    This may come of as clique elitist (clique-litist? there's a pun in here somewhere...) but you can't just form a name worthy forum clique, that has to be carefully fostered and earned.

    The Darrells were formed since there was a need for a beacon of hope and reason at the old cesspool of a board.

    The Normans came to fruition because BTS and I subtly undermined the Darrells reign, while also gaining their begrudging respect. There was also a need to acknowledge the group of (two) individuals who represented all that is good at this board, while also being superior fantasy players and handsome fellows.

    The Howie's are young and annoying, but invaluable to the board. They also resemble some sort of boyband, so they get their clique.

    TCA and Spanky also have some semblance of an (unnamed) clique, because they get drunk and do regrettable things. It's the perfect combination of entertainment, regret and concern. I'd also would not oppose an east-coast clique being formed, but only if we call them the Donair's.

    I feel like TCA and Spank could be the Barneys but I'm not going to pretend I am capable of deeming such a thing to be so. Unlike "The Costanzas"

    I would say our superior DDL performance has been at least some measure of vengeance.

    History is written by the victors. As far as the DDL goes (which is all that matters in life, really) the Normans are the victors.

    Also, I wasn't even around or relevant when the Darrells were formed, so I couldn't have have ever not made the cut.

    How about a new clique called the Andrews. Every Andrew/Andy/Drew/etc. on this board is welcome. Just to make our clique sound cooler, our mascot will be an Android.

    Seems like it could be a close race. The Darrells and Howies are loaded while you might need to carry Spittin (although I think his team is decent) and the Norman's are disadvantaged with the Orioles.
    We are still recruiting. A few people to consider.

    Can someone tell me when we have to have our rosters injury compliant by? I mean where only really injured players can be on our DL. Thanks.

    There's no monitoring of this. Fantrax won't let you make roster moves with active players on the IR.
