    Default ATTENTION ALL KEEPER LEAGUE OWNERS!!!

    Normally I hate all caps (and I'm sure the mods do too - with reason) but this is important. Essential actually.

    I've just sent out an e-mail to the Keeper League. I'll post it here:

    Dear KL Owners,

    It's time to think about Draft Day 2007. We've always done a one-day draft and with just 3 rounds I think we should go with that again. Please let me know what your preference is for draft day.

    This year's draft will be run a bit different from past years. As many of you know, able has been working on putting together a fantasy league site that has the same scoring system as sports.ws did, complete with the head-to-head game system. It won't have all the bells and whistles and there will be some things we'll probably have to do manually, like change rosters after trades, but it will be that system.

    The "trash talk" (at least from what I know) will be on PacersDigest. If you aren't a PD member, go to http://www.pacersdigest.com and sign up. You'll need to post a welcome message on the Welcome forum. Also let me know you're a new member so I can tell able and Hicks and they can register you for the fantasy league forum which has restricted access.

    We will do our draft live on a PD draft thread, similar to how we did the Expansion Draft last year, but with 20 teams.

    The NBA season begins on Tuesday, October 30 so obviously we need to have finished the draft by then.

    Please reply to this message by indicating your preference for draft day and time - rank the choices 1-3. I'm looking at an 8 a.m. start time - all times US Eastern. We're usually done by Noon. Also, please let me know if there's a day you absolutely CAN'T make it.

    _____ Saturday, October 13

    _____ Saturday, October 20

    _____ Saturday, October 27

    I've attached the 12-man summer rosters. I don't have positions listed - we'll figure that out a bit later and it may be that whatever site able ends up using for players will assign them. I'm also including the draft order below.

    Basically, I'll ask everyone to get their 9-man protected list to me a few days before whenever we draft. And of course if you've decided you can't participate this year please, please, PLEASE let me know ASAP so I can get to work filling that spot.

    Thanks everyone - I'm looking forward to this. I'm sure there will be some struggles with a new site but it should be a lot of fun.

    Curt

    2007 KL Draft Order

    1. New Castle
    2. Amsterdam
    3. West Lafayette
    4. Burnzone
    5. London
    6. Cedar City
    7. Gotham City

    12. St. Somewhere
    13. Harlem (from New Zealand in the Bynum-Dunleavy trade)
    14. Bad News
    15. Bangkok

    17. Dynamite
    18. Roaming Gnome
    19. San Antonio
    20. Denton

    The draft order will hold for rds 2 and 3 except NZ will pick 13 and Cleveland will pick 16 in those rds.
    If you prefer, feel free to respond on this thread or by sending me a PM with your draft preference instead of e-mail. Thanks everyone - especially able who's gonna end up as Fantasy League Hero of the Year.

    Either would be fine by me (and probably the 27th but I'm not as sure).

    If it helps, put 13 as choice 1a and 20 as choice 1b.

    the 27th won't work for me (camping trip).

    The others are equally OK

    13th I don't think I have anything on my calendar yet this day.

    I probably can't make the 20th and definately can't the 27th. I am moving that day.

    Of course, I don't think I've been at a draft since the first one so why start now?

    I'm still waiting for responses from 8 owners - and since October 13, if not in the lead is at least close to it, I'd like to get them ASAP please.
