i seem to be on some auto-pick bs - Jets then Janikowski at 10th and 11th pick? I've been checking in on the draft every hour today, waiting.... just checked and my pick was passed over with some (fockin ridiculous) adp pick. adp for who, insane asylum patients?
this is cr@p
This bs/cr@p to which you refer is the well publicized and discussed here in the tank rule, that has been in place in the shark leagues for years, that if you allow your 12 hour window to expire you are picked for and therafter are placed on auto for the remainder of the draft.
You went on the clock at 10:54 pm. When 10:54 am rolled around and you had not picked (go look, you did not pick, despite checking every hour today), the auto drafter kicked in and shortly after that you were picked for. Then you went on auto. And, as has been said many times here in the tank, as well right here in the rules, this is what happened:
"After twelve hours on the clock a team forfeits it right to draft in that round and the missed pick will result in an auto pick being made in accordance with myfantasyleague.com pre-ranked autodrafter. In addition, the missed pick will activate the autodrafter and it will no longer wait twelve hours, and instead will immediately make each and every pick for the offending team. For the remainder of the draft, the offender must create pre-draft lists to have their pick be selected instead of the myfantasyleague Average Draft Position auto selection."
This rule is important and uncompromising. Without it, drafts could drag into the season. I would guess over 50 people are currently on auto, this rule is both necessary and fair.
Sorry that you view the fair application a rule to all players, long standing tank members and newbies alike, as cr@p. From here on, pre-draft.
