So officially we can pick up players as FA's when, a few days after the Monday nite game?

Well, after kickoff on Thursday night, I am going to unlock free agents manually, but they will remain locked on technicality through this week's games as per the league rules. After Monday nights games, the waiver system will be initiated, and then I suppose free agents will be freely available for pickup after waivers are processed next Wednesday morning.

2009 Draft Order - Your Immediate Vote/Post is Required

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:06 pm

Please post in this thread how you wish to vote on this matter:
VOTE:
A. According to our pre-established rules as seen on this Cafe Draftroom - Draft order based on end of season rankings
OR
B. According to a Commish's after the season ended change which based the first 6 draft picks on a consolation round of playoffs between the bottom 6 teams

Please note in your vote post why you voted as you did and why you think it is the best/fairest way to decide this issue.

For Reference, here is how the bottom six will pick depending on our league vote:
A. ORIGINAL RULES
Ice Bowlers
Lightspeed Champions
Delaware Destroyers
Mobile Knockers
Canucks Team
Barbarians

B. Commish's After Season Changed Rules Draft Order:
Delaware Destroyers
Ice Bowlers
Barbarians
Canucks
Mobile Knockers
Lightspeed Champions

Also, the way that Fleaflicker seeds the playoffs instantly resulted in draft order improvements for 2 teams(Canucks and Barbarians) just by virtue of them getting a bye in the consolation playoffs.

We will abide by whichever side gets 7 votes, with the previously agreed upon rules(Choice A.) winning a 6-6 tie.

Current Vote Status:
A. Keep Original Draft Order Rules
1. Maves - Ice Bowlers
2. Wrpd136 - The Fuzz
3. Jake
4. JoeySeven
5. iamgregg

B. Change retroactively to new Draft Order Rules:
1.

I vote for Choice A. - Abide by the ORIGINAL rules in place throughout the season.

Why?
- Because it is Bush League to change a rule retroactively. It is especially BS to do so without a league vote before implementing a retroacive season change to pre-set league rules. I'd like to go back and retroactively change some rules which would have increased my wins allowing me to be in the Playoffs for the Championship if such changes were not BS.
- Because the 2 highest ranked teams get automatic increases in their draft order due to Fleaflickers bye week in the Consolation Playoffs. If anything, the 2 lowest ranked teams need to get those byes if we implement the Consolation Round playoff for next year.
- I am not alone in my thinking here as NO ONE who posted in my threads placed on three different fantasy football sites thought that what the Commish did was right. Some thought we needed to boot this Commish. Some said they wouldn't want to be in such a league. Others said I should make some outrageous trades and then become absent. etc...

I have no intent to do any of their suggestions but will abide with whatever we decide as a league by our votes here.

I think we should go with A for this season, because that is the way it was predetermined.

If we want to make a change for the 2010 draft, then we should vote on that following this poll.

Even though I won the playoffs, I have no problem with Choice A. This year the top 5 picks won't have much diffence anyway. Jake

Agreed.

Choice A

There are highlighted problems with implementing B at a later date though. Posted all my thoughts a while ago in League Discussion.
