The Rotoworld-based fantasy football league Where Legends are Born is in need of a few new members.  We have 14 teams, and 4 members from last year, including the founder (who some of you may know), dropped their teams for various reasons, and a 5th hasn't been active on these forums since September and has not signed up for the league yet on yahoo.  That being said, we will be looking for 4 and potentially 5 new members, subject to the 5th member and whether I hear from him or not.  During the offseason and closer to the start of the league year, we will be having a 3 round rookie draft and a subsequent 1 round free agent draft, both of which will be taking place under the Where Legends are Born league thread.

Here's the link to the scoring setup (it is a yahoo based league):

Eric Weddle

Those are the 5 teams available.  I would like teams joining this league to be active on these forums, as the drafts take place in the league thread here.  Everybody that "applies" for one of these teams will be considered, but my personal preference is for people active on the forums/people I know from other leagues.

If you are interested in taking over one of these teams, please let me know via PM or posting in this topic.  Thank you in advance.

This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm interested in taking over a team. I'm a highly active manager. If you were to decide to let me join, I would like to manage team number four.

If you would do me a favor, could you rank the 6 teams in order of preference?  At this point, you are on the list of people to join this league, but there have been other people that have contacted us ahead of you.  If you would give me your ranking, I can get a hold of you when everything shakes out and let you know what team you would receive.  I will do everything I can to get you your first preference though.

Yeah that's no problem. Ranking them by preference I would go. 4, 2, 5, 3, 1, then 6.
Thanks for the consideration.

I'll email you when I know more, as we're trying to get a hold of the people "ahead" of you, if you will.  I would go ahead and consider yourself in though.

League isn't public, so I'm unable to see the settings.  Potentially interested though.  Can't rank the teams until I know the scoring settings.  Thanks.

Gotcha, didn't realize that when I posted the link.  I'll try to give as much relevant information as I can below.

30 passing yards = 1 point
10 rushing/receiving yards = 1 point
PPR (1 reception = 1 point)
25 return yards = 1 point
Pass TD = 4 points, all others = 6 points
There are both regular D/ST and IDP points.

1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K, 1 DEF, 2 DB, 2 LB, 2 DE, 13 Bench

Tell you what, my email address is sportsguy21792@yahoo.com, send me an email if you're interested in joining and want any more information regarding any settings.

Bumping to try and gain more interest, we still have 2 open spots.  Also, please disregard the draft position in parentheses next to each team, as the draft order may change depending on a league vote after the league is full.

Which 2 teams are still avail?  Haven't ever played in an IDP league, a bit gunshy, but still keeping an eye on it

At this point, teams 1, 2, and 6 are still available.  There is currently one other person that has expressed interest in joining, but has yet to give me his preferences on which team he would like.  I'm assigning teams on a first come, first serve basis, so if you express interest in joining and give me your preferences on which team you would like before the other person, I will give you your higher option first.  Hopefully that all makes sense.

Bumping this once again to let people know that there are still two available teams.  I haven't heard from our 12th member as to which team he wants, so each of teams 1, 2, and 6 are available until I hear from him.  Unless we can get 2 more members in a reasonable amount of time, we will likely have to contract and drop down to 12 teams.

To edit once again, I have heard from our 12th and most recent member, and he has chosen to take over team 1.  Teams 2 and 6 are still available for anybody that wants them.

Yet another bump.  We really need somebody to take over this last team, team 6.  It might be a bit of a challenge and might be in a bit of a rebuilding phase, but with the right owner, I have no doubt team 6 will be a good team in no time.  Who's up for taking over this last spot?
