  1. There was also Liberia, The idea was not new, and had already been done on a smaller scale. From Wiki on LiberiaThe history of Liberia is unique among African nations because of its relationship with the United States. It is one of the few countries in Africa, and the only country in West Africa, without roots in the European Scramble for Africa. It was founded and colonized by freed American slaves with the help of a private organization called the American Colonization Society in 1821-1822, on the premise former American slaves would have greater freedom and equality there.[4] Slaves freed from slave ships also were sent there instead of being repatriated to their countries of origin.[5] These colonists formed an elite group in Liberian society, and, in 1847, they founded the Republic of Liberia, establishing a government modeled on that of the United States, naming Monrovia, their capital city, after James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States and a prominent supporter of the colonization.
  2. No way - I saw them laughing - can you really hear it? If so that would be awesome (seriously).Yes! Could have been someone in the crowd I suppose, but it was pretty loud.
  3. DD defaults to a 16 week schedule, PD is 17 weeks. That causes an ~6% point reduction across the board. If you want it to match(or your league does play a 17 week schedule) then goto File, Setup, Schedule and add week 17. You would also then want to make sure week 17 is weighted properly in the game by game projection window.
  4. Nope, I think that's makes perfect sense. Manning is projected to throw 31 & 12 (esitmate). Thats a very high TD to interception ratio. As soon as you remove that penalty, Manning stays number 1, but all the others rise up (and bunch up). This is increasing the baseline players total point projection more than Mannings pont production. So even though Mannings total points goes UP, his VBD goes down, thus lowering his value.Maybe I'm thick, but explain that again? Are you saying that because Manning's throwing fewer INTs, there will be more yards/catches for other guys, so they rise up higher? Or are you saying that it makes Manning even LESS valuable as a QB, because he's not being penalized by the -2 points nearly as much as other QBs were, so it collapses the QB rankings closer together?The second part, manning is less valuable (lower VBD number, he is still a great QB) because he is currently being penalized less than all the other QB's.

  6. A couple ..1) If you are drafting online with the CBS draft room, use two PC's, or two monitors. Run the CBS draft room in one, the DD on the other. This way you only have to go to the draft room to make your pick, Most of the time you just enter the other teams picks and think about your next ones.2) It is OK to deviate from the DD projected pick. It is a tool, so is your brain.3) Mock, Mock, Mock, and then Mock some more. Get comfortable with the DD, get an idea of which players will be available where.4) Check out the default CBS projections and rankings. In the CBS draft tool it is recomending players to the other owners ... have an idea on who it is recomending and when.Good Luck.
  7. The DD is having troubles opening some league files from last year, especially keeper leagues. The easiest solution is to do a File -> New and create a fresh league file. The other solution is to: Exit the DD. Then open your league file (*.ddf) with noteplad and remove all the lines with players from the Draft Summary, Team Data, and Keeper List. Then save it, restart the DD and open with your league file with DD.
