What excuse do you offer for the 4 seasons before that?

Should we vote?

I'm with Eric on the IR slot. It'll be interesting to see the rookie development proposal. Again, the only concern I have is how many good rookies are out there before it becomes a dart throwing contest.

Well, admittedly, that is part of the fun, isn't it? They won't all be blindly thrown darts - it's a matter or research and instinct, as well as luck. Whether they're "developmental players", "sleepers", or "practice squad players", it's always a little satisfying when guys like that actually pan out (since more often than not, they don't).

Is the "throwing darts" analogy any different than how the real NFL draft opperates?

The Patriots 6th round pick in 2000 was nothing more than a dart throw, and they just happened to hit the bull in the eye

Agreed.

As far as dart throwing because you (general you, not you as in Rock) don't know anything about rookies. Well, that's not the rest of the league's problem!

I still need more of an explanation on the practice squad because I don't think I fully understand it yet

It's the current rookie keeper system just more, I promise it isn't difficult.

But that's what we're working on. :flirt:

I'm not meaning to piss in anyone's cheerios. I'm not going to vote against anything... just raising a thought I had about how many rookies were actually great or even good and the drop-off was pretty steep. If you all think we have 24 rookies worth taking, you won't hear any complaints from me.

The intent is really within the original spirit of the Developmental Player: not simply a place to stash rookies that we know will be good, but rather a way for teams to take some chances on some deeper young prospects, without having to sacrifice the active roster to do so.

Yeah, pretty much what DL said. In the true spirit of a keeper league, its not just about this year.

Are trades allowed during the period after the keepers are picked and the start of the draft?

if so, is the 4 keepers rule in effect till draft day?
In other words, are teams limited to only having four players (plus rookie keeper) on their roster till the draft?

For example, after the players availble in the draft are determined, can I trade a couple of picks to another team for one of their keeper players and add him to my roster without having to drop one of my own keepers?

Your understanding is correct. Two examples:

Rock once traded some picks for Greg Jennings post keeper deadline so he had 5 players and Austin had 3 leading up to the draft.

Lsat season I traded my developmental keeper to Ash for one of his keepers.
