I am cool with starting whenever. Also, I agree that couchmanagers and MDC are in for a rude awakening when their user % drops precipitously......

Two thoughts. Can you contact people in the US from NZ by phone without it costing a fortune? Any thought of having a backup pinch drafter who could make your picks if time is expiring?


Don't know anyone per se in US (I'm English), other than you guys through message boards, and suspect it would cost a fortune to call from a UK mobile to US. Pinch drafter is a possibility. Both Rock and O-S were kind enough to fill in other cafe leagues last year when I was away for weekends.

I will have internet access in NZ via laptop, and I can get it on mobile, but again don't know how much it will cost. Most likely, I will be able to look once or twice a day, at beginning and end, and then email/ pm picks ahead. Third: you're actually in all my cafe leagues (Cold Stove & Brushback), so maybe you can be point of contact for all?

But I think we now need to start asap.

I kinda like Couchmanagers. It only costs 2.99 for someone to create a draft. The person who creates the draft can make it a free draft and anyone who has an account on Couchmanagers can join. If you want, I'll pay the 2.99 and set up the draft. Just let me know.

Sweet. After reading the fine print it seems we don't all have to pay. I created an account, I'll get a draft set up and see if youse guys can join it.
