First things first, let me put this out there:
Please opt out now if you think you can’t commit to managing your team weekly. No harm, no foul – just let me know, because if you don’t show up for the draft AND you don’t manage your team the first week – I will simply delete your team, and we’ll re-draft for the leftover players (unless you contact me and let me know what’s going on. If you keep in touch with me, you’ll be fine). I don’t know if deleting and re-drafting is even possible with the Yahoo draft tools – but I’ll figure something out. I’m just not going to tolerate anyone taking a spot in the league then never being heard from again.
Alright, by now all of you who are participating have received several emails regarding the format of our draft, the roster updates, and the process for determining the draft order. The random drawing resulted in the following order, which is not the draft order, rather, the #1 pick can choose his draft slot, followed by #2, etc.
# 1: CrownMeNow
# 2: Sonny Morocco91
# 3: Tribe Slapahoe
# 4: Backhanders
# 5: DC
# 6: Gerb’s Suckwads
# 7: KD’s Squad
# 8: The Sad Schaubs
# 9: Tailgaters
# 10: lumberjackato
# 11: Battle Red Undead
# 12: Beer Belly Ninjas
# 13: East Texas Eagles
# 14: The Persianators
With work schedules and commitments the way they are, I’d love to put everyone on a 24-hour clock before I choose the draft slot for you – but with the draft coming up next Wednesday, we don’t have time for that.
#1 is currently “on the clock” to get back to me, and once he does or does not, I’ll send the next person an email and they’ll have approximately 12 hours to get back to me. I know it’s not really enough time for busy people with families and weekend commitments, but that’s how we’re doing it. If someone fails to get back to me, that person will simply get the lowest-numbered (closest to number one) draft pick available.
Remember – the draft is WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2nd @ 8PM CENTRAL TIME. You can log on to the league with the info I’ve previously given you, or you can bookmark this address:
Make sure you test your system to confirm it works with Yahoo’s interface (for example, I use the Google Chrome browser, and there are issues). At the above link, they give you a “test” feature so you can try it out.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Let’s get this thing rolling.
