IR Vote

Postby RedHopeful » Fri Aug 24, 2012 6:42 pm

Due to a recent discussion in the discussion thread, we're going to have a vote on whether we should include an IR spot. If one is added, we'll discuss and figure out the necessary parameters. Also, if applicable, state the number of IR slots you'd like to see implemented.

I think one IR slot is fine unless we're also taking away a bench slot. Honestly, adding an IR slot and removing a bench slot seems like a zero sum game to me. Adding two IR slots and removing one bench slot would work though.

Makes sense to me, and I would tend to agree.

I voted to leave as is. From my experience, something happens with these voluntary IR things, though with a solid group of managers like here, it's highly unlikely that something bad will happen. I just like to keep things as simple as possible, and sorting through IR rules and checking on if things are done right complicates things.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

The other option is to add one more bench slot, but I'm mostly against draining the FA pool instead of specifically addressing injuries, even if that does involve a small amount of book keeping.

As a new member, I'm fine with whatever the group decides. I don't really have a strong feeling on this issue.

Usually I am a fan of stupid, but after last season, I wouldn't mind a little complexity. In wanting to compete, I looked to move all my injury riddled top tier guys at times (and ended up trading away Lopez/Randolph/Gay) so that I could accumulate enough counting stats per week. It almost worked but I don't want to go through that again. In H2H keeper leagues, IR spots just make sense; otherwise, a few key injuries can break your playoff aspirations.
