You were in II.

I for one support any and all unlicensed promotion of rabbit.
This is definitely not based in my paranoia surrounding relegation.

Count me out for Division I.

It's around this point where I start to feel that "Is it something I said?" might be appropriate.

At this pace, dropping from 5 to 4 leagues for this year is looking rather likely unless we get a significant injection of new owners. No worries; that's just less cat-herding I have to do. On the flip side, I'd hate to have to cut anyone off who played last year because we didn't have enough interest to fill D2.

I've added you to the waiting list for keeper. Now that Pro is established, the way in is through the lower standard-format leagues.

Hey, keeper and dynasty are the real leagues, I'm done with those piddly Division teams.

I can certainly still run a team, but I'm in too many leagues overall.

Is there room in the money league?

So possibly, however first chance to move up goes according to league rank and then rank within said leagues (first the top finisher from D1, then 2cnd from D1 and so on until it is full, moving to the next league down the ladder as necessary).

Rabbit thinks he can buy his way to the top. You think this is America, son? This is a dictatorship!

Unfortunately for garion in both of those instances minor celebrity and cash would buy his way to the top.

I'm in for Division I.

At a glance I haven't seen the costs to buy in...

But I will play in any league that has openings. I love FF and my friends and family league has been dominated by me for too long. Bring on the healthy competition.

Everything thing is free except Pro/Platinum and one needs to work their way up to it.

For the keeper folks, I should have the 2013 keeper prices done before I go to bed tonight. I'll link the Google Doc once it's done.

Here you go. Please review it as it's a fair amount of tedious detail-oriented work and I'm never sure that I didn't miss something.

Column M will show the keeper price and, if you're curious, column Z will show the inflation over the base price. As shown in column AD (specifically, rows 8 and 9), 85.49% of the 248 players currently on rosters increased in price by 30% or less while only the top 5 points earners (Brees, Rodgers, Brady, Newton, P. Manning) increased by 40% or more.

Sorry I totally missed this earlier! Thank you for all the work you are doing on this!!

Hopefully some day we can enjoy a draft on the same site that we play / claim players on so that you won't have to search all over for the prices.

This looks like it's going to be a great year in the GWJFFL. I'd like to reclaim my spot in

GWJFFL Dynasty

Unfortunately, I will have to give up my spot in

GWJFFL Keeper

I don't like to be in too many leagues, and I already have another one I have to be in. 3 = too many for me, hehe.

Also if we need more for the lower level leagues I can bring in two more gwjers with some prodding and whining at them. Just let me know... (though we would prefer to be in the same league for the trash talking)

I will happily claim my spot/promotion. If there is availability in the Platinum league, I will be happy to jump up there, as well.

I'd like to reclaim my spot in Dynasty.

I'd also like to reclaim my spot in Silver -> Division II. Despite finishing 11th, through some late season maneuvers I beat the 7th, 8th, and 10th ranked teams to win the Consolation bracket. If there's an opening in Division I I would like to take it. If not, I'll stay in Division II.

Also, if there are available slots in any other leagues (Keeper, Division III, etc.) I would be happy to take them. I've sworn off all non-GWJ leagues this year and I usually field about 8 teams so I'm up to the task.

I will take my spot back in pro but am willing to switch with someone who wants to be in pro and I will take their lower league.

I would like to play again this year.

I'm in for both Dynasty and Division 2

Kush is back for some Division I football!

And with that, all 12 Dynasty slots have been reclaimed.

Winning the consolation bracket kept you safe from relegation (or would have if there was a D-III last year ) ...but unfortunately, an 11th place finish is still a long way from promotion... though with all the retirements, you may end up there through pure attrition/consolidation.

You were top of the waiting list for Keeper and having now reclaimed your spot on the list, are first in line for the spot that Laarrs just opened up (as long as he doesn't change his mind) so check out the keeper prices and start thinking about it.

/me checks list, gets confused, goes back to page 1.

Apparently, you should talk to Rabbit.

...but seriously, though, I don't think I can go that route. If you want to drop down to D-I, I can totally accommodate that. I'd then go down the list and offer the slot based on our standard "highest rank gets first chance at moving up" process.

Edit: ...which actually means LeapingGnome should be gifting you sparkle ponies or something because if you bow out, you'll guarantee he's safe from relegation (though he's not yet guaranteed to be relegated anyway).

Ok, I've been out of town but I'm back and I think I'm caught up. Please check not only the registration log, but the various tabs for the three different league types. Make sure you team is highlighted in all the appropriate places as well as on any of the waiting lists that you want to be on. Thanks.

Oooof. That's a rough team. I'll bow out of the keeper league.

I have to admit, this made me LOL. (Sorry.) I suppose you were expecting to take over a championship-caliber team? I guess I figured that anyone used to fielding about 8 teams would be up for the challenge.

Ckozelic, you're next on the list IF Iridium884 doesn't show up.

Nah, just competitive. It was my own fault for volunteering to take over a team in an already established league. I tend to shy away from them for a number of reasons.

Hey Grump, I will keep my spot in Pro. If you need someone to fill a league anywhere else I will be in that too. I am not playing in any other FF leagues this year. My work leagues have turned into all drama so I am bowing out.

DRAMA!
