Announcement: 2012 fantasy football league registration now open!

By
Updated: August 5, 2012

We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our first annual “Black and Blue Blog” NFL fantasy football leagues through Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. We will be offering two leagues: Reesy’s Rebels, an individual defensive players (IDP) league helmed by Ms. K. Moss as commissioner, and Woude’s Warriors, a more traditional defensive/special teams (DST) league headed up by Johnathan Wood.

Fantasy football is amongst us, ladies and gentlemen, which means our lives will now be plagued with the weekly affliction of perfecting our rosters.

Fantasy football is amongst us, ladies and gentlemen, which means our lives will now be plagued with the weekly affliction of perfecting our rosters.

The IDP league will draft on August 29, 2012  at 7:45 p.m. CT, while the DST league drafts on August 30, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. CT.

What is being offered:

The leagues have slightly different ways to earn points and are not in competition with each other — although if there is sufficient interest, we may create a “League of Champions” to pit the best teams from each league later.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each league, provided you are comfortable with giving out your address to prize director K. Moss. Should you choose to decline your prize, it will be awarded to the runner up. Further details regarding prizes will be coming soon.

Please review the chart below to determine which league you prefer. All details are subject to change between now and draft day.

Registration

Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Once one league has reached its maximum number of 12 players each, you must sign up for the other league. If there is a situation where both leagues becomes full and there are still a number of members who wants to participate, a third league will be created. You may only sign up for one league unless you are pre-approved by the other league’s commish. However, we ask that you wait until draft day of that league before signing up to give other people a fair chance at participating.

At this time, our registration form is down, so please email your name, address, phone number, choice of leagues (IDP or DST), and whether you would be interested in playing in both leagues should spots become available to [email protected]. You will receive an invitation by email to the league of your choice. (As mentioned before, if you do not include your mailing address, you will not be eligible to win prizes.) If your don’t receiver your invitation in a timely manner, check your spam folder. Make sure to sort your spam by time received instead of by sender so that the invitation is easy to find.

Please stay tuned for more fantasy football updates as we draw closer to the 2012 NFL kickoff. Good luck, and above all, have fun!

Drivel: a few scoring settings are off for my league:

1) Defensive scoring is not IDP

2) Only 2 Flex roster positions (currently says 3)

This looks great though!

Damn, myp2p.cm doesn't have the game tonight.

Is Kyle Orton the back up in Dallas now, where is he? It would be funny if something happened to Romo and Orton somehow ended up taking the Boys to the playoffs.

Someone asked early about draft spots, that will happen after each team is full about an hour or so later the day of.

Who agrees with my theory that Peyton Manning hates backup quarterbacks? Has he ever had a backup that wasn't a suckasaurus?

@aciddragon 

Someone called Axford a Queer today on Twitter and the dude got man handled by Ax and his followers. I think he deleted the comment.

Replacement refs for tonight's game. I wonder how that's going to work out.

Ima look like a fool doing this whole FF thang. Only done it one year, two different leagues. I am not savvy.

@jwoude23 What exactly is wrong? K. Moss typed it up.

@Um... I would be happy to see Orton do well. I hoped the Bears would get him back, but the consolation prize was him beating the Packers.

@Reesypieces  ????  so once the league is full we will get to see the draft location?

@Reesypieces  well i think it was Fiers sister that cussed out the bullpen after blowing a save for him

@BearsSaveLives Oh, shit, I forgot about the game. I should look for a stream and embed it on a page for those who can't see it on TV.

Like me.

@BearsSaveLives if the regular refs don't get back soon they may be better off with the replacements, since the regulars might not bee up to speed

@Um... i can relate i have never played before and will probably finish last

@jwoude23 Why are none of the feeds from firstrowsports.eu playing on my computer?

ЯD

@jwoude23 Yeah, but unfortunately that feed isn't directly embeddable. I will have to embed the whole page, I think.

@aciddragon I'll agree he was the best of the bunch, but he's going up against Curtis Painter and Caleb Hanie.

Fantasy football is fun. You will find yourself knowing more about(and rooting for) more teams than you thought possible

BearsSaveLives

Why, so you can take Tim Tebow right before I am going to draft him? No sir!

@aciddragon My goodness, I have never seen FirstRowSports be so fast and responsive before. They must have moved to a damn good server.

@Um... agreed i watch all the MMA pay-per views and Packer games i can't get on cable

@aciddragon Feds cant seem to get their .EU site shut down much to my enjoyment.

ЯD

@aciddragon Yep, but if I embed it in our site here, we shouldn't have to deal with all the ads.

@BearsSaveLives It is a crime against humanity that Michael Irvin has a commentating job on any network. It should be required that a) one does not sound like he has marbles in his mouth and b) one has something to say in order to work for a network.

@EvilDonkey only a 100? Hochuli is gonna come after you for doubting his strength
