I'm in, and I'd love to see BWW in this league. Would make it even more competitive.

We had a historically bad season in 2008, it would take a hell of performance to top that one out.

Both Cafe and RK seem to be the most consistent forums, neither ever finished last. RK has a slight edge in winning percentage but FBC has 2 forum championships and 3 individual champions to boot.

We either suck balls or perform very well. Out of 5 years, we have 2 forum championships and 2 last place finishes, both of them being so horrendous that I shook my head in disgust whilst digging this stuff up.

Cap. from busersports checking in. Thanks for the chance for redemption guys. Don't think I'll be trading my first round pick this year. I blame Matt for not being harder on me. :oops:

You should have only dusted off the history books for the last two years.... we are on a huge roll, and I want a 3-peat.

Matt best be recruiting some of BuserSports finest and having some pre-draft meetings to make up for last year's showing. ;)

Well, drafting two guys in the mid-rounds who went straight to the "injured list" (yours truly), and trading away Kevin Durant (Cap), WON'T be on the top of our "to do" lists this season, I promise you that! :P

And I have no clue WHAT kind of "Jobu" magic one of you cats put on Matt for him to get stuck in the basement last season! :confused:

Rest assured, we'll give everyone a good run for their money this season...as long as we can keep Cap off the alcohol... :wink:

I have been wondering about the same thing.

If anyone has a direct communication line to any Rotokingdom members, I'd appreciate if you can give them a heads up. I sent them an e-mail but it may have went straight to the spam folder.

I'll get in touch with celticsfan from RK shortly. Would strongly recommend the latter date for the draft, whatever that may be. We've had some minor hiccups here and there, but this league has never been in real danger of not finishing the draft on time. Better to have a clearer picture of depth charts, player movement/roles so everyone starts out on equal footing.

3rd of September is nearly a month away and I think by that time, all prominent free agents will be signed with their new teams so we should have a pretty good idea about depth charts come draft time.

Ha! That Durant trade not only benefited yours truly, but it probably made the difference in REALGM winning the battle last season, as I traded my top guy (Al Horford) just before he got injured in that deal.

I totally agree with Gokce here. By September, the NBA offseason becomes a desert. Great time to start the draft.
