    Rock Paper Fantasy Football

    http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

    Is anyone doing this again this year? I remember we had a mildly successful league going last time around, but it'd be great to have a few more people on it this time competing for FABULOUS PRIZES.

    Let me know if you're interested and i'll start a league.

    Also taking suggestions for the name of the league. Rock Paper Foot-to-Ball?

    note; may not include FABULOUS PRIZES

    I'd be interested, that sounds fun.

    I've created a team. The Rock Paper Rangers shall be champions.

    Never done the fantasy football thing before, but I know how it works. Sure, I'm in.

    I've already got a team in a couple of other leagues, so I'd be up for registering them in an RPS league too.
    I write about them video games at these locations

    And on Twitter

    Never played this one; played the guardian one many years ago (because I am frightfully middle class) and played the, I think it was, Telegraph one almost as many years ago with people from the office.

    Would be happy to join an RPS league-o-tron, and think your league name sounds ideal.

    I've got a team already, so if there's a league I shall join and try to actually pay attention beyond October for once.

    Think I'll start a team. I know I'll lose interest when the striker I keep on the bench scores a hat-trick.

    I've joined with my ever-so-cleverly-named team, Zombie Survivors. Now where did I get the inspiration for that name...

    I'm sure it'll blow your tiny minds to learn that I am the "Ian" in the league.

    I'm in with Shifty Waxers FC, I would have tried to come up with a witty name if I'd known I were joining an RPS league when I made them, but there you go.

    oh shit, REAL NAMES! I edited mine a bit, to protect the guilty.

    My team is called Tiny Soviet Heros - named after my Halfling team, and I expect they'll be about as successful

    I think you should change it to Ian Network Hub Hitman Warboss

    edit. Also. FOR GOD'S SAKES FOOTBALL. Four of my team are already injured or doubtful for the weekend.

    This also serves to let you know you can make INFINITE CHANGES until sometime on Friday.

    I think.

    I hope.

    Luckily, I picked sensibly. Bar the fact I may have only one striker on Saturday. Woops.

    Yeah. After reading the rules again, I think I'm going to have to re-pick most of my defenders. I like Kyle Naughton, but I don't expect Norwich to keep many clean sheets...

    Infinite changes until whatever time it says, then a free one per week, with a maximum of one carrying over to the next week if it goes unused.

    Didn't know who to spend my Hernandez money on while he gets fit at the end of the month. Got Berbatov. D:
