I mean that with the utmost of respect, as if he wouldn't want it any other way.

In case someone doesn't get the email or swing by their Flea team)

I recall last year there was significant support to changing the starting lineups requirements, since the league was considered too vanilla. The discussion didn't get very far, since we were more focused on all the other issues addressed in the polls.

Before a poll is put up, I'd like to hear what others think about the idea. I think a simple, straight-forward move would be to make the RB2 spot a RB/WR flex.

Also, will make one last, direct, attempt to contact Bazzy. A week from now, will begin actively looking for a replacement.

Finally, not everyone has voted for all the polls- 11 members, but usually 6-8 have voted. I'd hate for a measure to pass you didn't get a chance to participate in. Please, cast your votes. If something is unclear, feel free to PM the co-commishes (C4L and me) or post in the forum.

I'm game - we just have to remember that owners drafted their teams with the current lineup requirements, so we have to ensure that any changes don't negatively impact any owners - flex positions would appear to address that concern (otherwise changes would have to be phased in over a few years).

If we are going to have so many players why not just add a rb/wr/te slot.

You guys have no idea how bad I wish I could have actually drafted this team. Laurence Maroney was a top 3 pick on it...Ronnie Brown...ugh....


I mean, I'm not saying I'd have done better, but I do know I didn't like either of them at that time :)

Seems I was too optimistic about getting started in a week or so: I haven't gotten any firm bites regarding the open spot here. Anyone got any recommendations?
