First off I would like to thank everyone who was part of the Serie for its first two seasons. We had a few bumps along the way but I think it turned out to be very successful and that is only because of the great owners we had. As we move onto Fifa 12 there will be a new batch of owners coming in, along with the vets that are returning, and the expansion to a Serie C is something I am eagerly looking forward to! Now, onto the team draft news... 1) All owners who were a part of Serie last season will have the right to keep their teams from last season as long as they are still a 4* team or below. If your team has increased to a 4.5* team you will have to find another team unfortunately. With that said, those people will be given priority in the draft and will select before anyone else. Those people are RedAL925 shiftee BESHIKTAS Nickaepi Go Devils and myself. Those will be the first 7 people to pick a team in the draft, with the particular order being selected at random. This will be allocated as Tier #1. 2) All owners who were with us last season and choose to pick a new team will be entered into Tier #2. The highest possible pick in the draft you will get will by the 8th pick, but you will also be guaranteed to select a team before anyone who is either a) completely new to Serie or b) a returning member who was not with us last season. 3) Everyone else (new members/returning members who werent a part of seson 2) will be entered into Tier #3. The starting date for the draft will be October 2nd (Sunday) morning. That means that all members who were with us last season and wish to switch their teams MUST let me know that by Saturday at midnight by the absolute latest. This will give me the time to get the draft order set and ready for Sunday morning. If you do not let me know by Saturday @ midnight I will assume that you want to keep your team and you will not be entered into the draft. Those people are: bigox1337 : keeping Schalke Broncos218 : Entering Draft (dropping Hamburg) IJGator: Entering Draft (dropping Birmingham City) juanchoCT14 : Entering Draft (dropping Everton) Paulitix : keeping Athletic Bilbao TdotMindset : keeping Wolfsburg UcanHateMeNow : wait list (dropping Sunderland) Friz : keeping Udinese mustang20241 : Entering Draft (dropping Sampdoria) OhDaesu19 : keeping Palermo Roger : Keeping Santos snake3249: Entering Draft (dropping Spartak Moscow) xyzvld22 : wait list (dropping Werder Bremen) HokieNYC: Entering Draft (dropping Newcastle) kaptainkracker1 : keeping Fulham For all the new members of the league I would like to say WELCOME and I hope that you find what you are looking for in this league. Any questions that you might have please do not hesitate to ask either myself or RedAL925. Finally, if ANYONE has any questions about the draft please feel free to comment on this thread. Who knows, maybe your question is something that someone else would want to know the answer to.
