    I'll post the new thread for voting now with MorgieB's team and Cabinet's team with just 11 players seeing as blahblah already had Styen.

    If Cabinet wants to pick again, I can edit the voting thread.

    Cheers once again to Michael, Dan and Monk who helped out here. DL3 has started, so it would be great if we could get the Reserves going alongside at the same time - rvd has said he is willing to run it, so it will be another great season I hope.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Ok, so what ideas do we have for the draft theme?

    My idea was to pick two players at a time, the proviso being they are inherently linked together. The problem, obviously, is whether or not the link is strong enough - but I think we could self-regulate pretty efficiently.

    Pretty poor, I know What are everyone else's ideas?




    BTW Jager, do you have a list of who's in the Reserve League this time round?
    My sworn enemy:

    Personally I think a great idea for a draft with seven players would be a pre-WWII debut draft - gives us a much smaller pool of players, and if we imagine when comparing the teams, the pitches would be pre-WWII as well, we will have some great variations in bowling attacks. Potential for teams to have 2/3 or even 4 spinners in teams has me fizzing at the bung. Some great players of yesteryear would become premier draft picks, even if they were neglected in other drafts, too.

    Very sly usage there; impressive.

    Debuts pre-1939 sounds pretty good to me - will probably go ahead unless there are any objections.

    Bradman?

    No Bradman - rvd's call on the format since he's the boss man
