  1. I suspect Reid wasn't down with the Maclin decision and told Hunt it was him or Dorsey.
  2. For as long as they were and are generating clicks for those sponsors, yes.
  3. 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.
  4. Clicks are never bad for a brand.
  5. 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.
  6. If everyone's flexing (or should be) a QB due to the scoring system, isn't that a defacto 2 QB league?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Yeah, this is a really bad thing to do without some kind of warning before doing it.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. well this has CRUSHED my dreams of rookie landing spots. So many horrible landing spots.
  17. John Lynch takin' em to school his first day.
  18. Holy carp
  19. You have SDC in the right hand column still.
  20. Might re-word the title to indicate he hit her with a vehicle and killer her. Tragic indeed, no one should ever have to bury a 3 year old.
  21. Must be Synthetic April 20th.
  22. It's because The Empire is in Too Many Leagues, Big Time.
  23. " Jones likewise urged an end to the practice of investigating off-field misconduct. " Nope, he just has Zeke on his team.
  24. Please add HarleyKR07 and t-bone65 as mods for http://forums.thehuddle.com/forum/147-fdsb/
  25. Sounds like a reason to create a new BOTH league and draft it up that weekend.
