    First, the bad news. My computer finally bit the dust for good. Won't have a replacement any time soon. So creating new leagues, changing league players, etc. is not something I'm capable of doing inside a phone app. The best I can do is restart old leagues.

    Which brings me to the good news. I've restarted both leagues from last year. If you were a member of one or both, you still are. Check your league to make sure. Drafts will be live on Saturday, September 1st at 1:00 and 2:30 PM EST.

    I hope we don't get many (or any) ghost teams. But it is what it is. In the meantime, if anyone else wishes to serve as a commissioner and form a new league on this board, step right up. You have my support and I'll even join. ;)

    Figures, was going to join this year :lolol:

    I can't be commissioner of a league though, Summer is busy season for me.

    If anyone else starts one up though, I'm in.

    Whoever puts a league together, if you have a spot open count me in.

    I would also be happy to put a league together if need be.

    Hope to see some of you in the draft in 15 mins or so. I've got the 12th pick so back to back picks when all is said and done.

    That first draft just flew by so fast. That and picking 11th just threw any strategy or the window. I was drafting by reaction rather than plan. No idea how to feel about my team.

    Second draft had a slower pace. I feel ok about my starters, but not so confident with my depth.

    I went on a camping trip with my kids (my daughter caught a huge bass!), and didn't get back in time for the draft. I'm scared to look, but I promise, no matter how ****ty it is, I'll eat my bowl of **** all season long and won't complain. :)

    I had last pick so dbl dipped with Rodgers in the first and Jimmy Graham in the second. My RB''s leave a lot to be desired but I got Brees as a back up, outlaw, Steelers and Vikes D, and Rams kicker. Mr. Irrelevant was James Washington. I drafted him on a whim

    I just saw an email that my draft for this league was at 1pm today. I didn’t sign up for ffb this year.

    Ray's laptop took a dump on him so he couldn't wipe the leagues and start over this year. So if you were in last year it just kept everyone. So yeah it probably autodrafted for you this afternoon. The first league drafed at 12 central time and was done before 12:20 with all the autodrafting

    I'm sure your starting team will be ok. Usually it is with auto picking. It's your subs where you can find trouble.

    Ugh, I'll be looking for a new league to join next season, I'll have 1 to 4 people I can bring with me, definitely 2.

    2nd year in a row the commish pulled off a bs trade, there's no committee and the league is mostly made up of his buddies, except for the 4 people I referenced.

    Tonight he acquired Hopkins for Ridley. No other players. I tired to pry him away for Diggs and Ingram and he didn't bite but gives him up for Ridley. Ridiculous.

    That is BS, I run a league and it is all friends and coworkers and that keeps people honest. If someone makes a "bad" trade they get called out.

    Few of us did call him out but he just ignored it. So we're leaving after this season. Me and another guy saved the league this year by bringing people in and he pulls this ****. Good job, now your league will fold next season.

    Earlier in the year on game day, he needed a TE, he made his daughter drop one of her TE's and he picked him up and put him in the line up. Supposed to be 24 hour wait period just so that kid of crap doesn't happen. Fortunately it didn't help him win.

    But now he has Hopkins and all he gave up was Ridley. Told him he should give up another player if he won't veto it. At least make it more balanced.

    He's military, some of his buddies are special ops out of macdill in Tampa, lol.

    My friend that got me into that league is his neighbor, said there are enough guns on his block to start their own war.

    I'll just go join a new league :lolol:
