Well if that's the case, Jesus Christ is the Michael Jordan of this draft.

I'd actually prefer today's most power people.

ya know...

Putin, Bush, the Pope, Obama, Osama, Cheaney, Britney Spears... etc.

More of a WWIII type draft.

yea... who are the people in China, India, and Pakistan that got power? that could be interesting to learn...

But, it's up to Force of Nature...

1776... recent history... Everyone Agree?

That's my suggestion.

Otherwise I might have to draft Jesus Christ.

Besides, I kinda don't give a $hit about ancient history.

Well, I still want to put somewhat old-time leaders in this draft, the thing is Jesus wasn't a political power, so he'd be undraftable. I would only consider political powers to be those who ruled (or helped rule) a country politically (Bush, Putin, etc.) or were ever involved in politics (like political rebels and revolutionaries). But not guys who weren't involved in politics (or guys who had a minimal role), like Newton, Da Vinci, Einstein, Jordan, etc.

This is based on the peoples' political power and political impact. That's what I'd like to have.

Jesus was the great prophet, but he had some Political influence because during that time because Israel was under the regime of the Roman Empire, and they are afraid that someone will revolt againts them because Jesus Christ was a direct descendant of King David.

He's the heir to the throne because the Israelite still respect David because he's the one, who defeated the Philistines, and reunited the Kingdom after King Saul and his son Jonathan was killed in a battle.

The Jewish people wanted someone, who will help them in restoring the Kingdom in Israel, and one of the reason that Jesus Christ was crucified is because he's a powerful man.

Alright, as for the league itself, I may make it something simple like just vote on the best team after the drafting, OR ... if someone helps me out, I could have matchups every few days, and just do a regular type league with playoffs after the regular season.
