    Ok, we've got our 7 teams and I've created the draft order using some online draft randomizer thing.

    Here is the draft order:
    1) crippledalbino
    2) Piggy
    3) mr. sin
    4) Bill Lehecka
    5) Hog's Big Ben
    6) Falldog
    7) LiddyRules

    The draft will reverse on even numbered rounds, so Liddy will have the first pick of the 2nd round, then Falldog, etc.

    I suppose the easiest way to do this is just make your picks in this thread and I'll load everyone's teams using my commissioner super powers. Let's not overcomplicate this - when it gets to you, just pick the movie you think will make the most money and we'll see how it goes.

    Don't worry about the bid part, I've figured it out so everyone will "spend" $60 in imaginary money.

    crip, you're on the clock. You can only pick movies that have not been released yet. Here's the list of eligible movies by release date:

    What's our 'clock' looking like? Do we have a time limit whereby if we don't choose in time, we get stuck with whatever Nicolas Cage is putting out these days?

    There will be a winter one, too.

    The only real "clock" is regarding This is the End. If this is still dragging out on Thursday and it hasn't been chosen we'll have to remove it from the list.

    Bill's calling his close, personal friend David Letterman. "Hey Dave, what do you think about Elysium?"

    Pick a movie, Lehecka!!

    Well shit.

    I'm leaving in about a half hour, if my turn comes up tonight and you drop me an email, I can shoot an email back with my pick(s) but I can't get on the bag because I'll be in class like a good little schoolboy.
