Create Transaction

Guys, I've created this topic so that all of our members may discuss what they'd like to see done differently with this group going forward. I'd also like to get you guys to confirm whether or not you're going to remain in the group for next month.

I've listed below a few things that come to mind that have been mentioned.

Card Distribution

There is currently a small gray area that it seems some cards seem to fall in to that needs to be cleared up. Here is my suggestion on the way the cards should be handled in the future, in this order:

1) The cards will go to the team printed on the card.
2) The cards will go to the team pictured in the uniform.
3) The cards will go to the team the player currently plays for.
4) The cards will go to the team the player was drafted to.
5) The cards will go to the team the player played for the longest (or is best known for).

Draft Order

This is one of the biggies that I would like to hear several opinions on. It's been suggested that we use a snake draft. I would suggest that we have 2 random orders, for the 1st and 3rd rounds. Then we will snake the 1st round to make the 2nd round, and snake the 3rd round to make the 4th round.

Break Months

At least a few people have stated that they'd like to see this group become a bi-monthly group, or a quarterly group. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. If we do this, what do you guys think about bumping the fee to $50 a person to allow for a better box selection, adding to the number of possible hits we could pull?

Please let me know what you think about these decisions. These are ones we'll definitely need to come to a decision on before we decide to continue on with future months. We'll be going with the majority on all of them.

Now, here is something I'd like to talk about that hasn't been brought up yet. Right now the rule says that everyone must take 1 team from each sport. What would you guys think about changing this so that anyone can take a team from any sport in any round, as long as all their teams don't all come from the same sport? I think this would make the drafting process a lot more interesting, while at the same time allowing members who may not collect one or more of the sports to not have to end up with cards they do not want.

Also, if you'd like to see something else done differently please mention it in this topic so that we can discuss it before the break starts rolling along again.
