CBS Draft Room... how good is it?

Postby Bloody Sox » Tue Feb 05, 2008 5:51 am

We've been doing live in-person drafts in my main league for the past few years, but we're having a tough time pulling it off this year and I think we might have to go online to do the draft. I've used the Yahoo draft room a bunch of times, but my only experience with CBS' draft room was for football this past season, and it was a NIGHTMARE. The site kept hanging for a bunch of guys and I kept having to go back in and undo picks and such. A few guys got screwed, and I really don't want that to happen again for this baseball league.

Thoughts and opinions on the draft room in CBS? Is the baseball one any different than football? Think it was a one-time glitch in my football league? Have they made any improvements? Thanks!

I've done several football drafts there the past few years with no major issue.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

As long as everyone updates their java, it should be fine. Slower computers might need to be right-click refreshed in the draft order section if they are hanging.

You can always do a practice round or two and see if anyone has major problems. Then you just reset it.

I love the draft room. ;-D
Be excellent to each other.

Thanks for the confirmation and suggestions. When we had these problems, we tried everything - updating browsers, Java, etc. - with no luck. Maybe their use of the mock draft room will uncover any other glitches prior to our draft. Thanks!
