Liberty B@llers FFL!

Well, since the NBA and the Sixers are on the shelf with the L*CK*UT, we might as well amuse ourselves in some other fashion. Last years, Fantasy Football league was pretty fun. I can't remember off the top of my head who won (AKA I didn't win and being the poor sport that I am, decided to just ignore the rest of of the playoffs after I got knocked out), but I'd like to have a go at it again. I was thinking of starting up another league and expanding the amount of teams participating in order to involve more of the LB community. For the former league, whoever is the league commish there, we could start up that league again as well!

[Note: League information is listed at the bottom]

[Update 1: As of 3:45PM, 8/15, the league is set to 16 teams. This can easily be extended to more if people want to make it even more competitive. Please make suggestions if you have any.]

[Update 2: As of 11:36PM, 8/31, We have, as of now, 14 teams. Draft is set for tonight at 10:30PM. I could not get it to 9 as Yahoo wouldn't let me. I can postpone if necessary! Let me know!]


 

Some general guidelines and other information.

1. While I want this league to be generally competitive, I want it to be casual as well. It's a "free" league in the sense that there is no monetary entry fee or reward. HOWEVER, I don't want anyone channeling their inner BUST when they participate. It's going to be head to head match-ups every week, so get your game face ready when you go up against a fellow member! Trash talking is encouraged :).

2.  The amount of teams for the league will be decided by the amount of people who want to participate. We need a minimum of at least 10. I generally don't like going over 16 teams, but I have played in leagues with 20 teams and have found it very fun (requires some good football knowledge as far as players and matchups). I'm up for suggestions as to what you all think is an appropriate number

3. The point system will be also figured out once I get an idea of how many people/teams are up for joining the league. While it will most likely be standard scoring, I'll skew some numbers to make it fair for certain positions if we have a lot of teams. It will be a PPR league (probably .5 pts per reception). And QB TDs will be worth 4pts, while others are worth 6pts. This is all up for discussion as well, so give me your input.

4. One thing I've really loved about this blog is the humor. The writers here know how to have fun with what they write. It's one of the many things that's kept me coming back here. With the amount of awesome awards given out here (like the DONGS!), I think we should incorporate something of the sort just to keep members/teams involved even if they're season isn't going too well. I mean it's hard enough without basketball.

 In addition, I encourage that team names should be either related to this blog (memes, etc), or the 76ers. If you can't think of a good one, it's no problem, just make sure we'll be able to tell who you are based on you SBNation handle.

Ex.  HatersGonnaSpeights or ThadYoungForever/ThadYoungMoney (off the top of my head).

5. I'm thinking Live draft sometime. We can all decide on the date.

6. If 1 league gets filled, we can always make more. So don't be discouraged.

 

This is a working post/thread so check back in for updates, corrections, and edits. I hope everyone will be on board with this. Again, write in suggestions and such below.
