    ForzaInterForums Football Fantasy Draft

    The idea and rules for this are shamelesly stolen from another forum (fuck em', they don't own the patent ). I found it to be a pretty interesting and simple concept, so let's see if anyone's interested in playing:

    Rules:

    - 8 posters are participating in this competition.
    - The aim of the competition is to select a team of 11 players (1 must be a goalkeeper, 3 to 5 defenders, 2 to 5 midfielders and 1-3 attackers), choosing from players playing today, and keeping in mind their general form right now and within the last year (as a rule of thumb). The general idea is to make the best team possible.
    - The participants will each take turns to select one player in ascending order (Participant 1 will select first, followed by Participant 2, then Partipant 3 etc.).
    - Once the first round of the draft is complete (all 8 participants have chosen a player), the second round begins. It operates the same as the first draft, except this time in descending order (Participant 8 picks first, Participant 7 picks second, etc.). This is to ensure that those towards the end of the list get fair picks.
    - You have 24 hours to pick your draft, so check this thread often if you're involved. If you don't draft within the 24 hours, your turn will be forfeited and go on to the next participant on the list - you'll get two picks your next turn instead. Also, write a quick writeup on the player you've chosen (not an essay, just a few lines), eg. 'why he fits into your team, his strengths' and so on. Maybe even add a picture of the player in question, just for the heck of it.
    - When selecting a player, it's generally a good idea to have a balanced mix of defensive and attacking players, as your team will be going up against another poster's team - see yourself as a coach, where things like tactics matter - it's not a competetion about having the 11 best players, but the single greatest team.
    - When all teams consist of 11 players, a randomized tournament bracket will be made, and the teams then go against each other in 1-vs-matchups. Here you set up your team in formation (using http://www.footballuser.com/post or the like) do a quick writeup on your team, and why you think it'd be superior to your opponent's. Now, spectators will vote on which team they prefer (participants are not allowed to vote in the interest of fair play), and the team with the most votes progresses to the next round. I haven't yet decided how long you should be able to vote, but let's see if this thread gets any activity anyway. This proceduree goes on untill the 2 last standing teams meet in the final of all finals to determine the winner.
    - Not a rule per se, but I think it would help things run smoothly if the when a person has picked a player, send a PM to the next guy in line to know it's his turn.
    - I'll try to organize this thing as well as I can. So your only job, if you're participating, is just to follow the rules and have fun in the best football-nerdy way possible!

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    Picks will be randomized via random.org when we've got 8 players. Makes it more fair. Anyway, order shouldn't matter all the that much, as seeing if you get first the first round, you'll be last next round. Even things out I find.

    I'd like to. As long as you people believe me when I say that I won't fiddle with the brackets or order of drafts or something like that

    Everyone so far happy with us doing an "of all time" draft? Or do you have any other suggestions?

    Could we limit it to say, last 10 years maybe? Just so people will actually know the players and not their reputation.

    Or just current players? far simpler. Like, if I picked Ronaldo, would that mean world class Real Madrid Ronaldo, or crappy fat ass bilan Ronaldo? Obviously people would assume the first option when the player is at their best, but then what if someone picked Ronaldinho, a current player, but specified his Barca form. Just adds unnecessary ambiguity.

    The process would be greatly simplified if we took current players by current form. However, -10 years would also do the trick, as long as we go by the rule that, if I pick a player, it's at the top of his form eg. Ronaldinho in 05-06, Essien in 08-09, Kaka in Milan and so on?

    But it's up to you guys, I'm here to serve. Personally, I do like the retro-part of it, going back in time and picking out the best players, but at the same time, I do see the problem with that kind of format.

    The draft process is far less competitive and fun as well as theres a far larger pool of players to choose from. I don't really mind, not my game, but just my 2 cents

    Ok, OC asked for a poll, so here it is. Choose

    Right, we've got out 8 gladiators. Now we just got to find out what kind of game we're playing. Please vote in the poll.

    After we've get a suffecient amount of votes in the poll, I'll make a randomized order, update the OP, and we'll start off from there.

    With a smaller selection of players I think it would be better. If 8 of us choose 11 players then that's the top 88 players, which is still really high quality which won't make too much difference.

    It means one person could have the best left back in the world, whereas someone else could have only the 8th best, which is quite a mis match, so I think its ok now, but like we could limit the leagues to choose from or something. Maybe that would be overkill tho
