Okay, we have some options. First is this:

a) We all come to a basic agreement on a draft
b) We don't

If b, then:

a) Divide into two "conferences". We have 16 (or will with MDPlanner), so we could do two 8 team divisions. Sadly, there couldn't be interconference play... (Yes, you can have 16 teams on Yahoo) Yes, we can have week 17 unused, so the winners could play. I'd have to announce the winner and player scores, but hey...

So, here's what we do. Pick one, then SOUND OFF on the board so we know who voted. NO WISHY-WASHY, "I'll just do what everyone wants" stuff... make a pick. If we see a big division, then we can decide if we split into to conferences.

Live! As live is meant to be...

I liked how we did it last year, and I did all the work. With the "Viking Rule" it'll go faster...

I like the VIKING rule, it could be VERY entertaining and keep things moving. :-D

I'd prefer the slow live draft here....with the viking rule.....but it needs to be suspended (the viking rule) on the weekends, where I'm (and many others) likely to be nowhere near a computer.

I agree with this - with the proviso that if I'm not here Mastiff can be my "auto-drafter" :)

I chose the live draft with auto draft for those not in attendance, but I am down with the Cyburbia draft w/ Viking rule if that is what the people want. I am pretty excited about this rookie draft thing too.

I agree. IMO, the live draft works well with the viking rule, but I prefer that the rule be suspended on the weekends. Also, I prefer that the league function without a split into two conferences, in order to allow each team to play against each other.

Okay... fair enough. But the time gets split. If Team A picks Friday at 2:00 pm EST, and the suspension begins at 5:00pm EST, then when it picks back up at 8:00 am Monday, they have nine hours to complete the pick.

And the commish will be very strict on this... at the end of the 12 hours, the message will be "Team A has NOT selected, Team B is now on the clock, and has until _____ to make a selection. (Assuming I'm awake) If not, I'll note the time, and who is up, and how long they have.

I'll probably set up a generic private message to go out when it's your pick. Then again when you miss a pick.

Remember, once a pick is made, the next team is up, and their time starts!

That works fine with me.

I’m going to go with the Viking Rule style. Although I think a total live draft would be fun with the pressure and all, the Viking Rule will probably work out best.

I'll go along with the vikign rule.

If I know that I will be unavailable when my pick is likely to occur, I will send in a list of players to pick from.

My new job means I can only really participate before work, at lunch or after work from my computer at home.

Don't forget O.J. Simpson! He'll really slaughter the competition...

I'm still with the live draft but it looks like the Cyburbia live draft with the "Viking Rule", um thanks?" is going to be it. You know with a live draft, we can be done a couple of hours.:) I think you can even set time limits for each pick to be made. I just don't see why it would be too hard for anyone to do it this way. For me, I will have to go to work or my inlaws to do it but that does not bother me.

I understand this.....but my summer weekends (and most weeknights for that matter) are not spent around a computer, so doing through Cyburbia works far better for me.....and I imagine for many others that are going to be playing this year. We start drafting plenty in advance of the start of the season.....should not be a problem.

You do realize that has nothing to do with your FF team, right? :-}
