    Maybe it does seem a bit ambitious... but I think we can do it. Especially if I set it up Saturday night...I think some picks could be made sunday night.

    And if you take a look at the Dobber Baseball League:
    2017 DobberBaseball League Draft

    We made it through 9.5 rounds of 10 teams picking so that is 95 picks made in 3 days.

    so if we had 8 teams making 12 picks that is 96 picks... so I think it can be done. And most of the guys in this draft are guys that were in the baseball league draft, and baseball is always tougher to draft than a playoff draft because here you only have to decide between goalie and skater, not 9 positions and 2 pitchers. haha

    I am already in drafts those two evenings... and one on sunday evening... or else we could have done it that way. I wanted to be part of one more so I decided to start this one to see if there is interest!

    It's only 16 teams. I bet we finish in a day.

    Honestly I'm not hugely on board for a fantrax draft, but I can be around decently often for an offline draft.

    Yup, that is what we are going to do

    I am thinking I will wait until Saturday and see if we can get another couple guys signed up. Then on Sunday I will email out the draft order using fftoolbox and then set up the thread and we can start whenever the 1st pick person is ready.

    Just an update...

    I am going to wait until Saturday to see if anyone else signs up.

    Then I am going to use the draft order generator with everyone's emails to set the draft order. Then I will create a thread for the draft... and people can start picking whenever they are ready.

    Lets try to get it done before the playoffs start on Wed!

    yeah i think more people will join the pools once the match ups are set and you can make a guess who will meet in the conference finals ect.

    True, but no one is going to have to draft until the mathcups are set. Just want to try and get it set up so that as soon as matchups are set, that we can get to drafting.

    The Dobber Baseball League was my first draft and I absolutely loved it. Went very smoothly and gave you the extra time to set up a large queue. It also went a lot faster than expected. I probably wouldn't have joined this playoff pool if it was run on Fantrax. I don't see what everyone loves about it, Yahoo is way better in my opinion. I was in a one year hockey league in Fantrax and I had a great draft, completely dominated the entire regular season but still couldn't get into it because I hated the way add/drops and the layout is. Barely made any roster moves throughout the regular season because of it, though I guess I didn't need to make many moves. Needless to say, I am done with Fantrax for good and totally on board with any Dobber slow draft haha.
