Pages

This week's deadline is 2/21/05.

San Diego @ Cleveland
Philadelphia @ Kansas City
Green Bay @ Indianapolis
NY Giants @ Pittsburgh
St. Louis @ Jacksonville
Washington @ Detroit
Baltimore @ Carolina
Houston @ New England

As usual, I'm available most any night (edit: except maybe not on Thursday this week) after 2100 CST.

Certis, let me know when you''re available.

Legion (Mr. 83 points!), I''m available to play on Thursday after 5:30pm CST.

Spy, When is good for you? I can do Thursday, Friday, weekend... Almost every night but tonight.

Bagga: Sunday evening (anytime) and Monday night (after 10pm EST) are about the only nights I''m available this week...

OK, let''s shoot for monday night after 10. Sunday nights are iffy.

Sounds good.

Hey [NoUser], I can play after 9 p.m. central time most nights. Just post here and let me know when you can play.

EDIT: in case of doubt, yes I am being sarcastic.

Swampy - lets shoot for tomorrow night (Thursday) - what time works for you? I will be available all day on Th and Friday as well. The weekend days I can do after 8PM EST - I work on Sat and Sun.

- Spy

Looks like I''m up against Logan and Legion yet again this week. Every time I think I''m out... they keep pulling me back in.

Spy, I have Bags in the other league at 8 on Thursday, so can we do 7 PM Thursday?

This week''s deadline is 2/21/05.

Wow is a five day window to schedule games the norm? If so no wonder it seems like I have no time to get games scheduled. I''m gonna have to ask for an extension this week as i''ll be out of town for the weekend giving me tonight and monday night only to get a game in. Also I would vote we go to a permanent seven day schedule and move the week up early if everyone gets their games in.

I think that was originally Grumpy''s intent. If people have the game scheduled and are consistant players the 5 day period is flexible.

I know this is a long way to go to answer the question but I like to support my arguments.

We''ll be going with 5 day game weeks and a 10 game season. [size=8]All Pro, EQ off.

I would like people who are willing to commit to playing all of their games in a timely fashion, and to keeping opponents and me advised when they will miss a game to sign up.

It is understood you may miss a game. It isn''t acceptable though, not to tell your opponent or me that you will. Being considerate of your fellow players is an absolute must. If I have had to chase you around for your game in season 1, or JMJ has had to in LEague # 2, think about whether or not you want to play in this league. It is labled ""Advanced"" not for skill level, but for the level of participation expected from players. If you have questions, post them here.[/size]

So, yes sir, it''s been 5 days for quite some time. I try to be accomodating but please try to get your game played within the timeframe (i.e. ""tonight or Monday night"") because 1) we need to keep this thing moving and 2) it will knock the two leagues out of sync again. Regardless, just keep me/the league aprised and we''ll decide on the extension once it''s a bit closer.

Edit for formatting to try to make it a little more compact.

Grumpicus, will you have my baby?

That reminds me Fletcher... I just sent the invite for you to take over the Giants. I think you have to fire up the Xbox to accept. Welcome to the big leagues.

Edit: Highlander, it looks like you have a game this week after all.

Highlander, I''m available maybe Saturnight, Sunday, Sunnight, Monday, Monnight and Tuesnight.

Sunday would be my first choice.

Swampy,

7Pm Thursday shouldnt be a problem as far as I know. EST right?

-Spy

Yep. See ya then, bub.

Grumpy I didn''t doubt it had been five days the entire time I just conciously thought about it because I was trying to schedule a game with Psycho and realized that if we don''t get our game in tonight then it looks like monday night is the only other night we have. For some reason I was just under the delusion that the weeks were the same as they were in the first league.

I understand the reasons for going with the five day schedule at the beginning of the league but based on the fact that many people are not getting their games played I would rather see a seven day schedule and more games get played. If no one else is with me that''s fine but considering the one league that actually was played through to completion used a seven day week and the fact that many of us are forced to try and schedule two league games a week because of the league split, I would think that maybe we need to re-evaluate some of the settings for the league and see if we can improve things.

I am available today ..as in right now.

Then M-F 7:00PM -? pac

Weekends by appt.

I understand. I have yet to not grant an extension whenever someone has told me that they would get their game played if only the deadline got pushed back a day (sometimes even two). Now admittedly, I''m more inclined to grant it to those who have been consistent participants and have made a visible effort (i.e. posted in the thread) to get their game played during the week... but so far, I''ve not denied a request. (Two examples off the top of my head are when Legion and Logan lost their cable modem and when you recently suggested we add a day for Valentine''s Day.) I''m not inclined to say ""don''t sweat the deadline"" because then people will get lazy but do your best to get your games played and if, on rare occasions, you need an extra day, let me know; chances are you''ll get it. Zer gut? Gut.

Swampy - I missed you message on ESPN - if you want to still get our game on tonight - I am well, uh - game :).

Edit Get me on Xfire I will be playing Neverwinter Nights.

Doesn''t matter to me one way or the other, but I did notice in the last two games that had weather, the lag was pretty bad.

Future reference, next league maybe shut that off (if possible)? Or do you guys want to keep it?

I don''t know, ours played pretty smooth in the rain tonight Logan but maybe my standards are lower.

I''m ok with keeping it.

No, you''re right, the rain made it sluggish, but certainly playable. I think Grump''s with me on our snow game that the lag was no less than awful.

Our game just kind of reminded me of a question I meant to ask a week or two ago.

Edit: This should have been in the GWJFL3 thread, please ignore.

I''ll be 20-30 min late on the Vikings game. If you''re not playing SpyNavy by then, I''ll try to get ahold of you. Sorry.

Hey Fletch Sunday is probably not going to be good for me. If you want to try for Saturday evening we can do that. I usually play after 9:30 central. If not this weekend, we''ll play Monay Night.

We''ll try to hook up on Sat night then maybe.

I''m really bumming that everyone seems to prefer playing after 10pm EST. Some of us have to work and stuff.

And you guys make fun of me.

Maybe you can buy some Ginsing or something, Geezy.

Yeah, come on pops, get with the program. We''re nerds, we stay up all night tanning in front of the monitor as the only source of light in the room. Ooh look, there''s enough coke cans on the floor to build a pyramid!
