USSM fantasy interest ping

DMZ · January 20, 2008 at 12:27 pm · Filed Under Site information 

Hey folks — with the collapse of my long-running Diamond Mind sim league, I’ve been thinking of cooking up something on one of the free services (ESPN/Yahoo/?), using some more realistic measures (no defense, unfortunately) to set up something fairly light-weight… who’d be up for it? Any thoughts on what we should use if it happens?

(and don’t worry if we get like 9k responses — if this happens, participation would be a whole different issue)

    I’m pretty amaeturish, but it sounds like it would be fun.

    I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’d give it a whack!

    Count me in.

    Looks like you may need several leagues lol

    count me in.

    Sorry am late… busy weekend. I would participate.

    Count me in! I’ve played in Yahoo leagues for the past 6 years, commish 4 times. I don’t know if does the same thing for baseball, but in Fantasy Football, they had a bunch of different divisions. Just a thought…

    I’d love to be part of this. Count me in! Although judging by all the responses I’ll be in league 7b. As far as whether ESPN or Yahoo should be used, it’s been my experience that Yahoo! tends to be more user friendly. I’m not sure which site offers the best customization tools though, as I’ve only ever GM’d on Yahoo.

    I’d be interested

  10. tad on January 21st, 2008 10:48 am

    I would be interested too! How many leagues are we going to need?

  11. HamNasty on January 21st, 2008 11:00 am

    Like the other 110 people, I would also be interested.

    I’m interesed and it would be nice (as I think someone else suggested) to have a multiple division league, division playoffs taking place in september. Maybe 8, 10-team leagues (80 participants). This would only work in a head-to-head format which isn’t my preference but it would be the only way to accomodate so many people. I’d think that there’s a fantasy system out there that is built for large communities like this.

    As a long time reader, and VERY infrequent poster, I’d like to throw my hat in along with the other 111 people who have shown interest. As to what sites to use, I’ve been a part of leagues on Yahoo for the last 3 seasons, and haven’t had many complaints at all. I’d be very interested in a keeper league as well.

  14. LoydKristmis on January 21st, 2008 11:32 am

    I’m interested. Been playing for 7 or 8 years. Very competitive. Roto or H2H. Serpent or auction live (online) draft. Doesn’t matter to me!

  15. Bruce on January 21st, 2008 11:42 am

    I’d love to jump in, too. I’ve been in private Yahoo! leagues for the last few years. I couldn’t convince our group to branch out from the standard roto categories, but Yahoo!’s options seemed flexible enough to do something much more interesting.

  16. Taylor H on January 21st, 2008 11:50 am

    We might need more like five or six leagues!

  17. oac001 on January 21st, 2008 12:08 pm

    I’d be down for a Yahoo fantasy league, been doing that for a couple of years now.

  18. gthorson on January 21st, 2008 12:16 pm

    I’m very interested.

  19. Joe C on January 21st, 2008 12:31 pm

    I’m in.

  20. Trev on January 21st, 2008 12:40 pm

    I’ll make it 120. You can do a reasonable linear-weights system on Yahoo (that’d be season totals), but you can’t do any sort of non-roto head-to-head.

  21. bongo on January 21st, 2008 3:04 pm

    I’d be up for it. I’m still in a Diamond Mind league, but the simulator behavior strangely and the stats provided aren’t as useful as they could be (e.g. no GB/FB ratios).

  22. Lifelong_Fan on January 21st, 2008 9:43 pm

    Count me in as interested!

  23. e.vole on January 22nd, 2008 9:22 am

    Love to!

    sound of throwing pork pie hat into ring

  25. Wood Dog on January 22nd, 2008 11:30 am

    Looks like the JV league is a go. I’ll copy whatever format the Varsity league uses and we’ll take it from there.

  26. brown1981 on January 22nd, 2008 12:36 pm

    count me in

  27. tangotiger on January 22nd, 2008 12:53 pm

    If you are looking for LWTS-style values, studes has an easy set:

  28. thefin190 on January 22nd, 2008 1:55 pm

    i’ll most likely be JV.

  29. NVS on January 22nd, 2008 8:20 pm

    Count me in. nothing like drafting ichiro first round just to trade him.

  30. dh on January 23rd, 2008 9:19 am

    I’m interested.

    Put my name in the hat…long time reader, first time commenter (done with sarcastic talk radio call-in intro).
