Welcome to the KRFL website.
The Knute Rockne Football League was founded in 2001 by Jim Doyle, who served with distinction as our first commissioner thru mid-2003. The KRFL is a 24-team league that simulates the NFL using the Action PC Football game available from Dave Koch Sports (dksports.com). We have our own rookie draft, our own free agency, and our own salary cap and player retention system. Our 24 members have many diverse interests, but they share one common bond, the love of NFL football. For further information or to apply for membership, contact the KRFL commissioner.

Rookie Draft Begins MONDAY - PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE
by: MarkB - Wednesday 03 June 2020 - 16:59:59
The 2020 KRFL Rookie Draft will begin at 9am EDT Monday June 8.

The Rookie Draft website is at http://www.aaroncraneinstitute.com/football/apcfb_rookiedraft/
The draft instructions can be found at http://www.aaroncraneinstitute.com/football/KRFL_Draft_Instructions.htm
Both links can always be found on the KRFL website in the upper left hand corner..

Everyone is still registered from last season (or in Jim's case has registered). If you forgot your password, let me know. I can't delete it for you allowing you to re-register for the draft site.

Once you log in you will be able to set up your Player Priority List. PLEASE remember to set AutoPick to 15 minutes under GM Options if you are going to use it to pick.

Schedule:
After the first round, the daily draft schedule is two rounds per day. The first round will start at 9am EDT and end at approximately 2:45pm EDT.
The second daily round will start at approximately 3pm EDT and end at approximately 9pm EDT.

PLEASE NOTE that other than the 9am EDT start time ALL OTHER TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE. As we found with prior drafts, the draft software tends to run a bit ahead of schedule and if someone has their autopick set for less than 15 minutes, that only makes it run faster. So please be aware of this.

2020 Rookie Draft Calendar
----------------------------------------------------------
Mon 6/8: Round 1
Tue 6/9: Rounds 2-3
Wed 6/10: Rounds 4-5
Thur 6/11: Rounds 6-7

PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Most of the software bugs we've experienced in the past have been fixed. One new bug was created. These are not deal breakers and if you follow these instructions, we won't have any issues.
>DECLINE PICK - NEVER, EVER click Decline Pick. If you do it will wipe out other team's picks, stop the draft and cause the Commissioner a lot of work to recreate the draft. So do not ever click on Decline Pick if you see it next to your pick or anyone else's pick.

>AUTOPICK TIME under GM Options. PLEASE log into the draft website, go to the GM Options tab and set "Turn on AutoPick to After" to 15 minutes. Please do this even if you do not intend to use the autopick feature. The software has a tendency to randomly reset it to 10 minutes, so please check it each time you log into the draft website

>UNSKIPPING A PICK when Auto Pick is turned ON. If your pick is skipped, and you click UNSKIP next to the pick to "unskip" it, be aware that in testing I experience that if you have Autopick turned On and you have players listed in your player priority list, the software with make your pick IMMEDIATELY when you click Unskip. If that is not your intention, uncheck AutoPick under GM Options (which turns it off) BEFORE you click Unskip. That will allow you to manually select a player to pick.

>MOVING PLAYERS ON PLAYER PRIORITY LIST - When clicking the double arrows to move a player to the top of the priority list, in testing we've experienced a bit of a lag in the software. Be patient, the screen will refresh in a few seconds.

--------------------------------------------------------
I will monitor the draft as best I can. Email me if you have any issues. However, be aware that I am working during the day, including doing some work for others at their desks who have had hours reduced because COVID-19. So I may not be able to response to your emails immediately.
