Hey everyone. With all the dead time waiting for the draft (where we don't have a 1st round pick - yet) and barely any announcements about player acquisitions, I thought it would be a good time to start sending out feelers for getting the league back together.

Who from last year is back in? Who wants to enter for the 1st time. (If I can get us to 20 teams, I'm breaking it into 2 leagues and instituting pro-rel, everyone competes in pigeon cup)

As for Champions League qualifiers from last year. The HoO league had a bit of a hiccup when their commish went through some rough times. I spoke to him and he's doing well, but not even joe joe is sure what happened with their league. I'm afraid they may have gone the way of the NASL (or where the NASL is on it's way). If that's the case, we may have to scrap the CL till we can find a partner league to participate.

So, who's in for 2017? Jack Jack mgarbowski mgarbowski JayH JayH sbrylski Mario Sabo SoupInNYC SoupInNYC FredMertz OSNY87 (einwindir this time around?) anyone else?

PIGEON CUP?? !! People Please ! I'm not about to go back to my old ways but For God Sake think of a better name for The Cup !! Really now . Who wants to hold with Pride a cup that some bird crapped on or in??? This is coming from a Place of Pride and Dignity to who ever wins said cup.

How about The 5 Boroughs Cup or The City Cup, or The Blue Pride cup . I like The Blue Pride Cup because the initials roll easy of the tongue . TBPC . That's so much more Cool sounding . It can even have another name anything is better than Pigeon! I hope those who read this know I'm just trying to be kind even though some will think it's none of my business and I should shut up ! I understand that !

But in my defense and for Good Intentions...Think Better of Yourselves ! Thank- You ! ;):cool:

Do you play for real money? I'm all set with danbucks, but I'm in for real dollars. I lose focus without incentive.

It was $20 per team last year. Split between season champ, 2nd place and the cup winner.

I like Rat Bastard league instead of rat. Then, we can call it the Lampard or FF league for short.

The Rat Bastard Fat Frank Lampard Memorial League. Yep. I'm in.
I'm always open to suggestions. And I like that suggestion :)

Also, if anyone wants to help run it. I got a little overwhelmed with some personal stuff last season. And still busy with it. Happy to organize and keep this running, but if someone's eager to help with the updates (or at least take turns) and someone to be treasurer, I'd appreciate the help.

I run an NFL pickem pool and a March Madness pool so I've got the drill down for being treasurer and can do it here it that helps.

I've never done one of these before.

Does it take up lots of time? Further increase my soccer obsession? Alienate me from friends and family who aren't part of my online community? Potentially destroy my livelihood and bankrupt my company?

Sounds awesome!

I say we bump up the $$ a little (within reason and consensus) to keep it even more interesting. Though I am fine with the status quo if folks prefer.
