View Full Version : Movie Athletes Draft


Turtlepower

I'm bored, so I thought up this idea for a draft...

I want to make a movie sports athlete draft and try to fill as many NFL positions as possible. I understand that there are only a limited number of movies involving football as possible, so I am opening up the idea to draft an athlete from another movie to play a position on a football team (i.e. Wesley Snipes in "White Men Can't Jump).

Also, pick a movie sports team to be representing. It doesn't have to be a football team, so a fake basketball or baseball team is fine as well.

When making your pick, make sure to say the character, the movie he/she is from, and what position he/she will be playing.

So, how about 8-10 reliable people who are willing to send in draft boards, so we can make this as efficient as possible.

Turtlepower - New York Knights
diabsoule - Miami Sharks
Billingsley26 - Sauga Canadians
DWilliams2Colts - Permian Panthers
OSUGiants17 - Bayou Bengals
ESimsfan87 - Flint Cougers
YAYareaRB - LA Express
SuperMcgee - Charlestown Chiefs

Draft Begins Monday, 8 est. There will be a 3 hour clock. The clock will end at midnight and start up again at 10am.

Using Random.org, I created the order of the draft:

10. ESimsfan87 - WR Rod Tidwell (Jerry Maguire)

Whatever, as long as you are on once a day, or what not I'm sure you'll be fine. My schedule is crazy this semester, so go ahead and put yourself down. I know you're a reliable poster, so I don't have to worry about you as much.

And as for diabsoule selection, I knew someone would pick them up quick.

Don't mean to sound rude, but I saw that before today, the last time you posted was May. Will you actually be on for a daily basis to be able to do the draft?

Wait till we start the draft. Also, a big board is only if you expect not to be on during your selection. You don't want to send in a big board and find out that everyone has been picked.

Somehow I didn't realize we had to make a football team out of the guys. I thought we were just drafting them for the fun of it, and I didn't have much intention of having things have to make sense like that (i.e. drafting some of the Mighty Ducks)

Regardless, I'll take Shane Falco - QB - The Replacements

YAYareaRB

You can still draft non-football players and put them in football roles. For example, you can draft Goldberg from the Mighty Ducks as a NT.

Anyway, my pick is...

LB Bobby Boucher a.k.a. The Waterboy

BTW I'm not sure I will be here by the time my second pick rolls around. If people are taking the full amount of time to make their picks, I'll be at the Breslin Center at MSU watching Will Ferrell and the funnyordie.com crew. So in short, I might have to pm someone or somehow get someone to pick for me. I really apologize but Will Ferrell, Demetri Martin, Nick Swordsen, and Zach Galifianakis are gonna be taking up my time. I have class that gets over with at 445 pm and at 5 I'm leaving so yep... Wondering if someone can help a brother out...

He averages basically a sack per snap. He's the greatest. You know I'm not taking this seriously, so my talent level is probably going to be Rudy at best.

But in direct response to questioning Rudy, it's time to rekindle the rivalry
