    Downshifting the Draft clock....

    At some point we'll need to reduce the time for picks, in order to finish the draft before the season starts.

    My suggestion, reduce the clock to 6 hours in Round 8, and down to 2 or 4 hours from Round 12 on....

    Thoughts?

    Sounds good. I would stop the clock overnight though!

    From the flight deck, ladies and gentlemen, be sure your seatbacks and tray tables are in the upright positions and your seatbelts are securely fastened, we'll be speeding this puppy up in order to bring her in as an on-time arrival.

    (Yeah, it's been a long day ...)

    Round 8 sounds good to me.

    30 minutes to pick, starting right now.

    Seriously, I am for the NHPlanner's plan. Even if he likes the Patsies...

    I am for anything that would get this draft moving faster than it's already going.

    Ditto, although we're still a long ways away from opening day. It just sucks having to wait so long between picks.

    I am ALL for this idea. Starting with Round 8 would be fine by me.

    I saw in the South Rd. 10 thread that somebody was on the clock until 4:06 AM. I thought the clock was suspended overnight since we went to a 6 hour clock. Having to pick between 10:06 PM and 4:06 AM hardly seems fair.

    The clock gets suspended at night once we reach a 4 hour clock as pointed out in this post from the commish:

    Did the draft clock completely suspend after this morning?? No one has made a pick all afternoon.
