    Seeing as the second season of the top division is starting up again, I'll share my idea for season 2 of the second division draft league

    Reverse Batting Order Draft

    The idea of this draft is that your round 1 pick has to bat below your round 2 pick who has to bat below your third round pick who has to bat below your round 4 pick etc etc.

    Here are the actual rules

    1. 12 round draft, reverse snake format with the order changing every two rounds.
    2. Your first 11 picks have to follow the idea laid outr above aka. the round 1 pick has to bat lower than the round 2 pick who has to bat lower than the round 3 pick and so on and so forth
    3. The round 12 pick is a wildcard pick who can bat anywhere in the batting line up, however the 10 (or all 11 if your 12th round pick is 12th man) have to meet the specifications mentioned above.
    4. Anyone can be made 12th man
    5. Bradman is available for selection
    6. You can pick players in any round you see fit (i.e. the batting order does not have to be the same as it would be if your sides batting order had no restrictions)

    It's an excellent idea, and I reckon you should edit it so this is allowed:

    Round 1: #6
    Round 2: #5
    Round 3: #4
    Round 4: #3
    Round 5: #2
    Round 6: #1
    Round 7: #11
    etc. etc.

    Just gives people a bit more variation that everyone choosing their number 11s at the same time, then their number 10s at the same time.

    Awesome idea Michael, does that mean you could pick Bradman first round if you wanted but he'd have to bat at 11?
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Also, if you're in the draft you should post here saying so, so that we have an idea of numbers.

    I guess if someone does slot Bradman into the No.7, 8, 9, 10, or 11 spot then the voters will have to decide whether his talent has been wasted or not. If we feel that Bradman has been wasted then we will possibly vote for another team.

    Welcome aboard, Ankit. I am going to assume the relegated players will be in too, by the way, but I'll put them in italics

    There is a Draft League which is 12 players, and every round the bottom two get relegated to this league (the reserves) and the top two here go up. We want more people here actually, so stay!

    Should have mentioned in above post but I propose 12 hours before pick is skipped. I say leave it for another 24 hours to get potential signups interested.

    @eds - Doing it that way though would mean Bradman would need to be excluded (which I like to try and avoid) because getting Bradman first and batting him at 6 is still a no-brainer as far as I can tell while under my system (as there is not much value from him at 10 or 11),Bradman being present allows for more tactical options and challenges

    @Jager - If you picked Bradman in round 1 he'd be batting at #11 (or at #10 if you placed your round 12 wildcard selection at #11).

    Yeah I reckon Bradman is too good to include in a normal pick-by-pick draft.

    Michael, are you good to run this one?

    Yes, I'll work out the draft order for the first 2 rounds tonight New Zealand time (approximately 20 hours from now). Anyone else who wants to join can tack on at the end of the draft order
