the online LIVE draft is currently scheduled for august 31st at 6:15pm EST...

if you cannot participate, or don't want to participate, in the live draft, simply pre-rank your players and the computer will draft for you, just like it would in an auto-draft.

it's the best of both worlds... live draft for those who want to be there, auto for those with lives.

i agree with the live draft.

20 teams is a lot and it just means talent is going to be EXTREMLY thin. ive been in a 20 team league before ,you just have to pay a lot of attention and scour the waiver wire a lot for whomevers hot lately.

Headache, please reconsider switching away from a live draft. People posted some pretty valid reasons about why it's unfair earlier on in the thread.

A live draft is absolutely fair. If you can't make it, you can still prerank your players pretty much exactly.

I disagree.

When you draft live, you are able to fill spots according to what you can see that you need. If all you have are prerankings, you just get the best available whether it's what you need (according to what the computer has already drafted for you) or not. Besides, with 20 players, pickings will be slim and no one can prerank enough players to go the distance for such a large draft.

For those of us who have jobs and live in the Central, Mountain, and West Coast time zones, we don't even get the CHANCE to participate in the draft because it starts at 5, 4 or 3. People are either working or driving home.

I don't see why people would be opposed to making sure it's a fair start for everybody.

Indeed.

I believe the majority of the people agreed with Heartland here.

I really feel that a CLEAR advantage would go to the three or four individuals that would be at the live draft. No matter how well you pre-rank....it is better to be there and see the quality that is left.

Again, if you go back in this thread, it seems as if the majority wanted the auto-draft.

what if i just changed the date and made it later in the day, once everyone except maybe west coasters, and who really cares about them anyway, is already home from work, thus having that not be an issue?

Live draft is absolutely the way to go. Stick to your guns, Shannon.
