Happy July Geeks,

It's almost August so figured it's time to get the league started. First I want to give everyone in the league last year a chance to rejoin first then if there are spots open I will open it up to all the Geeks. Again this year we will all be putting up 5 cigars ($7+) and one really nice cigar ($12+). I'm requesting everyone send me the cigars again this year. Regular season winner gets the ($12) cigars. Winner of the playoffs gets everyone's 5 cigars and 2nd place of the playoffs gets the 5 cigars 1st place put up.

We will again try and do a Online Draft and Google Herf. Only takes about an hour.

Also try and log in to NFL.com and go to the league again.

In if you'll have me again!  If an active Geek wants in you're welcome to bump me, but I'll count on it for now.

I'm going to have to sit this out. I know of at least 4 weekends I'll be traveling and time will be limited.

However, if you end up short a spot I'll take it so you have a full group.

Need to check in with rman. Then we'll see where we are with players. Would like to do late in Aug or early Sept draft again if that works for most of everyone.

BewareDaPenguin

No response from Rman. So we can ride with 10 or try and get 2 to make 12. Thoughts?

My brother would play or not play, so that's cool. I think we should try to pick up 2 geeks if we can, if not then my bro would sit out and we can roll with 10. But we have a few weeks to see if anyone else would like to join!! It really has been a fun laid back/ but competitive league since I've joined!

So geeks if your on the fence step right up to the longest running fantasy football league on cigar geeks!! For you chance to win fabulous prizes!!! Do you have wait it takes to bring home the coveted trophy?! Well let's see if you have what it takes against 11 other cigar smoking, football fanatics!!! (That was my promo, how'd I do) :smoker: lol

Let's get 2 more geeks and make it a full league!!! :bigthumbs:

Ahhh ok...so he's in lol. We still need 2 more Geeks :biggrin: it's a fun league geeks! I'm not a salesmen, but league is always more fun with more people :smoker: would be great to fill the last 2 spots, but 10 will work as well. We"ve got a few weeks though so if you are on the fence, we'd love to have you!!!

Thanks, John!  Monday 9/5 works for me (my birthday, actually...so I assume you'll all go easy on me!).  

For scoring, did we include the following last year?

Kickoff and Punt Return Yards:1 point per 25 yards
Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns:6 points

It's pretty unusual to give points to individual players for return stuff (usually just TDs to the Defense and ST's), but I'm all for trying something new.  Just might change the research I do...

Yup we've always played this rule, it's why Tyreek Hill and Cordell Patterson had some real good value there a couple of years lol - there's still a few "dual threat guys" - one of the little things we do differently :smoker:

Sept 5th works for me as well John! Thanks again for keeping this going! And as for my real my real brother, this is fantasy football bro, 2nd place is the 1st Loser, put your game face on lol :biggrin:
