I've set the draft for 17:00 on Sunday night. Happy to move the time if you want. NFL scoring is now PPR as standard - figured we'd go with the flow.

Gibbon, get your ass in there and create a team...

Just check that time Rob because it’s looking like 5am on the 2nd to me (BST) 😬

I've no idea what that thing is doing. You pick a date and time and it changes it to one very close but not the one you picked. Through a process of elimination I have selected the wrong date and wrong time which has made the date and time correct.

Live Draft: Your draft is on Sunday, Sep 1, 2019 at 5:00pm BST.

Is there any point in me joining in? I mean American Football is the starty stoppy game with too much padding and a rugby ball, right?
Should I wear a jumper if there's a draft?

I created an account, but your link now says I've not got permission to view the page.

That's amazing! I'm assuming some issue with timezone?

I don't think so - I think the date picker is misbehaving (probably due to one of my suite of script blocking addons if I'm honest).

We really need an equal number - who else can we force in? :D

Thor? Waco? Gouldy?

To be fair, I'm only in because you told me to. Not sure what to do now. :hyper:

You can login on Sunday and take part in the draft or just let the system pick players for you - it will fill your team based on the offical NFL player rankings which are OK although the team spread might not be great. It's probably as easy a way as any to start if you have literally no idea what you are doing. After that you need to keep up with bye weeks, injuries, and take wild guesses on who is going to be a breakthrough star before one of the rest of us does and grab them for the overrated rubbish it turns out you ended up with.

I'll probably just treat it like the fantasy premierleague one and ignore it. :lol:
