PostSubject: Windy City Blitz (Mike)   Sat Feb 10, 2018 2:11 pm

1. Who are you? Where do you live?

My name is Mike and I reside in the western suburbs of Chicago.  I'm a 40-something married guy with 2 kids (4yo and 3yo), a dog and 2 cats (they belong to the wife).  For the past 26 years I've worked for a small family owned business.


2. Tell us about your fantasy football experience, including the types of leagues you play in and where they are hosted.

I've primarily played in redraft leagues for the last 11 years on various sites, mostly Yahoo leagues.  I've won 5 redraft championships and have been the commissioner for 1 league until one of my league mates retired and wanted to take over the commish duties.  I'm going into my 3rd dynasty season (1 league) on MFL.


3. Why do you want to be part of Roster Wars...what drew your interest?

After 9 years of playing in 2-3 redraft leagues a year, I was invited to participate in my first dynasty league 2 years ago and I immediately was hooked.  I still like redraft, but the dynasty format is perfect because there is never an offseason.  I was introduced to Roster Wars by a friend.


4. How much time in a typical week do you spend on your fantasy football hobby?

I spend about 1-2 hours a day on the "hobby".  That time mostly consists of listening to podcasts and browsing a handful of websites on the interwebs.


5. Talk about a favorite memory or crazy fantasy football related story.

I'd say winning the inaugural championship in my first dynasty league felt pretty awesome.  There was certainly some luck in the championship run, but it was still easily the best championship I've earned.


6. What do you think members of your other leagues would say about you as an owner?

I think most would say that I'm dedicated to all my leagues and that I may be addicted to making trades.


7. Anything else you would like to add?

Looking forward to the interaction with some other addicts.


8. Are you joining to be a friend of the league or are you looking for the first chance into the fray?

I'm looking to join the league and I will certainly be hanging out to check out and participate in the forums.

Well Mike, jump in and be active. This place is built on that and when the time is right I'll hit you up for next steps and hopefully you work out as well as Keith has. Look forward to getting to know you better.

FYI brother, we have a Marauders already.. not sure about it but might now want to get comfy with the name.. but I'm sure the current Marauders can be swayed to change his name with some extra sweet nectar from the Bee god's

Good eye! How did nobody else say anything?

Maybe it's because Justin is forgettable.  troll

Let me know if I need to change my team name. It sounds kinda like I might be the new guy trying to take somebody's jersey number, which ain't cool.

Nobody care about Justin. (Except for his bees!)


But yeah, you'll probably have to change it. laughing

Same thing happened to me with a different name. No big deal. Just come up with something better and you'll be a step ahead of Justin in no time.]

Well done sir. worship2 I didn't expect anybody to make the connection, but that album is exactly what I had in mind when I picked the name. Absolutely the top hip-hop album and group.
