OK,

for a variety of reasons, looks like we should've done this draft here.

Anyway, here's a list of issues at this moment:

I'm drafting for Gnome, Doug, tnt & Kraft

Can't log on as them and the site won't let me add "keepers" for them now that the draft has started.

I will post the players I'm picking for them here as we go - please check back regularly. I'll also post it on the chat on nab.com

Also, I screwed up and protected TT, not KT for Tom & it won't let me change that.

Kurt Thomas is NOT available.

Tim Thomas SHOULD be but isn't.

Oh, joy, he was in my top 10 guys

Oh, someone will pick him.

And since I'm supposed to be picking for 5 people and can't manually add any players right now I think we can officially declare this a disaster before we've gotten through 6 picks.

I'm completely resigned to having to rebuild teams tomorrow - and somewhat resigned to scrapping the whole thing and re-doing the draft next week on here.

OK, the fair thing is if somebody wants to draft Tim Thomas, pick Kurt Thomas and later I will trade, assuming that I have Tim.

It's gotten better. If I can figure out how to get Mourning on but that'll have to wait until post-draft.

Sorry man.

I hope everybody's OK with what I did.

I had protected Kurt Thomas but got Tim Thomas instead. I posted here and on the chat that anyone can in effect draft Tim Thomas by picking up Kurt Thomas, and I would trade ASAP.

My last spot came up and it was near where I had Tim Thomas on my list, so I drafted Kurt. Problem solved-- I have both.

Also, If anybody needs bigs I can trade one for a G.

San Antonio Cylons - SycamoreKen
St. Somewhere Big Bamboo - Doug (the RoboDoug creator)
Manila Balisongs - SuperReggie
Bad News Bears - Kerosene
Harlem Funkadelics Mr. Chill (not sure he's a member)
Gnawbone Hounddogs - PacerTom
NZ Breakers - Redbull Yamaha
Pierce County Powerhouse - Number7
Denton Dawgs - That would be me
Cedar City Raven Redux - DrBadd
West Lafayette Weebles - Kraft
Dynamite Revolutions - tnt (is that tnt09?)




Hope that's close enough - I may not have the exact Digest name for each but it should be close.

Just a small feature that I found......

If you click on the League section of the site, you can click on the link near the top of the page that says "Owners" - it will list everyone's team, owner, and e-mail address (assuming that owner allows their e-mail address to be shown...which would be helpful for trading purposes).

EDIT: Everyon'e e-mail is shown under the "League Rules" link.

Hicks

OK here's how I understand it:

Abel = London Pussies
DisplacedKnick = Denton Dawgs
Doug = St. Somewhere Big Bamboo
DrBadd01 = Cedar City Raven Redux
Hicks = New Castle Trojans
Jose Slaughter = Bangkok Banshee
kerosene = Bad News Bears
Kraft = West Lafayette Weebles
Mr. Chill = Harlem Funkadelics
NumberSeven = Pierce County Powerhouse
pacertom = Gnawbone Hounddogs
Peck = Gotham City Knights
rcarey = Canadian Courage
Redbull Yamaha = NZ Breakers
Roaming Gnome = Roaming Gnome's Fury
Skaut_Ech = Cleveland Steamers
Super Reggie = Manila Balisongs
SycamoreKen = San Antonio Cylons
tnt09 = Dynamite Revolutions

This is the only one I'm not seeing. There's no "Redbull" listed as having ABA forum permissions, nor is there a Redbull listed on the members list. Who is he?

tnt09
10-21-2006, 02:07 PM
Dynamite Revolutions = tnt09 (same PD name as owner name in NBA)

Displaced Knick

I have a roster question.

Perkins is listed as a FC but when I try to adjust my lineup it will only allow me to play him as a C or as a bench player. When I try to set a line up with Perkins, Gadzuric & Swift it tells me O have too many centers.

Can this be changed so I can have the option to play him as a F.

Well, I just finished at the I's for changing positions back to where I set them last week.

However in Perkins' case he was listed as a straight C in the KL last year. To get him changed so you can use him at forward will take a vote.

I noticed that last night or this morning for some people, I thought it was rather funny when he said something about a pick you made...

Shade
10-21-2006, 07:27 PM
So, only one pick has actually been made so far? I'm a little lost.

You're in the wrong thread - we're finished.

The other league's only made 1 pick.

GO!!!!!
10-21-2006, 07:41 PM
and it's a twenty four hour pick rotation if i'm not wrong, so there will be a pick at the maximun every twenty four hours which means the whole draft could last untill the playoffs really, but i doubt that will happen..

Yeah, seemed especially funny to me to think that Peck would call a team of his "Gotham City Knights" when I'm pretty sure that Peck is a Marvel guy, not DC, IIRC. :shrug:

Hicks
10-22-2006, 09:02 AM
Yeah, I forgot Marvel was Peck's favorite.

GO!, if I recall correctly, it's not that we each have 24 hours per pick, but 24 hours total for the entire draft. Meaning if I take 4 hours to make my first pick when I'm up, I have 20 hours banked away for the next 11 rounds.

Thanks for taking the picks for me DK. I like Haslem and Thomas as my picks. Am not too happy about Sheldon Williams, but ok, I'm happy you picked for me, I would have been left empty-handed otherwise.

First time ever I couldn't get into a draft. Let's try to find out why I couldn't get in. I'll reply to your PM very soon.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

The site auto-picked Williams for you - I was shooting for Tyrus Thomas but time ran out while we were in the middle of PM'ing each other.

I can think of a couple of ways to get you in but those include deleting your team, making it a public league temporarily, etc. I'd rather e-mail the NBA people and see what they think is the way to go with it.
