    Interest in a draft?

    After last year's fiasco, is there any interest in organizing a draft of any type (we'll work out what kind later). We'll have our hands full come june with the WC, so it would have to end before.

    I'll do the organizing if noone else wants it.

    Anyone?





























    crickets?

    I'd be in if this happens. I was robbed last time. No one could beat my 2-6-2 lineup.

    I'll give it another shot

    My team was talented if not a little out of position on the field.

    Only if I get Urlacher.


    a tired old ref, but had to be mentioned

    I'm moving this month so I'm very busy with that but I'd like to participate.

    and Frost you know Urlacher is an über athlete with über refs so even his references never get tired.

    I think this thread was started when you were on your break.

    I think he's pretty busy studying but I'll send a PM, since 'someone' has to do it.

    As for the draft itself I was thinking of something relatively easy for everyone since people may not have time to research and we’re not Uber-draftniks.

    It would be a current player draft. Restrictions would be:
    - You have to announce before the draft what your formation will be 4-4-2, 4-3-3…etc.
    - Your team will have to have players from at least 3 different championships. I’m toying with the idea of 4, but that may be stretching it. If everyone had a ton of time on their hands they could research and find guys worth drafting in Germany or elsewhere. But 3 seems doable for everyone.
    - 11 players + 7 subs (1 of them a GK) + manager
    - You MAY NOT draft Brian Urlacher

    As for winning the thing, we'll vote amongst ourselves afterwards

    Thoughts?

    I figured everyone knew it was a joke because no draft is complete without B.U.

    If I were to bet, I would say Woody takes him in the 1st round.

    Wait a minute. Didn't you draft Vinnie Jones last go around? If you allow Vinnie, you have to allow B.U., and maybe EBG.

    Sure,

    My goal is to have the 1st fantasy team sent to administration

    Excellent.

    Looks like we'll be 10.

    Draft will start Monday 22nd March if you don't mind. I have a vacation to take first.
