So if we dont have to cut down to 24, how do we know whether we need to cut a player to make a waivers claim? or do we not need to yet?



This is the way we had planned to do it. Right now everyones roster is expanded because of the rookie draft. Our roster limit is 24. We agreed on a cutdown date approxiamately 1 week after the WW opens (I'll try to find the post that has all this in it). When the WW opens we said that all adds must include a drop since we'd be dropping guys anyway. Then we needed to cut down to 24. Now, you might not be able to just drop a player on the league site without adding someone. We might have to post our cuts so that dream or I can manually do it on the league site. Maybe that's why Sniper couldn't just drop a player. I'll try to find that post now. ;-D

Here it is!

Thoughts?


dream_017 wrote:I think we need to set some sort of off-season roster limit and it should take into account trades of draft picks. Not sure how many times someone is going to have 6-7 rookie picks, but the limit may be 32 players and then have a cutdown to 25.

Although as I'm writing this and thinking about it maybe just expanding the rosters to however many picks you have it OK.

Others thoughts?



dream_017 wrote:The questions we need are draft date, which I think has already been agreed..it will start soon. I'll have to check with FnJ, but it will probably start right after Memorial day.

The other question is once we expand rosters a) when will we cut them down and b) how much do we expend them(# of draft picks/set limit) The reason is some have 3 picks and some have 5, should the guys with 5 be able to make FA pick-ups based on a roster of 30 while the 3 guys only have a roster of 28.

Maybe we have 2 dates 1-2 weeks after the draft we all have to be at 29(25 man roster plus 4 draft picks) and then we cut to 25 1-2 weeks before the season starts.

Free agents would then be able to be made based on the 29 man roster.




After thinking about these 3 posts I came up with another idea.

How about we let the roster size go to whatever as far as draft picks go. After the draft we'll open up free agency. But to add a free agent you MUST drop someone (we're going to have to be dropping guys anyway at some point). This way the roster size never goes higher than your roster + your draft picks. Then we can just have 1 cutdown to 25 and we'll have that close to the season.


I really like this idea. Instead of putting up a poll I just figured I'd make a new thread and discuss it 1st.


Thoughts?

I typed cut down to 24 earlier. That's incorrect. Our roster size is 25. I verified this by looking at last years draft sheet. We had 14 rounds of O, 8 rounds of D, & 4 rounds of rooks. 26 rounds and we cut down to 25 because yahoo's roster limit was 25. ;-D


(rules & settings have 25 also!) :-S

Also, how the freak do you send trade proposals on AOL?


See above for where to find the trade proposal links. I will open up so that trades can be made via the site. After a trade has been accepted by both sides, myself and FNJ will still have to approve the trade prior to it being executed on the site. If there are any questions please let us know.

Initial Waiver Wire Process

OK, in order to do things the way we had hoped, the initial process is going to be a little different that first discribed. Currently all players not on an active roster are placed on waivers. ANY claim for a player should be sent (PM) to me. I am not putting in any claims in the initial process so there will be no conflict of interest. I will process the waivers as discribed in the rules (1 per team in reverse of final standings from last year) You can however claim and receive more than 1 player, but after the first player you will be placed to the end of the line. Please send me your requests in order of preference. After all claims are processed at noon on Wednesday, We will open up the site and players will become available on first come first serve basis. Remember youmust also drop a player in order to pick up a new player. Any questions please let either myself or FNJ know.

To see a list of current players:
On the left-hand side of the site click on Players >> Free Agents

The initial WW's are being processed as I type this. Once these are complete, within the hour, Free Agents will become first come first serve. Remember, you must drop a player in order to pick up a player.

I'm going to PM everyone right now. Remember, everyone must have their roster down to 25 by the start of Thursday's game. :-/


A lot of you know that Matt's been MIA. If we don't hear from him I'm going to set up a dummy email account and have someone run his team until we hear from him. Just someone to make the drops and set the lineup. Hopefully it won't come down to that but we do need a "plan B" just in case. :-o
