we also had the cycling issue in our league and while i was one of people doing(more so at the end of the year) it became a real problem in the playoffs, to the point where the majority of pitchers good and bad were on waivers or being dropped daily. while this is an old debate and no one way to say its fair or not it did piss off alot of people in my league. One way we are going to combat this issue for this years league is that since we are a money league we have added a charge per transaction. Each team will X amount of transactions free and then charged after that. So if someone wants to go thru the whole spot start or cycling it will cost them some decent money in the end. This has seemed to make most of the league happy. Just a thought if there is money involved in your league. ALSO to avoid this problem in the playoffs we are also locking rosters for the playoffs like real baseball and you will only be able to add players in one of yours goes to the DL.
