Sounds good. I don't see anything missing from the list that needs to be addressed. I will say this, I love the flex system better than adding a 3rd running back. At least with flex you have some strategy. Ya know, strategy? The thing that's fun about fantasy football? The reason we got into this kind of thing in the first place? The less decisions we have to make the more we could just have a robot making lineups. "Choose which 3 of your 5 running backs to start this week." "Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh."

Well, right now we only have 1 RB position, 2 WR and one flex RB/WR. The proposed change would be to add another RB, making it total: 2 RB, 2 WR and 1 Flex RB/WR.

Hmmmmm.... I'm going to have to think about that one. Not sure I like the thought of people just stacking RB's. Right now with a maximum 2 RBs the strategy is in drafting and starting the right number/calibre of players. We open up another straight RB slot and it could just be about picking more running backs.

Plus if we do expand it would just mean we start scraping the barrel of RB's. We'd feasibly have a 30th ranked RB starting for a team. If we add one I'd like to see it maybe adding a flex slot rather than just RB;.

Argh I dunno I need to think about this!

(These are just my rambling thoughts, not anything conclusive)

Regarding expansion, I prefer that to be something that is decided on well in advance. It really handicaps those with 4+ keeper worthy players, and at this point gives them next to no time to decide what to do and where to jetison these extra players. Essentially it's extra punishment for the best teams. I think that's something that should be voted on for the next season, not the current one. Just my 2 cents.

Would anyone like to nominate a potential franchise owner? Keep in mind, the person we want to bring on will be enthusiastic, is a Nightly REGULAR... not someone that makes a few post once every other month just to obnoxiously talk sh*t then leaving,

You guys suck...



See you in August. :flirt:


Edit:

do we really need to expand when austin is M.I.A again? even during the season he only keeps his roster up to date,

During the season, I check the general thread at least a few times up to gameday and respond to when addressed. Not to mention I'd have regular discussions outside of NN with a league member to try to stay in the thick of things. I apologize as my absence during the offseason isn't helping with the rule proposals, but consider me at least a regular lurker again from this point forward.

Yeah, I guess it would help if I remember which freaking league I'm talking about before I weigh my fat ass in, wouldn't it? Duh.

Okay, as long as we don't lose a flex position I'd be fine with it. In fact, rather than adding a second RB I'd love to see a second flex added. It adds to the decision making and thus the strategy.

Okay, I'm finalizing the ballot now. I'll send it out as soon as I'm done.

Both Ashaman and otanku have said YES if we expand. Originally, I was going to suggest we vote the new members in, but since nobody has nominated anyone else and those two are the only members we've ever talked about (besides B-Man, who has left Nightly many moons ago) I think it's safe to say everyone would be okay with them.

Okay... hope to have the ballots out in a bit. I'll be sending them out individually, so just reply to me.

Got 2 of them. 7 to go.

I have no idea how you found it. I had written it in deer urine.

I believe some of the issues on the ballot can have quite an effect on one another, such as expanding the league to 12 while also making the the lineup larger will greatly reduce the depth of the waiver wire in an active league such as this one.

Thats why I just voted against errything. I'm all fit expansion, just not less than a month before we usually draft.

I've been wanting to say nearly this exact thing since about five minutes after I last posted, but haven't had internet access since then. Glad someone beat me to it.

Just got the new DSL working tonight, so I should be back in the swing of things. I'll go take a look at the ballot now...

You should know that I am thoroughly adept at tracking and identifying all types of urine. Human or animal.

Yeah, but nobody has done anything with their team this offseason and we still have plenty of time before keeper selection to gather our thoughts on what to do with our teams if we add two more. We would be exactly in the same place if we did this the day after the Superbowl. I think having the option A, where we still get to keep 4 keepers, alleviates any drastic changes that would make us rearranges our draft plans. I think everything is going to work out great... assuming if there IS any football this season :)


We're almost there! We've got 8 in so far, with Dex voting later today and Exodus, who has already read the ballot yesterday but hasn't sent it in yet, so I'm assuming that will be in sometime today. The only person left would be the Irish one, who I haven't seen in a while. The only email I have for him is now undeliverable. Does anyone have any contact info?

We've already clinched quite a few categories. Expansion is still undecided. LOL, I just realized that there are ten of us and we could potentially tie! I guess tieing is something this league is used to...
