Welcome to all the recent signups! Thanks guys...I hope you will find this a fun and enjoyable league.
We are getting down to the nitty gritty. From my experience, the final few spots fill very fast, so it could be a week at most until we are ready to go. In the next few days, I will compile a sitemail list and let everyone know when we will get going. I will also randomize the draft order soon, perhaps even before we fill, using the NY lottery quik pick. The way I think I will do it is each owner will get the top of hour quik pick numbers for a specific day in the order everyone signed up. In other words, I am the first name on the list so my numbers will be the quick draw at 12:00 am on that day. Tpmuvoss signed up 2nd on the list and will get the 1:00 am numbers. isacqbs58 signed up third and will get the 2:00 am numbers and so on. The 24th name on the list will get the midnight spot the next day. Once we have all the #'s, I will add up the first FIVE of those numbers....then lowest total gets the first pick, 2nd lowest gets the 2nd pick and so on.
Once I have the draft order set, I will complie a draft schedule, in half hour increments. First pick for each day will be at ten am, and last pick each day will be ten pm. You can pick before your draft time if you want, and are encouraged to do so so that we can stay ahead of the schedule each day. Take it from me, there is always one yahoo that will wait til one minute before his draft slot expires, and slow everything down if we are hours ahead. But thats the way it goes. Be ready for it and try NOT to be that yahoo if you can help it. If your pick is coming up soon and we are ahead of schedule, rather than wait for your scheduled pick time, send a proxy list of possible picks via sitemail to me or someone else in the league )preferably someone who has recently picked).
Thats about it for now. I'll make the rest up as we go along lol. Oh and I still could use a volunteer to help me take some proxy picks and post them for me during the morning and early afternoons. I will handle the rest. Anyone? Anyone?
