@klezman There’s no ideal draft time, unfortunately. With 14 owners spread coast to coast, its nearly impossible. Members can post suggestions for other times on the league message board; maybe a favorite time will emerge. Is Sunday early evening better? Weekday evenings? Saturday? Labor Day?
I believe the best time to draft is after 1) most of the last cuts are made, 2) all preseason injuries are known and evaluated, and 3) before the real games start, which this year is Thur. Sep 8. That gives us about a 2-5 day window, if you want initial waivers to clear before kick-off, so Labor Day weekend through midnight Tuesday. I actually think Labor Day would be ideal, but others may have plans.
@merrybill I’ll deal with it and just kvetch a bit, no worries
I’d prefer to avoid Labour Day weekend since it’s a good time to travel/camp. For me, ideally 8pm PDT on Tuesday night since the kiddos are done. But that would be a problem for the east coasters.
