominal to make it a little more interesting. Agree/disagree?

    Go for it, but that's not my cup of tea.

    SO far there are only two teams in the league I started above, so that league will just fade into
    oblivion because you have to have at least 6 teams to have a league, and I'm not about to
    beg anyone to enter. Folks have until the draft on Aug 31 to enter, I'm in other leagues so I
    don't care, I just thought folks here wanted to play...

    Thanks for your efforts Whisky. I have limited bandwidth to allocate to fantasy football this year.. That, combined with my ambivalence toward the NFL these days has me bowing out. Perhaps next year. Again, thanks for trying.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I don't really care and I'm not paying any attention at all to the league I
    started here, nobody has an interest, and I joined other leagues, so I'm set.
    Bad attitude? Maybe, but last year we had two full leagues, this year we cannot
    get anyone to join even one, so....

    Sorry man, I've had a rough month both physically and mentally, and completely forgot about this. The NFL just really hasn't been on my radar much this year.

    @Whisky I just now realized the FC leagues weren't happening this year. I have had a team in both. It feels weird that NFL starts today and I have very little interest in it.

    No worries, I am in four other leagues, the FC one I started I just simply disbanded and deleted a week ago,
    it needed at least six members and it was pretty apparent nobody was going to join, so I figured f*ck it.
