1990-Present Fantasy Football Leagues

I have been getting some interest of other posters wanting to make an identical league for their team, just like the example below in those websites. This blog is to find out which of the posters are in reality, interested in creating a rival league to the Kansas City Chiefs League. My hope is to find out who is all serious about creating an identical fantasy league shown in the websites below, and after all of the leagues tournaments are finally over with. We have a tournament with all of the League Champions squared off against each, in an AFL-NFL playoff format in honor of the 50th Anniversity of the AFL. Where the League Champions representing the teams that played in the AFL during the AFL years play in one bracket, and the League Champions representing the team who were in the NFL before 1970, or have been in the NFL during their entire existence play in the other half. If we have to change the Tournament Format later on, we can. My hope is to have, at least, 2 Leagues created for each half of the bracket. The Champions' Tournament format can be changed, though, depending on how many leagues we end up with. Any fan that will be interested in creating, or joining a league for their team will not be turned away, unless their team's league has already been filled up, in which case the fan will be put on a waiting list, in case one of the team owners for that league are unable to complete building their team. Creating a league is now done. We will be focusing on getting this 9 Leagues filled, and trying to get them through the draft, to the tournament, and their Champion into the Championship Round.

Keep in mind this is no ordinary Fantasy League. You are actually adding only players that played for your team from 1990-2008.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q1:
Is it free?
A1: The leagues, and the Champions Tournament are 100% free.

Q2: How much time will it take me?
A2: The leagues as a whole, will take probably around 3-6 months. It will vary depending on how long each independent drafts last, rather there is free agency and how long that lasts, and how long each round lasts. However, you will probably be asked to put a minutes, or 2 every couple of days, and you will only be setting your starting line-up up once.

Q3: How is the scoring to work, since there are players who are already retired?
A3: Remember, this is no ordinary draft. Individual stats do not mean anything in this league. You are trying to build the best team possible. The better your offensive line is, the more time your QB will have before he risks being sacked, and the more yards per carry your RB will get. The worse your offensive line is, your QB is going to be in danger of getting sacked a lot, and your RB will have less yards per carry. Once all of the teams are complete. You will be faced off against other teams in your league, in a tournament. The games will be decided by fan voting. The fans will be voting for which team they believe will win the game head-to-head. Each fan gets one vote per game. 1 vote = 1 point. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the game will win.

Q4: What if the game ends up as a tie, what will be the tiebreaker?
A4: Once the game has been declared over. All the points will be added up. If the game ends up as a tie, than the League Commishioner will decide how to break the tie.

However, what will be done in the Champions' Tournament is that if a game ends up in a tie. The game will be reopened, for a sudden death, like in the real NFL. Once 1 voter makes a vote, the game will end, and the tie will be broken.

The team owners can decide had to recruit team owners, add players onto the team, how to run the draft, rather there is a draft, rather there is a free agency, how to run free agency, rather there is trading, rather the tournament is non-elimination, double-elimation, single-elimation, or so on, how form the draft, tournament format, and basicall anything besides the rules I have listed below for all leagues to follow.

The reason why all leagues must follow these is so we can have the League Champion's Tournament work with as little confusion as possible.

A) All games are to be voted by the fans. Each fan's vote is worth 1 point, but the team owner's for that tournament do not have a vote. This is to prevent bias voting among the owners.

NOTE: Prefer that you keep the team owners' idenities secret, and have all troll's vote worth 0 point, but that part is up the individual leagues.

B) Offense will be a 9-team starting line up of 1QB, 1RB, 2WRs, and 5OLs.

C) 1. Defense will be a 9-team starting line up of 3DLs, 3LBs, 2CBs, and 1 Safety for the 3-3 defense (It is a smaller 3-4 defense.).
...or...
C) 2. Defense will be a 9-team starting line up of 4DLs, 2LBs, 2CBs, and 1 Safety for the 4-2 defense (It is a smaller 4-3 defense.).

D) There will only be 18 players per team. There is no special teams, no back ups, and no Practice Squad.

E) All players added to the teams must have been on your team's roster during the seasons of 1990-2008, and played in at least 8 games with that team.

F) The player that you will be drafting will be the player during their best years with your favorite team. So Kansas City Chiefs' League would have the DE Neil Smith of 1988-1996 during his best years during those 9 season. The Denver Broncos' League would have the DE Neil Smith of 1997-1999 during his best years during those 3 seasons.

G) The most important rule is. If there is any rule you do not want to break. This is the one. Have fun doing this.

So with that all said. If you are interested in creating one these leagues. Please post on here to let me know if you seriously want to start one up. You do not have to have a league, yet, to post on here. This is just for posters who are interested. Once we have, at least, 4 teams, or at the end of the week (Whichever one comes last.), we will go on from there, and try to help each other get our league's completed.


EXCEPTIONS FOR CERTAIN LEAGUES:
These exceptions are for the Cleveland Browns (1990-1995; 1999-2008), the Carolina Panthers (1995-2008), the Jacksonville Jaguars (1995-2008), the Baltimore Ravens (1996-2008), and the Houston Texans (2002-2008) ONLY!!!

These are all options for the five leagues, The League Commishioner can choose whichever one they choose from their League's Options.

CLEVELAND BROWNS: A) The League Commishioner can add the 1987-1989 seasons to make up for the three years out of football.  B) The League Commishioner can run the league with 4-6 teams, if 8 teams are too much. C) The League Commishioner does not have to use either Option A, or Option B.

Bowe, I don't care what team it is, when the next team is just one short of being full if it ok with them, I will take part in their draft as well so hopefully we can get more teams going in this tourney.

Yes that is correct SUPR.

Also, two of the other leagues are up and running their draft. One is running smoothly. The other one hit a bumping road, but looks like it might be back on a smooth track, soon. The other ones are having a hard time getting enough committed members.

So I take it each league will compete amongst each other until one team is left, then they will be thrown against other leagues?   Should be interesting.   So how are all the other leagues running?   We Steeler fans are officially done.

Just wanted to drop by and say the Steeler draft is complete! Well the last two picks need to be put in but it will be complete soon. Thanks for all the help Bowe. I also wanted to say I too am a football junkie and would be willing to join another teams draft if any fall one team short (it just cant be the Pats, Boys or an AFC North team). Our draft will have taken less than two weeks to complete if it gets finished like I suspect it will tomorrow.

Once all 8 members have agreed to join. I will create a private Draft Room f
or all 8 to join. In that group, the leagues rules will explained, and there will be a draft room built on there. The league draft will begin once all of the 8 team owners have signed up, and all of the league rules have been finalized.

Something I've been noticing from the leagues that have already started. It has been taking a while to get the leagues started, and moving. However, after a round or two in the draft; things begin to really speed up.
