The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Football season is here again. Thus: NEW FANTASY LEAGUE SEASON!!
    This is our 3rd year running.

    It is a FREE Yahoo Sports fantasy football league.


    LIVE DRAFT: Sunday September 3rd, 7pm EST
    (you can preselect/rank players if you can't make the draft).

    RULES:
    16 teams max

    Head to head scoring

    Playoffs in Week 15 and 16

    Roster Positions: QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, K, D, D, D, DB, DL, DL, BNx10
    (this means that you must start the named positions and you have 10 Bench slots for backups). We play with IDPs (individual defensive players).

    I have won this league the last two years running and I'm looking for a challenger to take me down.

    I have also kept track of who has signed up and then dropped out in midseason in the past. If you're going to bag on the league DON'T BOTHER JOINING. It makes it suck for everyone else if you quit midseason.

    THE PRIZE:
    1) Bragging rights, of course
    2) I'm putting up a tub of Nitrean from AtLarge to start. We'll see if anyone else can man up and contribute to the loot.



    HOW TO JOIN:
    Post here or PM me.

    Note: We must have an even number of managers to play. If we wind up with an odd number of managers the weekend of the draft, I may have to cut whoever joins last.

    So, like, don't join last.

    The 3 'D's are Individual Defensive Players that can be from any position.

    So D, D, D, DB, DL, DL
    translates into the bit that you must field:
    1 Defensive Back (or safety)
    2 Defensive Linemen (or linebacker)
    and
    3 Defensive players from any position

    Clear as mud?

    I'd like in. I quit midseason last year due to the fact half the damned league was MIA...I swear I only saw like 3 or 4 teams changing their line-ups week to week.

    It's so disheartening..
