    Silly Viking

    How many times can someone viking before it gets to be counterproductive to the draft?

    It's always going to be a problem....unfortunately, we just have to deal with it as best we can.

    The South Divisionís draft is moving at a slower rate due to vikings. As a courtesy to the other teams, those who know that they wonít be around to select in a timely fashion should PM a list of potential picks to the Commish and/or a proxy. However, this hasnít been occurring and the draft slows down big-time.

    Thus, I suggest that the current draft rules be amended to include the additional rule: Only one viking is allowed. If more than one viking occurs for a team, that team forfeits its next round pick.

    Thoughts? Thanks.

    We just need to get through one more round and the clock is cut in half. That will speed things up.

    We can't just change rules midstream....we have to go with what has been agreed upon. I understand the frustration (since I'm drafting in both leagues).....but the clock reduction will help.

    And I'd never vote that more than one VIKING equals a forfeited pick. That's just unfair. The problem could be as simple as someone's internet connection being down....I know I've had that issue come up in the past, and there's not much I could have done about it.

    I can understand things happening beyond your control and in the grand scheme of things, the CFFL is minor. But, maybe for next season, we can add a rule that no more than 3 Viking picks are allowed? Afterwards, you forfeit your turn to pick.
