    2013 .ORG Fantasy Football

    Well, it is that time of year again and time to get the .ORG Fantasy Football league started. hbk1313 normally runs the league, but I just looked and he has not logged into He-man.org in almost 1 year (since last August 2012).

    I already run 2 of my own leagues (just like I have for the past 10 years), so I have no desire to be commissioner of a 3rd league. However, vaderSW1 has mentioned that he would be willing to create and run a league.

    I personally like NFL.com Fantasy Football better than Yahoo, but that is just my personal preference.

    So, what are your thoughts, preferences, etc.?

    I'm down with NFL.com as well. I like its setup the best and it allows for full league customization. I was thinking, if I take over as commissioner, that I would adjust the scoring system to where we have much higher scoring games. I was thinking of things like allowing 2 points per reception and such. I think it will be fun.

    Alright vaderSW1, my opinion is that you go ahead and setup a private league and let us know the details so we can join.

    I'll do that tonight when I get home from work and visiting my Grandfather in the hospital. Once it has been set up, I will post here and provide the link. I won't post the password here though. Instead I will PM it to those that wish to play.

    Ideally we need to have at least 10 teams, 12 at the most.

    Thank you very much. He's been battling blood cancer and failing kidneys for several years. The blood cancer is really starting to get advanced. Hopefully the doctors can find an effective treatment plan.

    Okay, folks the He-Man.Org league has been created on NFL.com. Here is the link:

    http://theorg.league.fantasy.nfl.com

    For those that have already stated they wanted to play, please check your PM box for the league password.

    We have 6 teams so far. We need at least 4 more but I will take up to 6 more. Here are the teams so far:

    Dual_Hares
    midor
    mikethedrummer
    MOTU_Maniac
    Tundra_Torque
    vaderSW1

    Everyone please take a look at the way I set up the scoring system. We will do a online draft. I currently have the draft date set for 08/31/13, which is the last Saturday before the start of the season. However, this is absolutely not set in stone, we can certainly come to a consensus on another date if this does not work. I just like to have the draft as close to the start of the season as possible so that we know who is injured coming out of training camps/preseason.

    Can your perhaps update the thread title to show how many open slots we still have? Something like "4 Slots Still Open!" Hopefully that will draw some attention to the availability.

    I tried, but it doesn't actually allow me to change the title of the thread. I will contact a mod to see if they can change it.

    Thanks for reaching out to the Mods to make the update.

    The injury bug has already bitten hard. Jeremy Maclin and Dennis Pitta are out for the year. It appears that Percy Harvin is also heading for being out for the year as well.

    Yep, I have added them all to my "Excluded Players" list in all 3 of my FF leagues Pre-Draft rankings.

    Even if we only end up with six teams, I can make it work. It will be really ultra competitive. The strategy will be all in how well you pick which players to start. I've done it before. It's different because everyone's rosters are loaded but it's also fun.

    hosab, I will PM you the league link and password momentarily.

    Also, you are correct about too few Hoosiers on these boards! I live about 25 minutes south of Indianapolis, near Greenwood.

    Yeah I'm a Colts fan first and foremost. However, I consider myself more of just a football fanatic than anything else. I have jerseys from several teams and I probably have at least one player I enjoy watching from every team. Football season is heaven for me.

    Are you only counting the ones that have actually registered on NFL.com? If so, we actually have one more. Dual hares hasn't yet signed up.

    Yes, I have actually only been counting ones that have signed up because you "don't count your chickens before they are hatched". lol.

    Just talked to Jeremy (Dual-Hares) and he is having some computer problems, but hopes to sign up this weekend.
