Fellow SFNFCers - welcome to the Elite conference in SteelersFever Fantasy Football!

I'd like to start the ball rolling, now that we have an even number of teams, about a date we can run the draft.

So:

The Duke
KATK9
NCSteeler
CantStop85
pittsburghp8baller
Buzz05
LAMBERTISGOD58
GBMelBlount
Hines86Ward

I'll need your thoughts on a time/date that is suitable for all of us.

I think we should do it on a sunday - August 5th and 12th seem like good dates for me - what about the rest of you guys?

Im not concerned with a start time - i'll roll with the majority on that one.

Thanks

Anyday will be alright with me, but the time would prefer it at night, any time at night.

Let's get cracking on the 12th of Aug, anytime of the day is fine. Just hope the day is available on Yahoo.

Ok guys - that was far more simple than I expected!

We'll provisionally set the draft date for Sunday 12th August at 8PM.

I'll get back to you with more details as I get them.

Hope that date and time is available on Yahoo. You can set it for that time, and if we have to change it, then we change it, but if we wait to late it may not be available.

August 12 is good for me too. Its probably one of the few Sundays I dont have anything planned in August.

Looks like I need to get me a new fantasy football mag !

For whatever reason Yahoo won't let me set the draft time for 8pm on that particular day - so i've put it back 30 minutes to 8.30PM.

Its probably worth having a quick check to make sure i've got the time difference correct - and its definitely worth doing some pre-rankings in case that you are late or can't make the draft :cheers:

We can not conduct the draft this coming weekend with an odd number of teams.
"Your Head-to-Head league will not be able to start the season if it contains an odd number of teams". We need to fill the spot that someone has left open.

Yup, I know this. As I explained in the email I have a stand-by player but I'll only use her if we have an odd number of players the day before the draft.

Im still waiting to hear back from a couple of people that previously confirmed so its possible we could lose another player in which case we would have an even number again.

Thanks Rev.

If we have another drop out (leaving us with even numbers) we'd be glad to have ya, along with the other stand-by - Sleepless in Seattle.

Should know where we stand on saturday.

Cool. I'm going out of town for the weekend, and will be back Sunday afternoon. Just in case I get in, is there any way for me to look at the league rules?

Sleepless In Seattle

Cool. Just a couple questions and I'll be ready to draft (if I can get in).

Is W/R a flex position? Can that be WR/RB/TE?
Also, I see this is an individual defensive player league (which is preferable), but I also see DEF and D. That's a little confusing. Does that mean a DB, a D lineman AND a team defense?

Sorry to be a pain in the arse.

Not a pain. As commish to the superior conference, I'll answer your questions.

W/R is a flex position for either an RB or a WR. Not a TE.

You have a team defense as well as individual defenders. DL is defensive lineman and linebackers. DB is corners and safeties. D is a wildcard, any defensive position.

If anything goes awry in the other conference and I need a fill in I will let you guys know. Our draft is later in the month, however.

EDIT: Individual defensers do not have to be from your team defenses team. For example... this can be your roster.

DEF: Jacksonville
DL: Zach Thomas
DB: Troy Polamalu
D: Brian Urlacher

BettisFan
08-09-2007, 03:59 PM

Guys/gals,

I guess things had run too smoothly to this point - i've had an emergency situation arise at work (we've had a big fire in our factory and the electricians are being drafted in for re-wiring and god knows what else) - there isn't any real way I can avoid this.

I've left a PM with Crushzilla and I hope he can run the thing instead of me (i'll let him log in as me and leave myself on autodraft).

I have left word with Sleeplessinseattle that she was officially in the leage yesterday but haven't heard back so i've told Crush that revefsreleets is next in line.

I hope it all works out, if it doesn't we'll have to re-arrange.

Apologies.

Nigel

Crushzilla
08-12-2007, 01:02 PM
I see that Nigel has the draft set for 1:30 Chew Chomp time. So that means 8:30 here time?

Alright. The current game plan is that we are going to wait until about 8ish. If one of the two reserves are not on board at that time. We may have to start looking to other options. I also know that BettisFan was maybe interested so we'll see what we can do.

If We can get one of those last people to join, then we will advance as planned.

The only difference is that no tea and crumpets will be served. I am sorry.

If anyone has any questions, please leave me a PM. I will not be around for the next few hours, but I will get to it when I can.

08-12-2007, 07:07 PM
I'm glad to see someone is available. The draft order will be randomly selected around 5:00pm (my time), I'm not sure if it will select an order if the league has an odd number of teams. I've never experienced that situation before being a commissioner. I just hope someone is aware that you are available.

This is the message I just sent Crushzilla

How long are we going to wait before revefsreleets is sent the League id, and password to join our League and Draft? Doesn't seem to be anyone else available to join, and he is waiting around until the draft starts.

Crushzilla
08-12-2007, 07:51 PM
