Alright guys .. we all know a fantasy football draft can be made as one of the premier days of the year. For the past 6 seasons, as commissioner, I've attempted to out-do the previous years, and I come to you for advice. I'm looking for ideas on how to add some additional fun/drinking/events to the night. Here's an idea of what we have done/do on draft night.
Personal invites snail mailed to each owner in using Kenny Vaccarro's Draft invite as the outline.
Press release emailed to all owners informing them of a recent addition/subtraction with one of the owners slots
Division selection (auction draft) - pre-draft beer pong style game. Owners names at bottom of cup, thrower (starts will last years last place finisher) gets to choose whether he wants to be in that managers division or out of it. And it continues on. Each cup is a full beer which is drank.
Auctioneers secret players - 10 players that our auctioneer secretly chooses. You win that player, you take a shot.
Of course, pizza and beers are consumed through the whole night. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated.
We do an auction draft, with a custom made (blackmailed the guy) podium, draft board, and excel spreadsheet on TV to show $ balances. Thanks guys. Much appreciated.
