Just a thought for any leagues who really have a problem coordinating a time for everyone to make a live draft. I once played in a league where we drafted over a period of several weeks. The number one pick is made and sent via e-mail to everyone in the league. Then the number two pick can be made and sent. From there it just continues. At times you will hit a slowdown where the next person to pick doesn't check the e-mail for a little while but with plenty of time before the season starts it wouldn't be a big deal. Sometimes there would be several picks made in one day and others there might be a day delay. As you get closer to the season you can guage if the draft is going to be completed on time and start making arrangements for everyone to get online at some point to finish up whatever rounds you need to finish. With this kind of draft you have time to think over your next pick without everyone asking if you are still there or worrying about your connection failing.
Another advantage to this is you are not tied to the computer for three, four, five hours at once, all you have to do is check your e-mail a little more frequently and keep up with who has been taken and how many picks until your turn.
