You bet! I'd be all for it - last year, we had a staff fantasy baseball league, but I'd like to open a football one this year up to the public, EVERYONE. I think Yahoo! would be a good place to play, too.

Hmm, we'll use a site of course, I was just thinking of a little more participation than that. Like drafting our whole teams. We'd have to get it done quick, though, because it's already late July. We may just have to use one of those automated drafts.

Use Yahoo! and you can set a live draft, that way people can be there if they want, but they can also prerank.

Let's just use Yahoo!. This league will be used for both SC's public one discussed here and our staff one discussed elsewhere since I don't see the logic in running two separate leagues now. We need to determine how many players we need and then we need to get commitments from everyone before we put this show on the road. We also need to decide on a commissioner, I fear I am too busy to be it.

OR...we can set up a league at FANBALL.COM. I played last year, and instead of a LIVE draft, they have a system which allows a team 12 hours (or whatever the time set is) to make their selection when it is there turn to pick. This way if an owner cant make the LIVE draft, they still have time. The time limit begins when the previous person made their pick. Also, the time limit stops between the hours of like 12am-9am, because most people are asleep at that time, and it wouldnt be fair if the time limit was going and you were sleeping. After your time is up then a player is selected from your rank sheet, which is very valuable. If everyone pays attention to the draft, and when they are selecting, the draft will go by fast. Im not sure if this draft system is available on other sites such as Yahoo. Let me know if your interested, ill set it up and commish. Otherwise it doesnt matter where we play, just a suggestion.

I played on Fanball last year, on the Bid2Play pay leagues and loved it. However, I have used Sandbox, Fanball, Sportsline and Yahoo! before and I really don't care what site, I would just like to commish! Sign up for Sandbox and Sportsline has begun, Fanball's free leagues start sign up on the 24th and I have no clue about Yahoo!.

I would love to be a fantasy league. I was thinking about fanball as well. I like the idea of the 12 hour selection process. We then get to draft our own teams. I played fanball last season and it didn't take long at all to draft. I think it was 2 weeks at the most!!

Sounds great

Alright, lets try and put together a league, and set up the divisions, this way when the Fanball Leagues open, we're ready. I say a ten man league is good, maybe 12. How our we going to determine the Draft Order???

I think it decides draft order for you, I too like Fanball. As soon as the league sign up begins, I will create the SC league. If anyone has a big exception to Fanball, please PM me and I will consider.

And if its not Yahoo! I'm not playing. But, don't let that influence you. I just don't want to be in any fanball leagues for this season.
