DK March Madness Group

by Danno11

March Madness is back and so is the Tourney Pool! As usual, it's free to play and we invite DK community members to join in! We had 42 members last year. Considering we already have ten in there, we should be able to hit 50 without a problem!

I did move the group over to CBS Sports this year. Yahoo was demanding a phone number to play & that was the last straw for me dealing with them. So, enjoy CBS!

Also, follow the Fantasy Sports Group for information on all our community activities!

Directions are below. Feel free to make this a NCAA Basketball Tournament Open Thread! Who got left out? Who got a generous seed? Best match-ups? Let us know what you think!

I will be around to answer any questions in the comments!

DK Fantasy Baseball: Last chance!

by Danno11

Last call for baseball!

We already have 43 members, newbies & vets, for Fantasy Baseball! How about that? If you'd like to join in the fun, now's the time to get on the train!

This year, I do need an email address to send you an invitation. The old ID/password system that Yahoo used is no longer in service. However, since Yahoo is such a good platform, we've decided to stay there. Feel free to message me privately on DK Messages with your email address. Just click 'Send Message' next to my username & the follow button right under the Daily Kos banner!"

If you choose, you can make your email private on the Yahoo site itself. Members will still be able to contact you about trades, etc. but they won't be able to see your address.

Head on below for details on draft dates & game play. Take the poll and stick around to talk MLB in the comments, as this is a baseball open thread.

Cheers & Jeers is NOT shutting down!

by Danno11

Despite the best work of the Tea Party & a filibuster by Sen. Ted Cruz, Cheers & Jeers is still up & running! In a surprising twist, none of the Republicans seemed to have the proper Voter ID to cast their ballots here!

Efforts to shut down Cheers & Jeers, also known as Bill in Portland Maine-care, have continued. The latest Republican plan offer hostage scenario would provide funding for the National Park Service & the District of Columbia if Cheers & Jeers is permanently defunded!

That offer was met with strong DKos resistance. Cheers & Jeers spokesman Common Sense Mainer rejected the offer, stating that the GOP proposal, "shows the utter lack of seriousness that we're seeing from Republicans."

DKos founder Markos Moulitsas was quoted this morning saying that, "One of the eye-opening hallmarks of this latest Bill in Portland Maine-care shutdown battle has been the steely resolve of the Cheers & Jeers fans. It threatens to bring tears to my eyes."

DK Fantasy Football - Last chance!

by Danno11

Hello Kossacks!

DK Fantasy Football is back again. We've got a decade under our belts now! How about that? We have 54 players already and we're looking for a few new teams to add to the mix.

Details on the leagues are below the fold. Feel free to make this an NFL Open Thread. Lots to talk about...Dolphins or Pats in the AFC East? Seahawks, Niners or perhaps the Rams in the NFC West? Is this the year the Falcons break through? Will there be another butt-fumble in the Jets' future? Will Kirk Cousins start 4-6 games for Washington until RG III returns? Who are this year's surprise teams? The Chargers? The Chiefs? The Lions? The Titans?
