Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

You have a family. You have friends, colleagues, lovers. Yet when it comes to home, you don’t go to those people. You come here. Welcome home, grab a chair and join a Razzball Commenter League. While ESPN is the worldwide leader in sports-related stuff and junk, we aren’t using them. We’ll be over at Yahoo! Fantastical Sporticus doing a Rotisserie Auction League. If that doesn’t blow your grey matter, each league will be 12 Teams, with the positions PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C, UTIL, UTIL, UTIL, BEN, BEN, BEN and the categories of FG%, FT%, 3PM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TOV.  Most of the other settings are Yahoo defaults, although we also want to keep the days to protest a trade to one day rather than two. Every team will have those settings to allow for consistency, texture and taste. Oh, wait, I am reading a recipe.

As far as the draft goes, the Nomination Time Limit will be 30 seconds, Bid Time Limit will be 10 seconds, and each team will have 200 smackers to play with. Every league is public, so if you are afraid of the FBI looking at your team, you have been notified. Some of you have said you wanted to join in, so we know we can at least fill up one league, but I want to have a thousand leagues, spreading across the land and destroying Yahoo’s servers. If we can’t do that, any number of players is fine. We just want readers who love fantasy basketball, enjoy the community here, want to try their hand in a new league with new players, and who also respect each other enough to know that friendly trash talk is fine, but hateful or disruptive comments are not welcome.

We also need some folks to act as commissioners. If you want to be a commish like Michael Chiklis, use this link to go to the Yahoo page and create a league based on the above categories.  Once you have set it up with password: razzball, post the league name and league ID in the comments. As league organizer, it will be your job to set up the league identically to the others, to keep an eye out for hiccups and to be the liaison between your league and the Razzball brain trust.

Each league will have a winner, and each winner will be compared to the other winners to find one uber-winner. Every winner will get a little something, and the giganto-winner will get a bigger little something, EDIT: this handsome jacket (you will feel fantastic). No, the prize is not hair trimmings, that’s weird. It’s a surprise, like an unwanted pregnancy. Anyway, here are your league options (more to be added as/if more leagues are added – remember, password is razzball):

      @James Redacted, I will change it to 7:30 EST but not EDT. I like to give the chrono nerds something to talk about.

      @Mike, It is hidden in there a little bit but the password for all leagues is razzball. “Once you have set it up with password: razzball, post the league name and league ID in the comments.”

        @ChrisV,

        Hey man. Do you mean to say I should publish the league?

        • ChrisV

          ChrisV says:
          (link)

          @Richard, not quite. Under Edit League Settings, there is an option called Make League Publicly Viewable (it is towards the bottom).

          • Richard says:

            @ChrisV,

            League is now viewable man. Draft is now ready for tomorrow

      @Richard, I just took the last spot in Wide Eyed Wizardry, so we’ll need a new commish.

    Some numb-skull dropped out of Pocket Full of Suns(hine). We’re currently at 11/12.

      @Blake Gryffindor, please make sure the league is public so we can keep an eye on the league. It will be glorious.

      • Blake Gryffindor says:
        (link)

        @ChrisV, Should be publicly view-able now and we are completely full for Wednesday night’s draft. Let me know if there’s anything else I need to change.

        • ChrisV

          ChrisV says:

          @Blake Gryffindor, it’s still not showing it for me, but keep in mind I dropped out of 8th grade and work as a rodeo clown getting kicked in the head by bulls.

          Did you go under Edit League Settings and select the option called Make League Publicly Viewable (it is towards the bottom)?

          • Blake Gryffindor says:
            (link)

            @ChrisV, Yeah, I did that. This was posted to the league home page too “PJ (Blake Gryffindor) League made publicly viewable”.

            • ChrisV

              ChrisV says:

              @Blake Gryffindor, Are we talking about the same league? If you run/co-run Wide Eyed Wizardry, I am still getting a message I cannot see it. Anyone else? James?

      Sorry, I saw that Kissing Cousins had one opening so I joined that and deleted the Knicks Bricks league.

    I don’t mind commishing a league…but will it get filled is my hesitation.

    Thoughts please….

    • James Redacted

      James Redacted says:

      @The G, There has been some posters asking about another league so I think it’s worth a shot. At worst you just cancel the draft and its no big deal.

    • Thirlla says:
      (link)

      @The G, I would join play and could maybe recruit another player or two.

      @Allen Sarvinas,
      Just signed up for “Ain’t No Sunshine”, but saw on the Yahoo settings that the draft is scheduled for 9am instead of 9pm. You might want to change that. Looking forward to it!
