I would propose a snake draft order but have a random name drawn to start each round, like you are going to do with round 1. Then when pick #16 starts round 2 he can't use the same name/initial that he used with his last pick from round 1 and must start over. Everyone would have to consider payback that way as well.
Question is.......... does this give an unfair advantage to #1 and #16??

I think that would be a huge advantage for pick #1.

Being last(or first) in each round with a draft like this means absolutely nothing.

Maybe mix up the order every 5 rounds.
This would be another possibility.

How about something like this:
R1 = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
R2 =15 16 13 14 11 12 9 10 7 8 5 6 3 4 1 2
R3 =16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
R4 = 2 1 4 3 6 5 8 7 10 9 12 11 14 13 16 15


It would be snake style, would allow teams to pick in reverse order and would keep teams #16 and #1 from making back-to-back picks when we advance to the next round. You could repeat the same order every 4 rounds.

By matching exactly, I would assume that Jimmy Piersall and Jimmie Foxx would not be a match, correct?

And also that Jimmie Foxx and Nellie Fox would not be a match, right?

This might be the best solution for those who oppose the standard order.  I personally still prefer the straight 1-16 each round.  But still willing to consider other options.

That's correct.

I will play
7/3/2014 4:41 PM
Cool.  Thanks for playing.  We just need 4 more now.
7/11/2014 9:58 AM
I have no problem doing this with 12.
7/12/2014 7:28 PM
I'd like to wait just a little longer to try for 16, if we don't get there we could go to 12.
7/14/2014 8:53 PM
I would drop if we go down to 12. Only 2 playoff teams then instead of 4.
7/15/2014 10:17 AM
I'll play, cstrohmier.
