A few of us were batting around some ideas for organizing the inevitable many threads about specific college players who are eligible for the annual National Football League Player Selection Process (also known as "the draft").

I'm going to post a Public Opinion Input Device (also known as a "poll"), and please select one or more options that relate to your opinion (also known as "your dumbass opinion" if I don't agree with it).

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance in making chiefsplanet a better place.

I say we create an entire new site for it. We'd call it whoarethekansascitychiefsgonnadraftin2006?.com

I like it...nice....this would prevent threads, mocks, and profiles from falling off the oblivion that is the front page.

I'd like something I can read while I'm taking a greazy dump.

I'd like to add to choices #3 and #4...

All Draft threads could be "tagged" and left for discussion on the main page(whether they are discussed, fall off the front page, or whatever) then, after 2 or 3 days...the mods move them to the "Draft Forum" or Archive so the same topic is not rehashed 15,000 times every week.

Could we get a sticky for this thread?

I love the ideas guys, but as a mod, some of these things might be hard to enforce...

Just keep that in mind.

Maybe just making a separate "King Carl's Draft Corner" forum would be all the mods would do. Posting titles should be left up to the posters...

Regardless, you'll have people that post draft topics on the main page.

I liked the unmoderated option and the request to have threads list position, name, etc...

It would be nice to see some mocks, speculation on what team needs are around the league and how they would affect who falls to us, but that doesn't fit in with the thread title requirements. I do however like the idea of keeping all discussion about single players to single threads, rather than having to sift through all the date rape and closet shitting police reports to determine who would fit on the Chiefs.

I think mocks should go in this forum too...maybe a subfolder of the forum or just in there with everything else.

Yep. Didn't we have some poll based planet mocks last year as well? Those were kinda cool too.

Yeah...I think that was in the game forum or something.

I like it on the front page, fast and furious. That is one characteristic, that has endeared me to this place.

If we add a new subforum, we need to dump about 2-3 others in the process.

Based on this poll, I'm gonna create a subforum for draft threads. It will be up until just after the draft.

I like the subform option with names and position as a thread title. This forum should also include mocks and what not.

Are you geetign sick?


I went with option 5. While I love the draft, I don't know what players will go when. I think it would be the best way to go IMO.

Thanks for all your hard work on this, and you get some rest ok?

The reason I'd leave it up shortly after is so that everybody can post scouting reports on the losers we draft. :D

I think a seperate sub-forum, with open-discussion AND pre-designated threads by position, and as we get into April....by player maybe.

That's what we're gonna do. The "open discussion" won by simple majority, but the other options were popular too.

IMO it should have taken a 51% majority vote to move the draft talk to it's own forum. I mean it's not fuggin politics or girly pics it's fuggin football. I guess discussing football on the front page of a football forum is taboo in 2006. :harumph:
