I am in as usual - if there are openings my brother in law (Motown) is interested, also as usual :D

For sure keeping Adrian Peterson and Andre Johnson - not sure about third slot yet though at this point.

(not my turn yet, depends 8) )

Call me stupid, but I'm keeping Big Ben. I'd like to keep RIcky Williams, but my intelligent half keeps beating on my skull.

Of course, I reserve the ability to change my mind until the deadline.

Loved that movie so much as a kid, but it sure hasn't aged well IMO. It was kinda a letdown seeing it again a year or so ago after so long and hyping it up to my wife who hadn't seen it. I sure do love the "I see you Schwartz is as big as mine" and the "I'm surrounded by jerks!" parts!

Wow keeping Big Ben! :o Then again: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=a ... hlisberger

Okay, I have no idea what roster I was looking at when I made my selections. Strike those from the record, and I'll make my pick when my time comes.

Sorry about that, all.

I know, but I wanted to delete my reminder and didn't want to forget who I wanted to keep. Consider it posterity for the feeble.

It seems like from a couple of the posts here, and a PM I got, that some of you think that there is an order to announcing of keepers. This is not the case. You can announce them early, as some of you have done. You can wait til the last second to announce them, as some of you appear to be doing. As long as you announce before the deadline, all is well.

Ok, carry on. I'm going to go back to watching The Boondocks. Uncle Ruckus is the ****.

OK then - I just thought that if someone that was toward the end of the non-existant order might have an advantage in deciding to possibly leave a slot open to specifically grab a guy that someone ahead of them in the order decided not to keep. So for that reason I thought maybe there *should* be an order that these keepers are announced, to keep this possible advantage in line with the draft order.

After giving it more thought, I just cannot pass up on keeping all three of these players:

Adrian Peterson
Andre Johnson
Frank Gore

In my offline keeper league, we e-mail the keepers to the commissioner who then does not open the e-mails until after the deadline (and yeah, we trust him not to). That way, NO ONE knows who is keeping who until after all keepers are in. When we first did this league several years ago, I told people to PM me and I wouldn't open them until after the deadline was past. Over the years, people just sort of drifted away from that. *shrug*

I think that was important the first year... now, it's kind of pointless, since for the most part, it's obvious who is being kept...

1. Druidcent: Maurice Jones-Drew, Antonio Gates, Calvin Johnson
2. mattsteg: Rashard Mendenhall, Larry Fitzgerald, Sidney Rice
3. PRIME1: Peyton Manning, Steven Jackson, DeAngelo Williams
4. idchafee: Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Ryan Mathews
5. Corrado: Michael Turner, DeSean Jackson, Vernon Davis
6. Captain Ned: Ben Roethlisberger, Cedric Benson, Philip Rivers
7. LFK: Drew Brees, Greg Jennings, Roddy White
8. Frobozz: Adrian Peterson, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore
9. Kevin: Miles Austin, Chris Johnson, Reggie Wayne
10. Rolling20's:Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Ray Rice

I went ahead and took mattsteg's keepers. Yes he was late and yes I could have denied them. This isn't the Big Time here, I see no need to be a hardass unless someone really has a serious issue. And by serious issue I mean they can produce a scenario where his turning in keepers late gave him some real advantage not just "OMGNOTFAIR!!"

Corrado never turned in any keepers, guess that means that he doesn't want to keep anyone? :-?
