2012 Champions League Draft Rules 

The draft beginning date is no later than 6pm, February 13, 2012.  A Draft Thread will be established for drafting purposes only.  When the draft begins, the manager with the first pick will be able to make his/her selection.  Once that pick is made and posted, the next manager will have 24 hours to post their selection.  Please note:  it is not necessary to use your entire 24 hours.  In order to keep the draft moving, post your picks as soon as possible when it becomes your turn to draft.  I highly suggest having a back up plan (or 3) in place for every position, and keeping track of the rosters.

If you do not make your pick within your 24 hour window, the next manager will be able to pick.  If you do miss your turn, that slot will remain empty until the draft is complete.  At that time, you will be able to make a selection (or selections) to fill your empty roster spots. 

If you select a player who has already been drafted, the next manager is able to make their pick.  The duplicate pick will not be listed and your roster spot will remain open until the draft is complete.  At that time, you will be able to make a selection (or selections) to fill your empty roster spots.  If you realize you’ve made an error in picking a player who has already been drafted, you may edit your selection so long as the next manager has not posted their draft choice.

This format will require you to pay close attention to the draft and will help to move the draft at a quick pace.  If you feel you will not be around to make your pick (or picks) during your allotted time frame, PM your pick (along with a list of alternated choices) to another manager to post your picks in your absence.  Please make a short post in the Discussion Thread with the name of the person who will be posting for you.

Managers who will be picking back-to-back at the bottom or top of each round will have 24 hours to post both draft picks.

If a manager misses 2 of their first 3 picks, they will be replaced by the commissioner.

If the draft is not complete by March 21, the 24 hour window will become a 12 hour window to ensure we complete the draft on time. \

The Draft Thread is for draft picks only.  Chatter belongs in the Discussion Thread.
