Kordell Stewart?!

For some reason, he was added to my roster at 11:20 am eastern today. Makes no sense to me. If you see guys on your roster that shouldn't be, or guys missing that should, lemme know.

Added the most recent wave of draftees. The following teams need to make room for their selections-
Blurst of Times- Danny Coale
Barry's Boyz- Tony Moeaki

In the last wave of additions, it seems this trade got invalidated. The right team made the relevant picks, so I moved the players also.

Someone recently wondered to me whether it was necessary to have our draft so early. I thought I'd explain what another league does and see if there's interest in doing the same here.

At the beginning of each month, they start a round. For instance, round 1 could start at the beginning of May, round 2 at the beginning of June, and so on. In this scheme, August would be for round 4.

My friend who's in this league has how this has made the draft different in several ways-

1- Rather than a frantic rush to get the draft done, there's a clear plan.

2- Rather than randomly guessing who'll be valuable, moving the later rounds after OTAs gives franchises a chance to evaluate reports from the teams.

3- It's driven trade activity, as teams have a week or 3 to see who didn't get drafted the previous round. The early picks in each round are hotly pursued for the offseason gems.

There've been others, but those are the main things I remember. I can think of reasons our group wouldn't want not to do it, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

I have absolutely no desire to split up a draft.
