All right gang, we’ve got our 10 man league set.

This years prize will not be monetary but it will have an unheralded value to guys like us. Your ante to get in is a medium flat rate box of cut offs. One winner takes all.

Here’s a quick link to the league homepage:
http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/480008

Here’s the list of the official participants: (LJ handle, Squad Name)

Mr.Fid – Off in the Shower
Carguy – Carguy460

BentheViking – FightEvryCooperNHere

I would be a definte maybe. If you need one to round out the league, I would do it. If you have too many, I can be out. I kinda like the money leagues, even though I never win it. lol

Count me in! I’m participating in 2 other leagues and running my own this year, so we’ll see how flustered I get.

Yea im with ya Shane. I like money leagues. Im on a tear in baseball right now and im making a late season charge for the money. 3.5 games back.

Im gonna create the league and edit the post so I can save a draft slot on the server.

I think you should be in. Jus sayin.

Here’s a thought: Be cool if the winner got a lumber from all participants. Fill a medium rate box …. one winner takes all. Cost ya about $15 to ship it out. Fill it with off cuts.

Imagine the glory of 8-10 flat rates hitting your doorstep.

Dude Stef thats a great idea, I like the medium rate box idea!

I have actually never done a fantasy league, for a couple reasons – (1) I’m too afraid I will get way into it and start doing multiple leagues each season and then my wife will get annoyed with me (especially when NBA and NFL overlap, I was every Blazer game religiously), (2) I worry I won’t be able to keep up my roster because I am so damn busy.

Whatever I’m in, since its my first time doesn’t that mean I will probably win? Lol.

Seahawks baby!

Link coming your way 7footah.

Best thing is that you can link your squad to your phone and set your lineup in the can. Its only once a week you need to set it and for all you rookies out there remember you can never have too many kickers, defenses, or tight ends.

I’m in. Sometimes I have a hard time making live drafts. But we’ll see.

Should we use our LJ screen names as team names? I could see that getting confusing.

I didn’t use my SN Red – I went with my stand by … The Ickey Shuffle. At your discretion on the team name.

I’m wanting a spot. I hope you girls don’t mind being DOMINATED.

I kinda suck at FF, and have really considered time and effort dedicated to fandom to be a gross misallocation of resources, (perhaps I came to this after spending thousands attending Jaguars games?) but I do like a bit of smack talk.

Is it required that members own a television? I have been off the tube for over three years, and I find it excruciating when I’m exposed. I will watch some sporting events over the intardnets from time to time.

Team name: Midget Warriors
