But, unfortunately, this is a unique situation where I took over as new commish after the keeper deadline...otherwise i would certainly have addressed this issue 1st. The previous commish was a bit lax in his duties (in fact, the winners haven't even been paid yet...though everybody paid on draft day last year) so there is some necessary house-keeping that needs to be done despite that fact that keepers are already set.
Exactly how I handle this situation (and other issues that need to be addressed) depends primarily on how intrusive the potential change is. So please let me know what you think about the change itself...not the idea of changing rules at this time.
I hear you on the fact that you came into the commish position late and I agree that it is probably a very minor change.
But I think that most commissioners and players would agree that any sort of changes to scoring, positioning etc. must be put to a league vote no matter how minor or unintrusive they seem to be.
Now when you put it to a vote and you want to argue that its such a minor change that you only will need a majority to change the rule, well thats another whole can of worms and would probably take up another thread:). But there should definitely be a vote on the issue.
