Thread: Draft lottery poll

  1. #1


    Draft lottery poll

    Here is the info for the draft lottery:
    - It would go into effect in the 2068 season.
    - The 16 teams who do not make the playoffs are eligible for the lottery.
    - Picks 1-5 are assigned by the lottery.
    - Picks 6-16 are assigned by default CSFBL order (those who did not win lottery).
    - Picks 17-20 are to the teams that lost in the Divisional Championship Series’, in reverse order of wins.
    - Picks 21-22 are to the teams that lost in the League Championship Series’, in reverse order of wins.
    - Pick 23 is to the team that lost in the World Series.
    - Pick 24 is to the team that won the World Series.

    Lottery weights:
    The probabilities are listed below:
    1 = 33.6%
    2 = 16.8%
    3 = 12.6%
    4 = 9.5%
    5 = 7.1%
    6 = 5.3%
    7 = 4.0%
    8 = 3.0%
    9 = 2.2%
    10 = 1.7%
    11 = 1.3%
    12 = 1.0%
    13 = 0.7%
    14 = 0.5%
    15 = 0.4%
    16 = 0.3%

    - If two teams tie inside the Draft Lottery, the total probability for their positions will be equally divided between the two. For example, say two teams tie for the worst record in the league, there is a 50.4% chance between the first two spots. That will be split equally among the two so that each have a 25.2% chance at the first pick. The same system applies for any number of teams tied. If it cannot be split perfectly evenly, the extra 0.1%(s) will be awarded by who would draft earlier in the default CSFBL draft list. For example, if the 3rd and 4th worst teams tie in record, their percentages add up to 20.1%. The 3rd worst team (according to default CSFBL list) would get 10.1% and the 4th worst would get 10.0%.

    - No team may have more than 3 top-5 picks in a 5 year period. If a team were to be selected for a fourth top-5 pick in a 5 year period, they would pick 6th.

    - The draft lottery is run on the same calendar day as the game simulates April 1st of the season. We will use Eastern time to determine when the game simulates. The midnight simulation begins a calendar day.

    - At the end of the day that the draft is to be run, the designated league commissioner will log on to www.lotteryusa.com and check the results of the chosen lotteries (I chose this site because it aggregates all the lotteries to make it easier. It also has the last 10 drawings for each lottery). The lottery that will be used is that specific state’s Mid-day Pick 3 lottery drawing. (This is mostly the same as the order used in the L.O.L. Draft spreadsheet. Except Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont draw the same numbers. Missouri added as the first pick. North Carolina as the final pick.)
    1st - Missouri
    2nd - New York
    3rd - Ohio
    4th - New Jersey
    5th - South Carolina
    6th - Maine
    7th - Indiana
    8th - Kentucky
    9th - Tennessee
    10th - Florida
    11th - Pennsylvania
    12th - Connecticut
    13th - Delaware
    14th - Virgina
    15th - North Carolina

    - Once it is in place, we will look at it 10 seasons later to see if adjustments need to be made.

    - We will use a spreadsheet very similar to the LOL spreadsheet to calculate who the winners of the draft are.

    voted yes. don't think we need it, but it would be fun.

    think we should put lottery reconsideration in the same time as cap reconsideration.
