Solutions To Make A Better Draft.

Posted by: kevin moghaddam on 2011-10-12 14:41:18


I have a great idea about the draft that I think would make a lot of people happy.

What don't we have the 6 of the 8 captians do the draft and then Me and Josh just take the last 16 players available.

Or How About this:

We put each name in a balloon and blow them up and staple them to a board and just throw darts. Whatever name is in the baloon you popped is who you get.

This is the best idea I have read so far.


Guest @ 2011-10-12 20:31:49

I think I have the winning idea here:

We line up all the players in a line with their backs to the captains. We put blind folds on all the captains with a pin and a tail in hand. They have to walk up to the player line and whichever player they put the tail on, that's who they have selected.


Guest @ 2011-10-12 20:43:15

Ive got a better idea. When someone sneaks in two players by lying to all the captins we take away his first two picks the following season and give him two extra picks in the last round. That way he is better able to sneak more people in by lying.

Was not present during draft. Curious to know how exactly Moghaddam cheated...

Guest @ 2011-10-13 09:40:08

I was and...

As I was drafting for a captian who was not able to attend I went around and asked everyone I could about the players who were to be drafted. I even went to Kevin's office to discuss the players he was bringing in. I was told that he really didnt know anything about them. That one of them he had spoken with his wife and she said he was ok. He told me that neither were very atheletic or had played in a long time.

I found out after the draft, and the 11v11 game that this was not quite true. That he knew both were actually quite good. He even apparently plays poker with one from time to time.

I will defend Kevin about Shawn. Those of us who did our homework new he was supposed to be decent. Kevin actually picked him right before I was going to. He did not cheat in getting Shawn. He did lie about both Ty and Rogelio.

That said, Iyad did the same thing and has for years. He always down plays his friends. I dont know why, he drafts them and then they stand and argue with each other almost the entire game! It is a normal game that the captains have played for years. Many captains have done it, Kevin just cheats better!

If Shawn had ended up on any other team, this conversation probably wouldnt be happening. I top 10-15 guy that nobody knows about doesnt show up often.

That said, Kevin and his mouth are making the situation worse. Damn dude...shut up! lol

Guest @ 2011-10-13 12:37:00

oops.. That was Chase

Guest @ 2011-10-13 12:37:27

Fact of the matter is. Kevin did what has been done in the past many times by many different captains. Like Josh the first year with Mylar. It happens, other captains tried this year as well (Iyad with Dr. Al Haj). He just was not as successful as Kevin was in recruiting an outstanding player. Also, there were other captains at the table that were trying to get Shawn the same way Kevin did they had the same information and did not share with anyone else.

I think that there are things that can be done to better even out the process. We have talked many times about having the captains pick themselves in the appropriate round so that Josh and Kevin do not automatically get 2 first round picks by way of captaincy. We have also talked that new guys need to play some pick-up prior to the season (not always possible). Blind draw for the new guys in the last round would be even then no one can cry foul. There will still be bitching and complaining because that goes best with the beer after the game.

Guest @ 2011-10-13 12:41:02

should change draft format as previously suggested...

Guest @ 2011-10-13 14:17:51

Let kevin play and draft in the height appropriate league. Those soccer cleats with the lifts are expensive and it is probably a struggle with the money he is paying to the hair club for men

Guest @ 2011-10-13 15:06:27

I like the balloon and darts idea best (lol). Hiram

Guest @ 2011-10-13 18:25:11

I drafted Rogelio in the 5th round and Ty in the last round.

If I thought Ty was really good, would I have waited until the last round befor picking him ?
People start picking names in that round and someone could have easily picked him.

I played poker with Ira Goodsaid. Not any of the other players.

Bottom line is, do some homework before the draft if u want to have a good draft.

Stop complaining about cheating.


Guest @ 2011-10-13 18:42:01

Question. Is Chase playing in the league or better yet what is his roll in the league. If he is not playing and is drafting for a capyian, is that right?
Since he isnt playing, can he take his ball over to Reza and Cuthbert's house and play with them?

Guest @ 2011-10-13 20:31:19

if you have to pick yourself as a player in the appropriate round, what happens if someone else picks you before you pick yourself? are you still the capt of the team?

and that was a cheap[ shot on chase whoever posted that...but funny.


Guest @ 2011-10-13 20:34:50

My role is as obnoxious antagonist...Sorry, that may be over Darryls head. In south carolina red neck that is loud mouth poop stirring outsider. Darryl, even without playing a minute this season, I have done more to help blue than you have your team all season!

Oh crap...he may be officiating in WR on Saturday. Not like he would of done well but now I am sure to my kids will get screwed!


Guest @ 2011-10-13 20:54:54

When you guys are ready for me to tell you how to fix all this let me know. Otherwise I will continue to enjoy my vacation.

Guest @ 2011-10-14 09:33:17

Slack ass Oakie...I didnt right crap about you so shut your mouth up or i'll stick one of your hilti tools up your loose stool arse.


Guest @ 2011-10-14 09:52:26

Just for the records, during the draft and when I was asked about the level of the new players I was bringing, I said they were average. When asked to specify who would be an example of average I said alan bass. If you are familiar with the players I brought by now then you know I gave an accurate statement.

Guest @ 2011-10-14 16:53:02

"and that was a cheap shot at chase" isnt writting anything about me? And, I am not sure you could lift my tool!! lol

Guest @ 2011-10-14 20:09:58

Hey chase, if u read the article u will see there are 2 separate articles there. The first that makes comments about u was written by guest. Darrell wrote the one after.
I think u owe Darrell an apology. Maybe even some flowers.
I know u r old and crippled but I thought u could at least read.


Guest @ 2011-10-14 22:18:30

i was just pointing out that whomever wrote that made a cheap shot against you, i wasnt saying i agreed with it but rather it was funny. no need to apologize, between you and me we know its beneath you.
i could think you wrote that post about me officiating next year instead of playing but i didnt. i can take a joke.
if you question my officiating, you may want to talk to tripp, ive officiated more games for him than in warner robins this year.

and thanks kevin. i actually agree with you and see no fault in what you did. sun tzu.


Guest @ 2011-10-15 06:57:27

Why is everyone complaining about the draft? There are always some teams better and some teams worse. If I read the standings right it shows white with a loss already and barely winning a couple of the other games. It sounds like some of you are just poor losers and bad sports. Pretty sad actually. Why not just play and have fun. It's over-30 by the way.

Guest @ 2011-10-15 14:08:10

because the game is actually more enjoyable when it is close and each team has a decent chance of winning.
whats really sad, is not the whining about the draft. it is the better players in the league trying to win with cheap tactics.
White lost, true...they were missing some guys including KM. at full squad, no team in the league stands a chance.

Guest @ 2011-10-15 16:23:37

some people take the stuff on hear way to seriously...If I miss read who the post was from. Fine, I appologize. I guess making a silly joke with no meaning can be offensive...

PS...if I have anything that is serious, I will say it to a persons face. Not on a stupid chat room. The point of this room is to joke and talk trash. If that is too much, maybe we shouldnt be in here. Wow...


Guest @ 2011-10-15 18:16:16

You know Chase, I totally agree.

Not with you though, with the person that said no other team in the league stands a chance.


Guest @ 2011-10-15 22:29:54

I agree with you Chase. but when you make an unfounded attack at me for something i did not say or post and assume it was me i have a problem with it.

anyhew, change the draft and get better officilas to do the games. thats all i have to say.

"I only hid one player during the draft." - Magic
Slowly but surely the truth is coming out.

The Toe @ 2011-10-16 18:46:55

this is people are complaining about not knowing how good the players in the draft pool are. It's not really cheating that Kevin knows more people that are in the draft than the other captains. If people are complaining about that...have a draft skills day that is mandatory if you want to play in the league. All of the players come out and all of the captains come out. The players run a few the 40...and so then each captain gets a clear picture of what kind of player each is...NOW...if you feel this is too much to do...then stop complaining...simple as that...and this is from a nonbias outsiders perspective...

Guest @ 2011-11-13 09:01:24

We need to get Cuthbert and Reza back in the league. Anyone know why they are not playing?

Guest @ 2011-11-15 11:17:36

My immediate isesprmion of the first fifteen seconds (and its transition into the first loop) was that you were going for a sort of cinematic build up, and for the rest of the draft I was confused that the feeling seemed to walk right out the door at 0:32. There was too much utility in those moments, and it's a shame that it wasn't developed somehow. Technically speaking, the rest of the piece is well constructed, and the transitions are effective, but I didn't feel enough follow through from the beginning.

Guest @ 2014-02-16 16:44:43

I lie the sound you have. I think experimenting with logic will give you bit of iiransption in terms of creating a larger composition. But obviously you have the ear to pick out something cool.Keep experimenting and recording and I think you will come up with something awesome!
