    So when you try to hurl the word 'liberal' at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won't work, because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor.

    We just send first a list of draft participants in random order and then separately the numbers 1-14 in random order. Put them together and, voila, there's the draft order.

    Edit: Looks like it was already taken care of by Frae and CJ.

    I sent a list of numbers 1-14 in a random order, then frae sent a list of team names in random order. Currently Johnny is lining those two up to make sure I'm in the bottom half of the draft.

    I'm actually a little worried I'll get a top pick this time and then proceed to totally screw up the draft.

    I had an idea that I'm reluctant to mention, but I guess I will. For a future draft maybe we would only snake the order one time. So the team that picks first in the first round would pick last in all the rest. I'm not sure which draft position would have the advantage, which I think is a good thing.

    We had discussed doing the last round of the draft blind (I can't remember exactly what was proposed) so that no one would be in the role of kingmaker and so that the folks at the very end of the draft didn't have much more information than those at the beginning.

    I like that idea

    I mean, if we have 14 drafters and #1 and #14 are vying for the top spot at the end of the draft, one or the other will have a pretty big advantage (depending on whether we end on an even-numbered or odd-numbered round).

    I really like that idea, even though I'm sure it hurts me and the other chumps who don't know how to project other teams.
    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.
