    Maybe I'm not remembering this too well, but I thought we had 2 RB and 3 WR with a TE last year. I know FFZ had 2 RB, 2 WR, a TE and a WR/RB position. Shall we consider a WR/RB in addition to the standard 2 RB, 2 WR, and TE? I know that gives us 1 more scoring position than you'd find on the field but what the hell...
    Seems like both leagues had an extra position last year...

    Yeah, but I realized something. 2 RB, 3 WR, and 1 TE (with 1 QB, of course) results in 12 players on the field . There has to be 5 OL in a real NFL game, and I wanted it get as close to a real Pro-Style with positions. This ain't the Canadian league .

    Though I guess we could have 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR, 1 WR/TE.

    Lol, no offense, but might as well go with 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and 1 RB/WR. If there is a discrepancy in weight we've given the positions, creating more variablility would end up letting people take advantage of that. For example, if WR's are too valuable and someone can mathematically figure that out they can go with 4 WR's while the rest of us are screwing around with the more standard 2 RBs, 2 WRs, TE and an extra RB or WR...

    I think the 1 pt per 10 rushing yards will ensure RB's have plenty of value compared to WR's but why let people opt out of TE's? Oh well, I'd rather go with 2 RB, 2WR and a TE than eliminate the requirement for a TE. But I'd also rather go with 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and 1 WR/RB

    Or we can go with what we had last year, 2 RB, 3 WR, and a TE. That seemed to work out okay and it'll make sure no one can field 3 RB's in case we've over-valued them... Or we can go with what you have set up already. Just wanted to call your attention to the change from last year in case that was unintentional and see what others preferred...

    I prefer TE over WR/TE. A swing position in the starting lineup de-levels the playing field.

    Assuming we have a legit TE, seems like the question is really 2-ea. RB/WR vs. 3 WR - 1 RB.

    I'm a traditionalist, but today's reality is that 1-back sets are more common. The downside of a single RB, though, is that there aren't that many true "load" backs anymore -- more RB by committee except for the few teams with All Pros at the position.

    As the new guy, that's tough for me to gauge... As long as we keep the TE, I'll be happy.

    Kalius, you mean 6 scorers (aside from K of course)? QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE?

    Either way will work 4 me

    Bumping for my own convenience

    Oh no wait, I do have a question...

    Exactly how does the draft work? If we're doing this Monday (during work hours), I need to know things like:

    --draft order (presuming alternate-reverse order rounds?)
    --time limit before BAPAY
    --whether bench is position-specific or as-you-wish
    --(obviously) confirmation of team confirmation per discussion above

    I've got a large dose of RL happening now, and time grows short -- so a specific post from the commish would be appreciated.

    just asking that question means all your picks will be BAPAY

    We draft throughout the day, i.e. the draft clock keeps ticking.

    If we're doing this Monday (during work hours), I need to know things like:

    --draft order (presuming alternate-reverse order rounds?)
    --time limit before BAPAY
    --whether bench is position-specific or as-you-wish
    --(obviously) confirmation of team confirmation per discussion above

    I've got a large dose of RL happening now, and time grows short -- so a specific post from the commish would be appreciated.

    1) Draft will be determined at random, and will snake.
    2) Normally, twenty-four hours.
    3) Free choice.
    4) What do you mean?

    If you're of missing a round/pick, send in a list.`

    --draft order (presuming alternate-reverse order rounds?)


    We should be getting to that. Kalius is suggesting his random function on his calculator. I have done the names in a bag pulled out at random before. Any other suggestions? We can put two levels in... one person can assign numbers at random to each team and then give Kalius just those numbers and then Kalius posts the numbers and then the other person gives what teams they correspond to (of course that person will send which teams = which numbers to me beforehand ).

    --time limit before BAPAY


    24 hours

    --whether bench is position-specific or as-you-wish


    As-you-wish

    --(obviously) confirmation of team confirmation per discussion above


    I think I'll go for a tradtional PRO offense:

    QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE

    I guess people aren't too fond of having a swing position giving the option to play 3 WR with 1 RB.

    And we'll start something on Monday. Whether it is setting the draft order or what.

    Sorry Imram -- I was in fact referring to team composition, as you surmised.

    Traditional NFL 2-RB, 2-WR 1-TE, 1-QB, plus a kick, a team defense, and 6 bench players of whatever denomination I damned well feel like.

    I'm feeling reasonably well-informed -- except for the draft order. Thanx!

    Well I was suggesting a second layer of secrecy in case some idiots think that the process wouldn't be fair.

    It really doesn't matter what number the team is, so long as it has a number. The number is just a substitute for a name

    HEY!!!!

    I had the last pick in the first round last year, so I must be the idiot you refer to.

    However, having 2 picks back to back was nice, so I won't complain (much) if I am last again.



    ACK!

    Go to the Yahoo site, where the teams are listed in this order:

    - Billy's Boingers (Tuberski)
    - Sarlat (Kalius)
    - Cute Little Bunnies (-Jrabbit)
    - Flippin' Monkey Men (Japher)
    - Vegas Skullsmashers (Dissident)
    - Berzerkers (Berzerker)
    - Dallas Dwarf Tossers (SlowwHand)
    - Kyrandia Dragonhawks (reismark)
    - Ramsey's Razorbacks (gjramsey)
    - Fighting Emus (Jac de Molay)
    - Amsterdam Afros (Zopperoni)
    - Georgia Gliders (Imram Siddiqui)

    Have two people generate random number lists (1-12). Preferably, Poly people who don't participate in the league.

    Use the first number list to (randomly) re-order this list 1-12.
    Use the 2nd number list to assign the draft order. to that re-ordered list.

    Obviously, this can be done in a single iteration. The 2nd randomization would be used to minimize people declaring it fixed.

    As for me, I don't really care where I pick, as long as I know a couple days in advance so I can feel prepared.

    If we're really starting Monday, we need to get it together.

    (A list of Poly names alongside team names would also be nice. I made a start, above.)

    If we're really starting Monday, we need to get it together.


    Well we're starting the draft ordering. I think we'll make the first pick start at 12:01 AM on Tuesday. I also think I got a person to help with the reordering of numbers (1st person). Kalius can do a simple the randomize from the numbers 1-12. Just PM the randomization to someone else in the league (any volunteers who'll be around most of Monday)? And I'll PM the random list I get (which will say which team = which number).

    Then the one who is PMed can post both lists and the final draft order.
    I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

    You can PM the rando lists to me if you like.

    Kalius' will re-order the list from the post above.
    Imram's will assign 1st-round draft order to the resulting list.

    I typically have a Poly window open from 7am - 5pm every weekday. Weekends are spotty (dialup) but I'll check PMs so we can get this posted earlier if possible.

    Ready, set -- RANDOMIZE!!

    Ok... to be clear Kalius should send you a list with numbers, ie:

    1. 8
    2. 12
    3. 4

    I'll send you a list with names to numbers, ie:

    8. XXXX
    9. ZZZ
    12. YYYY

    Combining them together results in the draft order:

    1. XXXX
    2. YYYYY
    etc.
    I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
