money sent. Would be nice if there was an update about the game. It was scheduled for this week

Should do the draft when suits as many people as possible, and a few days before the season. Since the season starts on Friday 11th of Aug, can i suggest we do the draft sometime like Tuesday 8th/Wednesday 9th?

i won't be able to do Sat/Sun, at Osheaga :p

But that's always gonna be the case for some of us, so whatever suits the most (or me)

Whatever happens, those who can't do it live can always create a preference list and the game will pick from that accordingly

also, just saw the guy who won FPL last season, is and Everton fan who avoided Liverpool players from start to finish. Says he's always done that, even when Suarez was banging em in.

i think it's taken down again

This is the site it's meant to be
https://draft.premierleague.com/

was on it briefly last night. joined a public league and then left it so i could see how it worked. It had the players likely draft position similar to NFL draft games, and you could add players to a watch list, but from what I could see, I'm not sure if you could make your own draft order in the event you're not free for the draft.

That would be my best guess why it's back down

i had a look at it this morning, and yeah you can make your own order in case you're not available. you just rank people in each position
then it started talking about making changes and something to do with your FPL ranking last season determining your place.
i lost interest after that.
this could be a mistake
Q: What if I cannot make the draft?

The Scout: Before the draft, each manager can create a Watchlist of players, listed in priority order, representing their top targets for each position.

If you are absent for the duration or for any part of the draft, the Watchlist is used to automatically make selections on your behalf.

If no Watchlist is selected, draft ranks are used to prioritise automatic selections.

Each player in the game is given a draft rank based on their total FPL points last season and/or their potential for points in 2017/18.

How does tuesday 8th august at 1pm suit everyone?
Monday 7th is the bank holiday. If that is better for people let me know.

Other than Dara, does anyone else have a time zone difference to take into consideration?

Email sent to the 9 people who've paid up. The email has the league code in it.
if anyone doesn't get the email let me know.

Draft date is set to 8th August at the moment, but it can be changed.

The pick limit time is set to 90 seconds. I don't have any strong feeling s on that, but if anyone thinks they might be short on time during a lunch break, and that it should come down let me know. It can range from 30 seconds to 120 seconds.

Im a little bit worried about the ability of the league commissioner to manage the league via email.

Should we have a whatsapp group for the draft?
