agree with beam, we were on the main page for ages and the situation was pretty much identical to this

We are not in vacuum you know.

There is shortage of posts in general and not related to this. We are fine.
Are they down just since coronavrius stopped the football calendar or has there been a general drop relative to previous seasons? I don't venture much outside the draft forums so don't know

How about including a "draw" option in the match polls?

Bigger advantage: If you have voted and change your mind, you can not only switch to the opposition, but also to a draw. Which is more likely than a total 180. (I had that problem in the past.)

Smaller advantage: Neutrals who think it's a draw don't appear as absent, but their vote is a) explicit, and b) contributes to the overall turnout.

Can't see any downside.

We tried that a while ago and the general view was it just encouraged voters not to make a decision and take the easy option of a draw

would anyone be up for a NBA draft? think i saw a draft long time ago and IIRC @Moby was playing? If so, was it good and how many players would we even need?
Would go next to a football one.

The drafting was fine but the matches were pretty shit and with little activity. Wasn't easy to simulate a match in a thread. But if you are doing one then count me in.

I'm interested purely due to rekindling a fondness for the sport after watching the MJ documentary

Monopoly draft will probably be next, and I don't want to get in the way of Sjor's NBA draft, but two proposals for afterwards:

1. Build Around a GOAT
Managers pick one GOAT player & try to build the perfect team around him. As a break from goatfests, the number of additional draft regulars is limited, so there's a focus on usually unpicked players. But not obscure ones, more like the players in this thread. Draft aims to be different from earlier drafts with a similar theme.

2. All Time Great Managers Draft
Every player picks a manager and builds a side around his basic philosophy & historical setups. So there may be knockout games of SAF vs Herrera, Cruijff vs Mourinho, Happel vs Conte. An option is keeping manager choices secret during the drafting process.

Any interest in one (or both)?

nah, NBA one would have nothing to do with football ones....they can go in same time if we ever even try but can imagine the matches being dull, even more so then football ones.

In for both :D

@Indnyc are you going ahead with Monopoly Draft? Just asking cause I’ve been working on a board as well. The challenge is getting the financial balance right at the moment.

it’s not ready yet though and may not be for a while yet. So if yours is ready to go you can go ahead.

Don't think he's been online for a while mate, i say you go ahead and throw up the thread for yours and get the sign ups going.

Yeah, ok. I'll get on it. Mine is a bit different anyway as it involves clubs. I've still got a bit of work to do to get it right. In the meantime, if anyone else has an idea we can simply go ahead with that.
