    Default The Drafting Game 2

    Just thought I'd throw this out to see if there was any interest.

    We are having a pretty good time with the first one & it is slow around here.

    I will not be involved in running or playing in a 2nd game this summer but I hope there would be enough interest from others to make the game work.

    Anyone interested in playing or running the game?

    The first game should be finished with the draft by the end of the month.

    I doubt the season & playoffs will take long. We really haven't talked about a schedule yet.

    I'd play, just because I have no life and this gives me something to look forward to.

    Yes, It's kind of sad......

    I think we should have restrictions though, I think it makes it more fun.

    Like no players with salaries over a certain price.

    or

    No Wilt or Russell.

    or

    American only.

    Something like that. Having open games takes away skills/competition/fun IMO.

    And one more thing....(Yah i guess i could've put this all in one post.)

    A better and faster draft.

    This has been like 3 weeks and we aren't finished.

    Maybe less people, or time limits less than 3 days.

    It'd be tough to make that draft go faster.

    maybe a speed draft, where everyone has agreed on a time to be online, and you have to pick with no research, just off the top of your head.

    The reason for the long draft in the first game is mainly due to the great void of activity during August & September around here.

    I saw no need in rushing thru the draft in 2 weeks & then having nothing to do for another month & a half.

    I could see a smaller group or a salary cap but I wouldn't limit the game too much.

    The one thing I wish they had on the What if Sports site would be "career stats". Instead of using a single season stat for a player you could use his averages for his career.

    Yeah... I really don't mind the long draft time... It does allow us to pass the no-Pacer-activity-time much faster...

    So far there is interest from:

    I'd be up fr a game with fewer people. That would speed things up and make for some more powerful teams.

    Maybe an ABA version of this game would fly. Does whatifsports have ABA players?

    yes they do.

    I was also thinking that we could each pick a certain team & only select players from that team.

    An all time Celtics, Lakers, Bulls, Pacers etc.

    I think I Love the Pacers is gonna do this one.

    The upside to each of us drafting from just one team i, you can log on, select your team & be done with it.

    Everyone can draft at the same time & you would have the draft done in less than a day.
