Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is no secret that there have not been scores updated for the past two weeks.  While this is an issue, it is with reason.  At this time, I regretfully must announce that the TCO 2011 Draft season is, at least for the time being, closed.  Not only due to personal issues on my end which limit the amount of time and resources I have, but also do to bookkeeping.  The spreadsheet I used to keep track of Superstar scores, GM rosters, and Score Totals has crashed and been completely wiped from my computer.  3 weeks of work went into formulating that spreadsheet.  It was the life of the draft.  I'll try to get working on another sheet, but it would seem the first Season has come to an abrupt end.  I will keep you updated should we pick back up for the second Season of the year.  All GMs will keep their same rosters, and I have the notes you all have sent me requesting trades and free agents.

Only you could have beaten me to drafting Sin Cara. How WAS anyone supposed to beat you to a free agent without being on the Hot List, anyway? It's not like I can PM you faster than the speed of thought.

Simple:  I gave a 10 minute window of opportunity.  He, and all newly activated Free Agents, are activated at 12:01:00 AM.  Your request was submitted at 12:11:11 AM.  Yes.  11 seconds.

Hah the second he was made active I sent him a PM, but alas to no avail. I wonder which of us requested first, just out of curiosity.

I understand how difficult running the draft must be, and it is understandable, even if disappointing, that you need to take a break.

Let's hope season 2 goes better for everyone!

10 minutes?  On a forum?  At midnight?  Sorry, but that hardly seems fair or realistic.

Still, kudos for running it as long as you did, dude, that looked like a hella-lotta work to keep track of!  lol

Hopefully this can be avoided next time without the need for an anonymous GM role, by having enough players.

I wish WWE.com still did their WWE fantasy game since it didn't require anyone to devote ridiculous amounts of time and effort to run and stat-track.
