Invites have been auto generated.  You all should have gotten them.  I'll post updates as to who is in and out, but consider when we want to hold our live draft. I'll also be changing the official name from 2017 to 2018 in the next day or so.

Two months away!!!!  Too long....

No invite either, and the Yahoo Fantasy page only has options to remind the big boss or drop the league. I call fail, both for the invites and your team this year, Matt.

Oh good, I'd just assumed I was being excluded as retribution for winning it all last season. #joking

Seriously, thanks for setting this up again Matt, looking forward to it!

Oops!  I got an email from Yahoo that our league had auto-renewed, but I guess that just meant that I needed to make it active in order for Yahoo to send out emails to y'all.

In any event, that's done.  Emails have been sent out. Check your FF page, start some mock drafts, prioritize your players.  

Judging by the response in this thread, we have five of twelve who are in. If you're reading this and don't want to participate this season, please let me know ASAP so I can recruit another team.  

As for the live draft, I'm looking at Sunday, September 2.  Time TBD.  The Sunday of Labor Day weekend worked well last year.  As the season proper kicks off Thurs. Sept. 6, it's after preseason and four days before opening day.  For those who participated last year, it was less than an hour and a ton of fun.  Let me know if the day works for you and what time you'd prefer.  

I'll update this thread after more of you have joined and/or replied!

My life has meaning again! Matt, 9/2 is good. Afternoon or evening, whatever works for everyone else.

I'm in. September 2 should be fine as well. After dominating the consolation bracket last year, The Macho Men are ready to dominate the title bracket this year!

Iíll check with the Boss on that date, but itís probably fine. Being a holiday weekend means no sports for the kids, usually the biggest roadblock for us.  And, my wife and son both chimed in on every single pick we all made last year, it was a ton of fun. We wonít want to miss it.

Looks like we have 8 of 12 so far:
  • Brian Miller
  • Rich Marzullo
  • Ryan Maxwell
  • John Leach
  • John Popa
  • Brad Brickley
  • Bill Roberge
  • Me
Those outstanding:
  • Marc Foxx
  • Joe Booster
  • Dave Pruitt
  • Steven Myers
If you four are in, let me know here!  I can contact everyone via Yahoo, but that has been iffy at best considering some have Yahoo set as spam.  If anyone here has a way to get in touch with the four, drop them a line and let them know to respond.

For now, I've set our live draft for Sunday, September 2 at 11 AM PST.  I can change the date and time if there's enough push back.

Remember if you can't live draft, it's incredibly important to rank your players the way you would hope to draft if you could participate.  You don't want to leave it up to Yahoo algorithms to decide the fate of your team!

As soon as we have all 12 teams locked in, I'll randomly generate the draft order like I did last season and post those results ASAP.

No one has taken Maxwell to task for his utter trash talking bullshit just 17 posts into this year's thread, so I will.  Bring it, Eh's?!  I mean, seriously. What team has a question mark in their name?  And what team hoping for a championship would ever consider "eh" as a suitable moniker?

Bunch a' Bayside losers.  

California afterthoughts.

Bunch of SF posers who can't stand Oakland in the NFL but magically make the Warriors "their" team because SF can't field their own pro team. 

Good start, I think.  Got more.  Saving it!  ;)

HA!  Thanks.  Great to have someone in reserve should Joe or Steven decide not to participate.  Since I don't have a way to contact you, just keep checking this thread.  I'll let you know!
