    Yes but we're looking for the best drafters over a series of seasons. The best way to do that is not relegate someone for having one bad draft.

    Who do we rate as a better drafter, someone who comes 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, last, or someone who avoids relegation by one point each time?

    Admittedly, I do have a vested interest here - but to use a parallel - the Premier League Soccer doesn't use a mean to decide who gets relegated at the end of a season. It's whoever has the least points.

    But I'm happy to follow the consensus. Both ideas are fair.

    Perhaps we could have an immunity zone where the top x amount of players in the championship are safe?

    Should someone come first that many times though (or even place, just to make it more realistic) then they'd have five titles and the most points scored overall by far, so they'd still be ranked as the best
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    'Immunity Zone'? That's going to get very messy. Besides living on the edge is fun. Keeps you sharp.

    Mean or Premier League relegation style.

    To be honest, I don't mind if I go to the Reserves as long as I still have the fun of selecting teams.

    Agreed, it's simpler if it stays the way it is. It's only two people who go down/up out of twelve, so if you're consistent then it shouldn't be too much of a threat

    It's not just about that though. We want to find the best drafters and have fun whilst doing it. So particularly those that deserve to be in the next draft, are - not just to prove themselves, but to have fun as well.

    I know you're trying hard not to look biased, as you're one of the people on 3/4 votes atm, but it really is the best way. Lots of good performances should definitely be rewarded.

    Immunity zone is the thing that can solve that - the top (insert a reasonable number) points holders in the championship can not be relegated. Simple?

    Fair one. Your call. As long as there is a solid rule.

    How many players should be immune?

    This will mean that if you were the championship leader and thus immune, if you finished 11th in a draft, 10th and 12th would be eliminated if they were not safe.

    Season 3: The Clause Draft

    Basic rules
    1. The draft follows the basic turn-by-turn format which I will use a random list generator to determine the order for.
    2. Players have 12 hours to take their picks and may choose as soon as possible if they are timed out.
    3. Each player selects and submits their own clause. Examples below
    4. Each clause needs to have 12 different players at the very least who are available to choose from.
    5. For every selection, the player needs to nominate which clause they are ‘using’, and from then on they are not allowed to use it again.
    6. This means we will have 12 player-submitted themed picks, so it should be a chaotic and fun draft.
    7. I will moderate the clauses to make sure they’re not stupid, too difficult, too abstract etc.
    8. Everyone needs to use each clause once.
    9. No Bradman.

    Clause examples
    Select a player that was bowled by Glenn McGrath in tests
    Select a player that debuted before 1900
    Select a player with a last name starting with W
    Select a player from Bangladesh or Zimbabwe
    Select a player that made a pair in tests
    Select a player who had a brother who also played test cricket

    There are so many ideas! I encourage everyone involved to be inventive, but naturally it will be better if a few clauses are relatively simple.

    Jager, there will be 12 clauses in total?

    Disagree with rule #5, but the rest is great. I think you should be able to pick a player and allocate which clause each player uses at the end.

    For what purpose though?

    At the end of the draft? I don't see the advantage. At least if you nominate your clause as you go along we can all cross check it for potential mistakes. That way there's no argument right at the end when we dispute whether 'Don Bradman's wife wore pink dresses on Sunday'.

    Plus people would be less likely to make mistakes if we marked them off, and people will have the chance to 'defend' players if they can figure out who others might want
