    I hope I am not stepping on toes here posting this but with our season over and people still sticking around I thought it would be a good idea to say something. There are a lot of new faces here and maybe some would like to get into this. The one thing I am gonna say is last year we had a lot of empty teams and owners who didn't put the time in. I am not being disrespectful but if this gets going again and if people sign up please make sure your willing to put the time in. I have a ton of fun with this but it gets disappointing when someone gets mad and leaves. I know I look forward to this and just trying to make it a good time with no bumps in the road. This may be our only fun as Steeler fans for awhile so just thought I would bring this up. Anyone who is interested and don't know what I am talking about check out the stickies above.

    I'm in as per usual and can help with running it.

    This would be a bit of an early start than usual but I know gpguy is around less and less, so someone stepping up is always nice.

    Unlike some, I usually like to pick a different team every year. If im not ruining somebody's day I will harness my inner Mike Mayock and take the Raiders.

    I was not trying to say start early I just wanted to post something before everyone stopped posting. You know how things go in the off season it slows down a bit. Also I wanted to draw attention to this as there are a lot of new posters here and thought they might be interested, while also letting people know to be serious when signing up....:smiley1:

    I'm in as usual. I'll take the Giants like I normally do.

    I like the idea of getting this discussion rolling early. Some tips:

    1) Make sure to "watch" the draft announcement and trade threads, and choose email notifications.
    2) Make sure your email address is current: http://thesteelersfans.com/forums/account/contact-details.
    3) Don't get mad and take the ball home if you miss a pick. ;+)

    Last season the trouble was there wasn't as many GM's as there normally is. I don't recall anyone dropping out over a missed pick or anything.

    But yes, thats disruptive when it happens and as usual, it will be made clear several times before teams are selected, which TTF and NY already got the ball rolling on :thumbs up:

    We started later than normal last year too, so this is probably a good idea to get people interested beforehand. Maybe we can use this thread to discuss prospects too, keep it active and possibly push the start time up to coincide with the end of the Combine. Open to suggestions.

    Let's open this up for choosing GM's. I won't have the other thread ready until next week so lets put the GM's here for now. That usually takes a while so lets start choosing now.

    So far we got:

    Chargers @SC Gamecock
    Raiders @SteelCity_NB
    Giants @TerribleTowelFlying
    Packers @Steel_Elvis
    Jets @NY STEELERFAN
    Cotls @TuRnDoWnForWaTT

    I'll take Detroit again. I'll update this list here as people choose.

    TTF, could do your thing on the homepage to let people know we're starting. Thanks :thumbs up:

    I have had the god damn Jets the last few years so I guess I will take them unless someone else would like them I am fine with any team other then the Cheats.

    I just can't believe that there aren't 31 people on this board who don't find this time of year interesting enough to keep after it

    I can it requires a little attention and fun many would rather fight with each other over opinions. At least that's the way I feel it is getting to be around here. I love this stuff it is fun but I guess it isn't for everyone.......:drinks:

    I had a blast last year. I felt like it ran pretty smooth. Some people take longer than others to make picks, but I don't recall anyone getting mad and dropping out.

    I will take the Colts again. I'm up for a second team if there ends up being spots that need filled

    Just a FYI whoever takes the Bears I do believe they are without a 1st and 2nd rounder so they might be a good option for a 2nd team

    So, a week since the last post. I’m thinking we’re not going to have a draft this year unless we have something like 8 people with 4 teams each.

    I will take the Panthers. I work with a guy who is a Panthers fan, so I will consult him. I am willing to take a second team as well.

    The Drunk GM is in. I'll take the Bears again this year. And I'll fix the mess that is the Redskins if need be.

    I had fun doing this for a couple of years but 2 years ago it seemed all of my picks came on the weekend when I'm never on, so I wasn't selecting for whatever team I had. Didn't take a team last year for that reason.

    If you really need people to participate I can try again.
