It's that time kids.
Looks good Shaun. I need a bit of a Madden break to focus on some scouting and recharging for season 2 v2. Looking forward to the google chat for the draft.
We will likely have to use Skype. Turns out Google Hangout has a user limit of 10.
How do they do those massive google hangout sessions then? Just one person is doing video and the rest are just asking questions? For example I think Obama did a google hangout once.
Skype hasn't been the easiest to manage, was hoping for a Google solution.
Beats me...maybe my info is wrong.
No you are right. I see this as a solution...
Something we can test...
Looks good. Mentioned this in Out of Town, but I'll be unavailable for Week 17 and Wildcard Week. Have already put myself on AP. Will be back in time to play whoever in the Divisional round.
1/20 6 PM Draft Time.
NFC Championship Game starts at 3 PM and wont end until most like 630 ish EST.
AFC Championsship Game starts at 630PM.
Whats the chance of us starting after the first game at 7 rather than being glued to the game and trying to pick?
Whoa... Totally agree with Anthony. I mean, the Championship games are pretty big deal. Any chance we can compress everything one day and do it on a Saturday night?
You are proposing we start at 9:30 PM? You know some people work first shift right?
If the decision on the 20th is set, I was proposing more on the line that we try to start it in the 1st quarter of the 2nd game and not the 4th quarter of the 1st game as that could be very distracting trying to watch that finish. If we start at 7, I think we could knock out the important rounds early in that game and through half time.
Is Saturday night not an option? If not... why?
FWIW I dont have any issue doing our stuff during a football game. There's enough time to make accommodations if you absolutely must watch and all that.
Easier to say when the Bills arent in the playoffs...
Not true. We live in a modern world with access to a million different ways to get the entertainment we want.
There is nothing like watching a game live. I could record it and watch it later, but it wouldnt be the same if I knew the outcome before hand. There is no way you could keep the outcome of the game a secret during our draft with the sports talk that is bound to happen.
This is going to be impossible to crowdsource. Whatever time we decide on is fine with me.
It doesn't matter to me. I probably won't watch the Championship games anyway. I figure to appease the first shifters we should try to be done by 11 or so though.
We will start at a reasonable hour. I personally don't care if it is Saturday or Sunday.
For guys like me who have watched nearly every televised game, missing the championship games suck
If Saturday is an option Im all for that.
I put a poll up. Go vote.
Not sure if this would be necessary for your needs, but a potential solution to move up your draft day would be to incorporate the FA periods into one day. Set time deadlines for each period and advance the CCM at those times during the day/night. For example, we will choose one day for FA and open the first phase in the morning with advances to the second and third phase in the evening. We do the same with scouting/draft/rookie signings.... all in one day.
