I'm done - no offense to anyone in the group. Just bad luck in the random draft - and the drafting process is too looooong! You want to REALLY make it interesting (and completely fair) randomize all the teams, by sport, to everyone. Then you'd have no idea what team you're getting, and there would be no week (or longer) draft process! Some of the best hits have come from teams nobody really cared about. Anyways, good luck and mucho mojo to you all!

I hate to see you go Jeff, but understand your points. However, just as unfair you felt the random draft for each round was, I don't see how giving everyone a random team would be any better. I know I like having the opportunity to pick the teams I want each month.

I'll be in again, and will pay double due to you covering me last month. As for the rules for the group heres what I think

Team LISTED on the card it should go to. If you made it the team they currently play for you may pick a team to get a certain player and then that player gets pulled but let's say is traded 5 days before the break. That would absolutley not be fair.

Break months:

If we up it to $50 even if we do the break every other month then I will have to withdraw from the group. Even though I'd still be paying $50 within two months. I am on a $50 budget every month, so doing the break every month I have $25 left over.

Draft Order:

Snake is the way to go. Only fair way at this point. I would say Random 1 and 3 like Steve said and snake 2 and 4

I like the proposed changes with regards to drafting. I am also favorable to a $50 bi-monthly break, so we can get a better selection of boxes. Count me in smile.gif

I was just thinking, it might also not be a bad idea to start talking boxes. I'll post up a tentative list tonight at some point. In the mean time, what do you guys think about breaking Icons football? I'd really like to get a look at the product, but it could also mean randoms. It's also pretty "hit or miss" from what I've seen. I'd still like to try it, but give me your thoughts. I was thinking 1 box of Icons and 1 box of Classics as our football boxes.

Also, I was thinking that for the sports that don't have any new products, we might start digging back a good ways at older products that have already dropped in price to help maximize the number of hits/inserts we can get. Cheaper boxes equals more boxes!

As primarily a football collector, those football boxes seem like the ones to break for August. As far as the Fleer Ultra Hockey, perhaps we could get rid of that and put that money ($36.95) towards upgrading another product. Keep in mind, I do not know much about hockey cards and I do not know how good or bad Fleer Ultra hockey is. Just seems like we may be better off canning that product if we can make better use.

Let me know what you guys think?

I'm afraid with A&G there will be too many randoms, but if you guys want to do it, I'd LOVE to open a box! As far as hockey goes, I really don't know much about the hockey products yet as far as which ones are good or not. One of the reasons I wanted to start this break. smile.gif I'm up for whatever you guys want. What would you recommend as a replacement that would offer the same number of hits as those 2?

A&G will cause WAY too many randoms. I say take out 09 Finest though and maybe do 08 Triple Threads or something.

Order everything from either Dacardworld or everything from Blowout. Blowout is usually cheaper but Dacardworld gives nice products depending on how much is bought

08 Triple Threads is nearly twice as much as the Finest, so we wouldn't be able to use that as a replacement. I wouldn't mind doing a box of A&G, as it still gives us 3 hits, and a good amount of other inserts. The only thing is the randoms. I don't mind doing them at all, if you guys don't mind them either. Also, I'd still like to hear at least 1 more suggestion for what to do about the hockey selection.

Still have some open spots? I'll take one this month!

EDIT: Actually, only if it's a $25 spot.. Not interested in a $50/month spot at the moment.

Yes, it will remain at $25/spot and I've put you down. Please let us know what you think about the box selection. The only change so far looks like Finest for Allen and Ginter baseball.

Here is a link to the post. Keep in mind this is just a tentative list for August's break. Nothing is in concrete, so if you'd like to suggest a swap, just let us know.

Click here to view the tentative list for August.

Also, swapping Finest for Allen and Ginter frees up another $10 or so to add in to hockey if we choose to replace a few of those products.

Guys, it doesn't look like we're going to get any more votes on the topics at hand. That said, I'm going to tally the votes that we did get and go with the majority on those. I will be starting August's thread soon, with the new rules outlined. That will also give us a chance to get the box selection finalized before I go on vacation next Tuesday.

Attention: We're still looking to fill 1 more spot. If you would like to join us, please post in the thread or feel free to PM me. Slots are given out on a first come, first serve basis.
