Should we have a time limit for picks? I'm thinking something generous, like 24 hours...

24 hours is good. Doubt anyone will take that long, but it's good.

 

Just to check, I get the moon right?

24 hours is good with an immediate pick upon return. Maybe when we get to the 20th round we'll go to 12 to finish up.

I was also thinking of a database thread to house everyone's rosters.

Do we pick cities now or is that part of the draft?

That works, if the draft is still going on at that point I'll set up a proxy. Now back to figuring out who the heck to pick first.

It's a blessing and a curse. You'll set the pace for the draft with that pick for sure.

It's quite the challenge, not only who to pick first but in trying to set up a potential plan since my second pick is at the end of Round 2. But them's the breaks, just have to figure out how I want to play it.

I think the best part about this is the range... A 1989 Hogan is a lot different than. 1992 Hogan. Hell even a 1988 Barry Windham is way different than a 1992 Windham. A lot of scenarios to think about in regards to drafting a year.

Put together an initial draft board to work from... I have over 200 names on there.

Some teams I was thinking that may be troublesome for picks are like a Power and Glory. Yeah they had hype as a tag team but Hercules had a superior singles career before that tag team so they'd need to be separate. How about Tanaka and Kato? Are they a team or is it Tanaka and Diamond?

All interesting little things to consider.

In Tanaka and Diamond's case, I guess it depends...do you want the Orient Express or Badd Company. Unless you decide to go with Tanaka & Saito as the Orient Express rather than with Kato/Diamond.

A lot of people have privately messaged me about this and wanted to know... Yes midgets are eligible for the draft.

Also women are eligible if you would like to add them to your rosters for your show.
