When is the draft set to begin?

Is there a time limit between picks?

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?
I will post this info in the original OP as well so you guys don't have to look around in a million posts. But I still want to stick to the plan. Case #1 Draft starts at 6:30pm EST. I have not set a time limit (yet) and I already know that some members will not be there. I have about 3 PMs of AUTOMATIC SELECTION LISTS for some, so I will be there at the start. This is not like Bowman Baseball, there are not 200+ slots to fill. But... if case #1 does start to drag? It would be my opinion we start Case #2 a day later, Tuesday, same time same place. We still have over a week to go? I know it's getting closer and everyone is ramped up... but we need to settle down and GET THRU THIS IN ONE PIECE. Thoughts?

About 5 minutes away people... I never got a reply back from a MOD so we'll just have to make due here.... please keep things neat and orderly. I prefer a simple post, something like this.

Rudyjustinfarrell- Case 1 team 1 NY Giants

GOGIANTS77- Case 1 team 2 Buffalo Bills

etc......etc...

We'll play it by ear when 9PM EST rolls around for Case 2. Thanks and have fun.

Robert - After we finish case #1, at that point you will determine the status of case #2, right? Thank you.

Can we get you to run a list of what teams have been drafted? That way we won't have to search through the thread to find out who is available. Thanks!

Ok, just to be sure (Im a bit confused) Is the second case starting AFTER the first is finished? Or are we starting at 9 no matter what? There is no way this first case will be done with in the 2 hours, much less two days. Not complaining, just looking for clarification.

Not to speak for him but I think he's waiting to see how far along we are in case 1 so we don't have two drafts going on at once and confusing people.

I recommend starting the draft for Case #2 tomorrow. That will give people who are getting home from work NOW a chance to catch up, or people who have the late shift the morning to get things done. C'mon guys.. 24 hours won't hurt anyone.

I agree with Rudy. This also gives us a better chance of having case one done so we don't have two going on at once.
