Nope, no league openings this season. Maybe next year.

I don't get the appeal of it... is it trash talking about fantasy football selections, just the picks, or both?

...and at the renumeration values, why should someone part with 25 bucks for such a low level of return in the case that they win through the field?

The gist of fantasy football - each participant (us) drafts a team of players from a professional sports league (in this case the NFL). Those players will earn points each week based on how well they perform in the NFL contests that they play in.

That makes watching even boring or horrible NFL games more enjoyable, since you are constantly rooting for your players to do good and earn you points.

Each week we then select the makeup of the players of our team (who starts and earns points for our team and who is benched and doesn't earn any points) based on various considerations such as injury status, who they play against and other factors. With those selected players we have head to head games against each other in our fantasy league based on a schedule.

The team of assembled players who get the most points each week wins the contest against the weekly opponent and then we move on to another opponent the following week.

At the end of the season in December/January, the top teams with the most weekly wins advance to the championship round to determine our league champion and the bottom teams get sent to the "Tard Bowl" to determine the best of the worst. This season for the first time even the best bottom tier tard bowl team can win some cash (so Torch/JS has a chance).

The prize money has gotten bigger and more varied over the years but I maintain that it is still a secondary consideration of why people join our league. For many years our league had no fee or prize.

The main reason why the same people join year after year is the weekly trash talking, camaraderie, familiarity with each other and bragging rights among us, with the most popular US sport of the NFL as the backdrop.

American Gridiron and European Football... even rugby... are so mindnumbingly boring to watch. Watching sports in general is boring.

I'd rather read a book, listen to music, or watch a movie.
