    Okay, the draft board will be going up shortly and I'm itching to talk draft.

    Please keep trade talk in the trade thread and limit this to discussing the talent on the board.

    I'll start by saying I am SO excited to see the draft board!!!!!

    What I will say is the draft is going to be a pain because soo many people are trying to coordinate schedules.

    I peeked a few days ago so I have an idea of what the Draft will look like but dying to see which players progress. The Draft could be paused and everyone have X amount of time to pick, almost like how the "Gish Girl Draft" worked but Sick would have to be there to pause/resume and it could really draw it out too long. Probably best to have a day where the most can attend like last Draft. I just ask that once we set a day, if it gets changed to set it at least a day in advance. I about missed last one not bothering to log on that day since it was set for another time. For those that are new, you can draft from the EASports site so even if you can't be near a PS3 maybe you can still draft.

    We need to get it tagged down ahead of time....unlike last time when we decided the day OF IMO. I want to be there, but am busy for the next few weekends...any weeknight should be open, BUT I know we have a lot of people....so it will be hard. I'm willing to be gone, or have a stand in, but I'd hate to slap a board together again.

    Any chance we can do this this weekend? Sunday?

    I beg that we don't do it the middle of this week. My girlfriend will be in town only for Wed-Fri and I haven't seen her in two months. If I put her off to do this draft she may breakup with me then and there.

    I'm hoping we can do it this Saturday! That would leave us a day to check out the board, and on Sunday we could have a 24 hour no free signing period while we all sorted out our rosters and picked up players Madden had kicked off our rosters without our permission.

    Sick, what do you think of:
    1) a Saturday draft?
    2) a 24 hour no free agent signing period after the draft (can only resign your own people)

    Well, my other league had the draft before, but I don't know if it's for sure the same guys. Plus, once the draft is over the board is gone and the dudes are scattered throughout the league's rosters so I'm really looking forward to getting our board up so I can assess and stack talent.

    Time to bust out a new signature. Saved it as the wrong type so harder to go back and change it around because I wasn't done, but for now I will use this until I tinker with a different one or unless I change my mind about QB.

    Quick count it looks my team progressed 78 points overall. My RBs and WRs were both big winners again this year with progression. My 5 starting WR went up 20 points combined and even my old fifth string I cut went up 6. Has changed my draft plans some and may add some players to the trading block, still kind of looking over everything. I love progression though, like a kid in a candy store.

    Oh, not sure anyone is interested but during the bye week I averaged up some numbers; I'm a stat guy.

    2010 Regular Season Game Averages

    Points For: 40
    Total Yards For: 345
    Passing Yards For: 182
    Rushing Yards For: 163

    Points Against: 14
    Total Yards Against: 278
    Passing Yards Against: 235
    Rushing Yards Against: 43

    Average Overall Player Rating: 72.5

    I can do Sat 12th....but busy Sunday then leaving that night...wont be back till 17th, can also do 18th or 19th but then leaving 20th, then not back till 26th which would work, and then 27th and back for while.

    I am all for starting up the next season, but dont want to rush this and make it a mess either...if we are in the league we are in the league so Madden 11 doesnt really change getting it right.

    As far as I'm aware I should be ok for Saturday and Sunday if it's chosen for one of those days.

    Well... I don;t pick til the third now.

    Gotta say though, whoever ends up with Deon Grimes is gonna be one happy mofo judging by those ratings.

    My other early faves: Reggie Kenton

    And if I hadn't gotten Ed Reed and Jon Beason, I'd have targeted FS Tai-ler Bernard at 11 and MLB Marquise Kassem at 31. Let's see if I woulda gotten them. lol.

    It's fun NOT having to worry about the draft!!!! I can pretty much tell y'all what my strategy was. :)

    ok and im thinking about doing the draft on the ps3 (from what i have seen online, you can set the timer from there)

    the only bad thing is there is no chat room.

    so we can chat on the ea site chat room, and run the draft via ps3. cool? if not, maybe people can make picks from ea site if I (commish) is starting draft from ps3? we shall see
