* 14-Jul(#1)
That time of year again. Time to get ready for fantasy football in "Not Reed's Fantasy Football League." Last year, Scots ran this league by himself, however this year he's a little busier so I volunteered to help him out and take over a bit. Everything below is copied from last year's thread, so forgive me if I miss anything.

The following is who was in the league last year. I'm going to give everyone from last year first dibs - a few days to reply to this and join again. If players from last year are out, we'll start a waiting list below for people to join. There should be a few openings this year as there are a few who may not be back. You can PM me or post below to join the waiting list. We want this league to be full of people who are active on the site - who will post here, discuss the league, respond to trade offers, etc.

So get back to me and let me know. League info and settings are below. Should be another fun year! Once we have the league filled, we'll start to talk about draft dates. This year the league will be .5 PPR scoring, which is the fantasy industry standard scoring system now.

MEMBERS FROM LAST YEAR:

1. @ufcchamp322 - PAID

Still waiting for two guys from last year to respond. Neither have been on here in a number of months. I sent maddawg a message through the baseball league I'm in with him, but haven't heard anything there either.

I'm probably going to open it up to the waitlist in a day or so. Just for the record, I put Longhorns first on the waitlist since he was there last year as well, and I put Clint on after that since he and I have been talking about this league for weeks. theJAwwww is third as he was the first to post on here. Anyone else is welcome to join the waitlist as well.

I used your MPetrochuk@hotmail.com email which it shows on here. If that's not right, let me know and I'll change it. You should have received an invite from ESPN.

If anyone else's email has changed from last year, please PM me and I'll update it.

Alright, changed it to 9:00. I think 9:30 might be a little late to start, but it doesn't really matter to me. I'm always up late.

As for the draft order, does anyone object to me just using the randomized built into ESPN? I can promise everyone there will be no shenanigans on my part. If anyone has another way to do it that's fine. Just trying to keep it simple.

Just an FYI, I changed your team name to team broccoli. We've always kept our team names as our gtz names in this league just to make it easier to know who you're dealing with.

My personal opinion is that if 2 guys want to do a straight-up draft position swap, I'm ok with it. Anyone opposed?

I agree. I don't know that ESPN will let you trade like a 1st and 3rd round pick for a 2nd and 4th or something along those lines. If it's position swap though, that is fine.

I tried to figure out how to do that for another league and I couldn't figure it out. I'll look again though. If anyone knows a way let me know.

You can figure out potential deals, but I would like to get a consensus from the league before that decision is final. I'm not a fan of changing things before having the opinion of other league members. I'm personally okay with it, but it's not just up to me.

I am not sure what you mean.

Are you saying other league members might not be OK with me or others trading picks for multiple picks?

I am OK to take a vote on it, after all I want what's fun for everyone! But this is nice because it makes you more GM like!

I have never done this before and this would be a first for me, I think it's a cool idea.

@longhornsk57 - It's got nothing to do with GM power or anything like that. It's not something we've done before, and it's always best to get buy-in from multiple people in the league before setting a protocol on something like trading draft picks.

A direct pick swap is one thing, as it doesn't change the experience or league landscape for anyone. But multiple picks changes the game and certainly would be something that would need to have buy-in from the league as a whole.

Sorry, what i meant was the reason I like this is because it makes me (and us) feel more like a real GM, it makes the whole thing more real and more fun and you get more control over your picks and season. I didn't mean anything else other than how fun I think this would be.

As far as input, I am fine with that. Let's get some opinions on it, I do want everyone to have fun with the league so agreed we should have a majority agreement on it.
