Greetings all.

Here is the sign up information

League name: FishingMinnesota

Id#1614

password:wehavemorefun

*************************************

Please read the league rules when you sign up if you haven't played before. Rosters must be completely filled out to receive points. QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,WR,TE,DEF,K make up the scoring. Scoring and salary details can be found when you sign up.

This is a free league available to anyone. Nothing is on the line other than pride. Winner can put 2008 Fishing Minnesota Salary Cap Fantasy Football Champion in their signature line. Lastly, I encourage the same type of information sharing as last year. My plan is to post weekly picks for the week and possible sleepers on this thread. I will probably announce my roster before each week so it won't be any secret you have to wait until game day for. The idea is to play in this league for fun (We have more fun!) and win your other cash leagues with what you learn from others or observe.

Good luck and sign up before September 4!

I'm in.

Biff, salary cap isn't that hard. Last year was my first year and I did really well.

Bad news-You can be in multiple yahoo salcap leagues, but you are stuck with the same roster...I may have to rethink tipping my hand each week frown

Props to the guys that scored big with Rivers, Barber, Parker, or McNabb.

Should be a heckuva season. Don't forget to get your picks in before Sunday. The only time some guys are cheaper was last week, so spend carefully!!!

Kinda nervous with Peterson's sore hammy. Right now Lynch is very attractive, and his team has a great schedule for the rest of the season.

I made a couple changes to free up some cap room. Hated to get rid of Jackson, cause I think Philly has a nice offense and he needs a makeup game for last week's flub (and he's cheap). Also hated to ditch Shockey, cause he might go off with Colston out, but I needed to open up some salary.

I'm hoping to squeak out Brees through Colston's injury, but I have my eye on Rodgers. Weak division and if can keep up with Dallas he'll be okay. Brees I think has more value to the end of the year. Had a great first weak and poor second week.

34 point separate the top 5 of 10 teams. Very competitive group, which is good to see. This is the first week of BYEs (unless you want to count the Hurrican-forced BYE in Houston), so it will be interested to see who elects to keep the value through the BYE or sell a fast riser to get the points.

Starting to wonder if I should have swapped AD and Lynch. I bet he'll have another 2 TD week. But you can never count out Peterson. When he's getting his full workload he will be primed for a 200 yd, 2/3 TD day. Think I'll nurse Cal Johnson through the BYE as I think he's ready for a 8-10 TD year.

I'm debating on selling Peterson also. But just when I'm ready to click the button to make a sale, I always remember that he could easily go off for 200 yards and 2 TD's any week.

Can you really say that about any other back right now?

If anybody's looking to shake up their roster in a big way, Rashard Mendenhall is getting the start in Pittsburgh.

Anybody's league, but I like my chances seeing how I slipped about 4 guys through the bye weeks and nobody made me pay!

Well, I stayed the course, thousand points of light, won the league going away. Michael Turner, Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, and Calvin Johnson were guys that I figured would have good years and were relatively inexpensive. Overall my philosophy is changing...you can't pick the hot guy each week without stumbling a few times, so you're better off sticking with a guy the whole year. I made that mistake last year when I figured Wes Welker would get 8 TDs and 1000 yards. Well, after week 5 he had only 1 TD, so I cut him. Well, he got to his numbers, I just wasn't patient...and it cost me first place. I settled for runner up. Points are cumulative, so you have to take your licks. You won't be high score every week, but you'll be consistent. I think I was high score 3 or 4 times, but I consistently performed well.

I don't know if I'll do a FM league next year. I liked it better when we shared our perspectives going through the weeks, who we thought was primed for a big week, who was cheap but would break out for a week, rookies, new kickers, etc. Since you can only have one Y! team, we had to wear poker faces and hide our hands. With the way the economy is, I'm glad I won my money salcap league this year...I think I'll have a few new reels on my Christmas rods!

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
