Be aware that as League Manager I can veto any trade/trades that I deem unfair. However, good luck with finding an owner in this competitive league to trade with ! LOL [duh]

Halfway through the season and there is no clear league leader. The competition is very fierce and the replacements are hard to find . Good Luck to All !!

I now take this opportunity to again invite all of the 2014 Tailgaters Fantasy Football League's Team Owners to return for the 2015 Season. In addition to posting here in this thread, personal/official invitations will also be sent via ESPN.

The 2014 Season proved to be most competitive. I salute all team owners on a job well done and will look forward to your RSVP replies .

I fully intend to discuss the Leagues' Draft with all Team owners. Every owner will have their position in the draft randomly chosen as usual. Trades may take place following the draft.

I regret that last seasons draft was inconvenient for some members, but as League Manager I had to do what was best for the most Owners. Hopefully this Seasons Draft will be accessible to all of the Leagues Owners.

Finally , I believe that as we enter our 3rd Season, that the League should award a real trophy to the Leagues' Champion. I will propose to the league that a non-refundable $10.00 fee be received from each team owner prior to the leagues' draft. Furthermore I will propose that a League Treasurer be elected to receive, manage the money, and to purchase and ship the Champions Trophy to the 2015 League Champion.

All ideas shall be open for debate and voted on by the league owners prior to being adopted.

Return for the 2015 Season and compete again. Are you a Player or a pretender ? LOL All will again have a fair and equal chance to compete. Again I must applaud and thank you and PackZ for taking over those teams last season.

As we approach our 3rd Season, I feel confident due to the competition last season, that the league now has a full roster of owners that many other leagues wish that they had. I hope that I may be able to count on you and all the others to return for the 2015 Season. I believe that this season will prove to be a lot of fun and very competitive.

Personally, I wish you all all the best in your recovery of good health. Take good care of yourself, The Tailgaters Fantasy Football League needs you !

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the 2015 Tailgaters Fantasy Football Season has officially begun. I welcome all team owners and encourage all to participate again this season. An e-mail has been sent to all owners and reply's will be welcomed.

The Draft will be set after league owners have had chance to discuss a Day/Time. I will be informing ALL Owners of any developments as needed.

Team,"Hamberg Sea Devils", the 2014 Tailgaters Fantasy Football League's champion will not be returning for the 2015 Season. As a result there is currently an opening for a team owner in the league. Anyone wishing to compete in the league's 2015 season in that open slot, please contact me and arrangements can be made. The ten team league should enjoy a most competitive and fun season.

The Tailgaters Fantasy Football League salutes it's 2014 Champion and wishes him well.

The managing of a fantasy league calls for ensuring that fairness and good sportsmanship are respected at all times. As League Manager I have not found it necessary to veto any trades to date. It is the League Managers job to recruit, set the draft, and ensure fair play. I have always done just that. This League is for fun and as well as competitiveness, as a result I have found it necessary to expel and replace owners due to their abandoning their teams.

Tailgaters Fantasy Football is not a "Cutthroat" League. We don't play for money, or take advantage of other owners. There are plenty of those Leagues if that is your style. Each team starts fresh every season and no trades are allowed until after the League Draft takes place. All teams compete according to the skill or lack of skill of their owners.

This League is not in competition with other leagues, so we wish those leagues well. Our rules of play are set forth by ESPN and not made up to give advantage to any team. As Founder and League Manager I started this league to escape just such a league. The payoff in our league is making new friends, gaining bragging rights, and winning the leagues championship. As League Manager, I must administer to operation of the league and ensure it's integrity.

Oh relax. Send ole Smokey a ham sammich and you will always get good trades!

I kid of course. I like more fantasy leagues out there because it is fun. I barely have enough time for the one little league we have for PackersHome. I somehow continue to find away to always finish better than Dhazer every single year and that man lives, bleeds and cries fantasy football!!

Ok...my post was regarding the fact that it is up to you to deem a trade unfair. I know exactly what running a league entails, as I ran 3 leagues simultaneously over the last 6 years. My point is, it shouldn't be up to 1 person, it should be put to a league wide vote. Also, over my time I have seen many trades that look unfair initially, only to find out a few weeks later that it was probably the opposite. Because of this I find it almost completely unnecessary to ever veto any trade.
