posted by smithers to fantasy at 12:38 PM - 30 comments

Gang, I have taken the liberty of setting up a league for us for the season. SpoFi Hoopsters (ID# 74501); pass: spofi2006 I just kept the same settings from last year's league. They seemed to work OK, but if anyone wants things changed, please let me know, and I will do so. I also took the liberty of setting a draft time of Tue Oct 17 7:00pm PDT (10:00pm EST). Slots were already going fast, and this seemed to be the best compromise for both coasts. Please confirm in the comments that this time is OK for you. ================= League Settings Scoring Type Head-to-Head Max Teams 14 Max Moves No maximum Max Trades No maximum Trade End Date March 8, 2007 Trade Review League Votes Trade Reject Time 2 days Waiver Time 2 days Can't Cut List Yahoo!

In as Maude Lebowski. "Dios mio, man. Liam and me, we're gonna fuck you up." posted by dusted at 4:38 PM CDT on October 6 Damn it all, dusty. I make it my sole mission this year to beat you down. Yessirs....it shall be a no holds barred caged generic-gelatin-coated grudge match between Maude Lebowski and DoristheFinkasaurus. Place your bets now. (also, that date and time *should* work well for me. kthxbye)

DoristheFinkasaurus! I hear beatboxing in the background. I don't want to talk smack, but I haven't lost an NBA league in a few years. Me and Martynas Andriuskevicius are taking care of business. Best of luck, bitches.

Well, it takes a woman like you to bring out the man in me, dusted. Time to bring down the dynasty.

posted by Ufez Jones at 04:22 PM on October 09, 2006

Ha! I first read that as 'bring down the nasty.' I love the pre-draft trash talking.

posted by geekyguy at 07:57 PM on October 09, 2006

Would it help if I did it Rastafarian stylee? "I and I come to bring down dey nasty! Where come Weedy go?"

Spitztenglicious - n. 1. the taste of victory in fantasy sport pools; 2. the sour taste in your mouth left after losing to Spitztengle in a fantasy sport pool translation - Smithers, you best slither under a rock, brah ... you goin' d-o-w-n!

err ... eh hem ... best of luck, all!

"Well, it takes a woman like you to bring out the man in me, dusted." My buddy Bob Dylan wrote a nice song for you:

You know, a woman like you should be at home, That's where you belong, Watching out for someone who loves you true Who would never do you wrong. Just how much abuse will you be able to take?

Probably won't make the draft, but I'll prerank. The assclowns are in.

Well, here's some words you can quote to your championship trophy, dusty: "Good-bye is too good a word, so I'll just say, fare thee well". *snap!*

posted by Ufez Jones at 07:28 PM on October 10, 2006

Oh snap.

To celebrate Dusted's downfall, I now be Bring Down the Nasty.

I was going to go dirtier, but you had to go all poetry and quote Dylan *dons beret, wafts hands in front of body*.

Who's heart you thought you had? You clown, you don't, you drown I won't dumb it down, I'm dumbing now for these rounds I'm a live mothefucker plus I'm gunning for clowns You're mine motherfucker, don't be coming for pounds
pre-draft smack talk *is* fun!

Gang, I just saw this message on the league page: "Your league will not be permitted to conduct its draft if it contains an odd number of managers." Why is that? We now have 13 people in the league....previous commishes: is this going to screw us?

posted by smithers at 01:33 PM on October 11, 2006

a h2h league has to have an even # of managers so that each team has an opponent each week. there is almost a week to fill that last spot so I don't think we're in a bad spot yet. add one or lose one, either way solves it though adding one would be the preference, obviously.

You want The Nasty? YOU GOT THE NASTY. Take a piece, fartknocker

posted by dusted at 04:35 PM on October 11, 2006

And that's it, Ufez: I'm drafting Dirk, Terry and Howard just to make you cry. You can have Dampier, though.

posted by dusted at 04:40 PM on October 11, 2006

Trumped: Odd fact about my fantasy squads over the past few years: I've never had Dirk or Jet. I've always had J-Ho. My prognosis for the Mavs this year, fantasy wise: Jet and Stack's value will drop a bit. Dirk will be Dirk. J-Ho should be J-Ho, although keep an eye on the contract status. My secret late round pick? Well, you'll see that sometime around 10 PM next Tuesday CST*. *to be solidified after I go watch tomorrow night's Mavs/Kings pre-season game. I'll have my notebook handy.

posted by Ufez Jones at 09:42 PM on October 11, 2006

J-Ho should be J-Ho.

posted by dusted at 12:34 PM on October 12, 2006

Does anybody know one more person that can give us a nice round 14??? Pretty please?

posted by smithers at 03:29 PM on October 12, 2006

Make a new locker room post stating we need one more. We're kinda far down the page now. That dog should hunt.
