    Hollcat, do you want into my league. It's looking like it's going to be NL only. Draft is Wednesday at 6:55 eastern.

    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.

    Hollcat: I've had terrible experiences with those leagues. Someone goes out of town or doesn't check his/her email and then everyone has to wait for a whole day. That was the case with sandbox.

    If people can't be present for this live draft, they have the option of pre-ranking.

    Yeah, I've usually experienced more headaches coordinating a slow draft vs. a live draft. Pre-ranking is a fairly good cure for those not at the draft.

    Cool. Glad to have you in. The draft starts at 6:55pm, how early do you go to bed? Are you saying you might miss the end or the whole thing?

    I'm up to four, and we're going to stick to NL only. We'll need at least four more and can take more.

    Guys, I had to run to for some unexpected medical tests today and when I got home, I discovered things had filled up pretty quickly. The only Evening Draft that was still open was Friday, March 14th. I feel really bad about this and am really sorry. I've went ahead and set up the league, those of you still interested, let me know.

    Ugh, that time filled up before I could complete things. Best I could do was February 27, 11:00 PST (2:00 PM EST). I'm really sorry about this guys.
