Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages!!. On behalf of Gonzo, the proprietor of this here site, and Anthony and Eric, his trusty virtual sidekicks, the Daily Norseman would like to announce that we are rolling out our first ever, 27th annual Live Mock Draft!! Details after the jump!! More exclamation points too!!!!!!!!!!
Here's how this will work. Groundrules, if you will:
1. Anyone with a DN account in good standing can participate.
2. If you would like to act as an NFL GM, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will randomly assign guys to teams, if you have a request I will take that into consideration. Might not be a bad idea to put in two or three team requests. That said, who you request might not necessarily be the team you get. So if you're Mr. Pink, you're Mr Pink. No bitching. Oh, and Gonzo will play Rick Spielman. Sorry, when you're the site proprietor you can be the Vikes Draftapaloozafeststock GM. First 32 guys to respond get a team.
2. Draft time is this Saturday, March 6th, starting at 1 pm CST. Either Eric, Anthony, or Gonzo will be the draft moderator and will update the picks as the draft moves along.
3. It will be one round, and you will have 10 minutes to make your selection. And there will be none of this.
4. No trades, especially if we have guys playing multiple GM roles. It's only one round, so trades wouldn't be very realistic anyways.
5. Do a little homework if you're assigned a team you're not familiar with. It only takes a few minutes to find out what a teams needs are, and who the top guys at those positions are, or who the top 32 players available are if you're a best player available strategist.
6. Once I have all the teams assigned, I will post a reply in this thread and send each participant an email telling them what team(s) they get.
That's all I have for now. If you have any suggestions, gripes, or complaints, let me know in this thread.
