Last Draft of the Decade - OOfficial Signup

A draft has been discussed in another thread, but this can act as the official signup.

Both the standard OOfficial draft and a salary cap draft are on the table, so state your preference if you want in.

EDIT: With Slade's comment below, I'm gonna say we go that route and make this the signup for the standard OOfficial draft. I'll estimate a start date of December 1st (or earlier).

Iím in for either. I donít know if you want to do the regular draft now and save the salary cap as a special one for later, or make the salary cap draft the new norm.

I'm in for either. I like the idea of running a standard rules draft now and do the salary cap draft a few months later. I'd happily volunteer to run the salary cap draft again. And while I think it's really fun, I don't think we should make it the new norm. However, I love apportioning out dollar values as votes, and would go for that as the new norm for voting.

Iíd support ticket buying voting. Itís a little more complicated but a fairer shake I think.

If anyone wants a partner that can help me with the stories and promotion thread, I'd appreciate that as I love the drafting and card putting together but don't have the time/energy/motivation to do the deeper stuff.

I'm in. Like ticket voting. Happy to wait on salary. Probably too swamped with work for writeups but someone should pair with Dev.

Keeping this active for the next few days at least, to see if any stragglers wander in. There are a few regulars who I wouldn't mind seeing join (Fifth, First, Liz).

On the fence right now with real life stuff, but a suggestion - typically, we all do a minimum of four cards. What if those four cards were the "big 4" WWE cards? Each of you/us would have to do a Rumble-type show, Wrestlemania, Summerslam, and a Survivor Series. Post them in any order you want, so for example, my SS might be up against Slade's Royal Rumble show. Once you make it to the finals, you can do any card you want.

Or not. Just a thought.

What's the big difference between Summer Slam and Wrestlemania?

I also think some guys would shit a brick if they were forced to book a Royal Rumble match or multiple Survivor Series matches on one card.

Unless it's a specific booking challenge type of thing, which the general draft never is, I'm against saying you have to book certain cards certain ways.

I'd be up for giving that a try, but I'd prefer to have everyone book their Royal Rumble at the same time. I just feel like if you're one of the three people doing it during a particular round when everyone else isn't, you're significantly handicapping yourself, and all three of you will end up dead last in revue for that round.

I'm game to try that out to - seconding what Slade said on all the Rumbles happening at the same time.

In fact - I would go one further and say that if we go this route, we should book the big 4 in order starting with Summer Slam. So the round orders would be:

Round 1: Summer Slam
Round 2: Survivor Series
Round 3: Royal Rumble (in which we should all reveal who wins the Rumble on our card as that generally significantly contributes to what many consider to be a good Rumble match)
Round 4: Wrestlemania

In regards to Survivor Series: I would say the rule should be only one Survivor Series match is required on the card but that people should feel free to book more if it suits them.

Also - booking Wrestlemania will be fun as it means we all get to try our hands at booking that special Wrestlemania card.

I really like this idea - it's a slight twist on the traditional draft format and goes a long way to making "THE LAST DRAFT OF THE DECADE" feel special.

I want:

Round 1 - Battlebowl
Round 2 - Hog Wild
Round 3 - Halloween Havoc '95 (must book at least one Monster Truck Sumo Match)
Round 4 - Uncensored '96 (must book at least one Tower of Doom/Triple Cage Match)

(Itching to go here!)
