Forum Mock Discussion
 
It's time for another forum mock!

The goal for this forum mock is to complete three rounds. If things are running smoothly and people would like to do more, more rounds may be added.

In order to apply for the GM spot of a team, please send me a PM with the following info:

1.) Username:

2.) Cell Phone #: (I will ONLY use this to send texts to teams currently on the clock. Draft picks may be texted to me if you are unable to make it to a computer.)

3.) Desired Team(s):

Please list desired teams in order of preference. No co-general managers will be assigned. Assistant managers will not be assigned; feel free to choose assistants once you have been selected as a general manager.

The forum mock will begin approximately one day after teams have been assigned. My goal is to start on Monday following the deadline for underclassmen to declare and the divisional round of the playoffs. This time may be used for media posts, circle jerking about your team's awesomeness, etc.

There will be a two-hour time limit for first round picks and a one-hour time limit for all other rounds. The time limit begins from the minute the person before you picked (ex. if the previous pick was made at 7:59pm, you will have until 9:59 to make your first-round selection.)

The clock will stop between midnight and 9:00 AM Eastern Time. Picks can still be made while the clock is stopped..

IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO BE ONLINE FOR YOUR PICK, PLEASE SEND ME A BIG BOARD. Leaving a big board (via my email address or PM) allows the draft to be run so much more smoothly. If you are logged in while your team is on the clock, you will be given a reasonable amount of time to make your selection.

Please do not waste everyone's time by waiting until the last minute to make your selection. Try to work out contingency trades in advance (ex. if player A is on the board, both teams accept the terms.) Repeatedly asking whether or not anyone wants to trade while the clock runs is unacceptable.

Feel free to sign into IRC. It's helpful for discussing the draft and working out trades and such. You can login here: http://www.gamesurge.net/chat/

Use your username from here. It can sometimes be helpful to add a "(Team X GM) after your name so people know.

To join the main forum channel, type "/join #forummock" (without the quotes obviously.)

Trades may be submitted for approval via PM. Trades will be approved or rejected at my discretion with the help of the trade value chart. All trades must involve draft picks; no player-for-player trades will be accepted. Trades involving players will only be approved if they are realistic and fair; no trades involving players who would not reasonably be traded in real-life will be accepted.

The list of general managers has been announced and can be found below!

Matthew Jones 01-12-2012 02:45 PM

In the interests of starting by Monday teams for the most part will be assigned on a "first come, first serve" basis. A handful of applications are already in so make sure to PM me yours ASAP if you're really hoping for a particular team!

CJSchneider 01-12-2012 03:16 PM

Application sent.

holt_bruce81 01-12-2012 03:20 PM

2nd overall pick is available.

Who wants RG3?

SuperPacker 01-12-2012 03:21 PM

I've sent my application! If i get the Packers then im willing to trade down from 32 if anyone is interested.

I could use another WR but I don't think I'd wanna move up that high.

CashmoneyDrew 01-12-2012 03:31 PM

Application sent!!!! ZAA!

BeerBaron 01-12-2012 03:33 PM

I was going to do another one after the Superbowl, maybe with a full offseason. Still may.

But I'll sign up here too.

Matthew Jones 01-12-2012 03:41 PM

Lots of applications received so far! Make sure to list more than one team if you want to make sure you end up with one!

GMs most likely won't be announced until Sunday unless all of the teams are filled because I want to give everyone a fair amount of time to apply but your application has been received!

Lovely. I was sending you one just in case, but it would appear it's unnecessary.

Caddy 01-12-2012 04:43 PM

Buccaneers kthxbye/

RaiderNation 01-12-2012 04:44 PM

If I'm not able to trade for a 1-3 round pick, can I at least get the compensary pick for Asomougha at the end of the 3rd?

I'll give you the packers 3rd rounder for Lamar Houston?

DoughBoy 01-12-2012 05:08 PM

I shall trade you all of the titans picks for Danarius Moore.

No way I really like Houston and he will be used better in our new defense.

1st round pick plus more? I may be down for this....

SuperPacker 01-12-2012 05:28 PM

I didnt think you would but oh well.

Anyone want James Jones or AJ Hawk?

EDIT: James Jones is a legit number 1 receiver and Hawk is a leader on defense who has experience being the communicator. I'd be willing to give them up for 3rd round draft picks.

The Rams could use a WR and a LB!
