Where Legends Are Born

Recommended Posts

For those that may be checking this, please either check your e-mail or the league page. I put up a comment on there and in the e-mail to get some feedback on potentially changing our current waiver structure. Currently, we have more of a normal structure, but a suggestion mentioned to me in the offseason was to potentially change it to the reverse order of the standings each week. The reasoning is that it would allow the bottom teams in the league to get better quickly by allowing them a better chance at free agents each week. Of course, those that have worked to get a better waiver priority may not like this potential change.

This is simply a commenting period right now, but if it seems like there's support for a change, I may decide to put it up for a formal, league-wide vote. If you have an opinion of any sort on the matter, please feel free to express it either here, on yahoo, or in an e-mail to me.

Yessss 100% support that even though I have the #1 waiver. I haven't used my waiver spot in 2 years because I was 2nd and 1st waiting for the right time to capitalize, knowing I would never have it that high again (or at least for years and years).

With the feedback I have seen, I feel like there's enough to create a poll for everybody to vote on. I have set up this poll on the league page, and I would like everybody to vote on it as soon as they can. Your options are to keep the system the way it is now or change the system to one that resets every week based on the reverse order of the standings. As per usual, I will not be voting unless absolutely necessary. 7 votes for either option will be the majority. Even if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, please vote for one of the options because we may need it. Please let me know what you guys think!

As most of you either knew before or know now, FFCollusion elected not to return this year. The search for a new owner did not last long, as the #1 man on my list elected to take over his team. Please welcome justgunz3 to the league!

Don't blow it justgunz3! :P In a single year I got you CJ Anderson, Jeremy Hill and Isaiah Crowell!

And a warning to you both, Ray Rice was removed from the player pool, whom I held onto last year for a potential return to the NFL in 2015 (looking at you Dallas!) and while the new owner might not care one iota, he should at least be aware of the situation, and potentially something you might need to take a look at sportsguy as commissioner to avoid future issues as well. For example Josh Gordon was also removed from the Yahoo player pool this year, and I doubt the owner even knows yet and I can't imagine giving up on a guy that talented quite yet.

*If you're interested in a starting point for the rules feel free to PM me as I just got done putting them together for 1 of the leagues I commish.

Good luck to justgunz and best wishes for the league!

Any situations involving players not in the player pool were communicated to each owner after rosters were entered. But I appreciate the friendly reminder nonetheless.

Yep. I own Gordon and I am fully aware. I'll keep a bench spot open to retain him and commish did communicate with me letting me know this was ok.

I'm good with that. I think its Canada day but I'll be able to make my first pick that day regardless.

Should be fine for me. I will be at work but I have access to a computer all day so it won't be an issue.

Just a heads up to everybody, I'm not planning on implementing a hard time limit for the draft at this point. I know we have a lot of great owners, so I'm hoping that things will progress smoothly and naturally. If things slow down, then I'll implement a 24-hour rule, but I have no intentions on doing so in the early goings.

Also, I'm looking to somehow get into the mid-late portion of the 1st round. If there's a match somewhere, let me know.

Just a reminder to everybody that our draft gets kicked off tomorrow! Rolling Twenties (aka Drake) will be OTC to make his picks whenever he is ready tomorrow. Please remember to either add your players to your roster or post your drops and I can make the moves myself. Good luck everybody!

Good thing is we have three guys making 7 of the first 10 picks, so as long as they are checking, the first round should go pretty fast lol.
