Couldn't agree more. I am having the same issue in another cafe league, but we have a rule stated, so we are going to reverse these transactions. ;-D Being able to have a waiver process and divisions makes FF for me, so that is why I like AOL, I also pay for a couple other leagues, but AOL gives that same benefits as they do, but they are free...can't ask for anything more :-D

OK, so let me get this straight. We lock the waiver down until 10:00am on Wednesday, but there's no priority set? :-? Are things just not set up right, or is this how it's always been? Personally I'm a fan of a waiver that's always open. Priority's cool too, but I've always enjoyed the freedom.

I think if we don't have some sort of priorty we ought to just leave them open all the time.

Last yr. I never did figure out how waivers worked and when exactly they opened.

If we were to vote on this I'd say just leave them open all the time.

You snooze you lose!!!!!!!
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.

Still locked right now (Wed morning 6:45am EST). Under the rules it says 10:00am Wed, but I couldn't find anything about priority. Not a real biggy, I know there's a lot of info to put in when setting up the league, not to mention manually entering the lineups. I just hope it's not something that's locked now that the seasons started. Wouldn't think so, but never know. I'm just most worried about the priority set up. Anybody that has access to a computer around 10am will always beat me to the punch.

From what I could tell we are set at the default, "Automated Waiver system", that does go by a priority.

The other way we can go, which I would have more control over the way things are chosen, etc. the dropped players go on waivers themselves every time.

The part that makes me scratch my head at this point, is that the players are "locked", and it doesn't even appear that we can put players "into a wire proccess."

???

I will be getting this sorted out, just bear with me boys.

Free Agent Signing

Postby LT Blue Colt » Mon Sep 18, 2006 5:09 pm

Ok, I just want to voice my concern in order to hopefully clear things up again. I still can't request a free agent and have my priority set to pick them up on Tuesday morning. Right now all the priority gets me is players that have been dropped during the week, and left on wire for the 2 day waiting period. Now, if someone can clear me up on this, is this the way things have always been and are going to be? I'm just hoping not, because I will very rarley be able to access a computer any weekday between 6am- 4 or 5 pm. Thanks for anybody's help on this. ;-D

I have to say that I am ignorant to this. I am usually around in the am and can pick a FA if I want. But I am curious, incase I want to spend a waiver priority.
