Talking about Kidslik? I did a mock with him last year where he picked before me and he never PMed me to pick, I don't think he's an entirely responsible guy.

Pretty sure he was in N00bs last year and slowed the draft way down as well. I think there is a history here and not just a quick trigger.

I don't recall him slowing the draft a whole lot last year, at least, not more than anyone else. I think it's a pity he's getting booted, since it is a slow mock and impatience tends to rule, but this is just for fun. If people aren't having fun then I can understand why they would want to make a change.

I sent a PM to one of the Draft mods, they'll be done in plenty of time.

Like the cops say at a shooting : "nothing to see here move along" ;-)

You realize, of course, that this is not a mock... right?

Yeah, I did this last year. I also didn't get any money last year, so no money = all fun to me.

Thanks guys. That was a whole lot of BS in my opinion. I hate slow drafters as much as the next guy but that was uncalled for.
