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.

I tried to select but I'm not certain it worked. I'm good for Monday-Friday 8 and 9 pm. Could be available at 7 but would prefer later...

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.

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.

Can we just order the draft according to standings from last year? Sub in any new teams for whomever they are taking over for if that is the case? Hardly seems fair for me to get the first overall considering I won last year.

Generally, unless you are doing keepers, you go with a random order. That said, I dont really care how we do it.

Well, if you guys don't care, I will pick my entire team, and you can have the remaining players.





In all seriousness, I think going with random order is the best way.

The draft is Monday September 7, at 9PM EDT. That is 8PM Central, 7PM Mountain, and 6PM Pacific. The yahoo site opens up 15 minutes early so you can get ready.

I was at the airport during the draft. It looks like I will have my work cut out for me this season.

Tight End is my only weak position, but it's a really weak position in the NFL anyways. There are really only 4 TE's of value in the league right now.
