    FIF Fantasy Draft - Serie A Edition

    Going to try another one of these, with exclusively Serie A players.

    We'll do 8-10 participants again, depending on demand. I'm going to participate in this one because, well, I feel like it.

    Preference will be given to people who didn't participate in the first one. Also, I'll invite Shaun back so he can defend his title.

    Post below if you're interested.

    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 1-4 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.
    - 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!
    - Players must be registered to a Serie A club for the 2015-16 season to be eligible. I.E. - no Banega or Dani Alves. Additionally, if a player is owned by a Serie A club but on loan abroad, they are not eligible to be picked. If a player is on loan in Serie A (Rudiger), he IS eligible to be picked

    Not around enough to participate, but will be interested to see what the teams wind up looking like. I think this is more interesting than the global draft where everyone has a team full of superstars.

    I'd do it again if numbers are needed. I encourage others to do so who haven't tried it yet.

    The first picks have a huge advantage. The top 3 players in serie A are a big jump over the rest of the players in the league right now

    Well, if he backs up all the shit talking he was doing during the last draft he should. He won't have the balls

    I think having a top pick is always an advantage, but there are only three difference makers in Serie A right now. A team with Pogba is so much more impressive than a team with Hamsik or Salah. A lineup with Messi is impressive obviously, the difference on paper between him Griezmann for example isn't near as high. Or maybe it is, but in theoretical situation Griezmann still seems like a likely game-changer, whereas I think the top 3 or maybe 4 players in Serie A are the only ones that can really win a game on their own with any regularity.
