    unexpected things happen the first week.  Not to say that the Panthers aren’t good.  Indy lost too.  I think the teams are still a bit rusty because they won’t play their starters in the pre-season.  By the way, I have two good QBs and several RBs I’m willing to trade for some WRs.

    Enjoyed the chat during the draft.  Those who are playing for the first time did a nice job with your draft.  If you have questions or need help, just send me an email.  "Even crazy people sometimes base their fiction on an ounce of truth" -S. Sigler

    NEED MORE PLAYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Avatar of Tom Merritt

     Get verified then PM me… Draft is listed above…

    Avatar of Shirley Bruce

    Really, you don’t have to know anything about football to play.  All you have to do is set your team each week and Yahoo even has advice for you on who to play each week.  You can always ask me if you have questions.  I promise I’ll tell you the truth.  My downfall is that I play fair and have been known to turn down trades that are offered to me if I think them to be unfairly to my advantage.  You’ll enjoy it!!!!!

    Wow Great Turn out already!  Keep them coming folks!

    To clarify, this is NFL Fantasy football, but we are naming ourselves after teh rookie universe.

    If you don’t NFL, no worries you can begin to learn.  Got to jump in at some point right?!

    Hi All from Jolly Old England!  (this is gonna be a LONG LONG post)

    So it’s happened, I enjoy soccer,but it is not football. REAL AMERICAN FOOTBALL!

    I got the twitch again and decided to make a Fantasy football league this year for all "The Rookie" fans like myself.  Now I talked to the FDO and he has approved of this league… thus I bring it to the masses.

    A quick explination…Fantasy football is a game of selecting players in the NFL and collecting points on certain skills events they perform on the field.  Those points are added up and compared against one other player.  The one with the most points wins for that week.  After 13 weeks the top 8 players go into play offs until a single player wins it all.  For much better detail visit this ESPN page:

    http://games-ak.espn.go.com/s/ff101/ff101.htm

    (even good for us old fogies)

    As our FDO is too busy preparing his next manifest for our groveling junkie needs, I will be the commish for this league.

    This will be open to ALL OJ’s, and even the new junkies.  But it will be limted to 12 people to keep it fun.  Being that I’m 1 this leaves 11 more spots.   

    So how do you join this league? Here are the rules to join.

    1. You must have listened to The Rookie.  As the league will be about American football,  the basics of the game can be learned by this great book.  Yes there are finer details that help play the game, but you can learn as you go.  Plus plenty of websites out there.

    2. The Fantasy League is call "The Galactic Football League", Thus all team names will be from the Rookie GFL teir 2 league that the Ionath Krakens were part of, plus the 2 playoff teams, The Texas Earthlings & The Chillith SpiderBears.  You must choose one of these team names!… Except Chillith Spiderbears as I chose this already.  You can also get their logos here:  http://www.galacticfootballleague.com/logos.cfm

    3.  You must post here first , with your first name & your team name so people can see how many have joined.

    4.  You then must private message me.  In that private message, include your name, your team name, and most importantly your email!  To private message me, click on my username and then you can choose to send a private message.  I do this to prevent spambots from seeing your email.  And I have to send you the invite to play at yahoo.  (if you don’t have a yahoo account already, you can sign up for one, as they are free).

    You DO NOT Have to have previous experience in fantasy football to play.  Everyone will be kind, but expect trash talking as we junkies like to do.

    If this is popular enough we can start a 2nd league too. 

    For those who already understrand fantasy football and want to know, this will be a basic league with high points!  

    There will be a live draft on Sunday August 31st at

    4:15pm EST

    1:15pm PST

    9:15pm BST (That’s my time zone)

    here’s the basic breakdown:

    1 qb

    2 rb

    2 wr

    1 te

    1 w/t

    1 w/r

    1 k

    1 team def

    8 bench

    Finer details can be found once you join to play!  And yes all rules and points are up for discussion, but must be set before Kickoff on Thursday Sept 4th.

    Hope to see many of you soon!

    Peace

    Tom
