actually, it's not too late - i can change the league setting up until the draft.  as i wrote earlier, i'm a fan of head-to-head too - more smack talk - but the only 2 people who piped up when i asked said points (although one was willing to try H2H - so qualified support).  now 2 others (with me, 3) would rather have H2H.  
 
 salparadise, do you feel strongly about keeping it points?  i don't want anyone to quit because we switch to H2H, since folks signed up for points.  but if no one objects, i'd be most pleased to change the league setting.

i wouldn't get too excited. you'd obviously be losing that week. [/b]
AND IT'S ON!!! [/b]
i'm fine w/ h2h. i'm just lazy about doing the extra scouting and seeing which of my players do better against which defenses... but i'll manage.
 
 while we're talking about making changes...anyone object to delaying the draft 'til monday night?

tell me about it.  
 
 although rhett informs me that threesomes are themselves disappointing, so it's a no-win situation... disappointment if you do, disappointment if you don't.  *sigh*.  how have your menage a trois been lately?  maybe they're better on the west coast?

thanks SalP for your flexibility.
 
 about changing the draft date: personally i'm not sure when i'm getting back from labor day travels, so monday night might not be good.  but i'm planning on leaving my selections on auto-pilot (based on my picks made beforehand) so i don't really care.  i'm generally in favor of stabilizing this league and leaving things as they are, but can and will change based on popular opinion.  if anyone else wants next monday, please speak up.  silence = keep it this wednesday (i.e. in 48 hours).

Hey! As a native Detroit-er, I'd like to point out the Raiders are much worse then us! [/b]
Are you out of your frickin mind?  I know you're young and all, but there's a special place in hell for those that talk shit about the silver and black!

well that was fun/a personal disaster... should make for an interesting season for me      :)    
 
 biggest sore spot for me: vince young as my starting QB.  just not confident he's ready yet.  so now i gotta figure out if i go with him against jacksonville, or put hasselbeck against TB (TB having a weaker defense than JAX)... time to read some blogs, i guess.
 
 the person immediately before me took brady just as i had him lined up for my next pick. @$$hole!!!  the Pats are my team (in the real world), but none of them ended up on my fantasy team.  guess i picked with my head and not my heart.  logically the right thing to do, but makes me feel... empty.
 
 i so can't wait for the season to begin!
