nope... today isn't his 5 year anniversary at the cafe... that was yesterday... so I'm assuming this is his 5 year wedding anniversary or something. Unless he has a bad calendar or something. The date in the corner of his computer must be wrong as well. Crazy Az... you should get those things fixed. Maybe he just has trouble reading dates :-)

I just think it would be WAY too big of a coincidence. I'm probably wrong though. :-B

Congrats on this:
Azrael wrote:I see alot of draft talk on here. Right now I'm trying to convince one of my leagues to go with an auction instead of a draft. I've done both and I love the auction. Here's why:

1. Everyone has a shot at any player.

In a draft, it takes nothing more than dumb luck to have the first few picks fall in your lap. Ricky Williams, Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander…forget about it if you have the last couple picks in the first round. In the auction, everyone has a chance to bid on each player brought up for bidding. In an auction, Ricky Williams is going to put a dent in your salary cap, but that’s immaterial compared to the knowledge that if he’s critical to your strategy, you can get him.
Sure you can manage a championship team with a late pick in the 1st round, but you’ll need to do so without any of the obvious blue chip running backs. It’s not fair that the other guys get to pick over the stud runners before you get a shot at them.

2. It’s strategic.

Compared to auctioning, a draft has almost no strategic elements. When it’s not your turn, you sit around scratching off names of guys you never had the option of obtaining. Finally your turn comes around, and you either draft the best guy you think is left on the board or a guy from a position you need (which you were probably put in that predicament by your original draft order).
In an auction, you can play a part in any players’ eventual sales price. Avoid bidding early and hope to dominate the middle or the auction with your big bankroll? Try to siphon money off the competition by raising the price on someone you think is overrated? There are many strategies.

3. It’s more exciting.

Since everyone can be involved with each player, it keeps everyone interested nearly the entire time. Unlike the draft where, after you get your starting positions filled, it really slows down as each person is stuck trying to choose between a Wayne Chrebet or a Mike Alstott. After about round 10, you just want the thing to be over but around the same time in the auction maybe Charlie Garner wasn’t even brought up for bidding yet.

Counter arguments for the draft?
