Congrats to dh555-
Great seven game series to decide championship-

I really enjoyed the season, and had high hopes to bring home my first championship-
Still wish I had not selected Cliff Ray with second pick.

I'm not playing open leagues - sticking with ODL - DDL and the 'Pie Progressives

That's pretty stiff competition, so it may be a while before I'm in  position again to win one.

I haven't been with WIS site for long, but have enjoyed it -
Probably will not be as much fun when I start missing out on playoff slots -
which looks like a strong probability with my current ODL and 'Pie Prog.' teams. ha.

thanks...it was a great series

getting a chip in theme leagues is way harder but sooo much more enjoyable/satisfying...wise decision imo to ditch ols

I note that about 20 or so members aren't saying much, this makes me think that 21 owners are good with the situation in the DDL draft. I love the draft, I also understand that some members have families and if my memory serves me right that means a busy weekend having fun. I proposed we take the weekend off for their benefit.
I just worry about making the best pick I can when it is my turn, and mentally crossing off everyone who has been taken off my list.

I always prefer a standard ABBAABBA snake draft.  ABBABA or whatever it is we did in the 70's and apparently are here too seems like overthinking mumbo jumbo.  I've heard the explanations why that is fairer than a normal snake draft and I really don't buy it, but hey, if that's the way it is here, I'm fine just dealing with it.

the reason we do abba in this league and not abab is pretty simple...the top guys are so much better than the rest of the 1st rounders

we could just do slot selection for the next decade...id be curious to see what everyone complaining about abba would do if they had to make a decision between the #5 pick and the #23 pick

In most cases I'll hold on to 1st-9th pick after that I may take 20 something. I hate the middle...

"beat it nurse!...come back when youre a broad"

ill take Dirty Work for my team name...great movie and fits my teams style of play

I hear what you are saying and I am NOT complaining.  Just saying I don't think it matters man.  There is still a different value between the 30th and the 48th pick as well, I think...so it evens out down the line.  1 to 24 then 24 to 1 is just easier to follow too which would make it easier for proxies and so on.  Just my opinion.  If I picked last in the first round, I would still feel this way.  But whatever guys...it is what it is.  No complaints.

U just said 21 or so other owners weren't saying anything so I just chimed in
