Key Dates: 2011 Brothers Keeper 5 Keeper Declaration Deadline and Draft

Keeper Declaration Day: To Keeper or Not to Keeper?
Okay. We are a keeper lague so maybe it should be titled, "To Keep or Not to Keep?" According to the league Commissioner (M Peltonen) and no one's objection, the 2011 Brothers Keeper 5 Fantasy Football Keeper Declaration Deadline is Sunday August 21st, 2011 at 11:59 PM CST (cf. Section II.D.). Please notify the League Commissioner M Peltonen via email, phone, or verbally in person... or on a wadded up piece of paper written in secret ink... whatever works for you please just do it. Please do this as soon as possible. He prefers that the keepers be declared before August 19th as he will be busy on the 19th. But if you must wait till the 21st you have it. So think of Thursday August 18th as the soft deadline and Sunday the 21st as the hard deadline.

Before keepers are declared we had to finalize the team transfer opportunity as a result of the exit of J Fullerton from the league. M Mohler is now the proud owner of the team formerly known as Kabuki Strikes Back. He has named his team Forever Tide and owns the final roster of Kabuki Strikes Back.

Also if you, too, do not wish to continue playing in the Brothers Keeper Fantasy Football League please contact the League Commissioner as soon as possible in order for Brothers Keeper to arrange a replacement player/owner. There are a number of things that the remaining league owners will need to decide before a replacement is offered to a current final roster as their team (see Section IV.Team Transfers). Please be diligent toward the other Brothers Keeper owners in this regard. The last thing we would like to see is a time sensitive issue disrupt normative league activities like keeper declaration deadlines and drafts. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated and go a long way toward your consideration for a later re-entry into the Brothers Keeper Fantasy Football League if such a need were to arise once older players die off or other players exit. We already have one owner exiting the league and have conduct to fulfill in a time sensitive manner. So please be diligent when the commissioner calls upon you for an answer.

If you would like to review the II. KEEPER DRAFT RULE please consult The Canons of Brothers Keeper Fantasy Football League.

Be sure to take a look at your team's "Looking Ahead 2011" post to see your team's final rosters from 2010. From there you will be able to see each player's 2010 total fantasy starts, fantasy points, 2011 developmental eligibility, and 2011 keeper value. For instance, an undrafted player on your final roster is worth a 15th round draft pick if retained. More information can be gathered there. If you see an error, please contact me so I can check into it and update your team's post to be more accurate. I plan to double check every team's final rosters and keeper values shortly.

Let's face it. We all know late August or early September is fantasy football draft season. We don't need to be embarassed or bashful about it because it is fun. Clear your schedules and just know you need to cancel plans for the draft times. No one likes to draft for you or follow some instructions on a cryptic cheatsheet we can't understand. We'd love to meet you face to face and hope you can join in the fun and maybe we'll eat some food while we're at it. Throw in a few quips about whether R Johnson will make the playoffs and how he plans to fail again and we'll get a rest from our struggles and minial daily lives and have some guy time. What's a tank of gas and a Saturday evening of hanging out with the guys worth to you? Please don't make us pull a Childress and send your 3 closest leaguemates to your Mississippi living room and ask you for a personal favor to attend the draft. We're not beggars. Just because you're from Mississippi doesn't mean you have to be like other Mississippians. O wait that was Brett Favre. Sorry. Don't make us drag you from your home or else we'll call you Brett Favre. Just be there and have fun okay and don't apologize about it. No one will question your love of family for participating in your favorite hobby. You'll be glad you did. We all need some man time with men without kids or ladies. We can scratch and tell stories we can't tell with female types around. So be there. I'm done my plea bargaining and now it is your turn to show up in person.

Following the new 3 Factor Power Ranking Draft Order rule, here is the complete draft order for your viewing pleasure utlizing the current team names:

1. Simba's Buttkicker! (R Johnson)
3. Points ON the Bench (D Kessler)
