you will surely have trouble returning 12 teams. I have a hard time thinking Garso will be back.

I'm in. Couldn't come up with anything more creative than "Boilermaker" for my team name.

Sep. 1 is fine for the draft. It's my daughter's birthday but I'm sure she'll understand.

How do multiple divisions work? Do we draft just among our division so players can be duplicated between the two? Are there inter-divisional matchups before the playoffs?

Everything is the same as far as I know except the division winners get top seeds just like in nfl playoffs (so if someone division 1 winner was 9-5 and division 2 had the winner 11-3 and two teams 10-4, three teams from division 2 would make the playoffs but the team that was 9-5 gets top two seed because they won their division).

I don't really care about division so if we want it to be in the same pool that is fine just let me know.


PJ: I doubt that we get twelve from last year back either, but last year's league had Garso and NittyGritty neither of whom did I send an invitation to, and both of their teams have been kicked out (last year we had 14 teams). I figure I will give two weeks for last year's owners to commit to this year and then I will invite anyone new (which we don't have at this point as far as I know) to take up the no shows spots. In all likelihood we will end up with a 10 team league based on interest so far which in my opinion is optimal.

Can the format be made any more complex, like adding defensive players, or anything? Starting lineups usually require little thought other than on bye weeks.

I'll only do it if its on ESPN. All of my other leagues are on ESPN and it's just a lot easier for continuity's sake and for when I'm on the road on my phone.

ESPN = Yahoo > NFL.com.

While I have never played a league with defensive players, I wouldn't mind. May drive a few players away though.

I've played a few times with defensive players. Unless you have an optimization guru, it becomes a shit show.
