So I would like to start playing HBD but want to read more about it first. However I don't see a FAQs page so I was wondering if there was anything ever posted or something that would give me a lot of basic info on the game. Thanks

Find a mentor or two to help bounce questions off of too.

Also for a good read there is a long term post with the topic something like WKRP in Cincinnati, where an owner takes over a poor team and rebuilds it.  It's good for thought process and some of the how's and why's of doing things.  But absolutely get a mentor, and run every trade, or roster move past them.  To many people take on a team for the first time, get ripped apart on trades with experienced owners that look good on paper, and lose interest.  We just had a person give up in one of the leagues I'm in only a week into the season.  Its a fair amount of time commitment prior to season start, and around the draft.  But there are a lot of good owners who will be happy to mentor you.  Good luck.

tecwrg is a great mentor for anyone. I've had him since I started 4 seasons ago. He knows what is going on

tecwrg's very good.  If you don't mind a little acerbic wit, MikeT is also very knowledgeable, but I can't speak for eithers ability to give you time.  If worse came to worse they would likely direct you to another long term owner who belongs to the mentor group.
