    I fired off some PMs to those who expressed interest but haven't declared for either draft yet.

    Being the commish I should be in both leagues :p
    Once we're set I'll create the new league and delete the other teams so they can move over.

    It's to bad there can't be a Superbowl between the winners of each league.

    If any of their players make it to the playoffs we can keep track ourselves. :p

    Trimaj hasn't read his PM yet, I believe he's the only participant we are waiting on.

    Okay. Live draft is full.
    I'll PM and post details later.
    Hoping trim wakes up and goes into board draft for 9 teams meaning we need one more for 10.

    It gets too crowded with that many. I think we did 16 one year and it was like KGJNSREIUBGJSNERGNSEIRBIUNERBKNAEOIGNOISER.

    Well, if your friend couldn't be bothered to take 15 seconds to set up an account here, why should accommodations be made for him/her?

    That's all the people that have expressed interest at any point now signed up.

    Somebody double up in to the board draft or find someone else to play and we are good. :D

    Why don't you play, Mr. Mod? A board draft would work out better for you, and we needs more people!!!

    I do not and will not play fantasy football. I waste enough time here as it is. Besides I can't be bothered researching backup RBs for the Browns or which defense will score the most INTs in the 4th quarter for double points or whatever. :p

    Well, it's not much of an accommodation. It's just a link. Plus you get a package deal because THE YAK would sign up as well. ::cheers::

    And 14 is not that much.

    Making the new leagues now. Stay tuned. Someone interested in board draft please speak up now.

    EDIT: Wait a tick. Gersh is missing. Okay. He's our last and final board draft team.

    It's a BOARD league. Not a "whoever wants to sign up, sign up!" league. If your friend wants to do that, then Yahoo! has plenty of leagues that anyone can join. ::cheers::

    and 14 is too much for a fantasy league. I am assuming you are a n00b when it comes to fantasy playing.

    All right. Enough of that. Don't make me play junior mod.
    Everyone should have received a PM from me explaining your league situation. If you haven't no worries. You're fine just the way you are.

    With only ten teams in the board draft I think waiting to start until this Monday, August 15, 12Noon Eastern time should be fine.
    We'll decide when to end it for free agency as it goes along.
    You will have 24 hours to make a pick. Please do not use all of the time. If your time expires you will be passed over. Once you return you can make your pick at any time. But subsequent pick time will be reduced by half. Your new penalty time will be 12 hours for the remainder of the draft. Later rounds of the draft will also be changed to 12 hours. We'll decide later when it will switch.

    Here is our draft order. No whining. This was random. Well you can whine if you want. We'll just laugh at you.

    Round#1
    1. Wook
    2. Tee
    3. EB
    4. Eethy(me)
    5. gersh
    6. strife
    7. asg
    8. helmet
    9. trim
    10. whiteeagle

    and reverse in round 2. So while we may laugh at whiteeagle for picking last, it's probably a blessing in disguise since he gets to pick two in a row.

    Good luck all.
