    What would REALLY be nice would be if when someone makes a pick, they list the time and who's up next.

    The time is posted automatically, but yeah, it'd be great if people could say when they were making makeup picks and when someone else got skipped.

    Now now people I know this is a long process and there isn't much talent left which makes it drag on even more. Lets get through it as quickly as we can and on to the season.

    273. Cleveland Spiders - expired at 5:14 AM (makeup due)
    274. Kalamazoo Kumquats - on the clock until 1:14 PM
    275. Lighthouse Point Bums - on deck

Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    I may be wrong but it looks like people are going out of their way to find something to complain about. Isn't this supposed to be fun ? And maybe let us forget the day to day struggles of surviving life? Post the time? When it is clearly listed in the post ! Complain that I did not say I was making up a missed pick? When I put up 3 players so I can get to bed is wrong. Making up my pick when I am late is wrong. Geez, cut me a break !!!
    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who get binary and those who don't.

    It's now 10:31 PM EDT. The Kumquats are on the clock.

    Calm down Ed. Some of the posts were my fault. I didn't look far enough back and so I thought Garry had picked too soon and put up a post. As has been the case so often lately, that turned out to be a mistake, which started the domino effect, as so often can happen. Guess I'll never learn. Let's you, me and everyone else just keep on making our picks and get this season under way. You and I can restrict our harassment to each other, and have a good time.

    I think because (1) the draft is taking pretty long and guys want to start the actual season, and (2) we're down to a group of guys left in the draft pool whose talent more closely resembles a cesspool. So patience has gotten a little thin.... I think some us - myself certainly included - need to step back, take a deep breath and remember this is for fun.

    And New Orleans has two make up picks coming whenever they get a chance.

    I actually enjoy all of the whining and apologizing. Keep up the good work. Jack

    Suggestions for how we can improve aren't necessarily complaining.

    And I specifically wasn't complaining about you not posting that it was a makeup (unless you were talking about someone else's post)

    It was a hard decision for me between Billy Milligan and Bill Cristall. I sweated this one for a long time!

    Agonizing over whether to take the trash or the garbage can make for a long afternoon, Ron. I can barely wait to make my next two picks!

    At this point in the draft, I think you could just about put the names in a hat to draw out your pick and not do an worse than putting any thought into it.
