    OMFL OFFSEASON DEADLINES/SCHEDULE AND DRAFT TIME VOTE

    Ok guys, here is the plan. We will keep the same 5 day advance for the playoffs, but we are pushing all playoff teams to get their games in as fast as possible. The playoffs is always a chance for owners to lose interest and either quit or get left behind. I will allow 5 days because some owners cant do more than that, but I am asking all playoff teams to TRY to do more than that.

    As soon as the OMFLBowl is done we can start to put physical dates on the schedule above, but the posted schedule is the plan.

    The draft is the only other date that has to be flexible. If we advance to the OMFLBowl on a friday, theres no way to do the draft during the week, it would have to wait until the very first available Saturday. Make sense?

    The draft will be the first Saturday (given that it is enough time 5-9 days after the OMFLBowl) after the OMFLBowl game is done. This way all teams have enough ample time to schedule it in. The draft time will be voted on this thread, so please vote.

    We are figuring out a system on how to make the draft run more smoothly. It will probably be a all-in-one type system, with the board members having their own separate talk system. This way the board can talk during the draft and handle situations and the whole league can be in one forum to make their picks and talk during the draft via typing.

    So this is now open for discussion and tweaking if needed.

    thoughts?

    Let me know if you guys plan to use the mumble application so I can go through and make sure it is working all right.

    I did vote, however I won't truly know the best time for me until my weekend work schedule is out for that week. Best chance for me is the later the better, but don't want to hold up the league.

    joe we done that last year and it gets very confusing. We are just going to do 1 room with everyone (type only) and then a voice chat room for the board so that we can talk and type at the same time.

    I think we stopped it at 5 rounds last year didn't we? That was perfect...7 was going to be too much

    We did 4 last year and it took 4 hours. Was a pain to pull people in and out of mumble rooms but it worked as well as could be expected given our first effort.

    With Google docs and a year of experience with doing the draft I think it will go much smoother this year.

    I was there, just had a hard time connecting to mumble...and that is right, we did 4 rounds...it took forever, main reason was communication I believe. I think 5 rounds with the new communication format will go smoothly.

    I usually work saturdays, so the later the better; of course, I could take the day off, haha. It, at least for now, looks like the later time is winning the poll

    man i work until 5pm on saturdays. 5pm pacific. the sooner we can find out the exact date the better because i will have to ask to leave early which usually requires 2 weeks notice(which i know i will not be able to provide this time).
