As some of you may know, the stupidest fantasy league ever is a simulated rock-paper-scissors league - the details of which are found here.

The league has eight confirmed participants:

Capt. Gladys Stoatpamphlet
Girlwonder
keisertroll
Milo Minderbinder
pleatherface
RMJ=H
StuartScottsEye
The Amazing Sneijderman

Sorry to anyone who asked to get in and didn’t get an invite. Well, not actually sorry. “Sorry nto sorry”, if you will.

THE DRAFT

The draft will take place over the next 10 days or so; however long it takes, just like the NHL Draft. Below is a list of the competitors in the league, along with one of their current tendencies listed. These tendencies were randomly chosen and randomly assigned. At the start of the season, the average of all tendencies is equal for rock, paper, and scissors, although this will presumably change as managers alter tendencies throughout the season.

Here are the competitors.

Each team manager should send me, by twitter DM, a priority list of at least 15 players (by player number only) that they want to draft. I will go through these lists and conduct the draft accordingly. The draft order was set by a draft lottery that took place in a dingy basement at or near the British Columbia-Washington border, and is as follows:

Draft OrderTeam
1GW
2CGS
3MM
4RMJ
5PF
6KEI
7TAS
8SSE

If you can’t figure out which team is yours, then you are right for this league. Draft priority reverses for rounds 2, 4, and 6 of the draft.

Competition is tentatively slated to begin in the second week of August, which I will confirm after the draft is complete.

Oh, and by the way, the name of the league is the Fake Rock-Paper-Scissors League. That’s the name. If anyone has both the will and ability to make a logo for the league, then according to Aristotlean philosophy, they will do so.
