your nuts

What about his nuts?

It's not a bad idea, but I like Bradley too much.

Call me crazy but Lucky's comment made me long for the good ol' days of the Celticsblog Draft.

For the uninitiated CBD was a 30-team, 13-15 round draft where each GM builds a team. See the 2008 draft board and the 2013 rules for a better sense of how it works

It's been hibernating for the last 2 summers and supplanted in some ways by the DKC (shakes fist) but was the greatest thing on the internet (IMO) for about 4-5 years (c. 2008-12).

I'm curious if folks would be interested in a revitalized go this summer. Don't know if I can full-on commish it but would work to make it happen. I would like to see the arguing demphasized (maybe through a playoffs where teams can make 1 press conf. post 1 followp and then voting; voting would make up 50% of the winner, a season-simulation the other 50%)

Anywho... this is just to start taking names:

Sign me up.

The DKC is a different beast, but I've been nostalgic for the good ol' Original Recipe CB Draft.

Don't crucify me for this but: maybe we do strictly a draft with no trades to take out loads of confusion as to who ends up where and make it a strictly draft skills based exercise.. Thoughts?

It's been almost impossible to follow and keep up with all the moving pieces in the past. This would make the draft go a lot quicker and focus on a particular skill.

Hmmm... I actually like the trade discussions, but agree there are some folks who just take things tooooo far.

I have a couple minor tweaks in mind, but don't know that I'd want to do away with trades. but that's just me.
