At first I was blown away, feeling sorry for these guys, but then I realized. If you want to pick that badly, and you REALLY want on the clock, you can make a good offer and make it happen. Startup drafts are a ton of fun, but I think what is going on here is that after the first few took most of the clock to pick or trade, by the time the next guy was on the clock, he said, "you know what? I had to wait, so I'm going to take my time and see what offers come in. "
Most of the time however, as a general rule of thumb, I think if an offer hasn't came in in the first hour of being on the clock, its going to be up to you to send an offer that somebody else wants and even then, I'd likely only do that with somebody that is in the chat so I get a quick response. I really hope the action picks up in League 6, but I can tell you that it's not for a lack of trade offers. Plenty of offers behind the scenes, just not a lot of accepting going on.
I think I agree with CKC. Sometimes you're on the clock and you just want to evaluate every possible option. Would a shorter clock help? Perhaps, but then again, with everyone's schedules, co-managers and time zone issues, I think the longer clock is better. We're rooting for you guys in League 6! You can do it!
