Default Anyone here interested in a fantasy league?

I know I should post this in the fantasy section, but it'll get more serious views here.

I'm wondering if anyone here would be interested in playing in a fantasy hockey leaguge? It wouldn't be for money, just something fun for us to do. If I get enough serious interest, I'll definitely start-up a league.

Let me know guys. I'm really looking forwards to the season. I've got tickets to next Monday's game! Should be lots of fun!

I'm in one that still needs more teams? We have 4 right now and need at least 8 preferably 10. It will be opened up as the draft is tonight at 8:30 PST.

Not too sure I follow the question, so you may have to clarify it more for me.

It'll just be a simple draft league, 10-12 players (depending on interest).

I'm not too familiar to fantasy hockey, so I'll have to look into it more. But I'd love to get a league going with folks on here.

I'd have no problem with doing a $5 entry fee, although I would not be the one to collect the money. That would fall on somebody else (I'm really not comfortable holding people's money).

To the other person who asked the question, I'd probably have a matchup league, where you face off against other people.

I started in 2003 and have played in the same league with friends every year. We do Head to Head style. You play against another player from week to week trying to accumulate more points in different categories. Goals, assists, shots, saves, etc.

One thing playing Fantasy Hockey did that I did not realize it would is get me interested in games other than my favorite team. So the Monday night game between Nashville and Columbus I might actually pay attention to since I have a player or two on either team.

I play fantasy football and baseball, but I sure would like to give this a try. Someone definitely shoot me a PM if this gets going

Yep, I'll definitely let you know if this gets going. Looks like we've got four or five people now. We'll probably need at least four more people. If it does get going, I'll work out the details and pm everyone.

I'd rather not charge anything, but the general consensus is to have an entry fee, so I guess we'll probably have one. I'd rather not hold any of the money, though. If someone else would like to do so, that'd work much better for me.

Again, I'd rather not have a fee, but if we do, it'd only be $5.

I think it would be a lot of fun if there were a league that had a card buy in.

I'm in for a second league. I'm not sure if my other one will happen anyhow. Not too late is it? I don't need to spend money on anything else. So no fee is fine with me.

Still space for you Nap. I'll get a league ready, and send all of you the information (or post it here).

We won't do a paying league, but I'll tell everyone what I'll do. Whoever wins, I'll send them a nice piece for their collection (depending on who they collect). If that sounds good with everyone, I'll get the league set up, and we''ll have the draft on Thursday.

I say we all just throw in five bucks nothing big just gives everybody a reason to play. We can have a trusted user like SethMurphy hold the money or who ever you guys want. Just my thoughts.

I'll post it here, but I'll also PM everyone interested.

It's a twelve team league. League name: Blowout League
Password: leafsforcup (all one word, lower case).

It may not completely fill with people here, so if you know anyone interested, please give them the info
There is no buy in. Draft will take place Thursday night at 8:00 EST.

Please join asap, so I can get an idea on numbers. I'll pm everyone this as well.

League is on yahoo sports as well. Forgot to mention that.

RBKSNIPZ, I think we're going with no buy in. As I said, to the winner, I'll give them something for their PC.
