    I know its really really early to be talking about this, but does this site do a fantasy league? I think that it would be cool to organize one.. say the first 12 people that are really serious about it.. but not just limit the fun to those 12 people-- make it something that all of us zoners could keep our eye on and make our predictions and talk smack and pick our favorite team and all that stuff.. I think it would be cool.. Im a fantasy football nut, and I would love to play with a bunch of guys on this board.. I love those leagues that stay active and people talk smack.. thats why i think it would be fun to get the whole board involved, so everyone can be talking smack.. thoughts?

    here's what we ought to do: 3 12 person leagues. next year, put the top 4 from each in a league, middle in a league, bottom in a league. if people drop out, fill up the top leagues with the highest ranked from the lower leagues. then handle it like english soccer, with the top 2-4 teams moving up ever year, the bottom dropping.

    I am up for it if cash is involved. Otherwise people just forget to call their lineups in. We tried it last year and it was an abysmal failure.

    I'd love to be involved but I am in one right now where all my efforts are on beating BDC and some others. BTW, you are going down this year BDC. :D

    You absolutely need to have something riding on the league.

    When it's "just for fun" some people check out as soon as their team is down (**cough** Heavy Hitta **cough**).

    I even did custom sigs for our league last year whereby the high and low point scorers each week would get a "WINNER" or "LOSER" sig... but by week three, the losers started ignoring the deal.

    Ultimately, the league became a joke and a complete waste of time. Unless there was something concrete riding on it, it's just not worth it.

    It doesn't need to be cash, if the gambling angle is an issue. Maybe a league could have the rule that the winner at the end of the season gets a Cowboys jersey of his choice from every loser.

    Let me know what is decided. If money is involved, I'm in, but I need to know that the person in charge of the money is reliable.

    The poster known as The Key ran several last season, but they were of the no cost variety on Yahoo.

    By the way, it's not way too early to be talking about it, I believe Yahoo Fantasy opens in about 2 weeks overall.

    I was in one by Key last year on Yahoo, I ended up losing the title game in that league.

    I agree that if you put money on the line and charge people a certain amount to sigh up then they tend to stay a little more active. You can't just have prozes though for 1st, 2nd and 3rd, there has to be some sort of incentive for teasm even if they are having lousy seasons. You could also throw up a overall points prize and the highest one week score. I'm in a pretty serious, very competitve league and it took about 2 seasons to weed out the guys who gave up when their teams got down, but we've had the same group of guys for a couple fo seaosns and the trash talking is one of the best parts of the league.

    You can definitely count me in for any league involving this site's members.
