Looking for a site that generates a draft order and then...

Postby PapaPark » Sat Jun 23, 2007 7:07 am

Looking for a site that generates a draft order and then e-mails the list out instantly.

I've found several sites that can generate the order but since my league is scattered throughout the world I'd like to be able e-mail so every knows it was fair.

I did it last year but during my move I lost the site.

Thanks in Advance.

Well - the one I'm looking for was a little different. The one you posted is a little more in depth as I don't need those types of "draft styles"

I just need a simple order because we snake our draft.

To execute a lotto for you simple order do:
  • Enter Number of teams.
  • Set Number of rounds to 1.
  • For Draft Odds, select Normal Odds.
  • Ignore Draft Style, since Number of rounds is 1.
  • Done :)

I think that is the probability. So for pick #1 that coach has a 4/55 chance. Or a better explanation is that coach has 4 balls in the bucket, and there are 55 total balls to be drawn. A 4 in 55 chance of his ball being selected.

You must have selected "Final Standings", that gives the looser a better chance of getting a earlier draft selection. I assume you don't have that rule so you should select Normal Odds, which then everyone has 1 ball in the bucket. Everyone has equal chance.
