2014 Kanick Reader Mock.

accountantcostume1lgThe guys at Dawgs by Nature1 had a fun feature last year when they invited a reader to be GM for a day and write a post on whom they would take and why.2

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

  • Kolonich/Rams;
  • 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.


  1. I know DBN didn’t invent and many sites do it, but hey, there’s was the first one I’d seen. [back]
  2. I had the Cowboys and took Jonathan Cooper.  I stand by the pick. [back]
  3. 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]
