I think last year someone said they dropped someone of value (Shockey I think) because they wanted to help a player they liked drop in the FA draft. Maybe it's the same idea. Although probably like Louis Murphy would have been just as effective and not as costly. :-S %-6 X-I X-I

I think it was Instinctive who did that drop tho, not Joey.

Oh, and Bungle, I'm just trying to stir up some trouble. :-] I wasn't really thinking that. :-o


This, lets talk...who doesn't want it and why? lets discuss.

I'll see if I can find the time to do a more thorough search but go back to May of 2010 in this thread and I think August of 2009 in the 2009 thread and we had talks about it. Off the top of my head it was Red, instinctive, joey and maybe another 1 or 2 that did not want it.

I say we put it up to an offical vote.

It appears that we can make league changes based on a simply majority.

I don't like 7-5 votes. Just means you may piss off half the league. The original rules and regs was not mine or really ours. There are lots of things that should be changed but wiht having to jump in literally last minute last year to save the league and then with all the Cafe business this year I just haven't had time.

I have no issues with doing polls for any topic but it needs to be a minimum of 8-4, preferably 9-3 to pass.

I've asked this a couple of times, anyone want to commish this league? Or at the least, co-commish?

I can say I would be weary about blind bidding but not because I don't like it. More because I have never done it and don't really understand it. I kind of get the point that I have to put money out to get a player but I only have so much. I fear I'm going to go after someone than have a key player go down not leaving me enough money to go after the replacement.


I can help co-commish if everyone is ok with a rookie to the league doing it. My compensation would be Forsett :-D

I did it last year for the first time despite some reservations and I was pleasantly surprised by it! ;-D

C4L, those are the same reservstions people have about using their "Waiver priority". Youll be okay, if the guy is worth it than he is worth it. Also, you can bid 0 dollars. Lets put it up to a vote, and also lets vote on how many votes it should take to change something.

Just playing devil's advocate, isn't a simple majority sufficient - if 7-5 isn't enough to pass, then ya piss off 7 and make 5 happy and the minority gets to rule and the majority are unhappy???
