    Folks, I need to know what are the best times for a draft. If you cannot make the draft, the league will autopick for you. Normally, I do better if let Yahoo draft for me, so missing the draft isn't a huge deal as far as being competitive all season.

    Please vote (MULTI CHOICE) on the poll.

    All Times are GMT-5 (Eastern Standard Time).

    I'm traveling that weekend, so only the first and last times work for me (possibly the 7:00 on Sunday). Of course, given history, it's not clear autodraft wouldn't do better than me making my own choices.

    I prefer live drafts because they are fun and I can choose my favorite guys. But in truth, the autodraft always picks a much better team for me.

    We just can't out think a computer. Least ways I can't. :MusicBigGrin:

    Now there's an understatement. You couldn't out think a Commodore 64 with its power cord removed.

    Looks like the time I picked (Fri) isn't very popular.

    Thurs or Sat folks? Would it help the people on the WC if we moved it to 10:00 PM EST? Let me know. I want to have this locked in no later than tomorrow night.

    Raxer, Estonia is GMT ???

    10:00 EST is 5 AM for me. Sometimes I have to wake up ( work, of course) 6 AM anyway so to get it done before I go to work is actually ideal.

    Sometimes I wake up at 4 or 5 AM. Just to feel the pain.

    Thursday at 9est works best for me, I just know Friday night won't. That's my vote, but autodraft is a fine alternative too. If the preselection does as well as my stock picks lately....you'll all be in good shape!

    The Thursday time won't work for me because I have school. Friday or Saturday is best for me.

    You know...not one person in this place wanted to hear that. You know? I mean, that just wasn't necessary. Do you understand me? YOU are vulgar and disgusting.

    Is that all you talk about in Cannuckia? Really...that's just gross. Gross I say. I've had it with you. Obviously it is time for another Jammer thread. But this one will finish the job!

    What? I thought we were in the trust tree, in the nest. Are we not?
