    Please use this thread for all discussion during and after the draft. Appropriate decorum is requested. Keep things above the 1800 line.

    Here is some information about the spreadsheet for those that have just come up, at least this is how we did it last year which went well enough. We will use the player list for the draft period only, after that time I will hide the page (I may wait until the first game is played if that is useful).

    Please use your colour as usual to indicate the player is chosen.

    Once the draft is complete it will be the usual 24 hours before transfers can be made.

    The 'Transfers' page is used to detail transfers, we are updating this on both the spreadsheet and here, so effectively 3 places;
    1. BigSoccer transfer thread when setup
    2. Google Doc 'Transfers' page
    3. Google Doc 'Squad' page

    Just getting ready to suggest the same. The major deals have stalled. Let's get rolling.

    I see that the player draft list is frozen and posted on g-docs. Waiting for Pepe to be added is irrelevant. I know we have managers who have expressed a preference for getting off to a quick start due to busy schedules later in the week. Lets try to make good progress in the first few days and put a fair number of rounds behind us.

    I've got no problems getting it going.
    Epikoinos hasn't been on since last Sunday so he likely doesn't even know about the suggested delay.

    He asked that day the planned start date to which I replied August 1st.

    Picked and sent a message on BS to FCSP. I don't have other contact info I don't think. Paul - Did you wind up compiling that for Small Rocks?
    Good luck everyone!

    I was hoping at least one of those 6 would not be taken, I suppose now I've gotta think...

    I think the top six were set. Mane is pretty pricey for a 6th pick. Couldn't pass on him though.

    It feels weird picking defenders so early.
