EDIT: Updated with links!!!! I decided to divide people up into a pay league and a free one, since that's understandably a deciding factor for some. If you prefer one or the other let me know, I'll switch things up. As of right now though here's how I've got us divided (commissioners in bold italics):

Scarlet League ($20): MAVBuck, Sharks, BassDropper, Sauce Bauss, Groveport Heisman, Squirrel Master, RosenBuck, BLuke221, BRobbins LINK

Gray League (Free): MI.Buckeye, KB3RG, Sims_tOSU, D-Buck, RubixTube, PittBuckeye, ITWASME, Wilkins78, Buckguyfan1, TheAFBuckeye LINK

If more people sign up I'll start not 3, not 4, not 5...well you get the picture.

Leave any other suggestions/ideas in the thread.

 

EDIT2: BassDropper and Sin City Buckeye already have links up for other leagues as well.

I'd be interested in joining. I'm down for a bragging rights only or pay league though I probably wouldn't want to do more than 20-30 bucks if possible because I already have significant entry fees in other leagues. I can promise a full season's worth of participation.

Coming from a poor college kid, $20-30 is my range as well.

 Rosenbuck, Thanks for my league shoutout, but if push comes to shove and someone is left out & wants in the Scarlet league, you can give my spot to them. I am in 3 leagues as it is and not really interested playing for money, i spend enough on casinos & ballcards LOL. 

Thanks again.

Totally understandable. You know, you've got me thinking I should just reorganize this as pay league and non-pay league. Give me a few minutes....

Rosenbuck, thanks for joining my Silver Bullet Buckeyes league!! Like I said if someone wants in the Gray league (free) and is shut out, I can step aside & they can have my spot. No problem.

If anyone else that is not in a league and wants in a 10 team league, there are 7 spots left. Draft is Aug 31st at 7pm est/4pm pacific. To join, here is the link https://yho.com/nfl?l=415733&k=8483844a042ea3bb

I'm good for a free league or pay league. I prefer something being on the line though. Just let me know how to sign up.

How about the bottom half of the league has to change their avatars to M Mans logo for a month? Much more meaningful then 50$.

Any clue when the draft for these will be? I know Bass's is Sunday.

I've always been a proponent of a later draft, so mine will be closer to the start of the season.  ATM I have you in KB3RG's league though, and I need to make sure he's still willing to commish Gray League.

I'm in for $20, would like to see the draft close to the start of the season.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

So do we have a link to get in the league officially?

D-Buck's picture

Woo!  I'm pumped!

Please switch me to the pay league

All I do is win

rosenbuck's picture

Got ya, link's up!

rosenbuck's picture

I updated both this and the original with links to the two leagues I created.  I believe my email is available to you if you join one of the leagues, so send any further questions there once you're in!

D-Buck's picture

The local league that I run with my friends is already set up to draft at the same time :/  

Is there an autodraft or am I screwed?

You can set up autodraft and the time is negotiable!  If we can get the majority of the league behind it I'll change the time.

Sin City Buckeye's picture

Rosenbuck, just a reminder that our draft for the Silver Bullet Buckeyes league is Aug.31st at 7pm est/4pm pacific. Don't know what time your other league is drafting, so if it's the same day, you might want to allow time so you're not doing 2 at once. That can get hectic LOL

A couple hours later would be better for me. Setting up autodraft, is fine, though.

Pretty sure this draft is tonight, and I'm also pretty sure I joined the league, however I'm positive that I can't remember my Yahoo ID. If you can figure out which one is me, and kick me from the league I'll rejoin with a new ID. Otherwise idk what I can do.

TheAFBuckeye's picture

Any chance we are actually going to draft tonight? A bunch of people waiting around to draft but it looks like the Gray League got changed to an auto draft.  Nobody on the league message board seems to know what's going on... a couple people adjusted their schedules for it.

According to Yahoo Fantasy Twitter, they were having Technical difficulties with the 8pm/5pm - 830/530 drafts and are working through them and will set up drafts scheduled at that time for later when they are back up running. 

Fortunately for my Silver Bullet Buckeyes League, was able to draft at 7p/4p. The only thing is we cannot see our team in our MY TEAMS yet. Probabl due to the glitch, but they do show in the draft results.

Fantasy Football draft issues on Sunday, August 31

Around 4:30pm Pacific Time (7:30pm Eastern), we started receiving reports that some drafts were experiencing issues.

After looking into the issue, we discovered that drafts occurring at 5pm PT (8pm ET) and 5:15pm PT (8:15pm ET) were impacted.

Our engineers have fixed the issue, identified all drafts that were affected, and rescheduled those drafts for the 6:15pm PT (9:15pm ET) draft slot on Sunday, Aug. 31.

 Private leagues: If your commissioner has already rescheduled the draft, then please use your new time.

If you miss your 6:15pm PT (9:15pm ET) slot, you can reset the draft for another time.

We apologize for the inconvenience this caused you, and thank you for your patience.

Just a reminder to those who have joined the scarlet league to hit up the LeagueSafe site and submit your entry fee. Only 5 people have paid so far and the deadline was today.
