    Weekly.

    I forget. How are the playing rosters set up for weekly? Do you only get to play 6 guys?

    That's cool.

    The only weekly league I've played in the past was a scrubs league. IIRC you could only play 6 in that one

    When you go to your match-up it says 'Dec 25-Jan 1'.

    Is there a setting in there somewhere that you can adjust to allow setting a roster for tomorrow?

    Positive Start for Squirrels despite Injuries, Drugs, Alcohol
    Denver,CO; The Denver Squirrels find themselves 1 game out of first place behind Ukrainian powerhouse BC Budivelnik after what can be considered "a positive start" for the franchise. The Squirrels 16-11-0 have been getting big contributions from reserves while the team’s franchise players have grossly underperformed.

    “Mutha(expletive)’n stars gots ta be mutha(expletive)’n stars ‘n sh(expletive)” pronounced Squirrels head coach Rufus Henry. Our big money cats be suckin’ sh(expletive)!” added the 3rd year coach. “Da German dude (Dirk Nowitski) can’t handle 'da life'!” exclaimed Henry.

    Nowitsky has been missing in action so far this season and many seem to think that the power forward is having a hard time adjusting to the Squirrels notoriously “fun loving” ways. Some insiders affiliated with the franchise who have asked not to be named have stated that Nowitski has had a tough time keeping up with the Squirrels regimen of basketball, recreational drugs and alcohol.

    “Dirk is a pro and he’ll come around” stated Squirrels GM BallDon’tLie. “Like anyone who comes into a new situation, there’s an adjustment period. He just needs to build up his tolerance for booze a little bit and he should be good”.

    Need a hand
    The Squirrels have also suffered immensely on the injury front as Manu Ginobili is out for until mid-February with an injured hand suffered in a bar-room brawl.

    “We pretty bummed about Manu” stated BallDon’tLie. “He was really tearing it up on the court but but the incident with Stephen (Jackson) was pretty unfortunate.

    Witnesses to the incident have reported that Ginobili was defending the honor of “an attractive female dwarf” who Jackson was involved in a verbal confrontation with. Ginobili went to break a bottle over Jackson’s head and missed; striking his hand on the swingman’s head instead. An eyewitness reported that “a gun was drawn” by Jackson but he was ushered out of the night club before being able to discharge his firearm at his teammate.

    Stephen Jackson has since left the team.

    “I hated to see Stephen go but I wish him well!” stated BallDon’tLie. Stephen is our type of guy and he’ll be missed around here".

    In addition to Ginobili, Kyle Lowry, Specer Hawes, Mike Conely, Pau Gasol and Andrea Bargnani have also missed time due to injuries/health related issues this season.

    Notes
    Medical Marijuana night has been rescheduled for Thursday, February 2nd. Fans donating at least 3 grams of medical grade cannabis will receive promotional Denver Squirrels beverage coozy (first 1200 fans). Collection tables will be set up throughout the Denver Coliseum concourse prior to the game.
