    As per BobJr, we have the opportunity to draft on Wednesday night.

    So, stick with Thursday, or bring it back a day and get it done Wednesday?

    Discuss why you want it changed or not changed below. Also, if you can do BOTH post that here as well.

    What about people who fixed their schedules for a draft on Thursday? I just don't agree with changing it the week of the draft..

    Either date works for me, but if people moved schedules around to accomodate the draft, I think we should probably respect that and keep it on Thursday;

    Yeah, I voted Wednesday too, but either day works for me. My thought is that if moving the draft would mean someone would have to miss it, after scheduling around the Thursday draft, we shouldn't move it.

    Then again, since I can't sign free agents, Im pretty fucking bitter and screwing people over this Holiday season doesn't sound bad.

    Bah Fucking Humbug.

    Maybe. But majority had already voted unanimously Thursday earlier on. Some people make schedules to work and could have cleared their schedules already for Thursday. It would be one thing if we had this poll last week, but you can't expect to change the date 2 days before the draft..

    My vote is Wednesday... I have to work late Thursday and would have to "remote" in through someone to draft for me if it stays Thursday...

    Ok, please change my vote to Thursday then.

    I don't think its fair to change the draft time the week of the draft. If we can change it and no one is affected, then Im totally fine with it. If people have scheduled around Thursday we can't change draft times 72 hours before the draft starts. Just not cool.

    It doesn't matter what day we do it, honestly I don't even know the time. So, I may miss some of it due to my sons' wrestling practice. However, it isn't about just 1-2 people. Wednesday, I don't have anything. So, I'm fine with it.

    Cole Copeland you missed what unanimously meant in English class lol. It's not perfect or everyone. Not everyone voted Wed or Thu. Some may find Wed easier now. My schedule got changed so Wed actually works perfectly for me now. However no day will work perfectly for everyone...

    This is what it is.

    Bob text me, at the rate we are going, we could do the draft Wednesday. It is no secret that guys want to get to that and enjoy the draft. Drafting sooner feeds that hunger and gets us to Week 1 sooner. So, instead of forcing it on you guys, we created a poll.

    Here is what the poll does.

    Most votes = Day most guys can attend. If you can do both, that can be expressed in the thread. If you can do both, you should be seeing which day is better for you and for the league.

    No, we are not going to hold the draft this day or that day because 1 guy is missing it, that has been known since day 1. We will go with whichever day is better for the majority and for the league. If we could pick one day that all 32 guys could definitely be on, that'd be perfect. That won't happen.

    No need to throw jabs at anyone... I'm sure I aced all of my English classes.. Now.. The only problem I have is were trying to change it 2 days prior to the draft. Obviously I'm not the only one who feels this way

    Nobody is trying to change anything. If we wanted to change it, we would've done that already. This is an option that is being offered to the entire league. People love options. It's like Christmas, or a brothel.

    I thought we already had a unanimous vote for Thursday on the last poll on this topic though?

    A poll that didn't have Wednesday as an option, where guys also stated they'd like to draft ASAP, they voted for Thursday because that was the majority, not necessarily what they wanted, and had guys who can't make Thursday either.
