I figure there will be many of us staying up to watch the first round of the draft on April 30th. I therefore had plans to setup some sort of text based chat group for the night, probably via Skype (as its free and easily available to all). This would give all us off season nut jobs the place to rant over the picks to people who… well, are also off season nut jobs.
Then I figured that might get boring as the night unfolds so I am planning to add a new fantasy concept/game to the night whereby people can pit their war room, coach, squad, college ball, draft & combine knowledge against each other.
Basically it would be £10 entry, each player would be supplied with a spreadsheet which they use to list their idea of what each team might pick, all players would be required to upload their completed spreadsheet 30 mins before the draft starts. All entry money will go back into prizes which will be split depending on how many entries we have. The winner will be he/she who has obtained the most points through correctly selecting franchise draft picks.
This only relates to round one and the winner will be announced by the evening of June 1st on this site. Ultimately I’m trying to create a friendly but competitive night for people who enjoy the game/off season instead of us all sitting at home alone, picking our noses.
So…If interested in either or both the Skype group chat / the War Room Challenge please let me know by the 23rd. If we get enough interest I shall send out more info.
