Hey guys, just a quick update. jayreyd joined the league page so we now have 3 open spots and 4 guys on the waiting list so we're exactly where we want to be in that respect.
A few things we need to discuss:
1 - Should we allow new managers to choose open teams on a first come first served basis so the managers who posted their interest first get first choice? For simplicity sake, I say that's what we do, but I also want input from the rest of the members. Thoughts?
2 - There was talk last year of doing something new to establish what draft picks the teams that performed the worst last year get. The reason there was discussion about it was because Sakuraba absolutely tanked it and had the worst record. If he had set his lineup at least some of the time, I believe that he would not have had the worst record. That said, his team's finish can't be overlooked. I would like to propose doing a weighted lottery for all of the teams that ended up in the bottom 6 and went into the consolation rounds last year. So far I've found that we can do this on http://www.draftpicklottery.com
. We can even pick how many lottery balls each team gets in their custom mode. Thoughts?
3 - Yahoo now has a new feature where you can make roster moves for that same day. I don't see why we wouldn't want to do this. Does anyone object? If anyone objects, we will have a vote. If no one objects, I'd like to make this change. If the yahoo fantasy nba iphone app is like their fantasy mlb app, you are only able to make roster moves via the app if you are set up where you can make same day moves.
Here's what yahoo has to say about it:
If you choose to configure your league to allow transactions to take effect on the day they are made, you will be able to add free agents to your roster for the current day so long as all transactions are completed no later than five minutes before the start of each player's game. None of the players involved in a move can have played or be within five minutes of their game's start time, or the transaction will not be allowed. So, for example, transactions for all players who play at 4:30 pm PT must be completed by 4:25 pm PT.
