    Post your choice here. The order is as follows, to be reversed each round.

    1 Ingromius
    2 KopteinKC
    3 Hal
    4 1800-World Cup
    5 Clanblue
    6 DoctorJones 24
    7 Captain Splarg
    8 Outback Maverick

    Try to check back somewhat often so that we keep it moving over the next couple days.

    Also, use the following format:

    "Round X
    Pick X
    Ingromius chooses _________"

    You're up Ingromius...

    Mark made a good suggestion: that everyone "subscribe" to this thread so that you will be notified whenever a pick is made.

    Let's pick up the pace. LOL

    Mav,

    I bet you are drooling at who is still available and you with the next two picks.

    Let's pick up the pace a bit and get this draft done.

    Seeing as it is already 1:30 am in London, I'm guessing that by the time we get to our 3 overseas guys, this round may halt anyway.

    Volunteer to serve as surrogate drafter

    If anyone wants to send me their draft proposals, I'd be glad to make their picks in accordance with their wishes.

    Suggest you provide me, by round, which position you want to draft that round.

    Suggest you provide me, a priority listing by position which I would use to grab the best player available at the position you want to draft in that round.

    I can give managers 15 min to make their picks themselves, and after that I'd become their surrogate drafter. This offer is meant to get all our teams drafted in order to participate in the league starting this Saturday.

    I know some folks are travelling on business or pleasure this weekend. Send me: haljudijones@earthlink.net
    the position by round and the priorities by position and I'd be glad to make your draft call per your wishes.

    Hal

    Re: Round 1 Draft Delays

    To be fair Ingromius' pick was at 4:40 am my time, so 3 hr 46 mins wasn't bad for me. I mean I made my picks before I went to our work staff meeting this morning :D

    Come on Mav, make two picks so Splarg can go to bed!

    Re: Volunteer to serve as surrogate drafter

    Just wanted to point out that the season actually kicks off on Tuesday, as this weekend is a International Friendly date.

    I'm definitely going to need Hal to continue my picks for me, as I'm off on a boat trip tomorrow.

    I was going to suggest the rest of you perhaps get together in the BS chatroom Fri or Sat to finish any remaining rounds.

    I assume we are running into time zone issues.

    Is Clanblue asleep? Where does he live?

    Anyone want to trade up for my draft spot?

    Since we have so much time on our hands, and since I'm the 3rd to pick from now, anyone want to make me an offer to swap draft pick positions?

    I might entertain an offer to give up the next pick for your next two picks and you also get my pick in round 15.

    Just bored and stirring the pot. LOL

    Another trade idea

    I wonder if Ingromius would be willing to trade me Van Nistelrooy and his picks in Round 4, for my next two picks.

    This would give Ingromius picks 14, 16, 17, and 19.

    The possibilities are endless.
