How are we getting 6 votes, when only 5 people are signed up?

Well there seem to be a few more who would join if the Draft was in August. And we need more to join to make that happen. Catch 22 I guess. Hey you Tibor, Bookie, 1)Sign up, 2)Vote to change the Draft, 3) profit!

Can't get there from here. Will have to wait till the whistle blows and I slide down the brontosaurus' tail.

Heh. You picked the one day in August I'm unavailable (Red Sox-Tigers at Fenway Park).

Don't switch again on my account, but for future reference you might want to get some sort of consensus on a draft date (or do the automatic draft) before you set it in stone.

Yeah, I'm at Fenway the night before and won't be back in Madison until that Weds.

Can't do Tuesday nights. If I'm the only one, I assume I can set up an autodraft. If so, I'll change my vote to the erstwhile consensus.

Whenever. You all have ability to go in a change the draft date. I get home at 6 most nights or would do it from work anytime late in the week. Weekends would probably be tougher to meet everyones scheduling needs.

So the six of us have to figure this thing out by tomorrow. Someone put in 8/20 @ 7PM as an option. That is a usual band rehearsal but they haven't been as usual so I'm willing to risk it. Anyone else got a date and time in mind they'd like to throw out? Figure it out here today and make it happen over on ESPN.

That was me, and then I decided it didn't need to be that late in the month. Honestly, I don't care when it is as long as it's not Tuesday nights.

I kind of liked the risk involved with going just before the preseason games. Sure making your picks with a greater knowledge of conditions on the ground would certainly lead to a better team but making wild guesses on who's gonna see playing time is a lot more fun.

My schedule is really fluid, so I can do most anytime. Can I vote for multiple dates, or all of them that work for me?

Right now we have 4 votes for 8/11, 1 vote each for 8/12 and 8/20. Without complete and total agreement the draft will be tomorrow at 6. Can we pick one and stick with it? Even if that means 8/11 it buys us some more time to throw around some dates.

Good work team. Our Draft is now set to 8/11 at 6pm. I know that still doesn't work for some of you. Go ahead and throw out some other dates.

Anyone come up with a better date than 8/11?
