    To me the argument about lack of creativity doesn't apply because it is just one pick, most of the top five is predictable as well, its lower in the drat where knowledge, stratagy and skill kicks in.

    Nah, Bradman is a huge advantage. There are a few obvious opening picks, but they are all around the same level. Bradman is at another level completely.

    In if there's room.

    Large drafts are always interesting, given the ATG players go very quickly. Means the later rounds are all about discovering talented players who are criminally underrated.

    Going by the first in best dressed rule, a 12 man draft would include...

    Jager
    Cabinet96
    Himannv
    kyear2
    watson
    Eds
    MrPrez
    Cevno
    kingkallis
    AndyZaltzHair
    Blakus
    Marcuss

    If everyone is happy to extend to 15, then we'd see Monk, morgieb and rvd in. If not, they will be the first players included when people drop out or get relegated.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Your choice, you are the boss. No problem either way. 12 i s preferred, 15 is more challenging.

    I think 12 would probably be way more efficent and prevent the draft from dragging on, which is unfortunate because some excellent drafters will miss out on the first round.

    So, on how big the relegation zone should be. Instinct says two, which would mean morgieb and Monk gain promotion at the end of the round and the bottom two vote pollers exit the league until they are in line to re-enter. This adds pressure to the draft, as in future rounds even the championship leader may be relegated for a round after a disaster of a draft.

    We have six points-scoring positions (1-6), four neutral mid-table positions (7-10) and two demotion positions (11-12).

    First draft rules
    ATG test draft, players must have played at least one test match.
    No Bradman.
    There is a 12 hour selection zone before you are skipped. You still choose at any time, but the draft continues and you may miss out on players.
    We will have twelve rounds. Your 12th pick does not have to be your 12th man.
    A new thread will go up on Cricket Chat where everyone votes on three different teams, which is how we will determine the winners, point-scorers etc.

    These rules seem fair enough to me.
