    post here if you're interested. Also let me know your preference on the following:
    • What site do you want to use? (i.e. ESPN, Yahoo!, etc.)
    • Do you want to do a buy-in, and if so, how much? ($20? $0? enough for winner to get TSO premier?)
    • Any preference on draft dates/times (earliest would be Aug. 31, latest would be Sept. 9)
    Once we have some of those covered, I'll go ahead and make the league.

    - right now, sounds like we're leaning towards using ESPN.

    - also guessing some people won't want to put down big bucks, but a couple to give the winner TSO premier might be a good idea (if we do this, we can use leaguesafe.com, it's the site I use for my main league to collect/disperse money).

    - for draft dates/times, i'm guessing probably not during labor day weekend since there's a better chance of people being busy then.

    also of note- if we decide to do money, leaguesafe charges 3% transaction fees (not much). On yahoo, they now have a thing called Private Cash Leagues (not sure if ESPN has something similar), which is free for transactions.

    I'm in, prefer ESPN but not a deal breaker if we go Yahoo.

    Tylt is a good option too for collecting money. It doesn't actually take any money from anyone till it reaches whatever amount you set it at. Then it holds the money until the league is over and a winner is announced.

    ASinghal31 so looking at it I see how it collects money... but then can it easily be sent to someone besides me?

    Yeah. We used it for another fantasy league last year. ESPN partnered with them last year for fantasy so it was used pretty extensively for this exact purpose.

    I'm cool with whatever, and I don't care which format we use (ESPN, CBS sports, Yahoo)

    I'm in. Preference is ESPN but not a deal-breaker for me; good with majority. September 4th - 8th would be best I think; or whenever the last preseason games are all played

    I'm in. Please use ESPN. All other sites suck balls. Haha. I'd be down to pitch in and buy the winner premier. Or a psn card. Anything during the week after 7pm for the draft. Just can't be august 29th or 30th. Already have drafts that night. The first weekend in September would work too.

    so here's an update on what i'm thinking:
    • ESPN
    • pitch in $1 so winner gets premier (psn card was a good idea if we wanted to do more)
    • Draft: I'm thinking TUE 9/8 (after labor day weekend, before thursday night opener)
    I'll create the league Tuesday night. Let me know if you have any other thoughts on the league.

    Alright, the league is up on ESPN (man, I gotta say I like Yahoo's setup way more tho after setting things up). Draft is currently set for TUE, Sept. 8 @ 9:30pm ET. And I think we'll do a $1 entry so that winner gets TSO Premier.

    Looks like I can't do ID & pw invite, so i'll need your emails. either post here, or pm it to me on tso or groupme.

    Check out the league settings and let me know if you prefer something else. I made it half a point per reception, brought down some of the negative numbers down a bit (not a fan of players losing points overall), and changed up defense to look more similar to yahoo's.
