I thought the reason why this group has stuck together was the blood oath that MSB & Cappy made us sign before we signed up for the league.
I kinda see your point, but I don't think expanding to 30 will affect the parity. I'm not saying that it can't, but I think there are some other reasons that have given us "the exceptional parity". I think all 10 owners did very good in the initial draft. That was crazy for the 1st few years...all 10 teams within a few games in the standings at the end of the year (unlike last year
). I think another reason is that all of us are pretty damn good at fantasy football (except Cappy
The 2 reasons why I voted "yes" for expansion:
1. In dynasty leagues, I like larger rosters so owners can afford to stash a few "sleepers and/or rookies" at the end of the bench. With a 25 man roster, I think that's hard at times.
2. I'm in 2 leagues where the waiver wire is just crap. One is 12 team with 35 man rosters (420 players), and the other is 10 team with 40 man rosters (400 players). After checking out those numbers, I don't think expanding to 30 (300 players) is going to make our waiver wire dry up.
