    Mediocrity Draft

    this is not a draft where you draft the worst team you can, it is a draft where you draft the most bog average mediocre "eh" team that you can

    not bad enough to be offensive, just "eh"

    so like

    who's in
    Shady's XI:
    M Vijay || D Elgar || KS Williamson || LD Chandimal (wk) || Misbah-ul-Haq || F du Plessis || MM Ali || VD Philander || TG Southee || HMRKB Herath || JR Hazlewood

    Well, Nuffers ran something similar and then took forever to let us know who he thought was the 6th best team. So as long as you promise to get this done within some reasonable time frame, I am in. And you gotta clarify what we are playing for here. Exact middle of the table. In which case we will need an odd number of participants.

    i thought that we'd vote on the most average team but voting on the best team and picking the middle one works so much better

    i'd put it to vote though i wouldn't decide it myself which would streamline it - my mistake to noof that i didn't realise he'd run a similar one so thanks for the heads up (search function is for dickheads and people who respect general internet etiquette)

    I'll have a go.
    But l will second the call to define exactly how they will be assessed. Worst and most average are quite different.

    most average as i said in the OP

    "eh"

    i am a fan of the idea of drafting the most average teams, voting for the best and awarding the win to the team with the median vote count.

    Ah yeah I see. Missed the 'not' on first read. Will be a heavily tactical battle which makes an interesting draft

    Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
    If I run I can free my worried mind
    Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
    But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

    You can't ask people which team is the best because a team everyone agrees is middling would then get no votes. Just ask people to put the teams in order.
