FF2011: Official GWJFFL (non-keeper) signup and discussion thread

Just checking in...

<br /> Your Events<br /> Created Name Results<br /> Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFLK Draft 2011 6 so far<br /> Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL1 Draft 2011 8 so far<br /> Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL2 Draft 2011 6 so far<br /> Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL3 Draft 2011 8 so far<br />

Even with the expanded dates, 2 and 3 already have no times that are good for everyone. Please review your selections and edit them (not submit new ones, please) if you have any wiggle-room in your schedule.

In particular, I'm seeing a few folks who seem to be flexible on date but have a fairly firm time that is the earliest or latest (depending on the person) they are willing to start. Remember that, in most case, we have people on both coasts and 8pm Eastern is still only 5pm Pacific.

Historically, our drafts have started at 8pm (or 8:30) Central to attempt to accommodate this situation (doesn't start too early for the West Coast or end too late for the East) so if you don't have that box marked on your grid for a particular day, please think about it.

All the leagues are impressively neck-in-neck.

...though 3 does have a slight lead.

Of course, they don't have a single slot with less than 2 dots in it. (Dots indicate how many people don't like a certain slot.)

MORE DOTS!!!! (NSFW, language)

Apparently, a person or two added new schedules instead of updating their previous ones so my numbers were a bit optimistic. These should be more accurate.

Amusingly, Rabbit and Zacny (currently) have mutually exclusive schedules.

Who is the holdout in FFL3? Drag them through the mud!

Updated FFL3 page, but don't have the link for FFLK. You can assume K should be same as 3 now.

GWJFFLK wins the race! Everyone else is almost there; waiting on one more in each. At this point, though, I _will_ name names...

GWJFFL1: LeapingGnome
GWJFFL2: Bill Bonney
GWJFFL3: Indiana0210

Go! Fly! Harass them into voting.

Given that there's a possibility that somebody might be drafting on Monday (though I'm going to try to avoid it if there's an equally-viable alternative), I'm setting the deadline at "some time tomorrow night."

I put my times in. Sorry for the delay, I was out of town for the week.

My other league's autodraft went through last night... gosh I hate it more and more every year.

Somehow I ended up with 5 49ers. Frank Gore and Vernon Davis I'm cool with. I moved them up a bit in the rankings even. Also David Akers I don't mind since he's from Louisville. But after getting Davis, I wouldn't have personally drafted 2 more WRs... somehow I got both Braylon Edwards and Crabtree. Don't think I even adjusted either of them up or down from the default rankings. Just random luck of ESPN.

They keep adding all of these extra specifications to the autodraft, like a min/max on positions, or what positions to draft in a round ( like taking a defense before round 17 and getting stuck with the Chiefs ), to keep things from getting too screwed up. But they really need a "team cap" option, like don't draft more than 3 players from the same team. Really makes the bye weeks a pain, and usually having multiple receivers on the same team is not a good idea.

Oh well. Looking forward to live draft. Come on Indiana, let's get FFL3 scheduled.

Heads up, GWJFFL1, your draft is going to be either Tuesday or Wednesday at 9pm Central.

uhm I did. I said saturdays and this coming monday anytime

You should have gotten an email from Fleaflicker with a link to http://whenisgood.net/2011GWJFFL3. Did you post your times? If you did, it didn't take. Could you please post them again? Thanks.

I'm on vacation this week with crap satellite Internet, so it's nearly a certainty that I'm autodraft unless it's next weekend for 3. I'm fine with that. Don't want to hold things up.

GWJFFL1 will draft on Tuesday, 8/30 at 9:00 pm Central
GWJFFL2 will draft on Wednesday, 8/31 at 8:30 pm Central
GWJFFLK will draft on Thursday, 9/1 at 9:00 pm Central
GWJFFL3 will draft on either 9/6 or 9/7.

Noted. Thanks again, Grumpicus.

Woot! I'll be able to do it live!

Not sure I will be able to participate in more than the first few rounds. Will have to auto the rest and hope for the best.

Aaaand of course my mother-in-law is now flying in on Tuesday evening. Hopefully I'll be able to draft while babysitting two little kids.

I look forward to the next Bay Area S&T when we can all compare GWJFFL notes. Only time football's ever come up at S&T's has been people asking me what's up with boogle.

Well, got called to a side-job client after hours meeting tomorrow night. Hopefully I will be back in time for the draft.

4 those sincerely concerned, I'm doing ok & plan 2 B back by opening day. 4 those worried abt your fantasy team, u ppl are sick

I'll definitely be late to the draft, since I work until 7 PST (the time the draft starts). Luckily, the important part of the draft is the late rounds, so I'll be there hopefully in time to botch those myself. (Hint: don't expect Peterson to fall to you)

Someone just talked himself out of the #1 overall pick in GWJFFL 2.

Is there a link for the GWJ Ventrilo server somewhere? I'm familiar with Vent but haven't used it with GWJ yet.

GWJFFL1 knocks it out in 1 hour, 50 minutes.

Results.
