the ayl works in mysterious ways.... but now he just wants to draft
Well last year's draft (i.e after the draft order and keepers) started on August 18 and the season began September 9 - of course the draft ended that afternoon. Right now we're at August 13 with this year's season beginning September 8 and haven't even posted the draft order yet
And I do get what CRASHER's saying about certifying the draft order, especially since he got first slot last year (though he dropped back to twelve with it) In future years we could always do what we do in the hockey league, just give the league winner the first option to where to pick and randomize the rest though I kinda like the total randomization too since choosing your spot probably means more here than it does in the hockey league.
Plus it's not going to be as rushed next year when there's no lockout to worry about.
Well it HAS been fun watching you guys fill time in here
But now the waiting has passed (and if you hate your spot, blame Laflamme.......HE picked them )
I should pull a Bettman and make a long boring speech here to attention whore and dampen the whole presentation....naaaahhhhh:
Let the madness BEGIN!!!
LaFlamme... Nobodies going to trade with me for the coveted 8th to-pick-your-position pick. You suck.
Anyways, starting with RSC - When you make your draft position pick, you must also announce your keeper.
This gives color on the draftpool before the next person chooses their position.
Edited the post up top to reflect that the draft order and keeper selections are now underway, hopefully we can get this done in a couple days but I'm not counting on it since last year it took a couple people five days just to select their draft slot
If we get it done by this weekend that should be enough time for the draft, going past Sunday would really be pushing it (not to mention cut down on trade activity cause people'll feel rushed), especially since there's always a lull on Labor Day weekend.
I will take the 1st draft spot, and my keeper will be Hakeem Nicks, who was an 8th round pick last year.
Crap....I wanted to start putting the results in as we go but I can't till the 12 spots are solidified
And after the first (of MANY) conference calls.....the Reigning and DEFENDING....two-time....two-time, NJDevs Champ (IS HERE!), welcomes back the Puppy Power of Michael Vick and drops to spot 12 (shock and awe right?)
Not really shock and awe, I figured you'd go back to 12 since you usually try to do that - especially with Vick being the keeper.
I'm two for two in my pick/keeper predictions so far, the next few are a little harder to read though
Aylbert's putting them in the other (locked) thread, in case someone doesn't know what spots are taken when their turn comes up.
So if I keep Charles, who was my second pick last year, do I still have my 1st overall pick? A little confused on what the keeper payment is.
Also shouldn't I wait to see who people keep before I should have to make a draft order decision?
If you keep Charles you give up your second-round pick. The rosters are on the first page, it's the same round you drafted them last year.
Don't really think other teams' keepers should matter when deciding your own, especially since some are already obvious anyway.
EDIT: Oh okay you mean the teams at the back end should do their keepers first, eh it doesn't really matter that much. Last year we went in random order to declare keepers. Plus at this point it'd be a little time consuming to do the keepers in inverse order, then do the draft order.
But since you're third you definitely have to decide your draft order position now unless you want to trade out of it
I'll stay at 3rd.
Second draft spot is open...CRASHER dropped to 12. I just meant you were third in the order to pick.
And are you keeping Charles?
are there anymore spots?
Sorry for the confusion. I guess I'll move to 2nd. Charles is my keeper.
My point was is 2nd a good spot to start if guys keep Johnson, Peterson and Foster. This is something I would have liked to know.

Johnson and Peterson were kept last year and thusly ineligible for keeping, and the guy who had Foster kept Vick
Good to know. Liking the 2nd pick even more now.
