And I will gladly throw in some infamous "Not Beer" koozies courtesy of Alliance Wakeboard Magazine for the winner.

->> We've been playing this as a group for about a decade, or close to it. Rules have changed slightly, but still basically the same format.

They have another version that's fun, too, a player eliminator game where you can only use a player once in a season. I did it for the first time last year and it was an entertaining diversion.

You can also join more than one group with the same team entry, so you can play in the sportsshooter group and also another group with friends or fans of a particular team and only have to manage one roster.

You can also have more than one team, so you can play in both formats.

Anyway, everybody join up. We usually have 20-25 sportsshooters competing. It's good clean fun, and a sportsshooter tradition going back to the early days of the website.

Thanks Doug

The season starts Thursday night, so be sure and set your lineups.

azbedrockerz, azbracemkr


You can't get in without the password, and I haven't posted an invitation to any other site, so it's gotta be somebody here.

->> ESPN has dropped its Gridiron Challenge game. Looks like one of the oldest traditions of the SportsShooter message board has ceased to exist.

If anyone knows of a similar game elsewhere that a group can play for free please let me know.

->> That's a different game, and a different type of game, picking one winner of NFL games each week until you lose and are out. But would be up for it if a few of you want to give it a go. Kinda late to start now, though, with the first game two days away.
