also to go along with my other suggestion that seemed to go dully un-noted, is it possible to have a live online draft too? it's the same for the people that pre-ranked if they can't make it because yahoo will use their pre-ranked list, but it's also more fun and easier to do a live draft too.

just a thought

I am against the live draft...just do it auto...it will be to difficult for people who are not there, and, I feel, give a slight advantage. If you pre-select well enough, all will be fine! I really think it would create more problems than not. Let's try to keep it friendly as possible!

If you really want someone....propose a trade.

the playoffs in week 17 will only effect 2 teams... whoever's left. it also keeps more teams playing for longer. but... i can change it to week 16 if that's what most would like.

as for the live draft... if a majority would be available, i have no problem with it, 'cause those who aren't there would just be auto-selected based on their pre-rankings. so let me know... if it seems most want the live draft, i'll do it... if most are against, we'll just stick with it as is.

well the other thing we have to take into consideration with live draft is time zones...I think auto draft is best given the nature of the league

time zones, personal schedules, computer access, etc. etc. etc....

I think the auto draft keeps everyone on a similar playing field.

No matter how well you set your pre-draft, folks involved in the live draft will be able to read better and take advantage of what is available - not fair to those who can't be there.

Like I said, the scheduling (people feeling left out) of the live draft could get REALLY ugly- I would say stick to the autodraft!

I'm voting against a live draft too. I'm happy with how it is right now.

to the end it is...

as for draft date...

august 31st... draft status set to ready
september 2nd & 3rd... final pre-season games
september 9th... indianapolis at new england (1st regular season game)
september 12th... first sunday of regular season

this gives max time to take pre-season injuries into effect when you pre-rank, while also giving enough time to make moves before the first kickoff of the season.
