Re: XFL Hosts 1982 Retro Draft - Interesting Concept

I’d be interested in Express draft, and I’d also be in the winner’s circle.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

I’m planning on July start date with 81-100 games.

And let’s hope they aren’t waiting for an effective vaccine, as that could be never.

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

Is that where you’re going for NFFC drafts in October? May/June for NFBC live events? All I’m saying is get ready for Mustang Harry’s and Triple Crown cause we are having the MOTHER of all weekends once this is over! I doubt they do live events and remember reading somewhere, maybe in the lobby, th...

Only time will tell, but it gives me some hope.
Warm up Mustang Harry's in NYC. I have a feeling we will be there at some point this year.

Main Event: The plan for the Main Event is to move forward with scheduled Online drafts the 14 days before whatever the new scheduled Opening Day is and to hopefully get all the TBD teams/owners into times and dates that fit their upcoming schedules. Over 96% of Main Event owners have left their te...

Hey, some baseball news...

“Aaron Boone told @MLBNetworkRadio that whenever Opening Day does occur, he believes Aaron Judge, James Paxton and Giancarlo Stanton could all be healthy and ready to go.”

Hey, Mark. Was doing the same. Lots of adjustments were being made on my end that last week just in case. My sentence quoted above really refers to most of the drafting season prior to this virus really ratcheting up. For instance, I did all of my DC drafts in November through mid-February, when th...

Re: Open Chat With Greg, Tom & Darik

I think we need to support the NFBC, or at least be sensitive to their predicament, none of which is its fault or doing. All of us have enjoyed the NFBC's leagues, many of us for a lot years, and also enjoy the many friendships we have made through the NFBC. For those fortunate enough to attend liv...

bringing in Chad's post from a different thread, as it's very relevant and well said... No skin in the game here, but basically the NFBC is in an impossible spot.

You can tell an owner "well he always injured you should not have drafted him" you cannot say "well you should have known that DeGrom you paid $40 for is now gonna throw the same innings and get the same wins as........Rich Hill lmao". i only drafted 3 leagues this offseason, my lowest number by fa...

I don’t think anyone has any idea when this will be over. Unless this virus is totally eliminated, I mean 100%, isn’t there a strong likelihood it stays around for a while?
