    OK, so when are we drafting?

    Any thoughts? We do need to get going soon.

    Can we try the 30th, 31st or 1st?

    31st and probably the 1st are tough before 8:30pm eastern. Sunday might be the best option, or I'll just set an auto-draft.

    We did it at least that late last year to accommodate the west coasters, it may have been at 9 Eastern

    My pay league drafted on the 13th of this month. Worst freaking thing ever and I won't join any league that does that shit ever again. Half my team is injured at this point so I basically wasted 50 dollars.

    I can be on whenever pretty much.

    The last pre-season games are on the 3rd. Personally I'm all for drafting as late as possible (like the 8th or 9th) because I would imagine several of us may have Labor Day weekend plans and won't be around to particpate.

    with 6 votes in Monday at 8 or 9 EDT is most popular> 9 that night works best for me.

    I will be around, but my Buckeye's are playing so I may have to yell at you all depending on how well the Hokies are playing.

    Sounds good to me. I'll be glad to be in a draft where I already know the hurt players. So stupid to draft prior to preseason.

    Sorry guys but I guess I'm out. I can't do Monday (Labor Day) for the draft and I really don't want to spend the season with players that were auto-drafted. I think there was some interest from others on the board so hopefully you can find a replacement.

    Oh that IS Labor Day, so Scouts is out but I don't know what else that day will bring. Probably nothing at night honestly. My annual league is Tuesday night so can't do that. How's Wednesday?

    Monday was the only day that everyone that participated in the poll could do (The Landsharks selections were lost when I edited the poll). Players can be pre-ranked, so it isn't a total autodraft.

    I may have to drive my sister back to the airport during the draft, but I ranked players in the event that I can't make it.

    The name has also been change to "Frost Bites"
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.
