PostSubject: Woodstock Wyverns (Chris)   Sun Feb 15, 2015 9:30 pm

Hello my fellow fantasy football oficionados. My name is Chris, aka csav44. I live in New England, I am in my mid 40’s and have been playing fantasy sports since the days before the internet. For those of you that could not fathom, the weekly stats were done by comparing consecutive week’s addition of the USA Today. Needless to say, I have been at it for many years. I have run my own leagues for the past 10 to 15 years beginning on Yahoo before moving on the ESPN and most recently, MyFantasy League.com. Like everyone else, I started out in redraft but, after a while, found that it no longer satisfied. Kind of like drinking Coors Light and one day wondering there must be something better. I can’t even taste this shit anymore.  As such, I have been running my own dynasty league for the past 8 years with an equal share of IDP because what is fantasy football without IDP? Today, I went looking for next best thing. Although I do plan to continue my own league, I wanted to expand and found your post on MFL. I have thought about the salary cap format for a couple years and wanted to try my hand. Since I work from home and limit myself to my own redraft/Dynasty league, I have plenty of time to dedicate to becoming your next best member. I love the no nonsense approach, the competitive nature, the IDP inclusion and the graphics of this website…bravo! Is this fantasy football heaven? I don’t know but would like to find out. As for time spent on fantasy football, I would just say that my computer is up and on my lap ~ 16 hours day, my response time is exemplary and I love to trade. I am always up to date on the latest news, even through the offseason and enjoy giving my opinion to fellow members when asked. As for my favorite memory, it’s hard to say. I guess it’s every time you find that diamond in the rough that turns into the player you always thought they would be before anyone else even knows their name. Of course, that is exceedingly difficult now that everyone has the internet 

Welcome to the Roster Wars community Chris.

I bet your ass is freezing right now, you better keep that laptop on your lap so your balls don't freeze. I am the rookie BIOTCH in the league so I will leave it up to the rest of the club to tell you the formalities.

Question: Should Pete Carroll have given the ball to Marshawn Lynch?

Chris, glad you found us!  Stick around so we get to know you.

Also I work for Coors, and unfortunately, I do agree with what you said about Coors Light!  That is why when we started brewing Miller, I was in Heaven because I like MGD and Miller Light a lot better!!

Small world Derrick isn't it. I loved Coors Light through my 20's but alas, all I could taste was that Rocky mountain spring LOL. I finally went into the packy and told my guy as much, but that I loved Coors and he turned me onto Extra Gold. Good stuff!

Corey, I'm glad I could expand your horizon, even if it is in the world of fiction. I have always been a big fan of Dragons, Elves, Dwarves and the like. Spent many years playing World of Warcraft.

Hey Chris, welcome to our forum. So I have never been in that area....where in New England do you live? Doesn't New England cover quite a few places? Married? Kids?

Stick around and keep participating sir. What is a Wyvern? I know I have google but fuck if I am gonna use it.

New England does include NH, VT, ME, MA CT & RI. I come from MA but have lived in CT for 24 years. My family (Brothers/Mom) still reside in MA but I am only 25 minutes away from where I grew up. I have been married for coming up on 23 years now and have 3 children. My son is 21 and I have 2 daughters of 18 and 15. A wyvern is very similar to a dragon. Here is my usual logo:

You wait 'til some geezer comes along wanting to be something close to a gadabout. Like an erm, erm, erm...

Ah fuck it. What's a gadabout again?

Yeah. Chris isn't short for Christine is it...?

Nothing insulting about the word geezer - at least over here anyway - just another word for a bloke. Or fella. Chap. You know, man.

Nope, just Chris. Around here, a geezer is a decrepit old bastard and I am far from that. I am "old" but not that old nono

Hatebreed country! My favorite band.

So Chris, I want to be up front with you that we just approved owners to our last current vacancy. I am hoping this doesn't deter you at all as we are very much interested in you and finding others like us out there. We are committed to you in our prospect process still in the hopes that you will be approved to our official wait list. Once on the wait list, you would get the first team that opens up FOR SURE.

I can tell you in the past that a few have made the wait list and it appeared they had a long wait in store only to have things change quickly and they had a team. We have had more turnover int his league that we ever planned on but with our criteria, it doesn't take much for an owners life to change in a way that leaves less than enough time for the league.

Expansion is not likely but it's also not off the table but obviously we are a rare breed so hard to imagine just a swarm of qualified owners flooding in to the degree that would warrant talking about expansion happening soon.

Hoping you are still interested in being here with us and keep doing what you have been doing. The prospect process is still very much in effect if you want to be here.

Full disclosure... I was hoping when I first ventured in that I would get a team right away. I have since thought it would be in my best interest to hang around for a year to get a grasp of the program. I am willing to carry the clipboard my rookie season in order to be better for it when a team does open up. That is not to say that I don't think I am ready but that I would benefit from learning the ropes of a system such as this so that I can be a better owner. Thank you for your consideration.

but with respect to Jon, a fellow Dragon aficionado, I would change my designation. For that I will have to get back to you. Like I said, I have a few.
