"See you all at 11 AM on Sunday!" usually means that I'll see you all on Sunday at 11 AM... Yes, the draft is this Sunday. Read the first part of this thread if you're unsure about how it's working.
Draft order will be determined on Sunday by a non-participating party that has yet to be determined. Basically, we'll just find someone in chat to pick for us.
As far as the transaction thing goes, I'm all for changing it, but the only way it'd get changed to unlimited if there was a cost per transaction. I made it 10 so that people wouldn't take advantage. 10 is plenty for the entire season if you're diligent. I didn't want to place a cost on the transactions, which would be the only other way to curb abuse, because there was already a 2 mil buy in. Of course, as always, if you can get a majority to agree on changing to unlimited transactions with a cost per transaction (probably in the range of 50k, which would then be passed on to the winning teams) then I'm all for it. If not, then it stays as is.
Hope that answers all the questions. :)

You can log into your account and setup up your selections, IE Round 1: K, Round 2: K (and then list the kickers in order of preference that you want them).
Scientists in Asia reported a drastic increase in shooting stars in the past month. After further investigation, it was found that Carson Palmer was just practicing his deep routes.
Astronomers were shocked to discover that most of the objects in our solar system's asteriod belt are actually rocks Carson Palmer threw into the air one day when he was 3.
Carson palmer doesn't throw interceptions, he does impersonations of 'Has Ben' Roethlisberger as an inside joke with the rest of the team.
On the sixth day God created Carson Palmer and that was good. And on the seventh day (Sunday) God rested so he could watch his perfect creation play football.
"Brokeback Mountain" is more than just a movie. It's also what Carson Palmer calls the pile of dead Steelers on his lawn.
Last season Carson Palmer threw the ball so hard to Chad Johnson, not only did it rip the emblem off the side of Troy Polamalu's helmet, it erased it from history! Which is why we only know the 'Stealers' as having the logo on one side of their helmet.
Carson Palmer did a tour in Iraq armed with only a football because he wanted a faster and more accurate weapon.
One time, Carson Palmer's future wife was trapped in her car during an earthquake while he was fighting supervillains. The ground opened beneath her, and the car filled with earth. She suffocated just before Carson was able to save her. In his rage, Carson specifically went against his father's wishes of interfering with the lives of normal men and threw a football around the world in the opposite direction of its rotation so hard that he sent everything back in time. When his wife was safe, he threw another football in the correct direction to get time moving the right way again. He saved her and they were later married. The directors of Superman based the scene in the movie off of this event.

To the rest of CB: Let's hear who you think will win!

One thing I forgot to mention-- Valiek will not be participating in the league due to some unfortunate personal matters. This, however, leaves us with less of a pot than we would have had. As of right now I'm undecided on what's going to happen with his team. I'm thinking that I'm going to pay his 2 mil, but I think a better option would be to offer the chance to "buy-in" to his team. This way I don't have to pay all of that, and you all get that much more of a chance to win. So, if you'd like to buy in you'll receive whatever percentage of his prize that you invested (i.e. you invest 500k, you get 25% of his prize). If you guys can think of a better way to do this, then let me know. I'm determined to keep the total prize money at 20 mil though!
Good luck today! :)
