    I know in past years there were some Yahoo Fantasy Football setup:

    So that's one place.

    AffiliateCrew does a Yahoo Fantasy League and it gets pretty crazy on draft day. We yell from our offices when someone gets a great pick!

    I tried last year and could not get enough participants together. If someone else around here wants to run an ABW footbal league, I would love to join in.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Yahoo has one of the better free games out there. My brothers and I always get a league together and go head-to-head every year. I'm not as good at fantasy football as I am fantasy baseball (mostly, I'm the only one who keeps up with the baseball team for an entire season - after I crushed them for a couple of years straight, they won't play any more...), but I enjoy the one-on-one matchups a lot in fantasy football.

    I'd be done for a little ABW league action. I'm always looking for new ways to keep from doing what I'm supposed to...

    I would be down for something like this:

    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem

    I know it's not fantasy football but I know on the board last year, some people participated in picking winners each week -

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...&highlight=nfl

    And the Yahoo setup is real easy. We could setup an ABW group and you just login and make your picks and Yahoo will update and keep track of it all.

    I used to run football pools when I had a job, had lots of people in it, was in my first one at 10 It's actually what I wanted to be when I grew up at that age. A professional football forecaster. I'd be willing to put up those skills against anybody here.

    I have tried a few different sites. CBSsportsline, ESPN, and Yahoo. IMO by far Yahoo is the easiest to use and manage.

    Elbowcreek, if we are short of our 12 teams for the company league I will see if I can get you a slot. A word of warning, we have vicious trash talk especially the gals!

    I'm down Trust. Though Pickem' really isn't my forte. I enjoy it, but I don't necessarily have all the skillz. So if you want a guy to beat up on, count me in...

    When I ran the pool at the job I used to have, one girl won it twice (about 40+ playing) in one season by just picking the city/state she would rather visit.

    Miami Dolphins vs. NY Jets. If she would rather visit Miami than NY, she picked Miami. And some of the guys with skillz weren't too happy And I think somebody else who played picked them by which helmet she liked better.

    I used to play every year, got too busy. Still may be too busy but would try to actively participate if there are a dozen ABW'ers that want to do a league, I say lets go for it.

    (I got dibs on the team name knights )
