    Greetings everyone!

    It’s that special time of the year, again! Hoop Ball Reader/Listener Leagues are BACK for 2018-19!

    We will be hosting cash leagues (all $50 buy-in unless otherwise specified) and free leagues, both head-to-head and roto, at Fantrax.

    The venerable Neil Rochlani is handling sign-ups, and there are a couple ways to join a league:

    1) Post your interest here in this forum thread.

    2) Follow @BallwithNeil, @hoopballfantasy & me (@danbesbris) on Twitter, and then send us a note that you want in.

    3) Post in the Hoop Ball Facebook group.

    LET’S GO.

    This year I’m gonna refrain from drafting 80% of the Wizards starting lineup solely because I thought it would be funny.

      Hi Frank,

      Unfortunately our leagues are not that deep. Our head to head is 12 team deep and our roto league will top out at 14 (but may end up with 12). If you are still interested, just let me know I will send you the link to join.

    Hey all –

    Neil will get all of you placed shortly. But a reminder, we only have 9-cat, h2h and roto (cash and free) this season.

    We will likely expand offerings for next year.

    Also, I’m considering starting a second thread in the forum to gauge interest on a 2nd HB dynasty league. But we’d need volunteer commissioners since we’d be overextending a bit.

    As I noted, there will likely be slow drafts, just ones that take, say 2-3 days instead of 2-3 weeks. It’s very hard to keep an eye on that many drafts over that length of time, so we need to keep things moving along.

    But if that’s okay for you guys (sorta-slow draft), then come on in!

    Interested in a 9-cat money league, preferably drafting within a few days, but if not, still interested.

      We don’t have any cash leagues open. Just a free 9-cat roto league with a few of spots left. If you are interested please let me know your email address and I will send you a link to join. Conversely, follow and tweet @ballwithneil and I can DM you the link. Thanks.

    Yikes! I’m late to the party, it seems. If anything’s still open or will open up, drop me a line! Thanks!

    Shout out to Neil for the clock adjustments in Roto 2. We were taking the term ‘slow-draft’ into uncharted territory and not in a good way. Now we’re getting somewhere! 🙂

    Neil is on top of it and we’re texting about any issues. It’s important to give people the chance to show up, but if they prove they can’t be counted on, then we’ll act.

    Hi guys, in roto1 we still have 4 full rounds and we are sometimes waiting for an entire day for one pick to happen. Can we do something about it? Or do you think we still have time for that?

    Neil will turn off the pause timer and it’ll just be a running clock all day.

    Not kosher to switch rules after draft has started.
