I can't commit to any one specific day until I'm back from vacation in Monday and can go through my events calendar, but I'm in.  Very very in.

I might be down to give this a go. Can you explain what type of league this is?

IT. IS. THUNDERDOME!!! 16 ENTER! 1 LEAVES!

 

No. Really. 16 teams. Snake Draft.  4 divisions.

One of the many things I love about Thunderdome is simply the challenge of fielding something resembling a competitive team week to week.  With 16 teams even that can be difficult.  And injuries?  Yep, good luck with those!

Any dates are good for me except Sept. 4, 5, and 6 (although earlier on Sept. 4 could possibly work).

QB 1
WR 3
RB 1
TE 1
W-R-T 1
K 1
DEF 1
BN 7

The league is fun, but very much a crapshoot with so many teams. Feels like forever for picks to get back to you in the draft, haha.

Why not, I'm down to try a new format. I was curious if this was a weekly elimination league, like the lowest score for the week gets relegated to a shame league or something.

I'll hold off on deciding which of you gets WJ's slot until I hear if we have another drop.

One of the things that makes this league different is that each team gets assigned a 'traditional rival' whom they play every season during "rivalry week".  So really, my choice is about who gets the pleasure of replacing Whiskeyjack as MY rival.

We have done the Westeros Survivor League in the past wherein the low scorer each week is out, regardless of their previous success.  I like that format a lot but it's a pain to recruit because it really needs 16 people.

26th, 28th, 1st, 3rd are all out for me, but most other days appear good at the moment.

The only days I'm doubtful for are:

Friday August 25(W-B's draft)

Saturday August 26(out)

Thursday August 31 (tepidly possible but not likely)
Friday Sept 1 (out)
Saturday Sept 2 (out)
Sunday Sept 3 (out)

The rest of the days look ok at the moment.

Aug 21 and Sept 3 are bad, Aug 22 is dubious, if that helps.

I'm going to go with August 29th at 9PM EDT.  We need two teams, so both owners who requested in are in.  PM me so I can send the invite.  As a snake draft, Autodraft actually does a better job with this league than with the Auctions.  Then again, everything does better than Autodraft in an Auction league, even Jaxom.

Hank Baskett did score me some points that post season, damn it!
