I can't get in either. I thought it was an issue with being in two drafts at the same time. I can get in the other draft

It has been hosed for me more than an hour. I'm not sure if we're meant to go 7 x 24. But, I can't ask in the live draft chat...; I can't do anything in the live draft GUI. If it is still going somehow, I don't know what to do.

I'm going to assume it is messed up for everyone and will have to be restarted or resumed once it is fixed.

I wasn't watching the chat carefully. But, I did notice a couple remarks after Bonds was taken.

If I understand correctly, eligibility to be drafted is based on the teams each manager has been assigned as noted in the league comments. At the top of this post on page 1:

"5. Please draft your roster with 28 player cards that have played in one or more games during their major league career with one of the teams from your selected franchise or with a Negro League Star."

"Baseball Reference is a very detailed website, I think you will find it helpful with your research."

Maybe everyone else understands this better than I do. But, I think this goes beyond which ATG8 teams a player has a card with." That's why using Baseball Reference is mentioned for doing research. In ATG8, Joe Morgan only played with the Reds. But, he actually played with Houston, San Fran, Philly and Oakland, too. Based on my interpretation of the above rule, any of Morgan's cards can be selected by any of those teams; not just the Reds. If this was made clear in the chat during the first few picks and one or more managers raised a stink over it, the commish might have shut it down to regroup.

If there actually was a problem with the Live Draft, I think there would be more chatter in general about that.

Not being able to see anything in the draft, I’m only guessing about Bonds. He could be taken by the Chicago Colts manager because Bonds played for one of the franchises of that team (Pirates). The Giants franchise is the only other team that could take Bonds.

You are interpreting the situation for Joe Morgan correctly. You really have to use Baseball Reference to find all your eligible players. They only have to play in one game for one of your franchise teams to be eligible to pick. Lots of research to do, which is why the long clock is necessary for this draft.

I am in the 24 team live draft as well. Whenever you go to the draft page or refresh the draft screen, the draft lists you as joining the draft. One time (that I noticed), the team for me joining the draft was my team name from the MLB 46 draft. Weird....

We need to reset the whole thing and set a time.
