Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football

Apparently this Sunday I’m going to be apart of a draft for a fantasy football league. For the most part I have no idea what I’m doing but the experience should be fun. Kramer setup the league (rightfully named Worst People Ever) and it seems there are eight “teams” in our “league”.

I’m fairly sure I’m going to get my ass handed to me. I think the most interesting part of the draft is going to see if either me or vanberge draft Jon Kitna.

If anybody wants to be apart of our “league” I guess it shouldn’t be a problem to join just let either me or Kramer know. Yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble and checked out a few magazines for tips and really still don’t know what to expect going into the draft All I learned is that I need to get a good defensive team, draft running backs first, and don’t draft kickers until the final round because they are so unpredictable. Mostly I’m posting here on the hopes of getting some pointers.

Side note: I didn’t think life could get any worse…. I was WRONG

Update: Look like Colm Feore has been cast as Cherry’s husband (First Male?) for next season.  He was previously seen in ‘The Chronicles of Riddick’ as Lord Marshal.  Actually he wasn’t that bad in that movie at least they have casted a male to do something in this show other then Kiefer.

    that STILL isn’t enough to stop you from watching 24, is it?

    also, i don’t know anything about football. i should have joined teh league just to learn.

    Sign me up.

    I highly recommend revising the default yahoo scoring system. It is some what defunct. If I recall, the CBS/NFL one has the best scoring system. Also, yahoo doesn’t give you free real time scoring which is a drag.

    My family is trying out the fox system this year, I may write up a comparison at the end of the year.

    Vanbergs, vanlandw – i cannot allow you to watch 24 in this upcoming season. Seriously… Janeane Garafalo!? Neither of you can seriously still be considering watching 24 any longer. If you are, Vanhood as we know it is in dire jeopardy.

    With CHERRRY JONES being the PRESIDENT and JANEANE GARAFALO even remotely associated with the series, it is solidified in 36 feet deep concrete that I am not watching this series ever again.

    I am taking pictures of seasons 1-5 to put them all on Ebay as a box set as we speak.

    24 is officially ruined. Good game “Fox”

    I can’t wait until they put Rosie O’Donnell on 24 and see Wes still watching it.

  5. vanlandw says:

    kramer – how do you add people to the league? I tried to login and see if I could do an invite but I don’t think i can.

    Vanberge – I was in absolute disbelief when I saw Miss Garafalo as a casting decision. Deep in my mind I believe the creators of 24 have absolutely lost their minds. But I said the same thing about the guy from Ally McBeal for season 6 and he was the only new character that was worth half a damn. I’ve heard rumors that Gary Oldman could play the baddie in season 7 that would be cool. But I agree with you vanberge as somebody who has watched a show for so long these two new FEMALE characters do nothing for me at all. Totally weak.

  6. vanbergs says:

    I’ll still watch the premiere to see how it goes, but Garofalo is an unforgivable casting mistake. Regardless, I won’t be watching the show on Mondays any more. Vanberge — video games this January – May every Monday night?

  7. FLO says:

    smartest thing i ever did was to stop watching 24 after 8 episodes last season.i too will not be viewing 24 this season. Video Game Monday sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

  8. vanbergs says:

    Action Movie Sunday, Lions Lose Sunday, Video Game Monday…any other weekly holidays we should invent?

  9. Gary says:

    Wes, you should see how ripped I am now.

  10. Kramer says:

    I hate checg.

    Wes, I’m the only one who can invite people to join the league since I’m the commish. I’d be glad to invite fulljeff, but we’d have to find someone else since there has to be an even number of teams. I tried getting Russ to play, but he just said something about football not being emo enough.

    Like Vanbergs, I will watch the premier, but that’s probably it.

  11. bun says:

    lol @ kramer & mg
    affirm @ flo
    gg @ vanberge and vanbergs
    a wagging of the finger @ vanlandw
    a big “i dont know who you are” @ “gary”

  12. vanlandw says:

    cechg – send me some pictures

    kramer – I wonder who else we could get. vanberge do you know if mickeyVB would like to do fantasy football?

    rusty – you are just a totally interesting person

    everybody – depends on how the season starts for me. If it is decent and not lame I’ll watch it when it airs. if it starts sucking I’ll start downloading it and watching it on my free time.

  13. Vanberge says:

    Where are we having the draft? I think we should all get together and hang out. That would make it more fun.

  14. Vanberge says:

    i do not know if mickeyvb would play fantasy football… He does pools at work, so he might not want be up for fantasy football as well.

    we could invite somebody like darrin bamm ? :-/

  15. vanlandw says:

    vanberge – I have absolutely nothing to do this weekend minus saturday afternoon. Sadly I have to work late friday I really want to go out and get trashed.

    Sunday I’m game for getting together laptops in hand and drinking game fuel and making football picks

    you are vanberge

  16. vanbergs says:

    Just an FYI for football fans:

    The Detroit Lions have released former Pro Bowl return specialist Eddie Drummond.
    Drummond was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2004 season.
    That season, he became the second player in NFL history to
    return two kickoffs and two punts for touchdowns in the same
    season.
    Injuries had kept the six-year veteran out of six games during
    the last two seasons.

    The Lions should have kept Edward Drumroll. What they NEEDED to release was their goddamn “Chain Link” blocking formation in the special teams. All it did was provide a train wrecked, cluster fucked stew of fat people for Eddie to smash into.

  17. Kramer says:

    If we want to invite a couple other people, just get me their email addresses.
