DVDTalk SmallBall League.. Come on, you know you want to, all the cool kids are!

Check out the current SmallBall thread http://dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread....5&pagenumber=1

its about time to join in!
come on guys.. its a hell of a lot of fun, and only takes a few minutes a day to maintain a team (although it might take a little more, once your addicted )
we have over 40 solid teams already.. but there are too many other big sports fans in this forum, that arent playing..

no worries about having to catch up.. we have divisions based on skill.. so you get to start out at a weaker level anyways.. and work your way up..

and as Ive said before.. its MUCH easier to catch up to everyone, then it is to pull away when your ahead with smallball


besides.. it will give you something to do, in between posts

signup for smallball and download the software at http://www.smallball.com

then signup for the dvdtalk league at
http://www.sd-1.com/smallball/signup.php

you can also check out the great page that dancinns and thor has put together for the dvdtalk smallball league
http://www.sd-1.com/smallball/index.php


That is, if you're not chicken!

Hey now.. don't be scarring away all the potential new players with stories of what you do with your poultry in the privacy of your home..

Besides, that's what I get when I cut-n-paste a twikoff post..

See non-DTSLers this is what you all are missing out on! It's not so much about that the games. It's all about the trash talking, good natured fun that we all have. You too can learn the meaning of "DarkElfing it" or what it means when "das must be training". You can also learn to hate Monday morning not for work but for also SmallBall.

Besides, I need to destroy more lives...muwahahahahaha. Err, I mean I uh....

I assure you this is not a euphemism for anything involving anyone's "chicken."

How many of the over 100 views do you think were from DTSL members?

There has to be somebody out there who wants in, isnt there?

Would the mods allow recruitment of Other? I bet there's someone there that would want to join that normally doesn't come to the Sports forum.

As evidenced by this unfortunate quote there is quite a bit of anti-chicken sentiment in smallball, but don't let that stop you from joining! My Thunderchickens enjoy getting spanked each and every season!

Ummm.... Maybe there should actually be some content on that "great page".

If there was, I'd link to it in my sig. Just some static "Welcome to the league page" with links to smallball.com, and the steps to sign-up, etc.

[edited to add:]
...to answer the inevitable questions of 'Now what?' like the one that follows.

Perhaps the page header that says what season we are in could include a date range so anyone looking can tell if we are at the start, begin, end, etc., since without login info they wouldn't see the team schedules...

Just my $.02.

TeeSeeJay,

Try reading through what is posted at:
http://sd-1.com/smallball/news/000003.html

Even though it was written by me, it still might be helpful. The current season just started yesterday, so it will be almost 2 weeks before the next one begins. That will give you an opportunity to train your players to hopefully be a much stronger team by then. Your second star will come in 1-2 days (using DT, read the link I posted for more info) and I'd expect you'd be pushing 4 stars by then.

A change since it was written is that the "training potential", or rotating pies under each player during a training session, now hold twice as much as they did then. So, your players on the bench will restore this potential in 24 hours, and your starters in 48 hours. (though the benchies will lose skills faster as well)

Hope that helps!

bumping this again for the new season coming up on Tuesday.

Since twikoff isn't here....
Join today and you can finally have a method to shut up twikoff. Just beat his team over and over and over and over just like the rest of us.
