Only one member, In Hibernation, has yet to respond. According to the KFFL search he has not posted on any forum since the rookie draft last year. I will give it until Friday night and if there is no response we will look for a new member.
The keeper deadline is set for thursday the 11th. Might want to change that if you're waiting till Friday or set the keepers for the last team
The legend of Doug Atkins was real:
“Look, here’s some things I want you to remember,” Skornoski said. “Number 81 is Doug Atkins, he’s 6’9” and he weighs 265 pounds. He said DON’T CUT HIM, and if he falls down, help him up and say nice play, Mr. Atkins.”
“Well, I (Curry) started to laugh,” Curry said.
“Kid, this is not a joke, and I’m not kidding you now, because if you cut him, on his knees, the first thing he’s going to do is kill you, and then, he’s going to kill me.”
It has been updated to Sunday July 28th, 10 PM CST (11 PM EST), which will be the official keeper deadline. Everyone should make 14 choices as soon as possible (sending me a list or cutting to 14 is also acceptable), and you are always welcome to change them right up until that date and time.
I have given almost a week in the Bears forum to find a new manager. After this much time last year we had 4 responses (3 of which are currently in the league and IHT, who was not a Bears forum poster). This year we haven’t had a response and we need to get this started. I have asked Bill Swerski, who posted on the Bears forum often years ago but hasn’t in a while, to manage the team and he as agreed. Full disclosure: Bill Swerski is my brother. He is in 2 other fantasy leagues I commish and is very knowledgeable with high participation. He fits the criteria of being a Bears forum poster and highly active in fantasy football. If we do manage to make any trades you’re welcome to veto them if you think anything is unfair just like anyone else. I will be posting the rest of the start of the season thread shortly.
