I think you made the right choice picking there and Stafford was a logical choice don't know why you hate that...You certainly could use some youth at the QB position, and I really don't think he'll bust having Calvin to throw to his whole career, it may of been a risky pick if you had only one but you had three so it made sense.

Stop being pragmatic. You should totally be mocking him right now. He took a QB. In the first round.

I have done it once before... 2004 1.12 and 2.01. Favre as by QB in a dynasty took Ben and Eli. Kind of worked out.

oh... and shut up Thrifty! ;-) :-b

Will do eventually. There appears to be a glitch of some sorts going on with the add feature. A couple other guys are having issues with it as well.

I also am highly in favor of doing a Waiver add even after the FA draft before it's opened up to free agents in pre-season, I have a nice amount of roster spots to fill that won't be full after both of our drafts so I don't mind putting my claims in early in the season so I can get all the players I want to fill my roster.



As far as the draft, I felt like that Andre Brown pick was a reach but I like him so much I think he'll end up being worth that spot, but that was good news for me as I was targeting him with 1.09 or if I moved to 2.01 so I can't be mad. :-D I'm doing another dynasty draft where he lasted until the first few picks of the 2nd so I'm scrambling to make a move up for him, he just needs to stay healthy and he'll be a beast at the next level.


And well, I originally thought I needed to move up to the 3rd or so spot back in Feb to take McCoy so I'm happy to have landed him where I stayed, especially knowing Westy needs surgery, I just wasn't a Shonn Greene fan though I would of taken him due to value if i had to.

Stallworth and Hilliard have been addded back on. Still can't do it from my home computer but Flea should be able to figure that out for me eventually.

Rosters have been temporarily bumped to 30 so when trading, no cuts should need to be done.

DO NOT ADD FREE AGENTS VIA THE WAIVER WIRE PLEASE.

OK, so here is my suggestion based on everyone's input.

1) We rasie the roster limit to 28 this year, an increase of 3 spots.
2) In 2010 we add another 2 spots bringing the rosters up to 30.
3) We carry on with the NFL style 4 round PURE rookie draft. This will be how it will continue every year.
4) One July 1st we start a 2 round snake style FA draft. This also will be an annual event.
5) All rookie picks are tradeable as we are handling it now. Up to 1 year out.
6) In the spirit of free enterprise the FA picks are tradeable as well but only within the current year. I have no automated way of keeping track of them so want to keep it within the same year. They can be traded for current year rookie picks or current rostered players or for other current FA picks ONLY.
7) For this year only, the FA draft will be continued until all rosters are full at 28. This allows anyone who made drops to make room (when it was needed) to fill their roster. When you are full, you will simply post that you pass on all remaining FA picks. If your rookie picks fill you to the maximum of 28, you will either have to pass immediately on FA picks or post a cut when you post your FA pick.
8) Regular waiver wire transactions will start week 1.


#7 Slightly confusing but it does make sense.

Yeah or nay??? If nay... tell us why.

I like those resolutions, 2 round FA draft every off-season sounds good also...#7 is a great idea, so I'm on board with what you've came up with.
