your list color-coded stat-filled list handy with the players listed by position. Skip a line when there is a value gap in
the players listed. Cross out or change the font to something faint as the players are protected or drafted. This way you
can quickly see how many players are available at each position of a common level. If there are several more similarly valuable
players available from the next available level at one position than there are at another position, then you know which position
is more scarse and therefore needs to be drafted sooner.
a chat room and conducting the draft by the web is what my private league has preferred to drafting by e-mail. Those who go
to a pub and draft enjoy that the most, I hear, but I’m an old and crodgy family guy who doesn’t see himself getting
involved in that.
I liked e-mail, because you could take as much time as you needed to make a choice. We tried to give everyone an appointed
time to make their picks. There were a few troubles with this method, however, so I’ll concede using a chat room is
much better. Besides some people using e-mail drafts get really impatient feeling they need to be on the computer all the
time checking the picks, then complain that the process is going too slowly. In a chat room, there are no missed appointments.
There are no e-mail routing delays. There is less confusion all around. However, don’t volunteer to be the secretary
recording all the picks. You won’t have enough time to give your own picks enough consideration.
a run on relievers or some other position: I need to make more of a study on this issue. I like to think you should ignore
them. Sticking to checking position scarcity accounts for these, so I see no reason to do anything different.
