Other than that...I'm going to go home, open a beer, and grill me some burgers!

was it ever determined if there'd be kickers?

No one objected when it was discussed so we're going with no kickers. They seem too be any after thought even for those who like them.

--

In preparation for the draft I've opened up a Roster Thread. Please post your placeholder team there and keep it updated throughout the draft.

It got really positive responses so if you didn't know about this:

Everyone's team name will be NFL style. Use your hometown/state/other geographical area with a nickname. It could be your actual hometown or a well known city near you. I think the only important thing is that it'd be nice if no one had the same place.

I will be sending out PMs asking for people's preferred slots for the KDS draft slotting process. Once I get all those and determine the order, we'll be ready to draft!

A thought: we should have someone outside of the 14 of us be generating the randomized 14-slot pick order and then assigning us our eventual draft position :-?

That's just for order of who "selects" their slot first, right? If so, then I believe the KDS kicks in afterwards ;-D

I thought we pick the first round and then it goes to 3RR based on the first round order, otherwise it would be uneven (eg - if team A chooses to go #1 and then draws #1 in the second round it would be a distinct advantage)

I could be totally wrong, but this is what I thought was the case when I turned in my list ( :-o O:-) ):

We submit ordered lists of our preferred drafts slots to greg, knowing the underlying system when the process is done will be "3RR" (1-14, 14-1, 14-1, 1-14, 14-1, 1-14, etc.). Then, using the "KDS" system of choosing slots, he (or hopefully an outside party) will randomize a list with our names that will give them an order from which they will then run our draft-slot preferences to come up with the final, official draft order.

I was also under the impression that we were chosing our preferred slots, then by a random order the KDS was selected. So if I chose 1,2,3 as preferred, and i got the #1 spot in KDS I got my first choice...then after the slots were filled it turned into 3RR.
