Yahoo live draft only takes an hour? I thought on the web site it says to "allow 3 hours for a live draft." Did u have 12 ppl draft?

figure at least two hours for a large league. Never more than three unless there is no time limit...then it could be days!

we had 10 teams last year but I've been in 12 team leagues too. you get 90 seconds a pick but if everyone is logged on it goes really fast.

Our offline draft usually lasts 5 hours or so. We love it and look forward to it every year. Have tons of food and really it is the only time all year we see each other in person so it is a day we all look forward to.

Same here! We looooove our draft day! ;-D

Our 20 team auction draft starts around 8am and ends around 3pm. On a few occasions we went nearly til 5pm. We have a DL round, a 2 round farm draft, and money collection which adds to the time.

I've never had so much fun getting a headache.

Yahoo is the best, if everybody shows up it's done in 90 mins or less.

Hey Prodpaul, was wondering if you live in the KC area. Me and a buddy were looking to find a "in person" live draft to do with some loacal guys but don't know of anyone "that can actually play well" in the area. Let me know if you are from around here in KC and if you have a couple of openings in your draft or if you want to expand the league number for me and a buddy. Thanks
