Football season is quickly approaching. I had a lot of fun in last year's GB league and I didn't see anyone hosting one this year. I figured I would step up and be commissioner. I'm pretty flexible though and willing to listen to what the majority wants.

  • Hosted on Yahoo! fantasy sports
  • 12 teams (first come, first serve)
  • PPR league
  • Draft is August 25th (flexible with the time)

If you have any interest at all then join up. All I ask is that you be active and do your best to make the draft date.

If you need help joining feel free to ask.

Still need 8-10 more people.

Ill do it, i can't sign up until tonight

I'm willing to do it, however I am notoriously bad about keeping up-to-date with my fantasy leagues other than the one I do with my high school buddies. If no one else signs up I'd be more than happy to take a spot, however I wouldn't want to take a spot from someone more suited than I, so I'll hold out for now.

I signed up, I play in a league with old friends for $ every year, but was trying to start another league with my brothers but it doesn't look like that is going to pan out.

Oh okay, sounds good.

I'll let you know if we can't get the last couple near draft time.

I would, but I'm not a fan of football. Fantasy baseball is more my thing.

Password is Taco is in.

#14 Posted by white_sox (178 posts) -

Excellent. Spots are filling up guys so get 'em while they are still available.

#15 Posted by DocHaus (1286 posts) -

Already in a FF league, but I couldn't pass up this chance to fight some fellow duders.

Team "Hello Computer" will swoop in to steal the trophy by picking a RB off waivers in desperation only for him to suddenly become a superstar for that year, just like my team with Peyton Hillis back in 2010.

Only 2 spots left guys...get them while they are available.

lol, I like doing leagues with forumites too. Plus, it gives me fallback when (inevitably) one of my teams fails miserably.

Grabbed one of the last spots

#18 Posted by Ghostface318 (94 posts) -

I lost this thread in the mix, and the league is now full.

If anyone drops, or you go to 14 teams, lemme know.

Otherwise, best of luck gentlemen, may all of your quarterbacks be Mark Sanchez

#19 Posted by sivartTheGreat (23 posts) -

Finding a GBFF league has become an annual tradition for me, so I'm sad it's full up. If the league grows or a second one pops up I'm interested.

#20 Posted by white_sox (178 posts) -

We opened it up to 14 teams...there is exactly one spot left. Anyone interested can have it.

#21 Posted by BoFooQ (620 posts) -

The is currently an odd number of teams so there is at least one spot left for anyone who is interested.

go team tecmo

#22 Posted by oldenglishC (858 posts) -

Just tried to join, but have to go to a wedding on draft day. So still one spot open.

Blarg. Fantasy baseball gets grueling.

I'd probably get in on a Giant Bomb fantasy football league if people were active. Nothing is more boring than a fantasy league where people just don't care.

#24 Posted by deadmoscow (260 posts) -

I tried to sign up, but the league is full! Any chance of bumping the team count to sixteen?

#25 Posted by itspizza (420 posts) -

Draft today. 2 Central (approximately 2 hour and a half hours if you're reading this now). Don't forget!!!

#28 Posted by DocHaus (1286 posts) -

Wait, that's today? Shit, guess I better get my draft strategy/last-minute panic ready!

I hear that. I'm never as prepared as I say I will be and just spend the last hour or so trying to figure shit out.

#30 Posted by DocHaus (1286 posts) -

Holy shit, my team was awesome this week. If you guys just want to hand me the trophy right now I will totally understand.

#31 Posted by Ghostface318 (94 posts) -

Ghostface's Killers are now 2-0 and will be accepting your wives and first-born children as a reaping to prevent your destruction.

At least until this week, when in true Fantasy fashion, I suffer 3 catastrophic knee injuries to my best players simultaneously.

Am I going to be the only one to talk trash here? 'Cause I will, it's no problem, I just want to make sure it's only going to be me.

I'll start my trash talking. Password Is Taco...On their way to a 6-0 start with a win over Ghostface's Killers.
