Official GWJFFL 2008 Interest and Setup Thread

Hey, I'm willing to play wherever.

You can call my team The Phog.

I have only used two sites, Yahoo and AOL. AOL sucked big time, I liked Yahoo but apparently doesn't have some features other people feel are essential. I can't comment on any other sites, I'll follow the crowd wherever.

My new team name is: Elliottx's Hammer. My players are not The Hammer.

My new team name is "9th Ward Boyz".... It's a New Orleans thing.

I'll likely call your team all sorts of things but if you want to call it "The Phog", that's what I'll put on the map.

You can call my team Champions.

FleaFlicker looks fine to me. As long as it's NOT AOL, I'm cool.

FleaFlicker looks fine. I pleaded for the love of God and country and all that's holy and good for them to put in blind bidding in the survey as directed.

Name my team Nightmare's Nightmares. Mocking can commence......now!

Fleaflicker looks fine to me. I did my part on their survey to pimp blind bidding.

FleaFlicker IS AOL. Just not powered by Fanball.

Did you make her fill out the FleaFlicker survey?

Err, I mean, pics or it didn't happen!

Regrettably, no phone as one beach where the water and sand are.
Also regrettably, no digits. Because I am 'good friend' material.
As for names, I'm a math major. I'll start with Boogle's numerical palindromes, but I'm up for suggestions.

Boogle's Caboodle.

Boogle's Regressions to the Mean
Boogle's Standard Deviants

I see the league for this year is closed. I'm happy to be an alternate, and would certainly enjoy playing next year.

I'll give it till friday, but this has an early lead

Gotcha on the list, Phishposer.

kaostheory's Centurians

although if anyone has any super clever suggestions, I could be swayed

Blacksheep's PUP List

Did me well last year. Probably screw me this year.

It looks like our AOL leagues from last year made the conversion to FleaFlicker pretty much intact.

EDIT: Well, the field goal scoring rules need to be fixed, but other than that...

Since I won it one year (two years ago), and was relegated down the next year, if I say 'yeah', do I go back in the big league?

I tried to sign up for fleaflicker and holee sh*t is it annoying.
I hit all the confirm links and it wont let me log on.

Sign-ups opened on 7/7. There were spaces available all the way until 8/1, and I had to put an "advertisement" thread over in G&P to get the last two. We've even had someone already get on the waiting list for next year (or 1st alternate for this year). If you say "yeah", I'll make sure you're locked in at 2nd alternate. Sorry.

Edit: Of course, if you find 9 more interested GWJ'ers, I will (foolishly, no doubt) open up a third league.

Dang. Should have been checking here earlier, obviously.

Feel free to put me in as an alternate.

Well that's 3. If you can talk *Legion* into running another team, you only need 7 more.

(WTF am I doing? ;))

If enough alternates show up to fill 2/3rds of a league, then I'd be OK with some doubling-up to fill the ranks.

But I would expect some no-shows come draft day from the first two leagues. Especially with such early sign-ups.

Thats smart.

Can't believe I missed the thread. Count me in as the xth alternate.

Good point. Keep an eye out for a roll call on the week of the 17th to make sure everyone is still committed. Anyone who doesn't check in between the 17th and 23rd will get a PM from me. I'll figure out subsequent steps if and when they are necessary.

Gotcha down in the 4a slot.

Notice, I'll take up a second team if the 3rd league thing pans out.
I'm only taking 13 hours in the fall.

5 slots left for the as-of-yet non-existent 3rd league. Note that it won't be created until we confirm that everyone is still committed during the aforementioned roll call next week.
