    When do we want to start?

    Opening day is Sept. 8th.

    Our last draft took almost five weeks. Now, we have three less rounds, but they were the quick ones (9 days), so we probably want a month for picks... and at least a week for me to put up the teams. Then people need to set rosters and such.

    Last year we started July 21. Now, training camps start in late July, and pre-season starts Aug. 6th.

    Anyone think July 18th is too early? We can avoid that late round crunch...

    It sounds good to me. The Captains are ready for some sweet revenge.

    Sounds great to me.

    Can the ONE come out to play?

    Is there room for another to play? If so, how does this thing work.....Do I pick players from a list or do I just pick the name of the team?

    Someone would need to drop out....since the league was a full 16 teams last year.

    Is there a waiting list for jokers like TO and me who would potentially like to play if someone (or 2) drop? Or is this just a pipe dream?
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
