Matt, if you ever decide to do another league with an online draft, I'll be in for sure. I love Fantasy Football.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Well son of a b***h, I was actually going to take the bait and get involved in my first fantasy football experience, but my birthday is on the 31st so I'm going to be out and about that evening in all likelihood. laugh.gif

Friday is probably hard for alot of people, three-day weekend with Labor Day, alot of people are driving north or out-of-town. I think I can swing it before I head to Kalamazoo.

*Confused*

What do you mean by the "No go on this one" with a "?" I obviously can't make a live draft since I live in Green Bay, but I am 100% in if the draft is online.

I would think it is safe to assume it is a live ONLINE draft as opposed to a computer automated one.

Also, Matt didn't list a location (how else would anyone know if they could make it otherwise?)

But, we'll see.

The term 'Live Draft' refers to everyone logging on to the Draft page as the draft is about to occur. Then everyone picks their teams in the allotted time.

It's not a person to person thing. It's Live because everyone is logged in at the same time.

I hope that helpls

no no if anyone has played before he just means its an online live draft. its not an auto pick where you don't have to be online. although a live draft you don't have to be online..the computer will just pick for you the best player that is left untill you fill all of you spots

laugh.gif It's an online live draft, guys. I wouldn't request anyone to be physically present -- just don't have a computer that sucks. wink.gif

As long as you can be online and can access the league's Yahoo page on the 31st at 8pm ET, you're good to go.

NFM -- It's just like the fantasy hockey draft, yet for football.
