Wishing The NFL Lockout Away: Who's In?

SoSG regular Mr. LA Sports Czar sent a letter to SoSG headquarters inquiring about interest in another Fantasy Football League this year:

Dear Sax,

As you may or may not know, the NFL is in the midst of a minute labor dispute. Sources indicate said dispute will end sometime this upcoming week. This has me thinking: is it time for SoSG Fantasy Football signups?

Last year's effort was largely off-the-cuff. I was bored one day, and just decided to make a league, thinking interest would be tepid at best. But people seemed to be really invested in it, and the ten available spots filled up fairly quickly. This year, I was hoping to gauge readers; that way, I can create a league with enough spots for everyone interested.

I would greatly appreciate a post in order to know just how many people would be willing to sign up. Thanks!

- Mr. LA Sports Czar

So who's in for more fantasy football inanity? Reply with a comment to this post!

I was running short on public humiliation this year. I'm in.

Spank said...

I'm in to defend my last place crown.

QuadSevens said...

I'd like to challenge for the last place spot.

Jason said...

I intend to challenge for the crown of mediocrity. Fifth place, here I come!

Neeebs said...

I'll do it.

Marla World Peace said...

We did it! We got Juan Rivera!

Mr. Customer said...

We're buying for what reason, Neddy?

LoneLy Fan said...

What the hell, I think I can beat out Quad for last place.

Wicks said...

I'd like to have a go this year.

Marla World Peace said...

So that's:

Mr. C
Spank
Q7
Jason
Neeebs
LoneLy Fan
Wicks

Adding myself, that's eight spots so far. I could probably go six more for a manageable 14.

Marla World Peace said...

Of course, if more than six wish to play, I'd be willing to accommodate them. 20 is the max though.

Josh S. said...

I felt left out last year, so I'm in.

Of course, I have no idea what I'm doing, but that never stopped me before.

Central Valley Fan said...

Time to represent the central valley!

Central Valley Fan said...

@Josh,

That's called McCourt'in it...

Marla World Peace said...

Reminder: This is done through ESPN. If you do not have an ESPN account, I strongly recommend making one soon.

Marla World Peace said...

Halfway to the max amount...

Steve K said...

I'd be interested in joining, adding some competition to the fight for last place...

NicJ said...

Count me in. I have to defend my title of "most points scored by players on roster but inactive"


Tears of a Tebow lives on!!!!

Spank said...

@ Josh

You want to draft Drew Brees and Shonn Green in the first two rounds. Wait..that's what I did last year.

(cries)

Paul said...

I am in. Not representing the central valley!!!

Paul said...

Do we get points for player arrests this year?

Steve Dittmore said...

Didn't I win this last year? I'm definitely in... bring it boys and girls.

Jason said...

Will we have Karina and MB to class up the joint again this season?

Paul said...

Dittmore!! We will meet again. Or probably not since I don't think I can get another Vick on the waiver wire.

Marla World Peace said...

We've hit 14.

rbnlaw said...

Oh what the hell? OC has to have its share of the glory that is last place!

Marla World Peace said...

Make that 16, including MB (who has entered via Zuckerberg's piggy bank) and rbnlaw.

Paul said...

These expansion teams mean I'll be starting Reggie Bush at running back!

*cries*

karina said...

Who made Karina cry??? I will cut you.

World B. Dusty said...

Can we have a league chat thingy that doesn't filter out of cussing? Because without profanity, I really don't have anything to say.

Marla World Peace said...

I think I'm going to stop with 18. I will be making the league at 3:00 this afternoon. If you do not comment by that time, you're shit outta luck.
