Hopefully we have more "night owls" signed up here than "day people" to explain the slow start.  I am surprised, considering everyone waited for this to start for nearly a week.  Thought everyone would be chomping at the bit to make their pick in the 1st rd.  This just shows how one owner can slow things down for everyone, especially in "offthe clock" mode.

By the way, I am going to start a commentary thread where y'all can go and talk about picks that have been made, evaluate everyones draft so far and so on.  Have fun!

tonyvoss....where are youuuuu?
2/6/2014 2:51 PM
C'mon guys...try and be ready huh?  We've been waiting for this to start for a week now.  Didn't I send enough sitemails keeping everyone up to date?
2/6/2014 3:00 PM
If we don't get thru 15 picks today, we're just gonna stay off the clock until Monday.  The schedule I sent for Friday will just be changed to Monday.  If somehow we can pick up the pace and get thru 15, it will stay the same.  I'm headiung out to run some errands...tomhanrahan is in charge
2/6/2014 3:03 PM
gonna post my QB picks now, please give me one of these guys after tony picks:
1. Drew Brees, or
2. Tom Brady

This really sucks when you don't make your first pick until near the end of the first round and you are ready to go now, but it looks like I have to wait until Monday.

The last *off the clock* first round draft from a progressive league with owners who have been in the league for over 10 seasons went like this:

8 AM Friday
8 AM Friday
6 PM Friday
8 AM Saturday
7 AM Sunday
6 PM Sunday
3 PM Monday

3 1/2 days to get 7 picks made...............so sit back and pop a cold one, this could take a while.

as long as we are really off the clock, I really have my doubts is if we we get to pick 15 by Monday morning.

you might has well schedule picks 4-15 on the clock for Monday. so all of use who are waiting will know before hand when we have to pick or proxy Monday night or Tuesday. it also gives those up to 15 a hard deadline if they don't want someone jumping ahead of them.

for all we know there are a half dozen people right behind Tony ready to pick right now but have no idea of when their turn is going to come up.

Im guessing that at least 9/10 people in this draft will go qb/rb with first 2 picks. Im curious to see if giving the top quarterbacks first dibs on the top recieving talent will give them the advantage in this league. Would have preferred a ABBABA DRAFT instead of ABABAB but who knows rules are already set and maybe there wont be any advantages.
