    Exclamation Fantasy Football '12

    I feel like everyone who participated and managed their team last year should have a reserved place this year. I also thought Fourthisto was a good commish and I'd nominate him again unless he'd like someone else to take the reigns.

    I was thinking about this the other day. Totally in. Any rule changes to propose. I can't remember but was the league PPR? If not it should be.

    I don't care one way or another about PPR, but I definitely think our trade policy should be different this year. Since 90% of trades are fairly straightforward, the Commissioner should approve all trades and only in cases of suspected collusion or in a situation where the competitive balance of the league would be upset (i.e. a team that is already out of playoff contention trading with a top-tier team) should it be brought to a vote before the league. That way trades can be made later in the week and the players can be made available immediately (if approved.) Last year I traded Aaron Hernandez for Antonio Gates on a Wednesday afternoon and I wasn't even able to use Gates that weekend because I had to wait and see if anyone objected. That's nonsense.

    I think I was the one doing that trade with you too

    Also I propose that 6 teams make the playoffs for the final 3 weeks, not 4 for the final two. Top 2 seeds get byes on week 14.

    As soon as we get a roll call of all the knuckleheads we should try and decide on a draft date sooner rather than later. It seems like Yahoo gets more and more traffic every year and many of the prime evenings get booked pretty quick.

    Here's what I've seen so far.

    From Last Year's League
    Fourhisto – Confirmed for 2012
    TickleMeElmo – Confirmed for 2012
    LickTheLizzard – Confirmed for 2012
    Bobert – Confirmed for 2012
    Playadelwes – Confirmed for 2012
    ManImCool
    Faxman75
    MistaGlitch
    Buddy
    Vasoline Groove
    Cheddar's Cousin
    Snarf

    New Interest:
    Brematale111
    BlueDevil50

    If there is enough interest for two leagues, I wouldn't mind hosting a 2nd one with an Auction Draft.

    I'm shocked someone of your mental capacity can even understand fantasy football.

    Since Faxman didn't draft and didn't manage his team, I think his spot should be up for grabs. I nominate ThomThom.

    We could do either a second auction league or do a deluxe league on myfantasyleague.com. It would include 24 teams divided by two divisions, each with their own separate rosters but joint playoffs, as in top 4 teams from both divisions (total of 8) square off in weeks 14-16.

    I think two leagues would be better. I don't like the idea of possibly playing a team that has the same players as me.

    Also, Wes, should you decide to start a separate auction league, I would be in for that as well.

    Oh and I remember there was talk last year of increasing the buy in fees to $30, such that with a 12 man league that we had last year the winner (takes all) basically gets their Coachella ticket for free. I think the buy in last year was $10?

    I'm also for fourthisto to be the commish again, if he's willing.

    Sounds good to me. With that amount should second place at least get something? Like $30 - break even?

    I would play in this but I'm gonna give you hipsters a couple of years to study the names of players and the game a little more. I think it's cute that you guys try to play fantasy football, Especially Bobert.

    Some of us aren't hipsters. Some of us wear football jerseys when we fist pump in the Sahara.

    On a scale of Gabbert to Brady, how much are you dying to get into this league?
