Its all well and good to be within the rules, but when your pissing off the majority of the rest of the owners who are your friends, you may want to re-think your strategy a little, or come to some sort of agreement.
The thing is, I thought we had
come to an agreement. We discussed at length the changes that were instituted, and every manager voted on them.
Last year, I repeatedly asserted my opinion that having different managers using different strategies (ie. punting saves and using SP/RP eligible starters) was good
for our league. That was, I believed, one of the reasons we agreed to have open P spots, as it clearly enabled every manager to build his pitching staff as he saw fit--and without relying on dubious Yahoo! position assignments. I remember saying on more than one occasion during the offseason that building that flexibility into the roster setup was a great change to make.
The fact that these guys are now complaining about it as if it is coming out of nowhere is truly shocking to me. Either they didn't understand what I was saying during the offseason or they are just now forgetting about it. Regardless, it just seems crazy to me that they didn't at least consider the possibility that some managers would attempt this strategy (I mean, it's not exactly an obscure idea). I still have no idea what effect they thought the inclusion of P spots would have if not this.
There's no arguing with these guys, either. It doesn't matter how sensible my points are or how eloquently I make them. They'll just complain all year. It's so frustrating. I'm not a confrontational person by nature, so I hate constantly having to bang heads with them and defend the way I'm managing my team.
And now what am I supposed to do? Change my strategy just to avoid upsetting the apple cart further? Keep it up and have them call for an asterisk to be placed behind any success I have. It's a no win situation.
mkultra, we do not have a roster limit. And yes, they would hate the idea of churning, that's for sure.
