Why on earth is Spain 6 hrs ahead of US ET, while London that is slightly in line with it, is only 5 hrs ahead? I never understood that. They never changed since the World War II days when they aligned with Nazi Germany, is that right?

 

Actually from my research that appears to be correct.

That's correct. The fascist dictator we had in World War II days set here the same Germany time zone, and it has not been changed since.

To accomodate the guys in Europe and the guys in the US, we will go with August 31st, 11 am ET on a Saturday. Have your hungry man breakfast and coffee, and be ready. :)

I will send you a guys an invite for a GoToMeeting in the next week or so where I will randomly sort the team names 3 times to establish a draft order and let it known a couple of weeks prior to the draft. That should help you do mocks with that order in mind.

 

Thanks.

Just sent a link for a GoToMeeting to all league members in case you are interested, to witness the 3 random sortings of team names to establish draft order at 11 am ET this Saturday, August 17th, 2019.

 

You can join that link and see me there, it will take only about 2 minutes of your time once 11 am kicks in. :)

OK, so far:

 

1. Half-PPR: @Juanjo yes, @Valpo2004 yes (indifferent is a yes to me), @chad72 yes

2. 1 bonus points for every 100 rushing or receiving yards: @Juanjo yes, @Valpo2004 no, @chad72 yes

3. 1 bonus point for 400 yards passing: @Juanjo yes, @Valpo2004 no, @chad72 yes

 

Others, please chime in. Those would be:

 

@Virtuoso80 @SteelCityColt @IndyD4U @spoonfish @Rich Cannon @SouthernIndianaNDFan @Chucklez @onebad150 @Bluefire4

 

As always, no decisions are taken in our league without a consensus. So, if you agree or disagree with something, please contribute. :)

Actually put it in the calendar so I don't forget! I best catch up on my draft research.... or go with the tried and tested panic clicking because I've let the timer run down.

No one showed up for the draft randomization GoToMeeting. Waited 10 minutes and decided to go ahead and do it myself.

 

After randomizing 3 times, this is the draft order I ended with:

 

@Btown_Colt

@chad72

@Rich Cannon

@IndyD4U

@Juanjo

@spoonfish

@onebad150

@Chucklez

@SteelCityColt

@Virtuoso80

@Valpo2004

@Bluefire4

 

I have updated the draft order in the nfl.com league, you can verify that it matches what I posted above. Please make sure you show up for the actual live draft on August 31st, 2019 at 11 am ET. :)

 

Happy mocking with this order in mind!!!

Everyone ready for the draft? I've made a bit of an error and I am half-drunk already. (It's the middle of the afternoon here in the UK before anyone gets worried about me :default_20smile:)

I can't believe I missed the draft, it's been a long week at work and I work 3rd shift.  Just realized it was today.  But it seems like the auto draft didnt do too bad.

Yeah, you were probably the only one on auto draft. Now you get to play me in the first game.

    • I see some posts in this thread that would make it seem that way... I am definitely not, just want to point that out, haha! I even said in my first post on here that I could care less about the Pats fans. But I was agreeing with @King Colt ‘s OP that it did come off as rude when the fans booed, given that  team has given NE so many championships. I feel “meh” about the calls that didn’t go their way, don’t really care if this is the beginning of their downward spiral. I just didn’t expect the fans to boo and when they did my initial reaction was, wow, after all those championships? That’s rude. Not that they are the worst in the world, but definitely hypocritical if those same fans were criticizing those that booed Luck.    However, I also said I understood why they were booing, out of shock of seeing that home game winning streak disappear... same as I understood why the fans booed out of shock of hearing about Luck’s retirement. But sympathy for the Pats? Or their fans? Nah... never! 
    • You are jumping to inaccurate conclusions.  The the options in the poll were worded badly and some options were left out which skewed the results.  It could easily be interpreted as people think JB is average - below average but there aren't many better options so we are stuck with him until we are able to draft his replacement or something unlikely/crazy happens and a good QB actually hits FA.       Cut him and keep looking.  I would rather be terrible a couple years and be in position to go after top QBs until we find one, than finish 8-8 (give or take a game) and be stuck at mediocre.      See above ... at least we know and can move on and aren't stuck in mediocrity... and if they play that bad than we likely have a shot at Lawrence. I would be fine with a one win season if it meant we got Lawrence in 2021. 
    • Bunch of negative people on this thread. With Adam V being on IR I bet we are the youngest team in the league. How can you guys be so negative already for next season.
    • The Saints are banged up on defense. The ONLY way the Colts can beat them is to keep Brees on the sideline by running the &$*% ball and playing great defense, like they did in KC.     The Colts still have a shot at the wildcard too, if Pittsburg losses 3, Tenn loses 2 and Oakland loses a game.       But they’d still have to win 3.
    • Haha! Please, don’t judge my old city’s slogan based simply off of your fan experience at football games! (Now, if you want to add the road rage, pushing each other in lines at the supermarket, neighbors getting into fights in the middle of the street, etc... now you have a true basis for your argument  )
