    I got it- I simply got confused because of the first mail with a different date (0415) mentioned. Now I got the 2nd mail- see you guys at the draft!

    Linwood is graciously giving his spot in novice league to Warthog.

    Warthog, welcome aboard.

    Linwood, I'll punish your team in trial league since I failed miserably in hockeyleague.

    A big welcome to Warthog. I'm happy to see you in the league. :nod:

    On the other hand, I'm very sorry to see my buddy Linwood leave.:pout:

    Oh, you'll see enough of me in trial league.. :gun1:

    I just thought that it would be nice to let someone else play too. I'm already going to dominate two leagues, I don't need to dominate 3.

    Plus, it will give the Warthog something to do when he isn't polishing his corvette. :)

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the live draft....For those of you who did auto-draft...it looks like your teams did well.
    Please have your lineups set by tip-off time.

    IF YOU FAIL TO SET YOUR LINE-UPS IN THE FIRST WEEK YOU WILL BE CONSIDERED MIA. PM me to tell me why your line-ups were not set (i.e. didn't want to play a certain player or was on a trip in Africa).

    The league requires you to participate for it to be fun for everyone so if I see deadbeats, I will give your team to someone else.

    Yeah. And another thing. Now that we rollin'.

    When you wrote in your own cyberblood as a binding contract to your fellow GMs "I promise not to quit" this is what you REALLY meant.

    1. You swore to set your lineups:reading: before game time. Daily, weekly however you do it. Just do it.
    2. You swore to replace season-ending injured players:crutch: instead of playing them.
    3. You swore to read :ranger: and/or post :typing: in the Novice League Threads (Novice League News and Novice League Banter) during the Fantasy Basketball Season.

    If all of us Novice GM's do these 3 things, our league will be both fun and fair. :cheerlie-GOAL:
    Participation. Participation. Participation. :grouphug:

    I noticed that it's quite difficult to put your players in the line-up (for instance, if ALL of your centers play and also too many others so that you can't put them in the "Util" status)- but it's going to work.
    Please excuse me if there are any mistakes with my line-ups (I didn't add Kwame Brown yesterday because he's injured anyway), I blame it on my rookie status :)

    Don't worry Ralphi. People are going to make mistakes. Nobody cares about that.

    Aurora is referring to people who give up. Hopefully, we don't need to deal with it this year, but my understanding is that Slippy is going to use the molasses treatment on them. I.E. a very short leash and low tolerance for sandbaggers.

    IMPORTANT!!!

    I have contacted yahoo support to replace the manager of Awesomeness...I hope with Linwood.

    The current manager had not had any league activity since Sept 21.
    the user MCRrox has not made a post since sept 12 with a post count of 2.

    The change should be completed in a few days.

    Thanks

    Linwood? Wouldn't the team do better WITHOUT a manager? Oh, same difference.:pound:

    OK, I have no room to talk. :redface:

    the bad part is i might lose to awesomeness next week - he has a pretty good team there, and his players have a lot more games than i do next week
