:party-smiley-050: Back by popular demand, no a random PM inquiry! my demand, The 13th 14th Annual Kicker/Defense Challenge. :party-smiley-050:

I completely cribbed this from last years post, but here are the details:

DO NOT DRAFT then post your league. You MUST post your league here beforehand then draft.
and finally, once the season starts, this thread will move to Sand Wagering. It's only here in Main to attract more interest.

Same rules as last year. You have to join a Yahoo Public Competitive League and use your first two draft picks to pick a kicker and defense. Whoever wins their league wins the sand. If you are interested in playing this year, just post in this thread. There will be a $1000 sand entry fee and all sand collected will go to the winner.

Anyone who pays is a contestant. There will be no limit to the number of sharks who can play, but every shark can only have one entry. The league id must be posted prior to the draft, and once the draft starts, they are locked into that team. No starting over (unless it gets totally messed up where the first two picks don't go kicker/defense). It must be a public league that everyone can view. If we can't see your league, then you signed up for a private league and that entry will not count.

Whoever goes the furthest wins the pot. If more than one shark wins, the pot will be split between them.

I'll start us off by saying I'm playing. My $1000 sand is in. I will probably draft after week 3 of preseason games are done.

Everyone should be playing in "Casual" leagues.

You can join the competition right up until the week before the season starts, as long as you post your team name, draft date, and league ID before your draft starts.



Post your league id and team name in this thread so I can add links to the league in this post.

The only way I will change this is if the league does not fill up, currently at 3/10 ppl.

I'll try again. I think I was winless until week 8, though it wasn't because of my lack of 1st and 2nd round picks. All my 3-5 guys got injured, so I was battling the waiver wire for warm bodies.

It's always funny reading the comments when I do this.

Sometimes I explain what I'm doing and sometimes not
