If it's how Justin is describing, I'm Not sure I like that.... I'd finally gotten used to how to best use the newer way we've been doing it. Why mess with it again?
Or, is this how it's been the last two years and we are just misinterpreting the description?
Yeah it's been hard for me to read ANYTHING since the terrible new layout debuted on Yahoo, so I obviously missed the discussion. I prefer the "old" way, which would be option 1.
As for the draft, I work overnights so I decided to sleep in and do the autodraft... kinda wishing I hadn't. Not terribly thrilled with my lineup and stable of WRs. But we'll see what happens. I gave up on my team in week 1 last year so I'd like to avoid making that same mistake this year.
Thanks Brent. Does this mean the worst team gets the first pick up of the week, and if they stay the worst team they get the first pick the next week and so on? When do the waiver submissions actually process?
Why change it? Mostly to try and get people reading things. It had also been suggested to me and the only way to get feedback (understandably, the new Yahoo layout is hard on the eyes and difficult to navigate) is to make the change and then see what comes from it. A few people had suggested it, certain aspects seemed reasonable so I thought what the heck.
That said, I'm not wed to it in any way. Rolling waivers seems to place value on retaining your standing and not making frivolous waiver wire selections that will send you to the bottom of the order. It creates a certain value to your waiver standing that won't occur if you keep winning. But there are negative aspects in that some players will predatorily pick up players they have no need of just to use them as trade bait or to keep other owners from obtaining them. I say negative but do understand that it is part of the game. It also functions as insurance against future injury.
Since it's the start of the season we have a couple of days to mull it over (post draft waivers open up Friday, I think - I can't check Yahoo from work any longer). Early responses to the change are negative. In the absence of arguments for (either here, on yahoo or by email to me) I'll just change it back to how it was last year on Sunday (later on as I have a CFL game to attend and my kid is at a basketball tryout) or Monday, prior to the usual deadline so it functions as it did previously.
