    Default FOBL: Are you going to be absent in the next 3 weeks?

    We have a lot of FOBL stuff happening in the next 3 weeks. We have a very aggressive schedule.

    I realize that summertime is not the best time to have a busy offseason. That said (sorry Buddy), if you are going to be absent for an extended period, or for any reason unable to perform the tasks required of you as an owner during this time, I need you to post here immediately with the dates you will be gone and to what extent your absence can be ameliorated by delegating tasks to another owner.

    This is even if you have already posted something in a separate thread.

    If you need things done, and are unable to find another willing owner, I will take responsibility for them. I will simply need clear instructions.

    So, again, if you will not be able to do any of the following:

    1. Bid in RFA/UFA
    2. Participate in the draft in a timely fashion (we will have time limits for picks)
    3. Review all upcoming released files for errors (this is our first season turnover in this version, and mistakes are bound to happen)
    4. Get your roster in shape for Opening Day (I will mandate 36 exports/valid rosters be in for Opening Day. If I start to sim Opening Day and get an error that you have 78 players on your active roster, we're going to have to talk)

    Then you need to post here with the details requested above so I can either help you out or consider pushing back the schedule if we are going to have widespread absences.

    I will be gone from the early morning of Friday, August 17th, returning Thursday, August 23rd at the earliest (later that weekend at the latest, but that's unlikely).

    I leave Monday 13 August and return Friday 17 August. I will not have game access. At this point I do not have a laptop to take so may be screwed all week. I will check to see if a laptop is available in the morning....damn Millenium hotel charges for internet though...but a sweet view of the Arch...Cardinals on the road all week.....versus the Brewers no doubt.

    Ron are you able/willing to take over?

    So as of right now, the owners who need help are:

    1. RyanS: August 17-20: Will miss the end of RFA and the beginning of the draft. Needs to either place sufficient reserve bids to cover himself in RFA or enlist a fellow owner to bid per instructions. Needs to give a draft preference list to me before he leaves, use the preference tool, and/or leave instructions with me or somebody else.

    2. Bruno: August 13-17: Will miss the beginning of RFA (including reserve setting) and the beginning of the draft. Needs to enlist a fellow owner to bid per instructions. Needs to give a draft preference list to me before he leaves, use the preference tool, and/or leave instructions with me or somebody else.

    3. Subby: August 10-15: Will miss the beginning of RFA (including reserve setting) and the beginning of the draft. Needs to enlist a fellow owner to bid per instructions. Needs to give a draft preference list to me before he leaves, use the preference tool, and/or leave instructions with me or somebody else.

    4. Simms: August 17-23: Will miss the end of RFA, the beginning of the draft, and the beginning of UFA. Needs to either place sufficient reserve bids to cover himself in RFA or enlist a fellow owner to bid per instructions. Needs to give a draft preference list to me before he leaves, use the preference tool, and/or leave instructions with me or somebody else.

    5. Ramz: August 17-26: Will miss the end of RFA, almost all of the draft, and the entirety of UFA. Needs to either place sufficient reserve bids to cover himself in RFA or enlist a fellow owner to bid per instructions. Needs to give a draft preference list to me before he leaves, use the preference tool, and/or leave instructions with me or somebody else. (hasn't posted here yet)

    So now the question is, do we push things back another week or can you guys get covered?

    We are moving things back 1 more week.

    I apologize for the delay in starting the offseason. This is not how I wanted things to go; unfortunately, we run into real life issues much more often in the summer. C'est la vie.

    That means:

    1. RFA starts on TUE 8/21/07 with reserve setting and ends on SAT 8/25/07.
    2. Draft starts on TUE 8/21/07 and ends on WED 9/5/07.
    3. UFA starts on TUE 8/28/07 and ends on SAT 9/1/07.
    4. Opening day is now FRI 9/7/07 at Noon EST in the Lounge.

    The people now affected, to a lesser extent, are: Simms and Ramz. You guys need to make arrangements as I discussed above.

    Anybody else who will be affected still needs to post here and I will update as necessary. This will be the last delay.

    We'll have a new file out soon with a rookie pool, so that should keep people interested for a bit. We'll start the draft ASAP and let it flow without time limits until the official start date.

    I just don't understand why we are doing it. At some point you have to cut your losses and move on.

    Guys,

    Just hang in there with me. This will be a great season, I promise. One more week. New file (with draft class) out early next week, maybe even Sunday.

    This strikes me as, uhhh, so much fucking around.
