Fantasy Football: Who wants in?

I've got some free time and football season is approaching too fast for me to ask for what people want.

Ok, I want 12 teams max (even amount teams if its less than that). Yahoo Plus league means I need $125/number of players (if all twelve, just under $11).

We will be using yahoo's java chatroom draft selector thingy to draft the players. That means we need to pick a day within the next two weeks to sit down for like 2 hours to draft our players.I've got some free time and football season is approaching too fast for me to ask for what people want.

This will be a keeper league, so if you want in, your in for several years (no quitting unless you find a replacement to run your team).

If there are more than 12 that want in, I'll give the players from last year the edge to be in the league first. Extra players can make their own league (and I'll even commissioner on that one if you want).

Ok... who wants aboard? You are agreeing to all the above.

I'm in. (1)

You might want to add that you are responsible for remembering your team roster from year to year.

Further, I can draft on the 28th-30th, 2nd, and 7th-9th.

I'm hoping between the end of the football year, and the beginning of the next I'll have my own setup so that I don't have to worry about remembering. That all depends on how fast I can pop unread.org out.

The Pittsburgh Yinzers are back! (1)

With a strong team defense!
And a healthy quarterback!
And a feature running back that will go down with a season-ending injury between the draft and Week 1!
Tickets are on sale now!

Pittsburgh Yinzers football! Don't miss a minute!

Spent the last little bit of petty cash in my house on some new fish (we have the coolest little 10gal tropical fish tank *evar*). Otherwise I'd be there. I had a lot of fun with the fantasy NASCAR last year.

ME ME ME ME ME... (1)

I already stated that I want in. Now I'm just repeating myself. Your Steelers (or whatever you call your team, Josh) are going down...

Oh, and another thing... (1)

If Sam wants in I'll pay his entry fee for this year. You got that, Sam?

Yeah, like just reading messages and shit isn't enough of a time suck, now you wanna add Fantasy Football to it!!!

I'll think about it. I like watching, I'm not sure how I'd do with the fantasy thing. We'll see. :)

Thanks for the offer. :)

After thinking about it, I think I'll decline. I just see it falling by the wayside as the season goes on, and I'd rather do it only if I'd be able to pay attention to the whole thing. Thanks for the offer, though! Maybe next year. And maybe then I won't have to have someone pay for it. :)

Still game (1)

What about previous keepers? Is Vick no longer mine?

Is this a ploy? I suddenly feel agents all about me...

Anyway, yes, I'm in. My nipples are ripe with excitement.
