I ran a live auction draft 12 team 5X5 mixed league from 1994-2002. Every draft day lasted 7 - 8 hours. I never had a problem with the length but others did. Now I'm reforming the league with most of the same crew. And it will also be a live auction. In doing my early research so far, I've read about auction draft software. The software claims it can shorten the draft to about 4 hours. If everyone shows up prepared, and I expect they will, does it really shorten the draft to that length? And how well does everyone do with being given a specific time limit to make a decision? Are there a lot of sore feelings throughout the draft because people feel they're being preempted? Thanks.
