    I want to be in a league where everyone tries hard.
    Trust me, I'm trying hard. I just don't think it's that much to worry about. I'm sure Bill can change that **** if he wants.

    If not, whatever.

    Well, I can agree with morehead.

    Once I saw the 4 bench players, I got excited because I knew I could add more wiggle room to play around with.

    Sorry Bill, but it's the truth.

    You're not giving up any waiver position to get scrubs. You don't have to put in any waiver claims at all. The waivers were only put in so that when the bench is expanded, people couldn't go out that second and pick up whoever they wanted. As soon as the waiver period passes (tomorrow), you'll be free to pick anyone up without effecting your waiver position.

    I'm not changing any major rules, such as scoring. The benches were small, and the teams are generally thin. I expanded the bench by four slots to provide more flexibility and activity. If you don't need the additional players, then there's no need to add any, but there's no downside to it.
    I don't have to lose my waiver position but a lot of the good FA's will be hoarded by other players.

    And you should have to give up a roster spot to pick up a free agent. Its part of the game. Deciding who to dump, and considering the risks is part of the game.
    Again...this favors poorer players. Its easy to pick up a FA if you don't have to lose another player. Where's the skill in that?

    Okay, just wanted to be clear what you meant by "players."

    I don't think that's necessarily true. How does expanding the bench by four slots, to pick up players that you -- yourself -- call "scrubs" favor anyone disproportionately. I'm not restricting the upper-tier teams from expanding their bench, it's a blanket decision that's equal for everyone. If you want to maintain your waiver position at #2, then that's fine -- don't put any claims in. Chances are, if you don't put any claims in, you'll be boosted to #1 on the waiver position.

    Precisely. If you suck at drafting, this rule helps you. So if you draft well, you have less of an advantage.

    Whats that crap?

    First of all, I never called anyone scrubs.
    Secondly Alfred Morris was a "scrub" last year. So was Jason Witten (in our league), not to mention Knowshon Moreno at the end of the season.
    Finding these guys is part of the game.

    But then everyone else drains the waiver pool by adding to their roster. You don't see this?

    Well, unfortunately, it can't be changed back.


    I still fail to see where some teams are favored, when the waiver is in effect. Everyone would be favored equally.

    There are a couple of players that weren't drafted that I have my eye on. If we expand the rosters, they will probably be gone. And at no cost to anyone by having to sacrifice a roster spot.

    Its a crutch for bad players. 19 players? That's nuts.
