UNO !

Uno is one of the most interesting, fun Drafts out there and my personal favorite League of all time.  Essentially we all take turns picking a franchise and a player from that franchise to start each new Round.  Everyone else "follows suit" picking a player from that frnachise unless a REVERSE CARD or a WILD CARD is used (everyone gets one of each to play during the Draft).  We'll go slow off the clock for the first couple of Rounds - once everyone gets the hang of it we can have more than one Round going at once ahead of schedule.  I'll keep close tabs on the Draft & can sitemail the League when teams change if someone plays a Reverse Card.  Round 25 is a freebie Round to pick anyone in the database that hasn't already been picked.

$120 million Salary Cap.
NO AAA, NO DH, NO Waiver Wire.
TRADES ALLOWED- once the season starts.
NO CLONES League Wide.
(only 1 Babe Ruth, ect.)
Stadium--must be a stadium used by one of your players.

*You may use any season of your selected player as long as he wore the uniform of the team selected in that round.  (WIS database season)
Sitemailing the Next 3 is helpful as teams can change mid-Round. I should be able to keep close tabs on things during the draft & Keep the Draft Board updated frequesntly & sitemail the League as well.

How it works:
* Once we get 24 owners, I’ll have a respected owner not in the League do a Random.org. & post it in this thread to set the ROUND 1 Draft Order.
* Each owner moves up one slot each new Round and whoever drafted first the Round previously goes to the end of the line in the next Round.
* Each New Round- whoever picks 1st selects a team from all of the teams in the WIS Database and a Player from that team. That team becomes the team everyone will choose from for that Round UNLESS you play a RESERVE or WILD. Everyone will have (1) Reverse Card & (1) Wild Card over the course of the Draft. (explained below)

REVERSE CARDS- (1 per player) When played, You can SWITCH the current team that’s up for that Round to a different team. Everyone after you in that Round will pick a player from the team you Reversed it to.  REVERSE CARDS MUST be played prior to our durring your timeslot.  **(Note – previous versions only allowed 1 Reverse Card to be played per Round, but a couple of guys never got a chance to use theirs. So we will allow as many guys to use their 1 Reverse Card in a given Round as want to- but once you use it, it’s gone…)

WILD CARDS-   (1 per player) Everyone will have one Wild Card as well. Wild Cards allow you to pick ANY player that has not already picked.

Round 25- Is a FREE Round for guys to pick anyone not already picked. The Round 25 Draft order will be in Reverse Order of who used their Wild Card first. First to use their Wild Card it goes Last in Round 25, ect…

Draft Procedures Example-
Round 1 begins, say Steve has the first overall pick and chooses the Yankees & Babe Ruth. Everyone following Steve in Round 1 picks someone from the Yankees. We get down to the 8th pick in Round 1 and TheTaint REVERSES teams to the Atlanta Braves and picks Greg Maddux. Now everyone after the 8th pick picks a player from the Atlanta Braves. Josh at Pick 21 doesn’t want a Brave left on the board and uses a Wild Card and picks Ty Cobb. Everyone left in Round 1 still picks an Atlanta Brave unless they choose to use their (1) Wild Card.

* Once a player has been selected, he cannot be selected from another team. That player MUST be used in the team unifrom he was drafted for. For Example--let's say Rickey Henderson was chosen in the New York Yankee Round. He must be used as a Yankee and cannot be chosen later in the A's round.
Any Questions- just Post 'em up or sitemail me !
