Oh wow, I get pick 2! Pretty sweet!

Good thing I checked in here on the site. On vacation with the wife and baby so it's kinda crazy.

Am I the only one that prefers 14 teams (I know it's already locked and am not pining for 2 more managers)? This was always the deepest league that I played in and I kinda liked that.

It wasn't really a choice. We're running out of time and we were two managers short.

I know bud, I'm not complaining at all. I know how hard it is to commish, so you won't get a peep out of me. Just saying, I used to scour the waiver wires in this league, and then use that knowledge to go pick up guys in other leagues. Now that it's a 12 team league I'm gonna have to adjust how I value production on the wire...

Wow...in my two other leagues I've drafted 12 out of 14 and 11 out of 12. Looks like my draft strategy won't be changing much this year lol.

Okay, fellas. Here it is!

Superbone's Suns (Bone) Commissioner generated random draft order
Less than 1 minute ago

Round 1
1. Randy Watson
2. Platypus Beaks
3. Maldo
4. Shabazz
5. Team_Island ...
6. Superbone's ...
7. Hermenators
8. Huskies
9. SplitT
10. Andrew Gaze ...
11. Flagrant Fowl
12. ProjectMayhem
Anywhere in the top 6, maybe 7 was what I was hoping for. Not fussed where. Oh well, pick 10 and auto drafting will make for a fine challenge.

Kool
Glad things are working out for everyone, as pickle rightfully said being Commish can be a headache at times so good job 'Bone.
Shel being a true pro and not even fussed about getting last pick 8-)

Man I can't believe I missed this. It has been years since I played (and beat many of;-) ) you guys. I'll put my name in the hat for next year if you are looking for new managers.

Congratulations to Andrew's Gay All-Stars (Gladiator). A single block was all that kept me from becoming back-to-back champion. Although, he still managed to win while dealing with some Load Management.

I think it's pretty unusual to have the teams who picked 10th and 11th end up in the finals.

Congrats Andrew, and to the other top teams as well.

This season felt strange to me with all the load management going around and come-from-nowhere fantasy studs.

Good stuff boys. Still think I had the best roster :)

One thing for next year if possible - can we change the TO category to something like double doubles. Never was crazy about TOs as a stat and double doubles could be more fun when looking at players.

My roster was on top most of the year. Just sayin'.

That looks like autocorrect having some fun.

Was 'Gay' and 'Load Management' too on the nose?

Thanks all and sorry for not seeing this thread earlier. It certainly was a nerve-wracking grand final, game on the line all the way to the final match. After Kawhi Leonard completely burnt me last season, it was kind of cool that he repaid me a little bit this season, even with a fair smattering of DNP-managed/rested throughout the season. Still can't quite believe we won.
