    I will use the equation Ran#12+0.5 (IOW 0-12 + 0.5)

    This ensures we get no zeros, and that #12 has an equal chance of getting picked because rounding does not affect it (if there were no 0.5, 12 would equal only 11.5-12.0, but no it is 11.5-12.5, and 1 is 0.5 - 1.5 etc.)

    Sounds good. I'll be on the road back to Atlanta starting tomorrow. So my experiment in numbers to teams will have to wait until Sunday evening or Monday. Sorry gents. It's a long drive, it is.

    I have received the first list from Kalius, resulting in a randomized reordering of the team list from my post, above.

    Now i await a PM from Imram, which will re-re-order that list to determine the draft order.

    I also went through this thread and updated the team owner/coach list. Thanks to those who helped attach Poly handles to team names.

    Only glitch: It's still unclear who coaches the SARLAT entry.

    Imram, who's the missing coach?

    Well we get the order on Monday... the OFFICIAL start of the draft is 12:01 AM Tuesday, but the person who is number 1 on the list can make his pick earlier.

    NOT the draft order

    Here's the post Imran sent me, establishing the PRE-order of the teams -- prior to randomization.

    Fantasy Football List

    1. Sarlat
    2. Amsterdam Astros
    3. Fighting Emus
    4. Billy's Boingers
    5. Georgia Gliders
    6. Flippin' Monkey Men
    7. Ramsey's Razorbacks
    8. Vegas Skullsmashers
    9. Cute Little Bunnies
    10. Kyrandia Dragonhawks
    11. Berzerkers
    12. Dallas Dwarf Tossers

    Ok, now match the numbers here with the numbers Kalius provided you with his randomize program to figure out the draft list .
    The NEXT post will contain Kalius's randomization, and convert the above list to the first round draft order.

    8. Team 8
    9. Team 9
    10. Team 11
    11. Team 5
    12. Team 3

    That should do it

    RANDOMIZED LEAGUE DRAFT ORDER

    Thus, the first-round draft order is as follows:

    1) gjramsey = 7. Ramsey's Razorbacks
    2) Kalius = 1. Sarlat
    3) SlowwHand = 12. Dallas Dwarf Tossers
    4) Tuberski = 4. Billy's Boingers
    5) Japher = 6. Flippin' Monkey Men
    6) reismark = 10. Kyrandia Dragonhawks
    7) Zopperoni = 2. Amsterdam Afros
    8) Dissident = 8. Vegas Skullsmashers
    9) -Jrabbit = 9. Cute Little Bunnies
    10) Berzerker = 11. Berzerkers
    11) Imran Siddiqui = 5. Georgia Gliders
    12) Jac de Molay = 3. Fighting Emus

    Commissioner Siddiqui will confirm.

    As I see it, gjramsey is on the clock.

    So let's rock.

    NOW -- I need to learn your customs.
    1. Can I assume there will be an official draft thread?
    2. Is the verbal abuse thread separate, or do we just use this one?
    3. BAPAY!

    Yeah, interesting that 3 positions were stable -- 4, 8, and 9 (me).
    Also, all the even numbers appeared consecustively (picks 3 - 8).
    Weird, but you could pick out oddities in almost any given list.

    I can confirm I got Kalius' PM about 24 hours prior to Imran's.
    Kalius drafts 2nd, Imran 11th.

    Seems random enough to me...

    Fookin' A, I'm 11th! Dammit .

    Can I assume there will be an official draft thread?


    Yes... soon .

    And I'm sure we can verbal abuse in the other thread as well .
