Draft suggestion: Never met

AndrewB

International Regular
Fairly simple draft idea - usual rules apply, plus:
- In each round after the first, your pick must either have died before your previous pick was born, or have been born after your previous pick died (and so the two players can never have met).
Your first pick can be anyone (other than Bradman).

We've had a draft where no-one could pick two people who played in the same Test.
If you mean becomes unavailable for everyone, you'd have ruled out anyone with any sort of Test career by round 2.

@AndrewB - on Bradman is he unavailable just in the first round or throughout the draft - I'm presuming the former based on your original post but just clarifying early on.

I was thinking that Bradman could be picked in later rounds, as this forces you to pick two players who died before 1908, which is quite restrictive.
But if people think we should stick to the usual "no Bradman" I'm happy to go with that.

Not available for just you. Should have specified :laugh:

Also make it an auction draft and you're all set for some fun.

Whatever it takes!!!
think he averaged out draft positions of all 10 rounds for each player. Whoever had the highest used to go first and so on.
