Now that everyone is in I get to see who I'm playing first
I remember 20 years ago, getting together in the basement with 10-12 guys and doing NHL playoff pools.I remember 20 years ago, getting together in the basement with 5-6 guys and playing dungeon and dragons.
Everyone with their magazines and pens and paper...Everyone with their character sheets, 20 sided dice and copy of the players handbook. Yea my inner geek is coming out.
we still try to get together during our drafts, but with people away it's hardWe still get together every year at Lake George, but it's now a weekend drinkfest instead of game. good times.
My first ever pick was Manny Ramirez, 6th overall in 1995I'm not saying I am old, but I did have George Brett on my team once, and he was still good.
yeah-My generation didn't think of this fantasy stuff until later. Missed out on good 20 years of fantasy fun.Yeah that sucks..............what's worse is you barely missed the "free love" of the 60's and had to deal with the 70's..........lol..
4. We currently have 1 DL slot but I think a second DL slot would be a good addition in light of only a 5 man bench (or an additional bench spot would work as well). It's not necessary, just a preference.
5. One of the new features on yahoo this year is a Predetermined Random Draft Order so you can randomize your live draft order before the draft date (as opposed to waiting 30 minutes before the draft to find out when you pick). If we can do this early so we can all formulate some kind of draft plan it would be appreciated.
4) I agree with Jim that a 2nd DL spot would be good. There are a lot of 15-30 day injuries over the course of 162 games.
5) I see no disadvantage to the predetermined random draft order. I did not realize this was an option. Does this option come up once we finalize the owner lists, or did I miss it in the initial set up?
Just please make sure the word gets out to all as soon as you decide to change things, so everyone can get on board and up to speed a.s.a.p before draft day comes.Let's close the voting at midnight on the 24th. This will give us plenty of time to vote on these minor settings and will also provide time to discuss draft time options if need be. If we have not found a draft time that works by this Sunday, we will need to work quickly to lock that down. We need to have the time and all settings finalized by March 1 to give everyone adequate time to prepare.
since everyone is signed up I suggest you send out an e-mail to everyone and let them know to read this just incase they're off doing other things and miss this or the post on yahoo.
