    Alright so there was talk about doing this last year and now I've created a league in Fantrax. I created it for 16 teams. The name of the league is the Bandit Star Wars League. Cost is set at $75.00 per person and I am going to use the Fantrax Treasurer because it's just easier that way. For those of you that have never used it, basically you won't have access to the league until you log in and pay your $75.00. Then at the end of the season I (the commish) tell them how to divide the money to each winner and you can have it transferred to Paypal, leave it in your Fantrax account, or they will send you a check for your winnings and they don't charge any fee, so if we get 16 teams that will be $1200.00 in prize money. It will be head-to-head matchups with 6 teams making the playoffs. It will be full point PPR. It's going to be a live draft sometime in August (date is set for August 12th right now, but that's just because I had to put something in) and we are going to draft 16 rounds with the following starting lineup:
    1 QB
    2 RB
    2 WR/TE
    2 RB/WR/TE
    1 K
    1 D/ST
    1 IDP

    You will notice that you do not have to start a tight end. I am all about flexibility and I hate tight ends, so you can actually play 4 running backs, 4 wide receivers, or 4 tight ends depending on how you want to set the lineup. I just set it at 1 D/ST and 1 IDP so that way anybody that's never done IDP can get their feet wet without feeling like they are drowning. Anybody that wants in will need to send me their email addresses via private message so I can send you the invite because it is set as a private league. Scoring is pretty standard except I do 5 point quarterback touchdowns (always thought 6 is too many and 4 is too few, besides it drives Treff crazy so that makes it worth it). All return touchdowns count for both offensive and defensive players. Small bonuses for long offensive touchdowns for QB, RB, and WR. Decimal scoring. Try to make the IDP scoring as equal as I can for each position so that your defensive lineman with a lot of sacks score the same as your high tackling linebackers and your DB's, but for those that have never done it, just draft a linebacker that makes a lot of tackles. They will always be your most consistent scorers. Team defense scoring is all pretty standard for turnovers, sacks, and touchdowns. The only negative points for yards against is to give up at least 500 yards (-2) and the only negative points for points against is to give up at least 45 points (-2). Any other questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to answer them.

    Personally, I don't mind a league that doesn't NEED to do TE... but I feel like the way you have it it is too RB strong...

    also, the only 1 IDP spot, not a fan of only ONE... But I kind of like it IFF the one IDP must be from the D/ST you start...

    I'll tell you what. Since there are 16 teams, I tweaked it a little bit and now you only have to start 1 RB and I added an extra RB/WR/TE flex so there are now 3 of those flexes. Everything else is set in stone.

    It's a redraft league. I always create one each year, but instead of doing it on Realtime this year, I'm moving it to Fantrax. It's the same one you were in last year @femurov and that you couldn't get in on Realtime because you weren't allowed to living in Washington Harold, but that problem should be solved since I moved it to Fantrax.

    @Chef99 not sure if you are interested this year. Last year your team fell apart early, so not sure if you want to redeem yourself. LOL. Good news though, it won't be on the piece of crap website that is Realtime Sports this year.

    @Ritzarmy @bksballer89 @ehb5 @broncosmitty @TREFF @The Foot @Nosferatu @jwolt92 @Yellow Fuzzies @obxyankeefan @Stomp @averagejoe @FaCe-LeE-uS @tlance @TKOSpikes @Trudem @Ram Tough @Sam Sportboy @Barilko @leftypower @SoShady

    Alright guys. Read the above post and let me know if you would be interested. Last year I waited to start recruiting and ran out of time. Not going through that shit again this year. LOL.

    Steelers is already in. Got 14 spots open. Already have interest from Harold, Femurov, and Milk, but I need them to private message me their email address so I can send them the invite. You will have to pay the $75.00 now in order to join the league, just an FYI.

    That was a guy I didn't know because it was a public league and God I hope not, that guy was such a jackass.

    I am interested but only if we have at least 14 owners. Really don’t want to be in another league of 12 or less owners.
