Dear anyone who has been through a live auction draft,
My keeper league's first year draft is in exactly two weeks and I am begining to panic
! We have planned to all get together and have each of our fourteen (maybe sixteen) teams fill their 25-man rosters through a live auction draft.
I am very content with our draft environment. We have found a really nice conference room that has pleanty of seating and a plasma screen tv, that we can hook a lap top up to (FOR FREE!)
. My dilemma is the potential length of our draft
Afraid to go through the math again, my buddy and I were thinking that drafting 350-400 players auction style could take a very long time
. Luckily, every member of our league has set aside the entire day for the draft, but I do not want to bore these guys to death.
How much time should I realistically expect our draft to take?
With the money pool already set and many draftsheets already made, I would like to avoid shortening the draft and wrapping things up with a snake draft at all costs
As we can all only meet on this one day, do we have any good options besides filling our entire rosters in one sitting?
I do not want this post to get too long, so I will save my other questions for now.
Thanks a ton for any help
