CRL News


OK gang, this is going to be short and sweet so I can get back to the really important stuff of watching NCAA conference tournaments on ESPN.


Just a few things on the agenda today.


First and most important, money.Five of us havenít paid yet.Yes, I said us.I forgot too.But besides me, Otis, Farabee/Keith, Kerr/Thompson, and Hutch need to get their $250 to Glenn ASAP.We do have certain off-season expenses.Stat fees, meeting room deposits, etc.The deadline was March 1.So get it in.


While we are on the subject of money, hereís a breakdown of what every team gets popped for: $45 for stats, $25 for the meeting room and $10 for miscellaneous expenses.So that means every team has already spent $80, and we havenít drafted a player.


Since the five of us forgot to pay on time, we move to the rear in the minor-league draft.The new minor-league draft order is: 8, 1, 4, 7, 12, 3, 6, 13, 10, 11, 2, 5, 9.


Speaking of minor leaguers, we had a vote on whether to keep them for next year, or throw them back so that everybody drafts completely from scratch.The vote was 5-1 in favor of throwing them back (I voted to keep them, since I thought it might help trades get done).But since the majority didnít go to the polls, weíll throw the kids back at the end of the year and have a completely new draft next season.


In the process of trying to eliminate team 4 and move team 14ís roster to that spot, I screwed something up on the AllStar Stats website and team 4 has no players.They really do have players, so Iíve posted the current rosters here for everyoneís use.


If you have trouble logging onto the AllStar Stats site, let me know and Iíll set up a password for you.


Iíve updated all the owner contact info I got, but please check the address page and let me know about anything I either missed or havenít heard of yet.


I donít know whatís up with golf this year.I know that Iíd like to play, but Iím not going to set anything up because Iím tired of being League Secretary and Social Director.Iíll keep doing the secretary thing, but Iím going to let someone else handle the other arrangements.Hereís what I know so far:Kerr has got his own tee time somewhere.Spencer is not playing golf, because heís literally getting off a plane from Hawaii and getting on one to Vegas and doesnít feel like dragging his clubs thousands of miles.So if somebody wants to take the ball and run with it, be my guest.It may be that everyone is grouping up into foursomes and having one of the group call to make a tee time.If somebody needs a fourth, let me know.


Finally, a reminder of the important dates.


Friday, March 29, 10 p.m. central time Ė Roster Freeze Day.


Saturday, April 6, 10 a.m. pacific time Ė Draft Day.


Once last thing, any of you interested in this yearís NCAA pool, let me know.


See yaí in Vegas.
