True Colors

As I think every FFLibrarian regular might notice, I've played around with the colors and layout on the blog. After hearing a few comments from all of you, I decided that perhaps the dark background and light text just wasn't doing it for most of you. So I thought I'd play around with the colors (sorry for those of you who have been on the site this morning and seen several iterations of the new background) and I'd like to get some feedback from you all - if you have feelings on this extremely important topic, either leave me a comment or respond this week in the poll to the left side.

Onto football...

  • Rotoworld takes a look at whether or not you might be headed to a FF championship if you draft Randy Moss in the first round in Rating Randy.
  • A bunch of you have asked for resources on auction style drafts - Football Jabber does a great job of putting together articles on tips, strategies and suggestions for auction drafting. The best link on here though might be Fantasy Auctioneer's mock auction drafts - great for both the auction rookie as well as the seasoned auction pro.
  • For the past 10 days or so, the FF Goat has been posting offensive line analysis, which I'm just eating up with a spoon. So far we have the AFC East, AFC West and AFC South. Stay tuned to the Goat for more quality o-line material.
  • FF Starters has a top 10 IDP listing (with brief commentary) for linebackers, defensive backs and defensive linemen. As always, I just wish these lists were a little longer for those of us who need more than just the top 10 in each position.
  • Worried about the Edge or Fred Taylor due to their ancient age status in the RB world? Take a look at Sports Grumblings' Fantasy Forecast: Age Old Issues that looks at the question, how old is too old? You might be surprised...

Love the new look!

The color is fine, but I don't like how the articles are offset to the right.

Besides that, all is well.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks hazean and anon - I tried to narrow the left sidebar a bit so that the articles aren't offset so much to the right. Hope it looks better!

I love the new look FFL! Not so dark and dreary like the library basement....more like the smiling front desk.

Thanks for the linkage!

I am curious...Have you ever thought about what the greatest fantasy football team of any year would be?

I wonder, from the past 20 years or so, if you took the top fantasy scorer from each position and put them on one team, what year would have the greatest team? Would a line up of Marino and Rice score more than a Line up of Manning and LT, or maybe even Garcia and M Faulk?

I like the new look better too. Didn't think so at first, but now I do.

Very sharp. Love it. Seems like everyone in the FF blogosphere is updating their look. TJI will do the same July 4...don't forget about us. (We'll be sure to update your URL in our blogroll. We aren't "rich" enough yet to be able to afford our own dot com address!)
