Indeed, that's as far as I came too. This could be applied to C and E as well.

In C it'd result in the most balance maybe, since the blind auction (or, in this case: blind ordering) not only doesn't seem decisive (having the first pick might be a blessing or a curse) but also could be determined without too much controversy. You'd only have to indicate via PM all categories ordered by how badly you want the first pick. Then I'd run some behind-the-scenes mumbo jumbo and return the official order, according to which each player has exactly one 1st pick, one 2nd pick, one 3rd pick etc.

The remainder of C would also be rather straightforward. No more craziness, just announcing your pick: 1 post per DS in total X threads for X categories.



Coming back to B, I guess what we both want deep down is leading our own countries:
:Portugal: oliveira
:Belgium: davy duck
:Poland: moi etc.
Which brings us to League BBB: we assign all countries from the start, agree on some kind of equation that limits your total budget based on past results of your compatriots (http://www.cqranking.com/men/asp/gen/cqRankingCountry.asp?current=1), and proceed to another free-for-all crazy auction period with the 50% compatriot discount.

Death match between me, Joel & TER for the UK? :o

Or how about I just take the Northerners? Swifty, Cav & the Yates twins for a start?

I'll have Froome, G, Yogi and Rowe.

TER can have Fenn and JTL.

I would take Holland then...

I see also a League G: You can only have one rider per country. So you have to choose if you want Valverde, Contador or Rodriguez or an other Spanisch rider. Same for every other country. Would go for a maximum of 15 riders... And you're free to pick the countries. So there can be more than 15 countries. If you let everyone bid on the riders, I think everyone will get some strong riders as the losers from one country can win other countries becuase they din't spent their money already...

OK OK, so what I'm hearing is: the exact rules we can still discuss (whether closer to B, C, G, or a mix), but I can already start setting up a new league of national teams? :disco:

Need a strong name :agent:

The only race I can recall as being ridden by national teams is the one, the only...

I would be all in for another Cycling League or two. I have another idea based on leagues I run in Baseball and Football(USA).

Prospectus Maximus Cycling

Select 30 Riders per team
X number of Teams (Depends on interest)
Uses current spreadsheet format, scoring and race calendar.
All Riders MUST be NeoPro riders as defined in our current league.
Draft or Auction? TBD

Year 1
First 5 rounds (if Draft) or selections (by each team) are automatically signed to a 3 year contract. Riders 6 through 30 (if draft) or selections are signed to a 1 year contract.

Year 2
You have 5 riders under contract from year 1.
You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. (This allows you to keep your top riders throughout their careers.)
You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Year 3 and onward.
You have riders under contract. You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Trades allowed.

All Riders MUST be NeoPro riders as defined in our current league.

Ambitious format, but I wouldn't take part. This needs insane knowledge. Unlike American college sports, 3 guys around here follow espoirs, plus 4 more among the other 7 billion. And even if I spent months googling those no-names, in the end it would all be about the luck of the Alaphilippes vs. the Sicards anyway.

(Just one man's opinion.)

    Today at 01:20:46 AM
  • Jonathan: A team that wishes to remove a player from the 40-man roster and place him in the minor league system first needs to place him on irrevocable outright waivers. The team may not pull him back if another team claims the player. Other organizations have 48 hours to make a claim.  If the organization does not specify the type of waivers, this is the default.
