    We will have to randomize the team list for this year.

    Those in so far:
    1. Tide
    2. Tranplanner
    3. Giff
    4. Hink
    5. Plankton
    6. Duke
    7. Brocktoon
    8. Hilldweller
    9. The One
    10. Raf
    11. ddomin4360
    12. Mastiff
    13. Planderella
    14. Whose Ur Planner
    15. Big Easy King
    16. UrbaneSprawler
    17. Transit Slug

    Let's cut it off tomorrow. If we happen to get 4 more, then we will go with two 10 team leagues, or if we get no more, we go with two 8 team leagues...

    Not this year, we probably will go back to it next year.

    Ok here is my plan. Sometime this weekend Ill load the owners list into excel and use the random number generator to create the two leagues. I'll sort the list largest to smallest and post it here. I'll take whatever half I land in and Hink gets where he lands. The posted list will also be in random draft order.

    Ok with the plan? Now's the time to speak up...

    If we end up with an odd number, do we cut last in? Any other ideas? Bueller?

    I think cutting last in is the most fair way to go.

    Sorry Slug!

    Although I love my Pac NW slugs dearly, I think we need to cut the league off at 16 teams.

    The random division thing sounds fine to me.

    Oh, and I only need one team to crush y'all!

    I was serious when I said I wanted to sign up. Too late?

    Maybe not, are odd numbered leagues a problem?

    Don't jack up the divisions if the numbers don't work, but if there is an opportunity I'd like it. My other league may not be happening this year.

    giff57- I think you meant Saturday, Sept. 1 for the draft, not Sept. 4th (which is a tuesday).

    Unfortunately I will be moving on Sept. 1st so I'm out. It looks like there are others that want to get in though so hopefully someone will take my spot. Sorry guys.

    Transit Slug is the first "extra", so if you want to join (since Hilldweller cannot make the draft date), you can. If not, we will go down the list.

    I will set up my league this afternoon. Giff, are you north or south? Or do we want to do Legends and Leaders?

    I thought we were doing the draft the old way, not a one day draft?


    Edit: I see where that came from. That was the day of last year's auto draft, not a proposal for this year. We are doing the off line draft line in days of old.

    I guess I'll stick with Cyburbia South.

    Ignore that, those are old settings, we are going with an offline draft
