25 people seems like too many. I agree with whoever said fewer drafters makes more sense.
Also, question on eligibility - what about acts that lost original members, yet reformed and kept playing? Like, obviously the Who still play shows, but would the Who (with Keith Moon and John Entwhistle) be eligible? Same with Queen w/ Freddie Mercury, etc.
If they carry on under the same name, even if it's a bastardization of the original act, they are considered a continuity of the original act. So The Who would be out. Queen now performs as Queen + Adam Lambert so the original Queen would be eligible.
so like....are we gonna do the no naming acts thing here?
Yeah. Especially because there's no precedent for this format there's a benefit to not naming undrafted acts.
It's not a codified rule. It's unenforced. It's just a courtesy thing as far as I'm concerned. This is a draft that benefits those who do their homework, especially since there is not previous draft to crib off of. Randomly discussing names can tip a name that somebody who hasn't researched would otherwise have never thought about.
i brought it up last night, hoping to get a bunch of situations cleared up, including Floyd. You said not to.
I mean it you had doubts you could've opened up a conversation when you were on the clock. You would've had hours to discuss and deliberate. The no naming names thing had no impact on your draft situation.
