It’s time to get the epic fantasy football league rolling again. In 2013, the league will consist of the 2012 Champions Bane Sidhe, the Mounds View Meerkats, the RR Redbeards, the Greenfield Grizzlies, the champion of the VP-AFL, and five new team managers. If you have never participated in the VPFL before and would like to take over one of the five open teams in the league, please put your name forward in the comments today. Note that it is a relatively competitive league and in seven years, only the Alamo City/Swamp Spartans have ever repeated as the league champion.
[Long rant about Mounds View’s three first-place regular season finishes and zero VP Bowl wins omitted for reasons of space and blood pressure.]
I’ve already sent invites to the Redbeards and Grizzlies, so the Sidhe and the 2012 VP-AFL champion should email me. Open teams will be randomly assigned; team managers are allowed up to three keepers but are not required to keep anyone. Please note that you are permitted to change EITHER the team location or nickname, but not both, except for Bane’s team, which is always named “Bane X” in memory of the late and much lamented member of the Dread Ilk.
No doubt the bastard was tickled pink at seeing the favored Meerkats denied last year’s championship. He may have even cracked a smile.
