Yes, the time has come... lock up yo women and children (to quote a semi-famous You Tube "sensation") Cause it's back... and bigger than ever!

Owners from last year's "pro" league should have an invitation in their e-mail to rejoin for the 2012 season. Once again 10 bucks for the season. You will have until August 19th to claim your team, after that date your franchise, and all of it's glory will be opened up for anyone else to claim.

New this year in the pro league... keepers! Yes, you will be able to keep one player from last year's roster. Look for a detailed note in the coming days on the league page once you sign up, but you will have until August 26th to decide who, if anyone, you wish to keep.

We will be doing a live draft again this year. I tentatively have it set for a Sunday morning brunch affair this year. Sept 2nd. Namely because the commish's days off changed to Sunday/Monday. I think I am going to host an event most likely in the Maple Grove area for the draft, so keep an eye out for that, as it is lots of fun if you are in the same room during the draft. (Laptop or other flash enabled computing device will be required to participate in the live draft)

Otherwise get ready to strap it on boys and girls... no lockout to worry about this year, so just some good ol fashioned smack talk!

Also, I am about 90% sure I will also host the free league again this year, first come first served, up to 20 teams, however you will need to sign up early as we have to have an even number of teams, and if you are the last "odd" team to sign up you risk being dropped if we can't get even numbers. That league will use an auto-draft feature, so if you are curious about all this insanity but don't know much about it, this is a good league to hone your smack talking skills! Look for info on that league here in the next few days once I get a little more time to get it set up!

I am in for either league. Pay if you have a spot or the other if not.

The free league that MNMizzou refers to isn't the picks league, is it?

The picks league wouldn't have a draft, nor should it matter how many teams participate I would think.

I'm interested in the picks league again this year if it's on Yahoo. I already play one picks league there with family, and Yahoo allows one to import their picks from another league they're playing to another, so I only have to do the work of making the picks once/week.

I am already signed up for the paid league. The picks league will have 20 spots again this year. It is a free league and I don't want to miss it since I've played the past couple years and really enjoyed it and no, there is no draft for the picks league.

I will set up both the weekly picks league as well as the 20 team fantasy league that is free with the auto draft. I've just gotten behind a little this week, but look for them soon! With the auto draft that league shouldn't need too much lead time to get together.

I got this message:

There was a problem

There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. If you were invited to take over an existing team, please click the link in the email you received to join the league. To create a brand new team, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)

Is the league full or did I do something wrong?

Was not you, was a quirk with Yahoo that I didn't catch, should be all resolved and ready for more players!

ATTENTION: We have ONE open slot in the "pro" (pay) league. Dues are 10 dollars and you will inherit the franchise from last year. You may keep one player from that roster prior to the draft (Sept. 2nd) To join send me a private message on here with an email address to send you the invitation link to. First come first served, you will have 24 hours after the invite is sent to join or I will move down to the next person in the order they are received. Good luck and prepare for copious amounts of hazing!

Yahoo does an auto pick for any one not at the event or online It even usually is smarter than most of us(expert wanta bees) Also auto pick is default so you have to opt out of it to go live . very easy so sign up and have fun
