Am I seeing this right - 8 am ET on September 2nd is our draft? At least that is what my notification says. :)

I saw that too.  I can make it work, but I thought we were doing Sunday, September 3rd, in the afternoon?

 

No?

As long as it is not a typo, I will be prepared.

Sorry, I will change it. The app is adjusting to my time zone, I assumed it was basing it off of Est.  Thanks for the catch.

So is it the 2nd or 3rd? 3rd is much better for me as I will be on the road on the 2nd, but I can make it work if I need to

I'll try to go through and figure out the draft order this weekend. Be on the look for your names being tagged.  Like last year, vacated draft positions will be offered up to the person below that vacated spot and then above vacated spot if not taken.  Once it's all settled down, @Lucky Colts Fan get first dibs on one of the two positions, (as he joined first) and then @chad72. Sorry but you'll be getting what's left.

@Bluefire4

 

You're in second for draft order.  The first position is available if you want. If you don't,  it will be an option for either @Lucky Colts Fan or @chad72to take. No one will be able to jump you. 

 

The 10th draft position is also available. Since I am in the 9th position, and will not be dropping down, that position is locked in.

 

I cannot remember if I offered up vacated spots (because of moves), to other people or left them open. So I will let everyone decide. 

 

For instance,  if bluefire moves up, do I then offer the #2 position to @IndyD4U (and so on) or leave it as one of the spots for the new guys. 

 

That is a lot of movement in draft order, but if someone devises not to move,  it licks the spot. I'm in favor of just one move,  but it's not my choice.  

 

@Btown_Colt, @Coltman51, @BPindy

 

 

Just in case there's confusion, If #3 didn't take #2, #4 would not get offered, and #3 would be locked as vacated.

I will take draft position #10 if @Lucky Colts Fan doesn't want it. 

 

For some reason, I thought I was locked into the #10 position the last time I checked.

Nope. It just so happens one of the vacated spots was 10. If i were to take it, then #9 would be available.  

 

But I'm not.   However,  how do you feel about the #1 spot.  If #2 takes it, should I offer #2 to #3, and so on?  

 

Just in case there's confusion, If #3 didn't take #2, #4 would not get offered. 

 

The other option is if #2 takes #1, then #2 is locked as vacated. Which is currently default.

Yeah, tell me when I can make my choice without someone with higher dibs rights in the way i.e. after all those with higher rights have chosen. :)

Lol, 

 

But I need a vote on the options.

 

Do I lock after one move,  or continue to offer down until someone chooses not to?

If @chad72 wants spot 10 and spots 3-9 are already set, let @Bluefire4 pick 1 or 2, and I'll take the other.  That seems easiest, but if anyone else really wants 1 or 2, it doesn't matter to me, I'll take whatever position nobody else wants.

Lol,

 

Current draft order, reverse of last year's season standings and taking into account teams that left.

 

1.

2. @Bluefire4

3. @IndyD4U

4. Luck be a lady

5. @BPindy

6. @Btown_Colt

7. Team hulce 

8. @Coltman51

9. Me

10. 

 

We have to fill the vacant spots with @chad72 and @Lucky Colts Fan

 

However, to prevent new people from possibly getting best positions, I offer vacant spots first to the person below and then above.

 

So #1 is being offered to #2. If he doesn't take it,  and since there is No one above #1, it is locked as vacant and will be filled by one of the new guys. 

 

#10 is also vacant,  since I do not want to drop down,  that spot is locked. 

 

Here is where things change and a vote is needed.  If #2 takes #1, that leaves #2 vacant.  If I follow like I did last year, #2 would be locked and become a vacant spot for one of the news guys to fill.

 

However, the league has the option to change that and have sort of a continual offering.  In this setting, #2 would then be offered to #3. IF #3 takes it,  then #4 would be offered #3.

 

However, if #3 declines #2, Then #4 would not get offered #2 and would become locked.

 

So, do you want me to lock it after one move like last year or do a continuous offering?

I gotta say,  I am slacking this year.  Haven't even looked at doing a mock draft, nor even looked at a top 300 PPR board.

I am already number crunching. :) However, there is still plenty of time. A handful of mocks, you pretty much know who is going to be around and what mistakes you made those mocks, in your own terms.

September 3rd @ 1 pm but this is Narcosys league. I was just notifying you and him because I saw where you had asked to join but it was already full. It looks like someone has dropped out now so there should be a spot open, but it is up to @Narcosys

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
