    Currently drafting but seems that the same people have the same pick each round.

    My mate also was there for the draft and said that to me today Real ale, small bit unfair surely? I'm happy enough with what I got, but if there was to be a new draft I'd not object either. Is it necessary and possible?
    The above is all opinion and based on personal experience. Unless stated otherwise it is not a dig at anybody, well probably none of you lot.

    So what's the outcome of yesterday - are we drafting again ?

    Edit - just saw your post there Clifford - I'm not sure if we can re-draft, think its just an error somewhere - we should re-draft though if its possible. I had the 12th pick in each round. Worse again for the 13th and 14th pick. Usually the guy in 14th would pick last in round 1 and first in round 2 so essentially he/she would have 2 picks in a row.

    Sorry about the mix up with the draft order. I set the draft a month ago and forgot to recheck if I put it linear or snake. I can redo the draft but it will have to be done Wednesday night at the latest.

    Can set it to Wed at 8pm if most people agree.( I have sent an e-mail to all league members)

    No harm done at all Wex, without you it wouldn't happen at all. Suits me fine for Weds. Was a bit too good to be true on paper as I had RG111 who might come good, but had Shady and Foster at RB and Garcon, Welker, Floyd, Bradshaw which was pleasing. I was number two on the list apparently! Thought it was a bit decent all right.

    See y'all Wed night.

    Its been a long long time since I've seen a Patriots team take such a licking as they did last night. The Worst defeat in 11 years. Brady out of sync with offence, O line slow, D line porous, same problems as years gone by in the secondary. 2-2 is not a record that would say you rule them out but this is one hell of a hole they have dug for themselves - the hoodie has a huge job on his hands here to get this team into the play-offs.

    13 consecutive years with a winning record, 11 play-off apprearances, 8 AFC Championship game appearances, 5 Superbowl appearances and 3 Superbowls later - is this the end of the Brady / Belichick era?

    Bradys quality has papered over the cracks in the last number of years. A shake up is definately overdue, the problem is its not easy to remove some one of Belichick or Bradys stature, so any changes will be behind the scenes.

    Its not easy to replace a franchise QB, so Brady isnt going anywhere until then. I wasnt suprised to see them take Garropollo this year. They'll be keeping a good eye on QBs in the draft this year too. Not everyone can be as lucky as Indianapolis.

    Our D struggled to begin with last night. Thank God we have Peyton. We eventually just powered through Arizona.

    Seems to be the theme so far this year.

    God I love Tom Brady. Thats probably a bit OTT but I do love him - in a Patsy Freyne / Padraig Harrington type worship way. What a player and what a competitior. Listening to him as I do every Monday evening on his WEEI weekly Radio interview - you could tell this performance meant something to him, the "Hoodie" and the whole team.

    The Pats were as awesome Sunday night as they were poor the previous Monday. It will be very interesting to see how they follow up this week in Buffalo - where historically they don't have a great record and playing an opponent high on confidence.

    Schedule looks tough so wins in next 3 games - Bills / Jets / Bears are essential before a November that sees them take on the Broncos / Lions / @Packers and @Colts!

    They deserved to be beaten after allowing Romo back on. I was delighted because of that.

    Its amazing how many yards TY has recieving for Indy with just one TD. Killing fantasy owners. I think Indy coming off that debacle vs Pitt really blows out the Giants on Mon night.
    Interesting game is Cards and Dallas, Romo says he will play. Cards coach coach of the year easily.

    The Irish need some dominos to fall this weekend In College.
