Lets ride the wayback machine

Postby A C » Thu Feb 06, 2003 10:16 pm

Just wanted to start a different type of thread up here. Lets find out who on this forum has played Fantasy Football the longest.
Ill go 1st, and lets see if anyone can beat me ;-D

I started in 1987. The league I founded still is playing today.
I cant remember my whole roster, but I do recall portions of my 1st ever lineup :
Qb- Tommy Kramer, Min.
RB- Curt Warner, Sea.
RB- Robb Riddick, Buf.
WR- Anthony Carter
TE- Todd Christenson
K- One of the Zendejas brothers.

Hows that for a look back in time. Im suprised I recalled Riddick. If memory serves me correct he was a Zach Crockett type of RB.
Goal Line specialist. 8 yrds for a season, but 10 TDs..something like that :-)
Curt Warner...(yes thier was a guy by the same name b4the Rams Qb)..was a real solid fantasy player. Id compare him to a Curtis Martin today.
Kramer was near the end of his career, but was still probably a top 10 QB. Closest comparison would be a Brad Johnson maybe

Will be going on my 10th year in my original league,have since added other leagues to the mix.The original league was co-founded by a bunch of old school buddies.It has gone from 8 to 12 teams through the years with 7 of the original 8 still playing.I remember having Larry Centers on my team the year he caught 100 balls(we get a point per reception)amongst others like Thurman Thomas & Marcus Allen.

I started playing in the early 70s, though we did not call it fantasy football - we called it 'Boxscore Football', because we had to wait for the Monday paper, and got the stats from the 'boxscores'. It actually started with baseball, because I'm not sure the football ones were 'boxscores' but we didn't know any better. This was before the internet, so we didn't have access to all the information we have nowadays. We had six kids from the neighborhood - me and my older brother, and four other kids, and we would draft a team right before the season started. On Monday after school, we would all get together and go over the paper, and add up our points to see who won for the week.

I started internet FF, in 1990 with one America On-Line league, and I am now currently in about 10 internet leagues.

Well I started way back last year in 2002. Was always hearin' about it and it was like FF this and FF that, and finally I was like, damn it!!! I'm gonna try it. Well here I am. I took it all hook, line and sinker. I'm definitely hooked!! I had a decent team last year and finished 4th overall in my league. I had some over performers and some underperformers on my team. Which was

QB Favre, Bledsoe
RB Faulk, Bennett, Gordon, J. White
WR Price, Conway, Stallworth
TE Pollard, McMichael
K Vanderjagt
D Miami

There were 12 teams in the league and it was highly competitive. Looking forward to joining some more leagues, and improving.

Well I can't remember the year exactly, but I won my first league. From what I can remember I had:

Testaverde- When he had his 4,000+ yrd year with the Ravens
Bettis- With Rams
Anthony Johnson- Carolina
Rodney Hampton- NYG- He never got any respect
Michael Jackson- Ravens (not the molester)
Curtis Conway- Chicago

I think it was '96, but I cant remember any more of my players
