I'm in. Be rude not to try to three peat! ;)

Rock sent me a pm saying our old friend Old_Style is interested in returning after a couple of years away so I vote he has the possibility of rejoining if any others drop out (and he does want to).

I'm going to also throw the auction card out there for discussion...

PS Thanks Roto for volunteering to commish!

I would have no objections to an auction draft as long as it was a slow draft.

First, I know I'm in the minority, but whether the league has 10 teams or 20, I don't care. The main thing is having active owners. In my money league, we draft between 400 and 420 players regardless of the number of teams. We tweak the roster sizes, and starting line ups to accommodate shifts in league membership. The league I'm referring to usually has between 14-18 teams, we did have 20 last year. The rosters were small but no one complained. I believe the Leftover League can handle anywhere from 10-16 teams comfortably.

Second, I believe we ran a "practice" auction last year and it went okay. I'm on the fence.

Third,one word, or acronym actually...FAAB. I'm blocked at work and FCFS kills me.

Fourth, I'm very easy going. As long as everybody is treated well I don't care what rules we play by.

Old Style is very good...he will give RBV a run for his money.

Enjoy life. One day you will be dead for a very very long time.

Wouldn't have a problem with FAAB if there is only a one day wait.

Thanks RBV. However, I have to state that an auction draft would turn me off. I have trouble keeping up with you in a snake draft getting the players that I target, let alone losing my targeted players in an auction.

On another note, I subscribed to couchmanagers and the admin was kind enough to give me extra mock draft credits, so all the members in the Leftovers league can draft in our league draft for free without subscribing. Hopefully most people who are blocked at work can use a smart phone to get to the site for updates. If not, we'll make do.

I think we need to wait for others to check in before we get too ahead of ourselves. First issue is league size. After that everything should fall into place. :-)

As Oscar previously mentioned, I'm in. Glad to hear from Old_Style. Wasn't sure he was still around.

I like the snake but would not oppose if we went to auction. I would have to do another auction mock to get a better understanding of how it runs. I was totally lost when we ran the mock last year.

I agree with Thirday on FAAB, as long as it is a 1 day waiting period.

Love drafting on Couchmanagers.

I'm very sorry for not responding in a timely manner.

I will gladly return, and appreciate the gesture. Here's to hoping my sophomore effort provides more of a challenge as a whole.
