It's pretty even, and I think if I do set it up people should at least try to do the draft on ESPN...and definitely show up for draft. I could also (I think) assign best QBs on board to manager who doesn't shot up by round 12 or something (or after everyone else has at least 2) so one team isn't at a vast disadvantage with a manager giving up early.

Will wait or try to find another player. There is one guy that came to the NFL forum..might even had PHX in his name, asking if we had a spot in that league and we don't...so maybe I ask him instead of one of the other experts who plays in a lot of leagues.

Also, being in Greece, what times of day work for you? Or will you stay up extra late or wake up extra early if needed?


I can do anything that doesn't fall in the 8 to 18:00 In my local time.

The way I see it

If we held the draft at 11:00 AM Phoenix time it would be 2:00 PM in New York and 9:00 PM in Greece.

If we did it on a Week end I expect that would work for everyone.

Just a suggestion
We hired the coach I have wanted for a long time.

Now it is time to turn this mess into a winner.

Go Suns!

Yeah, it seems like that is when we did it before when I was in a league with him. Though looking at his times, it almost seemed as if he can't do it during his work day but can do it any time outside of that...at any time in the middle of the night, though I'm sure that's not the preference.

I guess we're gonna set up the league in the upcoming days. Then decide on what weekend to draft.

I think 9. I was looking at my other draft I have set up so far today on espn and it is for Sept 4th at 2pm CT.

So if we do it on a weekend we could do Sept 5th, that Sunday, at like 12pm Phoenix time. If that doesn't work we can figure something else.

I usually like to wait until preseason is done (in case of injury), and it finishes the previous weekend, though I doubt many (or any) fantasy level starters play in the last preseason game anyway. So that Saturday would be August 28th if we wanted to do it earlier.

The 28th works for me. I wouldn't mind doing it a little earlier. Maybe 11am if there's no issues with that....

Noon for you is like 10pm for me right? That works. Should I set it up on yahoo or someone else wanna do it on espn? Fantrax could be an option too.

i can make any time work. If i cant make it for whatever reason I am cool with the auto-draft. Seen many auto-draft teams go deep in the playoffs in the past.

I've done several but never fantrax. I can set up on ESPN or you, Kyler on Yahoo. Doesn't really matter. I like the way I can customize rosters and scoring on espn, though you can probably do that anywhere. I don't really change offensive scoring much though.

I will create poll and change title.
