0 Subject: RWF S14 Draft Discussion

Posted by: Great One
- [065867] Thu, Jul 16, 2009, 10:30

RWF Reboot for Season 14
New Format of 2/5/7
2 Keepers to be chosen from non-high scorer
Season 15+ will be straight 5 Round Draft
Season 14 will be longest in RWF history and run to Wrestlemania
Season 14 Opening Waiver Priority will be opposite of 1st Round order

Proposal
Draft Picks cannot be traded more than 2 seasons ahead.
This is an effort to limit "Florida Marlin-ing" approach which has led to "bar-belling" of the league balance of power.

I texted Cliff about Batista. I agree with GO that he should be given that info and given the opportunity to change his pick.

That said, I don't think we delay the draft because of it. Change it? Sure. Have to wait? Not so sure.

my only concern with keeping the draft going and letting him change later would be if someone wants Batista right now and is ok he'll be missing.

Well if anyone really wants him right now they can state so and we'll wait a bit, but I think we can keep going otherwise. I emailed Zyre.

And as long as nobody wants him 1st round, we can at least complete 1st round til Cliff confirms either way. If he wants to adjust - then he can have the sandwich pick between 1st and 2nd? I don't think thats unreasonable. We all got to move up a pick for nothing so everybody wins.

I think we need to keep going, Cliff said he will not be around all day and i think we need to keep this thing moving.

Don't worry about it.
I'm fine with the pick.
And no, I didn't know, but that is my problem.

They have filtered everything in the world at work now, so can't get to anything from there.
Just have to live with it.

Bobo- Would you have take kozlav if I took taker with pick 2.9? I went back and forth and decided on Kozlav. Might have been a bad choice.

guys, we will need to be a little more active to get this draft finished by MNR. Use email queues and such.


Btw, I can be reached via email for my picks all day today.

He's so far away though, not til Royal Rumble would I expect to see him. I like Killings a whole lot though, so if Killings was gone I probably would have scooped Edge up there.
