    We're having that problem with the [email protected] players draft!

    How about limiting the hard man draft to players who have played in the top flight of English football?

    Giving a few ideas.

    1. All Time Draft.
    2. Maximum one player per nation draft.
    3. Maximum two players per decade draft. [Players born in that decade] The decades can be 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s.
    4. Letters draft. We all select 11 letters and you must have one player whose name begins with that letter.

    Would anybody be interested in this? I can think of a number of categories that would be very challenging while still allowing you to create a quality team.

    Same evaluation period as the Club Career draft (1988-2014) but not as many world class players to choose from. The key would be your knowledge of good players who weren't quite at that level.

    This one

    The king of all drafts. From the shittest one we're doing now to this one. I think we need something good to rejuvenate the drafts.

    Yeah we need a new one like that. The worst player draft has funnily enough been the worse draft so far.

    25 year drafting period again, best XI of retired players.

    The Landmine Draft has picked up some interest. We could start that after Xmas, around New Years (?)

    Hard to host it when the reason I'm avoiding it is that I'm already confused! :laugh:

    In all seriousness, I'd be happy to host a more straightforward but my schedule would make this one tough for me.

    Some questions:

    What if more than two people PM the same player?

    What if your player gets picked by someone else in a different category? When you get him does that mean you don't then pick in that category and have to pick a different player in your own category?

    ps i want to start asap!!!

    SpursLegend/Ollie can write out the full rules in here, then one of them can host it when they're free...

    If two players bid for the same player neither one gets the player. If you don't claim a player you have to bid again, fail again & you get given the shit player if the last player you wanted is picked. If you missed it, you have to send a shit player that the guy who claims your player gets instead of your landmined player.

    Second question: The first person who picks the player you landmined gets the shit player you posted & then you get your player. After that the player can't be picked. The player they get will be a shit player of your choosing, you're f#cking up if they're likely to be picked at all.

    But that's a good question actually. What do we think about using the landmined player as a joker that can fit into any category? Then as PG says you don't have to pick in that category. It's not gonna be that easy to get your landmined player, you'e gonna have to be clever in who you pick.
