@chad72 sorry for the late reply, I'm flexible it looks like on the dates 29th/30th/31st August and 1st/2nd Sept. 

 

Being European I'd prefer not too late our time, but it wouldn't be the first last night I've pulled if needs must.

So far:

 

@buccolts - available on August 29th, 30th for evenings, only in morning for September 1st

@Juanjo - available any day as long as time is early enough in terms of Spain time

@Valpo2004 - Labor Day weekend preferable, evenings preferable

@spoonfish - Weekend preferable, evenings are fine

@crazycolt1 - flexible, no matter what

@chad72 - flexible, no matter what

@Virtuoso80 - the evening time slots seem to be fine on all days

@Bluefire4 - weekend evening time slots seem to be fine

@SteelCityColt - most time slots on discussed dates are fine as long as time is early enough in terms of European time

@IndyD4U - flexible, except August 25th

 

@HOFClipboardHolder and @Rich Cannon are the only ones yet to respond

 

I might do a 6 pm ET timing on September 1st, to accommodate folks in Europe, instead of 7 pm ET. @buccolts - you may be the odd man out in all of this, unfortunately, might want to prepare yourself. :thmup:

Yes, I see this as a realistic possibilty.

I guess I'll educate myself on 'pre-draft rankings', and how to use it.

What about September 1st? That seems to be where the consensus seems to be going for most.

Quick question/thought:

 

In order to randomize the draft order, I am just going to use a randomizer with the list of team names from 1st to last in a row. Then place that in the draft order.

 

I would like to offer the opportunity for a few of you to be able to view the randomizing. I am going to randomize it 3 times in a row and whatever order it ends at, that is what it is. To make the process transparent, I would like to do a GoToMeeting for the same.  Even if a few of you are available,  that is good enough for me to let everyone know it was done right.

 

August 16th, I would like to do the randomizing and will send out an invite from nfl.com for you all to view.  Let me know which ones of you would be available on August 16th at 7 pm ET and I will send out an invite for the randomizing.

The commish in my other league does this also. Good idea.

I should be able to witness this event.

That is it folks, nothing fancy to change regarding rules.

 

Just a waiver wire happy medium change where it will be a case of "make the claim and move to last" for the first 7 weeks. After the first 7 weeks, starting with week 8, it will be the inverse order of standings.

Thanks for taking the time to set all of this up and showing the patience it took to give everyone a chance to have input.

Great job.

Is there a reason we need to be there if you are just going to randomize the list?

He just needs some witnesses in case he pulls the first pick himself.

Exactly!!! I just need a couple of folks to be there to ensure a transparent process and the draft order presented to the group indeed did happen due to randomization. :)

Having the 1st pick in this league can be a curse. Having the 1st pick in the draft go down before a full game was even played hurt me big time. It also means your waiver wire pick goes to last automatically. Personally I like picks 4-8. It kind of puts you in the middle of the talent pool.

Oh yes!

Johnson stung me last year, in another league.

Chad,

 

You're doing a great job! Thanks for stepping up and keeping this league alive. I figured the draft would be coming up soon, so I wanted to pop in and see how it was going, and it looks great!

 

Maybe someday I can return to the fray :) Until then, I'm working on the next Andrew Luck here.

Congratulations to @Virtuoso80 (Derek) for winning the Colts elite league!!! Great league guys!!!

 

Wish you all a Happy New Year!!! 

 

@crazycolt1 told us he will not be back next year, can he confirm that is still the case? If yes, the 2 spots vacant will be that of the 12th place @HOFClipboardHolder and that of @crazycolt1 (I am the 11th place, so I will wait for confirmation).

 

@Colt92 can send the top 2 guys from the Joe's league our way whenever he can. :)

    • You see how that's a conflation of two separate issues? (With a sprinkling of a third issue, tbh.)   1) Team A picking at #15 might have a problem with Hockenson, maybe their evaluation of his talent or character or whatever. Maybe they have a second round grade on him. Team B picking at #26 might have Hockenson as a top ten player on their board. And maybe a handful of other teams between those two have higher grades on different players that align with their needs, or maybe they aren't disciplined in their approach or have different draft philosophies. Maybe some of those teams don't see positional value in TEs, so they pass on Hockenson, leaving him available at #26. Again, the point is that not every team has the same board, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.   2) You're adding in the quality of the evaluation. Team B might think more highly of the player than anyone else, and maybe they're right and he turns out to be a stud. Maybe they're wrong, and he's a dud. But that's a question of player evaluation, not draft strategy.   3) Gronk was a second rounder himself. And he's turning out to be one of the best TEs in NFL history. Anyone saying 'Hockenson is the next Gronk' isn't being an honest evaluator, and I don't want my GM drafting players because he's convinced they'll be the next HOF player at any position. The odds stacked heavily against that. (I said the same last year to everyone claiming Barkley was a guaranteed HOFer who would singlehandedly elevate any offense to the top of the league.) That's a way to rationalize drafting a player you're in love with. It's not a disciplined draft strategy.
    • Agreed. My over arching point to BPA vs needs discussion is that the terms themselves can have different meanings, so the various good points made can get lost in the wash.   But I do think the preponderance of thinking lists BPA agnostic of attributes for a given scheme, which is how the national websites tend to do it.  So when GMs pick the 45th ranked player with pick 33, many criticize the pick as "reaching" for a need because they they don't stop to think that 5 or 6 players ranked in between weren't even considered a good fit for the team to begin with.   
    • Him and Lewis will elevate that draft class even higher. 
    • You're putting your own "spin" on this.  It has everything to do with what Ballard chose to do.   Ballard could have prevented his players from hitting free agency at all by overpaying them in the first place.   He doesn't want to overpay, so he "allows" them to hit free agency, find out that no team will overpay, then "brings" them back at their true value.
    • Yes I know, I wasn't going to list all possibilities.  I just listed one possibility to illustrate there is more to it than one person "letting" him test the market then "bringing" him back.     My point was about the tone of the comment coupled with the lack of substance supporting the tone of the comment.   But I see throughout the thread that typical sensitivities about broader things have surfaced so y'all carry on.
