Obviously 3-4 days of lead time clearly arent enough...
10/11/2013 9:52 AM
The problem with random.org is you could just run it over and over until you got favorable results. You can't do that with NY lotto.
10/11/2013 10:22 AM

Yea, I could sly but thats not how I do things...

10/11/2013 2:02 PM
Not saying you do.  But in the interest of transparency and to avoid any further accusations that you have cheated to receive so many top picks recently, use the NY lotto.
10/11/2013 2:04 PM
Agreed - game on.  No need to redraft, and with respect if malone or 98 don't like the way the league is set up, start your own.  I was late for my pick but I'm not crying about it.

Yeah you are a stand up individual! LOLOLOLOLOL

WHEN YOU HAVE A 1 ROUND DRAFT THERE SHOULD NEVER BE ANY SKIPS!!!!

First off my remarks were about the lack of sitemails...I do not view you as a cheater yard, but I have been kind of ****** that I get crappy draft position in this league EVERY TIME.  It doesn't mean I feel like you cheated, but I do feel as though there should be a better system...losers draft early like the old gym rat leagues were would be better.  I end up having to experiment because by the time I pick the premium teams are all gone.  

I quoted 98average's email more in my haste of being ****** and the lack of emails.

You sent two...not one, so that is my bad. but the last one was on 10/5.  Do you think this is the only league I play in?  The only draft?  I need a sitemail to remind me.  I don't schedule this in my phone...mainly because it is just a game.

What ever happened to sitemailing next?  The other draft related leagues I am in has people that sitemail and a commish that reminds us which day we are drafting.  Right now I am working 80+ hour weeks, and I need all the reminders I can get (especially since my phone died this week).

AGAIN...TO EVERYONE WHY DON'T WE SITEMAIL?  ISN'T THAT THE RULE AROUND HERE? SHOULDN'T SUPERROB420 HAVE SITEMAILED ME?  REALLY?

My God. Is this whole issue on me now? I didn't sitemail because I wasn't at a computer. Made my pick late and from a cellphone because I was out of the office that day. Sitemailing the next guy is a courtesy, not a mandate. If I had made my pick on time, and it was convenient, I probably would have sent a message to the next two people. We're all in multiple leagues here. Somehow I was able to make my pick without ljemd sending me a message, and felonious obviously made his pick without a word from you. How? We actually stuck to the schedule.

Yard told us all to sitemail.  This is common courtesy.  If you can't sitemail you tell people you can't so someone else can do it.

Sitemailing is a courtesy, and not doing it shows you are not courteous, and neither was ljemd if he didn't.  If you were late I get that...especially if felonius had already drafted, but I never heard of anything else about this league from 10/5 until yesterday...which was 2 days after my pick.

Again...you are in 4 leagues (according to your profile)...I am in 11 plus I am drafting another team, getting ready for two other drafts, and trying to manage three playoff squads (poorly I might add).  I need the courtesy that has become the norm in the basketball sim for the last 7-8 years that I have been active in draft leagues.

I don't throw it all on you though.  Most commishes (commishs?..who knows how to spell that non word) will sitemail the list the day prior, or at least the day the draft starts, OR when they notice at the end of that day there is someone missing.  Look at how guys like kfunk, ncih, jakotay, dh555, smokey57, natenoy, and others have run draft leagues over the years.

Look I am not a guy that is known for holding up drafts, and for whatever differences 98average and I have had he doesn't hold up drafts either.  It would have dawned on someone that we missed our spot, and maybe a quick message like before 48 hours had elapsed between the scheduled pick and the sitemail I got.
