Manny did not "change" his mind. A trade had been made with Honeymoon's Over on Thursday. But confirmation had not been received as of late Saturday, so I assumed that it was not going to happen. As a result, I made a trade with Ol' Cheeseboy. When Honeymoon confirmed, I went back to that trade, as any honest, upstanding, non-GB fan would. I'm sorry if I'm of higher moral character than DJ, but if that's a sin let me be guilty.

Since Manish is the Bill Bidwell of the FFL, he changed his mind on the previously announced trade. It is now off.

Once again, this years draft will be held via conference call. Without his strategic advantages, the Shysters will suffer their usual fate (1st rd playoff loss, at best).

I thought I'd get some people pumped up for this year's draft a little early. I cut an article I found out on the net written by Sterling Jackson from FF Mastermind. I found it reminding me of you guys.... Draft day is the single most important day of the year. Mastering your draft day is the key to success. Here are some hints that I've acquired throughout the years to help you master your draft day. Some of these tricks are dirty, but yet are well worth it. The first key to draft day is to be prepared. If you have taken my advice, then you have your top list and your mock draft done. This is all the info you will need for the draft. Draft day is not a study day. Let those bozos in your league do that. You are set. Your battle plan is done. The next thing is to get a good night's sleep before the draft... at least 5 hours. This is where I lack. In my local, I am lucky to get four hours sleep the night before. Eat a good breakfast if your draft is around noon, or a good lunch if it is an evening draft. There are also certain types of food you should eat. You want to eat food that will give you sound bowel movements. I know this sounds stupid, but the last thing you need is to take constant runny dumps during your draft. This will make you weaker and lose concentration. Pasta is a good lunch or the Perkin's country fried steak and eggs will fill you up if you have a noon draft. There are certain things to bring to the draft. If you smoke, bring three packs of cigarettes. I donít care if you are only a pack a day smoker. The last thing you need is to be stuck without your nicotine. Bring some beer for your buddies. There are different opinions on what type of beer to bring. Some say cheap and they are wrong. Go to the import beer store and buy some of those high percentage in alcohol beers. They will think you care instead of getting them ripped faster. If food isnít provided, then bring something. A big sub sandwich will make your fellow GMís drool. Bring your old magazines and toss them around unless these guys donít study at all, then donít bringĎem. Put your cheat sheet and your mock draft into a simple folder. The more bland the color, the less your fellow GMís will be tempted to spy. If you have a folder and put on it "Secret Notes" or something like that, someone will pry into your folder. A neat trick to do is to bring some incense to the draft. Real men hate the smell of incense unless something is being rolled. Use the excuse that it makes you calm. It may work, but probably not. Another trick to do is make sure all the GMís wives are invited. There is nothing more annoying than some bimbo saying she is bored, and she will be bored for four hours or longer! Plus, lost drafts are in the hot month of August. In fact, in my local, one guy has to bring his wife (I personally invited her a commish) who will be seven months pregnant during August. He can kiss his season goodbye. The last little trick to do before the draft is a simple, but possibly deadly. As men, we know what makes us fart. For me, it is any rich Italian red sauce or corn mush. Load up on that food 90 minutes before the draft. Then let nature take its course. We all like a good fart sound, but sometimes those puppies just wreak. Upon entrance to the war room. take a look around. First look for the food table, the toilet, and the draft boards. Ok, let me say here if your league doesnít use draft boards, buy them. I use the draft boards from fantasy central for six years and they are the greatest help. No bad writing, no unable to read as they are going on computer. If you use them once, you will use them again. If you are a non-smoker and you draft, look for an A/C duct or a window. The last thing you need is smoke in your face. If you are a smoker, sit next to a non-smoker. Make sure you have plenty of room for the draft. There are certain things to say during the draft. Never be happy with any pick or your draft slot. Never say "good pick". This is a tough one to do. Most people say something good when they make a bad draft pick. I say just tell them the truth. When that person picks Kordell Stewart with the 5th overall pick, be honest and say "Youíll be living in hell with that pick" or "Is that pick to make your wife happy?". They wonít know what to think. Bluffing just doesnít work anymore. Another tip is to tap your pencil on the table in a regular beat. Talk about torture! Another tip is when someone is taking too long, then tell them to hurry their sorry fat ass up! Be mean about it. Make them want to hate you. When drinking with a straw, slurp! When eating, make sounds. This is a simple distraction, but yet be a man and a pig, so be a rude. If you are rude enough when you eat, those wives will be even more pissed off and those husbands will hear it more. If you donít smoke, and a lot of wives will be there, bring cigars to smoke. The husbands are dead. When making your pick, there are a few things you can do. If you are prepared, then the easiest things to do is make quick pics. Make your picks within FIVE seconds. This really isnít hard to do. Since you will be prepared, you have one player or two already in mind five picks ahead. So, more than likely, you will have one pick already in hand. A quick pick shows the confidence. Men hate that in other men. A GM sweating with each pick will hate this. Donít say anthing when you pick, just speak a tad louder, stronger and say the player quickly. After six or seven rounds of this, those GMs will start to get scared. They will wonder every pick they make whether they are screwing up and giving you a steal. This is one of the most effective things you can do. After the draft is all done is when you can brag about your picks. Show the other GMs your depth. Show them what they will be up against. This is that time and not before, providing they can stay around long enough without be dragged out by their wives. If you follow all of this advice, I can guarantee you will have a good draft. If you don't, then at least it will appear to all that you know what you are doing.

Just one question about the draft order - does Parisi take checks or does he still work on a cash-only basis? Either Corless or Mr. Braun can answer this. Thanks, Herr Foxx
