So had a bunch of friends over, and got drunk...while playing Loaded Questions Adult Version...for those of you who haven't played that yet...I suggest it. Get a bunch of your closest friends, proceed to get drunk, and play this game. I promise you won't regret it.

As I type this...yes I am intoxicated.


I love Pabst Blue riBBON.

REF: Rule changes for next year.

Instinctive wrote:An actual cut-down date, before the draft.


I like the way it is. NFL teams don't have to make cuts until after the draft. In fact, they don't have to do it until right before the regular season.

One big benefit of keeping it this way is that we are not forced to draft for specific positions.

For example: If I have 2 WRs that are borderline cuts, and I decide to cut them before the draft, than that changes my draft strategy significantly and I may be forced to grab a WR over a much better player at another position. If I had held on to the WRs before the draft, I would have the flexibility to make a better decision.

I do think cuts should be made expeditiously following the draft. In our case, I think 9 JUN is quite acceptable. No issues there.

Instinctive wrote:We shouldn't just randomly be at however many players you want until you're ready to cut people

Agree with this. I think we all go into the draft with the same number of players - in our case that would be 32. And if we have 5 rounds next year, then we all come out of the draft with 37 players.

Give people a week to cut their rosters back to 32, open the WW, and smoke a cigar. ;-D

But, due to trades an such some people will have more than 5 picks and will then have more than 37 players.

And, to be fair, having us all at 32 pre-draft is its own kind of cut-down, isn't it?

I think we should expand to 37 at the end of the season. That's step 1.

Step 2: either we cut down to 32 post-draft, or we don't. I'm ok either way, as long as...

Step 3: We open waivers on a certain date. Even if we're still at 37 (I'm ok with that) we shouldn't have to wait forever on waivers. It eliminates the advantage of being an active offseason owner.

Step 4: Cut down for the season. Either we already did this in step 2, or now we cut down to 32 after having 37 all offseason.
