    The Caveat Draft

    yeah-but.jpg

    The challenge is to build a team with each player falling under one of the following categories:

    1. Has won 100 or more international caps... but never won a major international tournament
    2. Has won a major club or international tournament... but didn't play in the final
    3. Has played for Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Bayern, Juventus, Milan, Inter, Real Madrid, or Barcelona... but didn't win a league title with them
    4. Has won a league title in England, Italy, Spain, or Germany... but with a club other than the clubs listed in category 3
    5. Has played at the World Cup... but never been on a team that got to the semifinals
    6. Has played for three or more different clubs... but only in one country
    7. Has played in the final of a major European final at least twice... but also lost at least twice
    8. Has been voted top three in the Ballon d’Or... but only once
    9. Has won the World Cup... but didn't make the All-Star Team for that tournament
    10. Has played in a major club or international final... but lost by three or more goals
    11. Has won a major European trophy... but not with an English, Italian, Spanish, or German club


    The rules are as follows:

    1. Snake-draft format
    2. 6 hour pick window
    3. 11 players including a goalkeeper
    4. No limit on the evaluation period
    5. Full career evaluation
    6. You may fulfil the categories in any order, but you must state which players meet which categories upon making your final pick. Also, please state which categories your player is eligible for when you make your pick.

    A few notes on the categories:
    - "Major international tournaments" refer to official FIFA tournaments only. No Olympics, Pan-American games, etc. The full list: World Cup, European Championships, Copa America, Africa Cup of Nations, Asian Cup, Gold Cup, OFC Nations Cup, Confederations Cup.
    - "Major European trophies/finals" refer to the European Cup/Champions League, Cup-Winners' Cup, or UEFA Cup/Europa League.
    - "Major club tournaments" refer to the European trophies listed above and their equivalents in confederations outside of Europe (e.g. the Copa Libertadores) as well as official cup competitions such as the FA Cup, Coppa Italia, Copa del Rey, etc. The MLS Cup is not included, nor is the FIFA Club World Cup.
    - One-off games like the UEFA Super Cup or the Community Shield are not considered major tournaments or finals.
    - For categories 3, 4, and 11, the only requirement for eligibility is that the player met the criteria at some point in their career. So for example, a player who failed to win a title during a spell at Bayern would still qualify even if he did win one at Juventus or Milan.
    - In order to be eligible for category 5, a player must have played at least one minute in a World Cup match. On the other hand, no such requirement exists for category 2.
    - Category 8 refers to the Ballon d'or (1956-2009) as well as the FIFA Ballon d'Or (2010-present)
    - League titles of course refer to the top flight only.
    - Regarding category 10, for 2-legged finals the player is eligible if he lost either leg by 3 or more goals.
    - For the purposes of category 6, leagues in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland are treated as separate countries.

    Got 4 people on the list of who I really want to pick first, and 4 people to pick ahead of me. Only need one person to pick someone else to be guaranteed one of the 4.
