We have our 12th owner...Instinctive had a buddy that just took over a team in horse traders, and accepted the offer to play in this one. I'll get his SN in there as soon as I figure out what it is :-b

Re: Draft Date and Order

Postby Devil Doc » Sun Jul 15, 2012 11:55 pm

Here is a better explanation of the "Horse Race Method" also known as Kentucky Derby Selection..

Some leagues are now using these advanced methods of distributing draft picks and rounds in combination with something called "Kentucky Derby Selection", or KDS. What is that, you ask? Well, as you may have guessed, this process is modeled after the famous horse race by the same name. The Kentucky Derby holds a lottery before the big race to determine who gets the first pick of starting gates. Some horses prefer to start on the inside or the outside, and some in the middle. The point is, since each owner has their own personal preferences, the lottery does not automatically give the first horse the first starting gate - but rather the choice of any starting gate available. This follows for the second, third and fourth horses, and so on until all gates are filled.

"KDS" is named after the Kentucky Derby, but it is not alone in using the process. KDS is viewed in the world of horse racing as a fair and equitable way to give out starting gates. Practically every major horse race uses the same or similar process. Fantasy football leagues using KDS adopt the same principle - since not every owner would want to pick first, the winner of the KDS-style lottery gets to decide which draft slot he or she prefers for their fantasy draft. Each owner submits their list of draft slots (1-12) in the order of most to least desirable.

LEAGUE VOTE: Establishing Draft Order

Postby Devil Doc » Sun Jul 15, 2012 11:57 pm

Instinctive proposed the idea of being able to select where he'd like to draft, instead of it being completely random. I have no issues with this, but would like others to have a voice too.

Whatever the random generator spits out, the owner with the first pick could potentially select where he'd like to pick in the draft.

Yeah, this is only my second start up dynasty - I much prefer taking over teams so that I can blame my poor performance on the previous owner! :-B :-D

I've never tried it, but it sounds like a fair and equitable way to do it, especially for a startup draft. I would be willing to give it a shot.
