Crazy [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] times yet again in the world of Steg, so things with the league have to remain on hold until July, and we are definitely looking at a late draft this year.  Stegs will not come up for air [smiley=drown.gif] until July 3rd, but even then not really.  That said, amidst it all I would not mind hooking up with some of you east coasters.  Here are our upcoming dates...

We are in the throws of moving to a new place (YET AGAIN).  With some overlap in leases,.. we are currently in the process of packing; movers coming on June 3rd; will be out of this place and on a plane heading to New Jersey on June 7th, arriving on June 8th.  Reason for this current move: we are moving Mama Steg out with us.  That said, on June 20th, will hop in the car and head to Illinois to, per the quote above, get that dissertation defended on June 22nd.  Then, back to mom, and, after getting some movers and chuckers involved, we ALL head back to Hawaii on July 2nd.  Steg, of course, then has to be back in the classroom on July 5th to teach Deductive Logic for the first time, [smiley=uh.gif] which means that I should devote a good amount of time to reacquainting myself to formal logic [smiley=RIF.gif] and preparing the class... [smiley=LMFAO.gif] on the planes, I guess. [smiley=shrug.gif]

So, here we go...  Gonna be crazy, not much time to ditz around, but if you want to get together, let me know a.s.a.p., and let's see what we can do.  If you want to drop by the old Steg residence one last time, this is the last opportunity, preferably before June 20th, that is, before things are in total upheaval, and visitors are not really going to be welcome.

Over and Out... [smiley=onit.gif]


Alas, fellas, old Stegger is starting to emerge from the fog of war that was this summer...  In all frankness, I have endured some shit in my lifetime, but the events of this summer have brought me to my knees (and my wife as well -- Danny is now working one out [smiley=pudwhacker.gif]).  In all seriousness, the events that have transpired this summer have kicked my ass, and then this logic class I came back to teach has handed said kicked ass to me.  Mental and physical exhaustion and strained emotions abound.  This is why I have been M.I.A.

So, with that said, I had to back-burner the GBRFL.  As such, we are at a later point than we have ever been with respect to the commencement of a season, and now we have not a minute to spare to get the ball rolling...

We are obviously looking at an on-line/conference-call draft this year.  That said, with only about half of the league responding at this point, it nevertheless appears from discussions on "The... Just Talk Thread (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=53;action=display;num=1347219691;start=250)" that two of the only THREE weekends (not including this weekend) we have left to conduct the draft during have already been ruled out, that is, the weekends of August 20th-21st and 27th-28th.

That leaves us with Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd and 4th, and Labor Day itself, Monday, September 5th.  Given the urgent nature of this year's circumstances, I would also like to throw out a few more (outside-the-box) possibilities.  Fridays work for me...  How about a Friday evening draft on either August 19th or 26th?  In fact, I could make ANY day after Tuesday next week work, and after that I could also make Mondays or Wednesdays work.  Heck, how about a shotgun draft this Sunday, August 14th?  I would be game.

Thoughts!  Let's get to it...

Oh, and [smiley=welcome.gif] back!

I can probably make any time work.  I prefer the 14th or Labor Day weekend to the 26th because I will have questionable internet service then.

I don't have Labor Day off, but that weekend Sunday would work. Friday the 26th would work if it's late enough in the day.

This Sunday is no good for me.

Welcome back, Steg! Call me sometime.

So the Saturday and Sunday of Labor are absolutely horrible for me unfortunately. My wife reminded me my Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day are horrible.  If that is the only day, I can do it if someone calls and gives me updates as I will be standing at soccer fields all weekend with two travel soccer tournaments.

I am available Labor Day itself.

I can also do evenings, if it doesn't go super late. (except evening of August 23-25th.

I am available any and all other weekends as well.

I am NOT available this week at all.

Assuming a midweek evening, which I suggested in my message above (and have not ruled out), is really just a desperation option, it looks like, based on the discussion here, a Friday evening draft is becoming a likelihood, either THIS UPCOMING Friday, August 19th or the Friday heading into Labor Day weekend, September 2nd.  What do yous think?

Title: Re: 2016 Summer Meeting & Draft
Post by IbdFunk on Aug 14th, 2016, 9:29am
I'm good either one although the 2nd  probably makes more sense

Morning, gents. Huge congrats Dr. Stegifus. Amazing accomplishment and work to get where you are. Continue your work teaching these minds to be critical thinkers.

I am traveling Labor Day weekend, leaving Fri afternoon and then with family all Labor Day weekend. I am open to an online draft or making this Fri work.

Sorry for chiming in late - welcome back Steg! Sure there's work ahead still.

Labor Day weekend is my best option- that said, I can make a pm draft work if necessary any Mon/Tues last 3 weeks of Aug.
Actually, wide open after Sun the 28th, next 2 weekends in Aug however are not good.

Well, fellas, while I agree with Danny with respect to the Friday evening possibilities, it seems like one day is starting to come into focus in the face of our respective scheduling needs: THIS Friday, August 19th!

Whatchyas think???  PLEASE chime in promptly!!!  If that is to be the date, then we got to get a move on and get it finalized!

Sorry,,not gonna work for me and cant make it work. On vacation with the family and have plans. I didn't even mention this week because I never thought it was a possibility to have the draft so fast. Sorry

PS...if Labor is the only weekend, I can draft if someone calls me with constant updates.  It is going to really suck

Well, then, guys,... [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif] working backwards from Kickoff Thursday, it seems like our next best options are Wednesday, September 7th, the day before Kickoff Thursday, or Wednesday, August 31st.  With a start time around 8:30 p.m. (EST), I could make it work.

Okay, given Warner's edit, it looks like the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, September 4th, is back on the table.  So, what do we want: one of the Wednesday evenings mentioned above or Labor Day Sunday???

Heyas, fellas...  So, I am going to go ahead and declare Labor Day Sunday, that is, Sunday, September 4th as our date for the 2016 GBRFL Draft.  Barring any serious objections, I think that is it.  Now, as for the start time, look, I would really like not to commence before 11:00 a.m. my time in Hawaii, which is 5:00 (EST).  I am good with any time after that.  So, what time do yous want to start up???

5pm is late.      Let' start then .  While you don't want to start before 11am, I don't want to be doing this past 11pm.   It is a long weekend all ready.

We will, for one more year, table discussions about rules and such and just be drafting, so I do not see the 2016 Summer "Meeting" & Draft lasting much more than four hours, if that. Sans the rules discussion, we do not have to dillydally much on the conference call and can each get to making picks on one's own on the thread I set up. With the dissertation now behind me, in 2017 I see (me turning great attention back to "the Gridiron" and FantasyFootballer.com and, at any rate) us sinking our teeth into GBRFL rules and structural matters, some of which have been pending for years now. But, that is then; this is now. Monday is a holiday. Staying up past bedtime does not seem like it should be that big of a deal. We are talking one night here. That said, I do not see any of the times being considered causing anybody to have to be up beyond midnight. That is my... [smiley=twocents.gif]

Your right it is one day a year, so let's start at a reasonable time for all.......11am Hawaiianand 5pm eastern.    

Already potentially doing this from a soccer field.

Guys - sorry to barge back in on this - I can make Labor Day Sunday work, with a possibility that someone drafts from a list for me or that someone texts me all the picks and then I text back. My situation: I will be in New Mexico with family, not returning until Monday. I won't be with computer and will need to rely on my phone. If reception is weak, I will need someone to draft off a list.

Again, I will make that work if Labor Day Sunday is the best for everyone. If there is any chance of making an online version or a weekday leading to the weekend, that would be a much better option for me.

Given Mark's situation, do we want to revisit Wednesday, August 31st?  I can start anytime after 5:00 p.m. (EST).  Travis, can you do something to make that particular Wednesday work?  Does anybody else have a problem with that?

If this last ditch effort to optimally accommodate all falls through, we are back to Labor Day Sunday...

Post by Stegfucius on Aug 19th, 2016, 9:23pm
I just spoke with Mark a little bit ago...  He said he could make ANYTIME after 3:00 p.m. Mountain time, 5:00 p.m. Eastern, work on Wednesday, August 31st.  Indeed, he even hinted that he could go earlier than that.

So, Travis, what about you?  Can you rearrange your August 31st just a bit so as to bump up an hour and a half to two hours from that 9:30 p.m. (EST) start time you were indicating?

And, you east coasters, how about you guys?  Weekday draft on the evening of Wednesday, August 31st work?  And, if so, before when would not be good for you?  And, what would be an optimal time?  Please reply at your absolutely earliest possible convenience!  Thank you! [smiley=bow.gif]

Okay, so given that Travis cannot budge, what about the flip side of the coin? When is too late? If my guesstimate of perhaps four hours is correct, then a 9:30 p.m. start time perhaps means a 1:30 a.m. finish time, Eastern time that is. At best, we are at least looking at not finishing until sometime after midnight. Remember that we are talking about Wednesday, August 31st. Thursday is a work day, after all...???

It seems at the moment that we are down to Wednesday, August 31st or Sunday, September 4th, and it seems like if we cannot get this LATE NIGHT Wednesday option to work, either Travis or Mark is going to get screwed. :-/

Thoughts???

I can make either day work, but enough already. Let's just pick a day already.  We always have situations where we have to call people to make picks or have someone submit a list ... every year.  No big deal.  

I think we should do it Labor Day Sunday.  Mark said he can make it work.  Plus, he is a good enough drafter to not need to be near a computer.  We all know he is taking Mark Sanchez and Brandon McManus anyway.  Plus, can you imagine how whiny Steve Warner is going to be if we start at 9:30 pm?  That is way past his bedtime.    :-*

As the elder statesman here, I hate to admit that my body shuts down promptly at 10pm on weekdays. I cannot make that work and be functional at 5am on Thursday. I'd be willing to go ad late as necessary on Sunday but weekdays are not realistic. I can't start until 7 on a weekday.

Thanks DB, you summarized my thoughts correctly. If I had more confidence it would end any where near 1pm, I would say let's do it. And I think many east coasters would be joining Danny giving crap to people taking too long.

I will embrace that wanting to start at a time that works for all (11am Hawaii, 2pm PT, and 5pm EST) and ends the draft in a reasonable time is 'whiny'. (even when starting at 5pm may actually have a negative impact on me)

31st would be hard for me as well.  I'm currently in the process of moving and that is going to be the first week of work for me and I would still be in the process of unpacking and may not have Internet yet.  Labor day Sunday would be best for me. Apologies to anyone this is inconvenient for.

Okay, I am declaring that the 2016 GBRFL Draft will be held on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, that is, Sunday, September 4th with a (compromised) start time of 6:00 p.m. (EST).

(Sorry, Mark.) :(

This means that cuts/protections will be due by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, August 28th.  Indeed, the thread by way of which to submit protection lists has already been set up: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=53;action=display;num=1471626686.

As for the Lottery, some of you evidently want it to be held as soon as possible.  This upcoming Monday and Wednesday are going to be a bit hectic on my end.  So, the dates I am going to offer up for consideration are: this upcoming Friday, August 26th; the following Monday, August 29th; Wednesday, August 31st, or Friday, September 2nd.  Start time 7:00 p.m. (EST).  What date do yous want to go with?  We ultimately need three participants (including me), though I hope more of you decide to participate.  Including a little bullshit time, it typically takes only about 20 to 30 minutes.

Okay, guys, a couple of important announcements...

1) Re the Draft Lottery, since participation will probably be low as usual (though I wish it would not be) and any date works for those who replied, it will be held next Wednesday, August 31st at 7:00 p.m. (EST).

2) As the Draft is scheduled for next Sunday, remember that the deadline for submitting protection lists is THIS Sunday, August 28th by 11:59 p.m. (EST)!!!  Here is the link for that: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=53;action=display;num=1471626686.

Here is a link to the latest draft grid: http://imgur.com/a/66xbU.

I received it from Joe a few days ago. The only thing it does not include is the latest deal between Frank and Pak. I do not know whether or not Joe plans to keep this URL updated. (Also, Joe, just an FYI... The image file will not appear on "the Gridiron" if linked to as an image, like the way you sent it to me by private message. You just got to do it as a link like I did here. As it stands, I had to go behind the scenes to get the source code to get the link for it.)

There is a good chance I will not be able to make this call. We had very close friends come in unexpectedly from out of town. I have already created the spreadsheet for the lottery and will send it out to everyone in the league except Steg. Sorry, but I believe Danny and Joe indicated they would be able to make it. Someone please text me the results if I am not on. I am dreading the outcome......

I resemble that remark. Actually, though, I would have loved to drop only two spots last year. I managed to triple that number, somehow, from one to seven.

On another note, is it just me or does the 1.1 seem to go to Mark or DB nearly every year, especially in those years where there is a consensus #1 pick?

From one to five,... right???

De facto, yes. But you kept pulling names to see how long it would take for me to get picked, and I wasn't drawn until #7.
