Normally I would have sent out invites to y'all weeks ago, but I've been waiting to see if the pro season is cancelled and/or pushed.  Just three weeks out, it looks to be on track to open on Thursday September 10.  

In that light, those of you who play in the league...do you want to attempt it again this year?  We have no skin in the game (ie. money) so there's nothing lost if we try.  But I also get the uncertainty that creeps in as well as the potential disruption we've seen in other non-bubble sports like MLB. 

I need to know your opinions within the next week so that I can set it up if that's the consensus, so sound off!

Matt, thank you once again for setting all this up. However, this year I think the Transmetropolitans are going sit this one out. My interest in the sport and fantasy sports in general is on the wane, so I'd rather my spot be filled by someone who's going to appreciate it.  Thanks to everyone for all the fun over the years, and good luck to you all!

I'm still trying to wrap my head around there actually being football in this pandemic world, but I think I found my way.  I'm going to set up the league on Monday, so you all will be getting emails from Yahoo that day.

In that light, I'll need to know how many are truly interested.  We're a ten team league, but so far only six have confirmed with John Leach bowing out for the season.  That's totally understandable, of course, but we need an even number.  I have no problem playing in the pool of an eight team league this season, but we need two more to say "yes" or, if everyone else agrees, one other person to bow out.  See what I mean? 

I'd like to do the live draft next Sunday (September 6) at 11 AM PST/2PM EST.  If you can't participate, no worries.  You'll autodraft as normal.  But I'd check that considering the current situation.  You'll have to grade your draft as you've never done before in light of opt outs and potential disruptions due to COVID.

Thoughts?

So, check that, I just set it up.  Y'all have an email in your inboxes now.  

Here's the skinny:  Yahoo will only allow leagues with an even number to play.  Currently we stand at 9.  I don't think I can recruit a tenth team in a week, so that means that we'll be an 8 team league this year.  Probably not too bad considering the pandemic shit that's going on, but that also means I need one other team to pass on playing this season. That team will be welcome to play with open arms next season when, hopefully, Biden is president and we are closer to normal than the shitshow of 2020. 

I obviously need to know that before the live draft happens.  I'd say the six who have already replied are golden because they really want to play. We would just need one of the other three to bow out: either Brad, Dave or Marc.  I hate to force that on you guys, but it seems to be the only fair way to do it.  

Decide among yourselves and let me know either here or via email.  But it's important that I know by the end of the week.

Matt, my fiancee plays FF with Yahoo also. I can see if she'd like to be our 10th.
