Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the games, ask questions about players/teams (lots of Renegades talk today), talk about who deserves a promotion, who's hot/not, etc. We haven't tried a GDT before and I'm not sure who will be around since it's Sunday, but have fun. The live scoreboard with links to the games is on the sidebar, in case you haven't noticed. And before anyone asks, no news on any more draft signings.
