live draft software suggestions?

Postby awwchrist » Sat Jul 02, 2005 11:36 am

Last year things kinda worked out into my homebrew league's favor. One of our owners built a new home with a private movie room. 70" wide projection/hdtv...seating for 12.

So I arranged for him to host the draft and in turn, surprised my owners with utilizing his video set up. I purchased computer software that runs a live draft board. you can find it at http://www.fandraft.com. Installed it on a laptop, hooked it up to his projector and had a 70" video draft board for our league draft!

It mimics alot of what you see on the NFL ESPN draft. A running ticker with previous selections, teams that draft next and are on deck, automated draft clock, you can even selelct the music you want in the background. Import images for owner/team insignias. And of course a comprehensive list of every player at every position.

The thing is...it was great n all. But I don't know if it was because that was the first time I've ever got to do something like that. I've looked online (Google'd...etc.) and I can't seem to find ANYTHING else to tryout.

Any other commish's run one of these during their local drafts? Suggestions?

We all don't have Bill Gates as a friend and his personal movie room. :-b I google'd it and couldn't find anything but fandraft. It sounds awesome, and sounds like it worked great for you. I'd probably just stick with it ;-D

Draft Software

Postby AaronW » Wed Aug 03, 2005 12:50 pm

I've been looking for the same thing for my draft. Here's what I've found:

Fantasy Football Draft Board 2005 - Pretty basic, I wasn't impressed by the demo.

Draft Dominator 6.0 - This is from footballguys.com, and can be used for mock drafts or the real thing. It's very customizable and there is a completely usable free version.

FanDraft - Probably the prettiest draft software that I've found.

I've only used the demos of FanDraft and Draft Board. Draft Board is ugly and basic, I wouldn't pay the money for the full version. I'm leaning towards buying the full version of FanDraft at the moment.
