    Here we are a team short again, with no one that seems interested. Anyone have any ideas?

    I guess I will play two teams... Not sure if I can handle one, but I will do two if that is okay with everyone.

    i suggested last year that we have a "bot" team. Yea, someone drafts for them, but set it on "auto-pilot" and let yahoo do the roster for them. Then again, one year (where i gave up on FF due to martial tension/home life) i lost to the bot team. Yea, that was an ego buster.

    Well I signed up. We now have 9 teams. I thought we needed 10? Are we missing someone?

    I can get rid of the team I created if we just want to have 8 teams.

    I'll play the 10th team if you need one so no one has to drop out. But everyone knows how good I am at drafting players.

    Well I am playing two teams, so dropping one doesn't hurt my feelings at all.

    I would just as soon keep 10 teams. Joe if you can play the team, that would be great! Thanks. Just get signed up on Yahoo and we can get started with keepers. Joe can have his old team back and Hink will get Hotlanta's old team for the second team.

    I'll dig up your final rosters from last year and post them to a "pick your keepers" thread. Once everyone gets their keepers selected we can get started drafting

    How many do we have left that haven't selected their keepers? Seeing the North all ready to go, gets me wanting to go.

    I have faith that my fellow managers will make their picks, but what happens if one person misses their deadline then do we wait for the next person, or do we start the clock from then?
