I'm off on Monday and Tuesdays, and my third day off floats, but is usually on Friday. But whatever is best for the most people, I can work with.

SpartaChris

Off weekends and home by 4:00 pm Pacific Standard time during the week. Lemme know!

FTR All 12 Spots have now been filled in here after readjusting people to correct preference who signed up earlier and adding Cris. Have fun this year guys..Also I'm putting a parlay that Kaba wins the regular season but Polish takes the Playoffs overall.

I don't know what emotion I'm supposed to feel after reading this...but I'll settle for it being a compliment.

Also, I can draft anytime at all up until August 24th, which is when my school starts back up. I would prefer to get it done before then, but my schedule shouldn't be too bad after that date either, just a little more complicated.

A lucky Polish Guy? Ha. You know we put screen doors on our submarines, right? At least I can blame someone other than myself this time.

Friday night is looking like the best option right now. Anybody else want to weigh in? Anybody heard from our commish?

Not to be a buttinski, but I seem to recall Chilly stating that he would not be able to play commisioner for any leagues. I'm not 100% on that. But if memory serves...

vancemeek
08-19-2011, 07:33 PM
Ah, well that's no good.

I can only go with what I'm told by people and this is what he said earlier.


And I'm in favor of a 12 team snake, standard scoring. I would volunteer to be commish of that league.

If you guys haven't heard anything by Sunday, Let me know

Docta
08-20-2011, 03:01 AM
I'll e-mail Fess the thread so he knows what's up. He doesn't have time to check the site every day.

And I'm doing it on our fantasy baseball league, so I don't actually know what his e-mail is, so he's going to have to PM Chilly himself.

Chilly
08-20-2011, 02:38 PM
Woahhhhh.

Finally ReaderM put up the league! Hey everyone, I'm here--and I'm totally okay to be in charge. I was looking to get this started a few weeks ago, but ReaderM was doing an incredible, meticulous job of getting everything organized. But it looks as if we now have a league! And I will gladly take the reins.

Chilly
08-20-2011, 02:40 PM
(and my apologies for not being on FPL the last two days--freshmen just arrived on our campus and I had to give some speeches in front of large crowds--aka me locking myself in a room and rehearsing for hours on end. speeches are over; went well. fantasy time.)

Objections for this coming Friday night?

vancemeek
08-20-2011, 02:42 PM
Friday works perfectly for me.

Chilly
08-20-2011, 03:08 PM
I need e-mails private messaged to me (just written information, no Favre-style pics) from a lot of members still...

KabaModernFan
08-20-2011, 03:19 PM
I don'y have a problem with this Friday night either.

vancemeek
08-20-2011, 04:20 PM
Ok, I'm in.

Chilly
08-20-2011, 06:42 PM
Awesome, Vance.

What time is everyone thinking for Friday (if we do it that day)?

vancemeek
08-20-2011, 06:46 PM
Anytime after 7 should be good on Friday.

KabaModernFan
08-20-2011, 07:17 PM
Anytime is fine for me. How many e-mails do you still need Chilly? Just curious.

Andy Freeland
08-20-2011, 08:58 PM
I'll work with Chilly to get Cris signed up. I wouldn't count on him being around for a Friday draft, but I'll check with him.

Chilly
08-20-2011, 10:07 PM
1. Bengals1181
3. Cris Collinsworth
4. Dario
6. FessJL081
8. Pruitt
10. Ripperlious

The above-mentioned need to PM me their e-mail, and I'll then send an invite. Only three have officially joined the league, myself included.

Pruitt
08-21-2011, 12:07 AM
I'm afraid I'm going to have to bow out of the league.

Family issues are going to make it impossible for me to participate in a draft.

Sorry about that.

KabaModernFan
08-21-2011, 03:53 AM

Sorry about that.

I hope the family issues are nothing overly serious and everything works out for you and your family. I was looking forward to playing against you, maybe next year then.

SpartaChris
08-21-2011, 12:18 PM
Awesome, Vance.

If it's Friday, any time after 7 EST would work for me.

Pruitt
08-21-2011, 12:19 PM

Thanks for the good wishes, they are much appreciated.

Everything will be fine and we'll be back to normal by mid-October. The problem is that during the next two weekends (especially Labor Day weekend), it'll be impossible to devote a couple of hours to anything.

SpartaChris

Sorry to hear that. Hope it works out! We're here to help if you need to talk.

08-21-2011, 11:54 PM
Ditto on all the above; our hearts go out to you.

Pruitt
08-22-2011, 07:07 PM
Thanks guys. My wife is having surgery, and like I said, things will be okay... but if you've been through something like this, you know you've got to get prepared.

I'll be around though.

KabaModernFan

Of course, best wishes. We'd still be glad to have you in the league, though it would all depend on how you feel about an Autopick team.

Chilly
08-22-2011, 11:13 PM
Yeah, ditto on Kaba's suggestion. Autopick's in a Snake Draft aren't ideal, but they're much better than auction drafts.

Pruitt
08-22-2011, 11:21 PM
You know... autopicking will give me a weekly excuse for losing.

Odd I didn't think of that.

Chilly
08-23-2011, 04:28 PM
Sounds good--I still haven't heard from quite a few members. If I don't hear from everyone soon, we're going to need to push this draft back until next week.

vancemeek
08-23-2011, 05:16 PM
Looks like only half are in. I hope they get in soon. I'll have an autopick team too if we have to do it next Friday.

Pruitt
08-23-2011, 06:51 PM
Not to sound like an idiot, but I'd like to set up my autopicks. Where exactly is the league?

vancemeek
08-23-2011, 07:09 PM
send a pm to Chilly with your email address in it, and he'll email you an invite.

Andy Freeland
08-23-2011, 08:00 PM
Almost no chance Cris makes a Friday draft, but either I'll draft for him or his son/co-GM Jac. There's a small chance that he could participate if the draft is next week, but I'd hate to see you move it and then he's still available, which is probably what would happen.

It would sit fine with me to have either you or Jac draft for him. I've unofficially named myself junior deputy commissioner, it comes with no real power but it makes me seem important. It's up to Chilly, but I don't think we'll have to move the draft as long as everybody gets in.

Ragar
08-23-2011, 08:41 PM
Auto Pick drafts where you manipulate your lists can get some interesting results...kinda funny sometimes

Chilly
08-24-2011, 01:33 PM
Andy, what would be a good day for Cris next week? Since we still haven't filled the league, we're probably looking at moving it to next week anyways (day/time uncertain, because I can't do next Friday either).

Let's get some suggestions thrown out by the members of this league for next week:
-Midweek, evening?
-sometime during Labor Day weekend?

I am not optimistic about this Friday (though I understand Cris has limited availability and I have no problem with you/Jac drafting for him), simply because I don't think our league will be filled by that point judging by the current rate of progress. So let's start considering plan B.

Chilly

SpartaChris
08-24-2011, 07:34 PM
If it's labor day weekend, please make it Saturday or Monday. Sunday = no good.

And any time during the week after 7 pm EST is good for me personally.

Andy Freeland
08-24-2011, 09:25 PM
I don't know that any day is good for Cris. I'll send him and email and hope he responds. But just carry on as if he won't be available, if he is that's a bonus.

darvon
08-24-2011, 09:43 PM
If Cris can't make it, I hear Al Michaels is looking for a team, now that he has a backer for the fees.

vancemeek
08-24-2011, 09:49 PM
Monday is fine any week. I'm off Mondays.

Polishguy00
08-26-2011, 08:04 AM
Are we officially moving this yet? I still got the "your draft is tomorrow" email from NFL.com. I just need to know for tonight's plans. I can basically figure out any night after 7PM EST.

Pruitt
08-26-2011, 09:00 AM
My rankings are set. I'm autopicking, but just had to exclude CJ Spiller from my team.

Chilly
08-26-2011, 04:20 PM
I will move it right now...but still doesn't seem like we have consensus. I will put up some times this afternoon and we can lock down an actual day.

KabaModernFan
08-26-2011, 05:00 PM
I feel like we shouldn't worry too much about Draft time until we get replacements for the two remaining spots.

vancemeek
08-26-2011, 06:58 PM
Are there still 2 spots open?

KabaModernFan
08-26-2011, 06:59 PM
Are there still 2 spots open?

Last I checked there was. We need to find replacements for dario and someone else who I can't remember at the moment.

If no one else wants to join I will play in this one as well Kaba

mkocs6
08-26-2011, 07:04 PM
I'm involved in the other two leagues, but I'll go three for three if you need another player. I tend to accumulate fantasy football teams, so it's no trouble.

KabaModernFan
08-26-2011, 07:04 PM

That's more than okay with me, just hit up Chilly with your contact info and he'll send you the invite.

Chilly
08-27-2011, 02:11 PM

The Friday one is the only one I can for sure make. I work from 1-10 both Saturdays and Sundays.

I can make just about any of those times work for me.

Should be able to do those dates, just let me know when you do.

Pruitt
08-30-2011, 04:15 PM
I'm on auto pick, but have ensured that CJ Spiller will not be on my team.

Andy Freeland
08-30-2011, 05:39 PM
Cris said he's most likely to make Sunday afternoon, but no guarantee even then.

Chilly
08-30-2011, 09:50 PM
Okay, well I just learned that I have to make a public appearance Friday afternoon and deliver a speech at the exact time as the draft would be on that day, so I'm going to be that ******* Commish and say that we're going to speculatively set it for Sunday afternoon.

Vance: could you make it for at least the first half if it was at Sunday around 11am EST? Right now I can move it between 11am and 2pm Sunday EST.

Any preferences?

Ragar
08-30-2011, 09:54 PM
Having to go autopick, with it being Labor Day Weekend, have oto many parties etc. to attend (all kid driven). Brightside is, autopicks (even with my modifications) tend to give some weird results so let's see what happens!!!

vancemeek
08-30-2011, 09:56 PM
If you start it at 11AM, I could make the first hour or so..That would be preferred of the other dates.

SpartaChris
09-02-2011, 09:12 AM
Crap, Sunday... /sigh

I'll try and shuffle some things around. Is that day/time set in stone now?

Chilly
09-02-2011, 12:34 PM
My apologies Chris, but yes. And we apparently need another member in our league. I'll take care of that, though.

Colts01
09-03-2011, 10:34 AM
So are we on for Sunday? What time?

Chilly
09-03-2011, 02:24 PM
11AM EST (I'm living in the PST, so it'll be an early morning for me)

My apologies about not being able to do it Friday. I'm going to send out an e-mail right now reminding everyone.

Chilly
09-04-2011, 11:41 AM
Does no one want to play in this league? Draft had to be moved back another hour, because we haven't filled it yet. WE NEED ONE MORE MEMBER!

Colts01
09-04-2011, 11:52 AM
So its noon now?

vancemeek
09-04-2011, 11:53 AM
Ah, crap. I'll be able to make my first pick, but gotta go after that.

SpartaChris
09-04-2011, 11:55 AM
I just posted to my FB page and Twitter that we still need one more person. Will see if we get any hits.

Chilly
09-04-2011, 12:02 PM
I tried all yesterday, to no avail. I'm really sorry guys; it was full at one point then someone pulled out.

DaBearsFan
09-04-2011, 12:03 PM
Hey, I sent Chilly a message, but in case he doesn't see it: I can do it but if someone else wants to do it, they should have it. I'm already in 2 FPL Leagues and don't want to be that guy who's in so many, but I also don't want to see any leagues get delayed a lot.

Chilly
09-04-2011, 12:05 PM
I just sent it to you. We missed the 1 hour mark, so it got pushed back to 12:30AM EST

DaBearsFan
09-04-2011, 12:07 PM
Alright. I jumped in but if someone else sees this and wants in, let me know ASAP

vancemeek
09-04-2011, 12:09 PM
Crap. Well, then I will be autodraft.

Amy
09-04-2011, 12:12 PM
Chilly, I can take DaBears spot if he/you want. PM me the info,if needed, I'm free all day for drafting.

DaBearsFan
09-04-2011, 12:21 PM
Amy- I deleted my team and sent you a message. Chilly may get to you too.

Chilly
09-04-2011, 12:26 PM
Gotta hurry Amy, or it gets delayed another 30 min

DaBearsFan
09-04-2011, 12:28 PM
I'm keeping an eye on it. another minute and I'll jump back in. Then, I guess just send Amy an email to make her co-owner. She can take charge of the team that way

DaBearsFan
09-04-2011, 12:30 PM
Alright, I jumped back in so the draft at least will go on. If you make Amy a co-owner, she can take over that team completely. If you need help Chilly, let me know

Chilly
09-04-2011, 12:33 PM
K, we're set all. 9:30am!

SpartaChris
09-04-2011, 12:50 PM
Edit: Nevermind, looks like we all got this sorted out right about the same time. Thanks Amy!

Chilly
09-04-2011, 12:52 PM
We got it, Sparta. We're full. 12:30am. It's finally happening.

Can I sue the autopick computer?

Chilly
09-04-2011, 05:42 PM
Just looked at your team...not too bad. Strong RBs. Definitely not a flashy team, but should be effective.

Pruitt
09-04-2011, 05:45 PM

Yeah, but I figured my pre-rankings would have given me better WRs. And you've gotta love my two Kicker philosophy.

09-04-2011, 06:36 PM
I wish it hadn't autopicked both Austin collie and Dallas Clark.

KabaModernFan
09-04-2011, 07:12 PM
The alert on my phone that I had set up never went off, technology spites me yet again. Expect to see a lot of immediate movement from me as I try to right the wrongs of the Autopick.

I had thousands of problems with my home pc connection in late july/early August, and then i was on vacation since yesterday.
I hope you found someone else who replaced me...
Next year....

Chilly
09-05-2011, 01:44 PM
Despite the complaining, we all know that one of the autopick teams is going to win it all. Probably Cris's.
