    I voted for Saturday at 10:00 p.m., but will likely just rank my players and let yahoo/the commissioner pick for me.

    Yea I don't mind if it goes live but since there's very little chance I can make either I'm gonna vote auto for everyone

    Ha ha ha.....

    Something about a poll losing its effectiveness when there is a tie in the results..... So, just to be clear, even if we pick a live draft date, I can still opt for auto pick somehow?

    Yes, if you are not logged into the draft application, Yahoo will pick based upon your player rankings. If you do not rank players, they will be selected based upon yahoo's rankings.

    The more about think about it, I'm thinking autodraft is the way to go.

    As a note, I am fine with Saturday as well, I would just prefer Sunday. You should have put an option for either Saturday or Sunday

    To make it fair, there should be one more poll, the live date that wins vs. auto. God I hate auto draft. Might as well pull players out of a hat.

    I planned to do that.

    I think auto-pick is the only fair way to go given our roster composition. I'm pretty sure auto-pick will fill every slot before selecting any backups. So, anyone on autopick will take four IDP's and a kicker before backing up their QB, RB or WR's. (If anyone thinks differently, please chime in.)

    I would much prefer drafting live with everyone but that would be a huge advantage over those that aren't able to participate in a live draft.

    It will definitely be a scramble to adjust rosters once the auto-pick draft is complete. Does anyone know how the post-draft process will work?

    I voted for Saturday live. My second choice (and probably first in terms of feasibility) would be the autodraft though.

    I will more than likely be evacuated this weekend somewhere, don't know yet, so live draft is not likely due to lack of possible internet connection.
