    Sign up now.

    Only 10 teams. PM me for the league password. First come first serve basis, but I'm definitely holding a position for JimK and PMKelly, they've been there since the beginning.

    The league name is the Talkbass Funkmasters, and it's through Yahoo, as usual.

    It's an Auto-Pick draft, unfortunately, since I don't know if there's a way to do a live draft, (which I prefer). The draft status will not be set to "Ready" status for several more weeks, just about a week or so before the season starts, so you'll have plenty of time to prepare your draft order. Read the statistical categories closely so that you know how points are awarded, and can draft accordingly. This is the same system we've used for a couple of years now, so I think I'll keep it going.

    Here's the league info:

    I dunno why, but when it comes time to edit my draft picks this always confuses me.

    When editing my draft rankings, whats the maximum number of players I can add to the list?

    Okay, I think once Farley and JimK sign up, we've got room for one team. Let me go double check.

    You can change the draft rankings as you see fit. You should be able to edit as many players as you like at any given time.

    Okay guys, get your pre-draft rankings set.

    On Friday, August 15, at 12:00 noon, PST, I will set our draft status to "ready."

    This means that sometime within the next 48 hours after that, the auto draft will initiate and complete.

    Although, truly, you don't have to get your rankings set, as I will thoroughly trash everyone anyway.
