In all seriousness, Matt - who gives a rat's padoody how high someone's post count is? A high post count doesn't make someone a better poster than someone who has less than 5 posts. Quality, not quantity.

i agree. i would say shoot for sometime in the week of august 20th or aug. 27th. i am sure i am in the minority here, but my preference would be to draft around 11pm or midnight on any weekday. i can do it in early evening but it would be from work. just prefer to do it at home with a brewsky in my hand if possible

I knew you wouldn't let me down Nigel.

To Buzz and Mel and any others who filled in, thank you.

When I made the decision to move to two leagues, "conferences," we had enough interested to fill both leagues. Not to say that those who inevitably could not participate were in the wrong. Glad we are back on track though and ready for our inaugural season.

Now to the final order of business.
I have some of your "preferred" draft times already. It is looking like the AFC's will be much later in the day.

I would still love to hear feedback, however, so we can pick a time that works for as much people as possible. Please keep in mind that if you are not present in the draft the computer will chose a team for you based on the best available choice and your positional needs. While it is still VERY possible to win with a team that was chosen for you (I did my first year), it is much more of an advantage to be in attendance and see how things are progressing to see if you can reach, wait, or pull pull the trigger on your favorite choice.

A note. For those who are NOT going to be live drafting, Yahoo's system has NEVER been able to successfully draft defenders on its "autorun" setting. So if you are not going to be there you WILL get stuck with terrible defenders. I came up with 3rd string DLmen and other terrible choices. There is just something about the system that has never been fixed. While it is very easy to find capable defenders in FA after the draft, why deal with it.

You can preset your player rankings for the computer to consider if you do not plan on attending the live draft. If you fail to prerank your players, Yahoo will use their preranking instead. These are pretty accurate, but IMO aren't dead on, as things get a little jumbled after the LT Steven Jackson, and LJ.

I don't want to get into it here, but I think Jackson's rank is deserved. I'm getting off topic.

So, to recap.
AFC- keep up the feedback
NFC- What are your preferred drafting times. It will come later in the offseason once training camp is well rolling and things are looking more clear. I imagine most of you work, so right there is a scheduling conflict.

Thanks guys and thank you again, Nigel, glad to know the NFC is in capable hands

The draft time is going to be dependant on what shift I am working at the time.

Once we get it narrowed down to a 7 day window i'll have a better idea of what i'd prefer.
