      Anyone have an objections to a THURSDAY draft? Not this Thursday but A Thursday. The only nights I know I have off every week are Thursday nights. If people absolutely can't do a Thursday night I can request a different night off from work if I have to.

      I'm in class on Thursdays so it would depend on what time we held the draft.

      Thursday is fine with me.
      Usually after 7:30 EST is good

      I'm in class from 3:40 PST - 6:30 PST. So Thursday may not work for me.
      I haven't done ESPN Fantasy anything... can you rank players and have auto draft from your ranked list?

      Yes you can. IMO the ESPN draft is more user friendly than the Yahoo setup.
      The draft would probably be at a time to accommodate eastern and western time zone. Maybe 10EST (7 west). something like that.

      If it were around 7 PST, a Thursday would be fine with me. I usually get home around 7:15 so I would miss a round or two at most and I am fine with auto drafting my first few picks.

    8. 02-08-2009 06:53 PM #383
      I'm good with 10EST.
      How long does it usually take?

      With 13-14 teams, which it looks like we will have, this draft is going to take 2+ hours. I don't know how much support you are going to get for a 10 EST draft.

      Will the draft really take 2 hours?

      Ok, how about this for the draft? We begin at around 8 or 9 EST so east coasters can be awake for the late rounds (where many believe leagues are won or lost). West coasters will need to auto pick the first few rounds but will be around for the later rounds.
      What do you guys think about that?

      haven't sent the email yet. I'm just waiting to hear back from a couple people. I think today will be the last day for waiting. I just figured a lot of people were probably away from computers over the weekend.

      Any nights after 10pm EST is fine with me. Any night but Wednesday before 10pm is fine too.

      Each person usually gets 1.5 to 2 minutes per pick. With 14 teams and 22 rounds or so, that's alot of time. Of course alot of picks won't take that long, but autopicks sometimes drag out the whole timeframe and the later rounds get pretty slow when the pickings get slim.

      I agree. A 9 EST starting point should work for most everybody. That gives West Coast until 6:00 to get to a computer and East Coast a chance to be done before midnight.

      Time works fine for me. If possible, please not March 26. I'm getting married that weekend, and family should already be in town. I'll get serious grief from my fiancee and parents if I skip out on family time for a fantasy draft.

      haha. Congrats. I was thinking we would do it as close to the start of the season as possible. That way we know who's playing where and who's hurt, who won't be ready, ect.

      Schedule the draft date asap then. Not only should we get the time we want, but we'll all be able to settle upon a date to do it. I assume like in Fantasy Football, draft times closer to the first day of the season fill up fast.
