Alright looks like we're booked up to 10. I'll set up and send y'all email invites. Is everyone good doing $50 buy in and the same payouts as the other league?

Good question! What times

Good question! What times work best for everyone? I wanted to do a small get together where we draft in person at the brew house but my schedule on weekends is tough. Can anyone do after work during the week of the August 28th-31st? Draft starts at 6:30. We have a few brews, draft, and laugh at all of Rich's terrible picks.

I am only here 28-29th that week, but could do it then.  I like to start with complete shit, and then build it into a marginally inconsistent team that just misses the play-offs..

Rich sounds like you and I

Rich sounds like you and I went to the same school of drafting.

$50. I can do Chase quick pay and I can do paypal. Both to the email [email protected]. Additionally, I do also accept cold hard cash, but it's gotta be in untraceable small bills or a sack full of nickles(chilled preferrably).

THanks for doing this, Jay!

I'll pay you via QuickPay.

Don't know if I can swing the week of 8/28 but will try to make something work. I onlly skimmed the thread; will the in-person draft be at the brewhouse?

Yeah we'll do the draft at the brewhouse. If you can't make it out to the brewhouse that night you can always just draft online or ESPN also has a pretty good draftcast system that you can do on your phone as well. And then the dreaded "Auto Draft", should you be totally indisposed on the day of the draft.

So I'm feeling the 28th or 29th at 6:30. Anyone else have any strong opinions on the matter? If not, we'll go ahead and schedule it.

Yep scoring method is set. It

Yep scoring method is set. It's a custom PPR league with 1pt per reception and then some added scoring for players that achieve milestone marks(like rushing/receiving for 100+yds, passing for 350+yds, etc.)

You can check it out at http://games.espn.com/ffl/leaguesetup/settings?leagueId=483890

There is also an IR spot for any players that get hurt during the season but have a chance to return later. That way if you drafted someone highly and they get hurt early, you can keep them on your team if they have a chance at coming back; without taking up a bench spot.

FYI - You set up the draft on

FYI - You set up the draft on Eastern Time.  I was going to use that to my advantage, but everyone else auto-drafting probably wouldn't help me that much...

Matt, I think you are

Matt, I think you are confusing this league with the other league which I think you are in on: https://www.chaosbrewclub.net/forum/general-discussion/chaos-fantasy-foo...

This one is on ESPN, the mother of all fantasy football sites. Yahoo! is still a thing? Lolz. Welcome to 2002 guys.

Awesome, everyone is signed

Awesome, everyone is signed up. Reminder draft is scheduled for August 28, 2017 at 6:30 PM. It says 7:30 PM ET on the site because I can't figure out how to switch it to Central time. If you can, come out to the brewhouse at 6ish and we'll do some drinking and some drafting.

Additionally payment can be sent via paypal or chase quick pay to [email protected]

I'm out of town starting Thursday, so I'm gonna need to back out of hanging out tomorrow so I can get some family time. I'll try to get in remotely from home, though.

I believe Wi-Fi is off at club. If we are still doing draft tomorrow, everyone should plan on bringing some kind of hot spot or plan on using their phone.

I was planning on trying to multitask tonight and finish up a couple batches of Gose while also drafting, so Roots is likely out for me. I can draft remotely though.

I was just there kegging some beers and I don't think it is (based solely on the fact I saw the wifi with a question mark on my phone, indicative that it's asking me to sign in somewhere), but I wasn't paying too much attention.

I think we are back internet-wise at the brew house guys. I was able to successfully connect to the camera which would inidicate that the internet is back online. I plan on being at the brewhouse and drafting still.

No, no issues there. I mean, we are all logging in online from somewhere so it don't matter if it's brewhouse or your house. However, you won't get to hear my drunken witty banter about every shitty pick that everyone else makes....so there is that.

I can't make it tonight either and I have to work. HOw do I set it to autodraft? Or, will it automatically pick for me if I don't choose in time?

It will auto pick for you if

It will auto pick for you if you don't pick in time for your first pick and then set you to autodraft for the rest of the draft. If you have any time to login and take a look you can always unset auto draft and start drafting. I think they have a mobile app you can do it from(if yours is the kind of work where you get some free time)

You can also set pre draft rankings of players and I believe an auto draft strategy such that if a ranked player of yours is available it will draft them, though I have never done that myself.

Yeah, I have my autodraft

Yeah, I have my autodraft strategy set. I just didn't know if I had to set it to autdraft or if it automatically does it.

I won't be able to access the draft until after it's over. I have a sales call at 6 and it could easily take 90-120 minutes or more. If I'm done earlier, I'll hop on the mobile app.
