Ok guys, I've gotten emails from some of you, but not all!

Also I think our Draft should be Saturday, September 1st at 7pm. That work/not work for anybody?

Here is whom I'm missing emails from at the moment:

-----OLD FARTS----- (mostly)

8. @cowboydann

-----WHIPPER SNAPPERS------

7. @bogie21

9. @neuropsychosocial

11. @daveinsocal

Send 'em in so I can add you to the team!

And sorry if things seem to be moving a bit slower than normal, it's just a busy season at work at the moment. Rest assured I'm on the case!

@bonoman: I'm crazy busy so I can't look for your email, that time works fine for me. Cowboydann (at) Geeemail dot com is my email. If you need any more info let me know.

@bonoman: I won't be able to participate in the draft, but I'll autodraft if possible (getting married the next day, then gone for 2 /2 weeks). Socaldave35 at geeemail doto como

vote-for1vote-against

@bogie21: Hey you're the last remaining holdout on emails! Please send an email to achtungyall @ gmail dot com

vote-for2vote-against

@bonoman: Don't think I received an e-mail from ya yet.

vote-for1vote-against

@squirrelhunter70 @bonoman Haven't gotten one either. Btw I have a wedding that day so I might have to auto draft. :(

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: I've emailed ya, but haven't seen an email back yet. Looking forward to this :)

vote-for3vote-against

Alright I sent emails out, got the last one in from Bogie...now we're all good to go! Should be setting up two leagues of 11 this coming week. Look to your inboxes for league invites (or re-activations if you're in from last year).

Time to start freshening up on your prospects!

I prefer CBSSports Draft Kits (http://fantasynews.cbssports.com/fantasyfootball/draft-kit) but some folks use other means. I don't know if I've actually looked at what ESPN has available. Ha.

@bonoman: Didn't get the email. Hlauren44 at aoldotcom

vote-for1vote-against

@slacker44: ah nevermind. I saw your direct email so I know you have the right address. Just haven't seen the invite yet. Sorry. lol

vote-for1vote-against

Yeah no worries. Invites will be coming sometime next week. Patience grasshopper!

vote-for1vote-against

Sending emails now, @woothulu ... which team where you last year?

vote-for3vote-against

Alright guys, leagues created and emails sent! Please let me know if you haven't received an invitation or anything.

Right now there are two leagues of 12 and we'll math up the championship matches of each one to determine the winner.

The two leagues are the Up Votes and the Down Votes (suck it down votes!).

If you look closely on the Down Votes, you'll notice Lauren and I are on a two man team. This is because, as I know it right now, I have to be a member of a team to be League Manage. I won't be playing, I'm just on the team so I can manage the league.

So now we really have to finalize draft dates as the time is approaching. I'm going to send emails about this since I think I have everyone's email address but @woothulu and @capguncowboy ...

Good luck!

@bonoman: Uh huh... trying to keep me out this year, eh... ? :)

Send the invite there and I'll accept it:

andys_emale@hotmail.com

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: Team 15 and 16. Are we confirmed they are actually in? I see no personal or team names yet.

vote-for1vote-against

@mfladd: Team 15 & 16?

The only person who hasn't accepted the invite in either league is @socaldave

SoCalDave accept the invite!

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: I say Team 15 & 16 as that it is how they show up under the ESPN UpVote league. I just wanted to make sure we have active players for draft day.

vote-for1vote-against

@daveinsocal: please accept the fantasy invite. @bonoman : per his last post: I won't be able to participate in the draft, but I'll autodraft if possible (getting married the next day, then gone for 2 /2 weeks). Socaldave35 at geeemail doto como. If it is too late I suppose we can pu the team on autodraft and lineup until we could find another owner. Just looking for options.

vote-for1vote-against

@mfladd: Huh not sure how I overlooked the wedding thing. Might have to pick a different team as I'm sure he's gonna be preoccupied even right after the wedding.

Also still not sure is what is up with Teams 15 & 16. We don't have over 12 teams and it shows up all well on my end.

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: Not sure, but we are now good. Both teams are showing names: Team Kolasa and Team TeenRacer6. Good luck to all in the draft (just not too much luck).

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman : Two quick questions. Is there a way for the upvotes to view the downvotes league and vice versa? ( in particular the draft )... and... What's with the bye weeks for 2 teams each week?
Just a few thoughts before my excitement goes into overdrive. Thanks.

vote-for2vote-against

@drunkcajun: Leagues should be visible to the public now.

The schedule/bye week thing is just a glitch with the ESPN system. It did that in our office draft yesterday. I reset the schedule which should've fixed the problem...might have to do it again after the draft.

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: Am I correct that this is the draft order we will be using for the Up Votes? (names have been removed to protect the innocent)

TEAM POS
Screaming Woot Monkeys 1
Hootin Wooters 2
the Holy drunkcajuns 3
Mississippi 503's 4
Zarfus Crapbags 5
No Spammers 6
Wootin-Tootin Capguncowboys 7
Team TeenRacer6 8
Team kolasa 9
Seattle BLOWHARDS 10
Aperture Test Monkies 11
Taco Neck Syndrome 12

vote-for1vote-against

@mfladd: No sorry, those are just defaults. I'll be doing a random draw today/tomorrow to determine the order. I'll probably do it via a random generator on a site or something. We can do a Google Hangout or something like that if there are trust issues! :D

Also @capguncowboy what is your email address? It's the only one I don't have I think... email me at achtungyall@gmail.com please!!!

I'll be sending out an email this afternoon about the draft picks.

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: CGC sent this msg to you on Aug. 24th: @bonoman: Uh huh... trying to keep me out this year, eh... ? :)
Send the invite there and I'll accept it:
(mod: email removed)

No trust issues with draft order. It would just be nice to know now to participate in some mock drafts.

vote-for1vote-against

@mfladd: You can sign up for mock drafts in the "draft lobby". Huge list and they are held a few times a day. Most sites have them running now. (ESPN, NFL, Yahoo, etc.)

vote-for2vote-against

@drunkcajun: I did one last night on ESPN. I never use to do them but I actually found it helpful. That is why I was wondering about our draft positions. No use doing a mock draft at position 1 if you end up actually being 11 or 12 in your league.

vote-for1vote-against

@mfladd: Geez you keep up with this better than I. Methinks you should be commish next year!

vote-for1vote-against

@bonoman: Nah. I am the guy who keeps the guy in charge in check. Plus, I like your after game write-ups!

vote-for1vote-against

last minute dropout.... anybody else want to play? Send a quick email to achtungyall@gmail.com BEFORE the 7 pm central draft (first responder gets in).

vote-for1vote-against

@agingdragqueen: do you know anyone else in woot world who would be interested in taking over a team since there was a last minute cancellation?

vote-for1vote-against
