I'm defintely participating. Also I assume I'll be assisting whoever runs the draft with thread cleanup/all that kind of random upkeep stuff that needs done. Can't be a candidate to totally run it though because I'm taking twice the amount of classes I should this quarter.

Team name: Hamilton Mustangs.

Biographical history of the Hamilton Mustangs: A 17-year-old farmhand from rural New York state, Dean Youngblood (Rob Lowe) has dreams of playing in the National Hockey League. First he must prove to himself, his family and his teammates that he can survive in the harsh, brutal world of Canadian Junior Hockey with a rag tag team of roughnecks, the Hamilton Mustangs. Possessing blazing speed and a quick stick, he has a violent run-in with a brutish player, Carl Racki (George J. Finn), during try-outs. Youngblood quickly learns that flashiness and pure athletic ability will not be enough to be successful in this league.

After his mentor and friend on the team, Derek Sutton (Patrick Swayze) is brutally injured by the thuggish Racki (now with the rival Thunder Bay Bombers), Youngblood returns home to the farm out of fear, sadness, and disgust. After a pep-talk by his older brother, Kelly (Jim Youngs) about the nature of never quitting and always standing up for yourself, Youngblood is inspired to learn how to fight and survive on the ice and adapt the killer instinct that has been stopping him from being successful. Youngblood returns to the team a new man, ready to confront Racki in the final game of the Memorial Cup playoffs between his team and the Thunder Bay Bombers.

The game ends with a stunning game-winning penalty shot by Youngblood; yet it is far from over as Youngblood demands to his coach, Murray Chadwick (Ed Lauter) to be left in the game as time expires to confront Racki. "Let's go, Pretty Boy!" says Racki as he and Youngblood engage in a violent fight to the finish with his teammates and crowd including Youngblood's father Blane (Eric Nesterenko) and girlfriend Jessie (Cynthia Gibb) (Coach Chadwick's daughter), cheering him on. The fight starts with both Youngblood and Racki using their sticks as swords until Youngblood knocks Racki's stick out of his hands. Youngblood and Racki then fight bare-handed. Youngblood emerges victorious, landing several blows to the face and body of his nemesis Racki, and is carried off the ice on the shoulders of his teammates in celebration.

Reason for using the Hamilton Mustangs: As a film student, I normally try to base team names on past hockey films. And Youngblood is the most hilariously ridiculous hockey movie ever created. And because for some reason that escapes my grasp, I could watch anything Rob Lowe is in.

We should make a rulebook thread where we can discuss the possible protocol of the draft.

Not to be bearer of bad news, but by the rules we started to talk about, there's already one participant that do not fit the criteria.

Hobnobs, who do not meet the post count. But again, we havn't clearly decided what would be the rules for this year ATD, which is why I feel this thread was started far too soon ... Will we ever learn?

Hedberg 12-31-2011 01:14 PM

vancityluongo and I are in again, but we haven't yet decided upon a team name.

Yup, pretty sure we decided on a 500 post minimum for solo GMs after the fiascos of last time.

Edit: Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we decided on the requirements to allow someone to GM his own team before starting the signup thread.

BenchBrawl 12-31-2011 01:34 PM

hobnob might be treated differently though since he already participated in a draft.
