    Default IKL Draft will be Saturday Sept. 13th at 9AM

    I'll start the draft around 9 o'clock Saturday morning.

    Since the draft order will be determined by the computer at the start of the draft there is no way of knowing who will draft when, until that time.

    Since that is the case... Please make an effort to be on the Sports.ws site at that time, incase you have an early draft pick

    Also.... we will be using a 24 hour draft clock

    This means when the person just ahead of you in the draft order, makes his selection, you will have up to 24 hours to make your pick.

    I know we have about 6 weeks to complete the draft but please try to be ready as your selection is nearing. There will be many that will become board & frustrated with those that tend to take too long to make a pick.

    Finally, I will be on line as much as possible during the draft, both here as well as the Sports.ws site. If you need help with something or have a question, please send me a PM or post it on the trash talk board.

    Thanks

    This is the lineup with conference/division names. Since we are an International league I named the divisions after 4 of the Earths oceans.

    I can change them if you can come up with anything.

    Eastern Conference

    Southern


    Adam 1987
    Avoiding the Clowns
    Burnzone
    Indricity
    Lone Granger 33

    Indian

    Aesop Rock On
    Belisimo
    Displaced Knick
    Intridcold

    West

    Atlantic


    Frost Wolf
    Jay Redd
    Magic Rat
    Newman8r
    Panhandles

    Pacific

    Bulldog
    Jose Slaughter
    Soup is Good

    Right now the playoff format will be the 2 division winners plus the next 2 best teams per conference.

    Thats 8 of the 18 teams making the playoffs.

    We'll have a 3 round playoff for a total of 21 playoff games, 7 per round.

    That means the season will be 61 games long.

    We can change the playoffs if you want to add more teams.

    Thoughts?

    I am good with a setup like that. Not too long would be best. Seems like 8 teams is enough to make playoffs, unless I dont make the playoffs then we will need to add more.

    If I am not online right at 9:00AM and I have the first pick I apologize. I will be sleeping until about 2:00PMish but I will make sure I go online at that time. This weekend is a little busy but during the week I will check the site multiple times throughout the day.

    Thanks for all the hard work Jose

    Playoff format, and season length sound good, and I like your division names as well.

    And thank you for the many hours of work you put into these every year James, it is much appreciated.

    sounds alright

    just to clarify - what is the time zone difference between the Eastern time and Indy time? cause its 6 hours difference for me with NY...is it 30 minutes or 1 hour difference?

    Is the scoring on the league site what we'll be going with this season? If so, I need to take another look at my rankings.

    I'll go check it right now, I thought it was the same for all three leagues.

    I mean, it will be.

    EDIT: Fixed, both the ABA & IKL had been changed. They have been changed back to their correct numbers.

    I will double check them just prior to starting the draft to make sure they remain correct.

    Thanks for the catch DK

    Da nada - didn't know if we were going with the dreaded efficiency scoring or not. I prefer rewarding ballhogs myself.
