    Jammer, Bill, Woody, Super, Roscoe (I think) & myself have already gone on record saying we'll be in.

    I like your ideas in your previous post.



    Super: You've only pissed off a third of the league. I've pissed off HALF!!! :pound:

    I've sent RedLine an email to ask him to weigh in on this. He has been in both of the previous leagues, so if he'd like to, we should save him a spot too.

    These leagues tend to be deeper (which we already discussed), but I think you certainly don't want more than 10 teams.

    So this is what we've got so far:

    1. Jammer
    2. Bill
    3. Woody
    4. Superstarov
    5. Roscoe
    6. Darth
    7. Mik

    I know it is kind of early, but I want to make sure that we have enough prep time and not scrambling around at the latter stages. This way we have enough time to discuss exactly how we will set it all up.

    I added RedLine, because he'll more than likely play, and he's a good manager. But it may take him a few days to weigh in.

    Good idea.

    I'm pretty sure if you track down bezeach he will be up to defend his championship. I'm sure my friend from outside the league (or another friend) will join too, but maybe we should try to fill it up from within the forum first.

    Well, that'd make 10.

    With bezeach and one of your friends.

    If someone has been excluded we can work it out.

    I think we should try to get all of the details finalized by at least this Friday. There are barely 6 months left before the season starts.

    Laugh all you want, Bill, but you know how things go if you put them on the backburner. It will sit there until it burns a hole in your arse because the season is about to begin and nothing has been decided.

    He's just kidding Mikhail. It's early, but part of the problem last time was that we didn't have time to really think it through. This is a good idea.

    Absolutely agree. We'd definitely have to have a fresh draft for a keeper league. Bill alone lost out on several of the best players in the league this season that he'd never have dropped had it been a keeper league. Drafting for keeps is an entirely different animal altogether (IMO anyway, since I've never been in one before).

    I just got off the phone with Guinness World Records, we've officially set a new record for the earliest call for participants in a fantasy sports league!:pound::pound::pound:

    Careful there Darth. For a minute there you almost made it seem like you actually had real life friends.:stirthepot:

    I agree. We're cutting it a bit close. I mean, we're already half way through the first round of the playoffs of the season before our fantasy season starts! :lol:

    Redline confirmed that he is in, and down with a keeper league.

    Yea, keeper league sounds like a lot of fun. I'm down with that, too. :)
