ROSTER EXPANSION

Postby bungle613 » Wed Jun 23, 2010 8:20 pm

This has always been on the table but I could not find anything official beyond expanding to 30 man rosters for 2010?

Is everyone still interested in increasing both the roster size and rookie/fa draft for 2011. If so, start throwing out numbers and if not, please voice that opinion as well.

I think that since we have started the rookie draft we should wait to make it effective next year. We can vote now on it which I would vote 30 and possibly add a 5th round to the draft.

The reason I don't like the idea of changing things now is because it changes the strategy a bit. If someone only has 1 roster spot left but 3 picks left he has to make some tough decisions. If you open up the rosters he doesn't.

I think he said "for 2011" so that's not going to be an issue.


I'm typically all for increasing roster sizes, but we're pretty darn huge already for being an Offense only league. I would rather eliminate kicker in favor of a flex spot, or add another flex spot to your starting lineup (R/W/T) to gain more roster space.

That looks confusing. Here's what I really mean: If we increase roster sizes any more than we have, we should add another spot to the starting lineup as one of the new roster spaces. We have gigantic benches as it is.

2010 is staying with 4 round draft and a 30 man roster. This is for 2011 and beyond.

Got it. Didn't see the 2011.

I like the rosters at 30. 35 is overkill. Got to have some free agents.

I would love to see us expand the roster to 35, but also think we need one or two flex spots added.

As we do kind of have a boring starting lineup configuration.

If this is something a vast majority is interested in I would suggest an expansion to 32 and an addition of 1 flex in 2011 and expansion to 35 and an addition of the 2nd flex spot in 2012.

I don't think an expansion will carry but let's talk about it while everyone is checking in. I have to agree the starting req's are pretty vanilla.

I would want at least a 2 year gap between any changes in starting lineup requirements.

Even something as varied as a flex?

Yeah, I think you need time to prepare your roster for something like that even if it is a flex. I realize 9 or 10 of the owners here are working at warp speed, but I have kind of built my strategy around the lineup as it is. There are trades I might have taken or offered or not offered just since like November.

I would probably vote no on adding more starters in general.
