Essentially, each team would have 12 guys per week to do what they want with. That answers a lot of the questions about carrying injuries and rooks, but leaves the hard-core daily subs guys the option to roll with daily matchups the way they want. I think it sounds like a decent compromise.
Along with yourself, Barrec, hi chi and Scully all expressed support for the idea, which I proposed on page 3 of the "weekly lineups - INACTIVE LIST" thread . Some of the other guys like theRobsays and Red chimed in earlier with a discussion on games limits and reducing active roster slots, but that was before the 9-3-3 proposal so it's a bit unclear where they stand. Noone had expressed opposition, not until you did your 180 anyhow
I'm not putting this to a vote, you can't push every change you don't like to a vote while letting others slide through. Right now, with the current level of activity, the lack of a commissioner, and a very tight timeframe unless we either come up with a better proposal us active guys can all agree on, perhaps using game limits like DV has suggested, then the 9-3-3 proposal has as much support as any other we are debating.[/quote]
I'm trying to be agreeable. I don't like the idea, but if that's what people want to do then I'm all for making work as well as possible - it possible for me to work with ideas that I don't really like.
The same goes for weekly lineups and a host of other ideas that have either been suggested or actually implemented in this league. Like it or not the mechanism we used for inactive slots last year was hella clumsy and I really don't like it much. If people want to roll with the basic idea again then I think we should probably come up with something a little more elegant.
You can blow me about the vote thing too.
System changes get voted on regardless of whether or not there's a single commish, a panel of commishes, or a bunch of garden gnomes making the decision. You make it sound like I'm using the vote like a weapon against you personally but I'm not. I expect anything major to get voted on by whatever active managers we have at the time. That's the way Kal was doing things and I don't expect that to change. We not get very many votes on stuff right now, but it's still going to get done, for anyone's proposed suggestions. Call it majority opinion if that makes you feel better. Maybe we don't need an 'official' vote, but majority preference is what's going to determine how the league shapes up.
