The Daily Hilario: WaFFLe drafts

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

WaFFLe — ZOLA:

Growing pains / annoyances aside from Togga that caused an hour-long delay at the very start — servers crashed due to either overload, incompetence, or outside evildoers — the Zola draft went ahead last night in a much more expedient manner than last year's RealFFL version.  So that's a plus.  The Togga customer support was pretty decent, too, and while the draft got stuck for about 10-15 minutes about a third of the way through, it was mostly a good experience.  Some people got their last picks autodrafted for some random reason, but that's hardly anything to get too upset about.

Here's how the first round went down (compare with last year).  Despite the hiccups, we had exemplary participation ... with only PickledFoo having to switch to autodraft (to fairly disastrous results, including a trio of Stoke strikers, Di Maria, Cambiasso, and no goalkeeper).  Sorry, man...

  1. BrendanKali:  Eden Hazard
  2. Nevil:  Alexis Sanchez
  3. FootieFromAfar:  Sergio Aguero
  4. DPeezy:  Raheem Sterling
  5. B Tret:  Wayne Rooney

  8. S.Correa:  Santi Cazorla
  9. yatcli:  Branislav Ivanovic
