Been a fan myself since the Panthers' Superbowl run in 03/04. DeShaun Foster's brutal, but brilliant, 1 yard TD run against the Eagles in the NFC Championship game converted me for life I think!
Anyway I'm a big fan and thought if there was enough interest (about 10 people including myself), we could make a eurogamer fantasy league on nfl.com? Never done a fantasy draft (only ever done soccer ones) before but I think it'd be fun.
BIG, BIG fan of the NFL mate. Been so for the best part of 20 years now, and been a big fan of the Chicago Bears the whole time (Thanks for Julius Peppers btw )
Also played a bit of the sport when I was 18 also. I did the fantasy league on NFL.com back around 2000 when I had Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk and Issac Bruce on my team during ''The Greatest Show on Turf'' season. Needless to say I won my league back then so would be interested in a eurogamer fantasy league.
You can have Peppers. I love the guy, but he just didn't give a flying fuck in that last season with us and was more a hindrance than help.
I am setting up a league, and plan on making the draft live online (I've tried out a mock one and it's actually good fun). You only have to pick Offensive players, and then draft one team's defence (like I chose the Jets' in my little mock draft). I had to pick a time - is 11pm EDT (6pm GMT I think, I'll double check) this sunday alright for everyone participating to set aside about an hour to do the draft?
Yeah heard a lot about Peppers being ''lazy'', even though he still managed 11.5 sacks (I think) and he's the type of guy that offenses need to plan for, and can play both end positions. Really looking for him to help our D big time this year.
Anyway, I live in Australia now, and 6pm GMT is 3am here, so won't be able to participate in the draft
