I too would have voted for the 0 points, because I do not plan on starting an illegal lineup B-) I am fine with the latest proposal of 2 penalties ;-D

Geez how many illegal lineups are we planning to have anyway? :-b



I'm pretty sure that we won't have any. We just have to have a penalty in place in case we do have one.

And I think you misunderstood my latest suggestion Sniper. I'm suggesting that both of those penalties be in place. One for if someone starts the correct amount of players but for some reason the lineup is illegal because of the positions they started. The dropping of 2 scores would only be used if someone forgets to leave the one position blank and starts 1 too many players.

This way one players score gets dropped either way. If someone starts too many offensive players (doesn't leave the one spot blank) and we only drop 1 score, it doesn't really hurt them because they still would have a full lineup of starters without that 1 score. Using both these penalties for the 2 different situations guarantees that an illegal lineup will result in one less starter.

Maybe I'm wrong but it seemed like you voted for one or the other out of my latest suggestion and I meant for both of those options to be the penalty for the 2 different illegal lineup scenarios.

Unless anyone posts that they are really against this, this will be the penalty that we have for illegal lineups.

;-D
Yeah, anything sounds great to me at this point. I just thought it was:

Drop the score of the highest QB or RB: If someone starts the correct amount of players (leaves the one spot blank), but the lineup is illegal because of the positions they started.

or

Drop the scores of the 2 highest QB's or RB's: If someone doesn't leave that one spot blank and starts too many players.


But of course that wouldn't make much sense to do only the first if someone dosent leave one spot blank. OR... whatever...

;-7

So the options to vote on now are:

- Scoring 0 points
- Dropping the best QB/RB
- Or doing the more recent idea which is both, drop the score of the highest QB or RB, or if they don't leave a spot blank then drop the scores of the 2 highest QB's or RB's.

I vote for the third option, have both penalties.

...

Confusing but I got it, I hope.

I think a lack of AND kinda threw me so I just saw an OR and voted on one of them. :-D

At this rate, if you are minusing the two best players, why not jsut score 0?

Anyway, i'm fine with whatever. :)


Since one position shouldn't be in there, you are really only taking away one position not two.

I'm fine with 0 but I like the take away 1 QB and 1 RB rule better.

For simplicity sake I'd rather go to 0 points for illegal lineups just to have one rule, not two. I just wasn't all gung-ho about that at first because I thought someone might mistakenly submit an illegal lineup, and taking most likely their best player away would be a penalty, but also still give them a chance if it was just an honest mistake, and either way even it out so the winner won fairly.

Penalty for Illegal Lineups: Revote

Postby flotsamnjetsam » Wed Sep 06, 2006 12:56 am

OK guys, now some people have mentioned that they'd be OK with giving illegal lineups 0 points. maddog pointed out that this penalty is simple when compared to the 2 penalty option where the owner still has a chance to win.

I really don't think that we'll have a problem with this especially since we've beaten this to death. But we do need to have a penalty in place...just in case.



Here's the final revote for the penalty given to illegal lineups:


Option 1: Illegal lineups get 0 points.

Option 2: Drop the score of the highest QB or RB: If someone starts the correct amount of players (leaves the one spot blank), but the lineup is illegal because of the positions they started.

AND

Drop the scores of the 2 highest QB's or RB's: If someone doesn't leave that one spot blank and starts too many players.







Please vote for the penalty that you prefer and please post which option you voted for.

Thanks!

Yea, we might as well just simplify it by saying it's an automatic 0 for that week. It would definitely make sure people are paying attention to their lineups.

While I don't like the idea of someone submitting an illegal lineup, I have a bigger problem with another owner getting an automatic win. :-t

Option 2. ;-D
