Who we are

Tom Merritt is the co host of Cordkillers, Sword & Laser, and Current Geek as well as host of the Daily Tech News Show. He wears a beard on purpose. Justin Robert Young is a mystery. Is he merely the co-host of Night Attack and Weird Things. Or is he a best-selling comedian artiste? Or is he a former newspaper man? He is all of these. and more. (Make sure you watch the video above... we are men of action, lies do not become us.)

What is FSL?

As you can see in the video above, FSL is difficult to explain. Suffice to say if you like the idea of two people talking like sports radio guys doing sports commentary about an imaginary game of sportsball between wizards, stormtroopers, Ponies and Daleks then welcome. You're home.

FSL Tonight Seasons one through three followed the rise and fall of the Lannisport Lions, Mordor Crows and Canton Jaynes, as well as the total destruction of the Alderaan Rebels.

What's coming in Season 4?

This season is shaping up to be a scorcher. Here are the division breakdowns:

East: San Francisco Federation (defending champs) New York Avengers, Coruscant Empire, Cylon Raiders (new)

West: Arrakis Sandworms, Gallifrey Time Lords, Skaro Exterminators, Ponyville Fillies.

What can I do, Tom and Justin?

Intrigued? Good. Once again we call upon you in our time of pre-season need. As much as we bleed FSL red and blue, doing a fourth season would be difficult to justify given our full schedules and bill paying needs. We're both entirely independent as podcasters now.

Enter you, our hero. The FSL has a devoted following.We have amazing fan art, amazing fan predictions and analysis and you've been bugging us for months on Twitter about season 4. So here's the deal You kick in a little, even just a few dollars, and you'll own a piece of the season. Kind of like the Green Bay Packers. Kick in enough money and we'll put you IN the show. Seriously.

FSL Tonight Season 4 will be 13 episodes. 10 regular season game recaps plus the two playoff recaps, PLUS the second annual all-star game recap.

As you can see, there are a number of cool rewards packages. Let us know in the comments if you have any questions.

So there you have it. We're putting YOU in the owner's box. Exterminate your hesitation and show us that friendship truly is the magic we've heard it is. ENGAGE!

Risks and challenges

Nothing short of death or you not backing us could stop us from doing season 4 of FSL Tonight. However, episodes *could* be delayed by computer failures or Internet outages. Not likely but hey, it happens. Our custom episodes are more likely to be delayed because of scheduling issues both on our side and on the backers. But we will record the episodes. Of course prints and USB drives can hit snags in printing, creation and in the mail. We'll do our best to fulfill promptly.
