Greetings,
3 Why do you want to be part of RW, what drew your interest?
At the suggestion of Kingdom City Growlers, I thought I'd jump into the new Redraft melee and see what RW is all about. I've heard great things and I am sure I know a few of the folks behind the team names.

1 Who are you? Where do you live?

My name is Pete, I've been playing/ commissioning FF for about 24 years now. Like much of you, the score keeping was done with newspaper and coffee on Monday mornings. Those were the days.

I live in the great Northwest and work for a grocery distributor. I have been married for 24 years and have a 20 year old son and a 16 year old daughter. My son plays FF in 2 leagues I run and I'm happy to say my daughter is joining one of my leagues this year (sharing a team with my wife). While she isn't a huge football fan, she has drafted for a couple of owners unable to make it to the draft and she has drafted rosters that have gone deep into the the playoffs, wining once. And her first word was 'touchdown'.  vote yes

I am originally from Spokane, moved to Albuquerque when I was 10, Green Bay when I was 12 and back to Spokane when I was 15. I bleed cheese now, and that has its stresses living in Seattle country, given the recent history between the 2 teams. (Week 2 in Lambeau- BRING IT ON!)  

I'm a graduate of Eastern Washington University (2010 National Champs-Wooooohooo!)  In fact a safety on that team is the son of the guy that got me hooked on fantasy football!

2 Tell us about your fantasy football experience, including the types of leagues you play in and where they are hosted
I used to be in leadership at Zealots until the babysitting got to be a bit too much.  frustrated  I played in multiple dynasty leagues there with different formats (Maximus, Guillotine for a couple examples of uniqueness)

I'm presently in 4-5 dynasty leagues, one redraft and a different format for the King-based league. I decided another redraft might be fun.

My local that I run is entering it's 21st year. Sadly there are only 2 of us original owners still playing but it's got a great group of people in it. BFL

I also run a dyno called The Great Axemen

I'm in a 36 team league as well as a couple other IDP dynos that are all held on MFL.

4 How much time in a typical week do you spend on your fantasy football hobby?
I'd have to say 6-10 hours per week now. Real life tossed some curve balls and I've backed down a little bit.

5 Talk about a favorite memory or crazy fantasy football related story
I recall one year in our local, my wife's late dad (not an experienced FF player) drafted Ryan Leaf with the first pick of the draft.
A few years later, another guy (also deceased) drafted LenDale White with the first pick.

6 What do you think members of your other leagues would say about you as an owner?
In dynos, I'm usually a crappy startup drafted but build it into playoff contention. My leaguemates have seen this.
In my local redraft, I'm generally always one of the final team standing. These leaguemates always respectfully give me a hard time.

7 Anything else you would like to add?
Andy has done some banners for me (BFL Memorial Banner as well as a few of the team banners) and will soon be working on the graphics for a Stephen King- themed league for me.



Cheers   cheers

Hi Pete. Thanks for introducing yourself and glad you decided to try it out here. With 24 years of marriage and 21 years running the same local league, you've proven yourself as the dedicated type! Hop in on any threads that interest you so we can get to know each other.

No kidding. haha

Maybe they'll be able to put their collective heads together and come up with a cool chant...

You know, something uniquely awesome like... Go... Pack... Go

Wonder how long it took to think that one up?

Don't knock it until you try it. It feels good to fist pump that with 80,000 of your closest friends as you are pumbling the other team.

Too bad we have to wait all the way to week 11.. I'm sure I'll find a way to stir the pot some before then though.... yikes

9-1-1 in favor of the Packers in the 2010's. Ouch.

Welcome to RW Pete! It's nice to get another person my age milling around this place. It sounds as though we are pretty similar in a family/marriage perspective although I am not a big fan of the Pack like almost everyone else round these parts these days. Look forward to getting to know you Sir.

Not quite sure his exact age but very similar references:

Married 24 years - I have been 23 years
20 year old son - I have one that's 21
16 year old daughter - I have two at 18 and 15

We are like brothers no?

Thanks again . Yeah, I'm an old fart. Took my daughter to the coast for a band I'd never heard of. Scrambled to find water near noon to take my pills. Almost fell down the stairs entering QFC due to my walker getting caught on the rug. lol3


Now who stole my Metemucil?

Yeah, decided to give them to a old friend who'd never seen him. I've seen Jackson Browne 3 times. I got beer out of the deal so it's all good. thumbsup

Yeah, he's awesome. Sounds like it was a great show. The Encore was Running on Empty. No surprise there. Figured The Pretender might be the finale, too. Both logical choices and great tunes.

Welcome aboard. I tend to be the other way around, solid at dynasty and shitty at redraft. I have a very hard time thinking about "now" and not the future, even when I know the future doesn't matter worth a dick in redraft.
