It's that time of year again! Football is back! Which means so is one of my favorite activities to participate in ....Fantasy football!
I would like to create a RNIT fantasy football league. If you don't already know, sorting out all of the details (fees, prizes, draft location etc..) for the league is quite time consuming so I wanted to send an email out to gauge interest. Please reply only if you are serious about playing and would be committed to the entire season. The last thing we would want is for people to drop off mid-end of season, very frustrating and not fun for the whole league.
Now on to the fun stuff. If you have ever been a part of a live draft then you know it can be a very exciting time. I am planning on reaching out to some businesses to see if they would allow us to have a draft party (I know hooters and buffalo wild wings have let leagues host their draft parties there). The league size can be anywhere from 8-12 owners. I will go ahead and create the league either using Yahoo Fantasy football (Really like their Fantasy football app) or ESPN. As I get replies I will send out invites to the league so you can join. Once the league is filled up then I will create an official meetup for the live draft (probably to take place in early September. Sunday September 1st is looking very promising since most of us have that Monday off). All team owners should RSVP to this event and let the smack talking begin! Anyone will be able to RSVP and is free to come hang out and enjoy the evening with us team owners. In the process of figuring out the payout structure but right now the range of fees is looking around $20-30 for the entry fee. Since it will be a casual league the payout structure will award a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner (3rd getting their money back more than likely).
Having a Fantasy football league also presents opportunities to schedule future events for us to gather, watch football, smack talk and have an awesome time.
Remember, please only reply if you are serious about playing and are committed to being active for the entire season. We want this to be fun for everyone and if you are serious about playing but not sure how it works feel free to let me know and I'd be happy to help!
Hope to get some replies and make this a fun season!
