mmm, fan-tasty indeed. sheesh.

That is an awesome word, Ufez. I shall be watching from the sidelines, but you can count on me to insult StarFucker on a regular basis.

I am signed up but consider me the ultimate rookie as I am still learning.

Way to be bold, jason. To be honest with you, I don't know a whole lot of the MLS players right now either, but I'm trying to get back into it and thought this would facilitate that. Who else has signed up? There are two teams there that are unrecognizable by the names.

I'm in, 37 Push Ups.

Thank you. The only team I am familiar with is Kansas because they played a friendly with our local team who might end up being MLS in the next few years. Lets just say I am not picking any Kansas players. They were pretty aweful.

Count me in

well once I manage to log in, they seem to be having some problems right now.

posted by riffola at 12:50 AM on March 25

corpse, are you in the SpoFi Fantasy NBA league? I'm really stymied by those whose team names aren't apparaent via their screen names. Just curious.

posted by Ufez Jones at 03:00 AM on March 25

and why, of all names, 37 push ups?

posted by Ufez Jones at 03:01 AM on March 25

Ok, I'm in - Turnip Surprise. Fantastytabulous. I have no idea who any of the players are except Landon Donovan. Hmmm. can't do any worse than the other league though.

Allright you amateurs... Move over, I am going to sign up right now!

posted by StarFucker at 08:44 AM on March 25

I'm in too, as big perv.

I'm almost there...they wouldn't let me be StarFucker, so i am StarFooker...

posted by StarFucker at 08:58 AM on March 25

Okay, so how the hell does this work? Do we have a draft? Do i just create my team? ?!?!

posted by StarFucker at 09:06 AM on March 25

I don't know about this whole BUYING trades thing... Are any of you guys going to be purchasing trades?

posted by StarFucker at 09:11 AM on March 25

corpse, are you in the SpoFi Fantasy NBA league? I'm really stymied by those whose team names aren't apparaent via their screen names. Just curious. Yep, I was pathetically in there, as Academy of Lies. That was my team name for all my fantasy teams last year, I change it up every year. and why, of all names, 37 push ups? It's a Smog song.

Ok, I am in as hardtimesinwestpho. Are any of you guys going to be purchasing trades? I think I can lose just fine without spending any money...

I'm in... Atlanta Arsenal.

I picked my guys will hate me all season.

posted by StarFucker at 10:29 AM on March 25

I prefer it if nobody purchases trades, but I have no authority to enforce that (that I'm aware of). I know I have better things to spend my money on.

posted by Ufez Jones at 11:06 AM on March 25

I doubt i will need to...

posted by StarFucker at 01:45 PM on March 25

If I finish ahead of anyone, I will publically torture you with endless amounts of humiliation.

corpse, I'm going to be drunk, so drunk, at your wedding.

posted by yerfatma at 05:14 PM on March 25

corpse is getting married? How come I didn't get an invitation? Did any of the Fantasy Leaguers (yes, we are the Fantasy Leaguers, a gathering of Extraordinary Gentlemen ... err, ahem ...) get one? I am feeling left out.

I suppose it would have been more appropriate to mention I'm willing to dress sexy at his funeral (and yes, wear that skirt split up to here).

posted by yerfatma at 06:40 AM on March 26

3 of my friends have joined the MLS league so far... BABG, Bosiak Bashers and Mad Rrhea... I suppose that will be the top 4 at the end of the season, with me at the helm. Owen is going to Italy?!

posted by StarFucker at 08:28 AM on March 26

SF: Where'd you hear that? Also, Beckham to Real Madrid for 40 million pounds?

Zulu Army all signed up and coming to kick your heads in beginning April 5th. Who my players are, who knows? Not me, that's for certain.

posted by squealy at 03:01 PM on March 26

Sweet, we've got 13 teams signed up. I was hoping for at least six. And this is all without a mention in the sidebar. The higher-ups have no love for domestic soccer. Oh, and just to let you all know, I sure as hell don't have time (or intentions) to do some sort of WorldCup-esque weekly update and trash talk threads. If anyone else wants to, fine by me, though.

posted by Ufez Jones at 04:01 PM on March 26

What?! Who else is going to do it?! Where is worldcup?!

posted by StarFucker at 04:18 PM on March 26

Out nicking hubcaps probably. ;-) Fuck where is raed, where is worldcup2002?

posted by squealy at 05:19 PM on March 26

I am here, waiting to taunt you guys. I've half a mind (really, I do) to join in, since some of you are gung-ho enough to play without knowing a thing about the players. But I'm going to take some down time from play once the EPL season is over. Also, down time from reporting and managing the league. Next year, it's StarFucker, the CEO. Or anyone else. I'm off to the peanut gallery.

posted by worldcup2002 at 05:46 PM on March 26

OK, I'm in. Dangling Tits.

Aaargh, you bastard. *Hugs wc2002, but in a manly way*

posted by squealy at 06:08 PM on March 26

Why is the game feckin' broken? I can't do a damn thing but look at your stupid team names.

posted by worldcup2002 at 06:19 PM on March 26

You can't see other teams till it starts i think...

posted by StarFucker at 09:41 PM on March 26

I can't fackin' see my team, let alone buy or do anything with them.

posted by worldcup2002 at 02:16 AM on March 27

?! Well, did you read the rules? I mean, its pretty straightforward... Did you click on buy/sell players?

posted by StarFucker at 08:31 AM on March 27

I clicked on every frookin' link in the left navbar. I'll got try it again today. SHeesh. This sucks. It's almost as wonderful as yahoo! Hahahahaha.

posted by worldcup2002 at 09:44 AM on March 27

Nope. Still craps out: "The game you are trying to access is currently unavailable. The problem should be fixed shortly. Please try again later. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience." And don't call me "Shortly!"

posted by worldcup2002 at 09:47 AM on March 27

It worked for me when I first signed up, although I decided to wait to pick my team until I actually knew anything about the players outside of the US National Team or Dallas Burn.

posted by pfuller at 09:59 AM on March 27

I'm in. The Torn ACLs.

The Scampi of Doom is ready to break new ground in the arena of hopeless mediocrity! Yay!

You in yet worldcup? There are 16 teams!

posted by StarFucker at 10:40 AM on April 01

My team is the Dangling Tits. How'd you like some Dangling Tits in your face? HaaH! Wait until my Dangling Tits are at the top of the table! My Dangling Tits will be on top of all of you! Wouldn't you like to be looking up at my Dangling Tits! My Dangling Tits will crush you! Mmmmmmfffff! Haaaa ha ha ha ha ha!
