I saw we make the draft unlimited and the waivers locked until after preseason

Edited poll to accommodate this option- had been 3-8 in favor of 5 rounds, as I recall.

If we have it unlimited, what's going to be left on the WW? I think you keep it at 5 and we go forward after that.

Agreed - plus if the draft is unlimited, it could drag on into the pre-season when WW gems sometimes come to light and instead of everyone having a shot at them on the WW, they would go to the person OTC in the draft.

I voted 5 rounds. The way folks were trading 5th round picks, I assumed all along that's what we were doing.

It's not truly unlimited though - once you pass, you pass.

So just to confirm, as long as other managers have all passed and assuming I have the roster space, I can keep drafting 6th, 7th, 8th round etc. picks, correct?

Last year's pre-waiver adds was a bit of a fiasco. That led me to the conclusion that, once the draft ends, we go to first-come/first-serve, at a to-be-determined time.

As opposed to blind bid just start first Wed after draft?

First Wed works for me. In retrospect, blind bid, I think, is fairer. Hate to be stapling to their computer/phone at particular time when that can be avoided.
