I think I'm going to pass.  I just haven't been active enough (in fantasy) to feel like anything other than a person taking a slot.  I guess if you are stuck odd, and NEED one more, I can join though.

Thanks for letting us know.

 

I will miss you, and your team names.

I'm in a 10 team real salary roto league. Team name - Clipper Nation (how original)

I finished 2nd the last 2 years. Last year I was in 1st ALL year until the f**king last day of the season. I tanked just like the Clips did. lol

I want to lock the teams by Thursday evening, so please everyone join by then.

 

If we have more than 12 managers, I will make the playoffs top 8 instead of top 6.

WTF Yahoo just added me into some on-demand draft league, and now I can't leave it because the draft already started.

A fantasy goal of mine has been to win a Yahoo Winners league.

 

To do that, you have to win a Yahoo public league the year before.

 

I won a Yahoo public league in 2006-2007, and was 3rd in the winners league in 2007-2008.

 

I won a Yahoo public league in 2008-2009, and was 11th in a winners league in 2009-2010.

 

From 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014, I was unable to win a public league.

 

I finally won 2 public leagues in 2014-2015.

 

Now Yahoo will only let me join 1 winners league, it seems.  I emailed and asked why I can't join 2 winners leagues, since I won 2 public leagues.

 

That, combined with their stupid 1-click on-demand draft that I somehow signed up for, and I am not happy with Yahoo right now.  I can't even delete this on-demand league, even though it was only a few mins ago that I allegedly joined.

:(

+++++++++++++

 

The league that you signed up for is referred to as an "On-Demand Draft."

This means that, once you enter the draft lobby, you're automatically placed in a Public league.

Once the draft is over, it's not possible for you or Yahoo to remove or transfer your team from the league.

I'm pretty sure this isn't what you hoped to hear, but do know that you're not obligated to visit the team pages for the entirety of the season. If you'd like to stop participating in the league, you can disable email notifications for your team.

 
Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Regards,

Alexis

Yahoo Fantasy Team

Prince2250, tullabye, and vicrattlehead

 

Waiting on you.

 

I want to lock the teams within  ~ a day so I don't have to worry about whether we have an even number of managers during the weekend.

We had 18 managers last year.  Most of them want to rejoin, including the ones that haven't joined yet.

OK!

 

After searching through our baseball league, I found tullabye's new email address.

 

The one I was inviting him to, which was from last year's basketball league, was his old address.

 

Sending him the new invite now.

I also sent invite to MassClip.

 

He joins us some years, but other years doesn't check his email.

tullabye, I sent you an invite to your new email address, a few mins ago (as referenced in the quoted post).

Ok, I found a PM from MassClip from 2014.  He gave me 3 email addresses, and said "by next year, one of them should be working".


LOL.

 

I sent an invite to all of them.  If anyone's curious, they are msn, gmail, and hotmail.  Nice, 3 different domains.

For me, the largest size league means I become familiar with lesser known players.  Which is helpful.

We had 18 last year.

 

It's fun and different to have a league so large.

 

My 2nd time with an 18+ league size.

Rhy1244, can you please join?

 

There's nothing more that I can do.  After 5 Yahoo fantasy invites, and 2 ClipperTalk PMs, I can't do anything else to get the remaining 2 (outside of Rhy1244) from last year to join.

 

If you can join, I'll lock the league so we're set at 16.

 

Thanks for doing this, I know your heart isn't 100% in it.

 

I just sent you a Yahoo Fantasy invite.

I've also tried MassClip, who's been with us a few times since 2006-2007, but not always.  Sometimes he doesn't have internet, or something.

 

He didn't respond either.

Teams are now locked, so we're set with 16.

 

I like the Mario-level emoji that's in Rhy1244's team name.  That made my day.

We still doing the draft tonight?  To me it still seems like it might be best to delay it at least few days.

Yes.

 

We have an even number.

 

Are there any other concerns?

So did I interpret it right?  Is it a Mario level homage design team name?
