End draft picks!
FRANCHISE OWNER of the triumphant Akademiks outfit, Wayne Jones, would like to see the end of the draft picks in the LIME Pelican Football Challenge after three years.
In looking to future tournaments, Jones said it was important for team chemistry that more than the allocated seven seeded players remained together as a unit.
“I feel that after about three times, you shouldn’t draft [any more] players any more. . . . After you get your team gelling together and do all that internal work, I don’t feel the next year somebody else should come and just pull somebody out of your structure after you done build it,” he remarked.
“It is like you are building a house and somebody taking something from the foundation. You should bring your team and it should be up to a player if he wants to leave or if he wants to be bought.”
