Hey Commish, why do you have FA locks on? You should be able to pick up a FA at any time.

They lock at gametime. All should be open now.

You should be thanking me for not starting RGIII. :roll:
Nah dude. Even if you had started him and Smith over Moore, I still would've won. Stafford needs to step it up though.

You didn't take McGahee into account, though. Still, you won fair and square.
That is true about McGahee. Who knew though? In my other league, I lost because I started Rodgers over luck (10 vs. 18 points; lost by 2).

Yes, I know. I'm saying you should change that setting to no locking on FAs.

Ya but locking em prevents people from grabbing players who do well during a game right away... waiting until the lock was lifted today I added a lot of.players that wouldn't have been there.

...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

I know. That's the same argument I gave for having at least some waiver period for dropped players, but that gets shot down every time I bring it up. But FAs are just that, Free Agents. They are on the open market and it should be first come, first served. Dropped players, should go through the process, and allow the worst team (or the next in the waiver order) first crack. My 2 cents

I'm already a Commissioner. One league is enough. But I do try to steer my fellow Commishes in the right direction. :wink:

Yes, and you compound the problem by locking FAs. Free Agents should be free to sign with whoever, and dropped players must clear waivers first. It's standard football.

I actually like this and agree.

Well, you know what, it's my league, and if you don't like it...

I did look at the scoring, and proposed changes, which you made. I didn't really look at the waiver/ FA thing though. I'm not sure I would have noticed the FA lock though, having never played the NFL's FF before. It's not too late to make the change if the majority of the owners vote for it. :wink:

Alright, let's vote. I'll put the poll up (keeping the no waivers though).
