It's fantasy football time again!

Once again, I've got the Metafilter fantasy football league running on Yahoo! Fantasy.

This year, I'm capping it at 12 teams. Serious players only, please. We had a lot of people last season who joined and then didn't actively manage their squads, which was detrimental to the overall quality of play.

If you want an invite, please MeMail me with your e-mail address.

To be distinct here, reenum is talking about an NFL fantasy league.

Ah, apologies. Carry on.

Your comment was useful to me, modernnomad: I'd missed that thread and I already play on that site. Off to sign up now.

I am one of those guilty of signing up last year and not actively participating. I apologize! After a certain point it became like a burning nugget of shame, and I couldn't even stand to load the website.

Good luck to this year's participants!

My football fantasy is the Lions going 5-11.

I just sent a MeFi Mail, but forgot to ask - do you guys do a live draft? I've been playing fantasy football for years but my leagues always do the auto draft, which I much prefer.

We've got a live draft scheduled. You could just let the computer pick for you though.

I'm in two leagues already, but if you all need someone (serious) to fill a spot or make an even number of teams, let me know and I'll sign up, assuming I can make the draft.

Keep dreaming, George Plimpton.

In England, it's nightmare cricket time against the Aussies. Again.

Uranuses are gonna ureign this league! Prepare for the bombs that I wil urain down upon you!

Well, after 6 seasons of fantasy football, maybe it's time to learn to do a live draft. Trying to rearrange your draft order for a computer pick is usually an exercise in futility anyway.

Damn, I never got the invite sent to my email address and so it filled up without me. Oh well. Have fun!

See, I've already kicked terrapin's ass.
