I don't ever want the system to select a player. With the current options available, I either have to watch the timer so I can stop it if someone takes too long or unwind the picks if I miss it too. I would much prefer that the speaker say "times up" every 5 seconds or worst case do nothing and just let the timer sit at 0:00. We have never enforced a computer selected pick when the timer expired.
When Draft Pick Timer Expires...Do Nothing or Nag
Posted 13 June 2019 - 12:52 PM
So I have a couple answers, both are pretty much the same:
1) In online leagues I've been in that have done an online draft, timer expires the pick is skipped and it goes to the next team. Draft continues as normal. Whenever the skipped owner contacts the commish with a pick, the commish will sub in their pick. But obviously it can't be a player that has been picked since.
2) In my local leagues where we draft in person at the bar...race to the podium. I have an egg timer that goes off when time is up. I give countdown warnings and I'll even pressure if it gets under 10 seconds by telling the next team to get their pick ready. Timer goes off the team better announce right then and there or it's to the next team. And the next team, etc. until they finally get their pick in. Only happened a couple times in the many years but it's hilarious to see when it does as someone panics.
