you have also missed Lantern, who was a virtue player as well...........AND, frankly, paranoiarodeo did not play for Fire, did he? he hasnt played in any of the last 4 castle tournies, and to say that he was a past Fire player when he actually played for Pirate team, is not actually the same thing, is it?? AND, there was a reason that these returning players were not playin last year, so i am of the opinion that they all get put into the draft.....IF someone retires from the NFL, or whatever, and then want to re-register themselves, do they automatically go to the team that they last represented? Sometimes, there are reasons for them NOT to return to their original squad......... Also, in the case of Deez, even though i love the guy to death, there was a fair bit of angst directed towards him by other BANE members for not showing up at all last year; what if he decides at the time not to play again this yr, due to his renovations and so forth, how do the BANE players feel about him automatically coming into the team again???

I, for one, am glad to see that Bane's pre-tourney training regimen is in full swing.

(Thirteen games? How the fuck did Mazza overlook Lantern playing thirteen games?)

NOTE:

I HAVE OFFICIALLY BUMPED THE KINGDOMS TO 6-PLAYERS STRONG!

By directors decision I have replaced Guillerme back on kingdom fire past the deadline as I had notice prior that he wanted to play and he has completed all other requirements from prior year.

I have also decided that all new and former players will be placed in the draft.

This is the current list of draft picks I have received COC registrations for in no particular order...

DEEZ NUTS
BIG WILL E STYLE
MARAUDER
SCHROBERTS
PARANOIARODEO
CARDANO
DRIFTER
BOD
JESTERME
KUDE

If you submitted interest and have not sent in your COC. I do require this prior to adding your name to the draft. Otherwise I have 3 seats remaining and they will be filled first come first served.

Just a suggestion...

due to the amount of people who seem to never be able to play *many* games, but still want to be a part of the tournament, I suggest that these 6 person teams be made up of 5 regular members, each required to partake in the usual amount of games, and 1 substitute member, who can be used as a filler for the team, doesn't *need* to play any games, but still scores points for the team.

Seems like a good fix for those who think they might only be good for a few games.

so, because some players won't be able to play many games, we should make it so they can play even less?

Each Kingdom will just send in the list of players in the order they wish to be drafted. Any tug of war scenarios that pop up will be resolved awarding the lowest placed team prior year the pick.

You might wanna consider giving more bidding points to teams with more open spots.

Put me in, Coach.

In honor of Deez' 2012 presidential run I humbly request I be considered for a slot on Team Bane. And I dunno if I can be on team Virtue, 'cuz I ain't that virtuous.

That said, I shall endeavor to kick ass for whoever would recruit me. Game on, bitches, I'mma take your castle.

There will be no Bids or Fancy numbers this year since we have bumped back to 6 players. I will be using the original process of drafting players starting with the lowest placed team from prior year and work up.

DRAFT ORDER

1. BANE
2. VIRTUE
3. EARTH
4. WATER
5. FIRE
6. AIR

KINGDOM BANE YOU HAVE FIRST DRAFT PICK!

Since three teams have three openings, you might wanna front load some of their picks, like:

1. BANE
2. EARTH
3. WATER
4. BANE
5. VIRTUE
6. EARTH
7. WATER
8. FIRE
9. AIR
10. BANE
11. VIRTUE
12. EARTH
13. WATER

Silly Enzo: Each and every individual from your championship defending team is returning this year! Meanwhile, three teams are rebuilding from half strength. If you look at the list of possible draftees, you'll see that many have zero previous experience in the tourney, or haven't participated in several years. I think it'd be a good idea for shorthanded teams to get two picks up front, especially 'cause they're gonna split the last four recruits too. In other words, the least experienced players are gonna go to the weakest teams. I dunno. There's no simple or perfect way of ordering the draft, but I thought I'd offer up my best idea for consideration. Snype can take it or leave it or change it around a little. Just trying to be fair!

(Besides: What's Air so afraid of? Huh?)
