Re: League of Reds Nation -- the ultimate dynasty
How would you guys feel about starting the draft this weekend? We need to get this thing rolling to make sure we finish the draft before Opening Day. We have 30 rounds of drafting to accomplish in about 6 weeks.
I propose we officially start the draft at 8:00am on Saturday the 27th. The first pick will be "on the clock" starting at that time. The first owner will have 10 hours max to make his selection. Hopefully we can get through a couple of rounds over the weekend if everybody checks the site regularly.

Here is how I am going to determine the draft order:
I found a website that will randomly generate the draft order and email it to all the team owners. This is a way to guarantee that the draft order was indeed generated randomly.
I am entering everybody's email address into the program. Your email will not be spammed. If you did not allow your email address to be seen on the Yahoo league site then you will not receive the email. You should get the email soon.
We can go ahead and start the draft process Thursday or Friday, but the 10 hour clock won't start until Saturday at 8:00am. This means if the owner of the first selection is ready to make his pick before Saturday he can do it, then the 2nd owner can proceed. We might me able to get through a few picks even before the timer is in official use.
If you are going to be away from the Internet for long periods during the draft please let me know ASAP. We can try to arrange a way for you to keep in contact with me or someone else in the league to make sure you get to make your picks in the allotted time.
