That's right, I've started a Fantasy football league for EU fans. 11 spots open. If you want to play, PM me your email address so I can email you the required invite. We're doing this the Star Wars way: The four divisions are Republic, CIS, Rebel Alliance, and Empire. My team name is the Orlando Kenobiwans. Hopefully you will use a cool Star Wars name too.

However does this work, OMB? I just heard about fantasy football leagues for the first time the other day. Sooo...it's all news to me! Sounds fun, though. Smile

Let me put it this way:

Once you start down the Fantasy Football Path, forever will it dominate your destiny...

Just kidding. Basically, Fantasy Football is a statistics game. You get to have a Live Draft (which you don't have to attend, it will just pick the best available player if you don't) and choose your team. The game is a point system based on what the players do in real life. Let's say Drew Brees (Go Saints Wink ) throws three touchdowns in week one of the real NFL Season. That will give your team, maybe 30 points, if touchdowns are 10 points apiece, for week one of the Fantasy Season. Meanwhile, you are matched up against another person and their team. After all real games are played, whoever ends up with the most points wins that week. You play for 14 weeks, against different teams, and the same point system each week. Then you get three weeks of playoffs, leading to a winner!

It may sound confusing, but it's really, really easy. In the simplest form, you just pick your team and then let them go each week, hoping to get more points. You can change your lineup around and stuff, but you don't have to. It can be very easy and simple. Or it can be hardcore. Depends on how much time you want to spend.

Okay, that's a little confusing, but it's starting to make sense. Sounds fun! I do believe I'll sign up. Hmm...will have to think of a name...

Well I've joined the league, and my team is the Mara Jade SkySaints! How original, I know. But I like it. Smile

Here is our team logo:



Very Happy
We duel the Kenobiwans first. I look forward to it.

We only have seven spots left! It is filling quick. We have myself, Mara, Swordofthejedi, Darth Caedus, and a person who isn't on the forums but follows us on Facebook. Let's fill those 7 spots!

By the way, that's an amazing logo! Laughing

Ha, I'm so glad ya'll like it! My sister and I were having soooo much fun putting that together. I used my ideas, and she used her GIMP skills, and there you have it. I love it to death. Now can't you just imagine Mara Jade as a star QB in the NFL? Very Happy

And welcome everybody else! Can't wait to get started playing. Smile

Oh allright. I'll be the Miami Mon Cals, unless the dolphins are already picked.

Here it is: Not exactly a logo, but a message to rival teams... Smile
Oh, by the way...Merry Miners isn't just some dumb cheesy name. Its the Iceborer Transport ship that Jaina piloted in Vector Prime! (I had to get a Jaina reference in there. My runner up names were the green bay power converters, the space jockeys, or the droids you aren't looking for. Or the Nerf Herders or the Twins (Jacen and Jaina. Smile Also, I made Jaina's jersey number 11...not just because of Daunte Culpepper but because she was Rogue Eleven!!!



Whoo hoo! Sorry the picture isn't bigger...paint shop had to merge the image. Sad

Treachery indeed is in the air. But awesome picture! It will strike fear into others' hearts. Wink

Oh, and I really like The Droids You Aren't Looking For...that's funny. Smile
