As you may or may not be aware, we’re going to try and run a bunch of fantasy football leagues this year.
We put out a few tweets last week to gauge interest and received 117 responses, and I’m sure once this blog post gets tweeted out that more people will express interest. (If you’re not on that list in the previous sentence’s hyperlink, and want to be, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.)
117… I don’t know what I was expecting but my first thought was “holy crap.”
Soooo, we’ll need volunteers to commish these leagues — don’t email or DM me yet but start thinking about if you would be willing to fill that need for whatever league you participate in. Also, think about if you’re qualified, since it would be best if commissioners brought experience and desire to the table instead of just the latter.
Anyway, I know it’s only June but I figured we should get moving on details sooner than later so we’re not throwing this all together at the last minute. Several tweets expressed opinions on what rules should be in place, how big the leagues should be, etc. So I’m going to give you a few polls and ask you to respond accordingly.
Two quick rules:
1) Don’t answer unless you’re planning on actually participating.
2) Don’t be an idiot and vote more than once. We’re going to do our best to accommodate everyone’s preference with different league setups, so let’s keep this legit and realistic.
3) Bonus 3rd rule! Well, not a rule… but please remember that this is going to take a lot of effort so be patient through all this. :)
Anyway, here’s the first in a series of questions. There will be more posted later today/tomorrow/this week.
What size league do you prefer?
