So, with several trades being made, a spot in the rules becomes very relevant. I just copied and pasted the rules from another league, so they are not particularly by my design. Here's the thing:

Once a player is traded he cannot be traded back to the same team for a period of 12 months.

Do you all like this rule? I suppose I'm fine with it, but if everyone hates it we can get rid of it.


Yeah, it's fine with me.


So the trick, then, is to be careful about players you let go. You'll never see them again! :-]

why 12 months? our draft starts around month 8, why not make a number that won't interfere with the drafting of such players?

Doesn't make a difference. 12 months covers the season, which is all that matters. This is not a keeper league.

Imho i think it would create confusion, obviously the slate is wiped clean after october... it would just be smart to say season instead of 12 months because it just makes more sense. ;)

Understood -- I just prefer not to change the rules document where it's not super necessary. They're written in stone! :*)

If everyone wanted to get rid of it, we would've. Otherwise, it's written in stone! :-D

Interest in a keeper league? If so, you're up in the draft (first pick, post keeper) right now..
