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 ;-7 :-b ;-) ).

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.

It's all good. I understand the reasons. It will be nice to be able to hold on to a few more "projects" for the future. If we didn't have a solid group, I'd be more worried.

You have to remember, after more than 2 decades of being a Bengals fan, I've contracted "small market AIDS" and am almost paranoid about inequality getting out of hand. I blame Mike Brown and his lone "nay" in so many 31-1 league votes.

I think the majority has already ruled, but I vote yes for the expansion.

I would hope that whatever loss in FA options is gained by trades. I would like to see more trades in this league.

Rosters will be expanded to 30 this season. There will be an extra pick this year in the draft for all. If you don't have enough picks to make the 30 man roster, free agency will be set to open immediately after the draft.
