    Or post here in this thread, if you're new to Toonzone's Fantasy Football and would like to join and/or you have questions. 8 years huh? I know I've been a part of it for...5 years now, I think.

    I certainly interested in playing again, if we have enough Toonzone members up for it.

    I think I've been with them since we started, and I plan on returning. I don't necessarily enjoy it as much when people aren't from TZ though since they don't get to enjoy the banter we occassionally have here or even respond, even though it is all in good fun.

    I would rather have anyone here on Toonzone that wants in to get a spot over someone who's not a member of our forums (that joined in years past because we were a person or two short for our league). So speak up, anyone here, if you're interested in joining...

    Yes, I'm in. My goal was simply to make sure this is a Toonzone league first and foremost. Beyond that, I was hoping to spice things up, and make this a little more "Fun and Games" for our Toonzone members.

    I mean, for instance, I notice that most of the names of our teams have nothing to do with animation/cartoons. Though I got to looking: "The Quohog Griffins", is that a new team? That's more along the lines of what I was thinking we could do. I'm just looking for ways to put a twist on this, yes, I know just playing Fantasy Football is enough for some people, but thought it would be cool to rename all real life NFL players and rename them with a cartoon counterpart (that way you could have Matthew Stafford/Peter Griffin vs. Peyton Manning/Optimus Prime). Not sure how best to implement it, but I'd get a kick out of it. But maybe that's just me.

    To be truthful, the way I came up with my name was based off the old Western stagecoach adductions that Looney Tunes showed. Since they are called Desperados, I went ahead and used that. And what famous ringleader isn't associated as the head of his clan? Hence "Dan's Desperados" came to fruition. So it is actually animation based.

    Yeah, my team, the "Springfield Marvels" were named after Marvel Comics superheroes, which have had many animated shows over the years. Maybe it would've been more clear if we had images attached to our teams that correspond to what we were talking about. I didn't know how to upload an image and just went with a picture of a football helmet for my team, if I recall right.

    I dunno, I just envisioned something where one team represents "Transformers" and another team represents "Looney Tunes" (etc, etc) and we're battling it out to see which is the best animation franchise. A continuation of the Toonzone "Battle of the Brackets" which we did earlier this year. :)

    Granted, I like "Fantasy Football" in and of itself, was just thinking of ways to spice it up...

    Is it too late to request the time be 9 pm EST, instead of 8 pm? Or on a different day?

    I'll take that as a "No, it can't be pushed back". Oh well, I may be a few minutes late, but I'll be there. I think the first couple rounds are for Keepers anywhere...

    Now, to decide which Quarterback to keep - Matt Ryan or Jay Cutler...

    EDIT: Hey, I noticed you scheduled this right around the time of the Hall of Fame game tonight! Football's back, baby!!!
