    I just realized I can't make the draft on Wed at all. My wife and I are finding out what we're having Wednesday evening, so I can't make it. This really sucks though because like most guys the weekend(Sat/Sun) is the best time for me to be available for the draft and now some of us have to suffer because its been moved to Wednesday. Only days during the week that works for me is Tues and Thurs, as far as the draft because I attend the draft for all 7 picks.

    If 8 is fine an you can make both I ask you vote 8. Shaun started a new poll obviously (not entirely sure why) but this one doesn't mention some of us can't make the 7pm start at all and that isnt pointed out in this one. For someone flying by and just voting real quick who could actually make both they might pick 7 due to this. Myself and Antcap are two I know for sure who will have trouble.

    Some of us are in a situation in which we may not be able to make the draft at all if we start it at 7. Please be understanding of that. If you are picking 7 because you want an extra hour of sleep, or you are excited and dont want to wait another hour to draft , I think those are pretty shitty circumstances knowing others cant draft at all at the expense of your selfishness.

    I wake up every morning at 4:15 EST to go to work and I often find myself staying up to START a game after 10 PM because its the only option for my opponent to get a game in. Obviously, going to work on less than 4 hours sleep is not fun, but its a sacrifice to make for the better of the league.

    If others are saying they are unable to make the draft if we start at 8 then thats a different story, but I have yet to hear that.

    Both choices are pretty bad for me. With two kids and being central time zone, 7 est or 8 est is tough. That is dinner/bath/bedtime. I went with 7 est because its easier for me to break away for the draft while they're in the bath tub than it would be at 8 est, which is bedtime....my kids would notice if I wasn't there reading a story...lol

    I voted 7 because it was earlier but for no other reason. If 8 works for most and helps some guys make it who couldnt at 7 then I change my vote to 8...hope that helps.

    So after reading this, I definitely came across a little too strong and do not want the people that already voted and was unaware of the circumstances to feel like shit. It was intended for those that have not voted yet, and dont care either way. I was simply trying to bring it to those people's attention that there are a few of us out there that may not be able to draft at 7, so if it doesnt mean that much of a difference, please vote 8.

    Note to Self: Do not post on TMFL Forums after having fight with wife on phone...

    Yea wondering what was wrong with it. I know 8's were leading when I went to bed lastnight.

    But yea guys I'm with ant and kindly ask if you are indifferent to either a) not pick, or b) pick 8est if it doesn't inconvenience you. Majority rules (which is why I had a separate option to the indifferent voters in my poll).

    My beef is with EA, because of the damn servers I'm going to miss the draft. I have been able to attend every draft since I've been with TMFL, never had a problem with Sunday. But since a good amount of us were unable to connect to the servers Sunday was a no go. Unfortunately this Wednesday I have a pre-arranged engagement that is more important than a Madden Draft, so I can't miss it. Please get this damn draft over with so I can get over it, LOL. This is why there needs to be a real draft board in the game, the CPU should make picks on availability and order of preference if you are unable to attend the draft.
