    I sent out invites to everyone that played last year. If anyone is interested in playing please post here or pm me and I can fit you in where we dont have returning teams or if enough interest maybe start a 2nd league.

    I did make some scoring changes, each TD thrown by a QB is now worth 6 compared to last years 4 pts.

    Every running back and wide receiver that has more than 100 yds rushing or receviving gets a 5 pt bonus, and the QB throws for over 300 yds another 5 pt bonus.

    I'll bet that this thread gets invaded by Mr. Know it all with all of his ideas on how this league should be run

    dont think you need to worry about Klein... he only plays the Canadian Football fantasy league. It's obvious that it is most superior to the NFL anyway

    There are some aspects of the CFL that I would love to see incorporated in to the NFL. The 110 yard field and having two men in motion at the same time make for a wide open offensive game. They also have some cool team names--Montreal Allouettes, Toronto Argonauts and Klein's very own Edmonton Eskimos.

    Actually, I have not much of a clue about football in total.
    Have no clue how those points work.
    I did it last year a little, just mostly random picking players on my budweiser NFL facebook league. I did get a few points, but how that really worked, still no clue ! LOL

    Anyways, if Budweiser does it again this year (there are real prices to be won weekly, money, jerseys, etc), also ofcourse a trip to the superbowl with the best tiks in the house, then I'll be looking for 1 of you to play it for me, (all prices will be shared, if you become a weekly or end winner).

    PS: Upstate, we only have 3 downs, too.
    Edmonton is hosting the Greycup (our superbowl), this year, too.
    They will have huge parties, and even free zip-lining downtown, like in Vancouver during the Olympics.

    I have set up the draft for Sunday August 29th at 10pm Eastern time, if this is not good please speak up sooner than later. I really would like to have everyone here for teh draft, so if Saturday night later would work we can also do that.

    There are plenty of time slots open still, but the longer we wait the fewer we can choose from.

    Also we have 1 more member that would like to join, if we get an additional member we can do a 12 team league, makes it a little more challenging, but it is just for fun. RIGHT?????

    I'm not sure if Feathers is playing but she took over for Cheryl last year. Cheryl will not be playing.

    When is that DRAFT?

    What website?

    Do I need to join the site before a draft?

    Does this cost anything?

    Do you have any links for us to check this out?

    How many players do you draft?

    How many teams are in the league?

    What if I never played fantasy it hard to learn?
    Can someone help me learn?

    I will wait for your response. AJ

    Hey Red I'm looking all over to run the draft software? I did this last year do I need to do it again, if so where do I find it?

    Also not everyone has checked in, got this email today..

    Dear Fantasy Football Team Owner,
    This is a reminder that your Browncafe Snake Draft is scheduled for August 29 at 10:00 PM ET, but your league is not yet full.
    League Name: Browncafe
    Be aware that if all team owners don't join at least one hour before the scheduled time, your draft will not be held and you will have to reschedule for another time.
    Best of luck with your your team this season!

    Tony, I deleted the 2 teams that had not signed in yet so we would not have any problems like last year. If you have the same computer your fine, if not just follow the steps on ESPN, pretty simple.
