Re: Add consequences for accidental pickups; Add 5 NA slots

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Thu Apr 11, 2013 9:45 pm

My two cents. We should definitely not penalize for accidents. We have multiple pages, FBC, Yahoo, Google Docs that we have to check to make sure we don't pick up someone accidentally. Mistakes are going to happen. They're reversed so quickly, there is no reason for a penalty. When has this mistake ever reflected on a matchup? However, this proposed penalty could. Completely unnecessary.

I do vote yes on the NA thing though. I like the idea of holding onto that player even if they've gone over the limit, but have been sent back to the minors.

1. There's one page to check: http://bit.ly/lfod - why multiple pages?
2. Accidents happen over and over - because people don't take the time to check one page. It's annoying to have to correct both for commishes and the owner who may want to pick up the dude who was just named closer (this has happened in the past, and these are usually the guys people don't expect to be on a farm team). There's not much if any incentive currently for people to check the roster page I guess.

I appreciate you taking the time to keep that page going Bwanna. I have used that page, when I could find it, to check players in the past, as I'm sure everyone has. It's not completely fool proof, however, especially for those of us with very limited time to spend searching for such things. I have been on the fence on staying in this league for the past two years. I enjoy it, but my time is minimal anymore. I make mistakes because I'm in a rush. I'm sure I'm not the only one. There have been more than one case where I didn't immediately know where to find this page (maybe I'm an idiot) and I've resorted to searching on the forum or Yahoo. Possibly this is where I've fowled up and picked up a player already taken. Seems like I've been pretty good about dropped said player right away without it reflected any statistics to my roster. It seems ludicrous to me to penalize members of a league for something that hasn't hampered league results. There has to be a better way. Sorry if I'm rambling and ranting about this, but when I saw this it just rubbed me wrong and something I've never come across in any capacity. Just seems like an odd thing to put in place to me.


Again, are we coupling these two votes here? Seems there are two things on the table, but only one voting option. I vote no to the accidental pickup penalty and yes to add the NA slots.

This seems like a good question and good vote...

Agreed, un-couple these votes.

I'm a definite yes for the NA slots added. Perfect for a league like this. Slight no for penalizing but I can sympathize with both sides.

Removed the NA slots, we can probably do that regardless of imposing some sort of penalty for not checking the farm roster.

edit: ok, i guess just changing the text screwed up the vote as well. i give.
