View Full Version : Availability for drafting - please respond

03-13-02, 08:45 AM
Before we make a decision about when and how to draft, it would be as well to check when everyone's available. We'd kind of done this unofficially, but let's see if there's a date that we can get all 20 owners to meet up on. If you could, please list available dates and times (morning, afternoon, evening EASTERN TIME) when you could be available for a draft.

Me? From Friday 15th, I can do any time, although evenings would be a little better. Before Friday, it's afternoons and evenings only.

If it turns out that we can't get everyone together at once, we might start a slow-draft on the forum, or just bite the bullet and automate. I don't like the idea, but . . .

Be seeing you,

Up to then: from like 10am (ET) on to 8pm..

Yeah, I'm not just entirely sold on the idea of having some people drafting live and some using pre-ranked lists, because there's bound to be an advantage to the owners who can draft live. If we can arrange a live date where the pre-ranking owners don't mind, then fine, but it would be nice to let everyone play under the same rules.

We might have to go with pre-ranked lists anyway, though.

Be seeing you,

I'm waiting to hear back on a couple interviews..I'll answer this either tonight or tomorrow though -- promise...just wanted you to know I saw it. :)

Any day during the weekdays: 10pm-12am ET

No, I will not be available for the draft during the afternoon or morning, since I have school.

Hopefully, it will happen during the time I like. If not, I would guess the only way would be the forum draft or auto-draft.


BTW Sax, I am taking over yankeesrules2000. Larissa (Luvtino) is paying, I think.

I'm pretty much available anytime after 6 30 ET.

03-13-02, 06:52 PM
Friday the 15th is okay, as is Saturday the 16th anytime of day.
I have a pretty whacked out work schedule(sometimes I am on the day shift and sometimes I am on nights). But if I have the date well enough in advance, I should be able to work around it.Just let me know.

03-13-02, 09:11 PM
I think we just need to make the date way in advance, like two weeks, so everyone can make plans to make it.

03-13-02, 09:22 PM
Any day after 3/20, definitely in the evening, Sundays are the best though.

I still vote for autopick though. It is really just so much easier through Yahoo.

PS; when can we choose Team Names?

Later, Sax and all.

03-13-02, 09:44 PM
Would have to be in the evenings on weeknights - weekends are definitely out, except maybe Sunday afternoon.

03-13-02, 11:11 PM
For me, any day after the 17th, preferably at night. That's when I'd be back at school, and at that time I'm practically glued to my computer.

When your payment is received, you should get a PM from Boz giving you the login and password for the B-B.com league. You can then sign in and create your team. We've got five owners up there so far.

Be seeing you,

I'm available all weekend after 12:30PM ET Saturday....

03-15-02, 12:20 PM
Days/times that are NOT good:

March 22 after 5PM (Eastern)
March 23
March 29 after 5PM
March 30
March 31 (Easter)

03-15-02, 04:43 PM
well, my schedule for tomorrow opened up..

jj -- perhaps we should consider opening it up to all the owners, and collect the $10 later? :( I hate to do this.. but if we don't get things rolling, we're going to have to restructure the league for just those that have paid, and close it off -- or do a draft on the day we turn our taxes in :)
