    That was nicely done. I was trying to think of some way to turn it on him and end up with something close to what you said, but I wasn't able to do it. :victory:

    I'm bored and I feel like messing with someone. I hope Laimbeer says something stupid soon. It's been two hours So he's overdue and I'm getting impatient. Slippy has gone all management and is boring now, Linwood's probably still hung over from yesterday, Thee is too easy, and Rascoe isn't feeling his best. I sure miss Jamnertime.

    Our current scoring settings have everything as the Yahoo default value except:

    * We have passing touchdowns at +6 (default: 4)
    * We have interceptions at -2 (default: -1)
    * We have receptions at +1 (default: 0)
    * We have return yards at 50 yards per point (default: 0)

    Does anyone have any comments or suggestions on these or other scoring settings?

    You can go here to see all of our league settings: PF.com football league settings

    I made an initial tweak of interceptions and receptions. Now it looks like this:

    * We have passing touchdowns at +6 (default: 4)
    * We have receptions at +0.5 (default: 0)
    * We have return yards at 50 yards per point (default: 0)

    I need to google up mock drafts for this because honestly, my lack of experience and intelligence makes this task daunting (I am setting you guys up so I can remind you for the next year how you got ownzoned by a guy with brain damage). lol

    We have been beaten by guys with more brain damage than you (last year's season comes to mind).

    .5 PPR sounds good, as do the other settings. Yahoo's default of 4 for passing TD's is for bigger leagues

    I just set the draft order. You will be picking last in every round. Funny how that turned out...

    Just a thought. How about bumping points for defense by 2 points at each 'points against' level? Would add an interesting element to the draft

    Points Allowed 14-20 points1
    Points Allowed 21-27 points0

    The draft is tentatively set for Sunday, August 31 at 9pm. We could do a poll if that date/time has some issues.

    Once you officially register, I can have the draft order set and announced. That should help in draft preparation.

    Although my natural inclination is to make this as difficult as I possibly can for you, any time any date works for me. :decision:

    DRATS!!!! I WAS HOPING THERE WOULD BE A SPECIFIC DAY AND TIME THAT DRATH TATER COULDN'T MAKE IT. THEN, I WOULD SET THE DRAFT FOR THAT EXACT DAY AND TIME. I WOULD THEN MAKE SOMETHING UP ABOUT HOW THE COMPUTER WOULDN'T LET ME CHANGE THE DRAFT TIME.


    That's good. It is always enjoyable to have your presence at the draft.
