  1. I think RMT works automatically only through one of the draft apps... You can go here to enter it in manually:
  2. Since the APP is going to be free this year, I'll check it out on my laptop. I've still got a ton of questions and apprehension...but I know right now what I'm looking for out of it and I'll see how it stacks up.
  3. Interesting email today from AT&T. Of course it's from AT&T - someone figured out how much they were losing to pro-rated services....
  4. I have to agree with @Simon Shepherd If you have the a stable league with players who know what they are doing and a baseline of your drafts going back at least 3-5 years, you can really maximize the capability of the Classic. That said, FBG's decided a few years ago to focus on the iPad app - there were many great suggestions that were never implemented and the Classic has is more of a 'what could have been'. If you are in a redraft league with owners who don't put much effort into their draft and don't have draft tendencies, I would use the APP - it's more powerful.
  5. Not sure why it hasn't been posted, but the new tutorial is out! 43 minutes long - I'll have a go of it soon.
  6. @jediknt4444 @Simon ShepherdYes, one of the strengths of CDD was gamebygame. It took projected points per player, incorporating SOS, and totaled them up for each team by week. The killer part was that it helped you balance BYE weeks and towards the end of the draft, you could have it look at remaining players by position, taking into account your own weakest weeks. So if you knew you needed a QB2, GBG would look at the BYE week and 5 toughest weeks of your QB1 and find the QB2 with the highest scores in those weeks.
  7. @Simon Shepherd When do you expect the tutorials to come out?
  8. Thanks Simon. Is there a tutorial somewhere that best describes a technique for understanding and entering tendencies? ADP is useful because I know owner H is going to go RB, RB, WR, QB almost every year. I also know that as a league, someone will take Gronk near his ADP every year. My data shows we hit our 8th round baselines +/- 1 every year. Understanding how to use that data with your program would be awesome.
  9. Thanks Simon. I'm went through the online version and I'm still looking for two features: 1. I use old data to create a league specific ADP and my own baselines. Is there a way for me to upload them into the APP? 2. We use a 3rd Round Flip draft in one league. I haven't set that league up yet, but I'm assuming that I can import the draft order into the draft APP without problems? Thanks!
  10. In case you missed it: $293.94 $395.95 if you want the RZ too. Lot's of folks will be calling in for that discount.
  11. I upgraded all my equipment last month (my old DVR was 6+ years old). I called Customer Service and they wanted to charge me $400 for the new Genie 2. I was so mad at them that the CS rep actually hung up. Knowing what I know from this thread, I called to cancel and immediately got into Customer retention. He noted my 20 years with DirecTV and gave me the new G2 and 4 mini Genies for free. 2 year contract. The rep was a funny, chatty guy so I expressed my concern about being able to negotiate a Sunday Ticket discount and asked him how to best approach it. He indicated that you should always wait until just two weeks before the season starts, get to the loyalty department and they always have deals - though they change from day-to-day.
  12. I started late this year because I've been busy and on the road. Here's the deal: I called the standard, 1800-Directv number and was only able to get $25 off, Free Redzone and that's it. Then the ID10T charged me $25 for the RZ. I went ahead and called the 866 number and the guy there explained it to me: When you call in to the regular line, you get 'Active Care' and their best deal.. They won't give you free ST, because the season started. At least now, you have to completely disconnect, and be disconnected for 2 full days before you can call the 866 number. When you call the 866 number, if you are a customer in good standing, (I've subscribed for 20+ years) they will try to get you the best deals (big discounts, ST for free). There was a twist. Because the ID10T added Red Zone on to my package, there is no way to pull it off - it has to go to the Sunday Ticket desk. The lady there gave me STMAX for $100. I called the main line back and got my $25 discount for 12 months. Total discount - $430. Not bad.
  13. If you input your league settings into DD you can generate a Cheat Sheet. File > Print > Cheat Sheets
  14. Same... Of course I'm so familiar with Classic it will need to be a significant upgrade (ie: Custom ADP) for me to use the APP.
