Anyone ever do a re-draft league?

Interesting from the standpoint that the most exciting part of the year is the draft. Around midseason, some people lose interest because the "exciting" part of the fantasy season is well and gone. All the busts and sleepers have occurred, and bragging rights for good or bad drafts have been confirmed. Why not have ANOTHER draft to build up all the hype again?

Frankly, because it makes no sense. I'm with everyone else...good intentions, but stupid nonetheless. :-t

I'd try it out.

Really, this won't punish good drafters. If anything, it will help them out. They get two chances to outwit their opponents.

If it's a free league and you like hangin' out with these guys throwin' back some cold ones, might as well play along. No way would I put any money into a league like that though.

A $500 gamble on something you have zero control over? That's just plain crazy. The two money leagues I'm in cost $40 and $20 and I think the $40 league is really pricey. That's the most I'll spend in a league, believe me.

$50 bucks is about my personal ceiling for a FF buy-in. With what they're proposing you'd be better off just talikng the $500, walking up to a roulette table, and betting black. At least then you'd have an almost 50/50 shot of doubling your money.
