  1. A Happy New Year to all at Songfacts!
  2. Well, hmm. 6 people only interested this year. Quite honestly, that's really not going to be a very fun league. If even one or two of the 6 were to become busy or lose interest here and there, it's even less so. I'm thinking we should just give it a pass this season then, and hope for a bit more interest next year? I realize folks aren't popping onto this site as much as they used to so catching attention can be a bit trickier now and it can be just a matter of timing. Alternatively, we could start once the season begins, but unsure if that even would help. No CanAm, Sammy, Rocky, nor RJ -or even another Songfactor ? Either way, I'm quickly running out of time to properly commish the beginning of the season, so there's that as well. Any thoughts?
  3. Ok, that's 6 ... Carl, Kenne, Carole, Blues,Phil and myself. Thanks for the quick feedback. RJ ? Are you wanting to play this year? No problems connecting with the league, et al? Sometimes I'm amazed at how much easier it has become, and at others, stunned by how complicated something once rather simple now is (if you overlook a tiny step, etc.)....
  4. Ok, well I hope everyone from last season will have a chance to pop in. We had 8 last year. Now, this was my first time to invite players directly from Yahoo, so I can't be 100% certain I have done everything correctly yet. Check Yahoo mail for an invite first; not sure if one came or not, but the league is showing everyone as registered so I think all you need to to is go to the Yahoo! Fantasy Football page, find the league, and confirm it shows you there, then bookmark it for draft and play. Here's the URL: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/594345 The league name seems to be frozen so far and I can't seem to find a way to change it yet: Songfacts Football 2015 Be sure to post on here if and when you are able (or aren't able) to get in. If we don't have enough players by the end of the month then we'll scrap the whole thing this year, so get back to us asap, please. We are leaving for Ireland on Sept. 1 for about a week, so let's get our confirmations, draft choices, and draft all done before then. Preferably a couple days before.
  5. Sorry guys, I'm trying to start a new league via Yahoo reinvites. Seem to be having some troubles with it, so pardon the spam you may be getting. Going to reinvite last year's 8 players and if anyone else wants in, let us know here.

  7. Congrats to you both... And to think it was ALL DUE TO ME! You owe me BIG TIME, Bluesy! Have fun, you crazy kids.
  8. Well, karma is a bitch for Brady this year. Regardless of the football's psi, he no longer has anyone to throw to anymore! lol Congrats to Phil for 1st, Carl for 2end, and Carole for third - and Sammy for very successfully climbing out of the basement to a respectable 5th. It was another fun season and thanks all for playing. Enjoy the real playoffs now, and we'll hopefully see you all next season.
  9. Happy New Year, Sammy-and all the rest at Songfacts! Yes, where did the time go?...
  10. My, my! Another crazy week -all upsets! Congrats, Phil! See? Starting 0-4 doesn't mean much. Well done to stick with it and build up a strong team. I started thinking 'what if I had...', but there's no point. I went with who got me this far- and you had Beckam suspended- so c'est la vie. That near end-of-game 90 yard TD pass to A. Robinson was the dagger pretty much when I saw it yesterday: 16 points in a flash. Good luck to both you and Carl in the final, and Carole and I can pull hair and scratch for 3rd now. lol Good luck to Sammy and Kenne in the consolation final as well. Careful in week 17 everyone; some teams will go easy on their stars if a playoff spot is certain, so choose your starters carefully!
  11. Wow! Upset city. Blues and Kenne got smacked out. I thought I was going to go as well until the last Arizona game gave me so many points you should be afraid -very afraid! lol. Well, anyway, for those out, there is still a consolation round to play, and congrats and good luck to those who won this week. See you all in the funny papers.
  12. Playoffs start this week, folks ,and all are in it, so don't forget to set your line-ups. Some good tight match ups this week so far. Good luck!
  13. Exciting weekend of games with 2 upsets and some surprising developments in our rosters-for better and worse. Well done Ian for knocking me off. Never dreamed Russel Wilson was capable of 49+ points in a game. Sammy's upset was a sort of miracle with a QB and another player scoring 0 but still getting 144 points - and getting the blow-out of the week even. Imagine if he had a QB? Vegas is going to be shifting around the playoff odds this week as Phil and Blues are getting solid points weekly now usually in the 140-150+ range. Carole, Carl and I are going to have to find ways to score more points again or just hope our guys had off weeks. Two more games to go before the playoffs start, and this past week has shown that anything can still happen so don't give up on your bunch just yet!
  14. You and me both, Phil. Terrible results so far from all our guys. At least you have an excuse in having a pretty rough bye week-I was only missing 1 player! None of mine met prediction ( most less than half), and many had supposedly good match ups this week. Pretty humbling and scary to see just how bad my current bunch could be when I've been averaging 153 points so far. Hope they got it out of their system before the playoffs at least! I think I may have lost 2 RBs this week as well. 1 for sure for a bit. Only positive thing is it looks as though a few others are down in terms of average points this week as well, and nobody went on a tear. Pretty late in the season to risk a big rebuild now.
  15. I really hate it when I have a player(s) in the Thursday game and they come in way below what you expected ( reasonably close is fine ). I feel at a disadvantage then ( even though it could have happened Sunday/Monday or your opponent may have a dud too), and it makes me fret more than I should about my lineup until Sunday when at least it's too late to change most things.
  16. I remember the first year that I had to miss it (The Grinch would often follow it on CBC) due to a hockey practice and being really bummed about it since, as RJ said, there were no do-overs until the following year. I was 9 years old and I think that marked the date my childhood ended.
  17. OMG! I killed Kenne; mind you, he'll likely get another shot at me in the playoffs, but I feel rewarded as I stayed up until 2 am here just to see if my WR, Alan Hurns, would be active or not. Wow! Now I finally have some breathing room, and I've got Phil next on a tough bye week for him thankfully as he's starting to roll. If my guys can just perform as predicted, then it should be good enough. Sammy; you could've had Ian as he had the worst QB result I ever recall seeing: Payton at -5+ points: but Ian just keeps rolling along, and just how is anyone's guess -watch out! Was hoping Carole would upset Blues with her last 2 players, but the game, as a whole, was a dud. Final day for trades is Nov.27th, so keep that in mind. Some of you may want to gamble now since we are all in the playoffs.
  18. Looks like Carole is 'shaking' dem bones ' this week and purged a fair number of guys. Phil; I could've taken Josh Brown (K) before you did, but I'm gambling on Seattle's kicker this week as their offense stutters a lot and hopefully will need field goals. Your guy is predicted to be in a shootout, but I think that will be a TD game. Here's to wondering. I've got Kenne this week in the battle for first and again we are predicted close so I can't gamble too much. Even have taken Fitzgerald out for the first time as he apparently sucks in Seattle and will have Sherman on him all game. not a bad bye week, but a sucking matchup week for me. You and Carl are ranked neck and neck. Ian seems to be slipping by with wins and I sometimes wonder if he's still playing... ?!?
  19. Just a note to all: it appears, that likely because our league is small and I choose 3 playoff weeks, all teams will contend for the championship regardless of standings. There will not be a consolation grouping as in past seasons ( where we had 10+ teams) nor players just eliminated. Good news for everyone then, and a reason to keep building your team. At the mid-point, new cream is rising to the top so keep an eye out for players who will help or take a few risks even. Therefore, yes, no one is out of it, and, given certain planetary alignments and some stealthy moves, the 1-9 Smokin Doobs could win it all! I am fine with this format (I noticed it a few weeks ago, actually, just clicking around), however, if you, the league, feel and want to vote that this would or could be a poor way to potentially finish up, then I will remove a week from the playoffs. Majority would rule and all would have to take part. In that case, the bottom four will be out and given a consolation round (I think!). I'm posting this now to cut off possible complaints later by those who hadn't seen this earlier. BYW; Phil ; put Karlos Williams back on waivers please. I apparently was looking around at the same time as you, had him on my watch list, and when I went to pick him up after looking around a bit, you had already snagged him in a most ungentlemanly manner just a few minutes before...
  20. This is awesome -a cover of 'Drift Away' by the Stones circa '74 from their 'It's Only Rock and Roll' recordings. Enjoy!
  21. Wow, 70+ points for Drew Brees this week, Carl! Normally that would seal the deal against any opponent, but unfortunately you're facing Blues this week. Still, that has to be the most points for a single game that I have ever seen by a QB in all my years playing FF. Amazing -yet next week, who knows what he'll get. Eli with 56 is pretty sweet, and Carl has him ,too.
  22. Week 6 in the books, and Kenne remains undefeated - but has to thank his luck that Sammy didn't play Luck this week! Mostly close matches and Blues continues to throw out monster points with Ian now getting into the big point groove as well. It's going to be interesting now we are in the midst of byes to see if that flips the standings around a bit in the coming weeks. I've got an annoying one this week, and not too confident since I've relied on both Brady and Denver's Def. for the bulk of my points, but it's not too bad compared with Ian's week 7 which looks pretty nightmarish having 6 byes ...ouch! May want to gamble and leave a low scoring spot open, possibly. Good luck maneuvering through them, all ! Not a fan at all but, boy, do I want Big Ben back! It sucks having one of the best receivers in the NFL, and Vick and whoever else won't throw to him-but you can't bench him, also, just in case...
  23. One thing I'd like to see changed in Fantasy Football is that the IR spot be changed to an O(out)/IR/ SUSP(suspended) spot. It seems teams are loathe to put a player on injured reserve unless they are clearly not going to return for quite a while or, more often recently, out for the season. It would be more useful for players if players that were designated as 'out' be allowed on there to free up a bench spot and make it more useful overall. 'O' often means at least a week or two (or more) and is more similar to the DL in the briefer football season. IR, as it is being designated by teams, more likely is a player you'd often want to just cut and pick someone up instead. It seems rather pointless in many cases as is.
