Online draft

I have a question for the zone. We always do a live draft and input the players manually after. This year we're thinking about doing it online but together. Has anyone ever had a problem with this with having 9 people on the same wifi? It's so much easier and cleaner but people say that they've frozen in the past. Thanks!

why do you need the internet to do a live draft?

Just print out a complete draft list of players and hand it out. Then input it later online.
crzy hes saying instead of his commish inputting them they are all going to use their computers on wifi and draft online so they dont have to input them.. I havent ever had everyone in the same room but i wouldnt think there would be any difference from everyone not being on the same room.. The draft rooms are not that internet heavy.

If you're going to do that, why not just do a scheduled draft on Yahoo or ESPN

We have a scheduled draft. Some people are in LA and I'm in Seattle. We always do a live draft and then input after. To keep it cleaner I wanted then to do it online so I could rank my players easier and see who's been picked. They're complaining because they think that yahoo could freeze when 9 laptops together on the same wifi. My only other option is Skype but then I still can't see the big board.
just do it live online using your sites draft room. To answer your question no i dont think Wifi will cause it to lag.. unless your Wifi is balls crappy.
