#555041 Is anyone taking the lead on this fall as commish? The season is just around the corner and I have an A League title to defend.

For the record, I am going to be overseas most of the next month so I am not volunteering to be commish.

#555085 I'm in regardless (and I'm working and chasing two boys so no I wouldn't want to be commish even if people didn't remember how I sucked at it)

#555123 yeah yahoo has made this auto renew terrible easy but too easy to the point where you aren't quite sure everything is done that needs to be done. all i had to do was pick a draft day/time.

#555159 Ugh, won't be able to make the draft. That's always one of my favorite experiences.

#555180 Fincastle is jbock... anyone friends with him on Facebook or something?

#555225 Nope, I'm Johnny U.
JBock is Fincastle. He indicated earlier in the thread that he's in.

#555246 I am doubting that I will be a in a position to be part of the draft. I am overseas the next three weeks in Australia & Indonesia. I am essentially the AM/PM opposite of ET + 1 hour that week and the week prior in Jakarta. I am back on US soil starting the 31st but will be headed to Bangkok & Melbourne likely on 9/6 for a week or so. In other words, if it works out for me to be in the draft, great. Otherwise don't sweat it.

#555254 Got my Yahoo Fantasy app so I should be in for the draft (although my missing is a regular punch line round here)

#556174 yep. there was no compelling way around sly's dilemma so i just kept it.

#556187 Sly wound up with David Johnson AND Zeke Elliott so it kind of worked for him. The draft was kind of strange, but then again I'm not a fan of auction drafts so that might be on me. A Todd Gurley going for $75 and an Andrew Luck for $1 doesn't make sense to me.

As the recipient of Andrew Luck for $1, I am pretty hopeful for this season. I have a pretty decent team but expect to be middle of the pack.

#556218 I admit that I was pleasantly surprised at how auto draft didn't completely bury my season before it began. Last season I had a good draft but won the league based on acquisitions during the regular season. I suspect this year's champ will follow a similar pattern.

#556231 I wanted either Gurley or Goff as a Rams fan and when Gurley came up, i wasnt gonna let him go by the board..
I got some solid guys elsewhere in the draft, and probably will be more active on the waiver wire instead of riding my whole farm of horses into the ground

#559767 Well we are at the quarter pole and yours truly is 4-0 with a 1 game lead over Sly, who i dominated in week 1
Postie, in his first year in the league is 3rd on the tiebreaker with Johnny U. Jbock is 5th (i match up with him this week) followed by i believe RM, then Adam, Flamerbob and rounding out the league is the other MicahK who is I believe LUconn.

I think Micah is RubberMallet, but I’ve been wrong before.

#564789 We've got quite a barn burner for the four championship slots. Teams 3-5 all losing and #6 winning basically means that the final week of the season has four teams for two slots. MicahK's Team and Liberty Flames are pretty much locked in regardless this week's result, leaving Sly's Flying Foxes, Fincastle Fanatics, thepostman and adam42381 for the final two spots

Here are the standings after week 13 concluded yesterday

As of the moment only two playoff spots have been secured and 4 teams are fighting for the other two with two others who could sneak in but it would take something monumental for it to happen.

Liberty Flames v2.1 and MicahK's Team have clinched spots in the championship semifinals.

Adam42381, thepostman, Sly's Flying Foxes and Fincastle Fanatics are jostling for the other two spots, while former finalist Johnny U and My Vick in a Box both could sneak into the top 8 with wins. They also need at least two of the teams above them to lose, but with two of them facing each other in Sly and postman, the chances are going to be quite long of jumping that high, and they both need to have all time high scoring weeks to overcome the first tiebreaker.

#566566 Well we still have Monday night to go but looks like the championship semifinals are set with postman and adam guaranteed wins. All that is left to decide is who will be the #1 seed. I'm guaranteed to lose thanks to the Bears defense stepping up while on my bench...and MicahK has two opposing players matching up, so FFG, im gonna be rooting for the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow night.
