Yes, HaK was moaning about it. Should be a message on the league page about it.

There's a chance I may actually be around for it, but won't know for sure until either later tonight or even tomorrow morning depending on if we're going out for the day to do anything.
Not that it'll matter much, since I've no clue whatsoever as to who to pick or when. And I have to go up against Uranus in the first week, so I'm not expecting anything good to happen that week.

And I have like the suckiest spot in the draft order too.

League 2 does, but you're in league 1, so I don't know if your commish created it yet. If not, Yahoo will about 45 min before your draft.

The way to check is to hit the Draft Central tab on the top row, then click Draft Results. There you'll find a listing of each team's draft position. If there's no teams listed, then the draft order hasn't been created yet.

at the inlaws vacation home in lake arrowhead for the weekend and the router is blocking the live draft. Not enough time to figure it out now. Go! Autodraft Go!

Thanks found it. There is a message that it was created about an hour ago.

Which is why you are supposed to test it beforehand!!

And not that bad of a team. Brees, Forte, Hillis, Jennings, D. Bryant, 49er D.

That's the silly thing, I knew the laptop would work fine since I already have used it for multiple drafts. I just never dreamed that a routers firewall would block the draft.

I'm happy with the team though.

If Sparky can predict the future now, in addition to all his other "talents", we are all in a lot of trouble.

FYI, my team name has been changed from Cellar Dwellers to Grape Apes. Even though I'm only in the first league I thought it would save any confusion for those who are in both.

I'm not thrilled with my autodraft team but I don't hate it, either. I have 3 stud WRs and 0 stud RBs in case anyone wants to deal...

Son of a ... Still no scoring for Def on Kickoff/Punt Return TD's. Which is the default setting. And I could have sworn was set prior to the start.

Yeah, I just read my recap. Will have to read the others later. It's a pretty cool feature.


I'm still pissed that I swapped out CJ Spiller at the last minute on Sunday. I don't know why I thought Marshawn Lynch would do better.
And my superstar Wes Welker from last year, who I ended up getting again this year, is doing absolute crap.
If only I didn't have to go up against Uranus this week, I'd probably have won.

Fracking Brees. Runs in a TD instead of tossing one to a WR. And Bradshaw goes out early with a neck injury. And fracking MVP Rodgers tanks on Thursday.

Guess I shouldn't have waved that EHP!

It's okay, starting to look like Chris Johnson was a waste of a first round draft pick, I can't even start him at RB/WR with the way the Titans are looking. Good thing my opponent isn't paying attention to his team at all, one guy out, like 3 probables or questionables ...

CJ2K was a bust for me last year, and I expect the same from him this year.

Between my nack for bad moves this year and my underperforming high draft picks, this may not be a repeat performance. Although if I recall I had a slow start last year and made the playoff cut over mark by just a few points.

Great. Just great. I'm 0-2 here, and 2-0 in my other league. With Ahmad Bradshaw in both leagues.

Great. Heyward-Bey goes out injured.

Only 20 points down. Yea, still have Rodgers! Boo, still have Rodgers.

I've got a slew of underperformers this week. Unless the Baltimore D picks up their game and Sidney Rice has an off day tomorrow, it looks like I'll be dropping to 2-1. Curses.

Well, looks like Grape Apes and I each finally got a win.

And yet another player (Benson) of mine is injured.


On the bright side, everyone else (except for the kicker & Benson) exceeded expectations. To the tune of a 182 points!

Which I believe is the new High Score! Sadly, this probably means no where to go for my team but down.

I expect nothing less from a 3rd grader.



Edit: "Three of the four losses for The Albino Rhino this season have come when their opponent had their highest-scoring week of the season."

Ouch!! Although to be honest, as of last week (thru 3 games):

"Of the losses Maulers has had, three were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week."


Besides, my loss last week was by less than a point.

110.43 to 109.76
