I mean i missed my first pick because i genuinely thought draft was later on but the most time i have spent on a pick was 3.5 hrs (My 2nd pick). Most of my picks have been in a matter of mins. It feels like only a handful of us are on top of things.

Of course if this is problematic we can go back to a generic live draft which breaks this leagues tradition


The "6 chances" is something I came up with. Maybe I didn't explain it right. it is more like if you missed your pick, say pick 2.01. Others will continue making their picks... and if by pick 2.07, you're still missing. I would make the selection for you. This way, you'd get penalyzed by missing some higher ranked players and also the team would remain somewhat competitive because you still have a 2nd round pick. The team needs to be somewhat competitive in case we'd need to find a replacement manager. It's more enticing to take over a team with better players. That was my thought process.

In the rotokeeper league I'm in, the commish is using the 24 hour pick only for the first round and then it'd go to a 12 hour time limit. We could do something similar for next year. I'm open to any suggestions/ideas improve the drafting process.

Really? Is my English that bad? I thought it made sense... well, to me anyway.

In any case, I'm all open for suggestions about the offline draft.

Pork chop has about 30 mins before his time runs out on 7th round pick. Instead of picking for him, his 24 hours for 8th round pick will start and if he does not get on in that time, we will figure out what to do from there.

He is tied up with work...I forgot if he said he was traveling or working in a mine. (I have two drafts going on..its all a blur)

If anyone has issue with this please post. Tks. On behalf of Pork (Sorry folks)
