    Alright so I just got a new shift for work. It starts on Tuesday. I am going to be working the midnight shift pretty much. I start at 10:30pm and get off at 7am. Eastern Time. For the most part its going to be 5 days a week. Sunday night (Monday morning)----- through Thursday night(Friday morning). The means that Sunday through Thursday I will not be able to start any games after 8pm ET or so. With all of the user games in our league I could see this being a problem. I would love to stay but like I said not sure if it will work or not. So you guys just let me know what you think.

    I am just training some people and I dont want to have this shft for long but most likely its going to be a few months.

    Obviously I can't speak for everyone but there's no way I would be able to play you M-F.

    I hear ya dude. I understand and I just making sure before I resign. For the record it would actaully be S-Th because I don' go in on Friday nights. So i figure Sundays are a little easier for some guys, but thats still 4 nights during the week that make it tough.

    Well most people don't have as much of an issue with it I think. But it's hard for me to find a way to play before 8 central. Being in the same division kind of sucks bc we'll play every season. I think you should wait until it becomes an issue before resigning, but it's ultimately between you and Dylan.

    Maybe you can play after you get off before people go to work? Would you be ok to let users play the cpu this season if they can't get your game scheduled?

    I hear ya dude I am waiting because to be honest I want to stay. But since we were in the middle of an offseason I thought that if it most guys say that it wont work I could give you a chance to find a replacement. But if there is only 1 or 2 guys who will find it difficult to schedule games with me then maybe we can work it out.

    I would play after I got off for sure, but thats like 7 or 8am ET which may be hard for others. I am willing to try and make this work and maybe skip a game or two if need be. I just wanted to leave it up to you guys.

    I'm talking about people who get up early for work. We all know Blondy can't be pulled away from his wake-and-bakes.

    So I found out this midnight shift should be less then a month. Hopefully its not that much but I was happy that they said it shouldn't be long/permanent.

    Yea I wouldn't be 2 worried about it as most of us are pretty open scheduling wise. Worse case scenario is you have to get Auto'd once or twice in that month.
