Every Owner has signed in within the last 2 days. That is Awesome! Keep it up!!!



Pretty Sure all that was accurate.

Need a replacement owner for a keeper league

03 March 2013 - 09:56 PM

Great league made up of Bleacher Nation regulars. 24 team league, 5 keepers. Was very active last year except for a couple of owners. League is over at fleaflicker.com

Tommy is working on an awesome new scoring system. Draft will probably be on Sunday the 24th.

I'm not sure which roster hasn't been replaced yet, but I can get a list of players on here when I find out.

The new owner doesn't need to be experienced, just active in the league. Weekly roster settings, so all we ask is that you log in once a week to set your lineup. It's a very laid back and friendly group of people.

Reply in this thread if interested.
