As we kick-off to another kick-ass season of blog post from the Brotherhood of I Phelta Thi Fantasy Football League, we would like to welcome our newest members a Mr. Robert Leland Warnick and Jeffery Scott Poole. I've known these men for a good while and I know that their hearts are good. For those of you who are unfamiliar with these great men, allow me to make your introduction.
Robert Freakin' Warnick pictured just after rush week when he had to walk like this to Salt Lake to be in the Brotherhood... (He's the only one who was willing to do an initiation) This is a cool guy, trust me :)
Jeff Poole is a man among boys, although you probably wouldn't think that as you see him playing with Poo in this picture. But, believe me when I tell you he's a cool guy too.
One of the problems of having a superawesome Fantasy Football League is our friends who get left out. I know that Rob has been on the waiting list for like 2 years... AT LEAST! And Jeff, who knows how long that kids been whining about it. But sadly, we are not able to accommodate all of our superrad friends, and we as a whole we have decided for obvious reasons not to expand from a 10 man to a 12 man league.
But, I just wanted to take a quick moment to recognize the little guy who got left out this year. Joseph Warner Cook! Many of you will remember Joe as Brent Cooks little brother, but his College Bowl Pick'em record would make you think that Brent is the younger of the two.
When Brent first came to me stating that Joe feels ready to run with the big dawgs I recommend he blog about it. And, what happened? NOTHING! Brent dropped the ball... Sorry Joe :) So, right now I'm trying to reserve a spot for you when the next opening occurs. But, I'm not sure if there is someone ahead of you, or if that day would ever come. But, should any of our comrades decide to wuss out in the future. I would like to make an official request to have you Mighty Joe Cook on deck for the next opening in the I Phelta Thi Fantasy Football League.

Men, I think we all know why I'm here today, I am here to inform you that I feel that we need ONE solid Commissioner! One leader among this group of extraordinary Fantasy Football Leaguers. I don't know of any tribe, kingdom, or even with our Democratic system where power changes hands so quickly. But, power does change hands within tribes, kingdoms and with our Presidents but not like the way we throw it around like a hot potato.
I propose that we develop a system that would allow us to not have to worry about training a new Commish every year, and once they learn the system and get everything under control we get a new commissioner. Right now we all voice our opinion the Alpha Male will stand up and declare when the draft is and then the new Commissioner will state when the draft is and will send out the invites after getting trained on it. I like how we are able to voice our thoughts and then the commissioner decides what's best for the whole... Let's keep that up, because let's be honest... If we keep going the way were going as far as getting a new commissioner then someday we'll have Joe Strickland as the Commish! And just think of that Crazy Dictatorship!!!
Keep in mind that this was a good system we had when everyone thought that being the Comish was something to be desired. But, now we know what a mess it is and how needy Fantasy Owners like myself can be. Zach was our fist one and the little guy did a good job, The tyrannical reign Quinn, was actually pretty good also, I think we were all surprised with Thome not sluffing off commish responsibilities and hosting a successful draft and a pleasant season. I don't know is there anyone else that I'm missing? We've been playing for a while. Has Brent ever been a Commissioner? I don't know he excels at everything else in life why not as Commissioner as well?
I bring this list up of proven Commissioners to propose that we nominate one man to be our fearless commissioner. But, to avoid getting burnt out I propose that the man who we elect they will be commish for the next Presidential Term. I mean if a feller can successfully lead a country and hand over a country after four years we could do the same with our League.
So, let's put a vote to it and make a Commissioner who will be incharge for the next four years of Mitt Romney's first term :) What do you say MEN? Let's do
