Heyas, Guys... Since, officially, we are headed off the phone and on-line for the remainder of the Draft (though the conference line will remain there for us to use), I thought we should have a thread for Draft thoughts and analysis. This is it! This is the place to comment on picks or whatever else...  Have at it...

Guys, one other note...  You do not have to wait for the clock to turn "on" at 2:00 p.m. (EST) to make picks.  You are welcome to make picks during the "off hours".  If it is whatever time, say, 7:30 a.m. (EST) and you notice that it is your pick, feel free to go ahead and throw 'er on up...

As such, his selection is due, by rule, by 2:30.  That is to say, the clock is reset as of midnight last night, and he is on the 30-minute clock as of 2:00 in the afternoon (EST).
 
Good luck on Day Two, everybody!

Heyas, guys... During the lull here, has anyone gotten over to any popular fantasy football message board forums and pimped the GBRFL Draft??? If you do so (and I would appreciate it if you did), the link to use would be: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=53;a ction=display;num=1344759965. Also, if you do so, share the link to that thread with us here!
 
I DIGRESS...
    On that... , I just updated the league home page and "History" page. I realized that I missed a season's worth of years of experience for us all (on the home page at least). Go check out how MANY cumulative years of experience we are up to!!! We are about to break another century mark! As for special recognition, Mark is now in his 20th year playing fantasy football and Travis in his 10th!!! This kind of FF experience makes our GBRFL Draft VERY pimpable!

20 years - can't believe it. However, I do remember that first year for some reason...
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh, that's right. I won the very first (and never to be repeated or duplicated) GBRFL championship. Funny how you always remember your first.
 
 
Whoops - no disrespect to those that haven't won one yet.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well, maybe a little I suppose.

I think Frank may be having some issues - his phone has been going directly to VM for awhile now. Any thoughts?

Frank's 30 minutes are up...
 
Travis is on the clock and has 30 minutes...
 
Frank can post/call someone to make his late pick at any time

I think he misses his pick all together and needs or make it up at the end, he can't jump in when he feels like it and make a pick. Commish Yiu need to step in. This is why this format sucks, retards!!

It's no big deal Dan. If Travis makes a pick, he makes a pick. Frank then makes his pick(s) up when he can. He just misses his window. No different from the real draft.

I have got your back...

Also, just hold off on Frank for the moment...  Let me try to give him a buzz. I have a different (unpublished) number for him.
 
Also, in your free moments here of anxiousness, feel free to help me do a little pimping of our efforts here (and 198 years cumulatively heretofore) by heading over to some FF sites and giving this one a little love with a post about our ongoing Draft!

Sorry boys. As I feared, the "living at the Jersey Shore" nightmare happened when people just show up. I got caught up in the mix. I seem to have posted my pick in turn. I'll try to do better the rest of the day. The coronas are starting to take thierr tolllll trhoufgh.

You are an ABSOLUTELY TOTAL RETARD!  You have absolutely ZERO thinking and listening skills!  Your only saving grace is that you realize some of this and admit to it at times.  You should try a little humility and "thinking before you speak", which may indeed lead to the valuable exercise of "not speaking,... and thinking"!  I know of no one (who I care about a little bit) who needs meditation more than YOU!
 
Anyway, to the point, the same problem would have stood with Frank's more structured suggestion.  Indeed, the problem of someone's not making their pick on time would have been INTENSIFIED!  Think it through!
 
ANY-way...

I like how Danny was pontificating last night about getting leniency because of his flying issue, which we were more than happy to give him and yet he's the one in the front of the mob yelling "crucify him, crucify him" while pumping his pitchfork and torch.
 
Yeah I know I lost you at pontificating Dan......... It means flying in the exit row.
