One of the best ways to get your sports fix in the off season it the Fantasy Premier League. We have had a league there for a long time. This year I’ve set it up. The league code is 261888-723047.
Since there is no rolling lockout, the time zone issue is not much of an issue. Late outs maybe, but I sleep through those. The lockout for the first week is 19:00 10 August English time. That’s 14:00 10 August for me and Oh-Dark-Thirty 11 August in Australia. I think. On the 11th, I mean, I’m sure about the middle of the night thing.
There is more helpful stuff online than I can possibly replicate so I will just point out that “Fantasy Football Scout” is the best known site, while “Who Got the Assist” is my favorite, with lots of useful numbers and strategy.
(I actually like the fantasy BBL better than the FPL, but the BBL is too short and far away! I can’t wait that long.)
I have thoughts about posting about FPL and our league in place of Cow Talk over the off season, but don’t hold me to that! If I do, the useful content to random crap ratio is likely to be lower than when I write about SuperCoach. If that’s possible.
I cancelled the draft league do to lack of interest. Maybe next year when we have more people who have played before, and more notice!
See you all there & here!
