The sign up date is only a dream at this point since we only have 9 of last seasons 20 guys signed up as of now.
I would really like to have everyone that wants to come back, signed up before September 21st.
After that I guess I'll start looking for replacement owners.
Pencil in October 5th as the date your protected list will need to be posted. Depending on your draft pick status you can keep anywhere between 8 and 12 players.
Draft date will be October 12th. Its a Saturday so most of us will not have work to worry too much about. Family is another matter. The draft is only 4 rounds and the draft clock will be set in such a way that everyone should have plenty of time to make their own picks. We will have a couple a weeks before the season starts, more than enough time to do a 12 round draft let alone just 4.
More on this later but please understand that we will have guys slowing down the draft by not picking on a timely manner and not using their contingency list.
You should know that this is far more madding for me than it is you. I will try not to b*tch about it too much if you make the same effort.
