PostPosted: 11/14/05 10:31 pm    ::: Pick the Expansion Draft Choices Reply Reply with quote

Ok, guys, show me who knows their stuff, I've put up a selection form, put in your picks for which player Chicago will select from each team, winner is the one that has the most players that are picked by Chicago in the draft, in case of a tie, the one with the earliest entry will be the winner.

It's nothing fancy, only one selection per user, change it as many times as you like, every time you hit the submit button, it will overwrite the old picks with your new picks, contest will be open until Midnight Eastern time Tuesday night.

link to the selection box:
http://boards.rebkell.net/challenge/draft.php

I've added a totals board, that shows the totals of the current draft picks, real time.

I guess my entry went in. The screen didn't change or say "entry accepted" or anything.

Hmmm... looking through that list makes me think: maybe instead of being the earliest entry, the tie-breaker should be the entry with the fewest spelling errors Wink

Jessica Moore was my stealth pick, since Keegan didn't even mention her in his protected list blog entry. Now everyone will pick her. Sad

I thought about her but I didn't pick her because I wasn't sure how that worked because didn't L.A. release her before the post season? I wasn't sure what she would be considered so I didn't list her.

LA didn't release her. She just wasn't on the playoff roster.

It went in, it just came back with your picks, it took them, I saw them.


I think I clicked mine twice (expecting an "entry accepted" message)

Oops!

It didn't hurt anything, it just submitted the same lineup twice, sorry it's not fancy, it's just a plain form, and it submits your lineup when you click on it. If you go back to the page, the form will be filled out with your picks

Yeah, that'll probably tip the scales, we'll have a JMo avalanche.... Chicago will probably go for her now, she probably wasn't even on their radar, I'm sure she's the talk of the office at Sky HQ ... Laughing

Well, I don't think they're going to go Italian and Dixon is a UFA, so that doesn't leave much.

Don't worry, pilight, I thought of her before I read through the thread. I don't think the Sky are going to go the Sol route and fleece teams out of international players.

Creativity runs high when trying to write a foreign player's name (mainly). Thank God the majority wrote Iziane Castro Marques. Shame on the rest for not even going to dot com to find out how to spell it correctly. Or do you think I know how to spell Cathrine Kraayeveld without any help???

Who missed the memo that La'Keshia Frett's a UFA? Or that Chelle Thompson is retiring (and I think also a UFA?)

It also looks like someone thinks Shereka is honoring another former Boilermaker by changing her last name to White.

I thought Charlotte might tempt Chicago by not protecting Sheri Sam, which would free up $70k+ this year and next year. But Charlotte protected Sam and exposed Jia Perkins. Ras is an unrestricted free agent.

can I go back and change my Charlotte pick now?

I will go on record as saying some of my picks would have been none; I will be surprised if Chicago takes more than 9 players.

Shoot, I didn't know that Raz was UFA... I guess I'd go with Jia, although I am shocked she's available. She was starting towards the end of the season. I guess they expect Feaster to be ready to go.

I'm also tempted to take Teanna Miller, but I think Jia is the right pick. Scoring.

I still don't see what would be the rationale for Chicago not to take all of the picks they can. Not any harm in picking them up and then making cuts after you see what else you can get.

I know Sacramento wants to trade picks for agreements not to take anyone, but who could Chicago get at 13 or 14 of a crappy draft that is better than Hainie or Newton? Or at 12 that is better than Hoffman?

They picked Iziane Castro Marques? Question I think it's unlikely that she'll be available... Dot com aside, they should have went to the Seattle Times article which supports my belief.. Idea And who picked Margo Dydek? Razz

Thibault cannot give up two draft picks for a player he would not protect, especially given Taj's age and CT's lack of depth in the post.

Razz Well if you want her off your team, just try trading her for a 2nd round pick... Anybody would take that deal Idea


Kristin Haynie Question I hope not...

Read it again; I didn't say I wanted her off our team. I just said I put down a name no one else would that had a slight chance of going. That's all. I didn't say Haynie by the way.

I think Chicago will definitely take Haynie if she's available over Powell anyday to run their point.

Because your still not allowed more than 15 players in camp at any one time. And if you go for draft picks and try to pick up a few free agents, you'd exceed the limit pretty quickly.

Are you sure, DTS? You will have players arriving late...and you can have over 15 on the roster before training camp.

Isn't it 15 day one of camp. Remember this is still a brother or sisterhood. The names are not being publicly released. So, if you don't think so and so is going to make your team or is where you want to go, I don't see a person being taken just to take a person.

Are you sure, DTS? You will have players arriving late...and you can have over 15 on the roster before training camp.


Players can be waived as early as right now, if a team chooses to. This is Chicago's only chance at freebie players. If nothing else, cut a few given their oversees performance if you want to, or if you are able to add FAs, which isn't for certain.

If they don't sign any FAs (unlikely, but possible) three draft picks and 13 expansion draft players give you 16 on your roster for camp. Only one cut needs to be made. But if you take only 9 now, can't get any FAs you want, then you are undermanned and in big toruble.

Matty don't forget undrafted rookie free agents. I expect Chicago would bring in a bunch, just like CT did two years ago when they were starting the rebuild.

But can Chicago match CT's ability to bring in SWGs to camp?

*goes to email Matty for words to "Bring It On" cheers*

I had chosen Jia Perkins prior to knowing these details mainly because she showed she's a pure point in a market that is thin in the position. I would like the Libs to give her a shot if she's available somehow in the future. Also, for that reason, I think they protected Loree and left Kraay unprotected.

they do have Cowens as a judge, so...

I remember really liking Katie MacFarlane from Army's game. I wonder if she is in the war now? Crying or Very sad

Have to disagree, BCBG. IMHO, Jia Perkins is not a "pure" point by any stretch of the imagination. She played the 2 and the 3 at Texas Tech. She is a two-guard who can handle the ball. 1.1 assists to 1.07 turnovers a game is not stellar, either.

She's more of a point guard than I've seen on many teams, including mine...I saw things about her that I liked and I really don't think anyone in Charlotte was stellar stat-wise by any stretch of the imagination. Since I never saw her in college, I am assessing her pro game and I think she's suited to play the 1.

Perkins can work as a ballhandler, if you are going to run, but VJ is more capable of handling the point than Perkins. Jia, IMHO, is like Becky...someone who is better suited to the two.

I think I remember training camps opening with 18 players...then whittling down.

I would have picked her, but I don't think she'll be available for the Sky.
