    Default The ABA draft will be delayed

    With any luck the Sports.ws site will be opening up for the 08-09 season within a couple of weeks. I'd like to let everyone know where we are, as of now.

    I'm trying to bring back the most active owners from last year. A few of the guys I wanted back have decided to step away for the coming year. I've also sent out some PM's to former owners who were always active in the league, to gage their interest on returning. Bottom line is, we should have an entire league of active, veteran owners for this season. The league size is all that is in doubt. It could be 20, 22 or 24.

    Ya all know I love list, so here's the 3 that I have.

    Returning for another season

    1 Avoiding the Clowns
    2 Belisimo
    3 Bnd45
    4 Boombaby 33
    5 Bulldog
    6 Burnzone
    7 Displaced Knick
    8 Dr. Badd
    9 Gyron
    10 Jay Redd
    11 Jose Slaughter
    12 Kereosene
    13 Kraft
    14 Lone Granger
    15 Los Angeles
    16 Magic Rat
    17 Pacer Tom
    18 Pig Nash
    19 Shade
    20 Skaut Ech

    Owners I have yet to hear from

    1 Boston Connection
    2 Indy
    3 rm1369
    4 Roaming Gnome

    Non Returing Owners

    Able
    Diamond Dave
    Diamond Dave00
    Hicks
    Naptown Menace
    Rcarey - Sweabs
    Newman8r

    Kraft has re-joined the ABA, giving us 20 teams.

    From here on out I can only add 2 teams at a time.

    Theres still plenty of room & plenty of time. We can still go upto 22 or even 24.

    You guys are all vets at this so theres not a lot I need to explain.

    Once the site opens up, I'll set up the league & let everyone know the league # & password.

    After everyone has signed up I'll need to put the vote up to expand the powers of the commish.

    After that has been approved, we can start the draft.

    We will be using a 12 hour draft clock this time.

    Like I said before, we all know how this works, a 12 hour draft clock is more than enough time to check in 2 or maybe 3 times a day & update your contingency list.

    Sorry you'll miss the season but its far better to know in August than in October.

    There will be a place for you in seasons to come.

    I'd also like to give a very warm welcome back to former league champion, Pacer Tom.

    Our league still has 20 teams.

    I'll attempt to stay above the fray as 19 other teams fight for second place.

    I'm not gonna be able to play this year. I wasn't able to give my team the attention I'd like last year. Maybe some time in the future.

    And I don't blaim you one bit.

    I really dropped the ball with the fan fare when I posted the updated onwers list.

    Gentlemen, one of the founding members of our league & former champion Displaced Knick has returned to once again keep me from the championship.

    We now have 4 owners that have won the coveted ABA Championship Trophy:

    Displaced Knick
    Skaut Ech
    Pacer Tom
    Magic Rat

    We're still at 20 owners but the news of the day is we will not have a 24 team league this coming season.

    I could switch you & Pacer Tom. That way we'd have a former champion in each division. But, then you'd be in the same conference as Jay.

    I could flip you over to the Western Conference for just about anyone. But, then you'd still be in the same league as Jay.

    Our only option is to drop ya from the league..... sorry

    I think I'll just count my blessings and thank the good lord that I don't share a division with Shade.

    I've sent him several PM's.

    The last time I heard from him was early July, he hasn't logged on since July 5th. He said then that he would get back to me before August.

    I also tried to get Roaming Gnome back too.

    The doors not closed yet, we could still bring in 2 more teams.... if they would ever answer their PM's

    You havn't missed anything yet.

    The league isn't even full!

    I was hoping to start the draft tomorrow but I'm doubting that's going to happen.

    It doesn't have to be Saturday. As a matter of fact, it won't be.

    We still need to have guys sign up, so the draft will be posponed until the league is full.

    sorry... I did such a fine job writting this post for the IKL, I just had to share it with my ABA brothers.

    The league is still waiting for a few more owners to sign up.

    The draft will be delayed until after the league is full. Like, duh! can't have a draft without a full league.

    Anyway, we'll get the rest of the guys signed up & then I'll send PM's to everyone & post a new thread.

    You'll have at least 48 hours notice, so check your PM's & keep checking our fantasy board.
