Time to see how many TSTers want to participate in TST private leagues. Hosted by Yahoo Sports, we'll be setting up as many 10 team leagues as needed. We are looking for people who will be active; involved throughout the 2012 FF season. You will be able to chose from a "LIVE"DRAFT" league, or "AUTO SELECT" where your team will be chosen for you if you don't have the time to participate in a live draft. (note: a live draft with 10 teams - 13 roster position to each team - will more than likely take a few hours) This is FF league is FREE, so it won't cost you money to join.

Since this is based on "10 team leagues", and first to sign up gets in, the cut off for sign ups will based on groups of ten(10). Final day to sign up will be July 1st, 2012. This post will appear daily until the cut off date.

The format chosen will allow as many moves as you want each week. Adds by waiver will be decided by original draft order, so if two people want the same player - one having the fifth choice in the draft, the other the 6th choice - the fifth choice person gets the player. It will rotate, so if the same people claim the same three players, the person with the 6th original draft choice gets the second player, and so on.

By signing up, you also agree the league commissioner has final say over all disputes. If you'd like to be in a league with a few of your TST friends, I'll try to make it happen, but there are no guarantees. ONE TEAM PER PERSON in one league. No multiple teams allowed since we are trying to fit as many people in as possible.

The question on all your pointy heads minds: Will there be a prize? There will definitely be a prize for the overall winner who has the most points during the season out of all the leagues. I haven't quite figured out if this will extend into the playoffs, if so, a prize for the Champion will probably be my Yugo, or something I decide that's worth more than $18 (the Yugo's Blue Book value).

To sign up:

In the subject line in the comments, type: Sign me up!

In the body of the comment put your team name, and whether you want to be in a LIVE DRAFT or AUTO DRAFT league. I also need an e-mail address to contact you. If you don't want to publish your address in the thread, get a hotmail account for the FF season and enter it in here or copy your entry to an e-mail, and send it to me.

This is so I can differentiate between questions you have about the FF leagues and actual sign -ups.
