Seapilot,
Couple of questions:
1) Could Jordan, for instance, be playing for two teams.....using different seasons of Jordan?
2) I assume that once you get 24 owners signed up, you then determine and publish the order of draft?
3) Just roughly, how much time is typically needed to make a selection?  Seems it could take a while with people working for a living (unlike myself).

I will let you know about signing up but it does sound interesting.
Thank you

1) drafted players are exclusive to that team. (you can use any yr. of players career or trade 'em)
    You can trade draft picks for current season only.  All teams MUST draft 7 players in 6 rounds.
2) see rule 7. (new owners will be random & choose from available slots) draft will take place in theme forum and 
    will be posted as soon league is full.
3) Off The Clock is unlimited (I do get grumpy after waiting 48 hrs. for a selection)
    On The Clock schedule will be sm'd to all owners.
    With only 6 Rds. would like it to be entirely Off The Clock. 
    Probably will go On The Clock 2nd or 3rd Rd. (OTC @ 1 HR. intervals)

tadmand I've played in open leagues with you (a few moons ago) and I believe you'd thrive in the ODL. 
It's usually filled with elite owners. Which explains my 29 win season 41! 
Thanks   
ps - draft is serpentine ABABAB* (owner with first overall pick also has last pick in draft) 6th Rd. 2 picks per owner
*corrected

draft is ABABAB

NOT abbaba

That's a MAJOR change and immensely favors closer to 24 picks.

I'm in but we need to get going on it guys!

Yes Ash your right.
Last draft (Nov. 2012) season LXI was ABABAB
thanks for the correction!
last pick in Rd. 1 (24) has first pick in Rd. 2 (25) 
last pick in Rd. 2 (48) has first pick in Rd. 3 (49)
last pick in Rd. 3 (72) has first pick in Rd. 4 (73)
last pick in Rd. 4 (96) has first pick in Rd. 5 (97)
last pick in Rd. 5 (120) has first pick in Rd. 6 (121 & 122)
all of Rd.  6 is 2 picks

Sorry,
Hope this clears up any confusion going forward

Thanks vancem your 18.
I agree let's fill this thing but it was just posted Sun. 3/10 and we're 3/4 full.
That's good for WifS lately

Ok, I have some unfinished business with a few guys here, so I'm back in.

Not sure if you are trying to recreate the playoffs for slotting or not. What I know for sure is this:

R1 East 4/5 natenoy over bluenote75
R2 East 1/4 natenoy over vancem
R3 East 2/4 natenoy over tarheel1991
Finals eleibowitz over natenoy

99% sure eleibowitz defeated ncmusician_7 in the West to reach the finals

Is tar in yet btw? Should save him a spot or sm him if not, a title and a final-4 in the last two, so I'd assume he'd be playing again.
3/12/2013 10:58 PM
Thanks nate.  Haven't heard from tarheel but I'll sm him right now.  Just to be clear div.are random order.
Thanks for season 41 playoff update.  Now we just need West playoff and we'll have draft order set
for season LXII.  That's 19.

Seapilot, Thanks for quick reply. So, building a team is similar to what we typically do except we pick a player in the serpentine and then decide which of his years to use on our roster.  Is that right?  I imagine that many an owners plans go astray when his needed player is picked ahead of him.  Seems like fun.  Count me in.
