OK, so its that time of the year again folks!!

Current GM List:

1. Chomp & AMAC - SAN ANTONIO, TX
2. DAB & RDC - ATLANTA, GA
3. Johnny & Migs - ATLANTIC CITY, NJ
4. DJW - MONTREAL, CA
5. Nick - BUFFALO, NY

7. Ravens & Hawk64 - BALTIMORE, MD
8. Pyro - MIAMI, FL
9. Tom - TORONTO, CA
10. Dalcowboyz & Devin_Kurant - DALLAS, TX





RULES


Roster Sizes

34 for NFL - 14 on Off; 15 on Def + K, P, HC, DC, and OC


23 for MLB - 8 Position, 1 DH, 5 Bench; 8 Pitchers (5/2/1) and MGR


18 for NHL - 9 Off (3 Lines), 6 Def (3 Lines), 2 GK, HC


13 for NBA - 12 Players (standard roster) + HC


16 for FIFA - 10 Field Players, 1 GK, 4 Bench + MGR


----------------------------------------------------

Draft Formats
NFL draft:

Franchise Cornerstones: 10 Rounds; Must pick 2 players from each sport
10 Rounds

NFL: 2 Cornerstones; 16 Rounds of 1 Player; 8 Rounds of 2 Players
24 Rounds + Cornerstones = 34 (2+16+16)

MLB: 2 Cornerstones; 21 Rounds of 1 Player
14 Rounds + Cornerstones = 21 (2+21)

NHL: 2 Cornerstones; 16 Rounds of 1 Player
11 Rounds + Cornerstones = 16 (2+16)

NBA: 2 Cornerstones; 11 Rounds of 1 Player
11 Rounds + Cornerstones = 13 (2+11)

FIFA: 2 Cornerstones; 14 Rounds of 1 Player
14 Rounds + Cornerstones = 16 (2+14)


Timeslots - For the cornerstones:
4 hour timeslots (8-12, 12-4, 4-8, 8-12)

Timeslots - For the individual drafts:
We will start with 1 hour time slots. If we have too many missed picks, it will be adjusted.

----------------------------------------------------

Other Stuff
Trades - Trades are allowed. However, they must be completely even. I.e. 2 pick for 2 picks. You can also only trade within the same sport. You CANNOT trade an NHL pick for an NFL pick.

Injuries - For now. I am going to go with no one is hurt. And just assume everyone is healthy. However, this is up for discussion.


Draft Order - all draft orders will be completely randomized, and will be snake format. A change from last year, NBA will be snake and not ABBA format.

Voting/Winners - we are going to vote at the end of all drafts, and we are going to find outside posters to join in I the vote as well.

Win Now vs Potential - this is starting a franchise, so everything should be considered; age, marketability, team fit, team cancers. You should consider winning now and winning in the future!! Keep that in mind, because it will be a big part if the judging.[/quote]

cool....we be ready (or will be)

just so I understand this in my own brain correctly....would it be fair/accurate to say that our goal is to build teams that give us the best chance to win the most games/titles possible in the next "X" amount of years? Say, 10 years or so? While doing so, having an organization that is making $$? As a follow up to the 2nd question I'm just going to assume that geography is not to be considered here i.e. there is not an inherent profits advantage to having a team located in NYC vs a city like Milwaukee, like there would be in real life.

To this 1st point, yes. Winning now vs. winning over the next 10 years is a pivotal balance in this draft.

Second point, no NYC will not be weighted higher than Milwaukee. However, things like having a player in his hometown team, where he will be more marketable or having a latin born player in a city like Miami or something like that will be weighted. At least in my voting it will be.

I think we should work out some more defined voting blocks.


Perhaps a

Win Now section

Win Future section

and maybe a Media/Merchandise section that is separately voted on but doesn't really count.

I dunno something a bit more defined.

So picking Buffalo is going to be counted against me for certain sports basically? Buffalo geographically/market wise would be a significant bump in hockey, not in any of the other sports though. Not sure I like that.

Might have to consider choosing a city like Las Vegas now...

I agree on the definition part, something more tangible would be nice...however I think breaking out winning now vs winning later will potentially muddy the waters. Ultimately, shouldn't the goal to simply win as much as possible over the next "X" amount of years? Otherwise, its like having two separate drafts. I realize that strategies will differ, and some people will focus more on the present, some more on the future, and some a blend of both, but can't we just look at the whole scope and say "ok, which team is set up to win the most in the next 10 years"? To me, when the winning is done is almost irrelevant as long as it occurs in the overall defined period of time. For instance, if you look back now at the last decade for any given sport and say, ok, which team was most successful? You probably add up all the wins/losses and titles for that decade, and not care so much for when the titles were won. That make sense?

what I took from it was that the city shouldn't play in too much to the overall voting, although on the flip side if we are getting consideration for having hometown players, then cities like NY and Chicago have advantages (or Miami with the Latin thing), whereas a city like Buffalo that only has 2 major sports (or certainly Las Vegas with none) is at a disadvantage. I'm going to go on record and say I'm not really going to weigh that in to my vote....my will be mostly based on how well I think you'd do over the era and do you generally have players that would be good for any organization vs ones that could be a detriment

Can we please hold off on using time slots until we hit a decent lull? This group was very active last draft, and we really didn't need time slots in the long run. I also think 1 hour is a pretty damn short time period to start them off at.

I understand we can send big boards and all, but (at least for me) plans can change pretty quickly when I get to see who comes off the board directly before my pick.
