    Not going to be around for the rest of the day and Edgar banned Best as well so I just might go with the best name on the top of my head. Doesn’t block too many and hasn’t won anything of note.

    A never-nude? I thought he just liked cut-offs.
    @Gio Clock is ticking mate, so I think you only have until 9am to make your pick.

    It should be to my advantage for you to miss your pick, but given that I have no idea what do to here it's probably better for me if the options are narrowed down ever so slightly.

    So how does this work.
    Romario counts as both a WC winner and Copa America winner?

    Fantastic pick for this draft. Looking forward to seeing more Eastern Europeans — I had hoped that the EE draft will make them more popular but sadly it's not the case aside from a few names.

    Being the kind, merciful protector of innocent drafters, that you are, I bet you can beat this urge and remain a champion of the masses!

    We all promise to dedicate the next draft in your honor!
