blackhawk, just a note. when you make your pick, you should try to private message the person next in line so they can make their pick. this round, the next person up would be wakeupmrwest.

Damn, isn't this fun:

Chipa is back to replace Tyrus the Beast. I would like blackhawk to take the Yao, Bosh, KMart2 team so Chipa can get his old team back. I have made a few rash moves here (replacing Chipa so quickly), so I hope you can accomadate my friend.

Thanks

I doubt PMing Blackhawk willl do much good right now...I know because he's my roommate and he's passed out from a long day of drinking on the lake in the sun. I told him he should address this before I left the house a little while ago and he said he would, but I think he passed back out. He didn't sound too thrilled about the team change and I'm not sure if he wants Martin or not. Either way, this will be addressed by tomorrow and within this pick's 24 hours. If he doesn't want Martin, I think a fair solution would be to let him throw Martin back in the draft pool, have him pick 2 picks, and have him pick 2 picks in a row next time to, which would really be picking the second pick before Netsfan and Caveman Doctor to make up for them picking before him here. It would also be nice if he was able to pick 2 picks in a row on the last turn in the draft to make up for the team change and the fact that this is the last keeper round as the 4th, but that would be up to you guys.

I am doing my best to fix this mess. All I can say is he can take two people at this current pick and put KMart back in the draft pool, but no other accomdations will be made. Chipa was a member of this league first, and I only thought it fair to give him his team back. So either draft two players for your team blackhawk and return KMart2, or make your selection.

And the rules state anyway that I would draft based off cumulative value which happened due to Tyrus leaving. Even so, he was blacked out so he would have missed the pick anyway if that was his current spot.

I know it's annoying when you have undependable people and you're trying to coordinate a draft like this, but it's hard to say that he would have missed his pick when he didn't even know it was his pick (the Kevin Martin one) until yesterday evening. I think it is fair to give Chipa his team back and I also think it is fair to let blackhawk move up four spots so he would pick at picks 5.10 and 5.11 if he does not want the Martin pick (which he may, since he didn't really have the chance to put any thought into it when I brougt it up) because he was bumped four spots, so that would technically even it out and he would get to get 1 pick in front of the people who got 1 pick in front of him. (although it would be a worse round now). That's all I have to say and I'll just let him speak for himself, but my point is that when you're making rash moves, maybe you need to make an exception to maintain fairness, particularly when the decision maker's team may benefit by not making an exception.

I fly for 20 hours overseas and I come back to see musical chairs. Certainly somewhat messy situation. Tyrus' situation I understand since people dropping from leagues is an unfortunate but not surprising situation. Chipadub's return certainly was the real curve ball. As far as the solution goes, I'll stand behind Netsfan since he was here the whole time while I was gone.

Though perhaps, another solution might be had (longshot but hear me out).

If Blackhawk wanted one of Caveman or Netsfan's subsequent picks instead of Kevin Martin, and that pick's owner would like to have Kevin Martin instead over their current pick then it would be solved instantly.

That's assuming who Blackhawk wants, to me that's the variable that would change the situation.

hello. i'm not sure why my team was given away so quickly as I informed the commish I may not be able to participate because the admin at my workplace suspended first all internet and then only cafe viewing. now I have convinced her the cafe is not a porn site and that the hot chicks thread isn't nudity (please keep it clean or I'm in trouble). I can assure you all i'll be active through the draft and season. it would be nice to get my team back, but whatever works.

If he isn't here I can't do anything? Your suggestion of moving his 6ht round pick up 5ish spots would be unfair to Caveman who is neutral in this situation. All I can offer is a repick of KMart2 at this point. There are plenty of players left who are as good if not better than the players Caveman and I took. Look at the expert roto mock or bballmonster.

For my sake, I am getting tired of the damn problems that keep coming up, so do me a favor and help me help you.

(Also, I am getting the feeling that blackhawk won't be around as much due to JordanRulz speaking for him. This is giving me bad vibes.)
