My fellow Americans, you'll have to excuse me, there's an opening in a PPR league in the next room.

@Narcosys  I'm in.

 

LOL, your my new favorite member. Unfortunately you're probably going to be drafting last if everyone else joins from last year.

I see the draft is "offline".  Is it the "snake" format?  I would actually like drafting last if it means I get two picks in a row each time.

Yes it is snake.  The date and time will be set later once all teams are filled and we can pick a good date.  Should be able to view the league rules and get the jist of everything.

Sure why not.

Awesome,  thanks. 

 

Do you, or anyone else,  have any ideas or changes they may like to see?

 

Thoughts on how it was run last year?

 

@BPindy @IndyD4U @Btown_Colt @Coltman51

 

@Lucky Colts Fan , you weren't here last year but do you have any thoughts after looking things over?

 

 

Also, how long do we want to give @PuntersArePeopleToo before we start to look for a replacement?

Anybody open to making TD passes 6 points for QBs? Makes the difference between good/bad QBs a little more realistic and makes the first few rounds of the draft a bit more interesting IMO

As the league manager I don't consider myself to have too much of a vote, but I can see how it helps non mobile QB's compete against the more mobile,  but less throwing ones.  

 

Again, I try to get a super majority before I make any changes. Which in this instance it's 7 votes out of 10.

 

Can I get a vote on this?

 

I have @BPindy and @Lucky Colts Fan

Voting for.  

 

I will ask my wife and my friend for theirs. 

 

@IndyD4U @Bluefire4 @Btown_Colt @Coltman51

 

What do you say?

 

I will also go ahead and remove Punters from the league. 

 

 

 

So you anyone else reading this,  we have an opening.

Currently our draft order will be reverse order of last years final rankings (from championship, not overall season). With how I did it last year, if there was a vacancy I would give people the option to move up or down, and once all that was settled, allow the new people to get the spot that is left.

 

I could continue to do this, or is there a different way you want to set up the draft?  In another thread they suggested the reverse order pick their positions.  Any thoughts?

Let's all welcome @chad72. He has graciously volunteered to fill in our 10th spot.  I'll start working on draft orders and filling in the gaps.

its still quite early to know for sure, but what timeframe is everyone looking at to do the draft. I prefer the last two weekends in August (18th - 20th / 25th - 27th) or the first weekend of September (1st - 3rd). 

 

Also, please let me know what time zones you are in. It will be trickier this year and may have an odd time so be flexible. I am working out of the Greenwich mean time zone. That means I am 5 hours ahead of you in the East coast and 8 hours ahead of you in the west coast. However, I promise to get the best possible time for everyone. It might be an afternoon (1pm - 3pm CST) A night time one would be quite difficult for three of us to pull off (three members are in Europe). But I understand the difficulties of trying to conduct a draft with children, that's why nap time or bed time can be best.

I think that Sunday afternoon, Sept 3rd would be best.  It will be the only Sunday without football games to watch anyway, might as well do the draft then.

As usual, it makes no difference to me. I'm pretty flexible so I'll just go with what everyone decides. I am in the Eastern time zone.

Just make sure we don't clash with the CFF Elite league draft time. 

 

(OR)

 

Make a decision on the time in this league first so that those that are in both leagues can be clear about their availability for the draft in the other league. :)

Yeah, I can do September 3rd, I am fine with anywhere between 1 and 5 pm ET. I am afraid both leagues are going to end up on September 3rd with 6 hours of my day spent on FF drafts. :) 

 

Regardless, setting a time helps us all plan for it.

I haven't seen the scheduling from the other leagues. That sucks. If that is the case then we can try to reschedule for the 2nd if everyone else can make it.

Go ahead and schedule this for September 3rd, the other league has not scheduled anything yet. Then, I can ask the other league for an alternate date.

So September 3rd will be our date.  Give me a good 2-3 hour block of time that you will be available to conduct the draft and I will finalize it in our settings. Thank you.

September 3rd is not really a good day for me but if anything I will have my draft queue set up. 1PM-4PM may be the best timeframe for me but even then I may have to exit early.

    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.   
    • During the Browns game, Venturi said S was one our strongest positions.  Not saying i agree, but i dont lose sleep over it either.
    • “...when he gets the locker room strong enough”.   That still  means drafting lots of high character guys. That’s our default. 
    • A backup to Castonzo who is his eventual replacement.
