Anyone interested in a fantasy CFL league ?

...

Would anyone here be interested in playing in an
"old-fashioned" roster-based FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
using individual CFL players during the 2008 season?

I am a CFL fan located in the United States
(Philadelphia, to be exact) and I would like
to put together a 6-team CFL fantasy league.

Actually, I have been running fantasy NFL leagues
for friends since 1994 ... so I am comfortable
organizing something like this without a dedicated
league website.
(Unfortunately, my friends don't have enough time
or interest to also get involved in fantasy CFL.)

I will manually calculate all our players' fantasy
points on a weekly basis and post all our Box Scores,
transactions, and any other league information by
email throughout the season.
(Of course, since all Scoring parameters will be
established before the season, you can double-check
my math if/whenever you feel compelled to do so :slight_smile:

I have a Schedule and Scoring system ready to go
plus a Roster/Lineup structure that should work
nicely in a fantasy league with this amount of teams.

Quite frankly, the only tricky part will be
deciding how we want to DRAFT for our rosters
to start the season. We may just need to all
agree on a mutually available night before the
CFL season to pick individual players by email.
(I suggest maybe an hour-long Draft Mon night 6/23)

Well-- Before I get too far ahead of myself--
Please let me know if you are seriously interested.
I'll elaborate on all the little details once I have
an idea whether or not enough people want to play.

Thanks!

I am quite sure Godrey is very interested in making CFL a fantasy league

I'm more into he pick'ems.

If you post the scoring system, roster configurations, cost and proposed draft date, you'll have no problem getting 5 other guys to participate.

wspidel and Spidey would take up the other two slots. :lol:

Looks neat. Passing points are a little skimpy, no?

I'm interested. I've run an NFL fantasy league for 20 years. I was at Grey Cup in Winnipeg in 2006 and went to same college as Mark McLoughlin.

This Eskimos fan from Kentucky is interested.

I would advise, altaeria, that you run this idea past the organizers of our current fantasy league on this forum, if you're planning to propose your fantasy league for this website.

That is a pretty typical point system from most fantasy football leagues.

Id be in ... just tell me what to do

I apologize if I've stepped on anybody's toes.
