is there any way we can vote for this blind bid auction for waivers again this year with the $100 budget? It's really much better then the standard rolling waivers IMO, I don't know why some people don't like change but this feature means you can target as many players as you like all year, with the latter most people are afraid to use any waivers and sitting on it all year for the 1 add they like.

My oldest dynasty league (7 years) implemented the blind bidding 2 years ago. It has worked out well and I prefer it. I have no issues with putting it up for a vote but again, a large majority would need to vote for the change. Not a 7-5 vote

I'd vote for it. What good argument can someone make not to use it?

I make the argument that I like waivers and typically it helps the league's parity, even just a bit.

They are both waivers but it does bidding does allow a more even playing field for all owners. Regular waivers should enable the weaker teams to catch up faster in theory.
