  1. No one complained about it when SEA was 0-0. Or 0-1. Or 2-2. Wilson was clearly the better player and Flynn was known to be an overpaid desperation attempt, exactly what Glennon was viewed as. It's completely understood that Glennon's money is a sunk cost and there's nothing to be done about it now. It's only one year of guaranteed money, so the damage is over with at the end of this year and he's gone so there's nothing to be gained by starting him unless it's because Trubisky isn't ready.
  2. Apparently I will be reaching for Ezekiel Elliott because no way he's getting out of the 2nd round.
  3. You're not going to find many people that do it. If an owner blows their budget and misses there's a consequence. In most leagues it's just that they suck. In yours it's that they suck and get fined for it. I know two great ways to not get fined for your team sucking: A - Don't suck B - Don't play in leagues that fine sucking
  4. Tell them they can either figure it out themselves or you will just find another owner to take team 1 and they can either co-manage team 5 per the original agreement or both get bent. People making a stink on something like this in year 1 aren't worth keeping around and they definitely aren't worth capitulating to.
  5. I wouldn't have any interest in a league like this but to answer your other question, MFL will support changing the scoring each week. They do not automatically recalculate prior week scores, that must be done manually, and you have the choice to only apply changes to future weeks or past weeks as well: I've made changes to my scoring rules after the weeks final results have run, but they are not appearing updated for the players weekly scores. How do I update them for this week? Answer: You will need to go to your Home Page and choose one of the options that appears in your Home Page Message: Only apply these scoring changes to future weeks. Apply these scoring changes to week X results, as well as all future weeks. Apply these scoring changes to all weeks, from week 1 through X results, as well as all future weeks. Once applying these changes the effects to the detailed players reports will be immediate, but may take an hour to update the overall Top Performers Report for all players. NOTE: If your league choose to apply stats changes automatically for a week and you make changes to your rules that you only wish to apply to future weeks you will want to wait until after 10am ET Thursdays to make your scoring rule changes as it will automatically update the weeks scores when stat changes are applied.
  6. He's an idiot Browns fan. Or an idiot signature spammer.
  7. He's suggesting that because Calvin repaid part of the signing bonus it may create a case for the contract to be voided. It doesn't. The payback was because Calvin committed breach of contract by not playing. Detroit paid him a $16M signing bonus on a 7 year contract (although they pro-rate it over 5 years for cap purposes). Not honoring that contract, legally, subjected him to being liable to repay either 3/7ths or 1/5 (depending on interpretation - most would be 3/7 but because of the cap allocation perhaps NFL contracts specify this as the period) of the un-earned bonus.
  8. Tell your provider/host/vendor that that's a terrible feature. In this increasingly social world it's taking two steps backward to anonymize likes.
  9. This biggest challenge to an 18 game season is pay. Players aren't going to sign off on it without a huge payoff. 2 more regular season games would be a ton of money in owners' pockets, and the players are gonna want some. They will (rightfully) cite more risk/wear and tear of longer seasons will mean fewer seasons played for most. Schedule is trivial. They could go to two bye weeks per team pear season, start early August and have Labor Day Weekend be a bye week for all teams, then the 2nd bye for everyone between weeks 6-14 or whatever.
  10. What you don't recognize uadialej? I thought that was a very common name everywhere.
  11. I suspect Reid wasn't down with the Maclin decision and told Hunt it was him or Dorsey.
  12. For as long as they were and are generating clicks for those sponsors, yes.
  13. Wow the Bucs might possibly consider thinking of doing something or not doing something some undetermined time down the road. Who knew? Florio is a moran.
  14. Clicks are never bad for a brand.
  15. I think his size would have slowed the roll a bit, but he certainly would have had DeSean Jackson or Phillip Dorsett hype to him. I think the lessons of similar guys like Tavon Austin and Dorsett might have come into play though with his draft slot.
  16. If everyone's flexing (or should be) a QB due to the scoring system, isn't that a defacto 2 QB league?
  17. A couple of lessons I have learned from setting up a bunch of 2017 leagues: 1. All players begin as Unlocked. This means they can be picked up immediately, ad hoc, with no waiver run. You'll want to run a locking event immediately 2. There is a 4 round limit on waivers by default. Thing is, they hide this setting in Waivers setup and I know most BOTH leagues run BB waivers instead: Go into General Add/Drop setup and choose Always via Waivers Requests ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup <--------------------------------------- Here Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup Custom Waiver Order What Type Of Add/Drop System Does Your League Use? Always First Come/First Serve Always Via Waiver Requests Waiver Requests For Locked Players, First Come/First Serve For Rest Always Via Blind Bid Requests Blind Bid Requests For Locked Players, First Come/First Serve For Rest None Of The Above Hint: Select None of the Above if you want the commissioner to make all the moves or you play in a draft-only league. Then go into Waiver Request setup ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup <-------------------------------- Here Custom Waiver Order Change the rounds (top of page) to 8 (maximum available) Maximum Number of Rounds for each Weekly Waiver Request Window: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Hint: See our Help Center for details on what the term "Waiver Round" means. Then go BACK into General Add/Drop Setup and change it to Blind Bid Waivers. ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup <--------------------------------------- Here Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Waiver Request Setup Custom Waiver Order You'll see that Waivers Request Setup has been replaced by Blind Bid Waivers Setup, which doesn't have the Rounds option ADD/DROP AND WAIVERS SETUP General Add/Drop Setup Transaction Calendar Setup Waivers/Free Agents Setup Blind Bid Waiver Setup <------------------------------ Changed! Custom Waiver Order The good news is changing back and forth like this will NOT erase any existing bids. Tested and confirmed, so if you have owners that have put in some bids and hit this limit, you are safe to extend it to 8. I have a ticket open to see about increasing this, how stupid they choose such a low maximum. 3. Set it so that dropped players lock immediately - default is that they don't. Locked doesn't mean you can't put in a bid, it means they can't be picked up via FCFS and are only up for the next waiver run. Dropped Players Are Locked Until: Players are not locked when dropped. They can be immediately picked up (subject to league's waiver rules) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 day(s) later the following Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat at Midnight 1 a.m. 2 a.m. 3 a.m. 4 a.m. 5 a.m. 6 a.m. 7 a.m. 8 a.m. 9 a.m. 10 a.m. 11 a.m. Noon 1 p.m. 2 p.m. 3 p.m. 4 p.m. 5 p.m. 6 p.m. 7 p.m. 8 p.m. 9 p.m. 10 p.m. 11 p.m. ET The first waivers run after 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 days 4. The Add/Drop UI is different. You can only drop one guy at a time using this - horrible. You can cheat and use the IR or the Taxi function to do mass drops, it has the old radial button system to select all appropriate. I think that's it, but I'll add more as i think about them.
  18. He's not a FA. He only returned a small portion of the signing bonus, something like 10% of one year's worth of allocation. If he does un-retire he can demand that back perhaps, but his contract is tolled in terms of remaining years. He's under contract to DET until they release him.
  19. The only ones getting any money are the lawyers. IF the Pats have to pay anything out (which is already unlikely) then there will be a civil suit by the Lloyd family.
  20. No different than the guy scoring a TD against your defense and ruining the shutout. He gets 6 for the TD and you lose 6 (or whatever) for the shutout.
  21. Mike Glennon got $18.5M for one season. Boo friggin' who. All he has to do is play well and he'll make $30M more because someone will trade for that contract if he does.
  22. Nope http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2017/4/29/15442116/undrafted-free-agent-signings-tracker-2017-nfl-draft Joel Bouganon, RB, Northern Illinois Tanner Gentry, WR, Wyoming Franko House, basketball forward, Ball State Dieugot Joseph, OT, Florida International Andy Phillips, K, Utah Freddie Stevenson, FB, Florida State Literally, they list him as basketball player haha
  23. Yeah, this is a really bad thing to do without some kind of warning before doing it.
  24. Private forums can't be followed after the board upgrade, nor can threads within them. We removed passwords from a couple of forums so this would be enabled.
  25. I think Samuel's signing in a positive. At first I was concerned that that offense wouldn't know what to do with McCaffrey. But if they are taking Samuel too, this hints to me that there's a plan to fundamentally change what they do. You don't make both of these picks by accident. They may not go full Urban Meyer spread offense (or maybe they will with Cam???) but there's a shift coming. KB is overrated and Funchess is awful so there are a ton of touches available in that offense.
