Yahoo is for You-Hoos: Techcrunch's write-up on Flea Flicker got me thinking about Season 4(?) of SpoFi FFL. Maybe give this a try over Yahoo?

That sounds good to me; I'm always down to try something new. Of course, Yahoo is nice because you can see how people did in previous years, which adds some sense of history to the league. Either way, after my strong 4th place showing in 2004, I need to redeem my heartbreakingly near playoff miss last year. So wherever it is, count me in! Email is in the profile.

I've lost my Yahoo password (sorry Roto league!), so I'm even less tied to a Yahoo league. I'm interested.

Dusted, I think they will send you another one. Anyone interested in doing a keeper league with IDP?

Anyone interested in doing a keeper league with IDP? Oh, hell yeah.

Yeah, but I was throwing this out as a suggestion and in no way an offer to be commish. That would be a very bad thing

bperk, I've written about five emails to Yahoo pleading with them, offering to identify emails and subscriptions, etc. with absolutely no success. I moved a bunch of times around the time I signed up, and I can't remember the zip code or password help I used (I signed up about eight years ago). It's incredibly frustrating. So fuck'em. I'm glad their stock price is tanking.

I guess it is not that big of a deal. But, you lose all the cred that comes with your championships.

Bperk you're going to have to work a bit harder to win in the SpoFi league. Actually, it may be impossible seeing how tightly jerseygirl holds on to that top spot.

Oh. You mean the OTHER FFL.

But, you lose all the cred that comes with your championships. The sort of funny, sort of infuriating thing is that I can't even see what you linked, because I can't log in to my Yahoo account. Ironic, no?

Who is jerseygirl? I don't care, yahoo is easy for me, I'll probably have another league or two there. If someone wants to try another system, I'll follow like a sheep, but I have no strong feelings either way.

Sorry, dusted. You can't even admire your impressive range of tropies. The same thing happened to me about 5 years ago. I never got it sorted out and had to create a new Yahoo password eventually. I thought after a decent time had passed I would be able to get the old name back, but it never happened. So, my Yahoo name is perkb420 and everything else is bperk420. It's not as bad as what you are going through because this was before I started playing fantasy, so I didn't lose all that stuff.

Oh, I'll get in! I prefer head-to-head leagues, but whatever floats yer boats I'm all for it.
