Release draft order once league is finalized
Draft order should be randomly assigned when the league members are finalized, not 30 minutes before it begins. This would allow people to do mock drafts in their assigned draft position and prepare properly ahead of time.

Those ideas work for private leagues, but public yahoo cash leagues it does not.
Commissioner can use random.org to assign. I do it in all of mine so we can mock draft.

That's a good idea, maybe Yahoo could give the Commish the option of "random order selected 30 minutes before draft", or "random order selected upon League finalization".
If this is a private league, just have the commish hit the "set draft order" button. Geez. If it's a public league, well you get what you pay for. Yahoo public leagues are awful
