    I will be sending out PM's shortly with league info.

    Draft is tentatively set for Fri. Oct 24th @ 9:00 PM (Eastern). A draft time poll is here,

    Please vote.

    We have to move quickly to draft and fill the league.

    This league has been setup as daily, but if there are no complaints, I may change it to weekly lineups.

    If you have a question, ASK!

    You will need one to play in a Yahoo league.

    Will AOTG be a scoring stat category?

    Unfortunately, no. Yahoo and the NBA do not track it.

    If they included AOTG, along with sweet-looking shots that almost went in and pre-game shots, it would give some fantasy players an unfair advantage.

    Draft time is set for

    Sat Oct 25 7:00pm EDT

    Sorry to anyone this screws up. You now have one more day to pre-rank.

    The league is closed at 10 franchises. Somewhere, someone didn't sign up, and I don't have time to hunt down 2 more owners.

    That's gonna leave a pool of decent players to pick up throughout the season.
    :hoops:

    ...ughhh. I'm afraid that was me. :ohwell:
    I didn't realize that I was up against a deadline.

    I went onto Yahoo to sign up this morning and it locked me out. I saw this post AFTER doing that and it all makes sense now.
    I'd like to play if I'm not too late.
    If not, It's no big deal at all. It just means that I can continue to tease all of my friends who are "fantasy geeks".

    OK, cool!

    Don't knock yourself out of stress too hard about it. I'd love to play but I know you're a busy guy...
    I's my fault for not signing up right away. I promise that if you manage to get me in, I'll be more committed to my ball club than I was about the process of going on Yahoo and getting signed up.

    Thanks man!

    oh, crap, I do not remember what my yahoo account is :mmph:

    Even retrieving ID do not help: yahoo demands more specific info what I dared not to memorize.

    :stupid:

    Maybe the best is to create a new account and delete my current fantasy profile-team...:pray:, plz not :ban:

    I've been there myself Rex. Luckily I was able to recall enough details to have my info emailed to me. Hopefully you're able to do the same.

    it's 50/50 that i can make it for the draft...do i need to set something for auto-draft, or will it do it automatically. I would like to set it to pick right away so youguys don't have to wait 90 secs each round for the computer to kick in for me??

    Dt, if you log into your team, you can see the default autodraft rankings.

    You can move players up, down or out of the list as you like.

    Or you can leave it.

    If you are not in the draft, it will select for you very quickly. Autodrafting is fast. Human drafting is slow!
