If the consensus is to keep the start date as is, I wouldn't mind going with something like we did last draft, allowing people to make their picks before then if they choose to but not enforcing time limits until after the start. That way we can get this going without penalizing people expecting/wanting it to start later.
But personally, I think something like Wednesday would give people plenty of time to talk trades.
Agreed with pit and HO. A sense of excitement is in the air. The draft is almost here. HO, I think you said it before last draft: HF loses a little bit of its excitement during the draft off-seasons. Maybe I've spent too much time reading bilros' drivel. Whatever. But regardless of whether we start tomorrow, Wednesday or next Saturday, I'm suddenly more interested in HF.
I think I had around 500 or 600 posts for the last draft and related threads.
Seeing as though my application for the military seems to be going well I was wondering if anyone would want to be a co-General Manager with myself as I might have to leave around half way through the draft - well at least I hope I have to leave half way through the draft....
Along the same lines could I change my name to the Calgary RCAF Mustangs... just for the added significance... and I like changing my name.
