    I don't know about everyone else, but I don't have a clue what this fantasy football stuff is about...do you actually have to know about real players? I'm sorry I'm just a geek, I don't follow football that closely

    Yeah. The site offers prerankings of all the players and gievs news if they're injured or whatever, too. You really don't have to know a ton about football to play this.

    Alright, I'm gonna run the draft sometime today or tomorrow - I've still got 2 outstanding e-mails (TechWins and Aran), but right now we've got 4 teams, which is enough to run a league (even if it is a little one). The draft goes tomorrow at the absolute latest, whether you two are in or not.

    10:30 Saturday night or tonight?

    I dunno, I suppose I could, but I really don't like pushing it back that far... I want to make sure it goes off before the season starts (but we'll probably be okay).

    I'm going to be at a party Saturday night, so if you meant Saturday night, it'll actually be Sunday.

    It doesn't matter if you miss it - it's not a live draft.

    No, the way it works is this.

    The site has their top 25 players pre-ranked. You can rearrange these (and you really should) to your liking, or just throw whoever you want in there. When I let the draft go, someimte between then and 3 days from then, it'll draft. The comptuer picks the draft order, and goes to the first guy. He gets his pick. The next guy gets his first pick, if it's not taken. Otherwise, he gets his second pick. It moves down the line from there.
