There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

Seems like this would be a perfect theme for a trading/negotiating and above all DRAFTING game! With variable player abilities the winner is the one who drafts the player who ends up being the rookie of the year. There designers, I just gave you a game. Now go make it.

That would be any betting game ever that is based on some predefined but variable stats.

Because thats the best simulation of that I can think off, have you tried sports videogames that involves drafting, to they work?...

The video game angle actually works really well. You can draft and then simulate seasons. It's a fun way to create a dynasty.

I do think this theme on a boardgame might be fun, but you would need a good system to simulate the season, or it would really feel just tacked on to a betting game like you describe.
