As always it was an enjoyable season.

Its good to put this out on the table early while its is still top of mind to debate and establish for next year.
Thanks Crasher for taking the initiative.

As far as a live draft (which we do for the Hockey League), I am for it. I don't think its possible geographically to get everyone at one physical spot Ayl.

Personally I enjoy the forum draft...but if we did make it a live draft, I know three of us are basically in The Rock's shadow and as of right now one is just not going to be available (Clown). I don't know where everyone else lives, but I know I've seen Hasan at The Rock for games so he can't be too far from it.

I live a ways away from the Rock (half hour) but do have seasons and usually in 120 though I managed to stow away in the lower level last Saturday.

I do like the forum draft very much, even with the drama that always crops up. Plus as I was reminded about in the hockey league, with a live draft there's always the possibility your season's over on draft day if you can't make the live draft or have computer issues...

Any roto fantasy sport, the bolded is true. But H2H football it's possible to miss the draft and win if you set your preferences / send in an absentee draft order ahead of time. In the league I run, our second place team this year was not at our draft. The draft-pick-trading would disappear though, which I like as part of the chaos of this league.

I most likely wouldn't be able to go to a live draft at a bar since I'll either be staying in Carolina this summer taking classes or studying abroad, so I'd obviously prefer we keep the draft as it currently stands.

Im against a PPR league, because Im already in one and i want variation in my 2 Leagues :P

Even though Value was joking, an IDP league would be cool.

On principal i'm going to name my team after both The Miz AND Zack Ryder this year just to spite him :P

Im on the fence about ROokie round, I dont care either way.

About keepers, I was already under the assumption it was the round they were drafted, so thats my opinion on that.

Im against bonuses (at least at 100 yards rushing...SO many people get that on a weekly basis. If theres going ot be a bonus make it 150 for both rushing and reciving)

Just a fun fact on this....19 WR's went over 1,000 yards receiving..... 14 RB's went over 1,000 yards rushing, only ONE RB went over 1,600 yards (barely) who is the only one who averaged said 100 yards a week B )

Calvin Johnson averaged 105 yards a game..... Victor Cruz and Wes Welker were in the high 90s a game....maybe you should be worried about 100 yard WRs :lol:

Season 3 was alright... the fantasy talk makes slightly more sense, but I felt like it lost steam near the end.
I was joking about a live in-person draft.

I like the distinct pace of our draft, sans the offline draft portion where you see nothing for a day, and then have 8 picks unloaded at the same time.

Here's an argument. Manning, the 15th round keeper... I'm more likely to roll the dice now.

I asked for that beforehand, and was told no; even after protest. It would have been very simple to call it as such in the moment.

Now? Let's rumble.
