As stated in the rules (you know, the ones you read before you signed up :) ) drafts take between 8-10 days, worst case I have seen is 15. So sit back, relax and go with it, its fun. If draft day is great, draft week is BETTER!

I fully understand that people have lives outside of this league, but how do you go on the site when it's YOUR PICK, and then leave without making a selection? wthf?

How do I know, you ask? Well at the bottom of our league page, it says how long its been since each owner was on.
Rebel was on 20 minutes ago. Other people have been on without selecting for longer than that. I don't get it.

OK, now I look like the D-bag, because dude just made the pick, but seriously, Rebel wasn't the first, and I doubt he'll be the last.

Some remote devices allow you to look but not touch, so you can monitor from a phone, but not draft. And it shows up as logging on.

Got it. That makes a good amount more sense; thanks Pat, and thanks for moderating this madness.

Lets all take a deep breath. These drafts always run a little slow and can take a week or more as Pat said. If you're jonesin' for the draft, why not jump into a mock draft or something to get your fix.

Also, if anyone wants to PM me their cell phone number I'll happily text them when they're on the clock. This has worked in a couple other shark community leagues I'm in to great success.

I like how Pat keeps regulating us :wink:

anyway, i am thinking that Baustin will pick at lunch. He has been on the site since his turn, he is probably just waiting for a break at work.

Mike is OTC.

I was about to make my pick this morning when I drove out of reception. During the day I'm at the mercy of whatever hotspot I can find on the laptop.

yes I'm aware of the ppr. Just sucks that I have 3 receivers now. Well atleast I'll have no conflict. Except 2 of them have the same bye week
