A solution to a keeper league draft problem

Postby Txagy1 » Tue Jul 17, 2007 1:35 pm

I am trying to figure out an alternative to this potential stupid rule my friends are going to vote on. What if I recommend this:
This is a 10 person league and lets say 5 out of the 10 will keep a player. The other five teams will have a supplimental draft and draw numbers from 1 to 5. After the 5 teams that didn't keep a player make their pick, then the real draft order will be drawn...with one recommendation from me. The 5 teams that didn't keep a player get to draw first again with at worst getting the 5th pick in the real draft. This would elimate a team that didn't keep a player from getting (in theory) the 10th best player (5 keepers gone + getting the 5th pick in the supp. draft) and drawing the #10 pick (20th overall) in the real draft. To start a year with the 10th and 20th best players would be a tough road. Yeah, you'd get #21, but you build your team early and win it with nice 4-8 round picks.

You'll get more help here

If this is a keeper league, why don't you use the previous years standings to determine draft order? Use that for both the supplemental and real draft :-?

anyone else? I really need some ammo when these guys vote on a 1 person keeper this year EVEN though they didn't announce it last year.

The owner who got LT2 or SJAX probably wanted to vote for the one keeper...didn't he? To move a league to a keeper league format, you (the commish) have to announce the decision one full year out. The reason for this is that owners draft a little differently if they knew it was a keeper league. It's always someone trying to take advantage of others...and that's not a league you should want to be in.

Exactly, this is a whole different question all together. No league should change the rules during the season(and this scenerio would count as just that) unless there is 100% agreement

I totally agree. You can't have a redraft 1 year and then turn it into a keeper league the following year w/o everyone knowing that going into the draft. If you vote for a keeper league then it needs to start w/ this draft, not last years. If they don't go for it then I'd find another league.
