ESPN GeoCoin Fantasy Football League

Recommended Posts

Here in Pittsburgh, my beloved Steelers are cracking helmets on a small practice field in Latrobe. With the lockout over, I can practically smell the pigskin flying through the air on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays, and whatever other day they would like.

 

I wanted to determine everyone's interest in a Geocoin Fantasy Football League.

 

The rules would be standard scoring through ESPN fantasy football. Entry fee would be one unactivated Geocoin.

 

Depending on the number of interested people we would either have the Championship Winner receiving 6 coins (+1 of his own) and the Championship Loser receiving 2 coins (+1 of his own); or we could extend it further if we have more interested people.

 

Let me know if you would be interested (or if there is already a tradition in place here) by responding to this thread.

As other players from the other leagues would probably guess I am in!! :laughing: Is this the same league as we had last year? I haven't seen that manager for awhile.

I would be in.... won't be rooting for the hometeam (Bengals) this year, though... they totally blew the trades. <_< Pretty sure the Lions are my team this year

 

The Lions ?? :blink: OMG you must be desperate!!! :lol: So states a lifelong SE Michigan native.....

 

Ya.... they still have the underdog reputation.... but they have 3 top picks on the team from the last couple of drafts. Suh (should have been #1 draft pick... actually #2)... Calvin Johnson (actually a #2)... and Stafford (#1 in 2009 draft).

 

They just picked up Titus young as a pretty good second WR.

 

Now, All of those boys have had a little bit of experience... and I really think that they will shine this year. Probably won't win a championship... but at least make a playoff run. :blink:

 

edit: Gotta add Jason Hanson at kicker position... man has been playing since 92 (of course he doesn't get hit very often) and has 82 percent completion for FG and 98 percent career for PATs.

Yes you are right there. But after all they are the Lions! :D Can Stafford stay healthy? That's a big question. but it doesn't matter as I always root for them. I have also wondered why no one picks up Hanson on their fantasy team. I had 5 teams last year and my memory may be faulty but I don't remember him being on any teams throughout the entire season

Draft date. Well early this coming week is not good for me. August 17 I have a live draft for another league. I think that would not be too fun to try to draft two teams at once. LOL

 

Oh yeah forgot to say that the evening of Aug 23 won't be good either for me.

Sorry but can I amend my dates? I just found out that I won't have internet access for Sept 1 or 2. Will be gone that weekend--Labor Day. That means that either the 25 or 26 will be my choices if those are the only other dates to choose from.

Alright Folks!

 

League has been filled and finialized.

 

Our draft will be held Friday, Aug 26 at 9:00P Eastern Standard Time.

 

You have the remainder of the week to adjust your Team Names, logos, etc. The ESPN site will randomize the draft list one hour prior to to the draft. I strongly reccommend testing the site before Friday to ensure that you run into no errors on draft day. There are Mock Drafts available to participate in if you need practice.

 

Don't worry if you cannot make the draft date. There are options to preset your player rankings and the computer will autodraft for you based on your list. If that is too intimidating for you, you can simply leave it alone and the computer will draft for you based on ESPN Analyst's Ranking List. Everyone is guaranteed to get a competitive team!

 

The League entry fee is one unactivated geocoin which will be due by September 1. I will send further details from the league site.

 

Good Luck All!

We are on our way toward draft day!

 

Our draft will be held Friday, Aug 26 at 9:00P Eastern Standard Time.

 

We do have a late position opened in the league for ANYONE that would like to get in that may have missed out on the waitlist. Contact me today via PM or email to sign up! Entry fee is one unactivated geocoin.

 

The prizes have already started to trickle in. Currently, we have a Go Team touchdown Football coin and a 10-10-10 coin that will be up for grabs! Once all coins are received, I'll post the pot list!

The Fire Museum coins (with pathtag inserts) should be available by Sept 11 in either copper or I will have a LE coin in Black Nickel. So I will let you all know when they are here. I promised the Fire Museum folks I would not sell any until after their Premier event on 9/11, 2011 for the 10th anniversary Memorial. They will also have them available in their gift shop.

if you still need someone, i am in!!!

I kept checking in from 8:55 to 9:30 eastern time and could not find the draft. The computer picked for me, so much for the research I did for the draft. Oh well, someone will enjoy the coin I'm sending.

 

I think that ESPN fantasy site is a bit harder to figure out than Yahoo. I signed in about a half hour early last night. Even though I had done a mock draft earlier in the week it still took several minutes to figure out how to get to the right place. The link I kept clicking on sent me to the mock draft lobby. I finally found on our team site where it saic something like enter live draft.
