Looks like somebody sneakily inserted some commentary in what SHOULD be the studiously neutral results posting

Sounds like a great synopsis to me...the poster seems to be merely heading off angry posters, who are huge Rush fans...

I just want to express my dismay to those who rejected my bid to enter your drafts. After running a superior nation states country and having a firm grasp on the topics involved in the drafts, I find it an outrage and unneccasarily discrimatory to deny my involvement. Furthermore, may god have mercy on your souls.

Those numbskulls who left Clapton to the third round should be disqualified. Moreover, any discerning student of popular music cannot but be appalled by the absence of Bobby Darin, the coolest cat who ever lived. (And, YES, I'd take Darin before Sinatra.)(btw: ROGER DALTREY? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FRIKKIN' MIND??!!?

And Sydney: I'm not sure how to break this to you gently, but you'd have been better served selecting John, rather than Victor, Wooten.

I think "passing stranger" meant "Morgan" Wooten (although he could also have gone with "John Wooden.")

The Wizard of Westwood was a musician? Man, what couldn’t he do (with the help of oodles of money)

There are tons of people off this list, i mean there were 6 positions and 5 people drafting, hence 30 people. Obviously great amazing musicians/artists were left out, such as Pete Townshend, John Entwhistle, Bruce Springsteen, Freddy Mercury, Neil Peart, Ray Charles, Robbie Robertson, Santana, George Harrison, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Roger Waters, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, Al Green

We tried our best and commentary will be forthcoming.
