    I'm still in. I admit to not really having a full understanding of how this works, but I'm down to learn and try it out.

    Also thanks for the reminder. I would have completely forgotten otherwise.

    Thanks guys. We're going to send out full details before everything kicks off (getting pretty close) so keep a tab on this forum and your PM's.

    I'm still in, as is Spankov. He probably won't log on until the rankings come out, though.
    As cliche as it may sound, I'd like to raise another round, and if your bottle's empty help yourself to mine, thank you for your time and here's to life.

    The rankings are ready to go and as soon as we get our sweet 16, I will post them. The more time I have I keep tinkering with them more and more. I hope that's a good thing and I'm not overthinking them. I'll keep with the plan of posting a few positions everyday for a week to give people time to review and respond. The purpose of that activity will be:

    1) Determine if everyone is cool with this being an "All-Time Draft" as opposed to a "Super Bowl Era" draft. I am going to lobby hard for the former.
    2) Ensure the rankings are suitable. Obviously, there will be certain rankings you disagree with. But hopefully you will see that there is some method to my madness and that I've tried to be as consistent as possible. For some of the positions the rankings will matter quite a bit, and others (the positions that are based primarily on stats) they will not matter much. However, I want to provide some time for feedback so if several people believe certain players or positions are not accurately ranked, we can make changes.

    I've sent PMs to a few people and 1 responded no. 2 came back with full PM boxes and I'm waiting to hear from 2 more. In addition to the 1 who turned me down a while back. Gonna throw a couple more out, then try to get my buddy to sign up.

    Goose's computer sim has rankings of every player available for the draft. If you read through from page 1 you'll see some of the ideas behind the rankings. He's going to post them for looking over once we get the 16 participants confirmed as still in this. We're almost there.

    If you have any more questions than you can find from page 1 on in this thread shoot Goose31 a PM.

    Thanks!

    Anyone try to get back to Canada? It was a while ago that he dropped out and things may have changed on his end since then. Worth a shot, anyway. By the way, I haven't heard back on any of my PMs since I last reported. Also left a message with my buddy. He should get back to me sometime tomorrow (Thursday), so I'll let you know what he says. I'm sure he's going to have all kinds of questions about it. My only concern with him if he decides to do it is how long it will take for his account to get activated. I know my roommate had some issues with the time it took for his first account to get up and running, then had issues with it afterwards (hence, the 2nd account). But so far, so good on that one, so maybe they worked the kinks out.
