***American History Draft***

Recommended Posts

I have read Hiroshima Nagasaki by Paul ham. It was very good.

 

Did you get my text? I sent you my next pick, need a ruling please.

I got it but don't remember right now.

 

I, uh, I don't control my phone.

 

When I'm not working, I don't need it. But it's quite popular in the house with other people. Really, the only time I look at my phone is when the kids want me to plug in the password so they can play games. In the split second I glanced, it did register that you'd sent me some picks for the draft but I couldn't tell you what they were.

 

Now, I'll go get the phone...

------

... got it. That combo should be fine.

This thing is going at a glacial pace.

 

I dont want to be a boat rocker, and I agreed to the format, but does anyone else thing that going three rounds deep on each category is a lot?

 

Some of the categories I cant think of three at all. Even the big categories, three deep will be tough.

 

Anyway. Whatever. Im in till its done.

I'd wanted to go about 20/per like we did in theworld history draft. Up through eleven participants all numbers could get us there pretty closely (+/-2) ... all numbers except eight.

 

Eight forces us to choose between 16(x2) or 24(x3).

 

So, as has happened with every other decision to be made, when I asked for advice ... nobody weighted in with any.

I like the 3 deep, gives you thought, things like Presidents are limited to 45/24 picked and some good ones have been used elsewhere so far

 

also makes it so you can lock up a category if you are strong in a field. I took Walt Disney for example and was thinking of grabbing 2 more businessmen this last round

 

it adds more strategery

I know I am over drafting him, but I don't give a fock and eventually this is going to go to a vote and you just have to know your audience and this should lock me up a vote or two.

 

5.5 - Donald Trump - Wildcard

Yeah, definite pandering to the unwashed masses there. Meanwhile, I lost a ton of picks this past trip around the corner.

 

5.6 - Alexander Graham Bell - Inventor

5.7 Babe Ruth Baseball

 

As good a pitcher early in his career as he was a hitter.

 

The gap between what he accomplished during his era vs the next best guys is unreal.

Pretty sure he was picked.

 

Nevermind, whoever did it cancelled I guess.

William and Clarke were picked as one

 

William and Clark were known as a duo, like the Wright brothers

 

Aldrin and Armstrong were never referred to as a duo, but each as individual. Now if you wanted to say "Moon Landing" or include Michael Collins ok maybe

Yep. 90s just won the vote. We can stop now.

 

There is only one way to compete, but I wont name drop.

If I was Vegas I would have 90sbaby and -1000 after that pick.

why do you keep doing this?

 

2 sep guys

 

I shouldnt have the first time and I corrected it.

 

This time, its appropriate. They were the first to explore the moon. One drove the bus, the other got out walking.

 

If I took just one, someone else could come in and take the other. It was one achievement, just like the wright brothers and Lewis & Clarke. I want the whole achievement on my roster, I dont want to share.

OK thanks to whomever brought it up. I meant to hours ago.

TBOMB taking Neil and Buzz is a deal breaker. No way does he get both. WTF is wrong with you man ???

 

If this is allowed the whole draft is a sham. BS. Like the poster but not the picks. One or other man.
