From the week one round up: "No Dynasty for Old Men were saving like they grew up in the depression, notching ten overall." 

Hey all, I'm Jake. I'm taking over the Arsenal franchise. With any luck, I'll have this ship turned around within ten short years. Anyone who is in the market for a decent starter (Ryu, Morton, Gausma

We actually both wanted to go a different route. But no ####### way we could pass up the shtick of both top picks being yours

2. No

3. Yes

We've made it through nine years without official league bylaws but I'm going to suggest a 2/3rds majority is needed to approve rule changes.  If everybody votes, 4 no votes would be enough to block a proposed change.  

Dispersal has 10 total votes w/ 1 against so it's happening unless somebody changes their mind.

Weekly lineups already has 4 opposed so it's pretty much dead

SV + HLD and in-season transaction restrictions are still on the ballot.

 

ETA:  if anybody disagrees w/ 2/3rds voting, feel free to suggest an alternative.

Vote on the majority needed to pass a vote?

No on all 3.

I could be open to both 1 and 2 if we also added some flexibility in terms of the number of P spots available in the lineup.

That's four noes on SV+HLD.  Both it and weekly lineups don't look like they'll reach 2/3rds.

Two are against changing in-season transactions so far (rodg12 and Sparty)

Hoos is still the only one opposed to 2017 dispersal.

I owe money still.  Where is it going? 

 

I would LOVE weekly lineups fwiw.

I haven't played a weekly lineup league in years.  How would that work with our IP rules?

I have no idea.  I didn't even know we had innings pitched rules.  It's amazing I won two titles here.  R.I.P. Prince.

2017 Edition

10th year, 2nd board, 3rd thread

13 teams, 481 players

RIP former league members Finless and Tremendous Upside

Link to old thread

Next steps:

See if defending champ Hoos is serious about leaving

See if Greedygoat's friend still works for CBS

Competitive balance draft

one round add/drop draft in reverse order of 2015 standings

waivers cycle using waivers order carried over from last year.

Open transactions (FCFS) for the remainder of the season

Spartans Rule is holding the funds again this year (I think)

These were the two dispersal proposals from last year. 

On 8/5/2016 at 11:02 PM, Eephus said:

I'll throw out my pre-season dispersal proposal again.

  • Protect 22 players (a full complement of starters)
  • 2 round dispersal draft in reverse order (non-snake) of season standings - 26 total picks
  • A team can only lose 3 players in the draft so the worst case is a team loses their 23rd-25th best players, but they can pick up somebody else's 23rd and 24th best.
  • A team may draft their own unprotected player
  • Teams that lose more players than they pick-up get an extra compensation pick at the end of the pre-season add/drop draft.

It'll redistribute the wealth a little while preserving the continuity of franchises

:shrug:

I thought a protect 30 and do a seven round dispersal would be cool.  Then the top teams protect their system but we still have a good deal of interaction.

But this proposal is good also, I just think some sort of draft every year keeps the interest as high as possible.

We didn't get enough veto votes to reject the in-season amateur transaction ban so I guess it's still on the table.

Let's confirm everybody is still in for 2017 before finalizing rules.

I never did get money from NV or PIK. I also never paid Cheese, but he just won $50 so that can be a roll-in for this year if he's back.

I'm in and totally fine with rolling winnings if I hadn't said so. Thanks for remembering

Let's see if everybody else is still in. 

If someone else leaves we'll pool the teams in a redraft for the new teams like we've done before. 

If only Hoos is bailing, we'll have to consider other options including contraction to 12 teams.

I'm for expanding  up to 14 or contacting to 12. Alternatively staying at 13 works for me also. Don't think 11 would work and 15 might make it a tad too thin.

Everybody has checked in except @Doctor Detroit but I assume he's in for 2017.

Options:

1. Contracting to twelve teams.  Disperse Hoos' talent in a two round snake in reverse order of standings.

1a.  Contracting to twelve teams and do something else w/ the orphans :shrug:

2. Recruit new owner and stay at thirteen.

I'm still up for the competitive balance draft in addition to whatever we decide wrt. Team Hoos otherwise all this drama was for nothing but first things first.

The only other business that needs to be decided is the in-season amateur ban.
