We just hit 10 people via an email relayed to me by fbwinners.

As for now, we'll lock this up. If there are 2 more interested parties, let me know in the next week or so and we can expand to a 12 team league. It will be standard scoring, $50, winner takes all. The league will be setup in the next week or so, giving time for any of the regulars on the forum here to join up and expand to 12 teams (w2w, JG, etc).

The draft will be August 26th or September 2nd. Approximate time of 8pm EST. I'd like to get it as close to the start of the regular season as possible so as to get the most injury disclosure.
If either of the above dates (or the time) does not work for anyone, please let me know asap.
Draft order will be randomized by the host site. I prefer ESPN, but am open to Yahoo or CBS if there is large support for one over the others. For anyone who is in, make certain to read the rules, settings, scoring, etc before the draft.

Thanks FlyinLate & FB! My preference is either CBS or ESPN. Didn't care for the Yahoo format l used last year in a work league...

12 teams were required to begin the league, so we are still on the search for 1 more.
All other teams have been emailed an invite.
The password is horse

FlyinLate, I just signed up and at your convenience send me the payment details and any picks you have for Mountaineer tomorrow as I am driving there from Cincinnati in the morning for West Virginia Derby day.
Thanks for the contest.

What's the latest on our league? I just checked it out, and only 7 people have signed up so far? I thought we had at least 11 players already?

Also, what's the payment process, and how far along are we on that?

I've only gotten 7 responses to the invites off the 11 who have committed to play. It is also worth mentioning that those 7 accepted within 48hrs of the invite being sent. CBS, unfortunately, would not allow me to create a league at any other nomination than 12. If this keeps up through the weekend I'm going to re-make an 8 team league through ESPN and invite only those that responded to the CBS league.

Once we get everyone on board, we'll figure out money.

Not a problem. Accept for now. Unfortunately not seeing a 12th interest either. If we can get 10 by Sunday I'll set up an ESPN league for those 10.

The other option is if anyone has the "commissioner" CBS status, they can create a smaller league for us. Let me know.,

Fantrax is fine. I'm not picky. I'll give it a whirl.

FL If there is still an odd number ShowDough can move into my spot. He may be more into the fantasy than I am and a better challenge for you guys.

My college team is on CBS. The site is pretty awkward, but once you have it set up, you can go in and change the number of teams.

On the home page, click the red setup link (only the commissioner will see this). Then click on Teams and Owners. Above the list of teams there should be drop-box with number of teams and you should be able to change it. At least you can in my NCAA league.

The CBS league is being shut down for the fact that we were only able to obtain 8 members to that league.

A new league has been created at FanTrax. I urge everyone to check their email, register, and accept the league invite as soon as possible. I've sent out the original 9 invites already and ShowDough has the bubble spot if anyone doesn't accept in the next 72hrs. Lets make this work.
