    We're still waiting on two more owners to show up. I've emailed with LA and he promises he'll sign on the first opportunity he gets. Major, major, work issues.

    Soupisgood, on the other hand *ahem* has been emailed and PM'ed with no response. He's been posting away on here, but I guess he can't be bothered with helping his fellow team owners get the league set up.

    There. I publically called ya out, Soup!! Better step up to the plate.

    I have three potential team owners who've had to wait far longer than they should have. They don't even have teams yet and the cutoff for 9 man rosters is today. "Hi, here's your team. You have two hours to cut three players. And, oh yeah, our draft is in 72 hours."

    *sigh*
    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?

    Sent out emails to the three owners with their new teams an hour ago. I'll send out a group email later this evening. I'm working on one hour sleep since 6 a.m. yesterday and still have to finish my shift today, so I'll update everyone in a group email soon as I can.

    You got a reprieve, Soup! I contacted the guy taking over your team in time and told him you were back in the fold and he wouldn't be needed.

    So, we are now up to our full 20 teams and are good to go. Finally. I'm sending out a league letter as soon as I can get it drafted.

    edit

    This went out today:

    New Team Owners

    Tnt and newman left us, but we have some new blood.
    Joining us will be Zed Allen, aka zallen541 (zallen541@yahoo.com). He is taking over Just Dynamite’s team and has renamed it Emerald City Tomfools. He’s a Trailblazer and Oregon Ducks fan and was steered to us by Jake, aka, Dr. Badd. Although I’m hesitant to let first year guys into the league, Zed has a real enthusiasm for the NBA and Jake has tutored him on the ways of Sports.ws. Make sure you give him a warm welcome and heap abuse on him as you would anyone else!

    Also joining us is Aaron Newman, aka Chysalid (anewmania@hotmail.com) who is taking over newman’s team, Crazy Canucks. Aaron is newman’s brother, so just for laughs, I gave him his brother’s old team. He will helm the Kamloops Black Coats.

    New owners, just an FYI. Your teams both had a record of 41-15 and 36-20 last year, which placed them in the top four strongest teams, in terms of records, in the Western conference last year. You both inherited very good squads, so although you may want to put your stamp on your team with trades and such, bear that in mind.
    I’ve attached a file on how to set your rosters, etc.
    Draft
    I’m sorry we couldn’t vote on things as we usually do, but given the circumstances, I had to make an executive decision and pick a date, as you know. We will hold our draft, Saturday, 12/16 at 2:00 p.m., EST. With so many of you scattered around the world, I know that may make a hardship for some and I apologize in advance.
    If you absolutely can’t make the draft, PLEASE send me a contingency list and I will draft for you. And make your list as deep as you can. If I don’t have a player listed, I’ll pick the best player available. If you can make the draft, and leave, FILL YOUR CONTIGENCY LIST. I want to knock this thing out quickly, with a 15 minute window to make your pick.

    Send your lists to mr.scott.hunt@gmail.com. If you have something unforeseen pop up on draft day and you can’t get to a PC, feel free to call me at 317-340-7328. I don’t normally give my number out, but this season’s start is a bit unusual and I want to make sure everyone gets a fair shake.

    Protected Lists


    I believe I have everyone’s lists except Venice Vagabonds, Roaming Gnomes and Watss. If I misplaced them, I apologize. I need those protected players asap. If I don’t get those lists by 5:00 EST, I’ll pick which players are dropped. (And I’ll try to pick who I think you’d want to drop.)

    I’ve attached a rough draft of what I have to date on protected lists.


    I’ll send out the draft order and list of trade(s) later on today.

    I think you made a mistake in your 9-man roster for each team there, Scott. You have Aaron getting Kerosene's team instead of his brothers team (Newman).

    Scott, are you able to adjust the draft order and put our protected players on our rosters before we even start at 2PM tomorrow?

    such power...



    PS If I am not on right at 2PM, I will show up ASAP (I don't have a 1st round pick but I have 2 seconds and a 3rd). I may have to run an errand with the kids from 1-2:30 or so.

    Yup. That's how I'm spending my Friday nite so you all can wake up to full rosters and the draft order being set. I've already set up the conferences and just finsihed Amsterdam's roster. You know, the usual guys, Eddy Curry, Chris Duhon, Ryan Gomes...you know, his ususal squad. Wheee.....

    The site still lists such luminaries available as

    Raef LaFrentz,
    Antoine Walker,
    Dikembe Mutombo,
    and your old favorite,
    Maceo Baston.

    They used to have a few joke names listed, probably names of the programmers, but I think that they have been deleted.

    Why is it that in order to set my lineup for a particular day, that I have to set it about a week in advance?

    For example, for the game on the 14th ( tomorrow ) the deadline to set the lineup for that game is 1 week ago on 1/6. The Players that are playing and healthy on that day is way different then who will actually be healthy on the 14th.

    The problem that I'm running into when setting the lineup is that I can activate a Player that is healthy today for my game next week but then ends up getting injured inbetween now and next week...there is no way for me to change this.

    I found this out the hard way when Bynum finally started playing...and I couldn't use him for a few games even if he was actively playing because he was not activated the week before.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Yes it is hard to actively respond to injuries in some cases, since so many teams lead or lag in the league schedule. If the injured guy is on the team that is leading the pack in terms of number of games played, the team that is basically setting roster deadline as being the first team to play game 13 for example, then you can adjust (Bulls, Lakers in the example above). But in other scenarios (like an injured Clippers player) you basically will have had to factor the ability to cover for possible injuries into your lineup order in advance.

    It makes it tricky because you tend to think you want your lineup ordered to score the most when everyone plays, but in actuality people do get injured, so your lineup often needs to be ordered just a little differently with that in mind

    thats why it is important to have some sort of a bench who can provide you numbers when the injuries hit your players
