I have a recommendation for posting picks: How about another pinned thread where everyone types: Round 1: LOTCB selects Trent Edwards...and so on.....so we can just all post our picks in that 1 thread and CRASHER's thread is just for the results themselves

Man, get yer panties unbunched Crash! I was just stating a comment... I've never seen a 12 hour clock before, and trust me, I've been in ALOT of weird fantasy leagues.

Anyway.. I'm surprised at the Gore pick TBH... I thought there were a few better backs out there, but I guess it was just me.

Well 5 was Gore's Yahoo! rank anyway :P I could have made a safer pick with Addai or even Jackson now that his holdout's done, but I can easily picture Gore having close to 2000 total yards (rushing and receiving) with double-digit TD's if healthy.

Besides, usually making safe picks have seldom got me anywhere, more often than not I go 6-8 every season :rolleyes: Plus all these guys have warts anyway, Jackson had a monster year two years ago sandwiched between merely solid years and now he's coming off a holdout with a new (expensive) deal. Addai's numbers do have a celing in the Colts' offense, plus he himself has never been a 300 carry back anyway. It basically comes down to personal preference past the first couple or so picks.

EDIT: Okay his Yahoo! rank is actually 8th, I must have got it confused with another list.

Oh pipe down everyone, CRASHER (and Clown) get snippy when you complain about the pace of the draft :P

But seriously, I think people are just on edge because the draft positioning took insanely long. Last year the draft itself started 16 days before the beginning of the season and finished 12 hours before the start of the season. This year we're starting 15 days before the beginning of the season so we'll see.

I do think it would be nice to have a few days before the season to use waivers, adjust rosters and plus it's a pain in the butt for CRASHER to have to constantly remind people to pick because of the time crunch.

And WE HAVE A TRADE :evil:

U-Dog Trade his first (7th), second (18th) and fourth (42nd) Picks

for my

first (12th), second (13th) and third (36th) Picks....

so with the #7 pick, I select Joesph Adaai (RB-Ind)

... move along!! B )

I guess U-dog figures it'll get around to the 12th pick by the time he comes back from vacation :evil:

It is kinda funny that you moved down from 8 to 12 in the pre-draft and then trade back up from 12 to 7 during the draft. Although it isn't for every round and at least it broke the monotony of everyone else staying as is.

If Jackson had ended his holdout before I picked my draft spot I might have moved down a slot or two just to pick in the middle of each round.

he's cell phone accesible... it's fair enough :)

yeah I know... but I really thought Adaai was gonna go 6th and he was the guy I wanted anyway... and personally I like the swing picks late rounds better anyway... this was too good a chance to not take, so I did what I do best... be unconventional.... if DR had taken Adaai... I'd have sat on my thmbs and done what I call a "Judo Draft".... sit back and let the people above me sift out the crap :P

Oh I actually think it's a good move for you anyway, there was maybe seven or eight first-tier players imo if you count Moss as well (with the six RB's that have been picked and Brady) and you got one of them basically for moving back six spots in the fourth round since the first and second rounders balance out.

Crasher, you didn't update the title of the other "no posting" thread to say Aylbert is up when you input yer pick.

I PMed both people on the clock... while ayl would get a good player based on the auto-pick (Randy moss) #8 is awful early to go WR.... we'll see in the next 45 minutes I would guess.... :noclue:

The only arguement there is that the other thread title didn't put him on the clock til this morning.

And wasn't it Aylbert who had a hard time getting onto the site during the workday? So he would be able to pick prior to 6:26PM.

I believe that is when hasan updated the title to put Ayl on the clock????????

I understand moving on... I'm just not a fan of going to bed not on the clock, then off to work and the first free moment I have and my pick is up, gone, and moved on.

I'll keep Moss, but would have drafted MBIII.

Thanks again Masked for the PM though.
