Need to get to at least ten (maybe eight) by next weekend or I will pull the plug on the league.

Tried to sign up...

There was a problem

* There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. To join, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning. (Error #638)

I appreciate it God, but we're still way way short. Since we're not even close, I've pulled the plug.

I know I'm not in the SOTSG League, but I figured this was the best place for this question:

I'm currently trying to get myself kicked out of the fantasy baseball league I've been in for the last several years. Basically, I'm having a shitty, hopeless season, and I've decided now is the time to use the remainder of my year just to piss people off. Why? Because the old guys who form the core of this league insist on two bad things:

1. We use an antiquated, old-school, season-long roto scoring system. So, someone like me who had a mediocre team to begin with and then suffers a couple of injuries winds up being out of the running by June 1. However, I could live with this if not for . . .

2. We still use Yahoo as our league website. I think Yahoo is great - for free / just for fun leagues. But the entry fees for this league are close to $200 a season. And yet we stick with Yahoo. Why? Because the league records are on Yahoo. Yes, it's as retarded as it sounds.

We had a long debate about switching sites prior to last year, and I pointed out the benefits of CBS Sportsline fantasy sites. To make matters worse, people *agreed* with me. But, ultimately, we didn't move, because someone said that the league's prior standings were all stored on Yahoo, thus trapping us here for all eternity. I explained that it would take 30 minutes to copy over past standings manually to CBS, and added that I would do it myself. Still nothing.

Now I've taken to the messageboards on a weekly basis to run down Yahoo. People in this league do NOT like this. In addition, I've started to tie my dislike for Yahoo into the fact that this is a league filled with fossils (I'm the youngest guy in the league, believe it or not) who are tied to antiquated ways. I upped the ante by declaring myself to be a genius. So far, so good.

Advice: What's my next move? I feel like going some vulgar route and talking about fucking their wives or something would be too easy and ring hollow (since I've never met most of them). I'm thinking more like trading my best players for scrap in order to manipulate the standings to the detriment of those who have been the most pissed off at me might be more fun. Suggestions welcome, however.

start proposing trades (in your favor) that no one in their right mind would accept and see if you get lucky.
