    If you want in, state your intentions in this thread.

    You'll need a Yahoo! ID if you don't have one.

    Tell me if you're in and give me your Yahoo! ID in case I need to use some sort of invite thing.

    12 teams is ideal, but I don't really know if Yahoo! has a limit or not, so if we go over I'll figure something out.

    And since I just thought of it and I posted this in the ad in the other forum:

    Done.

    I'm setting a deadline of Friday for signups, because now we have enough to do this as is. Ideally I would like to get 2 more or so by then, but if not 10 is a pretty decent size for a league.

    That's 11.

    Draft time? Any ideas, anybody?

    I feel like making it August 1st at 6PM Central Time, but I'm very open to suggestions. And that's like midnight or something for Green_Bay_Packers.

    So, post your ideal times and ideal days and I'll try to see how best to accomodate everyone.

    I can go any time on the weekend, or if its a weekday it can be before 8am or after 8pm.

    Also, will invites be sent or do we just have to look for the league to join? I've only played the nfl.com version before so Im not familiar with yahoo

    I'll create the league, then you go to the league's URL and enter a password to join.

    The password will be sent to you in a private message whenever we get the draft date and time settled.

    I work till 5:30 EST, which means i can't participate until after 4:30 Central

    How do we pick who picks first anyway?

    I'm pretty sure Yahoo! randomly generates the draft order.

    Rob and ivo610, I need your emails to send you an invite. Please and thank you. :)

    Everyone else, I think, an invite has been sent to the email you provided in this thread. Please check it out. If you didn't get one it's because I'm dumb and missed your name. Please tell me if you didn't get one.
