This is exactly why I think scrapping the whole thing shouldn't be an option. That would hurt a lot more owners. The other way only hurts those that planned ahead by grabbing a DT and CB last year. I'm one of those that planned ahead, and if for some reason flea doesn't separate those positions, my cuts will just be a little easier because I'll definitely cut the DT that I grabbed last year. I'll probably keep my CB only because he's most likely startable either way.



I guess and thrifty, the argument is the same. It can be mediocre lb's getting deemed useless or top end dt and CB...regardless, some players are getting screwed. My fault for not paying more attention, never thought it would be considered to make players essentially useless by grouping them in with a superior position.



Yeah, believe me, I wish we had a better contingency plan (that didn't hurt any owner) if flea doesn't separate the DL's and DB's. But I think the following (that I posted on page 1) is the best/easiest idea that hurts the least amount of owners:

flotsamnjetsam wrote:Assuming everyone is OK with the 1st question (changing our 2 DL/LB/DB's to 2 LB's because flea doesn't allow more than 5 flex positions), and then let's say we decide to scrap the CB/DT thing until flea separates those positions, our starting IDP requirements would be:

2 DL, DL/LB, 2 LB, LB/DB, 2DB

And if flea does separate those positions, our IDP starting requirements would be:

DL, DT, DL/LB, 2 LB, LB/DB, CB, DB

Whatever works best, though I would like to keep all my dynasty leagues on Flea.

Would also be nice to know the positions before I make my 6.05! :-? :-D

I posted again in the thread on flea, asking if they had any new word on the subject. I'll post here when/if they reply. And you don't have to worry about us moving from flea. As I posted on page 1, my 1st thought was to move the league to MFL, but that opens up a whole new can of worms...so we're definitely staying on flea. ;-D

No problem man! I didn't take it that way at all. I'm also grumpy about the situation. Let's just hope that flea makes the changes like they said they would...and then the grumpiness will go away.

One of the flea admins responded. Unfortunately, there's still not a definite answer, but here's their response:
