Copy & Paste here we go:

FIF Fantasy Draft
We did one of these a few years back and it was quite fun, but it completely hit the floor. The premise is as follows: about 8 people volunteer, and they take turns drafting/selecting players from across the world. Each volunteer selects a starting eleven, and after the draft is complete, the community votes for what in their opinion was the best starting eleven, and that person is declared the winner.

The draft is a snake draft. For instance, if Shaun has the first pick of round one, he receives the last pick of round two. If Black Jesus has the last pick in round one, he gets the first selection of round two. There will be eleven rounds, and you can select any player you want (no position restrictions). However, once a player has been selected, other teams cannot pick them. If Shaun selects Messi first, no other team can select Messi.

The goal is to build the most complete squad possible. Strategy is incorporated as well, based on the type of team you want and what others decide to do. You may decide you couldn't care less who your goalie is, and wait until the eleventh round to select one. But if other owners start drafting Neuer and Courtois in round two, you might be at a disadvantage in the eyes of others on the forum. Also, you must choose what formation you want to run with.

So, if you're interested and will be on the forum frequently over the next week or so, just post that you're interested and I'll randomize a draft order once we get eight. I won't participate unless we get desperate, but I'll keep a tab on who selects whom, and who's turn it is to pick.

Stole these from the old thread that the OC made:

Rules:

- 8 posters are participating in this competition.
- The aim of the competition is to select a team of 11 players (1 must be a goalkeeper, 3 to 5 defenders, 2 to 5 midfielders and 1-4 attackers), choosing from players playing today, and keeping in mind their general form right now and within the last year (as a rule of thumb). The general idea is to make the best team possible.
- The participants will each take turns to select one player in ascending order (Participant 1 will select first, followed by Participant 2, then Partipant 3 etc.).
- Once the first round of the draft is complete (all 8 participants have chosen a player), the second round begins. It operates the same as the first draft, except this time in descending order (Participant 8 picks first, Participant 7 picks second, etc.). This is to ensure that those towards the end of the list get fair picks.
- You have 24 hours to pick your draft, so check this thread often if you're involved. If you don't draft within the 24 hours, your turn will be forfeited and go on to the next participant on the list - you'll get two picks your next turn instead. Also, write a quick writeup on the player you've chosen (not an essay, just a few lines), eg. 'why he fits into your team, his strengths' and so on. Maybe even add a picture of the player in question, just for the heck of it.
- When selecting a player, it's generally a good idea to have a balanced mix of defensive and attacking players, as your team will be going up against another poster's team - see yourself as a coach, where things like tactics matter - it's not a competetion about having the 11 best players, but the single greatest team.
- Not a rule per se, but I think it would help things run smoothly if the when a person has picked a player, send a PM to the next guy in line to know it's his turn.
- I'll try to organize this thing as well as I can. So your only job, if you're participating, is just to follow the rules and have fun in the best football-nerdy way possible!

By the way, if you feel you may be unavailable for your pick in 24 hours, feel free to send me a list of maybe 3 players in order of who you want incase you can't post.

My word, Ol' Dylloboy's gone and had a mare. I was merely taking a dig a Ed, not registering. I won't openly admit it, but somewhat subconsciously I'm probably still furious at being eliminated by way of coin toss (Uni, you lamebrain :flirt:) - or, 'the great travesty of 2016', as the incident is more widely known.

I think JJM wants a go. Personally, I'm looking forward to his all-Inter lineup.
