The Official Current Players Draft Thread
Ok, due to the fact that the opinion was split between the current players draft and the fantasy world cup, I have elected to to the current players draft this year, and the fantasy world cup next year. The rules are similar to last year, which are posted below:
11 Starters, 6 Subs, 1 Manager
Goal Keepers- Min 1, Max 1
Strikers - Min 2, Max 3
Midfielders - Min 3, Max 5
Defenders - Min 3, Max 5
1 GK, 1 M, 1 ST, 1 D, and 2 discretionary Spots
-All players must be on a club team (there is no constraint on division or playing time)
-Everyone must chose one player over 30, and one player under 23 (just to add some challenge)
-Midfielders/Defenders are eligible across their line, rather than just in their specific spot
-Strikers/Wingers are ONLY available as strikers/wingers, , midfielders are similarly ONLY available as midfielders (so no Lampard at striker, for instance), and defenders are naturally only available as defenders
-Manager - club or international, provided they are managing today
-Last, and probably the most important rule, YOU ARE DRAFTING THE MODERN VERSION OF A PLAYER. For example, if someone drafts David Beckham, they are drafting the 2009 David Beckham, not the 1999 David Beckham.
-Last year I proposed a six hour time window. However, this was rarely followed and I did not enforce it at all. This year, I am aware the impossibility of a time limit, and just asking everyone to submit their picks as soon as they can.
-Last year we had 9 GM's. I believe that we can have a great draft if we can get around 12 GM's this year. I'm unsure how I will determine the order this year, so just post if you are interested or not.
Thank you and good luck to all
