First of I want to give a big thanks to Stefan. For something that is meant to be fun I think he was given a lot of heartache on Saturday which was not fair or even due. If people had done as asked and sorted their prepicks the draft would have worked perfectly. I managed it and I was in hospital. So to Stefan - Thank you.

 

I see Mike Kelly all his players from his team, so I am picking some up however if we get a new owner please feel free to reinstate them from my team.

As such yes. because some people had not moved keepers to the bottom of their autopick strategy then it kept selecting the top player with their autopick. MJD got picked a bazillion times by people not there. Shame as if we had done it right it would have been dead simple. As it was the old MSN method was simpler. The ESPN software though is really neat and I enjoyed the evening, of course there were three of us at my house all taking part on 3 different PCs and cursing each other as we stole players from each other (Cough Little Brother cough :rolleyes: )

 

I do enjoy the little league it really adds to my Sunday nights and I hope we get back into the spirit of it being fun.

I tried to do that with my keepers but I was pressed for time and couldn't really figure it out. Especially since up until the night before I was stalling hoping that things would change and I would be able to participate. As it is I probably managed the oddest pair of draft picks managing to get Cutler and Ortin who were already intertwined with a trade to begin with. So if anyone is interested in Cutler let me know, it will cost you a top tier QB though, the man can score points.

Thanks Stu, I appreciate it.

 

Actually, I have added all of the dropped players back to the teams formerly the Cardinals and Oompaloompas. We'll try to find people to take over these teams before we decide what our other options are. For the time being, I have temporary ownership of the three open teams.

I enjoyed playing in the league the last few seasons. Stefan poached a player off my roster to make his open team better. I drafted Brandon Marshall in the fifth round of the draft. Stefan dropped marshall off my roster after the draft and added mushin muhammad without an explanation. Brandon Marshall was fair game on draft day but he came up with a few bs reasons that made no sense at all. All I can say is watch your rosters closely, stefan is shady. I appreciate all he has done for running a fun league but this was wrong. Good Luck to all this season, I am joining an espn league a poker buddy of mine setup. The league is not fun when people resort to cheating.

 

All The Best,

 

Mike

Stuart, you keep menitoning we had to do something with our keepers, but aside from marking them as keepers on my league I can't find any reference to anything.

 

I appreciate things have gone a little pear shaped due to the fudge to get around the snake draft, but would that have been so bad? Aside from Stuart tanking the playoffs, the rest of us got a fair placing at the end of the season I thought.

 

What's done is done. I'm gonna log in later and check my players. Last I saw, I was still missing players even on Sunday evening. I'll audit my list and see what I have and if I'm missing any or have some I shouldn't have.

 

Oh and this year's draft was the best yet, and hopefully it'll be perfectly fine next year :o)

For autopick, move all of the keepers to the very BOTTOM of your selection list with yours at the top of the keepers. I'll make sure that those players are on your list after the draft.

I'll be taking off the keeper option now that everyone has selected their keepers and getting an official list of keepers out to everyone. To avoid confusion during the draft you may want to move all of the keeper players to the bottom of your autoselect list regardless as that should keep those players from being selected by mistake.

 

During the draft, we'll pick until we have filled our rosters minus the keepers then you will select your keepers with your remaining pick. If at any point during the draft you are satisfied with your team and want to let the computer fill your roster, pick your keepers and exit the draft.

 

Frank right here Stefan asked us to do the above.

League Keepers

 

Autumn

1.Darren McFadden

2.Ronnie Brown

3.Aaron Rodgers

4.Derrick Mason

5.Brandon Marshall

Look Brandon Marshall listed as a keeper.

 

That would be great. I have signed up as the second owner on the team for now and I can run the draft If Rupert's friend wants to join in he/she is more than welcome.

The above refering to Ranz's team.

We kept the keepers for Ranz's team so we could have an intact team in case some one else signed up. I see no shady dealings or cheating.

I will admit I was a bit POed toward the end, as I didn't know what was going on. Draft keepers or leave to the end, hell I didn't know. In the end everything got fixed for me at least I appreciate that. While I don't recall slotting out keepers for the draft, I do remember you telling me & everyone else in your other league as I thought it would be auto-draft like last year & I knew I was going to be at this league's draft day (last day of vacation, what else did I have to do).

 

Anyways, Sunday's draft for your other league went by pretty damn smooth if you ask me. Other then snufa at the end where you rolled it back like 10 players or so :lol: but that was mainly cause I was tired (hour of sleep before going back to work that morning was catching up to me).

 

Hopefully everything gets cleared up & everyone has a enjoyable season.

I didn't get the post about the keepers being moved to the end of the draft until after it was over since I had done an overnight Thursday, slept for 4 hours and hit a 16 hour stretch from 3pm Friday to 7am Saturday and then slept until I had to go do family stuff that evening.

 

As one of the players that had his keepers at the beginning, sorry if I caused some of the FUBAR.

 

In retrospect, I think keeping the keepers at the beginning does help even it out a little, particularly if we have new players joining the league. It would maintain things more evenly for who gets the better players. It also adds another wrinkle to keepers and how you end the season in the standing.

the 3 now defunct teams are

 

Evil Oompahloompas

Autumn Wind

& I think Arizona Cardinals

 

I have a friend who has never played but he says he'll take a team. I posted on the team board & Steffan said it was ok. Just waiting on how I go about getting him in. Sounds like 2 of the 3 teams have owners now.
