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

    • If we win a SB with Luck, I'd actually be fine with it. Right now I'd take 1 SB win and be happy. With Brady and Mahomes playing in the AFC, and young guys like Watson and Mayfield, a SB is not a guarantee. Not to mention we have to win when we get there.
    • Yeah. They will need to pick and choose how they keep because their payroll is getting up there. The more I think about it and research it though, it seems like it's more likely than not that they will keep him and let some of the other high end FAs walk.      I do too. This was more of a how I would do it, rather than what Ballard would likely do. I think Ballard will be restrained with the money again.        Yeah. I think in my next mock I will probably do some combination of Golden Tate, Randall Cobb and John Brown instead of Williams. 
        I think Iupati is much higher end talent and if he stays healthy he is a completely different animal to anything other than Nelson we have on the O-line. I think he's closer to Nelson than he is to the other linemen if he can stay healthy. Big if, but yah... 
        I think he's the same mold but I think he's much more talented and much more athletic. He tested like an elite athlete when he was coming into the league and it's starting to pay off. I also think he's probably a better pass-rusher than Sheard. Also again - Sheard's contract is up after this year and he will be 31. I'd rather have his replacement ready to go on the roster when we ultimately let him go.  Looking forward to seeing your version of a mock off-season. Also... I hope you post some scouting reports on players. Cheers.
    • Haha, I think we'd have to figure out 18 years of history on what's scripted lol. Brady is putting up a lot of the stats like Brady for real and the wins, I do believe a few of those SBs were scripted though. Especially the 2001 though with 9-11 happening and all that. I called that one as a 14 year old and made my uncle money where he bought me a nintendo gamecube.
    • Another guy I would go after in a heart beat if he reaches Free Agency is C.J. Mosley.  If you pair him with Leonard, that could be a lethal combination.  In the draft focus on WR, DBs and an Edge rusher and your set.
