    You fellas/ladies know the drill.

    Ironically, Yahoo has a keeper option this year. Go figure. lol.

    So who is interested in battling this year?

    Count me in. I enjoy the challenge. My teams seem to dominate early and then take on injuries and fall just short of the championship in the Advance League. Hopefully this year will be different.

    Tater is in the house and ready to add basketball 2008 (or is it 09?) to the trophy case! :)

    I am willing to smack tater's conservative team with my collection of injury prone stars.

    • Custom Draft Order

      Take full control of your live online draft. Choose a snaking or non-snaking draft order. Allow owners to trade draft picks. Let teams pick more than once per round. Set your league's draft order based on your own custom keeper rules. I'm curious to see how trading picks works. We will explore this option. ~MP
    • Pop-up Player Notes

      Save time by scanning the latest news and updates for each of your players right on your roster page. Sounds helpful! :) ~MP

      Leverage the wisdom of other team owners by comparing your roster and available players to the overall percentage of players started and owned across all Yahoo! fantasy leagues. Sounds helpful! :) ~MP
    • Maximum Player Moves per Week

      Reduce player churn by capping the total number of player acquisitions allowed per team each week in your head-to-Head league. We will set this to 5 Moves to prevent player stacking. ~MP
    • Improved Navigation

      Redesigned game navigation lets you quickly find essential game features. Drop-down tabs let you jump to the pages you use most often from anywhere in the game. It's about time! ~ MP

    Linwood, I think when you sober up you will realize you are posting in the wrong place. This isn't the Scrub owner league thread, you know...

    Also, what's with the "eh"? Do you think you're a Cannuckian or sumthin?
    Put down the bottle already before someone gets hurt.

    Yeah, I've got two banners but 5 ships...


    Roscoe (old buddy old pal),

    How about you remove one banner from me and leave me with one that says sumthin generic like
    "PF Fantasy champ" or "league champ". Then the type above can say 5 time winner (or something). That prevents the clutter problem and everyone who has at least one ship can have a banner like that and it would perpetually change like the Piston's street name.

    We are proud of those ships. How about letting us show them off?






















    (Oh, and you're a big lame jerk if you won't do this for your forum pals)

    It's funny Warty, I know I earned my rep, but I actually do better in weekly leagues where I can't "Tater". It's never really helped me. In fact, it's hurt my shooting percentages. It only helps for stuff like Faceoffs won in hockey.

    I think guys like Bezeach and Lambs are actually good at "Tatering".

    Anyhow, good to see you in the league.

    Kimmee...Det...jump in.

    Mo, I might not join this league and run a novice league if there is demand for one. Let me know if that is ok.

    Great idea. As much as I'd enjoy kicking your butt all over town in the Advanced league, it's definitely more important that we don't lose our Novice league. I know some people have already expressed interest. Plus you are the perfect guy to be Commissioner. You have loads of experience but your teams always suck so you won't be able to take advantage of the people who are trying this for the first or second time. :pound::stirthepot::gun1:

    This just goes to prove that if you talk long enough, something useful will come out of your mouth, Darthy.:sssh:

    Very true Slipster. I wouldn't expect a repeat performance anytime soon though.
