    I disagree.

    which every vowel appears, in order
    You didn't say "once" there at all. Every vowel appears in "facetiousness", in order. Counts.

    Anyway, what about "facetiously"? Probably an even better example as it encompasses the "sometimes Y" rule.

    Really struggling for any decent picks for this round. I've got a couple of ideas for the very late rounds, but they're not good picks at this stage.

    Yeah, kinda in the same position. Might just have to upgrade them a couple of rounds.

    Benkenstein is a fantastic pick at this stage, IMO.

    Benkenstein wasn't selected in Season 1 if I recall correctly. Perhaps the field is starting to dilute?

    Spark's stats show that he was picked - played 10 games averaging a shade over 36.

    He's no spring chicken though, not much of sustainable pick in the long run. Assuming we do a few seasons of this.

    Depends when we have redrafts as well.

    Sorry, I should have checked. Decent performance last season, however not a steal this far into the draft.

    Anyone picking for the long term is doing it wrong. We only had four retentions this year despite retaining quite a number of teams. Everyone loves a draft.

    I detected your facetiousness but assumed you were doing it somewhat sarcastically to defend your pick against an attack that I hadn't in fact made. As it turned out, your facetiousness merely stemmed from the fact that you're facetious.
    you sound surprised?
