Re: NFL Fantasy Football

there will be a timer Im guessing...so when its your turn to pick...you need to be quick !

I look forward to tonight's draft, at 7:30pm.
yes...good luck all...just got time to do a little bit of prep...but an 8 player league is fairly easy....more tricky when its 16 (which I have some experience of !)

Re: Riga International

Alan Merry is STILL doing rather well...does he have a chance of an IM Norm ? Merry lost in round 7 and with 4/7 his current TPR is only 2316, which looks out of it for a 2450 IM norm.
