Welcome back, Baldy!! So that means we only have two spots in question. I've PM'ed each of those members to see if they are coming back. Beyond that, I'd like to set a date today for the draft. I am going to preliminary set the draft date and time for Saturday, August 31st, at 2pm EST.

This can be adjusted, but my experience is that if we don't have more than one or two objections we should keep the date and time as is. We are likely to lose one or two people to the dreaded auto-draft (auto draft seems to make excellent teams). So, if you have a conflict, please say so, but please understand if we don't move the time/date.

Looking forward to this!!

Kindly,

Merc


This is the one weekend that I cannot make. I am in England this weekend for a family wedding. If we could move it to the previous week it would be perfect. If not I will auto draft.

So sorry to hear it, Irish. Unfortunately, i can't do the previous weekend and anything prior to that is going to be a problem since we would be so far out from the start of the season. My sincere apologies, but if I am not mistaken you've done autodraft before and won the league, right? Anyway, so sorry it looks bleak to change the date.

Saturday draft is fine with me but i work until 4 pm est so if we could move it back to 5pm that would be great....


It sounds to me like the consensus is that 5pm EST will work better and I am fine with that.

So, unless there aren't major objections, we are set for August 31st at 5pm EST.

Bingo. We have all 12 coming back. Everyone is confirmed, and the date and time is set. We are well on our way.

The next issue we have is the draft order. In the past I've put the names all into an online "randomizer" and set the order right after we have all confirmations. However, last year someone suggested I simply set the ESPN website that hosts our league and draft to randomize the draft order an hour before the draft. I thought I'd ask the members of the league, would you rather have me set the order using an online randomizer now, or wait until draft day and let the site do it. Any opinions?

Yea I rather know, it makes it a little easier to make a big board knowing when you are drafting, an hour before kinda stinks.

Fair enough. I will give it one more day for others to weigh in with their opinions on the issue of randomizing the draft order now or on draft day. If the consensus of responders is to randomize now, I will do it on Monday and post results.

As I will be auto drafting I would prefer to know well before the draft. I need to know how I should lay out my draft board after all Wink

Oh, and also, when you get a moment please resign into your ESPN account and make sure you can access the site for the league still. The draft will be on the ESPN site again and I just want to make sure everyone can get on well before draft day. Thanks!
