Myself and a whole bunch of other AP.net users participated in a fantasy band draft recently. This is the third draft of this kind, and we have voted amongst ourselves using a point system to narrow down the five "best" fantasy bands. The next step is a poll open to all of the users on the site to decide the winner, who gets sweet brag points. Check out the contestants and place your vote.
