    The upcoming Saturday-Sunday first half of the day would be preferable.

    I lined players - just in case - but after 25th I got bored....:typing:

    All what I hope that I do not have to clean a desk in the first week as happened in fantasy hockey. :smash:

    Ahight...

    I have a "novice league" question.
    I've pre-selected the draft order for my roster. Do I need to do anything else to auto-draft? Is there a button that I need to turn on or something or will it automatically select my pre-selected players.

    I'm gonna be out of town (camping/mountain biking) the next two weekends and won't be able to make the live draft.

    If you're going to play, we need one more player fast. I'm concerned by how little you post. You're not a very active PFer. For example, you're late to this league.

    I need to know you are committed before I run out to find another player.

    Need more info. This weekend as opposed to next? What times exactly? We're talking about 12:15 PM EST (9:15 AM your time, weekend next). Is this an issue?

    If you're not in the draft, the computer drafts from your list. So just make sure your list is good to go.

    If you leave during the draft, the computer takes over. If you join during the draft, you take over.

    Remember to draft bigs and PGs early. They are harder to find than forwards and shooting guards.

    Dont listen to Roscoe, it's a nasty nasty ploy. SG's are a dime a dozen.

    For greenhorns here:

    AOTG is Assist Of the Glass

    In fantasy basketball it is very valuable category - get one and matchup is yours.

    Ok I've read through these posts about the draft time and all I have to say Roscoe is that I can meet any day any time that you decide. Sorry I didn't communicate sooner. I went out of town to see Bob Dylan with my mom. Wow, was that ever cool!

    I have no limitations at all on my schedule because sad or happy to say there is nothing in this great big world that is more important to me than my Pistonsforum.com Fantasy Basketball Novice draft. So if it ends up the 25th cool, or any of those other days or times cool. Just pick the time and tell me. The only time I can't go is on the 31st because I'm going to see the Michael Jackson movie and that actually is more important to me. LOL. So just lemme know and I will be there with all my picks ready to roll. Cool? Cool!!!!

    I'm so psyched. I keep rearranged my guys and agonizing over what order I should try to take them in, of course knowing full well that it never ever turns out in the ideal way that I hope that it will. But then again that's what free agency is for, right? I certainly hope we are going to unlimited drop and adds in this league.:)

    Who is "State and Main" ?


    Last year I dropped and added like one very desperate first time fantasy player in noob league and if it pissed commmish R36 off, he atleast did not express it via internet:).

    I only joined the forum at the end of last season, yes I've been quiet over the summer but I'm definitely going to be a committed player, would love for you to give me a chance Roscoe! :)

    If you look through my posts you'll see I was looking to play last season!

    You can't register until I find someone to play with you. We can't have a league with an uneven number of teams.

    Sounds good Tads. PM headed to you and Rocastle.

    Please announce your team name in this thread once you have registered.

    Right now, we're looking at Sunday Oct 25th, 12:15 PM (GMT-5) EST as the live draft. Not everyone will be able to make it (I have never been in a league with 10 teams where everyone made it) but if you can or can't make it then, I would like to know. So please also post that to this thread.

    Cheers.

    that is me. last year I was the "chitownwranglers". I didn't like that name then, and I don't like it now. State and Main is one of my favorite movies.

    I'm really bad at naming things...
