    Sheep like Draft on Speed

    I'm interested in seeing how this works.

    - 8 participants - the first 8 to say they are in are playing - no more.
    - The objective is to pick unique cricketers and aim for the best XI possible. If anyone else picks the same player as you, no one gets them.
    - Each team selects 15 cricketers, who have played Test Cricket and emails me at sheepdraft@gmail.com
    - After 24 hours (or once the 8th person has emailed me, whichever happens first) I will tell everyone which players they've got and which they haven't - eg: Lokomotiv 1) yes 2) no 3) yes 4) no 5) no 6) no (he plays baseball) 7) no 8) yes etc. etc.
    - Then I will give everyone another 24 hours to name 10 more players (so this round could be a tactical decision to screw up other people too).

    Question: Are those players who have been rejected in the first round eligible to be picked again in the other rounds?

    No they wont.

    I'm actually not certain what is better though. Just going 1) yes 2) no 3) no OR going 1) yes 2) no (Khaled Mahmud chosen by x and x 3) no (Peter Sleep, chosen by x and y) Thoughts?

    EDIT - I'm going with option A, the 1) yes 2) no 3) no one as 15 + 10 players is enough selections to get only 11 players that you require if you pick smart and have some luck.

    The latter imo.

    Also, just realized Monk's avatars are moving towards the Sin City spectrum more and more.

    Yeah sorry for asking for your thought and then making a decision moments later. I'm happy with the first option, for the reason explained last post. Its not that big a difference though, if you have a NO, you know someone else has picked that same player anyway.

    What happens if people pick their 25 and don't have an XI?
