We've had our 2012 draft, but have already decided that 2013 (if there's no season) will be a weighted one.
Pretty simple for us b/c this is the 4th year.
We'd just assign points per finish each year (12 for last, 1 for winner).....put the total numbers into a hat/random lottery generator and have at it.
Ie - a last, 2nd last, 2nd last finish would net you 34 total tickets to the lottery.
First, second, first would net you 4 tickets.
Everyone would have a chance to land the top pick, but obviously the shoddier performers over the past three years would have the highest likelihood.
You can factor in a winning season if you did a weighted pool......you could factor in how many first overall picks someone has had...but we felt a simple weighting was best for us.
We also considered just adding the total numbers per finish and NOT making it random. Ie- if you had the highest total (ie-the worst performer over three years) you'd get top pick.
Best performer over the three years would get the last pick.
But in the end, felt having SOME sort of chance for everyone to get the top pick was worth it.
