I'm not sure why this would be a requirement. It's not a requirement by Yahoo.

Just checking. It is at ESPN. Thanks.

I think we need an official ruling on this one...

I don't. No rule means it's not required, as it's also not required by the tool we use (Yahoo). Not sure why has even come up unless we're thinking of switching to another tool that requires it.

Could one of you explain to me how you can have a full roster, including a full bench, and not have a complete active roster when the auction is over? Regardless of what Yahoo happens to do after we go live, you must fill all of your spots during the auction, the only thing you don't have to do is spend all $260 doing it.

At ESPN the draft room will black out positions so that you must fill your starting lineup. It doesn't do that at Yahoo, so unless the commish puts it in the rules you don't need to. Some of my Yahoo leagues have it, most don't. Just wanted to be sure about it, not cause a problem. Sorry.

Nevermind, I misread TD's post. I thought he was asking if we had to fill the entire roster.

I don't mind voting to do that next year, as long as we decide to do it before we draft.

Different sites, different rules, sometimes it all runs together. Just wanted to be sure now rather than have a problem after the draft is done. Again, sorry for causing any problems.

You're such a troublemaker. ;-) ... or is that me?
