Alright, gamers, let's do this thing. Against the advice of all counsel, I've decided to get this Blog League off the ground.
I'll openly admit that the invite process will be unfair. This isn't a lottery, this isn't a blind draw. I want nice people in this league, respectful people, people who won't make me regret this league start-up decision, people who won't be rude to the other owners. I'm not worried about skill levels — most of our regular readers here are skilled. I want an enjoyable group.
If I haven't eliminated you with the above paragraph and you feel like throwing down Wednesday night at 8 pm ET (it's going to be an auction, so have four hours handy), then I want to hear from you. It's going to be a fairly standard 5x5 affair, with one specific tweak: no DL spots. All they cause is arguments at the end of the day. We live in Fantasy Football without DL spots and everyone seems fine with it (even though football injuries tend to be more disastrous). If you want Carl Crawford on your silly little team, you're going to have to pay for it.
Hit me up on Twitter with a hashtag of #pianowleague if you'd like to be considered. Space is very limited. I want people I know and already like, so if I don't know you, or I already don't like you, your odds aren't good. But there are a ton of Roto Arcade readers I do enjoy and appreciate very much.
Like you. Come roto with me.
