Sorry I took so long to put up the info. The vast majority of returning players have already signed up. Where are you DeLain lol?

We have 10 teams thus far. Along with Delain, my cousin will most likely join as well. And we will have spots for a couple of new players that decide to sign up and play.

The draft has been set for Wednesday, Sep 3, 7:30pm (Minnesota time). If you all want something different, let me know. I'll change it based on the consensus, provided the proposed change time is available by yahoo.

Would you all like to have yahoo randomly assign draft positions the day of the draft or would you like for me to do it (randomly of course) ahead of time?

I'm cool either way but I prefer if it's done earlier just so I can start plotting my pick, I enjoy the extra anticipation.

If no one says anything in favor or against that by tomorrow, I'm going to do a randomizer for draft position. I'll call one of the league participants and do it with them over the phone. I'll also take a screen shot of the results and post them here, so that I cant be accused of any shenanigans lol.

Sounds good. There are so many good options I don't think getting a high pick is as crucial as usual. I volunteer to take the phone call. Will PM my number to you.

Per our previous discussion, the draft order was set using a randomizer tool. The random draft order selection took place at approximately 1:30pm PST. The site used to conduct the order was http://fftoolbox.scout.com/draft_order_generator.cfm

To ensure fairness and the authenticity of the selection, Rick P, aka kgdabom, owner of Moss' Moon assisted the process via phone. He verified each team being placed in the randomizer tool, starting with my team, as team 1. The team order entered into the randomizer was as it appears on my league home page, which is listed as follows.

1 - Contender
2 - Alps
3 - Ducks
4 - Zeros
5 - Floyd
6 - Express
7 - Stumps
8 - Team X
9 - Moss
10 - Chedawgs
11 - Weapon X
12 - Fuego

Rick verified each team entered and the following screen shot was taken.

The randomizer was then initiated. Results of the draft order randomizer were emailed from the website to each league participant using the email address provided during league registration. That list is available under the league's 'Managers' tab.

Here are the results of the randomizer tool.

1 - Sparklepony Express
2 - Chedawgs
3 - Moss' Moon
4 - The Big Zeros
5 - Weapon X
6 - The Lucky Ducks
7 - Bloody Stumps
8 - Purple Floyd
9 - Team X
10 - Stranger in the Alps
11 - DelFuego
12 - Contender

The results can be viewed via the following link. http://www.fftoolbox.com/draft_order_generator.cfm?id=103946

Ian can't you do anything Right. Both Mr. Irving and I put in our request for the fourth pick and neither of us got it. Oh this wasn't rigged?? Now I get it. Good luck everyone and hope your draft position works out well for you.

The fourth pick is the best pick in 2014.

Seems like universal agreement that pick 4 is the place to be.

I am very happy guaranteed one of Peterson, McCoy or Charles. Thankfully I pick high enough that I don't have to consider Lacy or Forte.

Any one of those five would be just fine.

4th spot is awesome if you have no conscience. If you have a conscience it sucks.

Don't see how that works. You've got 1a, 1b, 1c, then the next tier. Is the drop off that steep coming back around after #4s 2nd rounder? Probably not.

Ditto. I didn't see the change until I logged in to draft at 9:30 CST. That did not go as planned.
