It's like football, but it involves more gambling & self-loathing

I've been in the league a while, and I don't remember that change. Point taken and all, but that's enough time for the league to have evolved a bit, and the nature of dynasty roster management to have changed along with it.
So much road and so few places, so much friendliness and so little intimacy, so much flavour and so little taste.

Friendship is better than fighting, but fighting is more useful.

#1: Adding One IR Spot
Yes.
Which could mean adding a 21st roster spot or converting an existing spot. Are we clear on which one we're voting for? I'm for it either way, but prefer just to add a 21st spot.

#2: Adding One starting FLEX spot
No. We're a big league with shallow enough rosters already.

#3: FAAB instead of waviers
No. Same deal as BBF: intriguing idea and all, but it doesn't fit the MOTML's character.

#4: Division realignment each year based on standings
Yes.

#1: Adding One IR Spot

YES (don't really care, so won't vote no

#2: Adding One starting FLEX spot

YES (definitely could use another scoring spot, though would prefer RB instead of flex)

#3: FAAB instead of waviers

YES (Its the most fair "waiver" system out there. you just have to manage risk vs reward on bids)

#4: Division realignment each year based on standings

YES (If for no other reason than to play against different teams and generate new schedules)
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!

I think it is set up in ESPN as one of the options to do FAAB and it takes care of it all, so I don't think I need to do anything.

Only a few more left to vote (I've got half via email). If I don't get some responses by the weekend I'll consider them abstaining.

FAAB is built into the espn system...BBF just has to click the settings

Sorry guys, my kid got really sick and it's been a ton of work. The draft can start as normal on Sunday and I'll try to update, but you guys know what to do. We've never had a trade vetoed so making sure those are approved on time aren't really concerning to me. I think all 4 rules are going to pass if we use the 60% we used before.

Hope your kid is ok. No worries its all for fun and I think we pretty much can run ourselves if needed. Focus on the important stuff.

I used 60% of people who voted.

IR spot 10/13 77%
Flex 7/13 53%
FAAB 8/13 62%
Realign 12/13 92%

I'll change the divisions when I get a chance.
