    Hammond is a very good pick. Would have done the same myself.

    So are we allowed to use the "first" name of the President as well or only "surname" is final?

    Well Michael (whose clause it was), used James Garfield to match with Garfield Sobers. So I'd assume it's going to be fairly liberal in that respect. Last name/First name of President can equal either Last name/First name of player, it looks like.

    Sounds reasonable

    Johnson, Taylor, Truman and Jackson all have players, but I think we should do first names of the cricketer as well - that includes Arthur and Garfield as well without checking.

    If someone could make a list tonight of possible players, it would really help me - unfortunately I'm out all of tonight and most of tomorrow - if not I'll do it tomorrow night.
    Let's all agree with the boss - apart from the 'make a list' bit.

    I also assume that Donald Bradman is off-limits as per usual.

    Still dont agree, because in every draft that Bradman has not ben included, because he would be the automatic first pick, Garry Sobers has been the first pick. Still predictable.

    Sobers is not a huge advantage like the Don no matter how you cut it. As a batsman he's on a par with several other greats, and his bowling was OK but nothing special.

    The thing is, Sobers doesn't make your team an automatic winner in terms of its batting lineup.

    I thought we'd go the surname of the president can match up to either the first or last name of the player - reasonable?
