Discussion in 'The Bill Nunn Draft Room' started by Blast Furnace, Mar 8, 2017.
Ah, thanks, TTF, feature thread, good idea
I'll take Miami
I just wanted to say thank you to Blast and the others who are stepping in and taking the lead role in this. I'd love to keep running it but as some of you have noticed I've been scaling back my involvement the last couple years (shoot this is my first post on here in 8-10 months I think). Its to the point now where I just cannot do it the justice it deserves and I'd rather pass it along to those who can continue this fun activity than me still run it and hurt the overall game.
It will happen from time to time, I took it over from NB on the old "official" board on the Steelers site for the few years of its existence and then moved it here when we all migrated over...thats a good 6-8 years or so I think that I ran it I think...time flies, haha. Anyways maybe in the coming years I'll be able to participate in this again (even if its just running a team), but for now I officially have bowed out completely.
I do want to thank any and everyone who has helped me run the show especially in recent years with my limited involvement and to everyone who has participated in this over the years (except a few idiots, some of which I'm sure you guys will remember, haha). Its been fun!
Hopefully I'll be able to be at least a little more active on the board than the last year or so, but we'll see (either way I still try to read some of the posts from time to time)!
(this is as close to taking bow that I could find)
Thanks for the work you've put into this over the years, GP!
We'll keep it going for ya
And the torch has been passed........
the first yr. I haven't had Cleveland.................. i'll take the saints
You want them, Blackandgold? I can pull someone else. I just took them because I played Tenn. last year and someone who should not be named took them one spot ahead of me.
I'm going to veto this trade.
Knock it off McCloughan...
Wanted to extend my gratitude to all for doing this as well. Work is a little unpredictable right now or I would have volunteered.
I will take the Saints.
Right now, they belong to BlackandGoldPatrol but if he takes up Steelersrocks offer and takes Cleveland, you can have them.
I contacted him. He seems to be okay with things the way they are, so I guess I have the Browns still.
I will switch to the Packers.
Saints are available. Want them or Packers?
Wait, I thought Blackandgoldpatrol had the Saints?
Do'h! Yes, thanks for keeping on top of it
You have Cleveland
B&G - Saints
Mytake - GB
The drunken GM must be spiking my coffee.
Ready and willing when the time comes to grab a 2nd team...... just say the word
There are some names who normally play that haven't picked a team yet. I'll reach out to them but looks like we will have less players this year, some of the names haven't logged in since last year. One of them is GB_Steel. Knew he didnt post much anymore but hadn't realized it was that long. Good member, hope all is ok.
Thanks Blast fore getting this going and thanks GP for all you have done in the past. To all they other committee members and owners thank you all for your time. I love this part of the season and I long this draft on this board, I will take another team when it comes time, I will take the Bills or Eagles and if they are gone I will take whatever is left. Again id there is anything I can help with just ask I will step up.
I think we will need to open up to those wanting a second team shortly. Was hoping for more involvement on the weekend but that wasn't the case.
Some people may need to carry a 3rd team too if we don't get some more particaption.
if we do start getting 2nd teams, can everyone try to cluster them together?? May be easier to PM someone 2 picks if you are busy by the time your pick comes around. just a thought
I was actually thinking about putting this out there this year if I ran this again. Obviously not a 100% requirement but I think it would definitely help move things along.
Ive reached out to 7 members who participated last season to see if they are interested. 2 haven't logged in since last year, not expecting a reply from them but maybe the other 5 will want to if they are somehow not aware.
If none respond, few people will need to choose a 3rd team.
