Re: ***min offers rule***

These last few posts have really gotten out of hand. :-t

Are you guys really getting that riled about all of this? 8-o If so, set your lineups for a few days and keep away from this thread.

Cool off and then come back without ever letting emotions get the best of anyone again. It's a fantasy league for Pete's Sake! We're all just here to have fun amongst fantastic competition. Let's just get through all the matters that NEED to be discussed and reach some nice compromise.

Yeah, wow, let's clam down here. Kal has done a mint of work to get this thing off and running, and a mint of work organizing on the fly. It would be a real shame to let a rules disagreement drive a wedge between any of the active GMs and the commish. I might disgree with him about min contracts, but I'm completely behind him as commish. The only thing I'm going to throw my weight behind here is trying to find a good rules solution.

Kal, I get why you want the roll calls, and I'd agree that the more active the GMs are, the better. However, it's also the case that a lot of guys, even if they might be active in terms of trades and roster management, have zero interest is rules design. When it comes to the sort of thing we're discussing it's always going be with a core group of managers. I think what we need to do is get some good options set down, with tight and stress-tested rules, and then just guys vote. I think for the bulk of managers it's maybe too much to ask that they sort through pages and pages of posts to figure out who they agree with.

Ardilla-
The fact that Kal was against FCFS, and the fact that I understand why he's against it, even though I don't agree with his solution, is why I started discussing points based tie breakers in the first place. I might not agree with all of his positions, but the league is his baby. I do like FCFS better than cap based tie breakers, but I'm not pushing for FCFS to be solution. I don't think a points based system needs to be complicated or tedious either. Ideally I think it would set a score for every team going into the offseason - one that everyone could see - and change as FA's are signed. I'm confident something like that could avoid seeming arbitrary and serve as a nice middle ground.

Could we get a thread going with one post per GM so they can just edit their own IL? If I were Kal I'm not sure I'd want to editing all the drop adds unless absolutely necessary.

So long as the managers pay attention to who's on who;s IL, they should be able to mange this without the commish having to actively do anything. Save perhaps a once weekly or biweekly update post at most.

Some of us having checking in on the Yahoo site everyday and as Red said watching many games on our League Pass. Plus watching every Timberwolves game the whole way through resembles a full time job where Wednesday is hump day. Also I have to admit when I see threads that long already that I haven't read yet I kind of figure I'll wait until the disputes calm down and then see if I have anything to contribute.

But I will check in here once a day now. But I'll take my punishment. 1 more hour a day in the next week sitting in darkness in the daytime. Oh wait that will happen anyways here in Alaska.............

If it were to happen, I agree with those who said we should wait a year before allowing it. More FAs will open up. I also agree with the higher protection #s and a 2-team limit per year for expansion.


I'm in agreement with this for right now.


I'm also in agreement with this for right now.

Alaska eh? What happened to "guys who live in snow and darkness unite"? You could have shown a little solidarity by letting me win at least one real cat this week. :-D

I realize Kal did a lot of work but I am doing this for fun. The commish threatening to kick us out halfway through the first week because we aren't participating, then responding rudely when I try to participate creates a situation where I am having more fun insulting him than I am tolerating him. I don't think anything was way out of line, no one is cursing or making death threats yet.

Fenris - For a points system for tie-breakers, what do you have in mind that would cause it to change throughout the off-season to avoid certain teams always beating others? One idea I had was to include # of players on your roster as a negative (so having less players would cause you to win). This would stop being useful when teams reached max roster size though and I am sure someone can see other problems with it.

That is a good idea. I'd update my own.
