ESPN has opened up their fantasy football for the 2013 NFL Season. As this is a baseball site, we are relegated to the fan posts, but you know what kind of fun we have here. For those new to BCB Fantasy Football, let me give you the basics:
1) this is purely for bragging rights with the ability to put a championship banner in your signature.
2) We mostly base our success in how much we can make each other laugh, whether it be in the comments of the weekly updates, or our team names. Speaking of which...
3) Your team name must be clever, preferably original, funny, or referencing something in pop culture. It will have to be approved. My wife is the final arbiter in this department. Do not come to the table with any of the following: Show me your TDs, Prestige WorldWide, Mean Machine, BadNewz Kennels, Ur-ine Trouble, anything referencing baseball (Strangely, the Brew Crew was the 121st most popular fantasy football name), TDs and Beer. These are unoriginal, and in fact in the top 200 of fantasy football team names. Here are some examples from last year:
Sanchez's Lil Black Yearbook, CAM I wish I was your lover, Sandusky's Little Giants, Saints 10K Sack Attack, Man getting hit by football, The Duke Silver Experience, Soapin Up with Jerry's Kids, Somebody I Used to So'Oto, The Rusty Zombones, Lil Sabastian Janikowski, JoPa's Blind Eye.
That's the quality that you are being held up to. There will be a separate thread for that.
Every week, I do a game review and power rankings. These power rankings are in the very scientific method of I had more points than you so I outrank you, wins or not. I keep the league size even and the points the same for accurate interleague comparison. Hopefully, you'll be able to see league settings and scoring here. Otherwise I'll edit this post with the team size and scoring.
In the mean time, if you want to play, INCLUDE YOUR BCB NAME AND email me at

The drafts will likely be held between August 30th and September 3rd. That includes the weekend of August 29th 30th and 31st where I hope to knock out most of that draft. Be sure to clear time for a draft (usually around 1.5 hours on typical snake drafts, though some rogue group may want to do an auction).
Also post in this thread to let me know you're in.
