Football draft's are dead lads. We've beaten that dead horse to bacteria levels.

Curling Draft? World Championships are on at the moment so a perfect time for it.

Hazell?  What is curling?  Cottage cheese gone bad or hair braiding gone wrong?  Tell me, is it scrubbing the floor to get a waxy shine?

Are the top practitioners of it more or less recognizable than:

1.  Jim from the TV show - Taxi
2.  Sergio Garcia's caddy
3.  Twitter Cats - or the twatterati

Help out an old friend, and direct me to the Messi's of Curling!  Names, I need names Roxanne.

I would say less recognisable than them but slightly more recognisable than Hangle from Wizardora.

Names, Hmmmm, Anna Hasselborg and Kim Minji are pretty good skippers. It's all about the teams and tactics though. Like a Rafa vs Sacchi match.

Both great players but Muirhead is just more naturally talented than Martin. And she's not a greasy egotistical twat either.

Is this the day, the drafting died?

Bye Bye Miss American Pie
I took the King Kenny to the Semi
But my Semi had died
I took the Rondo to Redondo
But we had to play 5 a side

Them good ole brits were taking the piss to my pie
Singing this will be the day I abide
This is the day the drafting died

Think you guys might need to try tempt people with a different idea or even a non-footy related one. Seems like this one fizzled out, sadly,

I'm very busy at the moment, so I can't take part either way. Will drop in and help out if I can though.

Thanks mate!  Appreciate it.

Hey Mikey?  What about an 8 or 10 person draft?  I think we may have 6 or 7 ready, all we would need are 3 to 4 more.  Easier task -- if we all aim to bring one in.

Here are the ones I think would be in:

1.  Lastrador
2.  Tubby
3.  Mikey
4.  Defacto
5.  Trend
6.  FlashGordon
7.  Elzar


RAWKites to consider from previous drafts who have not yet told us NO.

8.  Phase of Play
9.  King Luis10
10. Sarge
11. LFsea
12. Sudden Death Draft Loser
13. Poetry in Motion
14. Sheer Magnetism
15. Max_Powers
16. XabiArt
17. Klippity Klopp
18. JSteve

Happy to do whatever. There are loads of ways to alter drafts to re-energise them with you aspects, just needs the enthusiasm to back them up. I tend to see drafts are more popular when the Reds aren’t doing so well too.

The best ideas are often topical too or big ideas that are intriguing, so focused on hotly debated topics.

One of the most debated topics in football (although it bores the tears off of some people) is the Messi v Ronaldo debate, which has been rekindled because of both their recent heroics. Having that theme around a draft could work, just not sure on the exact rules.

One way is having it similar to the Cisse draft that happened recently, so criteria based on Messi and Ronaldo, with people potentially having to choose one or the other from the start, and maybe criteria revealed afterwards.

If we used this sort of draft; we could alter the criteria from the Cisse template to make sure it was more factual/less contentious. Some of the criteria were a bit upon to manipulation like the “been in a movie” one.

You could instead do players who’ve played with them, in alternate round maybe. This seems to one of the debated points that Ronaldo has carried his teams to titles, whereas Messi has been surrounded by greats.

You could split the teams 8 Ronaldo based teams, 8 Messi based teams so be draft is sectioned off ending with the best Ronaldo and best Messi side facing off in the final (similar to the NFL playoffs with conferences). The drafts could even be separate so the Messi sides don’t see the Ronaldo sides. Although this is harder to organise, and may lead to less discussion.

That’s initial thoughts but could provide the foundations for something. What do people think?

That's true, the distraction from real football when that happens is pretty appealing ;D

Personally, I'd be happy to do any kind of football draft, just don't have that much time at the moment until the end of the season, which would be a good time to run some as well, given the lack of Euro's/World Cup this summer.

African Cup of Nations/Copa America are on, so that kind of draft would be an idea.

Like your Messi/Ronaldo idea too :)

The Brexit draft AKA FFS May is a fucking twat and we're doomed



The country is in crisis. We are a matter of days away from crashing out of Europe with no deal. Theresa May is fucking moron. For reasons I can't explain, you have been tasked with creating an 11 that lives up to everything Brexiters strive for. Rule Britannia. Bugger off foreigners.

- You will each have the opportunity to draft 10 English, Scots, Welsh, or N. Irish players who have never EVER played abroad.

This makes the like of Gerrard, Moore, and Banks ineligible because they dared to set foot outside of this great nation.

- However, you will each be permitted to draft one player from any other European country just because we're a generous nation and maybe the odd foreigner isn't too bad after all.

- Additionally, any foreign player who has made over 300 appearances in the English leagues may apply for a UK passport. This will be on a case by case basis. Only 3 permitted per team.

All-time draft. No other restrictions.

Let's make Britain great again!



















This is a joke.... just like this country.

Enthusiasm is on the boil again.  Love the Brexit draft idea BB.  And Hazell, agree that the end of the season might be another good time.

Am happy to send out PM's Mikey.  Let me know what the next steps are:

1.  Go forward with derby draft
2.  Make a non football draft - many cool ideas
3.  Wait until Summer

Can do all three, please advise.

Trend

Will be gone for the next few hours.  Talk amongst yourselves.

African cup of nations/Copa América draft sounds great. Either together or split.

Thanks! I’m not completely convinced the Messi/Ronaldo is there yet as I was just spitballing, although I do like the split draft into conferences for two different themes part.

Most definitely. The dark times under the Owl were probably around the peak of drafting on here.

On a more serious note (I drafted that Brexit idea above ages ago and just tweaked it :D ), I like the idea of a summer ACON and Copa draft. Maybe even combined in some creative way.

The Messi vs Ronaldo idea is cool too! I think in general, we need more creative ideas if we want to get drafts off the ground. I like the basic structure of the current idea, but it just doesn't have the vavavoom IMO. We've done so many drafts on here now that you just can't pull people in otherwise. Everyone is tired of drafting the same names over and over, and seeing those same selection of names in the final. The most successful drafts of recent have been the Cisse draft (humorous premise which needed some solid research), The all-time draft which allowed steals between rounds, and the Hipster draft (totally new set of players). The LFC and Serie A drafts were popular simply because those two are probably the number one topics on here, but neither can be repeated any time soon.

The other alternative is to consider changing the time limits between picks to allow for people with not as much time/in different time zones to get involved again. Back in the very early days of RAWK drafting it was 5 hours between picks! However, I think most of us would turn rabid waiting that long now  :D

Have sent some PM's.  Getting close.   

One suggestion to make the draft flow is that we create a draft order that takes into account time zones --- so people are not waiting when others are sleeping or in the busy part of the day. ---- or create a draft TimeSpy (whose is not in the draft but their job is to create an orderly draft by PM'ing people before their picks to create flow). 

Betty B has served this function before while participating in the draft, but we will not have the level of experience and Yoda-like draft perceptions!

So, we can make a time zones list to be efficient and get a draft order based upon that.  Then randomly assign the picks within the same time zone -- so people can plan their picks to coincide with when they are online most etc....

Here in KC --- Central Time Zone, USA.

Haven't seen Game of Thrones since series 4 or something, so am slightly out of the loop on this one :P

Just pick Robson or Jerome for everything and you’ll be fine.

Just had an interesting idea. What about a GoT draft? Where you have to fill the king and small council (hand of the king, king's guard, master of coin and whispers, etc.) positions with characters from the show?

Or draft a cabinet with all the different major secretaries, from anyone throughout history, non-fictional and fictional.

Done that one!

Copa America / ACoN in the summer is next on the agenda. We should probably start spitballing ideas. Not sure that one needs to be overly complicated. Could either be modern players or all-time. 50/50 split of players from each tournament. Maybe even limit it to finalists only.

Has to be a limit to Copa America players if you do all-time or you end up having a mostly Argentina / Brazil draft.

Current players would potentially even this out and make it more interesting. Prefer not to limit it to finalists. Maybe just limit it to players picked for the tournaments as they run almost simultaneously.

How about a Copa America/ ACoN sheep draft?
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

Ooooh I like that. Like build squad of ultimate villains? Suicide Squad style but not shit.

Good point. 11 from 11 would sort that out pretty sharp.

If we go all-time, it would be nice if the players had a minimum number of games played, so you can't just pick players who happened to be in the squad.

Modern I'm not too sure of the depth of talent on offer. Might be a bit niche. I'm not too up on the current squads though, so I could be wrong. What do people prefer?

This could work for all-time, for sure. Modern the pool would be too small.
