TS65 Memorial MKTF FFB HQ
« on: June 27, 2017, 08:29:16 AM »
Hello!

I figured I would start a thread where we can keep up with the FFB league this season, and hopefully many seasons to come.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

The league is on Yahoo this year..we are going with eight players.  So far all have signed up except Bastyd and Fish.

I had planned on bringing Brother back, but he seems to have left the site and stopped setting lineups in the FBB league, so he's out.

The draft, as traditionally has been, will be the night before Labor Day at 10:00pm ET.  That is September 3rd this year.

Any chance we can do labor day evening instead?
I go to the lake every labor day weekend.

Sure.  We could do that if there are no objections.  Would have to roll back the start time a little, being a work night.

I'm good with whatever time you decide for Monday.
If it has to be Sunday, I guess I can take my laptop with me and make drunkin' picks.
And I'd still have a better team than Bob's Rockers...lol.

Okay Coach, the draft is now 7pm ET on Labor Day.  I also moved our Future GMs league to 4pm ET on the same day.

Saw that the other day in my emails. Thanks, Blitz!

Thanks, I think I've used it here before. No Oriole players on the roster worth putting up, so I went with my 2nd most admired player of all time. Cal Ripken Jr. is my 1st.

The desire and dedication from both those guys are almost impossible to match.

You ever watch the movie "Cobb"?
Doubt they could have ever found a better fit than Tommy Lee Jones for that role.

Just sent away e-mail invites to Bastyd and Fish through their e-mails on file here at the site.  Give it a little time, but pretty soon might have to look at other arrangements.

20 days to the draft!

Bastyd is in.  Just need Fish.

P.S.  I hope everyone likes the league logo!  (See below)

That logo is awesome.

Yes, it breaks my heart, yet at the same time I think it's a beautiful thing you went with it!!!

Thank you.

You do this league proud, and I've no doubt Eliot is smiling!!!

Great draft!

Yahoo graded me a C+, and projected me 8th place at 3-11!!   saywha

McCoy/Gordon is a dynamite RB tamdem, two of the Top 5 in the game.  And Cooper/Hopkins/D. Adams is a pretty darn good WR trio!  QBs are Matty Ice and Big Ben!

Reserve backs are C.J. Anderson, McFadden (starter until Zeke returns), Powell & Forte (Jets timeshare).  Receivers are Watkins, Marshall, and Moncrief.

Tight ends could be better -- Bennett and Fleener.  But they have Rodgers and Brees throwing to them, so..!

I don't see a 3-11 roster there.  towl

Friggin' Bastyd's RB Hunt hung 40 points on me last night.

Guess I'll be 0-1 to start. :(

Funny to see so many fans of other teams celebrating the Pats loss all over social media.
I knew they were hated, but this goes beyond even DallASS Cowboys hate.

Let's get it on!

So proud for the pride of Toledo, Kareem Hunt!  Best showing by a rookie RB in his debut in NFL history!
