ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

Round 3 will be different this time. You will now have a deadline to make the pick, and not just the bland 30 minute deadline. I mean by a certain time you have to have your pick announced. You have a 30 minute deadline to make the pick. But that doesn't mean you have to wait all 30 minutes. You can wait 1, 5, 16, or all 30 to make the pick, just do it in time before the deadline. Let me show you a map of the whole thing (just an example).
Texans have to announce both picks by 12 AM.
Saints have to announce their pick by 12:30 AM.
Titans have to annouce their pick by 1:00 AM......
So just keep going on like that. Also, say the Saints make the pick at 12:20 AM. The Titans can also use that extra 10 minutes, but they still have to pick by 1 AM.
ONE MORE THING: Now, since we're a bit more on the same page, if you don't announce your pick in time, it's gone, dust, nothing, zip, nadda. No more of me getting on my nerves looking at every team's roster and depth chart looking at who to pick. Either you do it OR PM SOMEONE ELSE A LIST OF PLAYERS YOU'D PICK, or else nothing. No one will inherit that pick, it was just there and you move on.
So, when we can agree to a time to start off, let's go it.

One more thing- This is totally my fault for not thinking this through all the way ahead of time. I should've realized that people don't sit around waiting for some message board to start a mock draft. Hell, I was at a sleepover party and at baseball practice at Draft's start. My apologies guys, though you could do better than me announcing more than 70% of all picks.

IDK, I have to get some suggestions for time... But I did get your round 3 picks, so it's all good for you.

I dont know if anyone read my post when you were first talking about the interactive mock, but i posted that idea up. Of having time slots.

I think...if we started all over we should have made the draft at one time...maybe one round per day...and only given like 2 minutes per pick...that way people would plan on it and would most likely stay for the whole draft...atleast until their pick. You could have opened a chat room for it too for people to discuss and perhaps make last minute trades.

But now, with the whole process taking so long, people gave up and don't pay attention to it. So I don't think the next round is really going to work...a few will still make their picks...but it's pretty much a bust...

The thing is that it is hard to get ten guys together at one time, much less thirty-two. When I did the fantasy drafts there were twelve people drafting for less than twenty positions. With a week's notice I got three people to show up for the whole draft and one or two more who did the first few rounds before setting it to auto-draft.

The best way really is to do it so that everyone gets X amount of time, at a prescribed time. I'd say the best thing to do for next year is go see exactly how other boards do it and model your's on what you like in their's 08. A lot of them have been doing it for longer than we have (well, much longer since this was our first) and have already gone through the intial troubles that come with it.

I agree that it is hard to get 32 people together at one time. That's why I think it might be a good idea to be a little more selective about who you let do the draft. It might sound a little dick...but too many guys said they would do this who obviously never had any intention of following through.

I think if you organize it enough it could work...think of fantasy drafts...they work? If you make it that orgnaized and say someone will lose their pick in 2 minutes or else...i think it could work?

Oh well...a1's advice seems best...search around and see how other people did it.

I ust did search around and it's the same thing I just suggested, and yes JetsFan0099, I found your post, too bad I was gone when you posted it. sad.gif
But can we give this time slot thing a chance here?
