Stop having an *off-the-clock* first round??????
If people sign up for this kind of league they shouldnt need *messages* telling them the draft started or that they are up.
foxx, lets be real....if this is this bad doing an off the clock first round, how bad will it be when half the owners get skipped over the first two or three rounds of an on the clock draft???
The off the clock 1st round is because I want to get the draft started immediately after I finish the draft order and getting page one set up. I could have finished that on Saturday and started the on the clock draft in round one on Wednesday. But I was not going to start the schedule on Sunday or even Monday. I believe you have to give everyone fair warning you are going to start. If you don't, you are going to be halfway through a draft and have 10-15 owners skipped for the first two rounds who say "screw it, I'm not in anymore". Then you are screwed totally with the only real option is going back to the start and re-filling in the classifieds all over again.
No, as frustrating as this is, an off the clock component is really the only way to start these until everyone gets up to speed and on the same page.
People...if you are not going to be able to pick when it is your turn, PLEASE send at least three other owners a proxy list of guys you would take if you could do it yourself!!!
