Welcome to another exciting year of fantasy football!



For those just looking, the league is now full (last spot belongs to Walker), but there is a noob league with some open spots.

Bookmark this page:

Also, change your "manager name" to your HBT nickname so we know who you are. You can do this by clicking on the "My Team" Tab and clicking on your current Manager name. It's right next to your helmet and the name of your team.

The Bet

By joining the league, you are agreeing to a small wager of beer. The beer can either be home brew or a good local micro. The payoffs are as follows:
  1. Overall winner - 3 beers (12 oz bottle) from ALL players in the league
  2. The three remaining PLAYOFF teams get 1 beer from ALL players in the league

This means EVERYONE will be sending out some beer - win or lose!

People that don't pay their debts won't be invited back next year and will generally be thought of as dicks (Except for Lorana, who will be thought of as a... I'm not going to say it, but you know what I mean)


Courteous play and sportsmanship is frowned upon. Trash talk and rubbing players noses in losses is not just accepted; it's encouraged!!

Here are the current settings. The draft date, scoring and player types are negotiable to a point. If something isn't to the liking of the league as a whole, we'll adjust!

Have fun!

Just a thought here, but what about adding to the bet so that people near the bottom at the end have something to play for. Something like last place owes double or has to post a pic of themselves in a thong... Something fun

Anyone have any creative ideas?

Oh, sh!t I just saw that I'm going to be out of town on draft day. Am I screwed??? Is there any way we can make it in the evening on that day? I should be back and ready to draft by 7:00 Central....Or maybe pick different day? I'm sorry guys, I just now saw this.

We can move it to the day that's best for all. To be fair, since you have a conflict, why don't you propose a date. If there are no objections, we'll go with that. If there are conflicts with all proposed dates, we'll go with the last agreed upon date and those with conflicts will just have to update their autodraft roster.

Well now that I more closely scrutinized our calendar I see that I am gone every weekend in August except the weekend of the 24th. Otherwise, any weekday evening should be fine with me.

What about later the day we already have? I know that August is crazy busy for most of us- and my son has football games starting the week of August 23. If Bernie is home later in the evening that day, would that be ok? Otherwise, most weeknights would work for me.

I'm curious why we still have that W/T position in there. Think about this, potentially 12 teams could start 4 WRs at any given week. That is a lot of WRs and not a whole lot of depth. Only in a rare case is someone going to have 2 decent TEs on the roster.
