Just looking around, and it seems to me that we have the only MLS fantasy draft league around. I thought about reaching out to ESPN to have them maybe host one, but I don't think I want to do it. Seems like a lot of people want to play a draft league and it has MUCH more marketing potential than a salary cap league. Anyone good with website design? Want to develop an actual draft league platform for MLS? Probably could get 5,000-10,000 players on it and some advertising money initially.

i like the idea but have no web design experience (or time for such a venture). i could maybe help write rules and provide the legal disclaimers, but otherwise i would be of little value to the team. i highly doubt ESPN is interested as they seem to be investing less and less in their own fantasy games (while accepting more and more money from the daily fantasy providers). i think ESPN also just hates MLS and will never support it like it should.

Can't say I disagree about ESPN. They're getting frustrating.
There's definitely money to be made (maybe not a lot I don't
know) in a draft keague MLS game, just not sure how to get it

On the website front, I've got some basic html down, but that's about it. Really think the demand's there? I do dig this format, but it would be great if we could axe the mini-drafts and transfers and work off a waiver/FA system instead. Hmm...let me think on this. If nothing else, we might be able to do a beta next year on a Wordpress site.
