If it was just USA, all our teams would ******* suck balls.

Rob S
01-21-2010, 07:46 AM
All players, starting 11, 5 subs (maybe 7 if its moving well)......we can add a twist if you want, but I think a straight up draft would be good.

Caddy
01-21-2010, 07:53 AM
Yeah! Where did you wind up going?

East Carolina University.

I think we should do a straight up draft.

Rob S
01-21-2010, 08:33 AM
East Carolina University.

I think we should do a straight up draft.

yeah straight up is good, we havent done one in a while......ECU, huh? You plan on making it to some of the big cities? I may be partial, but you must come to NY before you leave.

MetSox17
01-21-2010, 08:45 AM
A twist? What's this twist you speak of?

Rob S
01-21-2010, 08:49 AM
A twist? What's this twist you speak of?

Well, we agreed straight up, but sometime we do a twist to make it fun. For example: you can only draft one player from each country, place an age restriction, place a cap on # of players from the same club team, etc.

Caddy
01-21-2010, 08:55 AM
Well, we agreed straight up, but sometime we do a twist to make it fun. For example: you can only draft one player from each country, place an age restriction, place a cap on # of players from the same club team, etc.

Yeah. I'm not too keen on any twists this time around, but in all honesty I don't care that much.

I just want to do a soccer draft!

Oh okay, i see, well i don't think it would be fair to limit the countries or the age of the players, but if you decided to limit the amount of players from certain club teams, i'd be okay with that. It could keep people from drafting a whole team. What ever is cool with you guys.

If this starts today, i'll be back from school at around 2pm CT so if my pick comes up i'll make it up once i'm back on.

Rob S
01-21-2010, 09:28 AM
I think I want at least 8, so we'll see if this gets going today.

Another question, are we building a team to win now, or are we taking potential into consideration here as well?

Caddy
01-21-2010, 04:44 PM
I don't think we should skip on the first day of the draft. Some people mightn't have known it was starting.

Rob S
01-21-2010, 05:02 PM
I pmed him.........no skipping right now, everyone in the draft is pretty reliable once they realize this started. Plus, it royally sucks to get skipped in Rd.1....

2nd, Bos if you want to be involved I wouldnt mind a co GM because I start work Mon-Fri next week from 9-5.

Nemanja Vidic

Caddy
01-23-2010, 01:03 PM
This was a really tough choice. It was between Essien and a creative winger. But as far as I am concerned no CM in the world is as adept as Essien is at controlling the oppositions midfield.

Michael Essien, Ghana.

I admit, I thought he was going to go in the tank a couple years ago after a meh year. He has been tremendous though, just a consistent battling force in central defense and has really been the rock of Barca's defense this year.

I was dissapointed when he got injured as he was playing out of his skin, but he's back now so hopefully he'll be how he was pre-injury.

I think clock will stop at 9 btw considering the 5 hours difference with the UK time zone.

Are you guys going to draft a backup Goalie? There is still a ton of talent on the board that I don't want to waste a pick on a keeper.

It's your choice or not to draft a backup GK ! You are right there is still a ton of talent on this board !

Yeah, lots of good players.....I think a backup keeper is probably a good idea tho. I know if I was judging, the lack of a backup GK would be a negative in my eyes.
