I'm in 2 leagues but I'm willing to do a 3rd. I'm already in a Yahoo and NFL.com league and I would interested in trying ESPN's FF league. Of course, it doesn't matter which site we use.....I'll win it all no matter which site we pick.

I am in an ESPN league and I'm not impressed. Yeah teh FFB is free, but any research on players or watching scores or anythign like that you need to pay for. Yahoo just seems way more user friendly to me. I knew you'd get in.

Bird, I love the homebrew proposal. Can't wait to get my homebrew from all of you guys.

Really? That's disappointing.... I figured ESPN would have done better than that. I'm cool with Yahoo.

Whaddya mean? I think we should just do a simple, no frills league. Keep it simple for those that haven't played it.

I DO think however, that we need to do a live draft. It is very simple on yahoo. And if you can't be there for it, the computer will pick your players automatically. It does a fair job. I'd recommend ranking at least 50-75 players though.

Yahoo just did an auto-draft for me this morning. Yuck. Roy Williams was my 4th round pick. We should definitely do a live draft.

Live draft is definately in order. Does Yahoo have a chat function so we can talk smack as the picks are made?

I'd really like to play, but getting a live draft set up to when everyone can attend would be damn near impossible, IMHO.
