2014 Kanick Reader Mock.
I thought it was be fun to try the same idea but with some of the readers/friends of this here year-old site. The concept is simple: we get a different person to post his/her pick for a team assigned to them and they’re restricted to the pool of players left to them.
I’m excited because I am not blowing smoke up your you-know-whats when I say we have really insightful and smart participants in the forum/community here.
I opened up the invites to commenters, Cheddars, and general friends3 of the site, had a bunch of people sign on, then did random assignments. Here’s the lineup:
The assignments are mostly random. E.g., I asked JPFTribe to lead off because he’s on vacation next week. Jeff Rich is out in Arizona and all over the Cardinals; Rod-O is near NYC and tuned into the Giants.. so in some cases we’ll have a local correspondent for a team. But the rest were put into a list randomizer and I promise the batting order of
- ClevTA/Jags, and;
- Zara on the Browns
was truly random and I was pretty happy that it shook out like that.
Anyway, it looks like fun and JPF’s Texans’ post is going up in a couple minutes and, in my opinion, a stellar kickoff.
- I know DBN didn’t invent and many sites do it, but hey, there’s was the first one I’d seen. [back]
- I had the Cowboys and took Jonathan Cooper. I stand by the pick. [back]
- I basically looked at the past couple weeks’ commenters, the Cheddar mailing list, and anyone who has registered here. I know I missed some people (NFB) and apologize. Didn’t mean to be exclusive in any way, but also didn’t want to be begging for contributors publicly. [back]
