It’s That Time Of Year Again: Join HB & HB’s 2013-2014 Fantasy Football League!

7 Aug

la_liga_logoAre you ready for some football? If so, join us in our Fantasy Football League!  To log in go to the link and enter the Group ID# (1997) and the Password (fz6oofy). There will be a small prize for the winner and no experience is necessary. There are new features this year and on our end, an important new rule. 

Last season’s winner Earl Grey, didn’t provide any email address or identifying info on the Yahoo account so I was unable to be in touch to give her/him their prize. At this point, anyone could write in saying they’re Earl Grey so unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to give anything out. 😦  So new rule: Please make sure that you either put an email address in your profile on Yahoo or if you want to keep that private, email me at the HB & HB Gmail account (address is here) with your team name or reply with your team name here in the comments and I’ll be able to see your email on our admin side. I’ll keep everything in a file so this doesn’t happen again.

There are €150 million to spend on players this season and you even get bench players that you can sub in.  There’s help as you learn the ropes and always remember to check the La Liga Injured/Suspended List on the Sites We Love links on the right of this page. I always forget and end up fielding a team of injured players).

I’ve already put together my team (Napoli’s Gonna Buy Me Too), but I can already see that I’m going to have to do some tinkering there to get it in better shape – but that’s half the fun!

Just 10 days till La Liga starts! Whoooooooooooo!

    I think I forgot about this half way through the season and ended up fielding injured players too! Hopefully I’ll do better this time around…

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 7, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

      I did the same thing! I tank every year. 😦

      Also, the reason you probably forgot is that I forgot to post each week’s results. I’ll try to be better this year.

    damn you, work, getting in the way of picking my team.

    How long will we be able to sign up for? I’m on holiday so I can’t sign up yet, but I’m definitely joining this year!

    I’ve never participated in any fantasy league before so here goes nothing! Is there a prize for the team finishing last? ‘Cause I likely have that all sown up!

  5. Laura Witrak August 7, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

    Just tried logging in for the first time. Too many people have logged in, which is awesome, but will have to wait 12 hours. 😦

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 7, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

      Really? Maybe the site went down for maintenance?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 16, 2013 at 9:20 pm #

      Hey Laura – Were you ever able to sign up for a team?

      • Laura Witrak August 17, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

        No, I wasn’t! 😦

        • headbandsandheartbreak August 17, 2013 at 6:10 pm #

          You need to first create the team (and name it) and then you can sign up for our league.

          I would clear your cache (click on Help in your browser, then search ‘cache’ and follow the instructions) to make sure you’re not loading an old version of the page then try again.

    Just call me “Anyone But Suarez” 😉

  7. Andrea August 7, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    I was JUST going to ask about fantasy football! I’m in 🙂

    And my lack of creativity at the moment has left me with my usual name – Andrea’s Hot Ballers!

  8. yvette August 7, 2013 at 10:43 pm #

    My team will be “Mis Chicos Majos”

  9. TxFran August 7, 2013 at 11:14 pm #

    Woohooo! Finally a fantasy football league I actually care to try. Just tried logging in too, and got the message that too many people tried to log in so the account is locked. I’ll try again tomorrow.

    I think I finished 4th last season, thus in Arsenal style, do I get a trophy for that? Anyways, signing up as my same handle.

    • cy (@meridiansour) August 12, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

      I lied about my team name, I spent a week trying to think of a team name that was either punny/had a food reference and so I am now “Pastel de Mata”. I know he’s not actually playing in la liga, but I thought it sounded better than “Eton’s Messi”.

      Also I goaded my twin/biggest Cris fanboy ever into signing up, his team’s name is Magic Sponge.

      • headbandsandheartbreak August 16, 2013 at 9:22 pm #

        Your team is still listed as meridiansour. Did you change it back? I don’t have a Pastel de Mata listed on our league.

  11. jellyace August 8, 2013 at 9:08 am #

    I shall be Laverne for the 3rd year running, or now that Laverne and Shirley are no longer with us, should I change it to Flotsam?

    I came in second after Earl Grey, so do I get the unclaimed prize?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 8, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

      Hmmm, perhaps we should give you that unclaimed prize….

      • jellyace August 8, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

        I was in first place early in the season and then October happened and there was a death in the family and a long planned vacation so I could not make team changes. Earl Grey took the lead and I had been chasing after him/her ever since. Almost caught up but not quite.

        BTW a word of warning, the list of players is not totally accurate. Some players are still on the list even though they have transferred to other leagues. So check the transfer lists as well. I made this mistake by starting out with Michu and he had transferred to Swansea but was still on the list.

  12. jellyace August 8, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    Maybe we should register our team names here in this comment section before the season starts?

  13. drea August 8, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    Excited for the new season! My Footlongs came in third, I think, last season. I don’t know about keeping the name, though. I only chose it because I wanted my imaginary team to have those hotdog mobiles for dugouts.

    • drea August 8, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

      Meh, kept the name… which, yeah ok, I chose for the other reason too. 😉 Who is Earl Grey, though? Earl and Laverne (hey jellyace) were on-point from game 1. Too bad they’ve wiped the old season, I should’ve taken notes.

    • jellyace August 8, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

      Ooooh! Those are gone aren’t they? I thought your team name was for very special players and their umm equipment like Bebe Varane.

      • drea August 8, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

        Weeelll, actually… but I swear the dugouts were half the reason. 😀 Anyhow, the addition of subs is throwing me off a bit. Wait, so you’re not Laverne anymore? My favorite other teams’ names are Panic at the Isco and Flotsam (aw, no Jetsam, the other eyebrow will be jealous).

        • jellyace August 8, 2013 at 11:27 pm #

          I love the name Panic at the Isco! Who is that? Take a bow!

          I shall be Flotsam this year. Someone else can be Jetsam, and we will probably be as uncoordinated as Ancelotti’s eyebrows!

          Yes, the bench subs are throwing me off. And even if the budget got bigger, all their prices went up as well. So balancing that budget just got tougher.

  14. Forlond August 11, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    Maaan, I completely forgot about the prize after season. Yes, Earl grey is actually me, should I send mail to you to iron out detail?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 11, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

      Sure – please do – You’ve been a long time commenter here so I totes trust you. 🙂

    • jellyace August 12, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

      Congratulations! You were a tough opponent! Well done!

  15. Mimi August 12, 2013 at 3:14 am #

    Since I’m going to win this, how about you make that gift a little bigger?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 12, 2013 at 10:36 am #

      Love it! The genial shit talking has begun. 😉 BRING IT!

      Since I pay for the prize out of my own pocket (we don’t make any $ off this blog), it’s gonna stay small. 🙂

      What’s your team name?

      • Mimi August 19, 2013 at 5:24 am #

        It doesn’t have to be about money!

        How about you break into Ramos’ house and after you are done doing what you have always dreamt of doing in there, leave with ANYTHING from his closet for me. Something like that?

        My team is Mabingwa United, Mabingwa is Kiswahili for Champions.

        • Laura Witrak August 19, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

          Lozil – steal one of his bedazzled hats, colored jeans OR his leather neck tie he wore a few years back. Good. Lord. This is scary that I know this about him!
