    Welcome. I have set up the small rocks 2021-2022 league. If you will message me I will send you the code to join. Assuming we ignore lobo's preference for the Pennsylvania lottery, I'll run our emails through a draft randomizer to determine draft order. I have everyone's emails from last year and found Scott's email from the year before. I will send Blech a request for an email to fill out the team list. Looking forward to a good year.

    It looks like we have an all North American league, this should make the draft pretty fast. The league template is ready and the player list for now has been entered.
    All 8 teams have access to the spreadsheet.

    Thanks for setting it up. I was able to access it. Ive been crazy busy since May and have to take a look at the transfer news; however, my biggest issue for the moment is that I want to be orange, but don't want to be 7th.....!!!!!

    Raise your shirt and look just above your waist.

    Love this time of year, full of optimism that I'll somehow draft better than I did the year before, even if I know deep down it won't happen.

    Don't know when you plan on starting the draft, but I'm away without internet July 29 to the night of August 2nd. If we start before then, I can try to provide a proxy list. Can't do any worse than I have the last couple of years!

    My preference is to start as late as possible so that we can capture more players. I'm expecting a quicker draft than usual and we're typically fast anyway.

    I would suggest starting around the 4th or 5th.

    If it works for everyone else, I'm good starting on Aug 3 to accommodate your travels. I don't expect to be at the computer like usual that week, but should be able to check in quasi-regularly. I'm okay with it being pushed later in the week too if that's what others want to do, and I'd think we have a decent chance of doing 4 rounds per day given what was said about being all in N. America time zones, but just reiterating that I may lag a little more than usual this year.

    Either way, I'm in favor of running the randomizer sooner, rather than later, so that the real planning can start...... :cool:

    I can run the draft randomizer at any time. It would be great to hear from FC St Pauli and Bobfest just to be sure they are ready to go. I am good for starting Aug 3. That gives us 10 days to draft and adjust our teams.

    I tried to start a conversation to get the League ID, but I got a message saying that I couldn't do that. Please send the league information to me at bobfest@yahoo.com

    August 3 or after is great for the draft.

    I had the same issue, I had to find an old conversation and that worked as a reply. I will message it to you Bob. August 3rd is fine for me.

    I have drawn 7th or 8th draft spot in all of my 3 years in the top flight. I have hopes of something higher on my 4th attempt?!

    Awesome! We've heard from everyone. I'll run the draft order generator this afternoon around 3pm eastern. Be sure to check your spam folders if you don't see it.
