Well that was fun, but it took closer to 3 hours.

I dont know about online auctions drafts like that. Too fast to even look at your cheatsheets. I know they can extend the bid times for each player, but bidding one at a time like that and a draft will take all day.

I think it would be better to make 2 submissions per manager, and do bidding in parallel like for a slow draft. if the bid time for each player is 15 minutes, that would still make for about a 3 hour draft, but at least you'd have some time to think.

Other then that it's a pretty cool site. The interface isnt bad but it could use a few improvements, like being able to filter for relief pitchers.

There were some bugs that popped up here and there, like the last 3 sold stas would eventually turn back into the first 3 sold, and there was nothing you could do to change it. There were also some funny occurances with the end of bids -- I think a few ended prematurely. Also the +1 bid button is dangerous. I clicked on it when a player was at $16 and by the time my command went through, I had bid $25!

I like the idea of online auction drafts that dont take weeks, but I think the concept needs a little more work.
