That's prefect. I am stoked. I've never been in a league where everyone really pays attention. Usually by March it's me and one other person fighting for first place.

That's what I was thinking. I feel bad for whoever gets first or last pick though (jinx). You're looking at roughly a 20 minute wait between your 2 picks.

We'll see how that goes, I'm willing to bet a few people lose interest. But I have the option to dump people and replace them with other owners, so I've got ways to handle it.

Sorry dude, Sunday seems to be the day, especially with everyone responding that that works for them. Gotta go with a day that people generally don't work on, and at night.

If you can't make it, go in and set up the draft rankings the way you want it beforehand so you'll be more inclined to get the players you want, if you miss the draft.

Eh in a keeper league being last can be a real advantage.

Sunday is great for me to draft. I am working, so the earlier the better. 7 p.m. is great, so is 5. Any later than 7 will be a problem for me. Also, I'm good with either 30 or 60 seconds. You don't have to take all 60 seconds to pick, though I know team owners in other leagues who do.

In this case you get two Top 25 players. There's no guarantee that say, over the course of the year, the 1st and 40th players total points will be as good as the 20th and 21st. I would lean more to the 20th and 21st.

Also, McNasty, when I meant it sucked, I meant in the sense of timely picking. I know ADD would kick in if that's me.

Sunday only works for me if it's around 9pm or later. Other wise it has to be during the week...

My soccer team is fighting for the playoffs so I can't really miss a game. I think this weeks game is 3pm. so this sunday could work. But I'm not entirely sure

Sorry to say, but it looks like most people are pushing for 7PM. I can maybe say 8PM but I have work the next day, as do many others. I suggest the same thing...rank your players as necessary, and maybe you can come back and catch the 2nd half.

That should be fine. I think it's an afternon game, but the latest game the league would schedule is 7pm. If I can't make it I'll just pre-rank

League is officially full. 20 teams in. 4 divisions of 5 each, listed in the first post.

Tentative date for draft is Sept 19 @ 7PM, I'll schedule it when I get home.

Sunday's are usually my closing night at work. There's no way I can get out of it either. I work 6-10...

FYI, any recommendations to rule changes, speak now or forever hold your peace. Best to do it now while we're waiting for the draft.

An idea I had was at the end of the season, the bottom 8 teams have the right to request a "transfer" to another division. Their new division would be done on a case by case basis based on number of total requests. Good idea, bad idea?

I like this. But you can't bounce out of a division the division champs. They've got to be able to defend their titles.

I really like that idea. Keeps the league fresh.

As long as the commissioner gets to decide who goes where (so that no division gets too weak or too stacked) then I don't see a problem with it.

Well it's only for the 8 teams that don't make the playoffs. If you make the playoffs, tough. But if you make the playoffs you probably won't want to change the division anyway. That way, say that you're last in your division but the other 4 teams make the playoffs (tough division), it gives you the chance to bail and try somewhere else. But in that situation, if say 2 people want out, the other team may move into a tougher division. Lots of strategy involved. Essentially we can swap things around accordingly as long as 2 of the 8 teams want to transfer.

I don't think I'll point someone specifically somewhere, because since we only keep 5 of our 19 players, we can suck one year and dominate the next, so I'll likely keep it random.
