    Sign-up for the 2008 ClanRam Cup Fantasy Football Challenge!

    It's that time of year again.

    No, not the time when BigRedMan returns from his beach vacation after thoroughly tanning his legs.

    It's time for...

    The 2008 ClanRam Cup Fantasy Football Challenge

    The fight for the ClanRam Cup will commence once more!

    Last year, Bar-bq achieved legendary status by being the lone Clan member standing victorious at the end of the season, the ClanRam Cup proudly taking its place on his mantle. But a year later, it's time for another competition to see who can add their names to the list of champions!

    This year's official ClanRam Fantasy Football challenge will once again take play on Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football in head-to-head weekly match-ups. Two leagues - Blue and Gold - have been created, with the possibility of a third league should there be enough interest. Each league will be made up of ten teams. I am the commissioner of the Blue League, and for the second year running, RamFan_Til_I_Die will serve as commissioner of the Gold League.

    The leagues' live draft dates are as follows:

    Gold League - Saturday, August 30th - 8:00pm EDT / 5:00pm PDT
    Blue League - Sunday, August 31st - 3:30pm EDT / 12:30pm PDT

    We can try to change some of those times if necessary, but we offered one evening timeslot and one midday timeslot to try and accommodate everyone. If you cannot make either of those timeslots, keep in mind that you can pre-rank your players and have Yahoo autopick for you during the live draft.

    Keep in mind that your team must be made up of the following positions: 1 QB, 3 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF. You will have six available spots on your bench for alternate players as well.


    Here is the point system for both leagues:

    OFFENSE
    1 point per 25 passing yards
    4 points per passing touchdown
    -1 point per passing interception

    1 point per 10 rushing yards
    6 points per rushing touchdown

    1 point per 10 receiving yards
    6 points per receiving touchdown

    1 point per 10 kick/punt return yards
    6 points per kick/punt return touchdown

    3 points per field goal made
    2 points for a 2-Point Conversion
    1 point for a successful PAT


    DEFENSE
    1 point per sack
    2 points per interception
    2 points per fumble recovery
    6 points for a defensive touchdown
    2 points for a safety

    12 points for a defense that allows 0 points
    9 points for a defense that allows 1-6 points
    6 points for a defense that allows 7-13 points
    3 points for a defense that allows 14-20 points
    1 point for a defense that allows 21-27 points
    Some changes from last year to be aware of..

    -Return yards now count for the individual player, not the Team Defense of that player. Therefore, you're going to need to think about if and when you want to think about drafting a Devin Hester or a Dante Hall.

    -FF points for defenses have been raised slightly, so defenses that shut down their opposition on game day are now rewarded a bit more than they were in the past.

    -Defensive fumble recoveries are now rewarded with two points.


    Sign-Ups
    If you are interested in signing up for the ClanRam Fantasy Football Challenge, here's what you need to do.

    1) First, determine which league you'd like to be a part of. Generally this means figure out which live draft you'll be able to make. If you can make both, flip a coin. If you can't make either, do the same I guess. Either way, determine which league you want to join.

    2) Then, you'll need to send a private message (PM) to that league's commissioner to express your interest in joining the league. Again, I am the commissioner of the Blue League, and RamFan_Til_I_Die is commissioner of the Gold League. If necessary, a third league will be opened. We'll cross that bridge when we get there, though.

    3) Once we have your PM, we will respond by giving you the league ID# and the league password. You will then go to the Yahoo Fantasy Football Sign-Up page and click Join a League under the Football '08 heading.

    4) After that, you will see three options. One says "Accept an invitation to join a Custom League" with a blue button underneath that says "Join Custom." Click on that, and then enter the league ID# and password of the league you've petitioned to join.

    5) If you've entered the ID# and password correctly, you can then create your team and you'll be in the league.


    If you have any addition questions, please feel free to contact us. Otherwise, good luck!

    Everyone who has sent me a PM should have received the league ID# and password. I believe I've received interest from six people. Myself included, that leaves three slots open for the Blue League. So let's hurry and fill this sucker!
