Bump. Still looking for a couple guys and a couple guys for the waiting list. We all know how new leagues go.. you always get a few guys who drop out at the last minute. If you're on the waiting list, you'll get in almost for sure.
Trust me guys and girls.. this league will be the best league you've ever been in. It's in depth, it's a lot of fun, and best of all.. it's simple! Don't let the CBA (a couple posts up) scare you... it really is easy.
Anyway, PM me for details. Below is the league link, check it out
1 spot left and the draft begins tomorrow. Someone dropped out so you'd be drafting 14th overall. You can chose your own team name. PM me here if you're interested and click the link to check out the forums. Brand new league, fantasy draft begins tomorrow. Build your own team!
Yep you heard it right. Scott told me he's done with the league and decided to delete the site. I can't say I'm even mad tho I waisted alot of time in the league for nothing. But now I feel we have enough good gm to start a new league. Dave told me that after easter he'll send a pm to all the gm that he want to keep. In he new league will be 3 mod me,PLK Dave and Byrns. This new league will be more just since all trade will need to be accepted by us the mod. So if we feel one gm is making bad deals over and over and we keep denying those deals. After one Horrendus deal your out or after 3 denied your out. We want fair deals or at worst a small win for the other. We want a healthy league. So now I hope everyone is with us with this new league !!
This time Rap won't be in the league. It's not we don't want him or don't like him. We just feel he doesn't have the time for this league and for that reason we will start a new league with out him.
thanks for letting us waste our time... and then he ignores my PM's.
he could have at least given over admin rights to someone interested in running it instead of flipping the communal bird.
I so agree with you but I'm happy that league is done and we can start a new one. Rap team got soo much better and destroy every team he dealt with. Now we start this fresh. Are you with me and the others?
