Well for one that person isn't giving up any spot, because again its from the get go. So you can let go of it now.
As people do better and better and go up in rankings, it is highly unlikely that they will do anything with waivers. If you're winning, do you really shop around the waivers that much, each and every week? Not likely. Meanwhile, those who are losing are trying to salvage their season from various things that caused their bad season. Waivers may not help them, but at least it gives them a better opportunity to be more competitive.
Because you are the one arguing for the setting. Anyone who likes your setting, to me, is a bit selfish. You want to allow people who are winning to have high picks when they don't need them. When it does nothing to help them. Rather than allow those who need the most help to have it. That is a perfect example of selfish. Idk what else to call it.
Sorry if you took offense, maybe its just me being "delusional" again right?
I would rather allow those that need it most, to have the best chance to improve their situation. It increases competition and increases interest and engagement. If you believe in trying to have the most competitive league possible, and help those that need it most, then it makes total sense to allow those who are doing the worst, to get the first pick.
I'm sorry, but do you know how the NFL does their waivers? You might want to take a look at that and come back and tell me it makes no sense. Then you can write to the league and let them know they are crazy too.
