Hi guys. On the podcast Friday you mentioned you might launch ahead of schedule. I have my son-in-law all geeked up for his first NFBC draft. Any updates you can leak out to us?

Sorry, I was out of the office yesterday as our local high-school team played in the championship football game at state yesterday. Yes, your Iola-Scandinavia Thunderbirds (with my son on it!!) played at Madison yesterday and played their hearts out. But in the end they fell 35-12 to a state powerhouse to finish second in Division 6. What a great experience for this town of 1,300 -- of which more than that showed up in Madison -- to enjoy.

Now, back to baseball. We had final testing on the draft room and credit cards yesterday. I didn't see any issues. Let me check in with IT this morning to get an update. I think we are almost there.

The Draft Champions leagues this year will start one hour after they fill this year, so if we do get this going today be ready to set your KDS and to draft. I will add a separate post to explain everything involving the Draft Champions, but the idea is that we are going to fill these faster this year and we're going to draft these faster this year. Stay tuned.

We do have a 10-day DL now if you're interested!! :lol: MLB started that last year and it was soooooooo well received by fantasy players. You'll be back playing before you know it. :lol:

Hang in there. We will have you done with refresh soon enough.

Okay, so these are all of the folks who said they wanted to be in the first Draft Champions leagues. We will need everyone to first sign up on the new NFBC site once that is live. I will send an email out to everyone as soon as that happens with instructions on how to do that. Again, we have new Age Verification software and Location Verification software, so everyone has to go through this initially. If you already signed up for the NFFC this past season, you are good to go and can easily add this Draft Champions team. If this is your first time then sign up, have the software verify that you are at least 18 years old and in a non-exempt state and away we go. First 15 in will be drafting soon.

Here's the list again:

Bill McRae
Steve Clarke
Todd Macey
James Wilson
Michael DeCavalcante
David Miller
Jon Stadtmueller
Gregg Doyle
Robert Dlogizama
Marty Rancilio
Martin Lowy
Mario Malgeri
Steve Meyer
Kyle Estes
Nickolaus Sackett

It is not. The NFBC lobby is its own, but I'm sure in time we'll create links to easily transfer from one of our contest lobbies to another.
