2012 poll- Roster size- 30 or 34?

Postby Kareighuis » Thu Apr 26, 2012 12:45 am

Previous poll #1 and previous poll #2 didn't yield conclusive results. Should we expand the active rosters to 34, or keep it at 30? (note: this doesn't apply to any potential IR spots)

I don't care much either way...I haven't voted but will go with majority on this one. If I HAD TO ABSOLUTELY VOTE, I'd probably go with 34. But for now, majority.


edit:

instead of being complicated, I just voted for 34.

I'm always a bigger is NO better guy in dynasty leagues. 30 players is already large and 34 players with IR spots would be downright silly. At that point, the only way to pick up a potential deep sleeper would be to follow when players like RB Chad Spann get released from practice squads...do we really want to go there?!? :-t

If we do go with 34, which I'm in favor of, I think we need to let the IR poll remain open to give guys a chance to change their vote - I don't think there's a big need to have IR spots with a 34 man roster.

Obviously you point out Spann because you know he just got released by the Steelers. Do you need to come to terms with the fact that you've already gone there? :-D

I know about Spann ONLY because I'm a Steelers fan and I receive a daily digest e-mail of news fom all Pittsburgh teams from http://www.pittsburghsportsreport.com. I also post on Steelers message boards and occasionally read official tweets from the Steelers organization. I can't remember which source it was, but buried somewhere deep in one of those sources was the news that Spann was relased. I don't want to have to do that for 31 other NFL teams as well, which would be ridiculous. But with roster sizes so large, that's practically the only way anyone is going to find a sleeper pick.

I realize that the majority of the league is for the measure and that this is a lost cause. At the risk of being obnoxious just for the sake of it, consider that if bigger is better, then why stop at 34? Why not 45? Or how about 53 like the NFL active game day rosters? }:-)
