Man that sucks, but it is just another example of why a live draft is better. No computer screw-ups with friends and beer.

I'm underage, man ;)

Well, that sucks. It ended up just autopicking the entire thing. And, I didn't get Portis. I had Ahman Green on my queue because I didn't expect Portis to fall and I didn't want them to accidently give me Alexander...oh well. I guess it can be argued Green is better than Portis.

Periodic thing, not to worry. Usually happens late night/early morning. But I guess in preseason they thought Sunday afternoon would be okay. Good luck in that draft Sweetness. ;-D
Sucks for you though, ducks fanatic. :-t
Although, I'd be plenty happy with Ahman over Portis, IMO.

I'm pretty sure most people here would argue that Green is better than Portis.

I know this sucks, but yahoo generally does a bang-up job of providing the free service. I think right now, they're probably being a little overwhelmed. I would assume this would be their last year of free service. With the overwhelming participation, this has got to be a current losing venture for them. Hope they can hold it together for the year. ;-D
If there's anyway you can hold off your draft for a day or two, Sweetness, it might be a good idea. Things don't look too stable today.

Eh, they get tons from major sponsors of its Fantasy, just like the baseball side which is sponsored by GMC. But any suggestions for a good site which isn't too expensive just in case of next year? If my draft can't be done this is garbage.

I had a draft at 5pm cst. I logged on 15 minutes before and got the server message then started freakining out . I kept refreshing for 14 minutes before I finally got in, with 32 seconds before the start. Most of late comers got in before the 1st round was over.

Bulger Green

LT Dillon Bennet C.Brown

TO Coles Wayne McCareins Lelie A.Davis

Franks

Elling

Denver

Just in case you were wondering.
