Fancy schmancy place holder in the form of a question: do we get slots based on how we played last year, or is it a random pick yet again?

That's a good question. I checked our constitution and it states that draft order is determined by random draw via a third party website.

That doesn't mean we can't change it.

I actually like the idea of the Kentucky Derby Style of drawing for spots. For those not familiar with it, here's the essence of it:

Each owner would privately submit their preferred draft slots to the commish (me), in order from most preferred to least preferred. Lets say you love the 4 spot but hate the 11 spot. Your PM to me might look like this:
4, 5, 3, 6, 7, 1, 2, 12, 10, 8, 9, 11.

Then the co-commish (murph) would randomly draw a pick order. Every owner would get their highest available draft slot pick based on that random draw.

Lets say murph draws m16a first. m16a gets his first choice... In this case he said he wanted the 2nd pick.
Then murph draws my name. My first choice was the 2 spot, but since that's already taken, I get my next choice, which was the 10th spot. I would continue to read owners' draft preferences from left to right in the order that murph drew them.

The advantage to this draft style, obviously, is that you have a good chance of drawing a draft slot that you want while likely avoiding one that you don't want. In my past experiences with this, a high percentage of owners drew a spot that they were pretty happy with.

I do a variation of this in one of my money leagues, but it is somewhat simplified. Basically we do a blind draw for an order to pick your spot and start a thread. Whoever drew #1 would pick their slot and so forth. The advantage to this approach is that you can adjust on the fly. For instance if I really covet #4, but indi takes #3, I can adjust and take a late pick because I know indi will flippin take the player I want every other round if I stay at #4....

Either way, I am in.

Me take a player you want, right before you pick? I have a hard time believing that would happen. :-? :-)

I've done this way before and really enjoy it. We call it a 'destiny draft.' I'd be in support of it.

Also, when in the summer do we think we'll be starting this up?

There seems to be enough support to at least vote on changing how we determine draft slots, then assuming that passes, voting on exactly how we will determine draft order.

As far as the when... Once I have all 12 members signed in, I will post the items that we are voting on. I am flexible on when we start the draft, I will probably just post a poll for that as well and we will roll with how the majority votes on when to start the draft.

I've sent a text message to wacougmbs because he hasn't signed in to the Cafe in a while... I will give him a few more days to respond before I invite a replacement.

Looks like the site is back up and running.

Never heard back from Cougs, so I will extend an invite to the next on my list that showed interest in joining.

Once we have all 12 owners secured, I will post polls for our possible rules changes, and we will start our draft shortly thereafter.

And we have 12.

I will post poll questions shortly... Proposals will need 7 yes votes to pass.
