which is why I have always said we should do the draft in reverse. IE. if you have 4 minor leaguers already you shouldn't pick til the last round. Otherwise, you keep people until it is convenient to drop before the draft and pick up another guy. By doing it the other way it makes the draft and minor leaguers mean more IMO, but what do I know


Didn't we used to do it that way moons ago? If not, Ill back voting that into the rules for next year. The guy who has 3 minor league players to start the season should have to lose them in order to pick in the first round or wait until its his turn in the 4th.


We didn't before, but I have said it a few times and no one ever backed me up. I think we should put it up to a vote. I think it helps the integrity of the minor league system.


Don't say no one backed you up cause I know I said we should of

Thanks Adam. I agree with you that you shouldn't pick in the the first rounds if you are keeping minor league players, it makes sense to me to do it the way you are describing.

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

I propose a new rule starting next season that we can only keep players for up to 3 years after acquiring them. It can start the year after they are called up from the minors to keep an incentive to have good minor league players. I think it'll really help keep the league fresh since all the good players are now being kept in really low rounds. What does everyone think? Can we vote on it?

I would vote yes for this, create a poll on the main page. I would also say in 2016 or whenever this rule starts everyone is dumped back into the player pool and we start fresh.....just a thought.

I would never agree to that and frankly would stop playing if we went that drastic. This has been a long term keeper league for a reason and many of us have made decisions based on that


Wasn't it you that said you would be ok with refreshing the entire player pool during the draft? I mean why would you??? The best you have ever finished was 2nd in 2010 and most times you are a lock to fill the bottom half of the league so I can see your point....good luck this year ;-D

Just in case you forgot :

2014 5 of 10 * Wil the Thrill
2013 6 of 10 Wil the Thrill
2012 8 of 10 Football season yet?
2011 6 of 10 Crawford = Traitor
2010 2 of 10 The Price is Right
2010 5 of 12 Dee 12 Angry Men
2009 8 of 12 Team DL Live Free or DyNasty
2009 10 of 14 DeeRay USA South
2009 6 of 12 Deerays 12 Angry Men
