Yeah Mariota jumped the gun doing that earlier in the playoffs, couldn't stay in it though for the superb owl.

One thing I will say is that the rub of the green on officiating finally caught up with New England. Foles touchdown reception should have been brought back for both illegal formation and offside (they basically lined up on a slant.)

I'm also dubious about the call not to overturn Clement's touchdown reception, he was out of bounds when he caught the ball in my opinion; there's no way you can seriosly say he had any control of the ball when he had his first leg down, and then overstepped (just) after.

I'm also playing normal football in a draft league this year on Togga (in addition to other regular fantasy football). The draft was fun and making sure I'm paying attention when lineups come out each week could get ... interesting.

I've seen a lot of the League too.
Sorry to drag up an old post - looking at a new draft league for next year as the site I was using has become a bit too flaky.

Wondering how you would rate Togga?

I really like it, although it too can be a bit flaky.

Unfortunately, the dev team are running out of money to run the site and have been asking for donations to keep the site afloat for the remainder of the season.

Not sure if it'll be running next year.

Oh dear... Shame as it looks like they've done a really good job.

I think the official one launching might have hurt a lot of them.. but it's a much worse game with no trades.

The search continues

It's getting near the time to think NFL Fantasy League again. If anyone wants to chuck a team into the Roverstalk league, let me know ASAP so I can add you in.

No knowledge required frankly. It's just a load of fat lads wearing padding running into each other from different directions after all.

Looks like togga folded this summer - alongside unique11 and possibly others.

A shame, but I guess the official site entering the market was going to crowd out a few.

As I'm in Cologne unlikely that I'll be taking part, so crappy players for me again!

I also can’t make it tonight due to prior engagements, though in fairness I’m probably not gonna play this season. Just gonna enjoy the games more.
