Fair enough... I guess that's my argument, although it feels a little spun when you say it that way and I think you're over stating how much time I spend with this stuff.  It's not like I'm spending an hour a day on fantasy sports. 

The leagues are just feeling a little stale and uninteresting to me compared to these other ones I'm in and I was thinking everyone else might enjoy something that (in my humble opinion) has the potential to make everything more engaging and interesting.  Sounds like I was probably mistaken.

I'll go with whatever direction the group wants, but I simply don't have the time to manage a game like this.  That's just the reality of my situation, so my vote is for status quo. 

That said, I don't see it going ahead for hockey as none of the Canadians in the pool watch their fantasy teams that closely.  Not sure if you were including that or just thinking basketball.  I will bounce it off the guys that I know directly though, perhaps I'm in the minority there too.

To me quite frankly, that's what makes the hockey league pretty boring.  No one pays attention... you set the thing up, check it once a week to see if someone got injured and you missed it, and if you happen to be way behind 2 months in, you might as well hang it up because you're too far behind and don't have a chance of sneaking into the playoffs and getting hot at the right time.  Basketball and baseball are a little less so since they're at least rotisserie. 

The games played in baseball drives me insane every year.  I have no idea how you guys use your games up, I'm -20 in the OF and UTL and I the rosters aren't big enough for me to have enough guys to make up the difference without failing to use my innings...

A Rotisserie that's also Head-to-head solves all this stuff and is way more entertaining, and interesting once the playoffs hit.  I couldn't feel more strongly about it now that I've tried both ways.  Instead of a maximum number of games you have a maximum number of adds every week, and a minimum number of innings pitched or goalies started...

I'll take status quo. H2H adds too much luck and dice roll, there's enough of that already in roto with the injury lightning bolts that randomly strike.

How so?

Now that I'm playing in both type of leagues, quite frankly I find our leagues outside of football to be really boring.

Injuries are part of sports... you could lose your star player in the playoffs, it's true... but you could just as easily see your opponent lose their star player and it helps you.  That kind of stuff is just dumb luck.

Would be easier to stay interested too.

That's the big thing for me too... you can always focus on the individual week and to me it's much more engaging doing head-to-head.

Not every kid will have $100+ to drop on a bmf.  Falcon frenzy will need satiated.  I think kids will like something like this then.  I don't buy kids might.

$100+  If there's a BMF available for under $175 I'll be shocked.

Like Brent, I bike.  That's my main thing.  I rode 137 this past week but I average a little less than him... about 90 miles per in the seasons not named Winter.  It dips to about 50 on average in the winter depending on the snow. 

In the spring I ran a 5 miler... I've never been much of a runner - so that was an accomplishment of sorts.  I like to hike and paddle around in kayaks (but don't do either terribly often).

Basically, no - I don't play sports, but we try to be active.

TRU had Biker Scouts for $20 as well.  Seems like everyone (except Wal-Mart) is moving the old stuff out completely.

Everything that's left is on a clearance aisle.  If you want Jabba for $17.50, now's your chance.

Near as I can tell, the flocked thing is some other method of application for his fur.  Not sure if it's soft, or just a different texture... or something sprayed on, but it's not just regularly molded plastic.

I'm hoping we'll know far before the night of the event. If it is the case, I'm east coast, plan to attend and will surely post for the folks in other time zones.

Define 'far before' the event.  9/4 is a measly three and a half weeks from now.

I've only seen T2 figures once, and it was at at TRU.  I've turned to eBay more times than I'm comfortable with this line... just recently I've gone there for Mr. Miyagi with the headband, T-1000 with the hook arms, Bloody Jaws (found him a few days later), and T-1000 with hole in the head (didn't know he'd be at TRU)...

Still need to get the T-800 with battle damage, the chase Sarah Connor, the Japanese Marty McFly with Einstein, Flocked Wolfman, MOTU....

Picked up the exclusive "Arcade Version" Predator off eBay this morning. Got "hatless" Sarah Connor earlier in the week. The work continues...

Oh man... I've been looking for the Chase Sarah Connor for weeks.  Can't find the regular non-frozen T-1000 with the Patrolman's helmet either.

Being logged in didn't make any difference for me...

Black Series 3.75" figures not quite dead yet?

I supposed there is always a chance that these pegs will be where the left-overs from those new Wave 7/8 shippers at Walmart will go... but nice to think there may be some new Black Series 3.75" stuff after all.
