Sorry, didn't realise you were the draft police.

My unnamed Liverpool player had nowt to do with Kennedy. I was talking about a completely different position. Hilarious how desperate you are to attack every post I make in here.

This post is so disingenuous.

1. If you go through the entire thread you'll notice I referenced you several times positively or accurately.  So let's not exaggerate.

2. You do have a history of "not being a part of the draft" but then becoming a part of the draft in the middle of it.   Sometimes cool, but also there was a Viva incident.

3. Three, I no longer enjoy these drafts and its precisely because of moments like these - not all your fault of course, but it is new information for the group.


Not the police.  That's a poor analogy. I have little power or control over what you do.  But please keep helping all of us understand this drafting world so much better -- so we all can think the same way.

Tired of the RAWK insider clique bullshit....  I like most here, even those I get into arguments with --- but spending this time is no longer worth it.


Out of here.  Done.  JK, you can have the team mate.  Wish you well as well as the rest of the teams.

Mental he lasted this long. I know he's a manc, but he's arguably one of the top players in the entire draft. Excellent spine you've built there, Max.

Thanks Betty.

Not old enough to have watched him play but not many players picked so far won a Ballon D'or in their career. Charlton won it and was a runners-up twice. I think only Keegan, Ronaldo and Owen ever won it beside him while playing in England.

He is also a manc pick out of the way that probably won't get too much hate.  ;D

Look, mate. I didn't want to upset you or make you leave, but really you got the wrong end of the stick and then tried to beat me with it for no reason other than because you wanted to. That's not my fault. The unnamed player was absolutely not Kennedy. I actually made a point of not mentioning his position. I only referenced the lack of LBs as you'd just taken Cole and Kloppage took Irwin. Two great picks. Even if I was name dropping Kennedy. You could have simply sent a friendly PM asking me to cease and desist. To which I'd have explained my side and we wouldn't be where we are now.

I've been drafting on here for far too long and like any addiction it's hard to completely give up. So I get my fix by popping in and commenting on drafts as they happen. When Bobby suggested I jump in, I was tempted for sure but I didn't take it up simply because I don't want to draft any more. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy it, I just prefer to sit back and watch it from my armchair. Not sit on the edge of my seat constantly worrying that you feckers will take my players. So I'm sorry but I'm not going anywhere. I hope others don't mind me hovering around either, because I enjoy being part of the draft community on here. It's not a clique, it's a little family. A fucked up one, but a family all the same  ;D  No-one is outside of that unless they actively choose to be. We have all these stupid jokes from way back about Gullit and Carlos Alberto, but also newer ones that you've been a part of - Big Willy and that Italian player prof picked who no-one has ever heard of. There's no clique. Just us losers laughing at old tired jokes.

Just come back and finish your draft, mate. There's no need for any of this.

You have every right to post in this thread mate. This conspiracy theory/clique/'sisters' shite has got to stop. Drafts are only meant to be a bit of fun, and for the most part that's exactly what they are. The voting stage doesn't even matter, the previous draft only finished a couple weeks ago and I honestly don't remember who won it. We have a really great little community going here, it's nice to be able to pick players and build teams with others who share the same interests. But recently it seems like there's a lot of snide comments going around, a lot of resentment and a lot grudges being held for petty reasons. That's why I didn't participate in this draft. In the last one I had three people coming in the threads throwing insults at me for no apparent reasons, where's the fun in that? Let's all chill out and enjoy the drafting.

You'll get no credit from elsewhere but I think Rooney is one of the most underrated players I've ever seen on this site, for obvious reasons I suppose. Almost a 1 in 2 scorer for well over a decade, scorer of all kinds of goals and did it in every tournament bar the World Cup and let's face it he's far from alone in that. When they sold Berbatov and Tevez he carried Man Utd until Van Persie joined. I'd have only had maybe a handful of strikers ahead of him.

I think the most underrated player over here is fat Frank, closely followed by the granny shagger. I get that the rivalry with Steve was a big part of it, but never could quite understand why he still is so underrated and disliked. He never seemed like a c*nt, I can't remember ever speaking much shite about us, and he was an extraordinaire midfielder. It's not just his goal scoring ratio, he was a great passer and a very smart and durable player.

I think in large part it's because the media tried to put him in the same echelon as Messi and Ronaldo and he was never in that bracket, so everyone veered the other way; but it doesn't mean he couldn't be World Class and he was.

I think one or two lines explaining who and why we vote could help alleviate suspicion of being ganged up on. Some matches have next to fuck all comments on them. I Know the fun is the drafting but surely we can come up with something to make the voting fun too? One suggestion would be less matches voted on per day. 1 am and 1 pm for example, put up in advance before voting starts. Teams could analyse the match up, do a little write up, present it to voters who could then fill in a simply designed voting slip and upload it for all to see. Sounds convoluted but it would take less than a couple of minutes to complete if voting slip was formatted right and could be enjoyable . Just my tuppence worth

I like the idea of people setting up their arguments, in fact I'm more than willing to do the matchups now so people have some time?

Apparently post-voting (rather than poll-voting) is always disappointing, so I think that's a no go?
