That being said...if we continue at the pace we've set the last couple days, we aren't going to finish in time. 3-4 picks per day aren't enough. I understand the 24 clock, but I think of it more as a fail safe in case someone goes to sleep, wakes up late for work (unable to check the forums), and isn't able to make a pick until they get home. There's nothing wrong with taking advantage of it when you need it, but I think a complete lack of urgency could end up straining us for time in the end. ;-D


agreed. not to mention, i would like to have a week or so before the season starts to talk some trade and get my team in order.

taking 12 hours to pick each time is just not acceptable to me.


Maybe we need to shorten the clock either at some predetermined date or round.


or people can just stop taking forever to pick

he also left his picks in the cafeholics noob league. apparently this league doesnt matter as much as the others.


Agreed, seems a bit strange that he didn't leave them for this one too. I know in the Brushback it was pretty easy to leave picks as we'd only just started, and maybe he didn't want to tip his hat (so to speak) to any of you guys in this league, but even so...

Exactly.

A very important family situation came up and I anticipated having internet access at least long enough to make a pick if it came up. I'm sorry that I didn't leave a pick with someone, but I would have had to leave a list of over a dozen guys by the time I left. I'll make my pick in a minute. Let me check off who has been taken.
