    It figures that the two players on my contingency list were the last two taken before my pick.

    Scott got Turiaf right before me too.

    I guess that means that my 4th & 5th round screw ups were just a short term brain freeze.

    At least I knew I had the wrong guys at the top of my list, I just couldn't get it fixed in time.

    Oh well, they were both over .9 FPPM last season.

    I'm gone from now through Wednesday. Should have wi-fi at the hotel though. I have 2 players on my contingency list. Hopefully that'll get my next selection but if not it seems like it's OK to log on when you're due to pick 2-3 spots ahead and not make enough of a CL to cover your selection so things get held up 8-10 hours. I can meet that standard even in St. Louis.

    LOL, I'm glad YOU said it. I've been filling my entire contingency list (25-30 deep, if needed) after each pick and hadn't quite figured out why so many other don't do the same and keep this things going.

    Tell ya what, just for you, if you'll give me your password, I'll log in for you and give you a pick you so richly deserve.

    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    I hope Scola drops a million points on every person who voted "no" to his position change.

    Haters.

    Yeah, my top 9 fortunately cover all my minutes at every position and come close to covering an injury for any one player at any position if I set it right.

    Ideally in my last 3 picks I would get backups from all positions to cover the "two guys out that paly the same position probem", but at this point I figure minor trades can balance it for me if necessary and I'll line up "best player available" 30 at a time.

    In the past when I have left the best player available strategy rule, my drafts have been better. We'll see.

    You're all heart Scott - believe I can handle it though.

    and the award for most ridiculous delay in the draft goes to ...

    WHEATON.

    He picks one person and leaves the site without realizing that everyone else between his 2 picks had a list. Now we all have to wait another day for him to get back on and realize its been his turn since one second after his last pick.

    A simple and understandable mistake...and one I will mention as often as possible throughout the season.

    I just sent him an e-mail & a PM.

    However I think your right, he may not be back until tomorrow.

    Speaking of Wednesday, I will be gone most of the day... going to the Fairgrounds in the morning & should be there most of the day.

    Well hell, I'm a busy guy! I had someone else make my first pick actually, which is why I wasn't there to realize what happened. I came down and it said picked on contigency about 44 times. At least I checked again.

    Yes, I got HEAD! (Luther Head of course)

    I don't know if it was a wise pick, but at least I can say "I got HEAD!"

    It's all good, LG. Just ribbing you a little!
