I just PM'ed you. You know I'm in. I just wanted to offer my general thoughts on some things you mention here. I fully understand it's your league and I'm not trying to step on your toes but I think it's good to have open dialogue here and have rules and such straightened out pre-draft.
Keeper--We have to do this. This is why I'm joining. That said, keeping eight player is way too many imo. I think 3-5 is good. We want there to be liquidity year over year. Otherwise, the first few rounds are not only weak in prospects, they're thin as far helping out those teams who are keeping the some knuckleheads because their team sucked the year before. While we don't want to punish those who draft really well, I still think eight is too many. At the absolute most, I would say six guys, one center, two forwards, two guards, and one player atb any position who was drafted in round five on, or something to that effect.
Money-$50's good. I wouldn't offer too many weekly and other such prizes or it'll make the final prizes sort of week. IMO, we don't need too many incentives. We're adults and know what we're getting into here.
Scoring--what are the eight categories again?
Weekly Auction--As far as the dollar amount each has to buy auctioned players, is this real money? In other words, might I have to put in another $30 on top of the original $50 entry?
D League--I think we should be able to call up a player but be able to send them back down and call them back up once more. Maybe twice more. Also, once I name my three D League guys at the beginning of the year, they're on my team for two years no matter what, and don't count toward the number of keepers I can keep?
I would not have two separate drafts...just one with vets and rookies. Mixing it up like that makes strategy more important.
