OK, here's where we stand:

We have 7 returning players from last year. They are:
Duke
Kat
CS85
Pballer
Lambertisgod
GBMelBlount
Revs

We have 5 openings available. If anyone from last year somehow missed their invite, they'll have to "open enroll" along with the newcomers and hope to win the lottery and get in. So far, here are the candidates to fill the 5 openings:

43Hitman
lilyoder6
steelwall
klick81
millwalldavey
steeler in carolina
steelman 16
Bettisfan

OE closes next Sunday at midnight and we'll draw next Monday (or thereabouts). Anyone else wanting consideration post up in this thread. Good luck!

Oh, and the draft is live. It's schedule for Saturday, August 30 at 9:30 AM. Please consider this when you think about joining since Yahoo's auto-draft sucks, and you will not have a chance drafting with it.

Hey rev, I am stickying this thread until Sunday at midnight, EST. I am assuming the draft on August 30th at 9:30 AM is also EST (for folks living out West)?

Good thinking....and you're right. I was thinking last Sunday of the month and everything was almost already gone. I set our draft for Saturday August 30 at 12:30 PM.

Now, I know inevitably there will be one or two people who will have a problem with that, but it's 80 days away, so I'm hoping most people will be able to find a way to block out a couple hours that Saturday, or borrow their friends iphone or something for that time.

Just trying to get a understanding, earlier you said the draft was at 12:30pm, now it's 9:30am. I was under the impression that I had to be there at 9:30am since I live on the west coast, now it's 6:30am. Please clarify.

Yeah, the time is actually 12:30 PM EDT, 9:30 Pacific. For some reason it was set on yahoo for PST.

So, to clarify, the draft is August 30, 12:30 PM (just after noon, not at midnight) EDT, 9:30 pacific time. Sorry about the mix up.

No problem at all. Thank you for clarifying.

Actually, if you are the only holdout that missed the original deadline, and you really want in, I'm inclined to just give you your spot back...

guys that dont get in here, it looks like there may be spots opening up in the afc league. still only 6 signed up. deadline is around the 12th i believe for last year's people to sign up.

Hey thanks for remebering me Rev. And no matter the outcome I am just glad I have a fair shot. Also if I don't get randomly picked for the NFC league I would be more than happy to fill a hole in the AFC league.

Same here. If the NFC doesn't work out, hopefully I'll be able to get in the AFC.

Me too, as far as the AFC thingy.

Actually, since the preference of league doesn't seem to matter to many, we are going to just make this the enrollment thread for BOTH leagues.

I have three spots open.

If you haven't put your name in for the lottery, be sure to do so, because there will not be another thread for the AFC.

Ya. I actually forgot to send the info to the other two people, and I am still waiting for one of the original seven who had committed to join.

Well, if things hold as they are now until Sunday at midnight, and pending receipt of responses from the last 3 folks who may or may not respond to Crush, we may not need to do a drawing. By my count there are a total of 7 slots available (4 for the SFNFC and 3 for the SFAFC) and as of now, there are 10 folks who want to join:

43Hitman
lilyoder6
steelwall
klick81
millwalldavey
steeler in carolina
steelman 16
steelymcmatt
frigbee
Tankus_Maximus

(Gotta disqualify Bettisfan here as he was given a 30-day vacation from the board, and frigbee and Tankus_Maximus both made their interest in joining known a couple of weeks ago in this other thread which apparently had been overlooked: http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?p=408256#post408256.) If Crush doesn't hear back from the other 3, that will bump the total of open slots to 10. If anyone else is interested, please give a holler right here in this thread, as the deadline to make yourself known is 12 midnight EST this Sunday night (July 13).

Update: I received word back from Crushzilla that there are four open slots in the SFAFC, so there are actually a total of eight open slots to fill. If there are no objections, I will run the number drawing at 12 noon EST. Thanks and once again, good luck to everyone. :hope: :cheers:

For the two that don't get in, there are plenty of other fantasy leagues starting up around here, and I'm sure there will be some turnover next year.

The downside with high turnover year-to-year is it almost eliminates the option of making these keeper leagues.

fansince'76
07-14-2008, 11:09 AM
The drawing has taken place. If there are no objections from Crushzilla or revefsreleets, the first four numbers drawn will go to the SFAFC, while the second four will be slotted for the SFNFC.

Once again, here is the list of entrants:

1. 43Hitman
2. lilyoder6
3. steelwall
4. klick81
5. millwalldavey
6. steeler in carolina
7. steelman 16
8. steelymcmatt
9. frigbee
10.Tankus_Maximus

Here is the random number generator (http://www.randomizer.org/form.htm) I used:

And here are the results:

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb136/garyb12001/Screenshot-12.jpg

frigbee, steeler in carolina, Tankus_Maximus and klick81 - welcome to the SFAFC!

lilyoder6, steelwall, 43Hitman and Steelman16 - welcome to the SFNFC!

Condolences to millwalldavey and steelymcmatt. Might I suggest these two folks be held as reserves in case some of the drawing selectees do not respond to their invitations?

revefsreleets
07-14-2008, 11:27 AM
Surely. When I get a chance (either tonight or tomorrow) I will PM and/or email formal invites for the league. Welcome aboard all!

Thanks for helping out, too...much obliged!

Crushzilla
07-14-2008, 02:35 PM
Thank you very much, Gary.

I applaud the extra mile taken to ensure that everyone realizes the pure randomness.

Last thing we need is FantasyGate.

I complete agree to keeping millwalldavey and steelymcmatt in the reserve pool. You never know.

Congrats, new members of the SFAFC. You'll be receiving info in a PM very shortly.

Don't be too hasty. The invites for NFC might be delayed by a couple of days, so I'm not running quite as tight of a ship as you may have thought.

I'm sure you'll get it worked out. I'm not worried.

Steelman16
07-15-2008, 10:26 PM
Sorry to be a bother, but I looked for the info and couldn't find it posted, so will I be recieving a PM or email? I ask only because my email addy has problems sometimes (I get mail several days/weeks late on occasion) so it would be fantastic if you could PM me the info.

Thanks for all the work put into getting the leagues together! :thumbsup:

revefsreleets
07-16-2008, 05:55 PM
Everything is set to go. 2 others have joined, and I sent out the same exact info to everyone (in fact I copied and pasted the info).

If problems persist, let me know. Otherwise, we should be good to go.

07-16-2008, 06:27 PM
I figured it out. You accidently sent the password with a capital letter. The password is all lower case.

07-16-2008, 06:43 PM

The only thing I don't like is that I'll have to wake up early on a Saturday for the draft. :wink02:

NOTE TO NFC PLAYERS! The scoring system is set to yahoo defaults. This league had to start from scratch due to NH being an asshole. I'll be synching it to the AFC's existing scoring system soon.

revefsreleets
07-28-2008, 11:07 AM
Crush sent me the changes, and I'll plug them in when I get the chance...when that's done I'll let ya'll know. It'll be the same system we had last year, but you noobs may want to acquaint yourself with it as it should affect your draft.
