  1. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    <shrug> I posted my availability. No one else has done so, I don't think.
  2. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Your availability matches mine pretty well. No complaints here.
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It looks like it'll just be me and you then :D
  4. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    My availibility will kinda match Rokeapokes except for this weekend....I will not be back until Saturday evening (late). So anytime after that I should be good to go.
  5. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'm pretty free with very few exceptions. Just pick any date/time (except for Sunday mornings) and if I can make it, I'll be there. If not, I'll piss and moan, then I'll deal with it.

    Monday of next week is good. Tuesday through next Sunday is bad. So I wouldn't worry too much about working with my schedule.

    One BIG problem w/ Autodraft is knowing what other's have picked - when you have some live - some Auto...

    We can do a "live" draft here and then a manager can update the league manually...

    (Just a thought)...

    Oh yeah... I joined - looks like there are now 9 players... need 1 more to make it even. :) I hate bye weeks... especially in an uneven season where a player gets 2... We could always make a "goldfish" team...
  8. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I think you have to have an even number of teams to have a draft.... I hate the goldfish team, but if it has to be it has to be.....

    Hey KJ! Come on you can just set it and forget it....... the draft by list is easy and you never klnow what you're gonna get.......

    anyone?
  9. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I can always make the dummy team again...

    I'd rather not do the live draft here since, going by our experience with Magic drafts, we're probably not gonna finish in time for the season :)

    So how about 8/17 (Sunday) at 9 PM EDT?
  10. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Sure, works for me.

    But I would strongly oppose the goldfish team. Just set a team to autodraft and leave the team alone, except to replace injuries.
  11. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I'm not sure if you're mixing up "goldfish" with "dummy" team, but I think that's what I did last year: set the dummy team's draft to the bottom players and didn't even bother replacing the injuries.
  12. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    See, that's what I'm rallying against. Don't add artificial bye weeks, just make it the "Yahoo default" team. Leave the draft order as is and the roster will fill with the best available players, so at least the team will be middling, rather than terrible. An "extra bye" team makes for a very unbalanced schedule, since some people would face that team twice while others would face it only once.
  13. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Piss-and-Moan: Craps.... my internet at the apartment has been very sketchy and the school isn't open on Sunday....

    Deal-with-It: Oh well.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    rokapoke: Ah, I getcha. So you *want* the team to be competitive. I'm fine with that :)
  15. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Find someone else to run the team.
    But, i like the idea of a non-bye type team......
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You mean for replacement of injuries? We can just say that the best available player at that position replaces him... what about bye weeks for the players on that team? Same deal - best player replaces that bye player who's already on the roster?
  17. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    That works, but if KJ would get off his behind and pilot the team we wouldn't have this problem...... or anyone else for that matter..... who's not in yet?
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, get KJ over here... If we have 9 teams, I think we have pretty much everyone who's gonna play...
  19. BigBlue Magic Jones

    As far as drafting here goes...

    I was just thinking it gives people a bit more time and meets odd time zone constraints... we could even just run the first 2 rounds... then the mod for the league assigns those players and we can use autodraft for the rest... At least you used to be able to do that in a league... I haven't run one for years... :)

    Yes, potential Injuries are a problem the earlier you draft... but that's the price you pay... League owners could also proxy pick w/ someone in a live draft if they want to - if we get the draft order early...

    I can make myself available for a Sunday Draft as long as I'm not out of town or anything... 8/17 is a date I should be around.
  20. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I will be at GenCon on 8/17.... but I have no problem with using my list to draft.... I did it most years.
