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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
