    Sorry this is being posted late. I was waiting to see if we had a couple of people get off the fence and join. Here is the order. You pick where you want to draft in the First Round. Remember, this is a serpentine draft. If you pick first overall, you pick last in the second round. Second overall pick picks next to last in the second round.
    When it's your turn, pick when you want to select.

    Here we go.

    1. SA Air Attack
    2. Cellar Dwellar
    3. Titan Bengals
    4. The Boys
    5. Mountain Dew Kid
    6. Mama's Team
    7. Vast Right Wingers
    8. Touchdown Bluegrass

    No offense guys, but only having 6 teams in a league doesn't make it much of a league. Every team has way too much talent at every position and IMO takes the fun out of it.

    Is there anyway to even open it up to the public so we can have 10 teams?

    One time in the past it was thrown open to the public to round out the league. We had some major issues. So much so, complaints made it all the way to the top here at BB.

    I wouldn't have an issue opening it up to a fellow believers, but we're awfully late in the game to do that. Two BB members were on the fence and fell off.

    That said, if you know of some brothers or sisters that want to play, let me know. Every person who has ever played in the league gets an invite (and that's not in line with BB rules). But I want it to be as open as possible. But the general public at large is not an option per BB rules.

    If anyone else feels this way, we'll punt altogether. I love FFB and love the spirit of competition here at BB. But if it's a drain, let's not do it.

    This is the only league I play in and I don't care how many teams are involved. This is fun to play.

    While it is disappointing that we only had 6 sign up, the way to make this a good league is to add more roster spots. I recommend going to 2 QBs, 3 WRs, 3 RBs and 2 TEs. That gives us 18x6, or 108 players being selected. We may even want to add more roster slots, like maybe include a flex position or 2.

    I am definitely adding another WR and possibly a flex. I'll consider another RB and QB. I meant to do that yesterday.

    That's always the way you make a small league more interesting. It will lengthen the draft, though :)

    By the way, if we don't start the lottery process, we'll just punt and use a draft order.

    I don't know why we've lost four people every year. Well, there is some explanation for attrition, and some were very upset when it was thrown open to the public, but there are other factors to consider. Some league members aren't around anymore because they aren't around the board anymore.

    Yes I did. I was told I'd be kept in mind for an opening if someone dropped or something but I never hear anything. It was a lot of fun. I wish my team hadn't been taken from me.

    With less than 36 hours to go, the draft lottery is now first come, first served. Ignore the order for the remaining pickers. First one in, you pick your slot. Any leftovers will be randomly assigned their spot.

    At noon today, the draft order will be set. Pickers not selecting their spot will be assigned one randomly.

    Sorry I missed the draft. I got held up at an appointment. I had customized by draft order however. I like the looks of my team :).
