Pretty simple concept here.
The Basic Concept
2 simultaneous 12 person snake drafts
52 million cap
I. The Draft
i) The 12 owners in the Eastern Conference and the 12 owners in the Western Conference will each hold their own 12 person snake style draft.
ii) The draft pool for each conference contains all players in the WIS database for each.
iii) Drafted players are exclusive within each conference. As such, there may be two instances of any drafted player in the league. 1 per conference.
iv) We will draft 9 players. The final round will be 2 picks.
v) The final 3 roster spots are left to be filled with undrafted players (in your conference draft). There are no restrictions on these players. There are also no restrictions regarding starting lineups and/or playing time.
vi) The first 24 picks in each draft will be untimed with NO SKIPS.
vi) Once those picks are made a daily drafting schedule with 30 minute time slots will be made - running from 10 AM EST - 3:30 PM EST for the remaining rounds of drafting.
viii) Once timed drafting has begun if you miss your time slot the draft is free to run on without you until your NEXT timeslot.
ix) Draft Order: Random in season 1. Run with ODL like rules within each conference.
That is in each conference: Draft order (to select slots) is based on order of finish. (Last place from previous season can select the slot (1-12) they draft in. Each owner that follows (based on record, worst to first except playoff results) can select any slot not previously chosen. Playoff teams will select in reverse order of their playoff results. Each of the losers from the first round will be ordered by record (using WifS tie-breakers if necessary) to determine order to select slots. This is repeated each round until the playoffs end. New owners are slotted at the end of the slot selection process.
x) NO ROOKIES or WW
xi) Even trades are ok. Uneven trades.. not.
To the victor go the spoils:
I think that is pretty much it. Sign-up below and choose a conference. You are free to move conferences as long as there is room to do so.
