Another one! Hopefully these rules make sense...

It's actually fairly straight forward. You start from whichever letter in the alphabet you want but there's no going back. So if you start with Steven Gerrard , you can only go from G-Z after that, and it has to be in alphabetical order. You can go from G to M if you wish, but you can't then go back to I, for example. You can go from G to another G if it follows the alphabet. For example Gerrard to Guardiola is perfectly fine because 'Gu' comes after 'Ge'.

You can only use the names they went by during their career for guys like Pele, Ronaldo etc. Any other pick is chosen by surname.

It is not restricted to current players.

Easy enough? :#

    Time Limit

    This will follow an order, like the previous drafts. Therefore everyone has a time limit of 4 hours to make their selection. If you miss this window, the next person up is free to make their pick. If you know you will be unavailable at the time of your pick and don't want to miss your window, PM someone with your player and they will post it for you.

    If you do miss your window, you have to wait until we get back to the bottom of the list, or the top depending on how it's running, before you can catch up.

    Due to the nature of this draft, you might not always have to wait for the person before you to go before you can pick. If the person directly before you is limited to M-Z, whereas you wish to take a player whose surnames begins with F, then you can make your pick before them because it does not impede on their selection.

    The window ends at midnight and re-opens at 8am. Therefore if the person before you picks at 10pm, you have until 10am to make your pick.

    If you miss your 4 hour window more than once, you are out of the draft.

    So are we still following the one before or do you get to pick your own starting point?

    You pick your own starting point. If you want, you can start at L or P....whatever.
