RULES EDIT: please do not be mentioning or discussing names before they have been picked. It's fine to give a justification of your own pick, and to comment on players who have already been selected. No point giving away drafting strategy to you competitors!!!
BTW ... the first round always takes the longest. Until people are familiar with where they are picking etc, and the fact that they have to check in, it'll go slowly. But it will speed up when your teams start to take shape, and interest grows
There are always a couple who join, then sort of forget until reminded ... unfortuntley there is no PM or IM option in the forum.
