    ^ I'll probably be second to draft. My team is fourth in scoring but only has 2 wins, go figure.

    Why do people ask to join CFFL and then not even care to set their lineup each week?

    I really think we need to shrink to a 10 man league... only those who care are invited. I am getting killed this year, and I played a team that didn't even put 3 guys in their line up.... but at least I am switching up my roster....COME ON!

    I would agree to shrink it to 10 teams, this is getting pretty ridiculous. When people don't care it spoils it for those that do.

    Non-participating players has been my pet peeve for many CFFL seasons now.

    I hate the Ronco "Set it and forget it" teams. If you are not planning on updating your line up then don't play. Sometimes you miss a week or forget about the Thursday game and that is fine but those teams that have not adjustred their roster since week 3 are @ssholes. I really did not want to play this year but I committed to it and am doing my best to field a top tier team. I am sure you can find 5 minutes to set a line up and make sure all of your slots have active players.

    I think a 10 team invite only league is the best way to do it. Giff and Hink get to choose the other 8 to play is my suggestion.

    Make a serious league and a rec league. I will be one of the other eight!

    I play a money league and if you keep a clear starter on your bench or play a player who is out or IR you get one warning. Two warnings and your team is turned over to someone else.

    Figures that the one guy in our division who played for several weeks with players on bye or out injured suddenly has a complete line-up ready for this week. That's okay, the play-off spot has already been clinched...just a matter of hanging on to first place now

    Tide, I commend you for making an effort with your team even though you weren't getting results. I like the 2 strikes and you're out rule, even though we're only playing for fun. I would certainly suggest that we keep in mind previous activity when deciding who gets to play next year if there is a huge demand for teams.

    Is Chris Johnson capable of getting me 8.06 points tonight so I can beat the Yaks and make the final?

    It depends on which Chris Johnson shows up.... my guess is yes.

    North vs. South

    The Duany Bees look forward to a potential Week 17 showdown against whoever won here...after a 185 to 133 thrashing of the ArgoNots.

    I don't know if the Commish's of both leagues set up the scoring systems to be the same. If they did, maybe it's possible to create a fake Week 17 matchup in each league and then we can compare scores on here. Who's on your roster? It would be interesting to see if we're playing the same players:

    Duany Bees:
    Aaron Rodgers
    Peyton Manning
    Reggie Wayne
    Vincent Jackson
    Brandon Marshall
    Torrey Smith
    Marshawn Lynch
    Reggie Bush
    Michael Turner
    Knowshon Moreno
    Ryan Matthews
    Rob Gronkowski
    Brandon Myers
    Jared Cook
    Blair Walsh
    Jerod Mayo
    Von Miller
    Cary Williams
    Cameron Jordan
    Leodis McKelvin

    Unfortunately we have to score it by hand. So, post your starting rosters before the start of the first game.
