And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
We are gonna be judged on the basis of best playing eleven right? I mean we are allowed a junk player right?
I have done my bidding on that assumption..
Yes best XI will be voted on (and potentially simmed)
Since everyone bar daemon has responded fairly promptly it may be worthwhile considering reducing the time between rounds to 24 hours. I think that 24 hours is managable.
01. Victor Trumper 02. Warren Bardsley 03. Clem Hill 04. Charlie Macartney 05. Warwick Armstrong 06. Monty Noble 07. George Giffen 08. Hugh Trumble 09. Jack Blackham 10. Fred Spofforth 11. Ernie Jones
01. Jack Hobbs 02. WG Grace 03. Kumar Ranjitsinhji 04. Johnny Tyldesley 05. Frank Woolley 06. Stanley Jackson 07. Frank Foster 08. Arthur Lilley 09. George Lohmann 10. Tom Richardson 11. Sydney Barnes
Him/Her and 2 others still haven't submitted bids but am interested in hearing feedback from others on this
Let's keep it as 48 hours, but let's finish a round as soon as everyone (except Smali, he's a lazy bitch as per experience from an earlier draft ) sends in their bids IMO.
I'd particularly like 48 hours mainly because of weekends. I'm generally busy with my life on Saturdays and Sundays, and don't often come online.
And Daemon is a 'Him' btw.

marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
None of the players in the list is a wicket-keeper.
So will there be a special round with a list of just wicket-keepers as it is very unlikely that 13 keepers will appear randomly in 12 rounds?
Otherwise it's inevitable that some teams will end up without a wicket-keeper which doesn't seem fair/right? Or, we'll all have to make bids of several million for that one-armed keeper from Swasiland who dropped 14 catches during the only Test that he played in the 1880s because he had gout and couldn't bend his knees properly - just because he's the only one on show. That doesn't seem fair/right either.
