For me, the largest size league means I become familiar with lesser known players.  Which is helpful.

We had 18 last year.

 

It's fun and different to have a league so large.

 

My 2nd time with an 18+ league size.

We going to move the draft back? Its scheduled for monday night, seems a little soon considering the league doesnt seem finalized yet.

 

If you are odd, I'll join.

Rhy1244, can you please join?

 

There's nothing more that I can do.  After 5 Yahoo fantasy invites, and 2 ClipperTalk PMs, I can't do anything else to get the remaining 2 (outside of Rhy1244) from last year to join.

 

If you can join, I'll lock the league so we're set at 16.

 

Thanks for doing this, I know your heart isn't 100% in it.

 

I just sent you a Yahoo Fantasy invite.

I've also tried MassClip, who's been with us a few times since 2006-2007, but not always.  Sometimes he doesn't have internet, or something.

 

He didn't respond either.

Teams are now locked, so we're set with 16.

 

I like the Mario-level emoji that's in Rhy1244's team name.  That made my day.

We still doing the draft tonight?  To me it still seems like it might be best to delay it at least few days.

Yes.

 

We have an even number.

 

Are there any other concerns?

It should be a table flipping thing.

You've used this before, and I didn't remember it.  I think I asked you the same thing too, and you explained it to me back then too, that it meant table flipping.  

 

I can't find the reference the the old comments, it might have been on the Yahoo fantasy posts, and not ClipperTalk.

 

Thanks.

Well, I locked the teams so you wouldn't be able to leave anyways.

 

But ok, I'll see what I can move it to.

 

It doesn't seem that early to me, only 1 week before the season starts.

I posted the new draft time in  .

 

I know you're serious, but the draft time was mentioned when the league was formed 12 days ago, and the only hesitance from anyone just seemed to be if we had an even number.  There weren't many people who said they couldn't make the time, just concern whether we had an even number.

 

Which we got yesterday.

 

We've usually had our drafts about 7-10 days before the season, sometimes 3-4 days before.  So this time frame isn't unusual compared to the past.

 

And it's not like the start of the NBA season is a mystery, there's several weeks in advance time to prepare rankings.

 

I also fell asleep on my ride home, and woke up having had a nightmare.  I can't remember what the dream was about, but I think my conscious was telling me that I did a bad thing catering to someone at the last minute.

...It is a little rude to move it without even a few hours notice.  

Not all members of the league are posters here.  They are all probably scratching their heads...

 

But this stuff happens....

No worries to me, because I post here, and am fine autodrafting if need be, but at least make a post on the league message board so it is more likely to be disseminated to all the people in the league.

I'm sorry.  I handled this badly, and didn't know what the right thing to do was.  You and Mistwell are right, I inconvenienced the people who had to make arrangements to be able to draft tonight.

 

You're right, I should have posted on the league board.

 

I'll do that now, even if it's late.

 

That sick feeling I had after I did this was accurate.

I was just stating it for future reference. I did the same thing one year and made the league angry, so that was what I learned from when I did it.

Anyone want to play in another league too?  We have 6 teams right now, looking to make it 10 or 12 teams.  It is on yahoo too with standard categories.

I was was running late and going to have my wife choose the first couple of picks for me as I was driving home. We were on the phone and she wasn't particularly happy about it but was thrilled when she read that it had been postponed.

also glad for the time switch as I was twenty minutes from my house when the fifteen min calendar reminder came on. And I hadn't even studied anyone yet. New time is good, Nurm, thanks. 

F the warriors also.

Good draft y'all.  I never did prep for it really, so it was fun to kinda wing-it during the draft itself.  Probably nets me a much worse team than doing the research, but it was fun scrambling to figure out things like "is this dude who plays on the east coast still good or did he start to suck a couple years ago and I just never noticed?"

Who were the players that you were wondered those things about?

Yeah, fun draft and pretty satisfied with my team. Normally draft with a lot of "gut feeling", which probably most people do. Went KD over Harden, as Durantula has some making up for lost time to do and never cared for James Harden anyhow. Tend to pick younger players as the old ones just normally decline and don't offer much upside. Have three rookies, well four if you count Julius Randle, who may or may not get thrown to the waiver wire shortly. 

Good luck all.

Would making it 1 hour later make it easier for you to join a live draft?

 

Or if not, would you be ok with an auto draft?  For people who can't make it, it will autodraft.

 

I'd love to have you join too. 

 

If you're ok with either a possible autodraft, or a 6am your time draft, I'll send you an invite.  PM me our email address, or maybe you can join just by entering the league ID.

To others:  We're 15 managers currently.

 

I sent an invite to Shaliq, and maybe Griffin5 will join too.  We need an even number, so we will need 1 more if both of them join.

 

I'll then lock the league so no one else can join or drop.

Ok, see if you can join through the URL, or by going to Yahoo and then entering the league ID.  If that doesn't work, then PM me your email address and I'll send you an invite.

 

Let me know after you've joined.

 

you should already have a PM from me. through the URL I can't join.

 

Got it.  Sent you an email invite.

 

Let me know after you join.
