While we're doing clarifications: Are we saying that there will be a 2 round escalation of all draft picks? And does that mean round 1 & 2 picks cannot be kept? Or if not, what happens to them? Sorry, I'm probably just being thick...
Actually not sure about that. Now that we've started drafting some people may have drafted differently if we said round 1 & 2 picks cannot be kept so it would not be fair to do that.
Example-Longoria obviously has a very bright future and if he can be kept he's definitely worthy of being a first round pick, but if he can't be kept, CadensDad may have taken someone else over him.
Is that what you are saying the rule is ... that rounds 1 and 2 are exempt from escalating ... that it has been inferred in a discussion somewhere?
Scenario 1 - You want to keep players drafted in rounds 3 and 4 resulting in loss of picks 1 and 2. Tough choices have to be made whether to do that or not.
Scenario 2 where rounds 1 and 2 are exempt from being escalated - you want to keep players drafted in rounds 3 and 4 which escalates to rounds 1 and 2, but the players you picked in last years rounds 1 and 2 are exempt from being escalated. Therefore you get to keep your top 4 picks.
Is Scenario 2 now the rule?
NB. You guys may be getting sick of me questioning everything, and for that, I apologize. But if rules are going to be made up as we go along, I can't help myself.
