Draft Idea Okay, another league may already do this, but I had an idea. It would take a bit of work to get done, but here goes: What if we simmed the OMFL draft since not everyone will probably be able to be there? Now hear me out, cause I'm thinking as I type here. It's early. The draft is simmed, and then everyone releases the rookies that the CPU drafts for them into FA. Still with me? One of the board members makes a draft list of all the players that came out, position by position. ALL owners must send an email to a board member or commish by X date (say 4 days after list comes out). This email must include every player in sequential order of what that owner would draft, 1-whatever. We then go through the draft in order, and go down the list for that team. I'll try to lay out an explanation below: Draft has 200 players in it. I post on the forums on January 1st the list, position by position with overalls next to it. By January 5th all teams have to have sent an email to me (or whomever) with a list of who they like, in order, from 1 to 200. The Bucs have the #1 pick. I look at their list, their first player is Joe Schmoe. Joe Schmoe is now a Buc, and Joe Schmoe is scratched off other people's lists. The Chiefs have the #2 pick. They had Joe Schmoe #1, but have Terry Whoever as #2 on their list. They get Terry Whoever, and Terry Whoever is scratched off everyone else's list. I know this would be a TON of work. And it's a very rough idea. But at the very base of it, it gives all the owners a chance to get who they want. And it tests their evaluation capabilities. You wouldn't want to put LBs spread too much out on the list, because if you do you may end up with 7 LBs drafted and nothing else. The only thing this would hurt would be draft day trades of picks (trading up and what not). With this preliminary idea, we can't "move up" the boards and what not like in real NFL. But if all 32 owners can't be on during the draft, we couldn't really do that anyway. And you KNOW someone would cry foul if a draft day deal got done and they weren't there. I really wish we could do this real time with all 32 owners on, but I don't know if we can. Only way I see is through voice chat on Mumble, but can we penalize someone for not being on? Okay, I'm now ready for criticism/complaints/additions to the idea/kudos. Whatever you want to throw.
