    Palouse FC and FC Firefly - Ismitje and Mrs. Ismitje - are in. Of course we all had to use real names due to FB issues except for Shaggy Real, unless some legal name change shenanigans took place, so it doesn't really help to say Ismitje and Mrs. Ismitje!

    I think it is great that you can join multiple leagues with the same team.

    I got a kick out of seeing the drop down menu say "Favourite Team" with the English spelling.

    I was pretty irritated I had to join facebook to play but I wanted to try something a little different than MFLS.

    Im not a fan of being forced to use facebook either, so I created a new account with a made up name.

    I thought I saw where there was also a bunch of folks on MFLS.com. Was it my imagination or is there an RSL league there, too?

    I'm in a bit of a conundrum with who to pick as my 2nd forward for this week. Do I pick my somewhat proven forward from Houston, played in a big majority of games last year, or an unproven newbie in Vancouver, who scored against the Impact during the preseason...

    I could go with 3 forwards this round, but I don't really have any mids or defenders that I'd rather sit out.

    I had the same problem. I ended up going with Braun, and I based that decision on his performance from last season. Here's hoping he gets some playing time with Montreal!

    Damn! To bad Seba didn't get credit for the goal. How many others had him on their fantasy team?

    So far I have 57 points after the RSL game.

    Well done! I have 43. I'd have 45 if I had put Kelyn Rowe on instead of Magee. oh well. I don't have Seba either... I'm happy about my 43 though.

    I forgot my total, its 30 something and I have 3 dallas players so that could jump up a bit. So far my Olave/Morales/Espindola trio is panning out. Forza RSL!

    So in the rules it says -1 point for a yellow. I'm guessing they will take into account retroactive yellows? Say Edson Buddle, just as an example, committed 7 fouls and somehow didn't get carded. If MLS goes back and gives him a yellow is that going to be reflective in the points?

    Did anyone actually pick up Buddle? He's mediocre overall. There's so many other forwards I'd pick before ever considering him. He had one solid season that was largely due to the service of Donovan/Beckham. Put him on almost any other team and he'll never post the numbers he did in 2010.

    I have Buddle,magee and becks on my fantasy team. I prefer to have people who score points on my team. :cool:

    Replace Buddle then ;) While I'm not a fan of Magee, the guy does seem to get the job done when it counts.

    Buddle will get plenty of chances to score with becks and donovan serving him the ball. He'll get 10 goals minimum on accident.

    Shaggy, you're in the top 50 right now. Keep it up!

    Can't argue with points... the most possible I could have had so far is 57... I missed out on 14 points by not making Kimura my captain, and putting magee in instead of rowe. I'm hoping that hartman has a better game than ricketts...

    Does anyone have Hamid as their keeper? dude was kicking butt yesterday.

    Palouse FC with fifty after day one - no RSL players on my squad in week one though. Well, Reynish, but of course he was on the bench.

    Kimura sure was a point producer, too bad he wasn't my captain!

    Hey, wait a minute - Shaggy got that score by choosing a captain who was playing against us! :eek:

    I may have to ban him from the RSL forum. ;)

    This was my thought too. I have to choose my captain more carefully next round.
