I'll open the league up to the public if we don't have enough people. Feel free to invite friends.
The major change I added this year is how players are picked up when they go on waivers. Here is a description from the ESPN website (My input in italics):
FREE AGENT ACQUISITION BUDGET Free Agent Acquisition Budget, or "FAAB". This waiver system is a blind auction open to every team within the league.
In an auction bidding environment, players who move to waivers after the league draft, players who are dropped, or players added to the player pool during the season become waiver-eligible for the timeframe set by the league creator (1 day for our league). However, instead of placing a traditional waiver claim, an owner places a bid they feel is appropriate based on a player's value. The league creator assigns the pre-determined budget of each team for waiver bidding over the course of the season ($100). During the auction waiver period, team owners may bid at any time before it expires. In an auction bidding environment, no player on the waiver wire is a Free Agent (FA). The bidding is an open process and there is no sequence for the bids. Team owners may bid at any time during the waiver period, before it expires. When a player clears waivers, the FAAB bidding ends for that player and they become a Free Agent (eligible for first-come, first-served pick-ups).
In the event of bids of equal amounts for a player by two teams (a tie), waiver order priority determines the winner of the player. During the waiver period, no team can see any other team's bids or bid amounts. All teams can view FAAB results after the waiver release time, either on the league home page or the "Free Agent Auction Report". Additionally, all teams can view other team budget balances on each team clubhouse and waiver order pages.
You only get $100 for the entire season, once you run out of $$, you can only pick up players by bidding $0 or waiting until the auction ends.

I grew up on oldies. One of the most exciting moments of my youth was getting picked up from pre-school in my dad's '57 Chevy Nomad. Purple paint, windshield wipers that moved like they were about to lose a job, and no seat belts. This is where I learned about music. I didn't have to deal with misinformation from Wayne Coyne (The Soft Bulletin and less) or the douchebaggery that is the Cold War Kids. It was the Beatles, The Doors, The Stones, and Bob Seger. I have no idea how I turned into a indie hipster douchebag.
I'm the person that played ? and the Mysterians at my wedding reception just because we were at a Mexican restaurant.
We tend to follow bands that press play or cancel shows because Zach Hill and Stefan Burnett can't get along. We eat drugs and convince ourselves that Sigur Rós is the best band that ever existed.
HG will talk about The Residents and his hatred towards U2, badchoices will turn us onto new metal bands, nick will be a dick; but where is the love for Steppenwolf, Etta James, and Boyz II Men?
I grew up on oldies from the radio; I can't be the only person that has a sentimental feeling towards them.
