    Thumbs Up Hibs.Net NFL Fantasy League

    Now that all the places have been taken up I Thought it would be better to start a new thread with this.

    The Draft: The draft will be an offline draft made on this thread and i will input the players into the appropriate teams once the draft is complete. I think the draft will be the most difficult part to organise so if everyone would make their picks as soon as they can that would make things a lot easier.

    Draft Choice: I think it would be best to have a competition to see who gets first choice in the Draft. You get 1 guess at predicting the Dundee Utd V Hibernian crowd this Sunday. The person closest will get 1st choice and the person furthest away will get last with the places filled inbetween by the people who guess closest to furthest away. if you could put your team name then your prediction so i can match up who is manager of which team. You have until Sunday 12:00 to make your guess if anyone who doesnt guess will be put to the back of the draft.

    The Draft will Start on Monday so make sure you have your pre draft choices ready!

    Let the games begin...........

    Is the draft running so that the each alternate round is in reverse order?

    More like let the daft questions begin. That's gone right over my head . If it's an offline draft, how long do you have to wait before you know if the guy before has gone? Is that no going to take for ever? Hope you don't mean that guy 1 gets to pick his whole team before person 2, person 3 etc, etc... Or are we going down the SKY TV route where you pick a different team every week and everyone can have the same players. More power to you for doing it all and putting the work in but would it no be easier to say to everyone, right we are having a draft at such and such a time on such a date and then work it from there. Soz for the questions but I just don't want to screw it up for everyone else so once I know what I'm doing I'm sure it'll be fine .

    To keep it as fair as possible that is probably the best way to do it. so round 1 will be picks 1 - 10 then round 2 picks 10 - 1

    The picks will be made on this thread and there will be a draft order and you get 1 pick per round (its the best way i can think to work this)

    for example: you get 3rd pick in the draft and TSSF is 2nd you can make your pick once TSSF has made his pick. Its going to take a while but if we're all on the ball it should work out ok. You will pick an offense a bench and a defense, the line up can be found on your nfl teams page.

    Sounds like a good system. I suggest you choose a date and time (say, this saturday 3pm) so we can get it done as quickly and painlessly as possible! (might be hard to find a time when all 10 of us are on .net at the same time).

    This league is different though. You got to take him, even if it's just to annoy everyone else and put him on the bench .

    Why would you bench the best QB in the league? He will post far higher numbers than Sanchez and Teballs!

    Who's benching Rodgers . Anyone daft enough to start Sanchez or Tebow deserves to lose .

    We will need to wait until next week to start as we will need to wait for the draft positions to be finalised first. If we start it on Monday and people make their choices relitively quickly we should be done pretty quickly.

    Unless you can get one of the elite (which will probably be the first 3 picks) your better going for someone else as your first pick. There will be some good QB options available 2nd round . Course, that is if it's a 10 team league.

    I want Brady and since I'm closer to him than most (we're tight) I should get him. Actually, just give me all of the patriots starters. :)

    Brady's my alma mater - paws off

    Hard to pick Patriots players beyond the obvious I reckon - unsure quite how we'll shape up this year. Certainly not interested in taking our defense I have to say!
