I literally just renewed our league and sent all of last year's owners an email via Yahoo. Subject line: JBF Throwdown 2019.
Worry not. Like seasons past, you don't have to do a thing. If you played in the league last season, you're already signed up for this season. That said...I NEED TO KNOW IF YOU'RE IN OR OUT. Either way. I need 11 replies here in this thread so that I can work on recruiting new teams if need be.
As to the draft: I think the live draft last season worked out REALLY well. So well, in fact, that it's making a comeback this season! If you weren't a part of it, the draft itself didn't take all that long. 30-45 minutes max. I've set the draft for Saturday, August 31st at 10 AM PST. That date can certainly change. I'm open to doing it Sunday, Sept. 1 or Monday (Labor Day) Sept. 2. PLEASE weigh in on both your participation (in or out) and what day/time works best for you. A morning PST start time seemed to accommodate everyone last year and the weekend before the NFL starts its season has been customary for this league since its inception.
Worry not if you can't participate in the live draft. You can obviously still play, but it's important to RANK YOUR PLAYERS. We had some last season that didn't do the live draft and also didn't rank anyone. Sucks for that owner, but in that instance you'll be at the mercy of what Yahoo determines is the best available in that situation. So take an hour or two over the next seven weeks to come up with your draft order.
If you're like me, it's been six LONG months waiting not only for the NFL to start but for some much needed redemption. In my case, it's seasons long redemption! I, for one, can't wait!
