    NOTHING?

    I was even 15 minutes later than I thought, and NO ONE has picked since then?

    Wow.

    I gave James my top 5 - I don't see why, in the 1st rd, anyone can't make a list. I can see it later to balance your lineup but in rd 1?

    It's not that; I'm just surprised. I thought it'd go faster.

    I'd like to get out today to see a movie, but it's looking like I'm grounded for the next two days at this rate.

    Well, I'm putting storm windows up in a bit but James has my list for the 1st rd. I think I'll be back in time for the 2nd.

    Do we need a draft discussion thread? We could corrupt this one pretty quick.

    Don't let this get in the way of your life.

    There was no way this was going to go like clockwork. However, I am a little surprised that we're stuck after just one pick.

    Can we have a policy where a courtesy email is sent when it is your turn?

    If I wait for a long while and nothing happens I feel like I'm wasting my time. But if I go away and then there is a flurry of activity, I'm seen as the problem.

    SO - if I get an email alerting me that it is my turn, thenI can be back online almost instantly via my handheld.

    Speaking of which, can my handheld account "LosAngeles" (no space) be given access to this forum?

    Thanks!

    As soon as Frank Slade made his pick I sent Pizza Guy a "pager message" that he will get the moment he logs in.

    I just sent off an e-mail but I'm telling ya now if I have to send off 275 e-mails over the next 10 days I'm gonna more than a little PO!

    Ah - I didn't really consider it in terms of total number. Yeah, 275 emails is silly - and too much to deal with. I retract my suggestion.

    I guess I'll just let the person picking ahead of me that I may be away and to send me a PM (which is forwarded to me as an email anyway) once they've made their decision.

    Thanks.

    If you'll be away for a while and your pick's up soon, just send jose a PM.

    Of course I don't think he'll be on here nonstop for the next week either.

    I've got list from 5 guys picking in the top 11.

    If you want to send me a list of players we can try to get this thing rolling once Pizza Guy gives us his pick.

    I would if I had any idea who will be available at 18...Too many possibilities to plan around.

    I'll still be at home for a few more hours I think. Hopefully, Pizza will make an apearance and we'll get me out of the way before too long.

    I realize we go thru a long dry spell during our draft every year but after everything we've done in the past few weeks, this is nothing short of disappointing.

    I hope this will spur people to be a little more attentive to the draft from here on out.

    I'd almost suggest just picking 2nd ranked player for him as yahoo does- picking highest ranked player if teams don't show

    I just got a call from Pizza Guy...He says he's sorry and, with the 2nd Pick in the 2006 American Basketball Association Draft, he will take Sarunas Jasikevicious.

    Burnzone, you are now on the clock.
