I think the real question is when are the league records going to be updated with my accolades? ;-D

Later this summer. Many dynasty owners are having their rookie drafts now... We will probably pick this back up when those are winding down.

Fancy schmancy place holder in the form of a question: do we get slots based on how we played last year, or is it a random pick yet again?

That's a good question. I checked our constitution and it states that draft order is determined by random draw via a third party website.

That doesn't mean we can't change it.

I actually like the idea of the Kentucky Derby Style of drawing for spots. For those not familiar with it, here's the essence of it:

Each owner would privately submit their preferred draft slots to the commish (me), in order from most preferred to least preferred. Lets say you love the 4 spot but hate the 11 spot. Your PM to me might look like this:
4, 5, 3, 6, 7, 1, 2, 12, 10, 8, 9, 11.

Then the co-commish (murph) would randomly draw a pick order. Every owner would get their highest available draft slot pick based on that random draw.

Lets say murph draws m16a first. m16a gets his first choice... In this case he said he wanted the 2nd pick.
Then murph draws my name. My first choice was the 2 spot, but since that's already taken, I get my next choice, which was the 10th spot. I would continue to read owners' draft preferences from left to right in the order that murph drew them.

The advantage to this draft style, obviously, is that you have a good chance of drawing a draft slot that you want while likely avoiding one that you don't want. In my past experiences with this, a high percentage of owners drew a spot that they were pretty happy with.
