Any thoughts on voting now for what we do in the following offseason (for the 2014 season) right now, while it's fresh in our mind, so as to maximize planning time, etc.? Always good to get it on the books ASAP in my experience ;-D


IMO these additions should be just about enough. I'd like to have something of an existent waiver pool, and rosters are getting to be plenty deep enough.


That can be your vote then ;-) Not being a dick, just sayin' - I don't even know how I feel about further expansion, but we've talked about it and some interest has certainly been there, so I figure it's worth a vote at some point ...

I wasn't aware that we had talked about expanding rosters 3 years in a row, but that's fine. If people want to vote for it, then so be it.

If Omaha wanted to take back his vote(s), would that take us below 7 for any of the choices?

2013 League Question

Postby Bwanna » Fri Dec 07, 2012 1:26 am

Yes. viewtopic.php?p=3559656#p3559656

Remember, we are adding OF, P and BN spots for 2013, bringing the total roster size to 29.

Add consequences for accidental pickups; Add 5 NA slots

Postby Bwanna » Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:59 pm

In order to greatly reduce the occurrence of accidental player additions who are owned by other managers, I propose that if someone fails to check the farm rosters at http://bit.ly/lfod and adds a player that is already owned by another manager that the following consequences occur:

1. First offense of the year: Warning
2. Second: Forfeit one in-season pickup
3. Third: Forfeit second in-season pickup AND 5th round draft pick for the following season
4. Fourth: Forfeit third in-season pickup AND 4th round draft pick for the following season
5. Fifth: Forfeit forth in-season pickup AND 3rd round draft pick for the following season
6. Sixth: Forfeit fifth in-season pickup AND 2nd round draft pick for the following season
7. Figure this out - but it won't happen.

edit: remove this from the proposal:
II. I also propose that we add the max NA slots (5 currently) that Yahoo now allows so that owners can choose to add their farm players to their roster as they see fit. These NA slots can only be used for already owned farm players, not NA players that are otherwise free agents.

Am I seeing two things to vote on, but only one voting option?
