With free agency frenzy cooling down and the upcoming season rapidly approaching, it is with great honour that we formally announce the much anticipated 2011 edition of the NFL Down Under Fantasy league.
This year will be our second year of the league and we are hoping to make it the biggest & most interesting league in Australia!
To do that we need prizes right?
I hear you brother and that's why this years leagues winner will win their very own NFL replica jersey of their choosing to the value of $100 AUD!
We are still working on some other prizes which will be announced soon but I reckon a free jersey is a good reward for getting to play Fantasy Football!
Due to the size requirements of a fantasy league (this year we will trial a 16 team league) we can only accept a limited amount of people into the league (13 to be exact see below for more info).
If you are interested in joining the league simply:
- Leave a comment in the comments section below or on our Facebook page status update with your Fantasy team name and why you think you will win this years NFL Down Under Fantasy League
The funniest & most creative entries will be selected & invited to join the league!
Be default our 2010 winner Paul Brown will automatically be invited to join myself & the sites editor Dom into the League.
