      This is a continuation of the 2010 league we played on CBSsports. Made a couple small changes in the league config: cut down a division, added a couple playoff spots and made the rosters a little more flexible. I think it'll make things a little easier for everybody, as befit a free, just for fun and smack talk league.

      Sent PMs to everyone that I think was in the league last year. Those who did not receive invites but are interested, please post up. I told the old guys they have until Thursday to sign up. I'll invite new guys on a first-come, first-served basis starting Friday.

      Edit to add, when you sign up, please post your team name for tracking purposes.

      1 day in, and the league is half full. Very encouraging. Heard from one who decided not to return, so invited the first new player. Want in? Post up. I have a feeling more spots will become available soon.

      Ok, we've got 9 in. If the league doesn't fill up today, I'll start sending out PMs to people tomorrow.

      Then everyone can start bitching about how inconvenient the draft time is and can't we change it cause I have to ref a soccer practice or save kittens or whatever. I love when that happens.

      Thurs 9/1 at 8:30 ET?
      That fine with me, unless I have to do something unforeseen at work.
      That's the danger of a weekday draft, I guess.

      My work schedule changes from week to week and I don't know what it's going to be until around 3 days before it begins so I'll just say that Sunday is the best day for me since they usually give me Sunday off but I will request a day off if I have enough notice.

      Thursdays starting 09/01 are bad for me... but if I need to set an autodraft I can do that.

      Rex's Foot F*ckers is my team, BTW.

      I didn't meant to be quite so strident about it. We can move the draft to accommodate people.

      Do you prefer weekday or weekend?
      If weekend, morning, afternoon or evening?

      Yahoo only makes certain times available - so if most people want a weekend, we might have to move to before the 4th preseason game instead of the weekend before the season starts (Aug 28 instead of Sep 4).

      Because I could, I just moved it to Sept 4 at 4pm EDT. Hoping that works better for everyone. Again, if it doesn't, post up, and we'll try to figure out something that pisses the fewest people off.

      Sunday September 4 should be fine for me. Generally I don't work on Sunday but if I'm not able to make it I can setup the auto draft with my own rankings.

      Found the 3 guys in the 2010 thread who said they wanted to join. Invites sent. That would give us 12.

      If there is an open spot... Id send a note to Ed (Firebreathingbunny)... he used to the run the league and he posted in the pick em today. havent seen him for a while.

      Beng = Odeon Sex Panthers

      ...any chance we can move the draft back to the original time? Im traveling Sunday, its labor day weekend. Maybe some day that week before. I'd like to break my streak of auto drafting

      Let's get everyone signed up and then we'll poll on the best draft time. Might be worth moving it back to the prior weekend.

      I included him in my initial DMs that went out about the league. Never got a reply.

      Sure? Makes no difference to me how you manage your team as long as you set a lineup each week, account for bye weeks and don't send super crappy trade offers (your Patriots tight end for my Aaron Rodgers, etc).

      Nice!

      Did we come up with a final draft date/time? I missed it last year and ended up with a **** team.

      I didn't realize 9/4 would be labor day weekend...that's probably not a good idea. Beng said he's going away, and I'm almost certain I'll be going away. I'd rather chance a weeknight.

      Would you prefer a weeknight or the weekend before? That's what I'm trying to nail down.

      Honestly, Id do as late as 9:30 if it helps West/Central coast players. 10 may be a little late... if it goes 2-2.5 hours.
      One of the night's during the week of 8/29 through 9/2? I have my cash league draft on Monday Aug 29th... but Im free Tues through Friday.

      I will be taking Eli Manning with the 1st pick if I get it

      Screw it, I'm not gonna make a fuss. I'll only request that we avoid Labor Day Weekend friday 9/2 - monday 9/5.
      I could probably do 9/2 in a pinch, but 9/3 - 9/5 is guaranteed autopick for me.

      I'm relatively certain that the schedule is posted until August 25 so I'll post up tomorrow night with the dates I'm free.

      Ok, looks like we're building towards a consensus that a weeknight is best. I'll let a few other people chime in and then check yahoo for available times.

      For the draft, how about Wednesday August 31 at 10pm EDT? Or would everyone prefer 9? I'm gonna change it on Monday based on how everyone responds.

      That date works great great for me.
      10pm is fine, but I wouldn't care if it moves to 9.

      The time doesn't matter for me. I'll have to look tomorrow and see if the schedule is posted for that date already.
