Ok, I'm actually jumping the gun by a few hours, but dang it we've waited long enough.
League members for the 2007 season will be:
9. Snakes Gould
11. RugbyD (waiting confirmation) confirmed
12. johnsamo (waiting confirmation) confirmed
Here's how we'll proceed. Mark your calendars.
I'll ask Madison or some other well-known Cafe figure to post a random ordering of the numbers 1-12. We'll match that to the list above to determine draft order for round 0, where we will choose the draft order.
March 5: (Monday)
We will begin round 0, right here. The thread's already set up, I'll fill in the order later. For this round, we will observe a 24 hour time limit. Feel free to use less than that. I'd like to have this one round wrapped up by the end of the week, can't imagine it will take that long.
March 12:(the next Monday)
We will begin the actual draft. Provided the site is set up by then, we will use a private room at http://www.couchmanagers.com
. Results will be copied back here, and I will keep a list of players taken, overall pick list, rosters, etc. Might recruit some help for that. You can all do your own rosters.
A few things to know about couchmanagers if you've not tried it out yet. It will save us countless hours. There is a queue, just like with Yahoo's draft room so you can set a short list of the guys you're eyeing next. There is a setting you can turn on to automatically select the next guy in your queue when it is your turn. If your queue is empty it will wait for you to pick manually. There is a built in 12 hour time limit per pick. If you go over your time limit, it will select, in order; the next guy from your queue, the next guy in your custom rankings, or the next guy in the default rankings that fits your roster. The default rankings are kinda sketchy, so plan on spending a little bit of time re-ranking players. Oh, and if you ever completely miss (go over time), it will set your team to auto and you cannot turn it off
. So be aware of that. Not the end of the world, you just have to make sure you always keep a few guys in your queue. And it won't let you pick someone who's already been drafted, so we won't have to deal with that.
The custom rosters and private league features aren't ready yet, but I've been talking with the guy for a couple of weeks now and he planned to have them ready today or tomorrow. If for whatever reason we aren't able to make couchmanagers work for us, we will still have time to do it the old fashioned way.
I've PM'd a couple guys I haven't heard from in a few days, and will get PMs out to the new guys this evening. Hopefully everyone can check in by next Monday and we'll get going.
If there are questions, problems, you'll be out of town, you don't like SnakesGould, whatever, post them here or PM me.
Should be a great year!
