Talk to me about the slow draft.  How long do I have to pick?  What if I miss my window? 

pay attention or get out now. pickers will post an @Bob Loblaw when it's your turn. i don't like time limits but reserve the right to give you Boris Diaw any time i feel you're clogging things up

ETA: we have around 10 days to do 14 rounds and missing wk 1 aint the biggest deal in the world - we can be mellow but anybody who plays my-time-is-more-important-than-yours will get short-sheeted

Why don't you create your own ####### thread instead of polluting this one?

There are several others who aren't in your league.  Show some consideration.

In case the revolution wins, I created a thread in basketball forum: https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/771117-a-cappella-fantasy-basketball-league/

 

If people use the "follow" feature for that thread, they get an alert when anyone posts.  I did that when we had the mock NBA draft back in June and it worked nicely for me since I wouldn't check that forum often otherwise.

Just saying.

You are literally the only one complaining. Just avoid the thread for a couple weeks and let us have our fun.

This draft and any other activity specific to this league will need to be held in a separate thread. Thanks, everyone.

How difficult is it too make another thread?  What is the downside? 

You have to follow an extra thread, plus it will be fun to look back and mock picks.

If we @msudaisy26 the next person you'll get an alert that takes you directly to that thread. Honestly I can understand why people not involved wouldn't want this thread clogged up.

i'm so sick of this place i could scream. if i didnt have ongoing therapeutic relationships with folks on the message board and long & great friendships in the forums, i'd be gone. how the complaints of a few thread cops can get admin to entirely overstep their bounds & overrule the will of the majority continues to astound.

i am not herding cats in order to make this league go. as i originally did when i started it, the league is back on Yahoo Live Draft for 7:30pm est Sunday Oct 14. Do it with us or dont.

I think it would be fine in that other thread. If I give you an @wikkidpissah you get an alert and if you click it takes you right there.

Since I missed the boat on registration, I will throw my hat in the ring of potential co-owners. As someone who chooses to spend several nights/week watching the Nets, you can be assured that I have fantastic judgment in all things basketball.

Oh! I'm not in because I can't draft because I'm out of town the next two weeks, but does anyone want a co-owner?  I will gladly take credit for anything good and blame you for anything bad.  

i'd be up to co-own if you want bud. limit 2 T-wolves though

Whether any inflammatory language is used or not, people aren't allowed to call out other posters.

A separate league can have its own thread.

And I've spent all the time on this that I'd care to. Thanks.

I can see how the inner pride of good work might overwhelm you, especially on a Friday

Been to the politics forum ever?

Nobody was called out here. Mssr. Pissah merely pointed out that that a lion's share of the posting lately is done by people who are going to be in this draft. And the people who were complaining don't post much. That's no knock against them, he was just citing statistics. 

As someone who is now not in the league anymore b/c I can't make the live draft, I'd be fine with the draft being here. If I just need to find out what's going on in the NBA, I can go to 30,488 different other websites. The mouth-breathers in here never really say anything worthwhile in here anyway.

Usually we have to wait until the May for the select few to ruin this thread. This year one of them is starting early.

To determine a random draft order, I assigned each owner a number and generated a random sequence from random.org. Each owner's number was as follows:

@Spartans Rule 1

@Wu-banger 2

@Long Ball Larry 3

@Moe. 4

@bananafish 5

@Jayrod 6

@caustic 7

@DJackson10 8

@Dr. Octopus 9

@modogg 10

@TobiasFunke 11

@Good Posting Judge 12

@Bob Loblaw 13

@Juxtatarot 14

It was deleted, I'll be setting up a new page on Yahoo. Slow draft will happen in the basketball forum in the thread Dr. O created.

Does anybody wanna commish? I'm ok with anybody.

Frosty and I are pending, as we can only do a slow draft. No biggie if we can't make it.

I can, as long as someone fills me in on the scoring/lineup settings etc. that were agreed upon in the original league. I think slow draft is best.

Seems like Caustic is the commish.  And slow draft is on.

I say do the draft here. What else are we going to talk about here for the next couple of weeks? Whether or not a Jimmy Butler led Miami Heat team can steal a fifth seed in the Eastern Conference?

I don't think it was random either.
