Podcast Episode 18 – 8.25.15 (The One With the ~Fantasy~ Draft)

Because there’s very little hockey news in late August, the Ladies decided it was high time for a Super Special Fantasy Hockey Podcast! They talk where to play, what types of leagues, and share the rules of Feminist Fantasy Hockey. Also, they have a ~fantasy~ draft live on the podcast, and you’ll never guess who their first round picks are.

We’re on iTunes, too! Please take a second to rate & review!

Supplemental Materials

First, here are the three rules for our Feminist Fantasy Hockey League.

  1. The idea is that this is a “safe space” for fans of any gender with varying levels of hockey knowledge. This means that sexist, transphobic or racist language will be subject to warning/expulsion, nor should anyone be shamed for asking a question about something they don’t understand.
  2. Players who commit crimes against women are undraftable. This year the list is Doughty, Varlamov, Voynov, Ribeiro, P.Kane
  3. If for any reason, you need to take a break from fantasy or the internet in general, don’t feel guilty. Our league is a rotisserie league (vs head to head), so if you have to leave for awhile, your absence will not affect anyone else’s experience, nor will you be forced to trade players.

If you want to start your own league, I strongly recommend the Yahoo platform, as it’s got a very detailed FAQ with it as well. TSN, Yahoo, THN, basically every site ever puts out lists of “best fantasy picks” so there are tons of resources for those who’ve never drafted before.

And nowwwwwwwwww for our ~Fantasy Rosters~. When I get the league set up, I’ll put out a call on twitter. Of course we encourage other people to do the same as you can only have 20 players in one league.
