Just an update as two of our newest bookers are first and may not know the rules of this draft.

 

Each month we draft any workers who are debuting or returning that month. If you draft, you move to the back of the line and can continue to draft workers as your turn comes up (and continue moving to the end of the line) until you are done. If you don't want to draft anyone this month, you can PASS and that means you keep your spot for the next month's draft.

 

So, Memphis is up now and can pick or pass, followed by Florida, followed by JCP.

All I've got right now is up to January.

 

KrisZ does it even though he dropped out a few weeks ago. He's busy, but was able to do January. He might do February soon too, I don't know.

 

We typically had 3 months to see before we finished out the year for September.

Don't overthink it. Is there someone you could really see as worth the value of losing your #1 spot? If there is, take them. If there isn't then pass. The only person who has gotten taken with the #1 pick so far is Marty Jannetty if that helps you figure out what the value of that pick might be.

That will change though. Think of when guys like Michaels, Austin, Sting, Luger & Dustin become available. Those are going to be heavily planned months before that.

Right.

 

If you don't see anyone you REALLY want right now, just know that there will be a bunch of debuts coming in 1984/1985 and that you can keep your spot as long as you want provided you don't pick.

Under this system, I will pass but wouldn't it make more sense to do a random draw or base the draw on lottery numbers or something?

 

With this system, no one will make trades for fear of losing their "spot" whereas a random draw can create a flurry of activity before the draft and possibly during the year trading for potential futures.

We aren't redrawing.

 

It's not like there's a ton of high quality talent available in these yet to provoke a flurry of trades. There have been months where people draft a ton and some where they don't. If we randomize it again, it'll be unfair for those of us who are just now getting to the top of the list. And frankly, there's no reason to redraw.

 

It works fine. This is a rule that does not need to be changed, especially at this point.

Gotta agree this system is fine it's not like there is a ton of useful talent that gets introduced each month and a lot of the guys haven't even been getting drafted lately.
