Day 1 featured the first three rounds of an action packed draft that saw a few interesting picks and some sensible ones. Day 2 promises to be even more fun. Despite the vociferous, fervent, and sometimes illogical complaints by some of the community, I felt that the Titans did well in the draft so far. The votes will have to come in quickly today unlike the near fiasco that was the first round as I'll be taking over as the Commissioner and won't be heavily involved here most likely. It's rob's show so his final ruling applies. I'll check in periodically when able and will cast my vote in the event of a tie.
General TST rules:
Schedule: Each day will begin with an opening trading session lasting from Noon until 1:50 PM EDT with a 2 pm start
Saturday: Rounds 1-3
Sunday: Rounds 3-7
Round 1: 5 minutes
Round 2-7: 3 minutes
1. While I hold the GM title, it's only a figurehead title as I'll be primarily concentrating on helping TST run the draft. Robgreenlaw is the ruling authority in the war room and his word is final in any situation.
2. There will be a vote on every pick that the Titans have as agreed to by robgreenlaw, deaconbrodie (who unfortunately stepped down as assistant GM because of scheduling conflicts), Douglas M (overall Commissioner), and myself.
3. With the votes, everyone's vote only counts as one. I ask of you to vote for yourself, instead of being influenced by others. If there is any hint of undue voter impropriety, robgreenlaw will shut down the Room at my behest and we'll handle the draft ourselves.
4. Shortly before the Titans pick, either rob or I will present a list of 5 or 6 candidates to vote on.
5. Enjoy it!
