Also they ruled that because no one took Betances it was okay, but heres the issues:
1) Some people may have altered their draft plans if Gomes was not available. in the NFBC when you are dealing with 15 teams and starting 5 OFs and youre in the late parts of a 50 round draft, Gomes might be attractive to some.
2) Some people may have seen Betances falling and tried to push him another round. Now the risk is anyone can take Betances before youre next pick but what you cant expect is someone going back in "time" (the draft order) and retroactively changing that
3) They made Gomes available to anyone who picked in these 16 picks between BUT then they would have to cut a player and said no one could then swap for that newly cut player. Said cut player for Gomes would only be available to teams going forward.
I had zero interest in Gomes or Betances but obviosuly some others may have and the principle is this should not happen.
If this happened in any of the leagues I run, I would say "No, other picks have been made since and this affects all that". The ONLY exception should be if the very next person hasnt picked yet. And even that would elicit some groans from the masses
