According to the website, the draft order will be determined randomly by Yahoo approximately 30minutes before the draft.

I can definitely post it in here as soon as it is available.

You should be able to access the live draft from the league page at Yahoo.

30 minutes before draft time a very obvious link will appear on the league page above the list of teams and it will say "Your league is drafting now - enter live draft".  You click that.  Then another window will open up.  Across the top of the page you'll see 12 flags in a horizontal row, if you put your mouse arrow on each flag, it will have the random team name that drafts in that spot.  The flag that is drafting will be lit up in red.

Next thing down on the page will be Yahoo's list of O-ranked players.  To draft a player, put your mouse arrow on his name and left click once, then to the lower right of the list click "draft player".  Be very careful here that the correct player's name is lit up.

The 1:30 goes really fast when it's your turn, so you kinda gotta move quick, because if you don't pick your player, Yahoo will just give you the highest ranked player available according to their rankings (which can be very screwed up) unless your preranked their list, regardless of what positions you need.

The draft page has now been activated:

Here is the order that was randomly generated by Yahoo

1. Airballs
2. Thug Squad Ballers
3. Dunking Wookiees
4. Canuckleheads
5. TheBestTeamEver
6. The Famine
7. Snagglicious!
8. YAO MING = MVP
9. The Zods (Rob's poor luck holds out  :()
10. Montreal EZ's
11. Minnesota Muskies
12. really rottens

Drafting is front to back, back to front  so for example: #12 picks #13, #11 picks #14, etc.

Head on over to Yahoo and click on the "Enter Live Draft."

Jeff, double check your catagories vs what you said:

FG%, FT%, 3's, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, TO  but instead it's FG made, FT made, 3's, OReb, DReb, AST, STL, BLK, TO

Mess up a bit. :-\

EDIT: Not My bad.

Here is the list from Page 1:

The league will be scored with a rotisserie scoring system for ten categories:

Field Goals Made
Free Throws Made
3-PT Shots Made
Total Points
Offensive Rebounds
Defensive Rebounds
Assists
Steals
Blocked Shots
Turnovers


These are still the same as when I set up the league.  Did I get something wrong?  :-\

Hmmm....I think last year we had % instead of Totals...really FG, FT and Points are all going to be the same while % is a little more selective
