Going to be starting the league again here soon and looking to see who's interested in participating again this year.

 

Once I get all the ins and outs, I'll start determining draft order.  If you are in, please provide some tentative weekends or  weekdays that you think would work for you.  Thanks and look forward to this season.

I have made all the changes that I addressed in the league email. 

With this funky season we are about to have I have decided to push the money league vote until next year.

 

However, @Matthew Gilbert has not logged in since May 19th, and if I do not get an answer from him by Friday, I will remove him from the league. 

 

@Jared Cisneros, @Peterk2011, and @w87r are the priority order of fill for that spot. Unless the first two do not wish to be part of the league anymore. I am referencing their requests to join from last year.

 

Draft position choice order is based off of last years final standings and is as follows:

 

1. @Lucky Colts Fan

2. @BPindy

3. @onebad150

4. @WarGhost21

5. @Bluefire4

6. @Matthew Gilbert

7. Luck Ness Monster

8. @Btown_Colt

9. Myself

10. Team Hulce

 

Please provide me some dates that you might be available to draft between now and September 6th,

 

@Lucky Colts Fan you're on the clock for your draft position.

I'll join if it's for fun. Not afraid to play for money or anything, I just don't have a paypal or credit card, and am not going to go through a check or someone else's credit card to play online. Normally, I use gift cards or play on fanduel. So I'll join for now or until you eventually play for money. If it stays for fun, I'd play every year. @Narcosys

Dates for draft?

 

Maybe Sept 5th or 6th?

 

I know that's kinda late, but we only have 2 preseason games to observe and figure out who's healthy, how teams use guys, etc. not to mention last-minute suspensions or changes to the schedule...

 

:dunno:

Now I need dates a times you most prefer.  I'll consolidate and come up with the best options. 

 

Please give me your dates and times.  If everyone says "idc" then I have nothing to go off of and will just be up to me.  I can do that,  I just prefer to get group consensus. 

 

Thanks for all the quick replies so far.

I'll do August 2nd at 6:00 PM EST. That'll give plenty of time to prepare with trades and everything after the draft.

That's way too early IMO.  That's before any preseason games.  Players get hurt in preseason games every year, and in drafts this early in the past, I've had guys I drafted in the 1st round get injured in a preseason game.  I even drafted Peyton Manning in a couple early drafts before the 2011 season because they didn't release that he wasn't playing until late in the preseason...

 

Please no.

 

The season doesn't start until Sept. 10th (at the earliest).  Let's wait until the chips have fallen regarding injuries, suspensions, COVID delays, etc.  That way, nobody has to try and scramble to replace a guy that they drafted high who isn't even going to play this year.

 

I don't have a set work schedule, so I'll have to be flexible as far a specific day and time, but as far as a window for when to do the draft:  I think last week of Aug or first week of Sept would be ideal.

That's fine, tell Narcosys that and we'll figure out a date.

I agree August 2, is way too early. I am flexible but I am thinking late August or even better yet early September. That way we will have a better idea what league is doing and what the final rosters might look like

The latest we can do is Sunday September 6th.

 

The earliest we'd all like to do is probably tune weekend of August 22nd and 23rd.

I think it may be too early to determine. With there only being two preseason games, I don't know how teams are going to determine when the starters will play.

 

I think it's best if we schedule it after the preseason concludes, but I should be fine with whatever is decided since I'm working from home.

It's possible they cancel it all together

As long as it’s after 6 pm ET, I can do any week night or pretty much any time on the weekends. Also want to wait until preseason (if there is one) is over

Can everyone support the weekend of the 29th and 30th?

 

Sounds good to me.

 

I should be available early on the 29th, so maybe like a noon draft?

 

If it's the 30th, I probably wouldn't be available until after 6pm.

    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
    • Once again, I agree with u in sine points. Also as the season progresses, teams get more film ti look at. I am just not a big beleiver in this scheme. Feel it is out dated.
