The Newbie Welcome Thread

Recommended Posts

Starting to see a lot of new faces around here already, just wondering who, what, when, where & why you are. Somebody does this sort of thing every season, figured I'd jump the gun. First word of warning, never take ANYTHING seriously here. Any Vets wanna put theirs in they are more than welcome as well.

 

Example:

Who: rajncajn, your friendly neighborhood Saints fan

What: Program Analyst by day, SuperHuddler by night. Saints fan always & forever.

When: 31 yrs of age. Although Blitz thinks I'm around 50 or so.

Where: Hail from the Missippi Gulf Coast.

Why: Cuz I'm a fanatic, just like everyone else here.

Fantasy Bio: Been playing FF for 7 yrs, been a Huddler for 6. Been on the boards for 5. Didn't take me long to figure out this is the best **** FF site on the net. I'm in 4 leagues now (this is beginning to read like an AA meeting) 1 local 12 team keeper and 3 BOTH (Born Of The Huddle) leagues, one a 16 team dynasty another a 32 team modified redraft, and last but definately least, a 12 team survivor league.

Fantasy Bio:

 

Playing in my local since the early 90's, been to the big dance twice, winning it once. I'm the commissioner. It started out a basic 1 player keeper league and has evolved to a full performance and full redraft league. Draft is live and one of the high lights of my year. I am the commissioner of this league.

 

One of the charter members of BOTH league F-OFF. I won the championship the first year and I won it again last year. This league is an optional 2 player keeper performance league. I am also the commissioner of this league.

 

One of the charter members of BOTH league CORE. I have made the play offs 2 out of the 3 years (winning my division once maybe twice) but have failed to make it to the dance, always losing in the first round angry This league is a full dynasty - salary cap - auction style league. Lots of fun. I have assisted the commissioner in this league on occassion.
