PostSubject: Graveltown Gunslingers (Dave)   Sun Jul 03, 2016 10:20 pm

Greetings to all...on to the interrogation!

1 Who are you? Where do you live?

David Holton, living in Augusta, GA. I am moving to Savannah in the next 2 months.

2 Tell us about your fantasy football experience, including the types of leagues you play in and where they are hosted.

I have been playing for about 12 years, mostly ESPN leagues and MFL. I have dabbled in IDP leagues over the years, but they were very shallow. Most of my friends are recreational players, and are the type to by a magazine on the way to the draft. I am in a few money leagues, but you generally don't get the same camaraderie.

3 Why do you want to be part of Roster Wars...what drew your interest?
Last season I joined a league with  deeper roster requirements and full IDP. Now I am looking to get more involved with leagues with full IDP set up. I also am looking to join a super stable dynasty league.

4 How much time in a typical week do you spend on your fantasy football hobby?
I repair the interiors of cars for dealerships. So I end up driving around a lot and I have headphones while I work...so I listen to podcasts at least 20 hours a week. Combine that with 1-2 hours a night, depending on when my 11 and 10 year old kids go to bed, I try to stay on top of things.

5 Talk about a favorite memory or crazy fantasy football related story.

No hilariously funny memory, but - The first year we held our local live draft with our friends (12 years ago), there was no prize or money at stake. However, I did go on Ebay to buy the largest, most grotesque fake Super Bowl ring that I could find. When we met up for the live draft the following year, and I did an impromptu ring ceremony, I won't forget the looks on everyone's faces. They thought I was taking things a little too seriously.

6 What do you think members of your other leagues would say about you as an owner?
Besides being the world's worst speller (it is taking me an hour to get through the spell check for this post...and I am only doing it to make a good first impression...and will not do so once I am in), they will probably not know how to take my sense of humor.
It's kind of like a fungus.

See, I told you.

7 Anything else you would like to add?

I have been looking for dedicated group of owners for some time. It is difficult to find the right blend of good natured humor, and competitiveness. This looks like this could be the place.
I am not internet chat room savvy, and I have not been involved in forum posting much. (Not since I was heavy into Goal Line Blitz, if anyone has ever heard of that)
However, this site seems like that could change things.

8 Are you joining to be a friend of the league or do you you intend to start out as a prospect?
Prospect.
I find it funny that having a 'friend of the league' status is even possible. Again, it speaks to the type of community that is present here.

Welcome aboard, Drifter.  May you find a home here and settle in (that's my attempt at comedic pun work). grin I'm new here as well and am having a blast, and I don't even have a team in this league yet.  grin   This is a great group here.  So again, welcome.

Glad you joined us David! If you are looking for a "dedicated" group of owners there is no place that will impress you more than these people. This place is 24/7/365.

How did you find us?

Pull up a keyboard and read and post often! Andy (Eternals) will get you set up when he is around, maybe tomorrow with the holiday and all).

Welcome Dave!

Have you had time to read the entire set of bylaws yet?
If you have, what stuck out as your favorite and least favorite part?

It's all about the "BIO"...Did you read his?

Oh yeah, I read them BEFORE I signed up. I just thought it wise to go back and reread them.

As a whole, the word the comes to mind is "comprehensive". Which not a bad thing, it is crucial (as all of us know when a league dispute over the rules raises its ugly head midseason).

Easy to grasp, even for guys who may not have ton of experience playing FF.

The only thing that I could possibly refer to as my 'least favorite part', would be the intro.

It kind of reminds me of FF players that are all into the metrics and the numbers part of the game. They have their place, but not at the forefront.
Football is fueled with passion. It is obvious that this quality is to be found in abundance, throughout this site. However, maybe it should be a little more obvious in the Intro to the bylaws.
Not trying to criticize, just making an observation.
