Michigan- Lionel Messi
Woot- Wayne Rooney

OK, so am bored and was thinking of some constraints we could put on, maybe if you we did a draft with 11 starts and 5 subs, we could make it so you could only have 2 players from each group or something like that?

So, 10 seems like a good number......I think I won't put any further constraints on it right now. Players can only be drafted if they are in the World Cup (final rosters have not yet been announced so I suppose we will limit it to nationalities). I will have a draft order up soon. No skipping as of now, but I will apply a clock when I see fit. I also reserve the right to skip or boot anybody whenever I feel enough time has passed. I will kick people out because I don't want this dragging incessantly like these drafts have in the past.

I can volunteer to judge, if you'd like.

Rob S
05-03-2010, 03:14 PM
Sounds good eaglez.....here is what I am going to do. Starting tm at noon, If you are on the clock 3 or more hrs., you will be moved to the bottom of the draft order. You can still pick, it will just get the draft moving and save us some time. A PM has been sent to Michigan, so he is aware he is OTC. Again, this will start tm at 12. Michigan has until then to kick us off, at noon the #2 team will be OTC and Michigan will be picking 10th.

Michigan
05-03-2010, 06:28 PM
Sorry for the wait.

Anyways, I will take Lionel Messi, Argentina.

Remember when i stole that man in the 3rd round......that was epic.

Caddy

I'll take part in this, but like I said in my first post, I don't have regular access to the message board and don't have time to make big boards every day.

It's probably best if you continue without me but I'm ok if you want me to stay.

Rob S
05-03-2010, 08:27 PM
We can roll with 9 or you can co with me if you want. You could judge too. Better not to slow the draft down.

Caddy
05-03-2010, 10:43 PM
I'll be a judge!

Just a reminder, 3 hour limit until you are shifted to last in the order starting at noon EST.

Yay, if somebody drops out (which will likely happen), you can jump in. You can also co-gm with me if you want. I always like some outside input.

If you wanna co, send me a big board with like 5 players so we can get our 1st pick squared away.

Rob S
05-04-2010, 12:50 PM
No to piss anyone off, but I think I am changing the clock to 2 hours since its not like your getting skipped. I want to get this moving. As of 2 PM EST, UK Fan will be switched to 10th and everyone else will move up 1.

Rob S
05-04-2010, 01:02 PM
UK Fan is now 10th.....you can not pick now, you have to wait since the allotted time expired (although if it is done in the next hour, I will allow it since I had said 3 hrs.). Adshoefield will be on the clock until 4 EST.

Rob S
05-04-2010, 03:01 PM
Adschoefield is moved to 10th position.

I am OTC.

With the 3rd pick in the WC draft, I select:

Cristiano Ronaldo, Winger, Portugal.

Reasoning: What do I need to say? World class player who I rank 2nd in the world currently (altho Rooney has made quite the case this year).

Oh boo. I thought since the clock was three hours I would be back in time. Poo.

Rob S
05-04-2010, 03:50 PM
Sorry man. I can always take lists if there is any doubt. I am sure the judges would also take lists if you dont want to give them to me for strategic reasons.

Oh no worries, it's cool man. I don't mind being on the back end either.

Mr. Goosemahn
05-04-2010, 04:00 PM
I select:

Kaka, (Attacking) Midfielder, Brazil

Rob, what would be sweet is if you were able to get 20 teams together and we could hold a pretty legit draft imo. Teams would be very realistic and would require that people know their stuff. Whatever format you use next time, I definitely want in!
