    Same Name Draft

    This would be a six-round draft: in each round you pick 2 players who have a name in common, to give your final XI plus a substitute.

    My suggestion for how the rule works would be:
    - Stick to the names a player is usually known by, so no picking (say) Robert Simpson along with Robert Neil Harvey or Allan Robert Border.
    - Within that rule, allow either name to be shared, so any pair of (say) Steve James, Kevin James and James Anderson would be a valid pick.

    Anyone interested?

    Haven't done a draft here before, think it is about time I throw my hat into the ring.

    Are middle names allowed? Is picking, say a Richard and Richards allowed?
