Case 1 has to complete draft before case 2 or vice versa

Here's how I propose we handle that confusing scenario...

I will randomize the lists and post them here. I will then create their own threads and the titles will be:

2010 Don El FB GB Case #1... and I'll post the OFFICIAL list.

2010 Don El FB GB Case #2... and I'll post the OFFICIAL list for THAT case.

I'll PM a MOD and if the threads don't post tonight, then I'm sure they will post first thing tomorrow.

Now, it's not up to me to keep the threads from getting confused. That is YOUR (PARTICIPANTS) job/s. I will jump in as need be to help sort things out or referee if things go awry.

Is this ok w/ everyone?
...as far as the start of the draft.. I like sticking to plans. Case #1 can start 6:30PM EST on Monday. I will try to be there but it's not REALLY necessary. As long as a person makes his pick and PMs the next 2 people in line, it should go quickly and smoothly.

Case #2 lets say we start at 9PM EST? If that's cutting it too close and the first case is dragging, we can push it to 6:30PM EST on Tuesday?

So if you post the randomized, why can't people just start picking ?

Good Point....I don't think he is going to stop people from drafting, but no one is going to be pressured into making a selection until the draft actually starts. Am I on the right track?

I believe that is how it usually goes. It should give some time for the participants to trade/sell spots. As a courtesy to the others in the break we should probably finish the trading before the draft so things go smoothly.

I will not be recording the random. I will do it LIVE and will wait until I at least get a few viewers.

As explained in an earlier post, I will randomize the lists and you guys can figure out what you want. But I will not START the Draft until MON, or MON-TUES. As stated, I want max participation to make it quicker and I think it's fair to give people at least a 24-48 heads up to try and be here for the start.

In an ideal world, this might be the case. But just like the REAL draft, there can be negotiations all the way up until a person posts their selection. I will try to referee or try to help things along if this starts dragging.. but we won't know until it actually occurs. This is one of the messy things about this type of GROUP BREAK.

Ok... now for randomizing. I hate dragging this out, but I'm getting yelled at here for hogging the computer. I'm willing to stay up and do this around 10:15 or 10:30ish EST? thoughts???

I will not be able to be on either Monday OR Tuesday night due to work/softball games.

Can't you just run this like a regular draft?
