    DRAFT RULES

    1. Snake draft format with 4-hour pick windows. Deadlines will be frozen from 12 midnight to 8 AM depending on your timezone.

    2. 11 players including a goalkeeper.

    3. You must put together an XI of players who have played for a specific number of professional clubs over the course of their careers. The breakdown is as follows:

    1 club - 2 players
    2 clubs - 2 players
    3-4 clubs - 2 players
    5-6 clubs - 2 players
    7-8 clubs - 2 players
    > 8 clubs - 1 player

    4. Although the club count encompasses the player's entire career, the evaluation period is from 1990 to present day. So you can pick someone whose career started in 1982 and all his clubs will be included, but what he did prior to 1990 is otherwise irrelevant.

    5. Loan spells count, but B Teams and the like do not.

    6. The player must have made at least one competitive appearance for each club.

    7. We will have a tournament after the draft. Player steals will be included (more on that later).

    kab, this is a new draft, you don't have to have Ronaldo in your XI.

    Your first ever #1 draft order position and you spunk it away :/

    Shit, you're right... I guess I've just replaced the Iker Casillas pick as 'worst first pick ever' :(

    Do multiple spells at a club only count once chief?
