It is time for football! OTA’s are done and training camp has been birthed like a spanking new baby with all the possibilities; like that child growing up and finding itself on the wrong end of the law and maybe suspended for a few weeks, but right now we can only see the good! We are tracking its first step and its triumphant first word, “schmohawk,” I am guessing. And as we watch and live through the growing pains of this, the 2010 National Football League Season, join me and a host of other Razzballers in a quest for greatness by participating in our 2010 Razzball Commenter Leagues!
Our old favorite ESPN has opened their fantasy doors and we will ransack and pillage their free leagues while mocking them relentlessly. All leagues will be 12 team, head to head, 1 QB, 2 RBs, 1 RB/WR, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 D/ST, 1 K, and 7 Bench slots. Scoring will be default and the league must be set to Public so we can go and deride those that have let their teams go fallow.
We’re going to have a bunch of leagues and crown a winner from each, then we’re going to crown ONE winner from all of the winners, making a super excessively large winner. We will be crowning the winner by taking each team’s points and multiplying it against a ‘league competitiveness factor’ (Rudy has developed a super secret calculus formula, so nobody but he can understand). So we’re going to fill up as many fantasy leagues as we can before the season starts and see who is the best Razzballer in all the land!
This season we have teamed up with Fantasy Sports Trophies who have graciously offered an overall trophy and individual league trophies. You will someday be able to show your grand kids these trophies and talk about the good old days when fantasy football was a gentlemen’s game and everyone wore top hats and kids didn’t have android helpers and the air didn’t smell of sulphur.
Fantasy Sports Trophies offer a variety of fantasy trophies such as Hockey, Basketball, Baseball, Auto Racing along with fantasy football draft boards for those that like to gather their fantasy clan together for a few brews and some good old fashioned ego depleting put downs. They also carry trophies of the less glorious type. Like, the Biggest Crybaby Award or the Bull Shit Trade Award. So take a look see at their site. There’s something for everyone.
Here is this years overall winner’s trophy in all its glory:
Each league will need an organizer (commish). The duties of the organizer will be to accept 11 other people into the league, set it up at ESPN at the most conducive draft time and make sure the settings are the same as everyone elses. So, leave your names and email addresses in the comments and if you would like to be an organizer and we’ll get things hoppin’! If you have any questions you can email me directly doc at razzball dot com.
