    NFL Training camp is going to be in full swing now which means the NFL season is right around the corner. This thread is to gauge interest and set up a draft date for the league which starts on September 7th. That's the second Thursday in September so drafting the week before would probably be my preference. We'll be playing on ESPN which requires an account and an email. Both are free and easy to make.

    Newbies will be welcome to and encouraged to join! This is really fun and its a blast rooting for your players. Just going to copy this next part from Finch's post 2 years ago.

    1. STAY ACTIVE, EVEN IF YOUR TEAM SUCKS. I can't stress this enough. Again, if you've played before, then you how annoying it is if people forget about the league and stop caring. If you go inactive, you will not get to play next year.
    2. There are no rewards, as of now at least.
    3. Taken directly from Waterbomb on smogon because he says it best: No gimmicks. Being a beginner is acceptable. Asking for advice occasionally and in private is acceptable. Being completely dependent on everyone else without doing your own research is not. Most major Fantasy hosting websites have written tutorials on how to play, and I suggest you check them out if you've never done this before.

    The league starts on September 7th and runs through New Years EVE day so be prepared to be active for those 3 months. It's really only about 15 minutes a week commitment (it can get a lot longer if you do research) so its really not that much.

    MEOWMIX AND JINORA ARE MY BEAUTIFUL COHOSTS

    Post "in" if you want to play!

    I'd prefer closer to the start of the season as injuries happen in preseason. I don't think everyone here has access to the PO discord either so you can just post your preferences here or PM me if you prefer. The earliest I'd really want to do it is the 26th.

    I likely won't be able to do a draft on the 27th depending the time, I already have one set up for that date since about last week. I'm pending to join one more (so i can be in 3 leagues like usual), but til then only date I'd rather avoid is the 27th for now. If the 3rd one goes through and there is a conflict of interest I'll let ya'll know.
