Geesh, ur hard to please!

We each pop in a dollar and the winner or each division and the winner of the Champions Cup gets to spend $5 each at the Smallball mall on whatever they want. If you don't pay your dollar, your prize will go to the runner up.

I dunno, just spewing ideas here....
The last thing we need is this league is having any money involved......................

Quick train tickets would be cool except that I can't get a summary of skill gains, and that would screw up my system.

Actually, I meant to comment on this. The reason why I like the 4 pennant winners and the Cup winner is, IMO, it is much more difficult to win a pennant than the divisional playoffs. You need to be solid and consistent all season to win a pennant, but you only need 2 hot days to win the playoffs. Believe me, I should know. Every time I won the playoffs/Cup, I didn't win the pennant and just got hot at the right time.

Good point. I propose that we do this all retroactive.....

Starting now at 10pm central Friday night I'm going to go thru and play everyone in Premier League of DTSL starting with top team and see who is the first team I beat

Why you might ask? Cause I'm bored as hell cause no one seems to be around (or they don't want to answer the phone) so I'm sitting here on friday night is why

Darkelfs Destroyers are first, game #57246

I'll keep posting games and scores as I do them thru the weekend

Avoid my team, please? I'm trying to keep my record, so that way I can enter ProLeague. Thanks.

Nope. Because the score I beat you were barely, except for first match. You can check it out, I'm Overpaid Players.

WOW That didn't take long to beat a premier team, I just crushed ShaolinBB 8-1 I hope his football team is as weak next week when I play him in the DVDTalk Real league in fantasy football

Going to keep playing teams to see if i can beat any others, next up is Goodfellas game #57539 (I've played him before and he normally crushes me)

I'll drop SmallGuy another e-mail regarding the TP tickets and subtly drop hints about other tickets.

If you guys and gals want to toss in some money to buy prizes then by all means. I'm not going to force any one to do anything. I'd buy a ticket or two as a prize (if I can't get them from SB) but seeing as I can't afford to spend any sort of money that's out of the question.

If it comes down to it and you don't get any prizes donated from smallball, I'll donate something just for fun.

Cheers

was out.. home now, but probably not going to be up long


taking a guess.... if its about the playoff/tournament seeding.. if your holding off on posting the playoff matchups or something and want to just forward the list of playoff teams, so I can do tournament seedings.. you can do it in email (if you dont catch me in the next few minutes).. [email protected]

if thats not what you wanted to get ahold of me about.. and you dont catch me tonight.. Ill be back on IM around 9am est, and should be home all day watching football
