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. :lol:

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

:lol: It's an online live draft, guys. I wouldn't request anyone to be physically present -- just don't have a computer that sucks. ;)

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.

We shall see my friend. :sly: I won my league last year. And was runner-up the year before. But the year before that I was a number 1 seed the whole season, then got beat in the first round of the playoffs, lol. The year before that, I was runner -up again. I sorta forgot what happened any years before that.

But really, I love the competition. I want everyone to be really into this league. I want everyone to take it seriously. I want it to be as challenging as it can get. That's what I love about fantasy football. I play fantasy hockey, fantasy baseball, and fantasy basketball also. And from year to year, the fantasy football leagues, are the most competitive and taken most seriously than any of the others I play from year to year. And for me, that makes it the most fun.

Should be a fun year. Good luck to everyone in the league. You'll need it. :sly: (just messin, we gotta have some sort of smack talk)lol.

With me having dial-up, i guess it would be like a real NFL draft since i'd probably be taking 15 minutes to make a pick! Plus i get booted when somebody calls here, which would make it even more like real life since i'd be on the phones while you guys are waiting. :P

Just kidding of course, im not signing up...i couldnt really guarantee i could make the live draft anway. But i'd definitely like to do a NFL pick'em *with pointspreads*
