Any other season I'd be down for some auction drafting, but not this year. It's going to be all we can do to get two snake drafts in before Christmas.

Well, one of the reasons I mentioned a live draft was due to the time factor... ;-7

I assume both of the drafts will have to be live. I think we've all done enough slow drafts here to realize it's almost too late to start them already.

This is getting ugly. I have 8 drafts in 10 days, starting on the 14th. 5 are unscheduled. !+)

Initial response was strong but we hit a wall -- been recruiting to fill quota. Will send out more details by EOD.

Guys, if this is going to happen, it needs to happen. We need to start talking draft times, at least for the Champions League. We're looking at maybe a ten day window to get this done before people do their holiday things.

A few questions:

1. Do we know who the 12 members of the Champions Division are?
2. If so, would you like me (or another member) to try to schedule the drafts?
3. Do we need to consider only doing one league/draft as a result of time constraints?

We are out of time. I already have drafts scheduled next Tuesday and Thursday and I know many of you have drafts as well. This either happens now, or there won't be an Octagon this year. The season starts on Christmas. Nobody is going to be available to draft on Christmas Eve. Stating the obvious, this means that we have 8 days to draft. There's no way we'll be able to schedule one tomorrow, so we're down to seven days. Will someone please take some kind of action here? If not, will you give me the go-ahead to try to schedule a draft (drafts)? It would be a damn shame to not have an Octagon this year.

I say we do the champions league and maybe do one deep league for the qualifier league with those who have commited. An 18 or 20 team league would certainly keep things interesting for those folks trying to qualify and the best and most dedicated owners would probably come out on top.

For scheduling the Champions draft(s), I've got drafts scheduled already on Sunday (7pm CST), Monday (7:15pm CST), 2 on Tuesday starting @ 8pm CST, and Wednesday (9pm CST).

Saturday late afternoon/evening, Sunday morning or afternoon, 9pm CST on Monday, 7pm CST on Wednesday, or sometime beginning 7pm CST Thursday will work for me for the Champions draft(s).

Man, the pregnant wife's gonna be in a bad mood next week... :-o
