I'm excited, just as we all are, but I would rather have a "hard" day/time to look forward to then a moving target. It just makes it easier on both the host & the participants. Just something that we might think about for next month.
.....also I need to organize my scotch drinking around the break soooo......

Ok everyone...I talked with John. The break will follow the OP and take place the 4th Sunday of the month as stated. He realizes everyone is very excited but that why he made the stated rules when we started. He's crazy at work and hopes everyone understands...which I'm sure you will.

Break is Sunday 10 pm est...see everyone then...plenty of time to plan ahead!!!

OK, that sounds great. Maybe having this to look forward to will keep me from buying a box this week to bust??? Or....maybe not, lol

That's why I thought I'd make a post, get some people posting in here since it's been a little while! I finally broke my curse in a Crown Royale 2011 Case Break and pulled a Drew Brees JSY Auto /20, so I'm going to be happy for a while!

For some reason, this seems like a major dead time for all things football card related. I haven't bought much in the last few weeks and I'm finding it hard to sell stuff too. I think this is a time frame where a lot of people are saving up for upcoming releases.

I think this is the "calm before the storm". From a buyers perspective, it feels like I have made some easy, cheap purchases I probably couldn't have made during the season. From a sellers perspective, well, I have made some cheap sales that I probably wouldn't have made during the season!

I think with the excitement of the preseason to see the new rookie class, plus then the actual season starting and the release of some of the "better", strictly opinion, sets, things will pick up considerably.

Besides rg3 and luck, I just can't get excited about the 2012 draft class. At least 2011 had quite a few people to be hyped about...this year only three. Anyone else agree???

I actually checked on the 2011 vs. 2012 first round picks the other day. I looked at offensive skill position players (QB, WR, RB, TE) which are usually what drive value.

Top 5--2011 had 2 skill position players drafted, 2012 had 4

Top 10--5 players in both years

First Round--8 players in 2011, 2012 had 11

Based on first round picks, 2012 looks more exciting on paper. However, the Browns & Jags were 2 of the top 5 picks and they don't get much hobby love. I think the overall mix of teams that drafted skill players in Round 1 is what might be making 2012 less exciting from a before-season perspective.

Now that training camp is upon us, I can't wait to see some of these guys in action!

I need the draft to be tomorrow, if breaking til 10est I'll be at work by the time the draft starts. Unless you can start break like 8 est and draft afterwards.

I'm down for whatver, but I'd be willing to bet we'd probably have to start the draft tomorrow so everyone will be prepared. Although really, I guess it really doesn't matter when it starts since we have to wait for the guy in front anyways.
