    Going forward, can we simply enforce collecting before the draft? Seems like a problem in our leagues every year

    Still waiting for both of these payments. Really don't want this to drag out any longer, can we get this done, pretty please with a ****ing cherry on top?

    Just a heads up, there are a few teams with players in the minors that have long passed the GP limit. Go to team > roster violation to see if you're in violation.

    There are also guys that haven't set their lineups in weeks/months.

    So Eichel just traded an unsigned college FA that I guess he picked up earlier. Really don't want to be that guy, but either we need to rescind that deal or may just maybe kill the stupid rule regarding players passed on the draft. Can't we just say once a player goes undrafted in his first year of eligibility he's available to be picked up as a FA? Really didn't want to even mention it, but let's just kill this stupid rule once and for all. It brings nothing but problems.

    I agree. I honestly never understood the reason for the rule. Is there a single benefit?

    Once they're draft eligible and get drafted or go undrafted they should be free game. If someone is scouring the backwoods for players and they find a gem... good on them for being ahead of the curve.

    yeah it only really benefits managers who don't pay attention year round, and I'm not sure why that is rewarded really. I mean most of these players probably won't make a large impact, but they are still assets that should be allowed to be picked up.

    It sure would make policing it a hell of a lot easier.

    I'm fine with this. Creates a lot of problems, and really isn't necessary.

    Shouldn't we wait for the off-season to make this change... or at least move it into this year's thread?
    When my time comes, I want to be burried face down, so that anyone that doesn't like me can kiss my ass.

    How many staples did they put in his head? 13?,” Leiweke asks, getting more animated. “They sewed his head back together and he never missed a minute. He literally yelled at our trainer ‘Band-aid it, I’m going back in’. This is who we are at MLSE now, Michael Bradley."

    Not a fan of making a change mid season because someone messed up... if we want to do this then do it after the entry draft this year

    When I saw you post I knew you were going to basically ask if you were in the league.

    No you're not.
