Live Draft or Slow Draft poll

Postby moochman » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:04 pm

Time is short, but we may be able to squeeze a slow draft in if we all check in daily. When you vote try to list some days and times, weekends-afternoons/mornings, etc., when you would be able to participate in a live draft. Thanks

As much as I love Live Drafts, they are always difficult to match up with everyone's schedule. Nothing ruins a draft like a no-show or two also.

Voted. Fine either way, I like the live draft but working out schedules is very tough, slow draft is better, but if we have people not checking in, it can get as bad as a live draft with someone missing

I am all for the live draft. I really hate slow drafts and as you know, I complain all the time about them.

I just looked at the calender and if we go with 12hr time limit for picks we will not have enough time to get in all the picks before the season starts. If we start the draft on Saturday and go until sept 10th, that leaves us 50 days to draft. We also have labor day weekend in there were people always miss time, and I will be up north with limited internet access for most of next week. I know in a perfect world we should be able to get this done, but we all know how it works every year. Every year we say we are going to draft faster and it gets slower every year.

I voted for the slow draft before I read each reply. If there isn't going to be
enough time we should start throwing out some dates for a live draft or is it possible to just try to speed up the slow draft. ;-)

I am good with either one. I usually check in on our slow draft about 50 times a day LOL.

Live draft is fine by me if the interest is there and my time is fairly flexible.
