Highlight to read. It will include spoilers.



At what point do we suspend waiver moves from Tuesday night to Thursday night? There is a distinct advantage to reading spoilers and knowing if somebody appears or gets a big push. Obviously Seven's name was all over spoilers and he will be appearing soon, thus making for an unfair advantage to anyone who doesn't read spoilers.

Also, it appears as though Show is taking his long expected vacation. Which is why I tried to trade him almost immediately after the draft. But I can't complain. I will be happy to retain him for next season. If all goes according to other rumors I should be able to retain Kane too. :)

Farn, not sure where you got your info. I just read the spoiler and didnt read anything about either thing you mentioned.

Farn - there is no waiver suspension period, nor should there be.

Wiggs - i probably blocked your waiver pickup a couple hours too early. i'm kicking myself...

Yes and no Farn about the advantage it brings reading spoilers. Whenever there is a waiver claim I always check to see who it is and see if it's someone I'm interested in.....and can go to the various sites if necessary to read up.

Bluntly the biggest disadvantage to those more in the know (of which I am NOT a part) is the inability to have blind waivers.

That's why all free agent transactions are waiver claims. If someone claims Seven and you don't know why, I suggest you check the spoilers.

Well, I've been waiting for the right waiver body to come along to get rid of Farouq.
Specie's cut me off.
Only Mike D in front for now, and then I can wait it out for the right body.
