    Last year we saw our first Advanced League champion crowned, #1Pistonfan. In a league filled with high caliber competition but devoid of trash talk, we witnessed a slugfest of the minds for the ages. This year will be no different. Actually that’s not true...

    Expect some new blood, heated trash talk and many surprises along the way!

    Time for the big boys to come out and strut their stuff. The best basketball GM minds on PistonsForum.Com will get together to determine who is indeed the next Joey D. of fantasy basketball. Are you up for the task? If you fit the profile of a fantasy basketball GM who goes to sleep thinking about stats, purchases the NBA League Pass channel just to scout players, and finds themselves hypnotized by Yahoo Stat Tracker into the deep hours of the night... you need to join this league.

    This is a league of no excuses. No mulligans. No mercy!

    Please respond to this thread if you are interested in putting your skills to the test. We will try to keep the league limited to 12 teams.

    Like the Novice league, we will again be utilizing Yahoo as our fantasy basketball provider, however this year we will be adding a trial league to our list of options for Fantasy buffs.

    In an effort to experiment with different Fantasy Basketball formats, we will also be opening up a NBA.com league to all of our members. This will be open to advanced and novice players alike. (Yes, participants of the Novice or Advanced league are still eligible to participate in the Trial league) The amount of spots will be limited so please respond to this thread quickly if you want to be part of the pilot team. More details to follow.


    *** Those interested in either (or both) leagues will need to send me (PM) a valid email address to receive an invitation.

    Well its about darn time. Those Novices have been up a running for a while now! :P

    I'm in for both the advanced league and the trial league.

    This year, I'm coming out guns a blazin' (hazen) and #1 Pistonfan is now public enemy #1!

    I wouldn't worry about that too much Jammer, my friend. Yahoo hasn't even set up registration for the new season yet.

    Besides, you know that those novice dudes tend to be a little over anxious and they typically need a head start just to keep up with the big boys. :eyebrows:

    Stay tuned for updates. I will be posting the info for the Live Draft the moment Yahoo or CBS (trial) gets the ball rolliing. Time for me to get in GM-Battle-Mode!

    You got that right. I need a LLLLLOOOOOOONG lead time to get balls rolling on my projects. I only ask that you advanced leaguers KEEP UP with the smack talk. I know I have Darth MegaMouth so you will be playing 'ketchup' in the banter department but we want to see ya'll share the fun of your leagues.

    p.s.
    warthog, himat, max, webz. It would be cool to have you in the novice league again but you could try to get in to the adv. league. Please let motown or me know which one you want to get into.

    I'll take a stab at it again. There wasn't to much smack in the advanced league unlike the 100 pages of constant blabble from the novice league.
    But it was fun and unless some newbies signup won't it be 2 advanced leagues? We can't have the Darth sandbagging it in the novice league,winning the ship graduated him didn't it?

    Count me in. Hopefully I won't have my starting Center and SG/SF go down with lengthy injuries this season.

    Count me in for Advanced league again. I finished 7th last year in the second tier as I missed participating in the live draft and only had Kobe as my marquee player and struggled all season in the rebounding and blocks department.:playball:

    I am also going to play in the Novice League too so keep me abreast of the events for the advanced so that I don't miss the draft this time.

    FD is back and ready to pick up where he left off last year, as he terrified the opposition for the second half, and came a couple of threes short of winning it all.

    Turning on the hurt....

    Mo, you shooting for 10 or 12 in the ADV league?

    Yep folks, Roscoe is going to bring his growing fantasy powers to the ADV league, I plan to where that champions badge all next year, so get ready to give it up #1!

    How many in the NBA league?

    I'll sign up for that. I'm basically accepting I will be single forever between work, the forum, fantasy sports, NFL/NHL/NBA.

    lol @ your single life! :)

    I'll have to bring you to one of my poetry nights. You won't have any problem finding a Mrs. PistonsForum.Com there. Beautiful women come by the multitude. :)

    Back to league business....

    Yeah, I'm looking at 10-12 for the Advanced League. I like to play it by ear. Unlike many other GMs, I don't shy away from larger sized leagues as they are easily adjustable based on roster size. Its the smaller leagues that bother me.

    As it pertains to the NBA league, I still have a bit of research to do before I unveil the details but it is probably safe to say that we will be looking at the 10-12 team range as well depending on interest. Should be lots of fun! Stay tuned.

    Re: Advanced League News '06-07

    I think we need a master signup thread, or one for each league. Just a suggestion. I did this last year, and it's hard tracking folks who are in and out and where they go.

    I PM'd a couple folks, DaviaGRap plays fantasy sports, maybe he wants in.

    I will give up my belt to NO ONE!

    Can we shoot for 12 teams? Or if we can only get 10 - make the rosters a little bigger? :stirthepot:

    I was thinking the same thing. A dedicated trial league thread would be prudent.
