Just to catch you up. The live draft is tomorrow at 8 est. This was established a while ago because without the cap we might never finish. I don't know how Patrick is able to sit in a room with 4 unopened cases of 09 Draft. It's just not right

Still tomorrow. There were people that could not make it and couldn't get a list together because of work, so nothing until tomorrow.

Cases are just sitting there staring at me. "Open us Patrick. You know you want to."

Guess I'm going to have to stop by the LCS and grab the last box tomorrow and bust it while you guys do the draft.

Maybe we should try something new, have you bust the cases, tell us what is in there and then do the rest of the draft

This is absolutely excruciating trying to get through this thing, will it ever end

Any way you guys think we could move the draft up to say 6 tomorrow? I would like to get the break started tomorrow night if possible.

I can't speak for everyone else, but he's not the only one thinking it.

For someone who has been in more breaks here than I ever will, I'm pretty surprised you chose to bail for two days (without checking email) in the beginning of a draft. It was a d-ck move to the folks here who were excited about making their picks over the weekend.

It took some serious stones for you to make comments about the speed of the draft when you're responsible for where we are today.

Sounds good to me, I assume you mean 6 EST?? Wonder if we will get any picks in before that, been kind of a slow day today

Seriously, where the hell are the people who are supposed to be picking today? Its not just Guru. I have pick #41, 51, 56 ... when I woke up this morning, I think we were at like #33 or so ... I figured I would get through all 3 of these picks today ... and I still have not made pick #41 yet.

Its getting a tad ridiculous now - why join a break where there is a draft if you are never online or available to actually make any of the picks??

Good question... 6 ET / 5 CT, and I'm picking from the office (or sending a list).

If it gets the cases busted sooner rather than later, 6 works for me!

this has really been the worst draft ever...we should really set some guidlines next time ....maybe between let say 11 est and 11pm est we have a 2 hour limit to make a pick or it goes to your list ...and everyone has to put in a list before drafting starts...this is just bad...

Doesn't matter, he hasn't been on since last night at 7. I am sure VC did after he picked anyway.

Would agree with you Omar, we have to set some sort of rules before we do this again, it has been miserable. I would say 2 hours would be fine, and if everyone submits a list then the host can always use that. I like the timeline as well, but this has been awful. 35 picks in 4.5 days, not good.
