    Fron now on will do I think. Otherwise it becomes too much homework and hardwork, and besides, where do you draw the chronological line?

    This is a terrible idea IMO.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Makes people become hyper-competitive, and therefore takes the fun out of drafting? Could be a consideration that I didn't think of.

    Personally, I just like looking back at the previous winners/winning teams and their various combinations

    I agree with Monk that Watson should dig up as many old drafts as possible.
    1) Ross is the Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    There's no real way to 'win' a draft on here IMO. If you highlight the results of the polls too much then people will start drafting to appease the people who tend to vote on the polls. I'd have no issue with the drafts here being ultra-competitive if there was a tangible way to measure the result, but there's not.

    I think this could be quite entertaining and would encourage Watson to go as far back as he can and collate all the results, not just list the winners - this would throw up at least one anomaly that being that although in my own mind I am brilliant at drafts I suspect an analysis would show that, in terms of votes cast, I am the least successful of everyone

    I wait for the day that I can win a draft, and furthermore win a draft with a team featuring Mike Garnham.

    I think that if Watson could list all the winning draft teams in this thread it could be quite interesting from an analysis perspective. I suspect that shane warne will feature in most teams where he is eligible (but I could be mistaken).

    I don't know. Elite players are more likely to feature in winning teams from drafts that had fewer participants. You'd need to standardize for participant sizes for such data to make meaningful sense, which is impossible.

    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
