    This is a preliminary count so we can determine how many leagues we will need.

    This is not signup or a commitment but an "I'm 95% sure I will commit" headcount.

    I want to ask everyone to please be SURE you will be available and active the entire season. It's very disappointing when team owners disappear and you have a dead team floating around. It hurts everyone.

    I would propose that teams that go inactive for 2 weeks (consecutive or not) be handed off to a new owner and that owner be banned the next season.

    I'm in. That's 1.

    While a year fantasy league ban sounds harsh, it's not really.

    Any owner could find "a taker" if circumstances put the owner in a situation unable to play. That's a reasonable expectation than completely abandoning the team.

    I am ok with the rule, unless the person has had a life event that caused them to not remember. if they have lost a loved one for example.

    Sure. There could be exceptions for real life extreme events.

    Also, as CGI says, an owner can always replace themselves if something comes up.

    Abandoned teams is the only part of FF I can't stand.

    I'm in if you've got space.

    Looks like we've got a lot of entrants, though, maybe we should have multiple leagues?

    Count me in if possible.

    And I do think the 1 year ban is a bit extreme. Passing off the team after 2 absentee weeks is fine. If they don't learn after that, then you can ban them the next season.

    We are using Yahoo (decided by poll) and we will decide how we are going to draft by poll. Right now I'm just trying to get a headcount.
