I thought there was going to be a time limit for this draft to move forward?

This is tough. We really didn't have a draft clock or schedule as payments weren't originally due until tomorrow.

The case is supposed to arrive tomorrow afternoon, right? What if we do a 2PM-7PM draft clock (10 minutes per pick) and break immediately following?

W need to get 30 owners who are 100% committed to this club, unfortunately, at this point that is not the case. We are relatively new, as frustrating as this may be we need to be patient.

This is a great point....I think its tough I impose an auto pick and give people too much crap when payments weren't even supposed to be due until tomorrow then to try and race through a draft. I know everyone is excited....I am too, but not everyone can be on to pick every 10 minutes. At least give people a chance to put a list together to send in. I bet some people have no idea the random was even done.

The random was done at about 2 et. I don't think it is unreasonable to start the draft now. We could draft until 11 et and pickup at 8 am et tomorrow morning. A 30 minute clock could be instituted in order to complete the draft and bust tomorrow night.

As far as the first pick, I think everyone would agree there is a pretty clear #1 pick. If the person does not want that team, I'm sure whoever gets his team would gladly trade.

I agree, but you never know - they may not want that team - they may really want what I would call the clear cut #2, and whoever picks #2 may not want the clear cut #1 ... SO for now, I am doing nothing.

We have time. There is absolutely no reason we can not finish this by tomorrow afternoon. Its just picking a team, and while I realize not everyone can be online all day - surely you can find the time within the day to check when you know you are part of a break.

Good point. Probably the right thing to do
