What: 2014 OIL and OIL2 Draft Party
When: 1500 on August 24, 2014
Where: Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, Bricktown, Oklahoma City
Why: Why not?
Come join us on the second floor of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in Bricktown for the 2014 draft party. Be sure to bring your laptop, tablet, or phone to draft using the free WiFi. If you cannot make the draft, be sure to draft from home on the Yahoo! site.
Toby Keith's will give a free burger and fries to anyone with a military ID, and happy hour starts at 1500. That means half-price domestic beer for the entirety of our draft. So show up, head upstairs and look for the OIL banner. I hope to see you there.
Hangovers manager Adam Duffy and Arrogant Americans manager Justin C. Cliburn recently struck a deal with HelmetNation, LLC to produce official helmets for each team. They arrived today, and the men couldn't be happier. Each helmet features "OIL" above the facemask and their respective team names along the bottom of the rear of the helmet.
In honor of March Madness, the DBFA and the OIL are once again conducting an NCAA-style 64-player tournament to answer one question: Who is the most valuable player going into the 2014 season? Forget the debates. Forget the split-screen arguing. You won't see anyone yelling at each other here (unlike a certain four-letter sports network). We live in a democracy, and that's how we'll settle this argument.
MGL Commissioner and Visitors Section co-host Josh Hastings ranked his top 64 fantasy football players heading into 2014. OIL Commissioner Justin C. Cliburn turned that list into a 64-man bracket using BracketMaker.com. You may log into BracketMaker with your Facebook account or create an account on the site. Hastings's list is based on standard scoring, even though the OIL uses PPR. And players are listed as belonging to the team they play for right now. Things will change. But this is March, and we're starved for football.
You can access that bracket here, and make your picks. The winner will receive something from the DBFA store. The player who comes out on top will receive a letter of congratulations from the OIL along with memorabilia from the DBFA store.
The deadline to submit your bracket picks is Saturday, March 15, and the voting for individual matchups begins Sunday, March 16. Polls will be posted here for each round, and you, the reader, will vote on who should advance. So, without further adieu, here is your 2014 bracket:
