Sure, if one of the rookies wants to team up, send me a PM!

No jokes though. The ATD is serious business. Like Burkie, I will provide the truculence that you sallies lack.

I'll miss you having a team. You're funny, one of my favs, and imo one of the most popular personalities in the ATD.

Ok, ok, I'm officially up for Co-GM duties for whoever wants. I just might go missing for days at a time.

As a former co-GM with arrbez, I can vouch for him being pretty much the best possible partner for a first timer.

You're too young to remember this, but after I lived in Paris, I lived in London in the mid 70s and the Blues used to be underdogs plus I lived in the West End. Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United were the traditional rich team favorites. Go ahead and jump on the red teams' bandwagon. I'm an independent thinker, myself. I'll have more news on this subject for you in one week. Also, I honestly think the Wings are going out in the first round this year. Kronwall is no Lidstrom or even Keith.

I'm a spurs fan mate! No way I'll ever cheer for anyone in a red shirt! Red Wings might even miss playoffs this years... so can Hawks...

I don't think we ever had a team with three co-GM, but I don't see why this would be a problem, if everyone can work together.

I don't have a problem with it. I don't care if our team is O6, post O6, or a mix as long as the players are good.

as a regular on the history board, I would really love to have you in the draft, but see post 217 - looks like we are full. Maybe you could team up with a co-GM?

Oh bollocks, I was busy yesterday and missed the sign-up.....I suppose I could team up with someone if they were inclined. I'm going to be out all day and night tonight but I'll check e-mail in the early evening.

What are the rules/parameters?

At the very least your name could be put on the WAITING LIST. If a team needs a co-GM or an opening comes up, you'd be ready.

Check these out:


A good way to START to decide the value of players to determine who to draft is to look at the last draft:

ATD 2012 Draft Thread:
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1134463

This is all one grand thought experiment, "what if" reflections, trying to imagine what would happen, and basing our judgements on real facts, comparing players to others of their own era to determine their value, then comparing them to players of other eras to realize their all-time merit. It's an ongoing reflective process full of interesting discussions and analyses.

Here is a ROSTER thread (we put the players we draft here as we go through the draft): http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1082791

Here is a BIO thread (here is where we put bios we construct, building on past bios by others): http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1083917

Here is a Line-up Assassination thread (here is where we review individual teams prior to each of us voting anonymously by PM ballot on the ranking of teams for each division: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=899921

Here is a playoff match-up thread: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1157173

These should give you a sense of the level of participation! Draft on time and after the draft vote on ranking teams within divisions and in playoff series, add to discussions and conversations all over the place, like in line-up assassinations, playoff match-up threads, etcetera. Basically, plan to be around at least fifteen minutes a day every day at minimum. Disappearing for three or four days is not conducive to the all-time draft!

Why are we letting one team have three GM's? What are they Burke, Nonis, and the entire MLSE board?

It's hard to see what the advantage to it is, though. Why the hell not?

I just hope they won't need to reach each others for every single pick.
