So, for those who haven't done this or the memories have faded, this is your chance to choose a player you want sponsor for the 2013-14 season. You talk them up, follow their stats, etc. They are your boy.

The way this works is that on September 3, at 6 PM EASTERN, bidding will start. Each person will have five points. If at any time a player has five points bid on him, he becomes adopted by that poster. If a bid stands for 24 hours from the posted time, that player becomes adopted by the poster with the winning bid.

An example:
At 6PM, Poster A puts 5 points on RG3. Griffin immediately becomes the property of Poster A. Poster A now has no more points and can bid on no more players.

At 6:05 PM, Poster B put 1 point on Albert Morris.

At 6:10 PM, Poster C put 3 points on Albert Morris. At this point, Poster B regains his one point since he has been outbid.

If no one bids on Morris again by 6:10 PM on September 4th, Poster C adopts Morris.


Some people like choosing one guy and making him their guy. Others like to spread their points around and have multiple guys. Choice is yours.


TAKEN PLAYERS
Brian Orakpo - turtle28, 5 points
Bacarri Rambo - TKellion, 5 points
David Amerson - THESKINSFAN21, 5 points
Robert Griffin III - daboyle250, 5 points (who would have thought he'd be the fourth player to go?)
Ryan Kerrigan - DCRED, 5 points
Alfred Morris - Woz, 5 points


CURRENT BIDS FOR
killacam, [Posted: Tue Sep 03, 2013 7:09 pm] = Pierre Garcon, 2 points

MikeT14, [Posted: Tue Sep 03, 2013 8:05 pm] = Darryl Tapp, 2 points (you bid 2 points a minute after Thai, but missed the "no touchie!!" message ... call me suspicious Wink Laughing ); DeAngelo Hall, 1 point; Will Montgomery, 1 point; Joshua Morgan, 1 point

Can You guess who I want? Laughing

Not sure if I'll drop 5 points like his rookie year or do like I did last year and pick up Cousins and some others. Either way: HTTR!!!

If it weren't the Labor Day weekend coming up, I'd be willing to move it. However, with people out of town, it would probably be unfair.

Now, if more people have an issue with that date, speak up and I'll consider it.

You don't have any responsibilities...... It's more like bragging rights to be able to talk smack about your player, or not. You decide.

Alot of people track their stats or get sigs of them, some people pick more obscure players. You can have your own mini- team or pick your star player....... Enter, Thaiphoon:

Rule #... ok well we'll just call this the "Thai Rule".

No stealing my misfit toys!!!

Bad things will happen to you if you do. Basically on par with what will happen if you break a chain letter.
