BDFFL League History

 

Introduction:

The BDFFL (Big Dog Football League) was developed in 1999 when Jeff and Shipman became discontent with other fantasy leagues that lacked web based standings and reporting. They jointly drew up the initial league rules and started from there. Of course, modifications have been made over the years with the help of all the owners. Since then, the league has expanded from 8 to 12 to 10 to 12 to 14 teams.  Twelve owners have resigned from the league (some multiple times). Sixteen teams have been added due to league expansion and team replacement.

Commissioner & Site Developer: Jeff Anderson
