My guess is you'll get a number of queries if there's an opening,  but if you get in a bind, and need someone, let me know. I'm in a couple of other leagues, but willing to fill in.

So if we want to do it on a weekend, we only have the following dates: Aug 24-6 & Aug 31st - Sep 2nd 

 

Is anyone ok with doing it during  a weekday in August? (Aug 6th - 8th I will be out)

Hey I apologize, I listed the wrong person and left you out. Are you interested in playing again this year?  If so, what weekends (FRI-SUN) are you available for?  Keeping in mind we only have two weekends available for us (See above two posts) so maybe do it on a Weekday. 

 

Again, I am sorry.

No problem and yes I’ll be back. I’m easy, tell me when the draft is and I’ll be there. Thanks

Is everyone available for the Aug 24th-26th weekend?

 

If so which days and times?

 

PS: 3 people in the league live in Europe so we're 5 hours ahead of EST. So keep that in mind as a 6pm start would be 11pm for us. Thanks!

@Matthew Gilbert

 

Welcome our newest and 10th member of the league!  Join us in our discussions and let talk draft dates and time.

 

ALL: @Bluefire4, @WarGhost21, @Btown_Colt, @onebad150, @BPindy, @Lucky Colts Fan

 

I am thinking maybe Saturday, 25th of August. Would you guys prefer a morning, afternoon, or late afternoon time?

 

4pm EST is 10pm over here for myself and my wife.

 

The league vote last year ended up squeaking by to have the draft order be set by reverse final season standings. However, you got to pick your position. So last place gets to pick first and then the winner gets the last position. In this case we have two new people, so unfortunately new guys get messed over and would be the last two to pick their positions (based on when they joined).

 

The previous way we did draft order was straight up reverse order, so last place drafted in the #1 position (Which to many is not the best position to be in). Then the guys that left, their spots were open for the people who were ranked above or below to drop into, and then new guys fill in accordingly.

 

Example: If Chad72 was ranked 5th, and Lucky Colts Fan was 4th, and Btown_Colt was 6th. Then Lucky would get the option to drop down, if he didn't, Btown could move up. If neither did, then One Bad would move into that position.

 

Since we have two new people, I would like a revote on this.   Would you prefer the way we did it last year, or by picking your position based on your final season rankings?

 

My vote is for picking the position, as it better facilitates the purpose of last place team getting the better position. However, as the League Manager I withhold from voting on most things. Only in the event of a tie (someone could abstain) then I would break the tie. I would like to get 6/9 votes for an option before implementing.

 

If I don't get a supermajority for either, then the previous vote will stand and people will pick their position.  Thank you for your help.

Is the order going to be based off of regular season finish or playoff finish?

A Sunday would work better for me, since I usually work on Saturdays.

 

What about the 26th?

 

It would also be nice to see all the week 3 preseason games before finalizing draft boards (I'd hate to draft a player just to watch him blow out a knee on his first play that same night).

 

So maybe one of the days during preseason week 4, from the 27th-Sept 2nd?  We should have a better picture of who is healthy and who is starting by then.  :thmup:

If we do it on the 26th, what time of day would be best for everyone? 

 

I have gotten enough votes that last years style will not be able to reach the required vote count.  So look out for PM's and mentions so you can pick your position. Want to give everyone enough time to mock draft your positions. Thank you.

 

Speaking of @Lucky Colts Fan you have first choice on which position you want to draft from.

Is that EST?  Three members of the league are 5 hours ahead of EST, so the latest we would be able to conduct it is probably 4pm EST.

"With the 1st overall pick, Lucky Colts Fan selects Antonio Brown"

 

Unless AB gets injured before our draft, I'll go ahead and take the pole position.  :D

 

Also, if we have all the spots filled, you might want to edit the title of the thread.  :thmup:

Ah ok, misread at first. So position 1.

This isn't you actually picking, it is what spot that you want to draft from. Meaning 1st overall pick, 2nd, 3rd, so on.  You tell me which spot and that's where I'll slot you.

 

Also, @Bluefire4 has not confirmed yet. 

 

I know.  I was just giving the reason for why I want to pick 1st.  haha 

 

Sorry, I used racing lingo.  Pole position =  1st starting position, so I will pick 1st.  :thmup:

Can I choose to move down from 1st before the draft, or would that mess everything up?

 

For instance, if AB (or Rothelisberger for that matter) gets injured a few days before our draft, I would no longer want to be 1st.

I have edited the main post to show our draft order and will update it as we go. @Bluefire4 is next to select. I have emailed him, pm'd him, and obviously mentioned him. He logs on daily but he is not responding here or elsewhere. It says he has joined in ESPN, however when i activated the league, it said everyone had joined...even those who dropped out. So i cannot count that.

 

If i don't hear from him by Monday, we will have to drop him so we can fill his spot. We will then continue the draft order. Next is @WarGhost21, so be ready on Monday with two positions you want to draft from.

If you're going to change, change now, because I am locking people in after they select. Because if I let you move down later, then someone else gets pushed, and so on. Too much trouble and not fair to others who might be planning for that position.

    • 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.
