#$%*&! Couchmanagers!

So couchmanagers has started charging to host a draft there. We would all need to buy memberships at $2.99/mo. :-P

It definitely runs much quicker there, you guys mind paying? Do it here for free and bump our post counts? Anyone know a different free site?

We can buy a custom draft at MDC for $23.99. That's less than $36. Is it any good? Anyone used it? oscar will gladly pay the $23.99 if we want.

:-P

I'd rather not pay, especially since I might be on autodraft most of the time!

MDC is nothing special. Doing it here is fine by me.

If we do it here we need to get rolling. Everyone ready to start drafting? Any conflicts we need to work around? Without that bloody queue we would need to PM picks around a good amount.

I'm not sure how he did it or how much trouble it was, but in the 123 Innings league Bwanna set up each round like shown above. And when you clicked on an owners name you went directly to his PM. No muss, no fuss.

My only issue is my NZ trip. I leave on 11 March, and come back 27 March. At various times I will have to have internet access for work, but it won't be around all the time.

I have the same issue with two other drafts, so will try to work something out.

Two thoughts. Can you contact people in the US from NZ by phone without it costing a fortune? Any thought of having a backup pinch drafter who could make your picks if time is expiring?
