Hey dudes

Just thought I'd open up a new thread for the upcoming season. Hope that's ok?

Haffey, are we having our draft positions early again? I want to get my Mock Draft on!

Also, do we have a draft time? I'm guessing it's not staying as noon UK time because that's kinda early for you guys across the pond.

Anyway, speak soon. Looking forward to the season!!


Yes, once I have an idea that everyone is back or we have a full league, I'll set the draft positions. Everyone looks like they automatically re-joined with how Yahoo has things setup now. I haven't heard anyone NOT coming back as of yet.

I had previously set the draft time when renewing the league to be Sat Aug 26 3:00pm EDT US. This is the same weekend (~day) as years previously. I likely won't be able to make it due to a prior commitment, so I'll be auto-drafting.

Looks like everyone is in the League as all 12 teams have been set up. Can we set up the league/draft order now? Would like to know my draft position for mock drafts etc.

Can't wait for the season to start!
kevindemente
I can confirm that myself, Fergs, Dags and Osian are playing.

I'll try to get them to post a message

You may be surprised to hear that my voice is the complete opposite... it is more along the lines of Joe Pesci.

It is very annoying... apparently rolleyes.gif

Alright everyone, I've finalized the team list, even though I still haven't heard from everyone about re-joining. I went ahead and set the draft order so everyone can start mocking and reshuffled the schedule to mix things up.

The draft order was randomized by Yahoo via their commissioner tools as was the schedule. Time stamps are shown on the league homepage on the desktop site (not sure about mobile) under "Commish Updates" so you can see when this took place (and any other changes that may occur). Remember the draft is LIVE on Sat Aug 26 3:00pm Eastern US. Here is the draft order:

1. Ram Raiders

2. Pipli Boys

3. Meurig Manatees

4. RelegationDelegation

5. Ft. Mudge Possums

6. Rozinante Ravens

7. Patriots Legends

8. The O.M.B.

9. Fantastic Tackleball

10. Dagg's Disasters

11. Grangetown Gophers

12. Still Quinning

Was hoping for a top 5 pick this year, 10th will be interesting though. See if Julio falls!

Well, I think Johnson is a little safer than the pot-smoker, but I am tempted to take Antonio Brown because the receivers that come back to me in the 2nd round are complete an utter garbage.

I think even if Shanny had stayed there was no replicating the monster offensive numbers from last season. That said I think there's too much talent in this offense for it not to continue to produce regardless of the OC, and with the improved defense I think our team overall will be better in 2017 than 2016.

Because when you share your life with someone you get to also share your misery with them.

Ergo, your misery is halved. It's science.

I'm learning to like 10, means I'll get a WR 1 and RB 1 or two solid options, will see how it falls on the night. Hoping Shady falls, but I think Zeke being an idiot ruins that for me

I just want a year where I get a decent draft slot. The last 4 years I've had 7,11,12,12. Really don't like drafting from 7 but hopefully will make it work. At least this year I won't be able to decide that choosing Gronkowski over LeVeon Bell was a good idea.
