  1. Wise words, my friend. Your honesty is appreciated. They don't really trash talk. I am just looking for a way to not make it not strictly about the payouts. FF is one of my hobbies and I was just looking for a way to get my other league mates to care about it a bit more. It is a win-win when for the players and league when everybody commits and buys in.
  2. Hello fellow commissioners! I have a 12-team family league and I’m looking for ways to make my league fun for everybody. I think smack talk is the key for my league. We don’t have a live in-person draft because we have people who live all over the country and world. So I am considering writing a weekly newsletter(thread) to make my league more engaging and fun for everybody. I’ve done a little research on this topic and found a few categories/awards to give out each week in the newsletter. The categories are listed below, but with my “working labels.” What has been your experience with emails or newsletters to help generate smack talk among league mates? Is this a good idea? Any suggestions or feedback would be helpful. Thanks. The Supreme Team (aka Highest Score) Skunk of the Week (aka Lowest Score) Dub Nation (aka Lowest Winning Score) - the owner who got the “W” or “Dub” while having the lowest winning score. Hustlin’ Backwards (aka Worst Roster Decision) - for owners who bench players who go on to have big games. Best waiver/FA pickup - I don’t have a name for this yet. I was thinking about calling this one MONEYBALL after the movie. The newsletter would go into a Yahoo thread and would be part of a weekly recap.
