I suppose its not a very difficult decision. While fantasy leagues do relate to the sport specific sections, theyre still primarily a fantasy thread. However there are some members who only stick to one section of the forum, so for their convenience it could be kept in the hobby sections.

Id say let them start a sign up thread in hobby sections then have a thread in the fantasy sections

I don't want them to go to the individual sports sections as I think they will end up being filled with threads just for fantasy.

I would love to have it in the sport specific sections. The sport specific sections get higher traffic and you are more likely to get opinions/feedback right away. I have posted in the fantasy section a few times and usually don't even get a response (the last time I posted there was the exception), but overall very few people even click down there. Just my opinion...

totally agree... theres a reason we post it... we want other imput... if we simply didnt care we wouldnt post it... plus fantasy is part of the sport and lots of people on the forum play so why not? i understand peoples worry that there will be too many threads but its part of football if you dont want to read it then dont open it... pretty easy!

Exactly. This is often times the reason why people break the "rule" in place purposely right now. If someone genuinely needs help with something, the probability that it gets answered quicker and correctly in the "Football" section is WAY more likely than if it were posted in the fantasy section.

There's plent of pointless other threads in the football section so I wouldn't mind seeing it posted in the football section.

They need their own forum so those who aren't interested can filter them out of our "new posts" listings. This can only be done if they are in a dedicated subforum.

They are of interest to a very small portion of the forum audience.

Can you put the fantasy forum as a subdivision of the fb section? Same thing with basketball and baseball

This is where they are now and 3 years later very few feel the need to follow the forum format. Putting them under the sport specific areas to me doesnt seem like it will make any positive progress.

They are in the correct area now in my opinion. Fantasy sports talk is not a true sport discussion. If these people truely want to discuss fantasy sports they can seek out the proper area. If people want more feedback on their teams and whatnot than it is up to them to do their due diligence to convince more people to visit the fantasy section on a regular basis.

Posting fantasy talk in each specific sports section is just plain laziness.

If I open the football forum and see a ton of fantasy stuff, I'll probably stop coming here. If I want fantasy talk, I'll go to Rotoworld or read the blurbs on Yahoo.

Can we get a section for
ebay rants
how much is this card worth
Fake patch
Is this auto real.


Honestly, I see no problem with people asking about fantasy football in the football section. I would rather see that then the stuff listed above.

If you see no problem with it why do you go into the football section when people post a fantasy team and put 0 input into the thread other than writing wrong area?

Because if i don't, i have people sending me messages daily crying that I'm not reporting the thread because i got a video game thread moved out of the football section. So i guess if i "cry" bout one i have to cry about them all. Like i said id like to see ff discussion then the list i listed.
Thanks for your 0 input as well.

For example, I was thinking something like:
Blowout Cards Forum
Hobby Talk
Football
Fantasy Football League

And same thing regarding the other 2 major sports
