    I'm in the Adams Division - too bad we aren't competing in another league eh Pengwin?

    This is going to be interesting. I've never played in a weekly league before, but the challenge is part of the fun!

    Just a thought to the organisers/commishes/co-commishes:

    Has there ever been threads created for all the divisions? That way, those in the leagues can discuss their own, smack talk, etc and get an idea how the others are going. And, for those who didn't make it, can get a sneak peak and even have their say. I would imagine there would be a lot of good chat in there, and the commishes could regularly give standings updates etc.

    Thoughts?

    By all means, any and all leagues are welcome to post their draft, thoughts, trash etc... much like the expert thread.

    Can somebody give me an update:

    Under "Scoring & Settings", and at "Weekly Deadline": (what should it say?)
    The 3-Tier leagues are weekly roster set leagues, yes?

    No problem.
    I didn't set up the Smythe league correctly though.
    It needs to be corrected. (Gates, I'll send you a PM, please help.)

    I figure the waiver/FA budgets will prevent streaming as well, depending on who you want to grab. This is the first time I've been in a league with both of these settings.

    Yes - I really hope we have a season because I'm interested in these new settings.
    I haven't done a "weekly league" in years now... and the FAAB budget is completely new to me. I'm going to have to go to the forums and ask questions like a NOOB!!!

    Congrats to the SmytheDivision today.
    Great draft.

    Knocked out all 375 picks in 2hr 15min.
    Average pick time = 21.6 seconds. Not too shabby.
    Good luck guys!!!

    Request to the Dobber 3-Tier Veterans:

    Can somebody explain two league functions:

    1. Weekly Roster Set-up.
    If the first game on Friday is at 7:00pm (EST), by what time does a team need to have their roster set by?
    Does the starting roster need to be set by end of Thursday?
    Or... can it be modified right up to 6:59pm (EST) on the Friday?

    2. FAAB ($100)
    Can somebody explain this? How does it work?
    If you try to claim a player on Tuesday (say), will you get him by Wednesday? Thursday?
    When does a "succesfully bid-on" player show up on your roster?
    If your bid is not succesful, how soon will you know - and will there be time to try to bid/add for another player?

    1) Thursday midnight Eastern. Teams are then locked a minute past midnight (Friday morning).

    2) FAAB - Think of it this way : You have $100 to spend on waivers and FA. Bids are weekly. You can put in a claim of $0 or $25 (heck even $100!) on any available player. Should you win the bid (even with a zero dollar bid) you win that player and can place him on your team (dropping another of course - unless through IR).

    Example : I bid...

    Player A - $0
    Player B - $0
    Player C - $25
    Player D - $9

    Someone else bids...

    Player A - $1
    Player C - $20
    Player D - $10

    Results :

    I get Player B at $0 and Player C at $25.
    He gets Player A at $1 and Player D at $10.

    Again, bids are weekly so it gives a chance for everyone to place a bid. You can either go for the player of the week / hot streak or find hidden gems. Your money, your call.

    Hope this helps...
