    With regards to OM's comment above:


    I'm really in favor of switching to skype group chats instead of utilizing party chats for offseason. I can never hear anyone and only pickup parts of conversations. Skype is better than phone quality chatting and it's absolutely free. All you need is a mic. This will pick the chatter back up to the levels of lore. The last two offseasons were snoozers.

    Some other leagues do this and it works out well. Plus, while you are on the laptop, you can update your recruiting classes as we go along. Maybe blog/twitter style if you have ever seen ESPN's recruiting page.

    I'll have to pick up a mic but i'm down.

    Edit: I do have the skype app on my iPhone but have never used it. I guess now is a good time to start.

    No I suggested something that won't work for the intention I suggested it for. lol. You need to go back to bed, Sanders. hahaha. But to answer your questions, yes. I've had the entire team of commissioners and management in on a chat once. Everything was clear. You can also type text into the 'chat room' if that is what you want to call it.


    Good point everyone, there is a skype app that is free for iphone/android phones. Although I prefer the computer. All you will need to to DL the program, setup an account and make sure you have a microphone. I use a combo mic/headphones (like those for gaming) that I got for ~ $8 at walmart.

    Aww well, I know its tough to regulate what the wife spends our money on... the concept is kinda intriguing, but its just a big Itouch, and I think they charge too much. But then again, I am also an anti-apple fanboy so, I guess I am a bit biased...

    sounds good to me, its pretty simple. All you need to do is start up the app, plug in headset, and wait for a call from Drifter.
