TOP 10 Mistakes NOT to make on Fantasy Football Drafts!

Three of four of my drafts are over. I would like to give tips to those commishs out there on what NOT to do. This is Flukie’s TOP 10 MISTAKES NOT TO MAKE!

1) ALWAYS start the draft on TIME!!!! I had a draft this past Friday night at 8pm. One of the draftees decided to go out drinking and hit the strip club BEFORE THE DRAFT. So thanks to this individual we didn’t start drafting until 9:15pm. It was an auction draft which takes longer then a snake draft. I didn’t get to bed until 3am. This is a good way to annoy your league mates.

2) Don’t forget your money. I really despise people that forget their cash. Mainly because it is a douche move. If you forget your money then you can’t play. That simple.

3) Have FOOD! I hate commishs that don’t provide food. If you are TOO cheap to do so AT LEAST warn people. Most draftees will chip in to order pizza and beer.

4) Flukie’s biggest bitch! YOU MUST HAVE COFFEE! If you have a 4 hour draft and people are drinking we all need to SOBER up or at the bare minimum WAKE UP! Especially if your draft runs late! The box of Joe at DD costs what $10? Better yet turn on your coffee machine and brew

5) Have a person who will put the stickers on the DRAFT BOARD! Either that or splurge for the fantasy football software that puts the players on your rockin’ BIG SCREEN. Do not make the person who drafts the player have to get up and stick them on the board themselves. That is amateurish.

6) HAVE a TIME LIMIT. There is nothing worse then that person who does not prepare and takes 5 minutes for each draft pick. We suggest 2 minutes here at the gab.

7) Do not have BREAKS EVERY 10 minutes. People can go to the bathroom. If they are still in earshot I don’t care if they have to draft in the toilet.

8 ) Have a place for people to sit. This may seem obvious but I hate when I get to a draft and have no place to sit.

9) HAVE INTERNET ACCESS! Please have that “magical” hidden key available for the WIRELESS NETWORK. Don’t say “aaaaahhhhh i don’t know what the combo is for the internet”

10) Please GIVE correct directions to your home. I had a draft at a new “development” and the GPS sent me to an OPEN FIELD!!!!
