    you have gotten pre-drafted though? Yeah live draft is better, but it was hard for the people who organized this to get everyone on the same page let alone gatting everyone to be able to draft on the same day. Good luck on your picks (hope mines better though).

    yeah, I understand that but I am a very good live drafter, but don't know about this kind. However, just make it more challenging during season.

    I barely know crapp about making intelligent picks so great for me. I'm very new at this I only have been in a fantasy league once before this, and that was only a month ago because I wanted to learn the rules.

    i never knew pre-drafting would be so hard. how are you supposed to differentiate between players 100-156??

    its like, do you prefer eating dirt or woodchips?

    The problem with live drafting was exclusion of some. It's difficult to find a schedule that works for 12 people and time was running out.

    Autodraft was announced several days ago along with the league settings anyone can view at yahoo. Not to mention the TWO emails I have sent from yahoo with league news updates.

    @himat. It would be beneficial if you read my earlier post in this thread for the draft time info. Read first, then ask please.

    wow somebody had a tough day? I read e-mails just thought the predraft was the list of players you want to make draft go fast. Didn't know there was another kind. However, I do understand it is hard to get 12 people with a family and job in the same place.

    Not really. Well, not any tougher than the usual I suppose. ;)

    Organizing people for a league has been a little harrowing with my other workload. There is one person in the league that I don't even know who they are!

    I know it's not easy, but email communication and/or checking this board are key to participating. All I can do is make announcements (PM reminders to re-up for the league, notification of info updates to this thread etc). Whether people read them is out of my hands...

    I can't wait till 9:00

    Is it possible to have a novice league trash talk thread? I know after my amazing success and good fortune in this draft, I will be ready for some serious smack talk. Too bad none of you guys are me!:eyebrows:

    Hey, who'd you guys "exclude"?

    I excluded Shaq, Kobe, Vince Carter, Artest, and Kidd.

    I can't stand any of those punks.

    Hahah, you're just like me Super. I excluded some guys in the Expert league that I just can't stand. Great players, but guys I could never actually chear for.

    I excluded Carter, Shaq and Artest as well. I'm not a huge fan of Kidd's but I don't dislike him enough to exclude him.

    I was going to exclude Stephan Jackson as well, but I ended up drafting him in one of the later rounds. As much as I hate the guy, he killed me head to head last year. He was the best combo G/F left and I wanted the versatility.

    The draft is done. I think it just finished because my team wasn't listed a few minutes ago.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I knew I didn't do that right. I got Lebron, Ray Allen and Carter but the rest looks like a NBADL team.

    Press Release

    Despite a heroic effort to draft the Serbian Swat Machine, The Darkonaughts came up shorter than the Miami Heat in last years title run. Slippy's Darkonaughts have since changed their name to the Darko-Nots. Said GM Slip: "Its hard to be the Darkonaughts without Darko." When asked where he would put the Pistons X factor on a roster already laden with questionable centers, Slippy said frankly: "He could play the three. IT COULD HAPPEN! Now I have to pray to God that Shaun Livingston can play at least half a season."

    hmm. interesting. thats the only problem with an auto draft, if you start getting skinny in a certain position you can't bump up some guys in the draft order from that position. looks like i'll be putting some trades out there once i analyse my team fully.

    is there any way to see what the draft order was by pick?
    this is gonna be cool. lets get this thang started!

    -----------------------
    sweet. found the draft order. i got number 1. way to win the lottery!

    I'm loaded at point guard. I have Wade, Arenas, Bibby, A.Miller, Hinrich and Payton. They won't do me any good on the bench.

    I want to improve at Center and also need a small forward (I don't have any).

    You can reply here, PM me, or propose a trade through the yahoo site if you are interested in wheeling and dealing for the above or anything else you think I may be interested in. :eyebrows:

    Well, now is the time to drop guys or trade to adjust your roster.
