Westeros Fantasy Football Thunderdome 2018

We need to start picking a draft date.  The draft is snake, so autodraft isn't the end of the world if you pre-rank.  I've autorenewed the league, but would like the owners to chime in.

I can do any non-Tuesday after 8/21.  Please check in and give some hints about draft dates.

2011 – NvE, WvS
2012 – NvW, SvE
2013 – NvS, WvE
2014 – NvE, WvS
2015 – NvW, SvE
2016 – NvS, WvE
2017 – NvE, WvS
2018 – NvW, SvE
2019 – NvS, WvE
2020 – NvE, WvS
2021 – NvW, SvE
2022 – NvS, WvE

Week 4 – WildCard Game vs team from "matching" division opponent played in the previous year (ie 1v1, 2v2)
Week 5 – Rotating Division game
Week 6 – Rotating Division game
Week 7 – Rotating Division game
Week 8 – Rotating Division game
Week 9 – WildCard game vs team from "inverted" division opponent to be played the following year. (ie 1v4, 2v3)

I just wanted to say if there's a free slot I'd be interested because the Thunderdome format has always seemed like a lot of fun.

I’m back for more pain. I’ve got drafts already set up for the 27th and the 29th and will have a few other drafts to work around. In theory I don’t have any other obligations that can’t be moved or worked around. I always prefer Friday and Saturday nights or Sunday afternoons, but I am flexible.

I'll retake my spot only if needed. Intending on cutting back on leagues this year ... which this is probably the only one I'd cut (Experts, A, Keeper, Money (winner last 2 of 3)). Oh well.

Are we getting closer to picking a draft date for the carnage that is THUNDERDOME?!! :)

I was away at WorldCon for the past week.  And it appears that PotN and DunknEgg have a near perfect mesh of forbidden dates.

Let me ruminate the rest of today.  I'll have a date by tomorrow.

I can make a draft on any evenings or weekends except the evenings of Aug. 27, Sept. 4, or Sept. 5:)

Thanks, Bronn!  Maybe it'll help a little bit if I'm more specific in the dates and times I already have other FF drafts?  To expand on the quote here - I have Westeros A on Aug. 27 and Westeros C on Aug. 28 but they don't begin until 9:00 pm central time.  I also have FF drafts on the evenings of Sept. 4 and 5 each beginning at 7:00 pm central time. 

As you wrote in the OP, since Thunderdome is a snake draft, auto-drafting isn't the end of the world.  Of course, I would make due with that if necessary but...I'd much rather choose my own players who are inevitably going to suffer season-ending injuries in week 2 rather than having them randomly foisted upon me:P

And sorry about the headache.  Believe me, I know it's very difficult to accommodate even a small number of people's schedules -  let alone 16 of them!

I too have drafts on the 27th and the 28th for A and C, and my money league is on the 29th. Other dates are fairly open.  

@Bronn Stone,

You should @ everyone who is in the league so they get a notification to come and post their league status and availabilities.

I had to pick a date and I don't really like it either but everything else is bunched up.  This has been a crazy time at work for me.  I still have to spend an afternoon this weekend getting all of the schedule stuff right.

Sunday, 2-SEP at 4PM EDT.

I can't make that time.  Looks like another year of auto-draft for this league for me.

you realize that this is in the middle of the day.  I am going to have to trust the Red Woman to stoke the fire and not screw up the brisket.  If so, I'll blame Pod.
