Because if the league gets full the draft will finish in the late afternoon. If I started it later people would do half the draft and then end up going home. It's designed for people who are generally available to be online between nine and five (i.e. the majority). I did the maths and if the league fills up it will take x hours meaning a later start would mean a finish at commute times.

I have been actively encouraging you to set up a night league - I even said I'd join in! - but instead of this you instantly complained because I picked a time you
couldn't do and since then you've been negative about this whole thing.
No-one else has given me an exact time so I can't set it up based on information I don't have, I just set up a league I thought people could do. Four have signed up already so I can't be totally out of touch.
You didn't make a league for the evening players that you keep referring to, so I did. If you're still annoyed at this fair enough but IDK why.

I don't see why its unreasonable to agree a time with everyone
I'd love it if that had happened, but it hasn't. So I'm doing something. Because if I didn't then no-one else would and nothing would have happened. I just want to play this draft league.

I'm sorry if you feel that way - however consider how the tone of the following is likely to make the intended recipient feel

I'm not being forced to watch a stream I don't want to watch just because you say so.
Auto-listing is obviously no fun. Stop insisting like thats an option.

I think you're being a bit out of order, yes.
I'm sorry if you found my tone 'passive aggressive' but I thought it would be more productive to try and be tongue-in-cheek with my replies, and maybe try and drum up some traffic for Pedz' stream, than to reply with "DML stop bitching", which would be pretty shitty of me.
I wanted to do the draft league. I set up a draft league. You didn't like the time so I suggested you set up a night draft league and I'd join in with that too. You complained at that
so I went ahead and set up a night league and have invited lots of people. You've complained about that too and at me.
This has sucked a fair bit of the fun out of the whole thing for me now, DML. Which is a shame.
Play if you want, or don't if you don't want to or can't.
But obviously expecting me to survey every single other potentially interested person and asking them what times work best for them personally, then studying the data and identifying an optimum time to play, is clearly not going to work, because: One, the season has begun; Two, people generally don't volunteer that info - plenty of people have said "I can't do that time" but no-one bar yourself has really told me when they could
do a time.
I just want to play this game. I have said all along I will happily tailor it to the majority. I'll even move the night draft if the majority want me to (see below)
EDITED to be less irritable and to include the fact that I am open to editing the time of the night draft
