    Figured this is better than flooding the sign up thread.



    Todd's team is already horrible.

    The only winning move is not to play.

    Ha.

    In all seriousness, my only goal is to build a team I'd like to see out on the field together as a fan.

    That would have been fine like 12 years ago. You drafting Maurice Clarett this year? He should be finished with classes by now....

    I'll be calling up the Raiders and offering one of my 1st's for Terrell Pryor.

    Hopefully people take into account the team each GM started with rather than looking just at overall end results.

    Not to mention, any strong defensive effort should be given its due respect rather than focusing excessively on QB and receivers IMO. So far there have been 5 Super Bowls pitting the #1 Offense vs #1 Defense, and defense holds a 4-1 advantage. Pair that stat with the NFL's top defenses posting a 12-3 overall SB record compared to 10-8 for the NFL's top offenses. So, top offenses make more trips to the dance but top defenses win more hardware and head to head. Just sayin.

    We will get it filled up sooner rather than later I think. Ususualy by the rnd there are more people wanting to play than teams.

    Though it would be cool to hand out teams soon and let thr new sign ups fight for scraps :lol:

    Good points. I tried to puy bad-average teams on my list mostly because I didn't want my job to be easy. I definitely know what aspects of my team I want to focus on in order to create a winner.

    sent them all PM's with no replies. I see that schisno has been here since the PM was sent, can only assume he read it and is thinking about it. The other two have not been here since before I sent them a PM. If you guys know people (who don't visit this board) that would be interested, feel free to invite them over. If they have a favorite team that is not one of the popular teams that people are picking from, I'd be very inclined to give them that team (unless they don't want it).

    Pretty much. Hoping the rest fills out quick, I'm looking forward to beginning to formulate plans for my roster and also seeing which guys got which teams respectively.

    I've always thought voting should be done like the playoffs, you vote on each division winner then add two WC's. Then we vote game for game by matchup.

    Some of us could even provide game plans against our opponent etc.

    Just a thought.....I kinda feel like a college football team stuck in the old style if crowning a championship.

    I think the issue in the past when this was brought up, is making sire everyone actually votes.

    True but as you know what should happen and what actually happens are almost always two very different things

    Rookies should aim for AFC East or teams no one wants. You won't win a tie breaker vs established players.

    I always thought about doing something similar also. We could even do tr regular voting and do something like this additionally to see how it works out.

    Rookies are doing great so far. Just because u were stuck with Buffalo doesnt mean every rookie will fall into that. The Dolphins raffle has kind of offset the rookie thing this year so far. Some rooks are getting their first choice so far. We will see how it ends up of course.

    Big welcome to all rookies!!!

    What teams haven't been chosen in a first spot so far (not including Dolphin lists).

    NE, Jets, Bills, Steelers, Baltimore, Tennessee, Denver, Kansas City, San Diego (Really? Multiple Oakland's...but wide open AFC West?).

    Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, Lions and Bears Oh My!

    Seahawks and 49'ers.

    Really some good choices left on the board with all the folks going Dolphins lottery.

    Some of those teams are just to loaded that its not fun to take them. Ranking the teams in my top 10 was hard as I really don't have a preference for my top 3-4 teams.

    Bills are actually alot more attractive this year then last. With Manual, Woods, Kiko they added some young talent last season.

    I am tracking who is getting what (already) and so far, everyone not putting the Dolphins at #1 have a team on their top 4.

    10 1's (it'll be 11 once the Dolphins are awarded)
    3 2's
    4 3's
    2 4's

    Not bad. Figure the list will help out any of the remaining folk coming and maybe have those 2 4's rethink their spots ;p
