    Sorry fellas, I got a lot of things going on right now so I don't think I'll be able to participate. I'll help out with sticking threads and such, though.

    Any of the regulars wanna organize it?

    Work has picked up a bit, I'd be able to participate but not PM people who are taking too much time ..etc. Plus I've done 2 already.

    I need a few days - busy time right now. I'll organise it if no one else puts their hand up - I won't participate however.

    Need to get a few numbers however. Also, maybe change the rules? Like have a draft for players who played after 1980 or something? Means it would be easier as there is youtube stuff available for those players, less so for players who played before then. I can't actually remember the last draft, was it current players?

    Edit: since this website is based in the USA maybe say have to pick 2 players from North America, ie either Canada, USA or Mexico? Just throwing a few things out there.

    I think these things work best when there a major tournament in June (Euro or WC).

    This has disaster written all over it.

    For a girly sport on a manly-sports forum, we're holding our own.

    By my count we have 6 participants so far?

    At the minimum, we can definitely get more posts than my Red Bulls threads from years past.

    What's the ceiling on numbers for this? I can run it at 5 players - would mean more good players to go around. Where is the Turk? Was certain he'd be around here with Gala going the way they are.

    A pity we can't get sponsorship - winner gets a Jets jersey signed by Lionel Messi and Brian Urlacher. That would drag in the punters.

    2013 is a rough year, You have qualifying, but no major tournament.

    Ideas for rules:

    - Pick 11 countries and require any team has one player from all countries

    (Italy, US, Turkey, France, etc....)

    - Require 4 North Americans, including at least from US, Mexico, and Canada.

    - Best European team
    - Best South American team

    Thoughts?

    I think Malaga is the weakest team still left, after them you and us.

    You gotta admit it would be fun though I might even come and throw some shards of glass at you
