With the league almost full... 2 more slots people! It is now time to start looking toward the draft, which will be time consuming. there are several options as to how we can do this draft:

1. Live draft, which is run through fleaflicker.

2. Email Draft, we would select our players via email.

We could also use the message board for the draft but that could get confusing.

But I would like to have everyone decide how the league is run so now is the time to vote on the draft, also any suggestions/ ideas that you have are valid. Except Katie's...

I say we have a live draft and people can check out when they need, you can rate and players for the computer to draft for you.

The more I think about it the more I think you are right. Live draft is probably the best way to go simply to avoid confusion and such... The better question is what day does everybody want to do the draft

For days Monday and Tuesday is best for me they are the only days that I do not have my daughter and it would be almost impossible for me be active on other evenings. I also suggest starting around 6-7 EST

It's always a crap-shoot for me, but with pre-ranking, it shouldn't be too big a deal

So I just set the following as our date for the draft,

Tuesday March 13, 2012 at 6pm EST

So a couple of ideas: we could wait till the following week when ST is just about over OR we could push it up a week. I prefer waiting to later so we can see what injuries may happen or what players are showing promise. Let me know either way.
