Me join too. But totally weird, most of the players are not listed. No Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, or Keller.

No, it's only the players who were playing in the EPL 2005-06 season. EPL. That's it. They could be from any country, but they must have played in the EPL last season. Get it? Get. It?

That makes for a pretty useless competition! Though it's also the answer I got from their support person. FIFA also have a free fantasy game, http://en.fifaworldcup.fantasysports.yahoo.com/, so why don't we set up a league there and get all of the players? I can do it after work tonight.

I'm steering clear of FFL until the next Premiership season. Good luck to all who take part.

Since no one set up a league on the Yahoo site, I just did. Group name is SpoFi, password is sfilter2006. Join up so I can smack you down!

WC, can you use your internal connections to help me out? I didn't get the league ID number and now can't access it, nor is it on the list of groups I'm in.
