Ideas for a chatroom for a draft?

Postby chillpony » Wed Mar 18, 2009 6:37 pm

Hey all,
I am the comissionwer of a 12 team Yahoo league. The draft will be live online, however, just in case I'd like to set up a backup draft room in case things go goofy for some reason.

Any ideas? A free room would be a huge plus, and a room with the ability to somehow have a top 300 list we can edit as we go, etc.

If not I have good faith in Yahoo but I'd hate for my league to get messed up somehow.
Thanks in advance!

I've used Google docs for live drafts and they've worked great. This is the first year Yahoo has the features we need to run our draft (i.e., keeper and traded picks), but Google docs worked nicely for us up until this year.

Simply create a spreadsheet, enter keeper info and traded picks, share the doc with your league and you are good to go. I always like to color code each team so it's easy to see traded picks.

You can see our final results from last year here. We even had two supplemental picks after the 10th and 15th round that we award for second half prizes. With all the colors it's almost a work of art. Um, a fantasy baseball work of art, anyways.
