The clock will officially begin on Monday morning at 8:00am ET. However, Norseman is free to make his 1st pick at anytime.
Just a reminder that the clock is 4 hours during the week and 8 hours on the weekend, unless of course you have timed out at some point.
The following are the rules set by BassNBrew for the PDSL this year, including the explanation of the proxy rule:
4 hour clock, 8 am EDT to midnite EDT
Reverts to 8 hours on weekends. More specically doubles on weekends. For instance if someone misses a weekday pick their clock would be reduced to 2 hours but would expand back to 4 hr on the weekends.
Regarding straddle clocks...
Friday to Saturday: If someone goes on the clock between 8:01 PM EDT and 12 midnite, their clock would resume with the balance of the 4 hours begining at 8 am.
Sunday to Monday: If someone goes on the clock between 8:01 PM EDT and 12 midnite, they would inherit a 4 hour clock starting at 8 am.
One rule change/clarification for this event only. I'm installing a proxy pick rule. Best way I can explain this is to give an example.
Draft is at 18.5 midday Wednesday. BnB drafts at 18.7 and now has a one hour clock after being late on two picks. BSS drafts at 18.8 and has a full 4 hr clock. BnB pms a list of three valid players to BSS and annouces in the draft thread that he has proxied his picks to BSS. After the 18.6 pick is made, BSS goes on the clock at 18.8 and BnB's time is skipped. Three things can now happened.
1. BSS shows up within 4 hours and makes BnB's pick as well as his.
2. BnB shows up within BSS's 4 hour window and can make his pick. BSS's 4 hour window remains the same.
3. Neither shows up during BSS's 4 hour window. BSS's future clock is reduced in half. BnB's future clock remains the same. BnB can draft a make up pick from the available players (if the players on his list are gone too bad). BSS can make a make up pick but has the responsibility to check BnB's proxy for BnB's first.
You can only proxy to the drafter after you (or the one after them if they have already proxied) but are welcome to leave lists with anyone (you will go on the draft clock at your pick). If you decide to proxy, it's your responsibility to forward any proxy picks that have been sent to you already. It's also your responsibility not to proxy to someone who has already proxied their pick and won't be back.
Hopefully this make sense. With the shortened clock I can see instances where people know they won't be around and would like to cover themselves as well as not hold up the draft.
Good luck to all.
