Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

You can find all the details here:  Daily Kos FFB League (Fantasy Football H2H Draft 08/30/13): An Invitation

It's modified version of this year's Yahoo standard head to head league.  There are few quirks to it - including some slightly different scoring settings and a few unique roster combinations.

This is our fifth year - and although I've never won it, it's still very competitive, and a lot of fun!!

The best part is it's absolutely free!!  All you need is a Yahoo ID and a competitive spirit.

More details below the fold - or you can just go right here to join:



You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The live draft is scheduled for Friday, August 30th, at 10:00 pm Eastern (that will be 7:00 pm for anyone on the West Coast - everyone else can do their own time conversions).  A Yahoo fantasy football draft usually lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

As I stated above the fold you can go here:  


to join.

We currently have two spots left - but I've opened the league up to the public - so if you're interested you might want to jump on it quickly.

Here are a few more details:

 1. It's a head to head points league (H2H) (that means you compete against one other manager each week - and collect points (and fractions of points depending on statistics in several different categories).  The team with the most points gets a Win, the loser gets a Loss (L). (There is the possibility of a tie - but I've never seen that happen in a league with fractional points.)  The teams with the four best records make the playoffs.

  2. Here is the entire breakdown of the roster positions:  QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, W/T, W/R, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN.  (W/T means either WR or TE.  W/R means either WR or RB).

  3. The scoring setting are not standard, so you might want to check the settings if you decide to join.  (You can find them here:  Daily Kos FFB League Scoring and Settings  ) Hopefully you can see the page to which that link directs you.

There are quite a few changes from the Yahoo defaults.  The biggest changes are that passing touchdowns are still at 6 points (Yahoo switched it to 4 points a few years back), and there are bonus awards for yardage goals for passing, rushing, and receiving.  Also the league awards points for return yardage.

  4. Trades are subject to approval/disapproval by the commissioner.

Ok, that's it.  If you're interested, you're welcome to join.  The league is limited to 10 managers - so once that limit has been reached we'll be out of space.  Thanks for your time, and to those who are interested, I hope you join and have fun!!

And the link to join, one final time:  


Hope to see you there!!
