Welcome to the Unofficial DBN Fan League for 2011. This is for anyone who loves fantasy football and is also active on Dawg's By Nature, but didn't get the opportunity to play in the official league. The Unofficial league will be ran on Yahoo! Sports with the default scoring system, and a live draft! The league's main page can be found here: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/dbnfans2010 (I understand it's 2011, but the link still works.)
The current date for the live draft is set to Sunday, August 21st @ 9:30pm. But this is subject to change if most want it to. By the way, I'll be keeping Yahoo! default settings that make it so the draft order is electronically randomized approx. 30 minutes before the start of the draft.
I will be active commissioner for the league, but the power is still in the hands of the players as a whole. Trade veto's will be done by league-wide vote, and any action I make is entirely visible to every player.
I also plan on having occasional write-ups about the state of the league and fantasy football in general every so often. There will definitely be a playoff preview as well as a season re-cap.
If you're interested please leave a comment below. Priority will be given to regulars and returning active teams to promote the most active league. Currently the maximum is set to 12 (But don't forget there will likely be The Rebel 3rd League looking to fill 12 slots shortly as well, don't feel down if you don't make it in one of the few remaining spots). Remember, this league is completely free, and you will be playing for only bragging rights, but who doesn't love bragging rights?
After you've been selected, I'll email you the password as soon as I can, and when your team is created I'll add your name to the list:

10. emily522 - (Brownie the Elf)
11. bross09 - (RandallPFloyd QB)
12. brownsboy14 - (Colt's Cowboys)
I've decided to expand it from 10 to 12 in order to allow for the most fair end of the season interleague championship. There's also been higher demand to play than last season as well. I'm certain the Rebel 3rd League will have no trouble filling up 12 slots as well. Which brings me to the following point: the 3rd league still needs a commissioner! It's not a difficult job, however fantasy football experience is recommended, most preferably, a regular (not yet in a league) that doesn't mind making the FanPost. Having no commissioner could potentially derail this third league, which wouldn't be any fun.
Congrats to The Brown Note for winning last seasons UDBNFL championship and being promoted to the official league.
If you have any questions or comments whatsoever (i.e. scoring, drafting, scheduling ect.), let me know. Plenty of this is subject to change if there is a large enough request for it. Also, feel free to continue discussion of the 3rd league and the details of this final championship.
Lastly, active players only, please.
[UPDATE] - We are now full. If you didn't get again but still want to play, remember to express interest in the Rebel 3rd League.
