Judging by your taste for players in the current Cafe Mock draft, I think you'll hold your own here just fine. We all have our own particular style, but you managed to take just about every player in every round I'd have probably snagged at your draft position. I win some and I lose some, but for what its worth I loved your draft picks there - so stop that now and please draft players I don't want in this league aight? :-b



Ha, thanks. I started realizing maybe I shouldn't divulge ALL the thoughts I'm having on players until after the Octagon drafts. :-D

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is chopped liver. :-D Why participating in the mock is the mark of distinction I'm not sure. ;-7

I kid, but yeah, stacked league, jesus murphy. I love it. ;-D


I love it too. Trust me, I know how difficult it is to win in the Octagon. My teams have hovered right around .500 the last two Octagon seasons.

Great. Now with 6 for, and 2 against,and only 3 to vote, we have a majority vote for dual format regardless.

Dual league it is.


;-D

CDoc and bokzg -- since you guys are gonna be kinda tag-teaming commish responsibilities in the Champions League, how bout one of you takes on commish duties of the H2H league and the other commishes the ROTO league? Sound good?

i have to warn you all, we used to have 2 tiered league (a and d league) with many regulars participating, back in the day at fanball. i won a-league 2 times in a row over 3 years that i participated. then it was disbanded after fanball went down. just so you guys know who you're messing with :-D

Loving the smack I'm hearing. Loving the talk of crazy stacked leagues. Isn't it interesting that all the chatter is coming from us down here in the First Division? It's like the guys in the Champion's League (hopefully, soon the be the FBC Octagon) are just focused on the significant task at hand. All that training. All the hours of working out weirdly-obscure fantasy hoops technique to put themselves in this position.

I'm guessing its like the last few moments before an Olympic 100 meter dash - all these finely tuned massive egos ... just ... saying ... nothing. :-*

Since I get my requested break from the high-intensity fish-bowl, is there any objection to asking our Yahoo! contacts if the upper league(s) can be made publicly-viewable (similar to the Y! Friends/Family league) to give these guys some recognition/audience for competing at the highest level? Or do we just want to keep the Octagon our little secret - Fight Club style?

Looks like all leagues are full -- excellent. I've gotta say this is the most excited I've been about a league in a long time.

I feel like a victim of a severe lack of context. :-C You guys and your fancy culinary metaphors, and your fancy gifs, and your fancy smack talk. Great googly-moogly.

I have a fancy little white sports car icon under my name and a large and unshakable ego, and that's all I need (the car for style, and the ego just to fit in ;-D ). Your twitting bothers me not in the least. :-D

Damn this is going to be a good league. B-)
