    Brown allowed brown to go nuts. The man is 32 years old. I think it's time to stop looking for someone to blame for his poor decisions.

    I've been biding my time on addressing this in my leagues, but it's getting down to approaching crunch time. Personally I don't believe they'll play a down of football this year but we need to prepare for if they do. I commish a bunch of these and I know a ton of us are in multiples too. Not that we can establish each league's rules here, but we can at least get consensus type discussion going without a dozen different threads in each league's forum (some of which may be password protected). So, BOTH league commish/leaders/members, what are your thoughts for 2020? There are a lot of micro-topics to consider: Payouts Full season? Partial season? Late start? Early end? 2021 draft order? Contracts for those with year caps? What about players that opt out? IR/reserve/replacement players? If a player is temporarily placed on COVID Reserve? If a player opts out? What else?

    I can assure you, it wasn't for winning anything. They didn't like that there were two accounts from my address: mine and my adult son's. We both entered a few "single entry" contests in common and the following Septemebr we discovered that the two accounts were closed. No 2nd chances over there. There already flooded with dishonest sharks and the like and their own staff has been accused of dubious things. In short they suck. But go ahead and ban a kid and his dad for betting $20 bucks each week. Idiots.

    Much larger rosters, the NBA has 660 players in Florida, nhl has roughly 600 in each site. The nfl would need to isolate 3200 people for training camps, in several bubbles across several cities. schedule, and quality of playing field the nfl typically plays on 1 field once a week, having 4 games a week on the same field may lead to more injury. Although I wouldn't mind seeing matches within the division, there would be many hurdles to get all sides on board (and i dont think they have the time to do so) The other leagues where already part way through a season and are bubbling for less then half the time of the nfl season. Also nfl typically has more injuries, and players moved outside the bubble to attend a hospital would require time before being allowed back into the bubble. I think the cumulative effect of the challenge make bubbling difficult.

    that's a fair assessment Sam, maybe 3 days is a bit short and something like 7-10 days is a more fair time frame (time frame to be up to a majority vote by team owners). I think the point is there though. That the player will not be allowed to remain on an owners IR squad for an indefinite amount of time, and if they are left on the IR squad beyond a set time period that an action will be taken to remove that player.

    if this rule change were to get approved, I believe the "activation period" should be set at one week from the time they are removed from real world IR. I just feel like 3 days is too short a time, I dont think owners would be aware soon enough within 3 days. I feel like players coming on and off real world IR, there needs to be a notification to the owner that a player needs to be removed from IR, otherwise you could just end up not realizing they were removed in real life but still listed as IR in this league.

    The problem with best ball is those with deeper rosters gain advantage over those who have better starters but no bench. Some of us play in 16 team leagues with only 1 QB on our roster or limited RB, WR or TE. That is where it be an issue but it sure make things easier no lineups. People would have to change their rosters to get 2nd kickers and other stuff to compete better.

    I love it. Hawks always pick in the bottom half of the 1st anyway, and rarely do players of Adams caliber come out of it. He is only 24 yrs old and is crazy good all over the field. Super stoked the Hawks D just got exponentially better. Go Hawks!!

    Also the 59 positive tests include guys like Von Miller and Zeke these tests span the last 4 months and not the number currently positive. Kind of stupid to me they would threw this number out now to us. Here is what we want to know.........how many are currently positive ? Tell us that not who has been in the last 4 months though we would like a list of names just in case you are less likely to get it again (if that would be the case but no one really seems to know).

    That's for returning to work though. These guys are playing football with scratching and clawing and loving up on each other. I think you need a little bit more intense viral regulation in that scenario. Also NFL players are more likely to be asymptomatic as they are younger. I don't know that the rules are so easily transferred over

    Things already have changed at least the reports have changed to being placed on commish list anyone with the virus and would come off when ready to go. Could last any number of weeks as short as 1 or as many as needed. New report is to have a 3 week IR for real injuries instead of the 8 week one they had been using. This way teams can keep restocking their rosters without having to carry injured guys who would be out for say 3-4 weeks because you didn't want to IR them for 8. Possibly unlimited IR return (they were going to increase to 3 IR return this year). I just want football I already lost March Madness which was hard enough to take I can't lose football and needs to start on time my 2 week vacation is looming and I have yet to put in for it already had March Madness vacation cancelled this year.

    There's a few things we need to decide on before the season starts. Here are the two that strike me tonight: As Opie said, how to handle players being quarantined, given we are a contract league. I propose 3 extra IR spots. To save the Commish policing this, this year just give 3 extra spots with the same movement rules as normal IR: i.e. you can't be on IR if you're not on IR or being held back due to C19.. But also, what do we do if our league cannot complete a season, because the NFL changes or stops. Would we look at total points over the year, and how many games minimum would we need, when do we abandon and just roll over to 2021. The NFL might stop midseason and we need our plan agreed before. I propose, to kick things off, we complete eight games deciding on total points, otherwise we roll over. Money goes to 2021, players lose their year on a contract. We can all pay $5 for MFL in 2021. I also propose if the league stops during our playoffs, we end then and do total points on the playoff totals.

    Well boys, I just called and cancelled the Sunday Ticket. They also gave me 60 bucks a month off my bill for 12 months on top of that. Off to the range on sundays this fall!

    No sense of consistency with punishments etc. I remember the deflate gate stuff and they made Brady look like a "cheater", which I guess he was, but then Rodgers admitted to over inflating the balls and it was about as ignored as Jeffery Epstein killing himself. (Of course we all know he didn't)

    I'm pretty much to the point where I really couldn't care less if they have a season or not. Even if they do I think it's going to be an incredible cluster****. I hate it for all the people who work for the NFL and businesses who rely on them, but from a league standpoint I honestly don't think I'd miss it.

    I get that the NFL isn't fully guaranteed contracts and they will dump you at the drop of a hat, but it seems like if you underperform, well tough give me my guaranteed money. And if you overperform, even if you just signed a contract within the last year, it's I want more $$. Mostert has been cut from 5 teams or something, has one pretty good year individually but I think most of us agree the team success was largely because of their defense. I understand what he's doing, he is 28 and realizes no one will give him much of a contract when this is up so trying to get it now. But is this what should happen? Will contracts change because of this? Will teams start drawing harder lines? Like ok you sit then without pay and get fined?

    Stefanski used multiple TEs 57% of the time last year. Highest in the NFL. Njoku broke his wrist and missed 10 games. He was a healthy scratch in two of the games he was eligible. He caught 5 passes last year and dropped 2. from an article The Browns drafted tight end Harrison Bryant in the fourth round. But if Njoku is worried about losing playing time to a fourth-round rookie, there is something wrong with his competitive spirit. My guess is immaturity is at work. He doesn’t have a realistic view of his situation. He neglects the fact that he’s a weak blocker. His hands are suspect. He has a lot of physical talent but doesn’t realize how frustrating he can be to a coach because of his lack of consistency.

    Maybe I am misreading, but pretty sure the "fix" is being said sarcastically, which is why it is in quotes. Essentially if the NFL wants to have a season, they will need to put their head in the sand and skip the testing of players, as if there are no tests performed, there are no positive cases, thus no need to quarantine or not play.

    This is pure garbage. Stick to facts or don't post. It's still at least 10x as deadly as the flu. Have you been paying attention to the news - this is nothing like "any other respiratory illness." There is zero data to support that flying is more risky than close personal contact. When someone you care about catches this, come back and tell me how you feel.
