Coolmay, brider, bmamba, & alopez haven't opened their mail yet on the proposed vote. I do believe coolmay's vote should tell us if it is a good idea to start over.

  I'm okay with starting over if that's what the group wants to do.  I actually like bfhendricks idea with one minor adjustment.  (That the random teams in each era would be teams that did not make the playoffs for that given year).

I sent this to snydpie, but figured it might make sense to post here too. 

Why not simply say, every owner gets one of these at random.

1. Team before 1975. 
2. 1975-1984
3. 1985-1994
4. 1995-2004
5. 2005-2014

The positions would still be random, and everyone would get teams from the same eras. 
Are you suggesting something like(if generated):

PG: 95-04 team
SG: 75-84 team
...

If so I'd be down for that.

Other than possibly bfhendricks idea, I'd probably be most open to option #4, snydpie.

That's exactly what I'm proposing. This way, everyone gets a pre-merger team, and everyone gets some more recent players too. I'd be OK with the no playoff teams conversation if that's what everyone wants.

If you did it the way I am proposing, you would only have a 26% chance of getting a team prior to ABA/NBA merger and a 15% chance of getting a team prior to 1970 on each draw.  This is significantly less than how it is currently.
So are you suggesting I draw 5 different times from your list or all 5 at one time? I believe you are suggesting 5 different draws but just want to make sure.

Well, originally I would have said all five at once.

But if we go with the grouping idea I believe bfhendricks proposed, then I would say one at a time for each group.

Still better to use that list than your original method to weight the years properly.

my vote is for #5 as well

Willing to play with bfhendricks idea if that's what the group thinks will provide the fairest team balance

I will draw all 5 at one time.

That makes it the easiest for sure.

It would be good to have a log of who is in on the first page.

So what is going to decide what team gets assigned to what position? Better, what era gets assigned to what position? I assume that will somehow be randomized as well.
