Phooey on rules ... ANARCHY !! ANARCHY !! Wait ... turns out we are fresh out of anarchies. How about extra pepperoni?

1. You get a 24 hour window to make your pick. A pick immediately triggers the next picker's 24 hours. Plan on this lasting a few weeks. We just killin time here.

2. If your 24 hours expires, next person goes on their 24 hour clock (but you can still make your pick at any time)

3. If you failed to login to MTS within the last seven days, then no 24 hour clock for you !!!

4. If your AAT is released, retires, or other tragic fate, pick another one silly, unless you are the mourning type.

5. If your AAT is traded, you have first choice of any of the new players from that transaction. Really, we promise!

6. Creativity in picks is certainly cool - but be prepared to defend, nuture, bolster, support, bleed for, tout, encourage, promote, brag on, adore, and charma-shower your AAT for the entire year. You shall be his/her mouthpiece, Guido.

7. Sharing cool photos, bios, reports, stat updates, sig lines, or Sparky-esque hype of your AAT is highly encouraged!

8. Have fun - or I shall have Joe Nathan come over to finish your scrabble game.

9. No whining about pace/speed of the draft - offenders will receive the Honey Boo Boo set (all episodes) on Blue-Ray disc.

10. Check post #1 of this thread every couple of days to see if you are up !! Those napping through their draft pick, well dude you are gonna miss out on primo pickings!

11. Have fun - oh wait I said fun twice. Well, I like fun.

12. You may PM me or others a pre-ordered proxy draft list, if you choose. If you decide to pass or trade your pick position, just let me know!

I'm number 42! I'm Jackie Robinson!


In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer, Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose - and after 7½ million years of computation - turns out to be 42!

And thank you, Charles, for promising to help me smite my enemies. Enemies, you have been served. Never underestimate what two 62-year-old men with pipes and blowtorches can do to your hillbilly asses.

How do you like them apples!
