Re: Unfair and Unrealistic Having No INj Reserve

1) The first 2 weeks I won without injuries. Lately I have been fortunate especially with matchups. The 2 things are not related anyway.
2)Paraphrasing a lot of what I read. "Its your problem and (fortunately) not mine so too bad."
3) Yes the rules are set. So fine. One question. Is there any point where this becomes inequitable. If 2 more go down and I only have half a roster and its 7 vs. 14 does it still make sense. How bout 6 vs. 14. Five. Unlike any other real sports team there is NO short tem solution.

4) What if 3/4 way through the season an owner has 4 players out for the year and 5 more week to week like mine. This is considered normal? They shouldn't be able to even field a team?

Even the most basic beginner leagues in Fant. BB seem to have some sort of IR. But I guess we won't this year. I guess I'll just be silent since this seems to be considered just whining.

I voted (I'm pretty sure) to have the 2 spots still have an IL but just be posted in the smack talk section, so I would be up for changing the rule, but I think everyone is right in that we should wait until next season, play this one out and see where everyone stands when it ends.

Well, looks like you got Jeff Green back tonight. Iggy looks to play tomorrow night, and David Lee will be back in about a week.

Sooooooooo...

Should I feel sorry for you now, or three weeks from now when your kicking Barrec's ass? O:-) ;-7 }:-)

I also voted for the 2 il spots during 'teh vote', it seems we will revisit it next off-season.

Hey hey hey! Just because it is likely to happen doesn't mean we gotta be planning for it ;o)

Like many others, I feel your plight as it could happen to any of us, but I feel making an addendum at this point wouldn't be within the spirit of the rules. Definitely something that we should revisit during the offseason.
