      I'm fine with FAAB...it'll be something new to me.
      But we have 14 people, and the last thing I want is for people to be surprised by unfamiliar rules and punk out and go zombie one month into the season.

      PS: I now have to restart my NBA 2k12 Association, as the Knicks got Chandler and dropped Billups.

      I wonder how many more deals are going down over the next two weeks.

      here was the email:
      okay guys... couple things i want to get settled...

      conferences, obviously yahoo randomly placed you into a conference once you signed up. I can leave as is or as i've been trying to, put you guys into conferences based on your favorite teams/location.

      1. A.Yes leave conferences as is or B. No, change based on team/location


      now that i've got 14teams locked and loaded i can set a date that I will click a couple of buttons and we can have yahoo generate a random draft order for us so we know what our draft positions are so you all can start mock drafting. OR, leave as is and you find out what your position is on draft night.

      2. A. Leave as is and find out draft order the night of the draft or B. set random order on a set dat before the draft

      FAAB waivers.. this is a vortex league and a lot of things get posted in the thread for this league on the site. the latest and greatest is the option for FAAB waivers. the details are in the thread. read em, come back here and vote.

      3 A. Leave waivers as normal or B. use the new FAAB system

      Last but not least, it seems like everyone can make the draft except for dorifto who wont know until the week before.. am i right? I don't want any autodrafters and with a 14 team league, the draft is going to be important.

      so reply back with your vote (for example 1A, 2B, 3A) and draft availability status.

      thanks

      i got 6 replies so far...

      majority:

      1. dont care about conferences, so i'll most likely leave as is...

      2. want to know draft order, so i'll most likely set that up soon...

      3. would like to try the FAAB system for waivers

      anyone else would like to vote, speak now or forever hold your peace.

      thanks
      i replied to your email, but i'll post my answers here too.

      1A - I'm already in the correct conference according to the team I follow (lakers)

      2B - knowing the draft position ahead of time would be nice to allow for preparation

      3 - I'm good either way since.

      Forgot to add that I am available for a 12/19 draft.

      *Dont* care about the way conferences end up

      *Am* available for draft

      *Okay* with getting draft order prior to draft

      *Fine* with FAAB system... though, as a newb... I hope I won't get made fun off too much for the bids, that I do or do not make.

      Lottery time!!!!!!!!!!

      i think i'm going to generate the random draft order today when I return from my lunch at 2pm
      Eastern time....

      a yahoo generated message will appear on the league board that a random order was generated.

      to see the order click on draft central and then draft results around 2pm ...
