Welcome to the 8th year of ToO Fantasy Football!

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

Hard to believe we've been doing this for 8 years. \:D/

...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Yay! Welcome back, friends. \:D/ That's 5 players so far!

Ideally, we need three more. GIA99, EII, and SWA, or any newcomers interested?

Huzzah! Welcome back, Eugene. \:D/

One more open spot remaining... in the past, this spot has been filled by SWA, EK, John Chrysostom, and others. Who shall it be this year?

Welcome to the league, Monty_Whittaker! And that makes 8! \:D/ Please create an ESPN account and then private message me your email address. I'll send you an invitation to join the league!

For clarity, this league is still open for sign-ups, but only in pairs from this point on. So if anyone else wants to join, post here and we'll see if we can find another player to even things out. (This league really only works with an even number of teams.)

The NFL season begins September 6th, so we have several weeks before we will need to conduct the draft. Anyone have any early thoughts, blackout dates, or suggestions on the draft?

Other than wanting it to be around preseason week two, as usual, I have no important input on draft scheduling.

I can't be there the 10th or 11th...other than that, I think most August evenings are open.

Based on the above feedback, I'm proposing that we schedule this for August 17 (a Friday) at 9PM. Thoughts?

Draft Has Been Scheduled!

Based on the feedback received, we will hold the draft one week from today:

If you cannot attend, be sure you set your Pre-Draft Player Rankings and Autopick Strategy so you have the best chance at your preferred players. \:D/
