    OK, so everyone keeps asking about the weighted lottery that we will be holding to determine our team selection order. Basically, think of it as pulling balls out of the huge lotto globe when selecting #s for the lotto picks. Take our friends at SISAL SuperEnalotto for example...




    However, in our case, instead of #s our balls will have YOUR names on them. Each of you will have an amount of balls put into the lotto globe based on the number of years you've been with the league - up to a maximum of five. Sorry, guys, PMFL and 12th Man years ONLY.

    So if you're new to the league, you will have ONE ball with your name on it entered into the lottery. If you've been with the league for three years, you will have THREE balls with YOUR name on them put into the lottery. If you've been with the league five years or more, you will have FIVE balls with your name on them put into the lottery. If you don't understand, feel free to ask.

    With that said, we will be using the custom lottery on DraftPickLottery.com to complete the drawing (thx LtJustice). We will announce when that will be taking place once our 32 man roster is finalized. For those of you who have been confirmed for the league, here is your ball count for the upcoming lottery. (y)

    This method should work great. The first four mock orders I did, I finished 21, 27, 31, 25. Looks like we are all systems go for the new year. :confused:

    After numerous Mock Lottery Drafts, I've come to the conclusion that it likes me picking either #10, 24, or 31.

    The odds are not in my favor.

    Alright, there are going to be 119 balls total in the lottery boys. The probability of getting the #1 pick is as follows...

    5 balls... 4%
    4 balls... 3.5%
    3 balls... 2.5%
    2 balls... 1.5%
    1 ball... 1%


    Your odds will improve with each selection made as the balls assigned to the owners already selected will be removed from the pool of names. I'll announce the date/time of the lottery in the forum sometime today or tomorrow.

    Dear New Guys,

    Don't get your hopes up for a good pick. You'll probably be disappointed.

    Sincerely,

    Most likely to pick #31

    I just ran about 20 mocks, the highest I saw myself was 6.

    Good news for all you 1 ballers, I saw a 1 baller get 2nd a few times (a couple of different guys) and once they even got #1!

    I have come to the conclusion that, no matter how many balls you have in the lottery, you will most likely end up with a pick somewhere between 1 and 32.
    Now I can get on with more important stuff...:cool:

    I see a lot of people with 4's and 5's who are going to be pissed when that guy from the Bayou with that 1 next to his name ends up bringing home the inaugural Lombardi trophy for this league in M13!

    That's when the guy from the bayou, realizes that he's the new guy and gives his spot up to a tenured veteran out of respect for the league...

    Look on the bright side, if you are handed a shitty team, you get to prove your GM skills to the entire league and show them who's boss.

    Doesn't really matter the team to me. Anybody can find a few bright spots on a roster. Wheel and deal baby, wheel and deal!
