    Yeah Linwood, are you the commish? If so, you will need to be more helpful. Ask Jammer for some pointers. ie. how to get yourself the number 1 pick in the draft and get away with it.

    I won't be joining novice though.

    The league will be at Yahoo. I'll give you the number and password if you send me a PM. I think there is room for 8 teams.

    Format will be head to head. If you played in the Novice League last year, it should be the same. I may change the number of trades and moves allowed, but that is still up for debate.

    If we can get everyone online, I would like to do a live draft. Right now, the draft is set for Sunday, October 28th, at 3:00pm EST. We can move it, or discuss options depending om peoples schedules.

    I think this league should be for the amateur or the incompetent. I fall in the latter category. If you have a little banner under your name that says "fantasy champ", this isn't the league for you. If you played last year and finished in the bottom 4... welcome back. :)

    If it's anything like the last few years, this should be lots of fun if you show up to play.

    The winner this year will receive a basketball related prize provided by... me. Probably a book, bobblehead, or some other Pistons Basketball related item.

    This surprises me after you picked up Joey Harrington.

    I really encourage you guys who have not played before or who have not had a lot of success in fantasy leagues in the past to sign up for Linwood's league. Don't be afraid to learn. This is the perfect time and it's not difficult in the least.

    Also, I'm not certain how many other leagues the forum will be having this year, so competition could be tough to get in them.

    Joey has surprised some and more. And he's a heck of a better producer than Losman, who is on my bench.

    I'm in. I never seem to place better than 3rd, despite having a lot of experience!

    League update:

    Looks like we have the following players interested in a franchise:

    Dlev59
    dba
    BillLaimbeer
    Abe Froman
    Roscoe36
    Mikhail73
    Linwood

    That means there is room for one more.

    I can jump in on this one right now or wait for the Advance League to open where I finished second last year:second:.

    Let me reserve a spot now and once Motown opens the other league I can relinquish my spot here or sell it....:)

    I think the league is looking very solid right now. I am considering adding expansion teams. If anyone is interested, let me know.

    Linwood, if a franchise becomes available or you add expansion teams I would like to play. I did place 3rd last year by micromanaging my roster on an hourly basis!:) Plus Slippy was on a cross country trip and unable to make critical roster changes. All I'm trying to say is I'm no pro, but I really want to play fantasy basketball on pf.com. I passed up pf.com baseball and football this year so as not to dilute my competitive focus! Also, I like the idea of 8-10 teams only, so as not to dilute the top 140 pool of talent. I spent way too much time analyzing statistics on guys that didn't play that much. Anyway, just let me know. If not, I'll play on yahoo public league but I'd rather play on pf.com. And if there is an advanced league, I'm not ready for prime time yet. Thanks.

    P.S. Linwood, I just wrote out my list of must-see-probably-the-last-season-in-Seattle Sonics games. After this season, we'll have to drive to Portland to see the Pistons. What a drag. Anyway, I'll pm you. Maybe we can get the best available $15 seats on some of them.
