    Can we push everything back 2 hours on the 5th? I'd prefer to not have to get up at 7am for the offseason stuff.

    Lol, it would've been a great time for me just a few years ago. Not so much anymore though.

    9am CT or MT? I was referring to MT in my post.

    LOL 9;30 AM CST is even better!

    If I were to wake up at like 7 in the morning for offseason on a video game, my girlfriend would definitely make me wake up early for other things in the future...

    We have done at night.....seems we get more transfer failures, especially during recruiting...plus it takes several hours.....Saturday morning goes smoother..

    If we can get recruiting done in advance, then a work night is an option....seems to go better, less failures...

    I like to put in time on the team schedules, post so that guys can comment, before we move into the regular season....so that takes 24 hrs...

    We'll see how the next week goes....having the final advance on the weekend...has worked well.

    Since these steps go so quickly, we try to get everybody together and just get it all done right then instead of taking a week to do it all. So it's not possible for just you to get it done at night. We would all need to do it one night in order for that to work(not that I'm opposed to that).

    We only do a 7 a.m. advance for regular season, 48 hr. adv...or off season when we pick up the pace....7 a.m. start, then 9 p.m., that day is the next one....

    Also a couple of guys asked if we could start later on Sat....I am fine with that....we started earlier last off season because the weather was better, people wanted to have sat. to do some things

    To clarify, the only time anyone other than LeatherHelmets would do something early in the morning, is on a Saturday when we advance through the offseason. If the offseason comes up on a weekday, then it will be at night.

    ;).....another pt. here and an important one, is that this year an off season advance can be one of great frustration...loss of files, transfer failures...one step can take 30 minutes, even though everyone was ready in 15...commish has to quit, restart the game or leave the OD, then reenter...

    I was in a league earlier this year, Aug...in one advance, lost everything, we had to restart the league...

    Recruiting seems be the critical advances....especially at night, when everyone is online...servers are jammed...thats why we like to get as much as the recruiting done in advance of the full off season advance...and then going on a Sat. morning the servers have less pressure....yet we still had a couple of transfer failues on the last Sat. adv....

    I work nights from 5 PM to around 1:30 AM... so I would not be able to make it to a Thursday night offseason.
