We're still at a loss for when to start this thing.
If we do live, we're waiting until September 01 or later.
If we are doing the same as the football draft here, I'd suggest we start as soon as the football draft is over. That would help allow for Jesse's vacations and Scott's move.
I see tremendous appeal in a Yahoo draft. It saves me a ton of time entering teams after the draft is over. It gets done very, very fast and is over - no waiting on people for picks.
I also see tremendous advantages to the slower (than molasses in January) type of draft. It's good for the newbs, we get more time for the last signings to occur and possibly pick up some more information. Starting this weekend is early, but there's not that much strategy in the first couple of rounds. We're in no hurry at this point. We'd have about five weeks to get it done.
If we do go this way though, I want people to indicate when they will be online or if they'll have difficulty getting online within a certain time period, say 8-12 hours. I might instigate a rule that gives the highest ranked yahoo player available if someone isn't online and hasn't made their pick in the alotted time. That would of course be suspended and not enforced with proper notification of a delay(Jesse's vacation and Scott's move are, of course, excepted). Jesse and Scott could also email a round or two of picks to someone during that time if they were so inclined.
So, let's vote again:
1. Yahoo one night mad house draft
2. Brent's getting older by the day slowly JD online draft
Pick one. No abstentions.
