We need to get moving on a RR fantasy football league if we want to be able to do a live draft on Yahoo. The past few years we were forced to draft on Red Reporter which was a pain (although the new system should alleviate that if it comes to it).
The following people expressed interest the last time the waters were tested:
Caleb (if needed)
In addition the following were involved last year (sorry if I missed you)
sledridge (where has he been?)
Anyone else is welcome to throw their hat into the ring now. So far it looks like 14 strong committments with a potential for 18, plus whoever jumps in now. I think we should be able to get to 20 so we can have two leagues. That would increase the chances that everyone could make their draft time.
What time works best for drafting? 7-ish on a weeknight? Stay tuned to this thread for league-joining info which will probably be forthcoming.
The league with a live draft will be this Wednesday at 7:45pm Eastern (8 was unavailable and the next time was 10). If enough people really have a problem starting this soon we can move to Thursday, but the times would still be 7:45 or 10.

The max teams is 14. You can still edit your rankings and let the computer autodraft for you if you like. However there is also an
League ID #: 554710
I will hand over commissionership and drop out once enough people join this one. Once everyone is ready the commish will tell the computer to do the autodraft. There’s more time to get a crew together here and fantasy first timers are welcome to join as it should be a more mellow scene.
