I was argueing for it this season, so let me say I'm right there with you too on making it more focused on helping the losing teams. I think we are far too focused on anti-tanking for a league this competitive.

Also, something I failed to mention in my last post, If a GM tanks by not setting their lineup properly then punish them in the lottery, bump them up a spot or two higher than they would have finished had they set their roster properly. So instead of improving their chances they actually hurt them.

Out of interest, what are some of the more horrible contracts guys have inherited?

Butler, 13M for 3 yrs
Calderon, avg of 17M over 3 yrs
A.Randolph, 11M for 3 yrs
Yao, 10M for 2 years

there maybe others, but I can't remember who the other newbies are. Also worth noting that SoTex started with 3 of those.

Well, perhaps we could just allow ST to waive two guys in the offseason and clear any salary owed from those two contracts in future seasons. Along with changes to the lottery odds I think that would definitely bring hope to any new GM trying to turn their teams fortunes around, not just now but in the future. Meanwhile GM's of more competitive teams would still benefit from the advantage of winning tiebreakers in free agency.

I understand Kal's reluctance to reward non-playoff teams with high draft picks, but I think we are leaning too far in the opposite direction at the moment.

Is there anyway that I can update my salary page on the google doc? I signed into to google but it will not allow me to make any changes...it would be very helpful if managers themselves could update their salaries on that spreadsheet....but i understand if thats not how google docs work

That main google doc can only be updated by me (because I created it) and Kal (because I allowed him to). The idea of that page was to have one central place to have everything so easier searching, but I think allowing everyone to edit it might not be the best choice. If Kal disagrees then sure.

What I can do is set it so that everyone can edit their own page, but not the rest of them. If you want to do that then send me your email in a PM. That should probably make it easier.

For the 7 day contracts, is the manager on the hook for .1875 once the player is waived?

Edit: They shouldn't because it costs you .25M towards season salary on a player you get to use for a week.
