    Last evening several members of the AFFL met at Ralphie's in Galion to determine draft order and draft date.  Thanks all who were in attendance.  

    The draft is set for August 27th at 1 PM.  This is late enough in preseason we should know about significant injuries and starting positions, as well as roster depth.  For those of you who are at Avita, or one of the associated businesses we work with (Hannah), I will send two meeting makers, one for 12:30 PM for that day, as a reminder to get in, get set, and to build out your player pool.  A second reminder will be for 1 PM that day, as that's when the draft will start.

    Here is the draft order, as determined by blind draw.  If you don't like your spot, blame Devin.  Okay, I blame Devin.  I don't like my draft spot.  That said, we had 6 in attendance, so those who couldn't make it we randomly drew numbers for positions.

    1. Scott Hazen
    2. David Bugg
    3. Curtis Brause
    4. Alex Reed
    5. Hannah Fagan
    6. Devin Gottfried
    7. Jenny Taylor
    8. Isaiah Bertsch
    9. Matt Ruth
    10. Terry Sheets
    11. Jim Austen
    12. Terry May

    Remember the draft is a serpentine (snake) draft, so order goes 1-12, 12-1, 1-12, so the order is flipped each round.

    We have a 23 keeper team, with 2 spots for pickups during the season, which are not keepers.  If you want additional FA pickups, you can do so by cutting a player on your roster.  So the draft is 23 rounds, which means it will take significant time, but each year after the draft should only take 2 hours or so.  I will schedule at least 6 hours for drafting, but my hope is because it is a Sunday in late August, most, if not all of you, will be able to log in to RT and make your selections.

'Like if you sleep with your legs hanging off your bed the whole night, you're going to wake up and be super stiff. Or like sitting on your hands, or sitting in an awkward position and finally getting up and moving - that's how I feel.'
