Rules for trading picks/players DURING live draft

Postby Cabezón118 » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:02 pm

Running a 14 team keeper league and this is our first year conducting a live snake draft where all members will be present at one location. Wanted to see if anyone had some rules they used in their league to allow trading of picks/players during the draft (time clock, shots of alcohol, etc). I feel it's a fun aspect of having a live draft but at the same time don't want it to drag out the draft too long, even though draft night is the greatest night of the year!!! Lol

Thanx ahead of time for the help!!!

Just had my live draft, and it happened a few times where a trade was being worked out and took forever. As commish, I just announced a 10 second pick clock once it got to be what I felt to be too long. If they missed the countdown, the next person would be able to pick.

The only time I had to do it, the two owners shook hands when I got down to 1.
