It's that time of year again. It's time for the BGO Fantasy Football League. We've all seen your posts. We've read your ideas on how to build a successful football team. Now it's time to put your ideas into action. It's time to see who is the best fake football GM on this board. The contest is free and it's open to everyone. The more the merrier! In the past, we've had up to 3 leagues to accommodate everyone. So depending on how many people we get, we will divide up into leagues of 10 or 12 players.

We will use yahoo as we have in the past and use the same scoring and roster rules as before:

1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 DST, 1 K

We want you to play. Whether you are a novice or an expert. Whether it's your 1st year or your 10th. We want you to play in this league. And as a special treat, Boone has said there will be prizes this year!

To summarize:
  • You get to put your football team building ideas into action
  • You won't lose your job if you mess up like most real GMs (One seemingly can't ever lose their job)
  • You get to have camaraderie with the other members on this board
  • You get to have lots of fun
  • You will get a prize if you win
  • It costs you nothing but a few minutes each week


You do not want to miss out this year, so sign up today. All you need to do is reply in this thread that you want to play and I will setup the leagues and invite the players. Once we have the leagues set, we will work on setting the draft date to try and accommodate as many as we can.

If you received an invite through Yahoo, don't worry about it right now. I renewed the league and it invited back all the players from last year. Don't misunderstand, we want you back. But we will get the signup here on the board and then figure out the leagues and do a formal invite and league setup.

Yes, I'll have eggs over easy, sausage patties, hash browns, biscuits, coffee, and orange juice.

And I'll need some hot sauce, please.

The basement gets quite lonely. I'd be happy to keep it company this fantasy season. - CH

Yes, I would love to join this league. The only issue is I'm on vacation the last week of August, so may have to do the dreaded 'auto-draft' if that's OK.

We usually do everything possible to find a draft date/time that works for everyone

Did not see my name on the participant list, so Canadians are either not allowed in the league, or I was accidentally omitted. I would love to play again if space permits. CH

I didn't see where your passport was in order.

I added you to the list. I clearly just missed it. But you are on the list now.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up so far. If you have not signed up, there is still time. Don't way too long though as at some point we will have to get the leagues setup. We will have as many leagues as needed to allow all interested members to play. All you need to do is post in this thread if you are interested in playing.
