While I agree that having the game start + transaction limit would be a lot simpler than having to subract points, it had seemed to me to leave a loophole that the point penalty would close ( I guess it depends on how big the bench is). Maybe I'm wrong.
Using a FAAB instead of waivers, while intriguing, seems to be counter to the KISS theory ( and, I'm finding out, can be a hard sell to people not familiar with it) .
Unfortunately, I think you're right that my ideas might be killing some of the strategy - especially the weekly version.
Well, thats why I asked. I was hoping someone had tried these ideas before so I know whether to use them or not.( I've heard of leagues that use the daily version, but I don't know how well it worked over the long haul ). Anyway, thanks for your thoughts- it does help
