  1. THE DRAFT

PAY BEFORE YOU DRAFT($100).  The 2001 draft will be held at the house of Dave Bunch.  September 6 starting at 2:00pm.  That will be only be 3 days before the beginning of the season.

  1. Every team will have a salary cap of $150.  This will allow an average of $10 per roster spot to be spent by the owners.

  2. The draft order will be (1)Shadowy Government Figures, (2)Gummi Growlers, (3)R&R Express, (4)Pepe’s Pirates, (5)Hinkley Buzzards, (6)The Cyclops, (7)Rolling Thunder, (8)The Lambs, (9)Jeff’s Juggernauts, (10)The Slicksters, (11)Bobby’s Law Dawgs, (12)Steel Curtain.  This will be the order that the owners introduce a player for auction.  This right to introduce a player also allows the owner that introduces the player to only have to match a bid in order to retain the rights to the player.

  3. Minimum bid for a player will be $1 with incremental increases of $1 during the auction bidding.  This means no “cents” being bided.

  4. A team owner can introduce any player that you want to in order to fill the roster.  A player man not be introduced in a position that has already been filled on your roster.  There will be a $2 fine if this occurs and a new player will have to be introduced by the same owner.

  5. A team owner may not bid/purchase on a position that has already been filled on their roster.

  6. All 15 roster spots must be filled during the draft.  A hard salary cap of $150 will exist for all owners.  You  may not bust the salary cap in any manner.  In order to ensure that enough salary cap money is left to fill your roster spots, $1 must be retained for every open salary spot that a team has left to fill.

For example:  A team owner must have $1 for every roster spot that has not been filled in reserve under the salary cap of $150.

Example#1 :  There are 15 roster spots.  Therefore the max you could bid on your first player would be $136 in order to keep the $14 in reserve.

Example#2 :  You have won 3 players for $47, $25, $17 respectively.  That equals $89 for 3 roster spots.  You are now bidding on a fourth roster spot.  The max that you could bid would be $61(Salary cap room) - $11(11 roster spots to fill if you win the fourth guy) = $50.

This would ensure that you have enough money to fill your roster toward the end of the draft with $1 players if it came to that.
