Hah, point taken. For the record though, it was yahoo's fault, not my own. They need to increase the number of characters allowed for team names. I wanted to go with a Will Ferrell Anchorman reference, but it was a tad too long.
Hopefully yahoo will make the change soon, so I can adjust it to: "Brad, are you happy now you whiny b!tch?"
The draft will not be today..; In fact, the league will be deleted and recreated for a later online draft date... I sent out messages from Yahoo (from commish account) as soon as I could, because once pre-draft started the draft date could not be changed..
Long story short, I called Brad to let him know I was having trouble getting to draft board and he is stuck in the studio and forgot that the temporary draft date was set for today. I tried getting the draft date changed from his account, but couldn't due to pre-draft already starting. He will have to delete the league and recreate it for a later date..
----Note to Brad IIRC once draft has started you cant just delete the league from commish tools.. It will take a day or two to get it done by emailing Yahoo (via help section) they will delete and you can recreate the league once that is done. I am posting here to not bother you in the studio anymore today.. Call me later, bro..
I'm not tryin' to be a dick, but people miss the draft every year and chances are Mark would have dropped most of the players he drafted anyway... Just playin' bout that last part, but seriously. I'm pretty sure I missed the last two drafts and I didn't request to delete the league. Everyone was there with the exception of 2 people, one being the commish who set the date. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but if not then I guess we'll re-draft.
Very sorry guys... That date was only tentative and I always post here on E when the real draft is approaching, but I somehow forgot the date I had set, until Mark called me. Anyways... I made a new league with the same scoring and everything as the other one and sent out invites to all owners. Draft is again tentatively set for Sep. 5th at 7:30PST-10:30PST. If that works for everyone then we will leave it, if not, post here any issues with that date and/or time. Sorry again, and especially if anyone changed plans to be here today. My bad
When Mark called me I was having a smoke in between songs for this new AC/DC project I am working on. I threw together a band with some local players to see how close we could get to the songs on Back In Black. Keep in mind if you listen, these songs were tracked straight up live (all of us playing and singing at the same time, straight through, one take) so the songs are a bit rougher than I am used to. But for only four hours of tracking and mixing total, I think they came out pretty good. I usually take a few hours for each SONG when I do serious recordings. I will make a seperate thread so others can listen too.
Damn man I missed the draft and I am happy with my team. This sucks! Cant we just use both leagues? Cuz chances are I will miss the other draft too. I took the time to set up my pre draft player rankings because I knew I would more than likely miss this draft and Im still happy with the results. Oh well do whatever you all gotta do, I just wanna play some damn FF!! Just sucks cuz now i gotta rank all my players again since Ill probably miss the new draft too. F*ck it tho Im not complaining. As long as I can still get Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson or Ochocinco or whateverthefuck name he is going by this year,Im cool.
twiz, you can use the same player ranking by seleting the option in draft setting..
Reece.. I actually like my team, I wouldn't mind keeping this league as well. Sadly enough, It'll probably do better with this team than a team that I actually draft.lol BUT it's not like i couldn't be available for the draft, I tried logging on many times but couldn't.. I did eventually fix the problem thanks to a tip that snow gave me..
So only Mark and I didn't actually draft? I didn't know that at all... I thought alot of people missed it or the people that did make it were told by Mark that we were going to redraft. So what exactly ended up happening?
If the majority want to just keep this league and play on, we will. If the majority wants to redraft in the new league, that's ok too. I am fine either way.
i like the idea of keeping this one and redrafting for the new one.. It's nowhere near as time consuming as baseball. By the time I got to the draft room only a couple peeps were there with the draft going on.. There is already a decrepancy in the statment that we were the only 2 that missed as Twiz also said he wasn't there. The last 2 years, i've missed the draft and my team sucked.. I feel that my team is better this year, but i still think it the fair for everyone attend the draft when possible.. I called you before the draft started letting you know that I couldn't log on, so you know that I would have been in there if possible..I obviously vote for a redraft if we don't keep both, unless the puss_ies and worried that they will lose if everyone get equal opportunities!!1 I'm just sayin'.. lol
I doubt I'll join the second league. I've neglected my baseball team towards the end of this year already, and I'm afraid I won't be able to keep up with another league (considering I'm in 2 already) between taking 21 hours of classes. Sorry guys. I'm glad we got everything worked out though. Good luck. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna wax muhfuckas... A-Rog, McNeezy, 'Dre Johnson, Anquan, LeSean "The Real" McCoy, Ant Gates, Brent "Don't call me Tom" Celek, Forte, Ben "I R@pe B1tches" Roethlisberger, Vinny "DWI" Jackson, and Patty Will, baby!!
LOL at reece's cute nicknames for all his players...
...I'm in favor of keeping the league we drafted if people will participate. FF is super low maintenance and I was there for the entire draft. I'm all for the new league too. LET'S THROW SOME CASH ON IT!
I got to thinking... The problem I see with another draft is that it diminishes the value of both leagues. What's the point in playing in two separate leagues with the same people? I feel like people who end up with a better team in the other league will neglect our current league and vice versa. That being said, if people really want to do another league--which I see no reason for considering everyone has a pretty good team (sans Blaine who drafted Carson Palmer #1 overall)--then we should at least change it up a bit by doing an auction draft. Just my .02... And yes, I know I said I wasn't going to participate, but I just can't say no to you guys. Ecoustics Fam: We somethin' like the mafia.
I'm game either way. I was there last night but if we want to redo it for Brad and Mark, no skin off my back. I'm happy with my team but I like doing the drafts so I'll do it again if people want to. No complaints from me regardless.
I feel bad that Brad and Mark didn't get to draft... sounds like Brad didn't even get to set his pre-rankings
I'm down for whatever. If we do a second league, I'll definitely join. Maybe we could change up the settings just to give it a different vibe. At the same time, I understand Reece's point. For me personally, I would still participate in both leagues regardless of how successful each team was, that's just how I ball. I just fought my azz off last week in a FBB league knowing I'd finish somewhere between 11 and 14 out of 14 teams. Better f@#$ing believe I finished 11th. Feels like I just won the ship
don't delete the 2nd league. If there are a couple less players than that in itself will change the league considerably.. There are 6 people signed up as of now.. If thats all we get, then roll with it.. cool?
I think I did think of it first. I mean its not like I seen it somewhere and stole it. He may not be talking about my team but look at the date he posted that. Its right after we created our league. I dunno for sure but cmon Ehren I suck at life so please let me think that they are talking about my team,I need this man! lol
Lol Twiz I believe you. You don't suck at life, we all appreciate you very much.
I'm kind of over the fantasy team name thing. I don't care to spend more than about ten seconds thinking of names. I'll just plug in a movie reference or something. The only one I currently use involving a player-name-pun, is "Forte Akers n' a Mule", which I've been doing in one league for a couple years, and is 100% original. I'm sure other people have thought of the same thing or something similar.
Twiz, that sh!t cracks me up so hard. I must have seen it 20 times by now, and I literally laugh out loud still, no exaggeration. I don't know why. The actor who says that line in the commercial plays Silas on Weeds, which is one of the funniest shows around, maybe that's why I find him funny.
