Title: League Draft Order
Post by: AKIN on October 16, 2011, 10:59:46 PM
We will begin the draft at 8:00am Central time next Monday 10/24. We will go with a 4 hour time limit on the picks. If you want to pre-rank your picks and send them to me, Drooke and Viratas, so that if you are not able to make a pick, one can be made for you. If you have not sent your contact info to the three of us, please do so asap. I won't be able to be right on top of this like I have been the past couple of years, so hopefully we can all work together to get this done as smooth as possible. Thanks!!

hey akin     i know there is no trading of draft picks once the drafting starts but are we allowed to trade positions in the draft prior to it starting?   could someone who wants to draft 8th trade me their spot for mine?

I drafted him two years ago after listening to wrestleoffs...I knew nothing about him.
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: yak rider on October 19, 2011, 01:35:10 PM
just a thought as i was sitting here.   i don't know who was on everyone's roster last year but maybe everyone could get a chance to keep a wrestler and see if a conflict does crop up????   perhaps everyone who might want to keep a guy from last year would not pick the same one as someone else.     just thinking out loud.  drooke could keep drake, i know i have enough guys that i could keep one and so on but just thought i would throw it out there.

Post by: brycemus on October 19, 2011, 02:19:31 PM
I like his idea...everyone could send their keeper picks in (like a 1 and 2) to you and then you could compare (I'm using the Drooke/V/Akin) as a royal "you"

If we can keep someone, do we have to keep them in the first round?  I had some great picks last year late, but they wouldn't really be first round material guys(Devin Carter, Mario Mason, James Fleming)  Can we keep them a few rounds ahead of where they were selected last year?
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: yak rider on October 19, 2011, 08:47:00 PM
hey   this isn't a rule.  this was just thinking out loud on my part.  last year guys could keep one player and it cost them their first round draft pick.  i thought that was fair if someone had a guy from the get go and wanted to keep him throughout his college career it seemed like it would be cool to follow them in this way.  again if there are a couple guys who both had the same guy on their roster and both wanted to keep said player then it goes kaput.   again i was just thinking out loud.  akin et al are the rule makers.   
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: AKIN on October 19, 2011, 08:56:14 PM
The reason we did not have the keeper rule this year was because we combined guys from both of last years leagues and it there is no fair method to allow keepers when guys had the same wrestlers in different leagues. As late in the game as we are now, I don't think we can add it this year. Next season we won't have an issue with this.

I think you should snag him in the first because I highly doubt he makes it back to you Herbp!   ;D

Between Drooke and myself there won't be a Hawkeye left after 5 rounds . Maybe drooke should take Ramos then I take Gambrall and so on until Telford is gone !! Hook up with me Drooke so we can iron out our nefarious plan.

Actually NY I would trade with you if I could...it is nice to be able to make your 2 picks and then be done with the draft for quite a bit of time.
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: nywrestler4life on October 20, 2011, 12:03:23 PM
I agree with that but it still sucks in a 15 man draft because all the national title favorites will be gone by the time I get up.
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: yak rider on October 20, 2011, 02:03:40 PM
hi akin   my thought was that everyone who wanted to would submit a name to ya and if there was a wrestler rostered last year that two guys wanted that would be it.  but if guys wanted guys they had last year and there was no conflict it would be nice to keep a favorite guy.  i think that could be done in a day or so.   just throwing it out there is all.

What is the exact time for this to kick off?  I know V on a mini-vacation at the moment....

I sitll haven't heard from Dimaria....I hope he is doing ok.
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: AKIN on October 21, 2011, 11:39:30 PM
I was thinking of 8:00am Central on Monday. When is V back from his mini vacation? I will try to get in touch with Dimaria.
Title: Re: League Draft Order
Post by: Drooke on October 21, 2011, 11:45:18 PM
I think V just went to vegas for the weekend. 

What do you think about suspending all attempts at getting someone to pick if it is past 12 am central....BUT if they don't make a pick by ....say....10 am central we will pass them over....
Title: Re: League Draft Order

V will be back Sunday night.  I just sent Dimaria a text...

Send your first pick with backup picks to myself or V.  Akin has already submitted his  picks....

I think this is a good idea. We will run with it.
