aw so someone left the league so we're down to 8 players...we can start a league now with just 8 players or wait for 2 more players to have a 10 players league or wait for 4 more players so we can have a 12 players league.

if yall want to have a full 12 players league...i can "publish" the league and add our league to the published list of available Custom Leagues so anyone can join...this way the spots can fill up faster and we don't have to stress out on trying to get PSD people to join.

lol...ok...i gotta wait for everyone to respond though. I don't want to make the draft tonight and everyone misses it because no1 knows it's tonight. I pm-ed everyone about this but so far...you're the only one who responded :(

ok...so i'm going to make the draft tonight at around midnight so we can start ASAP. Hopefully 2 more people join by than so we'll have a full 12 players league...if not, a 10 players league is good enough. I'm going to msg everyone on PSD to let them know, if for ANY reason ANY of you can't make it to the draft, let me know ASAP so I can push back the draft time so everyone can make it.

Yea i know a couple people that said they would join, and I sent them the information too. If they haven't registered yet then I'm not sure they're going to take it seriously. Forget them I guess, unless someone wants a 12 player league, I could ask them again. For now, I'm fine with 10.

we have 11 people now...1 more to make it 12 *crosses fingers* :D

but yeea...

so i'm going to make the draft tomorrow morning Sunday, Oct 26 @ 8 AM central. We have 11 players now...hopefully 1 more person will join before 8 AM tomorrow so we can have a full 12 players league. If 1 more person doesn't join...we will play a 10 players league and i will have to kick the last person who joined out (sorry bdalakerdude32) cause if we don't have a even number by draft time, according to yahoo rules, we won't be able to have a live draft.

so yeea...if yall know anyone else who wants to play, now's the time to tell them to join

I would like the draft to be tomorrow evening. Somewhere between 5 PM and 8 PM.

10-25-2008, 06:14 PM
so yeea...there has been a complaint from a member that 8 am central in the morning is too early. what do yall think? should I postpone it? If we postpone it...we probably won't be able to draft till Tuesday because I, personally, can't make the rest of sunday because my girlfriend is dragging me out with her and i won't be able to make it on monday because i got school in the morning at work in the evening. In addition to all of that, Yahoo has allotted that the latest time we can draft on Sunday is 5 pm central for some reason...otherwise i would change the time to 11 PM central on Sunday.





thoughts?

I can do 6 am (Cali Time) but my team may come out looking pretty bad since ill be half awake.

At 6 in the morning my GM skills go from Jerry West to Isiah Thomas

actually isiah thomas is pretty good at drafting, so i bet you'll still do well. :smoking:

isiah thomas could be a better fantasy GM than jerry west.

i msg-ed everyone multiple times about this and i waited 24+ hours for responses. i even stayed up late until 1 AM to wait for responses. and not only did i msg everyone about this on PSD multiple times, i posted in this thread and i posted a whole bunch of notes in the league.

yesterday 3:07PM was the first you mentioned it was this morning.
i appreciate the attempt, but i wasnt on last night...
im thinking i dont have to worry about the draft, its on wednesday.
i am out sealing a driveway and helping move things out of a house all day. i go to sleep, wake up, boom draft is gone.
ill do my part to try to update the team, but dont expect me to be super-into a team where i missed the draft b/c you decided to switch it to early in the morning w/o me finding out 1st.

If some of you guys want to have yet another team there still is PSD league 4 also (hoping) to draft later today (5 PM East Coast).

Fobolous I read your PM too late, and by the time I did I think your league was already full, so sorry for the fact that I didn't respond untill now.

Mike Bibby and Tony Parker.

I'm looking to trade one of the two PGs for a legit bigman.
some teams are lacking PGs so heres the chance!
players can be added to make the trade fair, etc.
send me any offers, try not to low-ball ;)

Yea I wasn't able to make the draft, it was a little early. I ended up choosing both gilbert arenas and monta ellis, both who are injured. Oh well, we'll see what happens. I'll still be into it unless i start sucking big time.
