Yes, the NFL is depraved, criminal, and run by a shambling husk of a man with bloodslush where his brain should be. That being said, fantasy football remains amazingly fun. [more inside]

The Stars Are Right Again! Liverpool have spent like their pockets are on fire, Manchester City have devoured any player with a hint of English ancestry, Aston Villa's janitor has refused a new three year contract, and Arsenal is preparing for their yearly Wegner Out campaign so it must mean the new season of the Premier League is upon us! Join your fellow Mefites as we scramble for fantasy football dominance. You can sign up at the official site, create a team, and join the league. This year, we have the Classic League (code: 370477-97125) and the head-to-head Metafilter Cup (code: 370477-97129) running. Old gaffers and fresh prospects welcome! [more inside]
I just noticed today that Lore Sjoberg's badgods.com is back up, and with it the official archives of Speak With Monsters, a.k.a. Monster Manual Comix, as lamented about a month and a half ago. Yaay!
I have a long standing league whose ranks have thinned to the point where we may have to bag the season, so I figured that I'd toss it out to the internet at semi-random to see if we could salvage this year (and get some awesome new blood moving forward). [more inside]

I haven't seen a renewal of the MeFi baseball league yet this year, so I'm opening up my league to you all cause we need to fill it out! I'll post the user/pass inside.

MeFi Fantasy Baseball '07 needs YOU!
MeFi Fantasy Baseball 2007!!!: It's back! We had a great time last year with 14 teams, and I'd like to run the same deal again- 5X5 Roto, daily lineups. A few changes I'd like to incorporate: - Fewer pitching slots. - $5 fee, to cover Yahoo Fantasy Plus (sorry folks, the free service is just lame) and 2 prizes: League Winner, and Most Improved (in points as of the All-Star break) If you're interested, please drop me a line via my profile. I'd like to cut it off at 15 teams, with preference given to teams who played last year. I'm also open to (reasonable) rule change requests once we've gotten all the managers.
MeFi Fantasy BB Update: We're looking for 3 owners to take over for certain folks who have abandoned their teams after less than a month. They're all "fixer-upper" teams, but two are currently in 6th & 7th (out of 12) place.
MeFi Fantasy Baseball! Anyone up for some last-minute shenanigans? I could throw together a free Yahoo 5x5 Roto league if there's enough interest. Draft would probably be Sunday.
There's already been a MeFi Fantasy Football League, now there's a MeFi Fantasy NHL league. Details inside, if you're interested.
