At this point it's hard to say what I'll be doing that night, though Sunday might be easier. Don't change anything on my account though, my schedule shifts on a daily basis.

Just remember...even if you CAN make it, make up your list of picks. If something happens, like it did for me last year, you won't be stuck with Yahoo's list (like I was).

Can't find the invite -- can you send another? Superstation wants in again.

Yeah, we're good. Superstation is trying out draft strategies. Not sure it's helping, since they're not IDP leagues. Is there a way to do an IDP mock draft? I'm not seeing it anywhere.

Man I haven't been paying attention to trade or injury news at ALL. I'm going to have to do a day of research before I draft.

I scaled back from 3 to 1 league this year. Dropped out of my pay league and the family league was disbanded because none of the women ever actually paid attention.

we had flex positions before, and they were not a good thing. I don't like them......but what does everyone else think?

Make a gentlemen's agreement that we won't have an RB in our flex over 60% of the time.

Superstation says he'd prefer not being an IDP league though he'll play either way, and doesn't really want a flex (though my dislike for the idea might have swayed him). Flex isn't necessarily bad, but when you already have 2 RB and 3 WR positions it just gets a bit cumbersome. And trying to keep track of the "gentlemen's agreement" seems the worst of all choices (IMO).

Well I'm not suggesting a flex IN ADDITION to those 5 spots, but IN PLACE of one of the wideout spots.

Just finished my first draft. Not a bad lineup.

It's a little weird every year to see the same faces that did awesome in the past but all of a sudden they aren't top 10 picks anymore and guys you've never heard of are.

Has anything been decided on possibly changing the format? It's kinda late now to be re-strategizing. Maybe mid-year decide on any changes for next year?

Lyr and I have been asking for a flex spot for over two years.

Honestly I don't see how adding a flex would dramatically change your strategy. You're still going to take either the running back or wideout ranked highest when your pick comes.

I'd still like to see a change and announcement tomorrow before the draft, but I understand with the foot dragging if it doesn't happen yet again this year.

And Stone....3 years ago we HAD a flex spot. It just had every single person play 3 RB's.


Not a fan.

I can live with it. I'd still prefer a flex, but it's not even close to being the end of the world.

It randomizes 10 minutes before the draft starts.

I think it should be in reverse order of the rankings last year...i.e. you win, you get last pick, you come in last, you get first pick.

As far as flex positions....if you are playing 2 WR and a flex makes sense, but with 2RB and 3 WR in play it just doesn't make sense to me.

What Lyr (correct me if I'm wrong) and I were wanting was

2 WR
2 RB
1 TE
1 flex (wr/rb/te)

and we are good with the gentleman's agreement that flex is not to be rb more than 50% of the time.

we are having an issue. Yahoo switched us to a auto-draft somehow. I clicked the "keep last year settings", and as of a week ago, we were a live draft, so I don't know how it got messed up.


I can't change it to earlier than 10 pm now, so I say we should reschedule. I say we make it NEXT weekend, so people can plan to be here.


Does that work for everyone? I am sorry for the problem, but it wasn't anything I did...

Also...we DO need one more team. One of my friends backed out now, and can't play. We need an even number of teams, so if anyone here wants in they get first chance.


THAT is my fault. He said he was in, but I didn't check to see he accepted and joined, and now he isn't answering his phone. Sorry about that.
