Draft Day Logistics - Advice Appreciated

Postby ampant » Sat Aug 13, 2011 3:20 pm

Hi. Not sure if this is the right forum, as I'm asking for advice on running a draft instead of a specific player.

Typically in previous fantasy drafts they have been live online drafts where each manager logged in with their own PC to draft their team. This year I am hosting the draft at my house, and I don't think everybody is going to bring a laptop and log in (not to mention I am not sure about how my crappy DSL would hold-up bandwidth-wise). Also, online drafts can't be paused midway to go outside and barbeque and play some football, which is what I plan on doing.

I am looking for a MANUAL draft software application or website that doesn't require all managers to be online. I just want to enter the picks and display my monitor on the TV so everybody can see them. Anybody have any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks

You can spend anything from $5 to $500 to run an in hsoue draft. All comes down to waht you want to offer your league. I would simply google it and see what is currently out there. I haven't down a home draft in ages so don't know specifics anymore.

We use fandraft software. We use it for the same reason, to take a break and eat and then we finish our draft. The way we started was that the league pitched in to get it. Then each year we just buy the update. Check it out.
