Ok, some rules, shameless nicked from Betty's original draft, thoughts and changes are welcome:

Rules:

- 8 female bands or female solo artists each. Bands must female only or the majority of members must be female so B*witched are eligible but Sonic Youth or The Cardigans aren't. Final decision rests with the person running the thing.
- If an artist appears in multiple bands or has had a solo career, they can still be picked by another player.
- You must pick an artist or band from at least 4 different decades between 1920 and the present day. NOT SURE ABOUT THIS, THOUGHTS ARE WELCOME
- If a band or artist has had multiple incarnations or member changes, please specify which version/era you're picking. For example, Floyd 67 vs Floyd 80. No other variants on that bands line-up can then be picked.
- Where possible, please post a video or link to some live footage or a great track by your pick. It gives the draft a bit of added life.
- At the end of drafting, you must nominate a headline act and choose the order in which your bands/artists will appear on stage.

Not sure about this rule. Without much effort I can think of two female singers that could be picked by three players.

Sorry, I don't think I'm gonna get time to run this one this time, next international would be more likely.

Unless anyone else wants to run it?

Good question. My opinion is that if they're thought of as a female band then yeah, if not then no. But that's pretty subjective so I don't know. I think that would generally be fine though.

Hmmm so it has to be 50/50 and thought of as female or just thought of as female?

50/50 and thought of as female or the majority of the band would have to be female, I'd say.

Ok fair enough, was gonna pick another band then, but the 50/50 thing kills it.

Don't know any of their songs but I always thought of them as an all female band, shows what I know (not very much, obviously).

I was writing down some rules, they're not really set in stone so whoever runs the thing can ultimately decide.

It’s 1 girl and a couple of guys. Pity they’re an awesome band. You should give them a listen

Someone grab the reigns, and for Fowler sakes, lets get a large draft going in one of the weirdest months of the year.

I'd suggest either:

A 2010s draft - as we draw this decade to a close 2010-2019, drafting best XIs from this decade - simple concept but could be fun and been a while since we've done such a simple draft

or

Not sure on exactly how it would work but:

A managers draft, so either a manager per round, and we draft players who played under that manager, or we each choose a manager and create a team in their image.

In this idea, I prefer the former, so we'd have 11 managers (open to suggestions for them) and we go from there.


I think as we only have a week to get a draft together, the first one would be easiest to get people excited by.

Thoughts?
