I'd like to see the "professors" in this "experts league" really put it on the line and agree that any expert who finishes in the bottom 50% of the league, or any expert beaten by four or more of the non-experts...

loses his icon.

What do ya say, boys? Care to make it interesting?

I said this last year about finishing in the bottom three and finished third. I will say the same thing this year; if I finish in the bottom three, I will give up my icon. But there are only 3 nonexperts in the league so your second condition needs to be revised.

Ah, yes. three brave souls. Okay then... bottom three, or anyone who is beaten by all three Gilligans (the anti-professors).

Kudos to you, RNC, for putting yourself out there a bit. Are the others brave enough to try licking the flagpole, too?

Have no clue what I did to earn my icon (except act like a smartass), so whether I win or not, I'm more than happy to trade it in for whatever anyone thinks it is worth.

I guess I'll have to pay someone to take it then ;-7

I actually would have loved to take a shot at it, but I didn't see this thread until after the league had already been selected. If a team opens up, please consider me.

14 year fantasy vet.

Mostly roto over the years, but recently been playing H2H and enjoying it, too.

Have won three or four ESPN and Yahoo leagues.

Participated in an "experts league" formed through CBS by the Denver Post newspaper in 2008 season in support of a year-long series on fantasy baseball. Got my tail handed to me (8th out of 14).
