The Channel 4 News League Seeks One More Team.

And that participant could be YOU! Right, right….no one cares about your fantasy league, S2N. Still, bear with me.

The gents of the Channel 4 News Team decided to go for a fantasy football league for trash talk and bragging rights this year. I started the sucker up in Yahoo, and we decided to invite some of our favorite bloggers. Thing is, we’re one slot short of a full 12 teams at this point (some have not gotten back to us on the invites, etc.), and OMDQ had the bright idea to open this up. Here’s the deal:

  • 12 teams total, six make the playoffs.
  • Positions are QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, TE, 1 W/T slot, 1 W/R slot, kicker, and defense.
  • Seven bench slots.
  • Draft is Sept. 2nd (Sunday), at 5 PM Eastern/2 PM Pacific.
  • Ghost managers who abandon their team for several weeks will be mocked viciously in the recaps I think I’ll be writing.

These would be your formidable opponents:

If you’d like to throw down, send an email to, telling us why you should join us. Note your blog in the e-mail; hell, feel free to link to something awesome you’ve written. Hilarity, sarcasm, taunting, threats of ass-kicking, etc. are encouraged. Deadline is Friday, August 24th at midnight, Pacific time.

(If said email is something along the lines of “YOU RIPPED OFF KSK’S IDEA!!!”, then save your fingers a few keystrokes, unless you happen to write for Kissing Suzy Kolber, and then I’ll acknowledge it as imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.)

  1. […] The Channel Four News Team is looking for a Fantasy Football partner! […]

  2. I’m not sure if I should join. having an NFL fantasy team might conflict with my established rooting interests.

    Having said, that, I would go for it if the league were to raise the stakes: for example, if the winner isn’t already on the news team, he/she becomes the Channel Four “weatherman”. Whatever that means.

  3. Soon we’ll have a food correspondent and a movie reviewer, too.

  4. A Pudge Is A Sandwich didn’t make your cut?

  5. As everyone uniformly asks “What the hell is Flyers Fieldhouse?”

  6. email sent! although i did feel really nerdy sending an email “applying” to be in a fantasy football league.

  7. GoldfishCowboy – indignation is always good. Seriously, we just casually tossed around a ton of names, and we were bound to forget a bunch of people we read. Happens.

    Twins – hell, I feel nerdy, elitist, and all sorts of other things even doing this.

  8. indignation? screw you guys…

    oh and thanks for the dump

  9. You’re going home?

  10. I’m already depressed we only have one spot left. Is there some reason we can’t have a 30-team league, just like the real NFL?

  11. Is there a trophy?

  12. Winner announced tomorrow, TGC. Sorry for the delay.
