Default Veterans FFB?

I guess it's time to talk about a FFB league this year. Ohiobrewtus is willing to commish, and I'm willing to handle the money. I probably will NOT have time to play, though. There is too much going on in my life right now.

Any veterans want to claim their place again?

Me. Always looking forward to FFB here, need to get back to my winning ways again.

Yoops, I shot you the list of last year's participants.

I sent PMs to the rest of the participants from last year.

Some of the guys from the hbt fantasy baseball league wanted to do a league. How many slots do you have open?

We don't know yet. There's a second FFB league here, too, there may be some opening there. Imagine there's probably enough total interest around here to get three leagues going, if we wanted.

I don't know quite yet. We should have at least one. We're giving preference to the current players, and then we'll open it up to new players when we know. If you're interested, just post it here and we'll probably do a lottery or pick somebody who's been wanting in for a while. Last year we only added one or two, and they were guys who had been wanting to join for a while. I'll definitely let you know!

Add me to the list if you don't get enough response from the vets.

Thanks-

Chris

I'd like to be considered if there is room. I had to resort to kicking asses in the rejects league last year.

Anybody from the rejects league last year is first on the list this year to join the grown-ups!

Bozo, you're currently at the top of the list and we'll fill from the oldtimers and rejects first before adding anybody else. There are several people last year who ended up in the rejects league last year because we didn't have room for more players. My memory sucks, though, so they have to post here to speak of their interest.

I made a note of others wanting to join, so don't be shy if you want in! (Riverfront, I've noted that you'd like a spot if one is open to newcomers).

We'll have at least two openings, as I'm too busy to play and so is ollllllllllllo.

Last year we charged $25, and money was paid out to first, second, and third place.

The commish says we have room for one more. Priority will be given to the "Rejects League" veterans, and then to whomever posted here with interest.
