Here were some rule changes suggested last year and the results of their voting:

 

1. There will be a one day waiting period for waivers (Change from 2 days) (Y/N) Y

 

2. There will be no waiting period after trade is finalized (Change from 1 day (i think)) (Y/N) Y

 

3. Choose one of these 3 drafting order options: B

a. Team owners will get to pick their preferred draft spot starting with team #12 and working back to #1.

b. The draft order will be randomized upon league creation and draft order will be visible to all owners.

 c. The draft order will be randomized 15min before the draft begins.

 

4. Choose one of these 3 platform's to play on this season (NFL.COM / ESPN / YAHOO) NFL.COM

 

5. Change the WR/RB flex position to WR/RB/TE. (Y/N) Y

 

6. Waivers will reset weekly based on ranking (Change from continuous rolling) (Y/N) Y

3. #1 plays #6 in the playoffs (Manual Intervention Needed)

4. TE position is now WR/TE

5. WR/RB position is now WR/RB/TE

The biggest rules most may want to re-visit are:

 

I. WAIVER RULES - My proposal is continuous rolling waivers till week 7 and then move it to reset weekly based on rankings the rest of the way once rankings shape up a little more defined. 

 

II. PLATFORM: I would like espn.com for a change.

 

Any other rules we want to re-visit? Thoughts??? I would like to wrap the rules discussion by the end of July. Thanks.

These are the only two issues, for me, as well.

I. I agree with your suggestion.

II. Yahoo

I'm good with any platform as I don't use their projections anyways. I've used all three in the past and have no quarrels with any of them.

 

I can get on-board with your proposed waiver changes.

I agree on everything you suggested with the waiver wire being continuous after week 7.  I just don't want anyone to get caught in what happened to me last season.  I prefer to use the waiver wire pick as strategy. The weekly reset throws that out.

I prefer ESPN but would have no problem with whatever the majority wanted.

You mean you prefer to keep the waiver wire continuous even after week 7, correct? I think that is what you were saying but I thought I'd confirm.

Yes I would prefer to keep it continuous after week 7 but a happy medium would be just fine. By week 7 most all of us are going to be using the wire anyway so I think your suggestion would work just fine for all.  It would tighten up the standings when crunch time comes.

I'm okay with waiver wire rule proposed.  Decent compromise.

 

I also would prefer ESPN, but will go along with the majority vote.

If we do ESPN, I would need your email ids. I will see if I can get your email ids from nfl.com, if not, it might be safer for you to PM me your email ids.

 

@IndyD4U @Virtuoso80 and @spoonfish have PM'ed me their email ids already.

Does anyone have experience being commish of a custom/league manager free league in ESPN? I see only the ability for either 4 playoff spots or 8 playoff spots, not 6 like yahoo or nfl.com. Both standard and custom leagues are like that.

 

ESPN has standard, custom and league manager leagues. League Manager leagues give everything we need but we cannot have more than 10 teams. ESPN is a bit too restrictive, it seems like.

 

http://games.espn.com/ffl/resources/help/content?name=league-types

 

Our best option might be to continue the nfl.com league with the changes we proposed, so that things will have the same feel for everyone.

 

Thoughts???

Figured it out. I have no idea why on earth ESPN defaults to 2 weeks per playoff match up.

 

Once I change it to 1 week per playoff match up, I could choose 6 players with 2 byes. 

 

Anyways, let us stick with nfl.com as most are fine with it.

I have a question.  If there was nothing wrong with the NFL league we did last year then why change?

I am fine with it if that is fine with most folks. It'd actually make things easy for me. I will just implement the happy medium waiver change and be done with it. I just did not know if it was a sticking point with many that it needed to be re-visited. The only thing that seems to be re-visited is the waiver wire rule.

 

Does that work?

OK, let us talk draft dates.

 

Does September 1st at 11 am ET or 7 pm ET work for you all? 

 

August 29th or 30th, at 7 pm ET also work for me. I want to be sensitive to @Juanjo and not have it too late since I remembered he is in Europe, if I am not mistaken.

I'd prefer 9/1 at either time.

 

During the week isn't ideal, but I could probably make it work if it's the best time for everyone else.

The 29th & 30th are good for me an more predictable.

I'm pretty sure the 1st will be fine, also. Either time slot.

Call me available, and I'll cross the bridge when I get there.

Thank you for your consideration with me.

 

One day or another is not a problem for me, but I really appreciate if you set the draft a bit early, I'm in Spain.

 

Set a time and I'll be there!

Right now, it is nfl.com and based on how everyone is leaning, it is very likely in the evening. Were you referring to September 1st, since we have floated 3 days to gauge availability?

Yes, the money league i play in has a "in person" live draft at 1 pm on Sept. 1st.  What were the other two days (I missed the post of the dates)?  I looked back at the posts, I can do either 29 or 30th.

You and @Juanjo are the two new teams. I sent you an invite to the nfl.com league to join.

 

Thanks.

I am starting college classes back up starting August 20th so as long as it doesn't interfere with my class schedule I would be fine.

 

I also play the organ for a church on Sunday mornings so that wouldn't work for me.

 

A weekend evening would be best. If we did it on a Wednesday evening, I'd only be available after 7 PM

    • Curious myself. They reported on Ajayi right away but nothing on Lynch. 
    • So you are saying players that work on technique are wasting their time?? I’m not understanding where you are going with this I guess. A WR stands still and catches balls from a jugs machine. Why, well that’s because he is practicing to get better. It all makes since to me!
    • You see how that's a conflation of two separate issues? (With a sprinkling of a third issue, tbh.)   1) Team A picking at #15 might have a problem with Hockenson, maybe their evaluation of his talent or character or whatever. Maybe they have a second round grade on him. Team B picking at #26 might have Hockenson as a top ten player on their board. And maybe a handful of other teams between those two have higher grades on different players that align with their needs, or maybe they aren't disciplined in their approach or have different draft philosophies. Maybe some of those teams don't see positional value in TEs, so they pass on Hockenson, leaving him available at #26. Again, the point is that not every team has the same board, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.   2) You're adding in the quality of the evaluation. Team B might think more highly of the player than anyone else, and maybe they're right and he turns out to be a stud. Maybe they're wrong, and he's a dud. But that's a question of player evaluation, not draft strategy.   3) Gronk was a second rounder himself. And he's turning out to be one of the best TEs in NFL history. Anyone saying 'Hockenson is the next Gronk' isn't being an honest evaluator, and I don't want my GM drafting players because he's convinced they'll be the next HOF player at any position. The odds stacked heavily against that. (I said the same last year to everyone claiming Barkley was a guaranteed HOFer who would singlehandedly elevate any offense to the top of the league.) That's a way to rationalize drafting a player you're in love with. It's not a disciplined draft strategy.
    • Agreed. My over arching point to BPA vs needs discussion is that the terms themselves can have different meanings, so the various good points made can get lost in the wash.   But I do think the preponderance of thinking lists BPA agnostic of attributes for a given scheme, which is how the national websites tend to do it.  So when GMs pick the 45th ranked player with pick 33, many criticize the pick as "reaching" for a need because they they don't stop to think that 5 or 6 players ranked in between weren't even considered a good fit for the team to begin with.   
    • Him and Lewis will elevate that draft class even higher.
