What if we cut the budget slightly this month and either:

1.) randomed off the hits from the 4 undrafted teams


2.) Gave hits from the undrafted teams to folks who had bad months

At some point, it's hard to get excited about ending up last and stuck with Florida or Atlanta (especially in a double month)

So leave the clunkers to be randomized amongst the group, and simply knock the $50 off the budget.

Yes that double month where you end up drafting last is very disappointing, but what I miss is having a break each month. The longer we wait the more of a chance of prices changing. If a hot product hits like S1 and you do not buy it early it can climb significantly. Look at the 07-8 UD S1 with all the good rcs, those hobby boxes are selling around $80 vs around $60 when they first came out, which ultimately means less product and hits for the money we are spending.

Mark I like your idea. That way if we get 14 people then only two teams get randomed and if we drop to 12 owned we have 6 teams randomed. I could agree with either method for dealing with the randomized cards for those teams. This works for me. Anyone else want to weigh in?
