Thanks all I am just a perfectionist in everything I do. I am going to keep at it and maybe take a lesson or something.

Filled vacancies can be tracked by following the league's announcements thread, but don't let filled vacancies prevent you from signing up, because we'll need to generate a pool of substitutes, as well.

Vic, I started the discussion thread, and I can't determine a starting date until I know how many teams I have, anyway, so that's the state of things right now.
