I've followed the league way more in depth this year than I have in seasons past. Add this with me reading Simmons' Book of Basketball, and the NBA has become something that I thought it never would become - must view television.
It didn't hurt that the Bobcats were somewhat decent this year, but they were never on TV. I watched all the games I could.
Yeah, I think that's the way I'm going. I'm not sweating the keepers since I doubt either Weaver or Porcello would sniff my 5 (besides the pitchers Fielder, Miguel Cabrera, Kemp, Markakis). Just couldn't decide if losing a 2nd pitcher was worth Lind. But I think I'm going to try it without them and go with the 2-for-2 if necessary.
Draft is Monday and it's usually a show full of matches to make the 15 or so switches during the program and then there's the supplemental 15 or so the next afternoon.
Anyway, with the absense of a real Wrestlemania game this year, how about one with the Draft?
Here's the rules, as simple to make the game as possible:
1. Select 15 wrestlers and the shows they will be traded to. 2. 1 point for getting the wrestler right, 1 point for the show. 3. You are allowed to pick a wrestler twice (meaning they switch shows twice in the evening or supplemental or a trade within the week). Getting this wrestler right on both counts, including shows for each switch gets you the 2 points for each move, and a bonus 2 points for taking a chance on something with minimal chance of happening.
For example: If you pick Smackdown Wrestler A to be traded to ECW, and this is exactly what happens, you get 2 points. If you predict this wrestler will move again during the whole festivities and say he gets traded to Raw, and this happens exactly, you get another 2 points for correctly getting another trade, and 2 bonus points for getting both trades exactly correct.
Simple enough I think. If anyone has any suggestions to changes, whether it be how many wrestlers are picked or something in the rules, lets make a deadline until Friday Night, and by then hopefully I'll update this to the final rules and lets say after 12:00 PM EST (Afternoon) on Saturday, we can start making our picks.
The game will end after the completion of Smackdown next week, to give the WWE enough time to complete a supplemental draft and any trades they decide to do. After that, I'll tabulate scores and we'll have a winner.
*Side note - In an effort to keep this thread clean and organized, I'm going to make a draft thread over in the wrestling board section for discussing the show and if you want, to discuss your picks for this game and your reasonings.
I'm in, I already have my picks (and yes, I have real life friends who will be watching with us and competing in our Wrestlemania pool...although we are all poor, and thus don't do it for money, but instead pass around a toy WWE CHampionship belt.)
Okay, so all of you computer wizards out there, explain to me what happened:
I had the 12-Pack ready to go, with 11 of 12 pictures properly coded. I was creating a picture of The Young Bucks when BAM! My IE starts opening about 1.5 million new tabs on me, I couldn't even try to close them before 5 more opened. I don't know what the limit is, but soon, new browsers started opening as well. I had to go all over the place to find a good pic of The Young Bucks, so I assume I opened something bad.
Clearly you clicked on a link that snelson gave you.
