Teammate Twist Draft Topic

The Basics
-50 million
-No clones, WW, or rookies.
-Three round draft, ABB
The owner of the first pick in the draft will get the last pick in the second and third rounds. The owner of the last pick in the first round will get the first picks in the second and third rounds.
-Any season used by a drafted player must have a salary of at least five million.
-The other nine roster spots are filled with teammates of the three draft picks during seasons in which they played together. 
As an example, if you draft Micheal Jordan than you can use any season that he and Scottie Pippen played together. Scottie's 93-94 season and any other season in which he and Jordan did not play together would be ineligble.
-Drafted players are exclusive. 
To build on the last example, if you draft Michael Jordan and someone else drafts Dennis Rodman than you can't use Rodman's Bulls seasons on your Jordan team. Pippen, if undrafted, would have eligble seasons on both teams.

The Draft
-The draft will take place in the theme league forum.
-Random lottery to decide first draft order. Owners decide whether they want to be placed towards the top or the bottom of the draft order when they enter the league.
Any future league draft order would be based on finish from the ending win-lose record from the previous year with new owners being placed at the bottom. After the lottery is finished, owners will be seeded by whether they chose top or bottom and their lottery ranking.
-First round is untimed. Second and third rounds will have one hour time slots before an owner can be skipped. 
After the end of the first round, a schedule for the second and third rounds will be released. 
-Timeslots will be from 9-10 am EST to 9-10 PM EST.
The second and third round will be scheduled over four days, 12 owners a day. We can finish quicker since the next owner in line is free to pick. 
-Once a owner is skipped, other owners can continue to pick until the skipped owners next time slot.
A owner that misses their second round pick may be skipped until their third round pick. At that point, the draft will be stopped until the owner makes his two picks or a replacement owner is found.

If I can suggest something for the lottery that can be resolved tonight that is 99.9999% random, take Peyton Manning's passing yardage total for tonight's game and then use that as the starting point in the number of digits after the decimal point in pi. The first 24 digits from that point will determine our lottery number (used in the order of our names appearing above). The next 24 digits can be used to break ties.

here are the digits of pi:

This post has a rating of , which is below the default threshold.
the top middle and bottom can be isolated... the luckiest top people can be grouped in order, the luckiest bottom in reverse order from bottom, and the luckiest middle is the middlest

Don't make it harder than it needs to be.  Plug each of our names into the list randomizer at and generate a list.  Then put each person in the appropriate spot in the draft.  For example:

slymonium:  closer to top
felonius:  closer to top
banditone:  closer to middle
seapilots:  closer to bottom
Ginandjuice2:  closer to bottom

Say random .org returns our random list as banditone, then felonius, then slymonium, seapilots then Ginandjuice2 as the selection order.

banditone would pick at 12 (since he wants closer to middle)
felonius would pick at 1(since he wants closer to the top)
slymonium would pick at 2 (since he wants closer to the top)
seapilots would pick at 24 (since he wants closer to the bottom)
Ginandjuice2 would pick at 23 (since he wants closer to the bottom)
