    The first game is tomorrow, Thursday night at 8 or 9 PM EDT.

    I still can not access my team. I checked the FOX Fantasy Forums and they posted last night at 6:21 PM that the site currently unavailable and will be back online within hours.

    Mikey, I guess the thought of a Bulldog and Green Raider going at it scared them. :D

    About 1 PM EDT I got in and was able to adjust me roster.

    The site was brutally slow, however. I guess it is all the traffic with everybody trying to get their teams set up at the same time.

    Go to www.nfl.com and look at the schedules.. That will show you when all the weeks games are. Then all you have to worry about is what player you have on each team :)

    And How!! :curse: :curse:
    I managed one player exchange, but since then all I get are timed out errors. :curse: So far I'm not impressed with Fox Fantasy Football. I don't remember having this much trouble with the setup we had last year. Hopefully it will get better. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I think you're right sds. I tried to pick up some players this afternoon but always got "timed out". I waited till this evening to try again. 1st b**ch, the player I tried to pick up was gone. :mad: Tried to pick up a different player and guess what, it "timed out" on me again and again. :mad: I've got six D/STs but do you think I can drop any of them for a WR or a RB that I don't have enough of? NOT! :curse: :curse: If you want to change a player by 10 min before the game you better start the night before.
    Sorry Mikey, I know you put a lot of work into setting this up, but in my book FFF gets a big F.

    Now they are saying - that it should be running right today.. there were server probs the last 2 days :(
    If you guys want to start over, we could go here:

    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1

    but we would have to re-register & start all over again..... :( :(

    I had a situation similar to this a couple years ago when ESPN rolled out their fantasy site. We are experiencing growing pains for sites like this. They probably didnt expect the onslaught of interrest (not to mention that sheer hammering the servers take the closer it gets to gametime).

    Hey Mikey, I didn't mean to dump all over you. I know that it's not your fault. :oops: Just frustration spouting off. :rolleyes:
    As far as going to the other site, it might be more hassel going through the draft again and all the rest than it's worth. If they have the servers working now, this site might work out. There are aspects of it I like although there were some features the old site had that would be nice to have. However I'll go along with what everybody else wants to do. It IS just a game after all.

    And I thought the Blue Route public meetings were ugly! Yikes!

    Of course I wanted to check the results of last night's game at 7:45 AM today and I cannot access my team and I get the the sorry we are down screen.

    Mikey,
    What would it take to move and how quickly could we do it? And since the first game has been played can we?
