Pushing this to next season is puzzling to me. Would you have tried less last season or will you try less this coming season to secure a better draft spot? I know every year in every league I play I play to win, money, no money, big money it doesn't matter I hate losing.

Ok here is what we will do. We will implement this rule for next season. We will go to the reverse order with the playoffsif it does in fact pass. I feel of you make the Superbowl and playoffs you should have a good enough team to withstand a low draft pick.

I don't think it's a matter of trying less or more (I didn't even think about it that way), I just agree with jayday's point. The vote will obviously pass for this year because jayday & dream are the only 2 that might vote against it because they'd get better picks the old way. The vote doesn't affect the 4 that missed the playoffs, and the other 4 get better draft picks if we change for this year. The vote doesn't affect me...I'm just thinking about what would be fair for everyone...and obviously I'm fine with whatever we decide! ;-D

Yeah, I did reconsider this all, we are now voting on this to begin next season. I am going through the draft and editing everything.

I totally agree with what you're saying. I don't think the order would've changed either. I try my best to win every game, often unsuccessfully. :-b

Flots pointed out that I have the most skin in the game if the system were to be changed, and I won't deny it. However, a good question to ask is: What's to stop us from voting to change the rookie draft next year around this time (when the draft order would be known) from an NFL-style draft to an auction draft? The guy with the number one pick is going to be pissed. I just think any change needs to be made a year into the future. Before the die is already cast so to speak.

Oh auctions I like it, j/k!!!!

As far as making new rules it really depends on what they are. There are some things in my opinion that can never be changed. I would love to go to PPR but that is one thing I dont think we could ever do.

Just to make everyone aware of this! Next year the offseason rosters will again expand from 30 to 34 and cuts will have to be made before the season starts. This way we do not have to cut players to make room for draft choices.

I love playing Fantasy Football and this league is my favorite.....it's in my DNA to try hard each and every game regardless of where I end up in the draft. I'm competitive and I hate to lose.
