Since it's beginning to look like there may be football this year, I've renewed the league. Others who want to join in, go to http://football.fant...orts.yahoo.com/ It is league 138343, password safety.

Last year with odd number we did it on points. Want to repeat or go for head to head if we get an even number. How about the possiblity of live draft?

Currently at 6 teams, plenty of room.

So I've set us at H2H and live draft currently scheduled for Sat. 9/3 at 2:30 Pacific time. That's a holiday weekend so we may want to adjust that. First NFL game should be Thurs. 9/8. I looked at midweek evening, but nothing is available between 3 and 8 pm pdt. It's all changeable, so let me know how that works for you either here or at the league message board.

I've also made a change in how waivers work. Rather than by a priority list (last drafting team starts off at priority 1 and after each WW claim you go to the end of the line), each team gets $100 for WW picks. You put in your bid if you want to grab someone on waivers. Top bid gets the player (priority list breaks ties).

Also, how do you feel about picking individual def. players rather than a def team? (E.g., 2 DL, 2 LB, 2DB)

Bumping this, we need another player (or 3 or 5) to have an even number of teams. Sign up now.

Wait -- he came across a problem.

""There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. To join, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)"

What do you want to do, Darrel?

I've increased the league size. I'll finalize the teams when we get to 12. I couldn't find the missing team to delete.

For the record, my 2-0 start is totally incompatible with my usual FF style. I'll try to lose some games soon.

I've re-upped the league. Invites should be on their way to last year's managers. League number this year is 119325. Password is still safety.

I haven't changed the max teams from 12, but can if we need to in order to fit in more teams. Or we can see if anyone from last year isn't interested in it this year and then look to fill the slots.

Looking over the settings, I don't see a lot to change, but I'm open to suggestions. The one thing I would bring up is the possibility of individual defensive players as opposed to team defenses. That would entail some changes to def. stats as well, like including tackles and getting rid of points against.

6 of last year's teams have shown up. If you were there and haven't signed up for this year, please do so we'll know what recruitment room we have. Or if you're not going to play this year, let us know so we can find new players.

Also, for those who have signed up for the A&F League -- if you want to be in another league, I've got a Flannery O'Connor-inspired league (similar format to A&F) called "The Violent Bear It Away." Msg me and I'll give you the login.
