    Live draft date/time

    As I mentioned in the invitation e-mail, I've currently got the draft scheduled for 3 PM EDT on Saturday 8/7. I know that's an odd time, but I wanted to pick something accessible to everyone, east and west coast alike. Is that good for everyone or should I change it to something else?

    That's generally a very inconvenient time for a Saturday... but I'll try and make it if that is when we have to do it to accomodate the most people.

    I thought that might be the case--you're probably not the only one, Hy. Let's get a few other suggestions; we can change the draft day/time very easily.

    OK - A later evening time is more convenient for me (8PM EST or after), but lets do our best to make it as convenient for as many as we can because it will most likely be very difficult to make it convenient for everyone. Right now I don't have anything on my schedule for 8/7, so I would do my best to make time to be there.

    No reason it has to be a weekend, either. BUt if we get 10 teams (likely), and 20 players per team, that's 200 players to draft--it could easily run 3-4 hours or more. Also, I subconsciously scheduled it for that Saturday because I've got another draft the following day for another league I'm in. We could do it a different weekend or early some weeknight (though that could prove difficult for those out west.)

    I gather that we will meet in Ventrilio to do the draft?

    Actually you do it online on Yahoo.. but yeah, we could all meet on Ventrilo to verbally assault one another and curse them when they draft the player you were going to pick next.

    I think it would enhance the experience some...

    Since we are going to be online for a while it would be great to talk back and forth, and yes, talk smack as well..... hehe...

    Well, if that Saturday works but evening is better, I could probably bump it back to 6 or 7 PM Eastern...

    I've made a change to the time...I bumped it back to 6:30 (still on Sat. 8/7). How does that work for everyone?

    Bump--the live draft is still scheduled for 6:30 PM Eastern on this coming Saturday. Is this good for a majority of folks?

    If it's not, I need to know soon so I can reschedule. I'd like to have it prior to Thursday the 12th--that's the kickoff to the preseason.

    If this time works and you're in the minority who can't make it, you should go through and pre-rank your draft picks--you can participate in the live draft that way if you're not logged in. You should consider pre-ranking anyway--you'll only have 3 minutes for each pick, so when you're on the clock isnt the best time to do research.
