I've had this pesky idea that I can't seem to shake. The thought occurred that it might be fun to hold a four team draft using only players who've played for the Oilers/Titans franchise. Obviously this would require four individuals with a pretty solid knowledge base of the old Oilers teams. I was born in 65 so I can't sit here and claim personal knowledge of the 1960 and 61 Oilers AFL Championship teams, but through the years I've read enough to not be in the dark (I know who Jim Norton and Charlie Hennigan are). I realize many of you have little or no interest in the Oilers and their old rosters. That's cool... I don't entirely understand it, but let's not make this thread a place for that discussion. You can sit this one out... or perhaps just watch it unfold and become a little more familiar with some past greats of the franchise. I thought it'd be a normal snaking draft that is common for such things. I will be acting as owner of one team, I will pick first overall, as well be arbitrator of any problems (I can't imagine there being many). I will rule with an iron fist and crush all who oppose me. hehehe =] Each owner will fill out a roster of 22 starters. Once a position group is filled on your team you can no longer draft anymore players at that position. The rosters will be as follows... QB RB (should we go with 2?) WR x 03 TE OL x 05 (try as best as possible to draft olineman by position, but I think we can allow some leeway) DL x 04 (again, try as best as possible to draft DT's and DE's but their is obviously some grey area) LB's x 03 (should we go with 4?) CB x 02 S x 02 K x ... Ummm.... no. When picking players, you will get them when they were at their best for this franchise. I also realize that players of eras are hard to compare (olinemen on the sixties were puny relative to the players of today). For this sale of this draft, let's say the players be judged relative to their era. So if you pick an all-AFL player from 1965 he will be considered to be of that caliber when competing against current Titans greats. I thought about including head coach, but yeah, the pool of talent is pretty shallow. If you've any ideas to improve things (roster make-up, selection process... whatev), or if you can foresee any snafus going forward, please chime in now (please). As stated above, for expedience sake I will be the sole arbitrator and rule on such things (I do want this to be a fair handed, fun thing do so I will try to rule fairly on everything... I just don't want to waste time on debate or votes over silly BS). And in reality this isn't a competition... it just a little bit if offseason fun. If you think you'd make a good candidate to GM one of these four teams, please chime and state your knowledge level. Something like; "I'd like to join... I have a pretty good knowledge of eighties Oilers and everything going forward til now.... and have some some knowledge of 60's and 70's teams". I'm not sure how many actually have much knowledge on this, so even if your knowledge of the old Oilers is a lil sketchy, if you have a real interest in doing this, and are committed to doing the best job possible, please chime in, you never know. Here is linkage to an excellent data base of all-time Oilers/Titans history, rosters, stats etc. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/oti/ I realize that the pool for people who have the interest and knowledge might be small, but if we can find four people who do have some awareness and interest those old Oilers teams... it might in fact be a pretty fun offseason exercise.
