Didn't someone bring up the idea of a draft of Buzztime players from this site? Did anything ever come of that? If not, why don't we do it? We'd just need to pick a week, get a few team captains, and a list of people who wished to be involved.

No one needs to worry about being the last one picked if I'm on the list.

Maybe pick a premium game from each night and maybe a game or two of CD and/or BTT? We'd just need to work out a fair scoring system.

I figured we could pick a different night a week for about 5 or 6 weeks and maybe the top 3-5 scores from your team of 7-10 would count. You'd play head-to-head against a different team each week and combined score wins. Would probably do the main premium game of a night and either the game right before or after it.

Can you draft phone cheats, then place them on "injured reserves"?

Violations like that can get you stripped of your sweater vest.

I see this coming a mile away.
Sure, it's all fun and games now. But what happens a few years from now when these owners feel that their trivia players are making a few too many PP points and feel that they should have a little bit bigger piece of the pie? :mrgreen:

Scheduling might be a bit awkward.
I'm not sure how I'd handle a PM from my team owner bitching about how I only put up an 8200 on a Topix game about the history of the cruller...

Yes, I have thrown out that concept several times over the years. Lots of approaches would be interesting.

I like the approach that doesn't include drug testing.

But that would tell me who to hang out with at Bargos.

I hear there's a big ditch between Bargos and the hotel. We all know how much you like ditches.

No there isn't!

I might get hit by a car, but there isn't a ditch.

Besides, I left the falling to SAKIC, DFYDCK, and Patti last yeat.

TIEFLY crossing the road + gravity = speed bump.

SPIEGS would have to be careful if they have the little parking curbs in the parking lot, though.

Perhaps average would work better than total points, unless all drafted players are committed to playing every week.

I draft ya DANTE (for your Sci-Files expertise), GAMBIT (Spotlight specialist) ROCKET (RocketRobin - My equal in Playback) and LEWSER (since MEGUMI was already taken by ANON for Speed Freaks) ;)
