Is the Yahoo site down again? I registered yesterday, but now it's not even showing up on their fantasy links.

And regarding hi chi, I think waiting to see if he gets the invite to sign up is reasonable enough. Not sure where else we could find a replacement though...other than trying to pick up someone from Busersports/BBM. There might be a couple of guys from over there who would interested in this particular format (being salary based and all).

The Yahoo hoops wasn't supposed to up yet and they had to pull it back, which probably means we'll have to re-register and whatnot. :-t

Hey guys. Got the pm. Always nice to be thought of in a positive light in spots like this so thanks for that. Looked over the league rules, rosters, etc some this evening when I had time. Seems like a great league and I decided it is something I'd be interested in (this far out from the season I don't feel too over-committed just yet :D).

If I'm reading the spreadsheet right I do have to wonder what use Derrick Rose on an expensive expiring contract would actually be :-{ , but it would be a fun challenge, and 2 top 3 rookie draft picks would be appealing.

That said I realize the sentiment is to give hi chi some more time to show up at the moment, and I understand that completely, it's his team and he's put the work in in previous season(s). I'm willing to just be on stand-by until hi chi shows up or the powers-that-be in this league make a decision to move on. If he does show then I'd just wish you guys luck and ask that you keep me in mind for possible future openings.

Thanks for understanding. If for whatever reason hi chi doesn't show up, the team is yours, and that decision should be made no later than about 2-2 1/2 weeks out.
