Just thought I'd drop by your forums and say hello. I do miss the banter and comraderie of the AAPL. I've been in the Rookie Ball division the last couple years, and while I like the way that it's not competitive I gotta say that it's not all that much fun without any participation in the forums. I've tried to get it going but no luck. Cheddarheads, who's run the division forever, seems like a good guy but even he is quiet other than a post or 2 on the main forums. As for my team, I've used up all my transfers, as usual, but at least I saved my last one till last week this year(just had to have Pirlo!) :) As I said when I left the AAPL, I don't really follow MLS that closely anymore. There's just too many new teams and players. It was way easier back when MLS was only 10 teams! Hey, that said, I think my 353 points would still put me in the top half of the AAPL, so maybe I could still field a decent Colonial Division squad! I'm open to returning if you guys ever have room!

The other thing I was wondering was whether Bob is getting our Yahoo NFL Division going soon. Yes, I'm looking forward to defending my title. Hearts is the team to beat in "The Other Futbal"!

Take care, and good luck to you all in your season! --Lou (or "Jack" as I'm sometimes known, at least on Yahoo...)

Lou! Come back next season. That would be awesome.

I tried something different this year, same 'cortes strategy' in theory, except that I cut up the season into 3 parts. So first 10 weeks I played like normal, then week 10-19 I made a million transfers week 10 and played the next 10 weeks with MY team, then just now in week 20 I made a bunch of transfers to play the rest of the season with the squad I got now (have 4 transfers left over) ...

I think I'll continue doing that in the future, still get to play how I like (with my group of guys, like a real team) but am doing 3 'seasons' in one.

Hey Lou. I will definitely be doing
the other futbol division again this
year. Hopefully get the invites out
soon so I can recruit new teams if
necessary.

Thanks, Matt. I'll hopefully be back. Really do appreciate the invite!

Bob, that's good news. It was a lot of fun last year!

Cheers! --Lou

Lou,it would be great for you to come back next year and I know that there will be at least one opening. We have one dead team in the league at the moment. So, the spot is yours if you want it next year.
