If we do it offline our commish should make a decision soon as Slestak and who knows who else has already started setting up their rosters for the autodraft. I don't want to see them waste any more time.
Prime evil of Kaiju Big Battel is very mysterious and expensive doctor.
I was looking forward to a live draft, but when someone posted that, at a minute per pick, the draft would take 5 hours, that snapped me back to reality. That's a little more time than I want to take. I've always done autodraft before, so that's cool with me. The message board thing sounds impractical to me anyway. Has anyone contacted brick about this discussion?
I just wanted to help all off you with some thoughts.
I have been running the DVDVR leagues through yahoo for three years now. We started doing all are drafts live last year for Football. And let me tell you - it is the greatest thing ever. Nothing can beat doing the live draft. The little chat applet contained within the draft applet allows you to trash talk the entire time. Especially when someone takes Fred Taylor's groin 5 round to early.
When doing the math - a live draft always looks long but with people auto-picking and with people using less than 90 secs each time, it speeds on by. I think our longest draft length was 3 hours.
I STRONGLY encourage anyone who will be using auto-pick to prerank players. Yahoo's rankings are comical. I mean as of right now they have Ricky Williams in their Top 10 and not Marvin Harrison or Terrell Owens and that is just plain wrong. Plus, they overrate defense.
Anyway - that is the end of my rambling now.
If one or two people are still looking to join a fantasy football league comprised of wrestling fans. Email me (one of them there fancy Slash features will point you to my email - I think) I have a couple of spots left in the two DVDVR leagues. All we ask is that you actually manage your team - as opposed to certain people whose names start with Dean and end with Rasmussen.
As a Detroiter and Lions fan, getting optimistic about anything is rather impossible. About the only praise we're allowed to say for the team is "At least we're not Cleveland." That said, Millen's done a great job.
