    It's about that time once again! I've already sent out invites to most of our returning owners, and 9 of you have already joined. Still waiting on Passion of the Slice and DC's Djokovices to renew. If none of them do by next Friday, then I will open it up to any new owners interested in joining.

    If you are interested and there is a spot available, then feel free to post your info and I'll send an invite. Or if you're a returning owner and you just want to talk smack, feel free to post that as well. :)

    My playoff slump will end this year! I guarantee!

    This is the 4th year and last year was great with the activity. Let's keep it up again this year.

    Tentative date for the Draft is Sunday Aug 31st at 9:30. If everyone joins sooner then we can have the draft even sooner than that. Let me know what works best for you timewise, usually Sunday is pretty open for everyone.

    Ha. JBF#1, think the slump might continue, ;) .
    After a great year, hopefully I won't have a late season choke again.

    Were you in last year? I sent invites out and only 2 spots left.

    Do we want to draft based on where we finished last year (I.e. champ picks first, r.u. second, etc.)?

    Let's go, I'm looking forward to trying to defend my title!

    I'm good with drafting however y'all want, I think we went by previous year finish last year, so I certainly wouldn't be opposed to that :grin:

    Last day for our returning owners to join. After that I will open it up. Feel free to post your email address for consideration for the last two spots.

    Any opinions on the waiver system this year?

    My own impression of the 'rolling list' last season was that it favored the teams already at the top, as they likely would only be putting in 1 or 2 waiver claims a week, so would be placed near the top of the list the following week, whereas the teams doing badly and in need of several pick-ups every week would almost always remain at the bottom of the list, so never had access to players that could help them recover.

    I'm happy to use whatever system other players want, but I'm of the opinion that you're more likely to get a competitive league where the owners stick around if the best waiver pick-ups are available to the worst team every week.

    The thing is in most cases one player isn't the difference for a bad team. I don't see why good teams shouldn't be able to add guys off waivers for bye weeks/injuries. I think the waiver wire worked well last year, for the most part its good that everyone gets a shot, and also adds strategy to waiver priorities.

    I am still looking for two more owners to fill our league. Draft will be Sunday August 31st at 9pm est.

    Just post your email address so I can send an invite. I can't send invites telepathically, Yahoo hasn't added that for this season.

    Mathew Stafford is on the trading block. I didn't really mean to pick him in the draft, so if you need a QB send me an offer.

    Aint no Curses, lets talk turkey. What do you want for Stafford or Rodgers? Romo and or Roethlisberger would be involved of course, but I'm also willing to part with Torrey Smith, Gio Bernard, Frank Gore, Decker, Golden Tate, or Trent Richardson in a 2 for 2 deal.

    Traded Brees, CJ2K and Fitzgerald for Ryan, DeMarco Murray and Carlos Hyde with Passion of the Slice.

    Not sure it's going to work out for me, especially bearing in mind it's a PPR league and I conducted no research whatsoever into schedules etc, but just decided my sanity can't handle another season with CJ2K's and Fitz's unpredictability.

    Old boys Steve Smith Snr and Reggie Wayne at WR for me (with Cobb).

    Well that's the worst trade I've ever seen. And why would he even want Big Ben? I'm sure locker or Palmer is on the wire...

    And I have no idea why passion would do that trade either...

    Perhaps it is time to launch an investigation, tampering,matchup fixing? Maybe JBF#1 is absolutely desperate to win this year after consecutive years of failure


    haha I'm just kidding.

    Two 2-0 teams (including mine :p), two 0-2 teams, everyone else 1-1. Love the parity.

    not quite sure about the winning part. I must congratulate you on your very solid team this year though haha. Getting 6-8 is the best draft spot possible.

    I would like to thank Andrew Luck, Antonio Brown, Justin Forsett and Mason Crosby for enabling me to finally finish #1 after 3 years. I'd also like to thank the waiver wire defense for saving me a couple times. Thank you Zach Ertz and co. for letting me have the worst points from TEs this season as well.

    Here's to winning it all after coming so close last year!

    You haven't finished first yet! Playoff time is what matters most.

    And I finally made it!

    True, the grind is just starting
    Congrats though, you seem to have the worst luck in the years I've been in the league. Remember DMC haha?

    Congratz to the Commissioner for finally rising from his perpetual mediocrity to put his hands on the title!

    The accusations of foul play may well persist long into the future, ring-led by that unsavoury character Dingle, but for now, in the absence of uncontrovertible evidence of corruption, we will congratulate you on your victory.

    Thanks for another fun season, guys. Hope we can get it going again next year.
