Commissioner Corner Message Board
If you've entered a league of fewer than 10 teams, don't bother.
If you snap up closers in the first eight rounds, don't bother.
If you can't separate your hate for the Yankees from you competitive spirit, don't bother.
If you agonize over whether to take A-Rod with the first pick, don't bother.
If you can't calculate ERA, forget it.
If Yahoo is your only fantasy sports venue, forget it.
But if you have:
-- Participated in 50 drafts just to hone your skill before the "real" games
-- Punted a category and won a league
-- Participated in a seven-hour auction
-- Made a trade you instantly regretted then sighed in relief when the guy you gave up had Tommy John surgery the next week
-- Scoured every conceivable site for player news that might give you an edge, then wind up going with your guy
If any of this sounds eerily like you, then I might have a league you'll like because chances are you'll draft a team and if it doesn't look good on the front end you'll try to work some deals that either might get you closer to the top by the end of this season or set you up for the next.
There may not be instant gratification, but if you're like me the fun comes in competing, building and seeing the results -- even if it takes a couple of years.
If I put together a league of folks like us, we'll find a way to make it rewarding. But if you only want jerk off one time for the rush and quit, forget it.
This sounds like my kind of league. Is this a league where you'll keep your whole roster. Or is it a cheese league where you keep 5 players so there will always be prime players available at the start of each year and you don't really have to do alot of planning and projecting for the future?
