I've still gotta vote auto on behalf of myself, my sister, and u2popmofo. Arizona doesn't have daylight savings time, so for all intents and purposes, I am on West Coast time. Not to mention I am coaching football and not getting home until very late in the evening. My sister also has a 45 mile commute, plus picking her son up at school. It is impossible for either of us to participate, no matter what time it is. It's gonna be too late for some, too early for others.

So there's three votes for auto right there. I don't care if auto drafts are for losers. I want a fair league with a fair beginning.

I'm not even in this league but you have to go with the live draft. Skip work, do whatever it takes. It's fantasy football, your job can wait. Plus it's a lot more fun to make fun of a person when they take Marc Bulger in the 2nd round.

Live drafts are a lot of work. It is definitely not fair for those who have to use the draft bot.

Why don't you create two groups then? One group can do their live draft, and the other group can go off on their own and do an auto one.

Actually, it is:

me, heartland, Hewson, JessicaAnn, WHA for auto (right now)

Chiz, Headache, DaveC and STLElevation for Live.

Hardly a quorum, but the voices not heard would probably be pissed if suddenly there are four teams that are CLEARLY better than the others due to the live draft.

A suggestion to the Live drafters...is this the only league you are in? What I am saying is, LIVE might work for a few of your buddies, but we are talking about 20 people spread all over North America...I believe we are in five different time zones with very different schedules.

If we do a live draft, I am going to DEMAND, that it fits specifically into my schedule (and I encourage everyone demand it). If it doesn't, I say we do Auto. And I think that should be the same for everyone. The current live schedule doesn't work for me.

Don't forget to add mofo and my sister to the list.


Skip work, do whatever it takes? I don't think telling 25 kids that football practice is cancelled because their coach has to go draft her fantasy football team is a good idea. That's not gonna fly with the kids, my athletic director, or my boss. I prefer coaching a real team, but that doesn't mean my fantasy team should get the shaft.

I'll be playing Firestone, where Tiger just won the NEC tourney last week, that day. Needless to say I am not going to give that up to be in front of my computer for a FF draft. So, I guess I'm for autodraft.

In a live draft, "Pick" won't make it to the 2nd round cause Chizip will snatch him up in round 1. I mean c'mon Chizip even thinks Mike Martz is a genius.

Once again: Auto

you just like saying bulger... hehe... bulge-r...



i despise autodrafts with all my heart... but it appears as if that's what we might switch to. i'm not sold on that yet... because frankly, if you just take some time out to sit down and do a good job of pre-ranking, then it makes no difference wether you're there or not. and i don't mean two minutes... i mean a good half hour to an hour going through the players on the list. after all, a live draft would take up to an hour to complete...

so while i'm teatering towards switching to an autodraft, for now... it's staying live.

the tentative time for the live draft is now september 1st at 10:15pm eastern time... which gives everyone on the west coast time to get home from work, eat dinner, shower, take a shit, watch sportscenter and still get in front of the computer in time to draft. for now, it's staying that way.

I will be traveling at that point, so I am strongly voting for the auto draft.

Headache, give it up.

frankly at this point i am considering giving it up... closing the league and letting someone else start a new one and run it with whatever rules they chose.
