I'd be down for a mixed 12-16 teamer, w/ serpentine draft.

Preferably on Yahoo.

The ability to go "scoreboard" on someone would be outstanding!

I'd be interested as well. I don't have many posts on here, but my yahoo fantasy profile (of the same username) shows a fair amount of success on my part.

I vote for applicants to have an 80 percent + yahoo profile ... and for a mixed 16 team h2h league. Roto takes out a lot of luck but doesnt have the one on one trash talk aspect nor playoffs.

I'd rather do an AL only just because I think it takes greater knowledge of players when the player pool is thinner, but I wouldn't be opposed to a mixed league. Roto or Head to Head doesn't matter, although I do prefer weekly transactions. let me know what you're thinking. ozzie_97@hotmail.com

I would enjoy doing some auction action. It's the next step for fantasy drafts, I think.

I have a feeling that when next season rolls around, we'll end up doing some leagues together for the hell of it. For example, I could see myself joining/commishing a Yahoo! roto league that would, of course, feature some of my favorite posters on this forum (if they would have me, that is B))

Lenny-

Did some further checking since my last melt down and this is as good a place as any to bring it up.

And you're right that recent LABR and TOUT competitors haven't been up to par.

But you should tell these nice folks you competed against the best, back when the guys in the "business" were also the "experts" and not just "personalities". You are thought of especially high by the gent I place amongst all others in the "expert" category. Thought of rather highly by a couple of hacks I hate with a passion too. Sorry to confuse you with today's "personalities" (who also had good things to say, but screw those guys).

But your true persona- or what I have been lead to believe truly is- didn't come through to me for the reasons of which I went into great detail, as futile as it seemed to be.

Starting to think you are more like my old partner Bob Schenks, the best expert "gamer" I know. (Not to be confused with the above "expert" in re your references.)

For the reasons I also testily but painful explained I can't be a part of any further leagues, even if I would be invited. As some know I'll soon be leaving fantasy sports -amongst other things- behind. I planned to stop posting in here altogether, but I'm still weaning myself. Helps keep me sharp. Hoping I go out winning 1 more IDP League, and I've bagged 1 FB League Championship (out of 4) already.

Good luck everybody-

Ti

I'm up for any type of mixed league draft. Doesnt matter the league size, draft type, H2H or roto, anything is fine with me.

OOOOOOOOOOOOH YEAH.

I had a bunch of brackets and just got hammered, like roughly 34% on all.

Dropped me down from 73% to the low-mid 60s now.

Doing the math, if you took my percentage for just "the big three" (football, baseball, hoops) i'd have a rating of 78%.

But I got bored and screwed around with golf, nascar, pick 'em, etc. Bah!

Wow, sorry to hear that. I thought TOUT Wars was the The Show for roto players. As far as the term "expert" goes, I use the term losely now. For one, with the internet, people can catch on to the sport (er...hobby) of fantasy baseball much easier now. Your favorite sleeper is not so much of a sleeper anymore when there is 13 blogs written about him.

Secondly, I just think these "experts", or I guess paid fantasy advisors, think too much. Last year I finally decided to shell out some cash for Baseball Forecaster. An overall decent book, but not worth the money I paid for it. I felt overwhelmed with the 18,000 acronyms, sabremetrics, formulas, super split stats.....made my head hurt. You practically needed a degree in Astro Physics to take it all in. I find much better advice in forums like this, people follow their gut feelings and shoot straight from hip. Also, advice in numbers works well too.
