New league members, check in and let me know the name of your new team and what venue your team will use as its home field. Normally, a venue has to have hosted an NFL game for it to be available on the sim, though there are some college venues that are available as well. Check to see which venues have already been taken before you make your selection!

Once the new player ratings are released (should be some time next week or the week after), I will post the player ratings here so that everyone can prepare for the auction we'll have to stock our teams. I have decided to do an auction as opposed to a draft as it may take us much longer to do a 50-plus round stockin' draft (especially if we limit it to after work hours). Once we have our teams stocked, we will go right into the rookie draft. After everyone comes up w/ their team names and venues, I will announce the order for the draft.

Once again, I remind everyone that this league is fun, but it does take effort to keep it goin'. Unlike last time, I will NOT tolerate league members not participatin', checkin' the site, or updatin' their teams. I understand that everyone has busy schedules, as do I. If I can put forth the effort, so can you.

So, welcome.....or welcome back! Time to get things rollin' again.

No downloads needed. I will provide the form to submit your team's lineups and strategies once we're done w/ finalizin' rosters and such. We're still a ways away from that, seein' that the game won't be released 'til May 4th and then we still have to go through the free agent auction to stock teams.

Ayn Rand fan, eh? I updated the initial post w/ your team's information. Once I create the new league spreadsheet and submit it to all the owners (after we get through free agency and the draft), I will update Jerryworld to the Kraft Dome for ya.

I'll have to wait 'til I get the download to see if Wynne is an available stadium. Since the Ticats played there, it might be, but I won't know 'til May 4th. If it isn't, just have another venue ready.

Tampa T-Bags. Venue is the Old Sombrero if they have it. If not, Raymond James Stadium.

Also, Any way you can e-mail out the rankings in a different format? The ones you posted got kind of jumbled up. Thanks

When the player rankings come out, they won't be in such a long form. It'll just have the numerical rankings and will be easier for me to post in code.

The Los Angeles Ram Raiders will play their home games at the Los Angeles Coleseum.

So is there somewhere I can read how this game is played and how the league works? First timer....Long time fantasy player, but new to this type.

Thanks for having me!

Our past season data can be found in the League Archives subforum, which can be found atop the Sim League subforum's home page. Feel free to check it all out. If after you've done so you have any further questions, let me know.
