Okay, sports fans - anyone who's interested in playing give me an affirmative in the combox on or before April 29. Based on the interest level back at AoftheA, I think there's enough people who want to play.
Submit your team names as soon as you come with one. I'm going with The Crusading Croziers.
Sunday May 8 2011 is Draft Day for the inaugural season of Fantasy Bishball, with the season opener the week of May 15th. The draft will have to be coordinated at a specific time on May 8 (probably late evening, 11:00 PM EST or so) and will most likely be run through a site called Cover It Live (courtesy of Dr K, over at the Cleansing Fire blog). If you already know you won't be available on that date...well, I think it's going to be hard to find one day at one time that everyone will be able to attend. I don't think it will take all that long - teams will be 4 bishops at most, maybe only 3 depending on how many participants there are. So - check your calendars and see if you can make that date and time. If you can't, try and find a proxy to do your draft.
I hope to have a list of all active North American bishops published beforehand for everyone's convenience.
Draft order will be published on or before April 30th.
Also - all league members will have publishing access to Fantasy Bishball. In case you want to talk smack, y'know?
I'm still figuring out the best scoring system. There might not be a best way, and we'll just have to make it up as we go. Any reasonable ideas will be considered. The main thing is to keep it simple and fun.
I'm figuring the season will last until the end of Ordinary Time. Seems as good a time as any.
