Last year, the Yahoo site "randomly" assigned draft order for the open draft. The problem with such "random" assignment was that I set the draft order once as co-commissioner (thought BBF had deferred such duties to me solely), and then BBF re-set the draft order.

When I set the "random" draft order, I received the No. 1 pick. When BBF re-set the "random" draft order, he received the No. 1 pick (and Adam Wainwright).

So I don't trust the "random" order from Yahoo, since I would almost certainly get the No. 1 pick. Look, I would be thrilled to have the No. 1 pick, but believe that is not fair.

So here is my proposal. All teams are designated (so to speak) in order on the league web site. The Flying Beagles are #1, #21 is #2 (stay with me here), Pittsburgh Pride is #3, and so on.

So I ask AzBucco Fan, a very long-time board member, and a man whose credibility is beyond repute, to put numbers 1-12 in a hat, and pull them out to set the draft order. He will then post the results on this site - not even knowing who is what number.

That will be the draft order.

What do the other managers think?

That works with me..

A good site for doing stuff like this is random.org.. I've used it with other fantasy leagues before, you can have it generate you a random sequence of numbers to follow the above approach or use it to randomize a list you give it (team names).
