It's my turn to post my pick and I have until like 8 EST or something like that, and we lost our picks in the official 1st round thread.

Lol. First post (insert links to thread for selection rounds) was supposed to be updated with the link. I'll let Matt know to fix it.
Here's the thread: https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/64172

Is there anywhere to see who has what picks in case someone wants to offer a trade to that person?

The link to the pick/selection tracker (the google doc) is on the first page of this thread. There it will show who owns what picks.

You can use the Tracker and see everyone's picks. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yo8xQyv9ueo-D1BRo2y3J0t2hwKU5UqKaSlw2HNT7i0/edit#gid=0

You'll have to make sure the pick you are targeting hasn't already been moved and just waiting for processing (check trade thread), but that should give you all you need.

Remember to copy/paste the previous list so all of the selections are included in your post when you make your pick please!
That way the next person in line can always see the selections made before them so they don't accidentally pick the same player.

I think you should remove the rankings from that google docs page. If people don't know who a player is that is their own fault.

I would probably say until the cut off time to make the pick.

11:30 AM EST is the hard deadline. Whoever owns the pick at that time will get the best player available based on the agreed league wide list if they haven't made their selection.

That ranking is the league wide best player available list we are using for those who don't make their picks by the deadlines.

Shouldn't there be a 3 hour timer reset? I mean, if the only reason i am trying to acquire the pick is to move down a few slots, shouldn't I be given the opportunity? If we are only selecting 6 picks a day, it shouldn't be a problem

The board already decided on this I think. Timer doesn't reset. It's the job of the GMs to make a good enough offer such that the pick is moved early enough so they can flip it. Philly had a like 12 hour window to decide to move the pick and no ones offer stood out enough to move it until the last minute so that's the way it goes.

I also think bob mackenzie's draft rankings would be more accurate for the 1st round. If Bob doesn't know what he is doing then nobody does!

I agree, this is what was implemented and agreed upon. Changing it now is not fair.

If we do that the whole schedule gets thrown off. Not fair for Matt and Rico to have to try to figure things out again.

It's not that nobody's offer stood out...he was just trying to get more...again this is the flaw created by allowing everyone to see everyone's offers but oh well.

Where did you guys get these rankings from? I have yet to find the site that has players ranked as you have them.

True, between Bob Mackenzie and Craig Button you can't go wrong.
