There are 3 ways to set the draft order.

1) By last years regular standings
2) By last years playoffs (then regular season) standings
3) Random

Also, do you want to pick in a STRIGHT order? 1-12, 1-12, and so on... or 1-12, 12-1, 1-12 SERPENTINE. There are other ways, (such as a draft table) but they get difficult to follow.

1:

1 Treehuggers 10-4-0 .714 2294.23 L-2
2 Philly Eagles 10-4-0 .714 2161.30 W-1
3 Unexplained Bacon 9-5-0 .643 2289.50 W-3
4 The Unemployed ) 9-5-0 .643 2148.72 L-1
5 Glomers 8-6-0 .571 2206.50 W-6
6 Concord Kodiaks 7-7-0 .500 1888.45 W-1
7 Ioweigans 7-7-0 .500 1868.63 W-2
8 Mumford's Maniacs 6-8-0 .429 2165.58 W-2
9 New England Planners 6-8-0 .429 1998.90 L-1
10 Prudence 4-10-0 .286 1866.59 L-6
11 N.O. Hot GRITS 4-10-0 .286 1789.05 L-3
12 Argonauts 4-10-0 .286 1666.17 L-4

2: (as far as I can derive from last years thread)

Unexplained Bacon – Repo Man
Glomers - Glomer
Philly Eagles – Mike D
Treehuggers – Mastiff
Ioweigans
Mumford's Maniacs
Unemployed
Concord Kodiaks
New England Planners
Prudence
NO Hot Grits
Argonauts


Also, any people NOT playing will just give up their spot, and new people signing up will fall in at the end in the order they signed up.

I voted for random, in case we have new players.

I also like the serpentine method, otheriwse numbers 10-12 really get screwed.

1-12, then 1-12 again, etc.

Wait....are we saying worst record last year picks first? Or best?

It had better be worst...

EDIT - Actually, I saw go random. I think we're going to have a bunch of new players on board.

It would go best to worst, thereby rewarding the people who played and did well last year.

Who else is signing up? And who are the hosers?

As noted before... the new players would be added at the bottom in the order they join. Thus, if six people from last year play, the MW Plankton would pick #7, as the first guy NOT from last year to join.

I voted random since I didn't play with y'all last year. I did play in two other Yahoo leagues and finished 11-3 and 9-5. BTW, I won the Super Bowl in the league I finished 9-5 (my poor opponent went down in flames with the hobbled Priest). I like the 1-12, 12-1 order. I think picking first isn't necessarily advantageous, especially this year with no clearcut first pick (R. Williams, Faulk, Holmes(inj?), etc.).

That's my 2.67 cents.

I am/was the Kodiaks. The New England Planners (my wife) will not be playing this year.

I voted random because of new players this year, but am open to any way you guys want to draft.

That's 9...

I have it set up for 12.

Can anyone confirm who will NOT be playing from last year (aside from New England Planners), and also contact the folks who wanted to play but have yet to sign up?
