I'll start off

QB: Vick 7

RB: Ingram 6

WR: CJ 5, Brown 4, T. Smith 8

TE: Davis 9, Witten 5

Couldn't resist Witten late in the 6th as he usually goes in the 2nd. That's enough of a discount that I can wait until the second half of the season for him to return. I actually considered him at the 4/5 turn but passed because of Davis. He should be back when the teams thin and injuries mount. Looking for a 20+ score at TE later in the season.

On a ppg basis, Vick outscores Newton this year. I have him on par with Stafford. Normally wouldn't take him in the second but at the time I knew Davis/Finley/Witten would be there at 3.3 so I pulled the trigger.

Feel good about my WRs but still have some work to do here.

Got crushed at RB. I can't believe how quick you guys are pulling the trigger in this draft. Ingram should be a serviceable part of a committee if I can actually draft a committee.

ARod is running away with this draft.

Gronk - Elite TE.

AJ - mid 2nd is a steal. 1st rd ppg talent.

FJax - meh, but solid in this format.

Matthews - His 3rd 1st round talent on his roster. Absolute steal in the 4th. Was hoping he would fall to me.

Garcon - Decent WR2. Thank god Bowe didn't fall to him.

Ben R - 6th rd? Seriously? 15th QB off the board.

Unless he gets killed by injuries we could be palying for 2nd place.

Blue Kun going with the 3 QB set.... interesting!

Honestly I was amazed Big Ben and Schaub were still there and I'm unsurprised Rudnicki jumped all over it. Wouldn't have bothered with Cutler had I known those guys would drop to the 6th round. At that point in the draft though I saw very little value from any other position, either the player would be there next round or I'd be reaching. Hillis was the only other guy I considered. By round five I had already given up on the idea of having a balanced squad. Might as well be really good at two areas and just hope for mass WR's to salvage.

Also the speed of this past round has just been brutal compared to how briskly we were moving.

If you think MBSL1 is painful try MBSL2 on for size. We are lucky if we get through 8-10 picks in a day. Some people act like they're allergic to the pre-draft feature. :boxing:

Being trying to help rr out to no avial. He's been stuck in a meeting. Did get his pick in but can't figure out how to make mop's pick. commish password is bass1234 . If someone who is familiar with mfl would like to try and make his Amendola pick that would be great.

Took my home league off MFL (to RTS) a few years ago and I'm beginning to remember why. Not the easiest site to navigate and the layout is just awful IMO.

do people not get emails from MFL?

People need to go to their settings and they can set it up to receive e-mails on who has been drafted and also to receive an e-mail to let them know when they are up. By having these features set up a person should never time out I would think. :shrug:

That may be, but it wasn't exactly moving at warp speed before that either.

Re: MBSL2 - this is just not working......

We need the proper timeout penalties in place to force people to pay attention.

Also, I think we need to go to a 2 hour clock.

thru 11......

spread a little thin this time of year but still trying...

1.07 Drew Brees NOS QB

hopefully carries me through the cut line some weeks...

5.07 Kevin Smith DET RB

7.07 Ben Tate HOU RB

8.10 Cedric Benson GBP RB

11.07 Evan Royster WAS RB

three starters and a potential home run if Foster goes down.....

3.07 Greg Jennings GBP WR

4.10 Jeremy Maclin PHI WR

6.10 Austin Collie IND WR

9.07 Brandon LaFell CAR WR

10.10 Eddie Royal SDC WR

liked this group a lot more a week or so ago....LaFell and Royal picks made a little earlier than I might have liked to address WR4 and 5, but with Collie likely done, felt I needed to try and cover my butt a little here....

2.10 Gates, Antonio SDC TE

need a monster return on this investment.....think it's first time I have drafted Gates in maybe 5-7 years (in any league)...

Well first of all the clock is not set to a time zone I can figure out - it's not ET or PT or MT so how do you know when someone actually postedSecond and perhaps more important for our survivor drafts, there is no way to show when a player has a shortened clock which was easy to do here. .... would be nice to know if the guy ahead of you was on a 2 hour window instead of having the full four hours

My times seem accurate. There is a time zone adjustment you can make. Go to; For owner tab>>>select franchise set up>>>>> select custom>>>>> use drop down box for your time zone>>>>submit changes.Your second point will prove more difficult. I think we can only post in the thread who is on a reduced clock and the commish(someoen with password) would have to change it????? Any other suggestions for addressing this????

Thu Aug 23 5:48:11 a.m. MT 2012

It says that is what time I made my pick this morning .......fortunately that is several hours before I got out of bed this morning .......the PICK times are WRONG

There is not a way to set up seperate clocks for individual owners. I did submit a ticket to MFL and they added it to the wish list for next year.

So other than manual running the clock, ther eis not a way to do this.
