RotoAuthority League Filled; Silver League Open

FRIDAY: We've filled the RotoAuthority League; thanks for all the interest.  Every year we put together an identical league, the Silver League, and the winner gets to join the RotoAuthority League the following season.  This year a fellow named Tyler will run the Silver League.  I'm assuming that all those who commented below would have some interest in this, so I've asked Tyler to just email eleven of you about joining that league.

TUESDAY: Looking for a badass fantasy league in which every team fights tooth and nail to the finish, and there is no arguing about rules or trade vetoes?  Let me tell you about the RotoAuthority League, which is entering its fourth year.

It's a 12-team 5x5 mixed league with 23-man rosters, three bench spots, and two DL spots.  The positions are C, C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF, OF, OF, DH, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, P.  The categories are AVG, HR, RBI, R, SB, ERA, WHIP, W, K, and SV.  Transactions are daily and unlimited.  There is a 1500 inning cap.  Trades go through automatically without needing anyone's approval.  We do a snake draft in Yahoo in which the order is chosen at random by my wife out of a hat.  Trading spots is allowed prior to the draft.

The league costs $100 to get in, and we use LeagueSafe to collect the payment.  Payments must be in by the deadline or you're out of the league!  Typically we do a $900/$200/$100 payout.

The draft takes place on Wednesday, March 23rd at 8pm central time.  Please only apply to be in the league if you can make the draft at this time.

This is not a keeper league, but the top eight teams carry over each year.  A ninth team is added when we take the winner of the Silver League, a separate and equally competitive league hosted on this site by a friend of mine.  That leaves three open spots most years.  There's usually quite a fight to avoid finishing in the bottom four, so teams don't quit on this league.  Only three original members from 2008 remain.

If this all sounds appealing to you, make your case in the comments as to why you should be in this league.  There are no rules, you can approach it any way you want.  The one stipulation is that you must include your email address with the comment so that I can easily contact you if you're in.  If you don't make the cut, don't fret - we'll do a separate post where RotoAuthority readers can get together for leagues.
