I'll be doing some league renewal and prepayment processing today for the various RIFC leagues on myfantasyleague.com. If you receive an email saying your league has been activated for 2017, just ignore it. Recruiting and league assignments for 2017 will not be started until mid-July.

Invitations have now been sent out to all managers who participated last year. For this purpose, I used the email address that was registered for your team at myfantasyleague.com.

I will have some openings available in the AA league. If you have never played in an RIFC league (or if you played prior to 2016), please post your email address in this thread.

As a general overview, RIFC leagues consist of 14 managers. Rosters include both offensive and defensive players. A round-robin schedule is used for NFL weeks 1-13, followed by a single elimination playoff bracket format for weeks 13-16. Slow drafts are held online starting in late August and continuing through approximately Labor Day. To participate, you must be able to draft your team during that period. Usually, about 2-3 rounds will be completed each day of the draft.

For a more thorough description of the league, see the second post of this thread.

I'm interested if there is an AA spot open.

Status update: At this point, I have 49 managers committed to play in one of the RIFC leagues.

With four leagues of 14 managers each (56 total), that still leaves seven open slots. (Boozer and Matt G, I'm including you in the "committed" count.)

I'm still awaiting a response from the following six managers:
twolves
Aussie Diamondbacks
Fugazi
Donkey Hunters
Jofo
RJ

I've sent out followup notices to these people. If any of you know any of these people personally and can rattle their cage, that would be helpful.

It's likely that I'll still need several more newbies (or managers returning from a year off). If you want to play this year, post your contact info below or send an email to davehall@rotoguru2.com

Now we're down to just three who played last year and have not yet responded to my emails:
Aussie Diamondbacks
Jofo
RJ

We have 50 committed for 56 total spots.

Two "newbies" have also been invited, but I'm still awaiting confirmation from them.

Still at least one spot open, and probably a few more.

RIFC and both AAA leagues are now filled. League assignments for AAA will be published in the next few days.

Here are the 28 AAA teams:
Aussie Diamondbacks
Da Bomb Squad
Demaryius Targaryen
Donkey Hunters
Doug
Fugazi
Goatlocker
Holt
Judy
Khahan
louky
mjd
Promize
Russelldl
s_R
Slowhand
Stramonio
SwinganaMiss
Taxman
Toral
twilson
Valkyrie
VampireWeekend
Wiggs
Wolfer
Woody
youngroman
ywk


For AA, so far I have 9 teams committed:
Bean's Buckeyes
Boozer
Chucktaylors
Crabby Bills
loki
Matt G
Nerfherders
Rotten Amoebas
WG


In addition, I have invites out to two newbies. I'm awaiting a confirmation from each of them.

That leaves (at least) three spots open in AA. I would prefer to fill them with new teams. But, I may have to fill them with a second team from someone already in AAA or the top league.

If you would be willing to manage a second team, please let me know here. As in the past, your AA team will not be considered for purposes of promotion to a league next year. Only your team in the higher ranked league will count for that.

I'll take an AA team, first time RIFC, I think. If we could just get rid of WG in the league, that'd be great. Just kidding, I have a shot to beat him.

I am now up to 12 AA managers, and at least five current RIFC/AAA managers have expressed willingness to take a second team if needed.

Registration info will be sent out in the next day or so to the 12. I'll wait a few more days before selecting any duplicate managers, if needed.

I would be interested in joining the AA league. It's my first time playing RIFC.

Pretty good split on the AAA leagues.
Will be fun as always.
