    I would have definitely have taken him at #12 if he fell that far.

    Someone kept him in Keeper even after he didn't play at all last season...

    There was an IR spot. Even a Cannuckian would know better than dropping a stud like that in a Keeper league...:chopper:

    Rondo was always on the fringe to be a keeper even when healthy. He is much more valuable in real life.

    I'm still surprised that Love fell that far!

    I think we were all scared off by his continual stop-start absences last season... I'm sure it won't be the same this year but it certainly affected my thinking ...

    I had Love last year and he tanked my team. His numbers dropped in every stat and he kept missing games with injuries.

    I was freaking out like a 5 year old over the prospect of acquiring him with my 2nd pick but someone called Bill Laimbeer finally could not resist taking him any longer

    every morning I wake up and have to realize that a whole night of news passed while I was sleeping. I am seriously disadvantaged as I sleep while all the NBA news are happening. When I am awake, players, GMs and coaches sleep, with no new ankle injuries, no injury progress, no trades, no new "I will mix my lineup and hand 45 minutes to Austin day"-annoucements. And no, I am not whining, I am just looking for an excuse if I don't manage to reclaim my advanced league trophy OR a further argument to back my claim to be the best fantasy league player everrrrr. That being said, I wanted that Italian guy, Motown Prides!

    Time to get a night job mate! I lived in London for 1.5 years so I understand your pain. Being in Australia is pretty sweet. The games are on during the day here.

    Italian guy? Datome is still available! :thumb[1]:

    I am commissioner in a league with my friends in Australia, and I have tweaked some of my rules to help offset this issue. The games are on during our day here so a lot of guys who are at work can't check the scores til they get home. Which leads to the problem you face. I found a nice method with Yahoo that I'm trialling this year. Basically, all FA's are on Waivers at all times. If you want a player you need to submit a bid ($ amount) for any player you wish to pick up.

    Waivers are processed once a day, and whoever bids the highest gets that player. You don't know who else has bid nor how much they bid. Every team has a budget of say $100 to use on waiver claims for the season. This means that there is no more time zone disadvantage and you need to think wisely how much you really want a guy and how much you are willing to spend from your season budget. You can still bid $0 and if nobody else bids you get him for free like a normal FA.

    I'll check back here with how its going later, but I think it could be a really nice rule to consider for this league in the future.

    That's different.... I'll have to digest that one. :)
