You say you hate me. But what if I'm available late?
You say you hate me. But what if I’m available late?

Come join myself and your fellow Republic members for a Fantasy Basketball League. Bragging rights are on the line, as well as weekly comment ammunition when you beat me or Arse or anyone else and can back up the claims of basketball knowledge superiority!

(Disclaimer: fantasy sports do not accurately reflect real sports, so any such claims should be made in fun.)

Details are below. I’ve set the teams amount to be the max (20) and will adjust roster positions and league settings where appropriate depending on how many people register. It’s a first come, first serve basis, so act now.

Draft Info
Sunday October 28, live online draft, 7pm EST (4pm PDT)
Snake-style, random order determined by Yahoo
1min per pick

Head-to-head, 9 categories (FG%, FT%, 3FG, Pts, Rbs, Ast, Blk, Stl, TO)
Weekly lineups (e.g. no daily changes, you set your lineup for the week – some will hate this, as I do, but a complaint is that daily lineups involve too much time or too little strategy)
Roster: PG-SG-G-SF-PF-F-C-UTIL with 7 bench, subject to change based on registration numbers

  • Matthew Nelson


  • Sam Holako

    I’m down if we do it for money.

    • ME!

      me too

    The daily lineup change should not be an issue.  Yahoo! now has an automatic ‘start active players’ lineup.  If you have time to visit a website and click a button (15 seconds if you are not on dial up!) then you can set your lineup daily now with super ease.

    Just a heads up.

  • Jamshid

    How do you sign up ??

  • Statement

    After the game..Bargnani left early due to the injury and did not speak to the media. Instead he told PR to tell us that he had “left a pot of boiling pasta on. ” at the very least, the guy has a sense of humour.

    That’s hilarious.                    

  • K.J.P

    Yes sir!

  • BlakeMurphy

    Well, that didn’t take long. I think only me and Doc are in this one, so maybe if there’s enough of a demand we’ll do a second one with Arse and Same as well, or something. If you’re still interested and couldn’t sign up please respond to this.

    • James

       How are we able to sign up ???

      • mobchester
