History Lesson: The Draft League

I used to fuck with this league so hard, this is where people were supposed to make and break it out east for GT. Sort of the PG/GZ type before those even existed. Highly overlooked in the grand scheme of things.

Here are some of the best battles, including some site favorite battlers:

Renegade vs Rosenberg Raw


Real good battle that got bumped to the Grind Time channel from the Draft League, Rose kills it as usual and Renegade is no slouch.

Flashmatics vs Swaggaman


Flashmatics actually got on GT Northwest with Illmac hosting iirc, Swaggaman was my favorite draft league battler besides Yesh.

@ErikForeman vs Kev Money


Grudge match, and as far as I know the first time we saw Foreman battling on cam....

G-KiDd vs Yesh


Yesh was from Jersey and was super talented, him and his brother Ashwin used to do 2v2's. G-KiDd was in a crew as well, Ice Grillz iirc...with Red Freck, Flashmatics and more

Skitzo vs @Ray Stizzy


Stacks, as we know was seriously on the come up and had unforunate circumstances hit him...He's back now and killing it again. Skitzo is so nutty and entertaining...just watch, he looks like a miner in this battle.

Enjoy and any old heads, post more from the draft league....it really was such a good setting.

Great thread. Will rep @ledge once it allows me to.

I remember thinking Kev Money was crazy against Foreman when I first watched that battle. I'll have to peep again soon and see how that battle's aged.


This was a pretty revolutionary battle from the Draft. Daze, Stacks, and Renegade had a crazy first round.

Great thread @ledge, definitely going to go back and peep a few of these. I saw someone post something from TDL on Facebook sometime in the last day or 2, wouldn't be surprised if this thread was what inspired that FB post.

I think I only went to 1 of these events, but I used to go to events pretty often in general around this time- there was a lot of fire ass events in NY then, though. I slowed down after Summer Madness 2, but If Pen kept putting together events, I know I would have kept on going. URL has always put on good battles, but the fact that they've been doing it for close to a decade yet still can't figure out how to get 6 battles done in 7 hours is insane IMO. I'd rather just watch URL on YouTube at this point. The MASSacre cards haave been the best events of the last few years in the northeast, so IMO we need some more events out here. @Poison Pen whats good?

pretty sure Beastmode just dropped a kev money battle out of left field, I don't think he's been on cam since the draft

Don't worry man, I'm putting in a bid for the Basic Training channel and got a hack on deck to give your battle 500,000 views in 15 minutes.
