    How has Matthew been so good historically? The Bills have not been good for that long.

    I hope we can get you and kdestiny in somehow. I'm against going to 14 teams but if no one drops out and we want to consider that, I'm not opposed to putting it to a vote.

    right, good call, actually I forgot about that. yea we will return to 6 bench spots and 1 IR. changing to 7 bench + 3 IR was always intended as a one-year covid relief.

    Covid will probably still be a thing next season...

    I have no objections to having 2 more players, it's more money for me not to win.

    If the world has figured out this COVID mess, drop a bench spot and return to normal.

    I wouldn't mind adding kdestiny and bbf to this league.

    Tornís $100 cash out is being kept at the commissionerís office and will be used to pay his and Chris Scottís entry next season. So they are paid for 2021 assuming we donít raise the buy-in.

    Posting this here so we all remember....

    According to our latest data, I am clearly willing to always donate money to the FF cause, so lemme know if I need to pony up more next season.

    The proposal to expand the league to 14 teams and add BBF & kdestiny has garnered strong support.

    The expansion has been ratified.

    Votes in favor (8):
    Chris Scott
    Caito
    Matthew
    Torn
    Pablo Diablo
    Honey_Badger
    BGMaverick
    MMH

    Votes against (3):
    Fro
    Alex
    Beefy

    @Morrison has not weighed in but we have a majority regardless.

    Follow up questions to resolve will be:

    • Bench size - reduce from 6 to 5?
    • Playoff format - increase from 6 teams qualify to 7?
    • Buy-in/payouts

    i would've voted to expand, anyway.

    im fine with bench size staying at 6, tbh. but not really bothered if it drops to 5.

    should that be 8 teams qualify for the playoffs? how would 7 work?

    im cool with the buy-in increasing, if that's the consensus. regular season champ gets their buy-in back as a prize. maybe something fun like 'largest margin of victory' for a single game during the regular season gets a $50 prize. we did that one year in a work league and it was fun for shit talking. i think having some silly prop bet-esque prizes could help to keep people with bad records from checking out of the league, if that's something we're worried about at all. would decrease the payouts for the champion and runner up, but i think spreading a bit of the money around is never a bad idea.

    I like spreading it around. if we stick with a $50 buy-in I'd suggest something like this:

    375 - champion
    100 - playoff runner up
    75 - reg szn champ
    50 - playoff 3rd place
    50 - most total points (reg szn)
    50 - most points in single week (reg szn)

    We're discussing in the WhatsApp chat but here's a log of decisions made:

    -Sticking with $50 buy-in this year. We'll revisit next year about raising it.
    -Sticking with a 6-team playoff field despite our expansion to 14 teams.
    -Bench size reduced from 6 to 5 (to keep the free agent pool from being too dry). 1 IR spot (as normal).
    -Still discussing how many votes are needed to veto a trade. We were already going to raise it from 4 to 5. Now the question is do we raise it to 6? Likely yes, as that has most of the support so far.

    Payouts still not determined now that we have a $700 pool. We'll circle back to that later.

    Okay here are some options for payouts. $700 pool up from $600 in previous years. My take is that I like the $50 for highest single week scorer in the regular season because it's fun and it means even if you're eliminated from contention you still have a reason to play and go for the high score. In regard to "Most total points in the reg season", this is a good measure of the strongest team, and if this team misses the playoffs entirely (which has happened before and is even more possible in our new format) then I like having a cashout for them, but on the other hand if that team wins this award AND single-week points AND reg season champion then it's kinda overkill. Regarding a third place price, this would make the consolation game between the semi-final losers have importance, so we would get another important game during the Final week. I kinda like that.

    My preference is OPTION D. Vote now, or propose a new option.

    Option A: Nothing fancy, just bumping up the existing payouts (champion +50, others +25)
    $450 Champion
    $125 Playoff Runner-up
    $125 Regular Season Champion

    Option B: +50 to Champion, +50 to Single Week Points Leader
    $450 Champion
    $100 Playoff Runner-up
    $100 Regular Season Champion
    $50 Most Points in a Single Week (Regular Season)

    Option C: +50 to Single Week Points Leader, +50 to Reg Season Total Points Leader
    $400 Champion
    $100 Playoff Runner-up
    $100 Regular Season Champion
    $50 Most Total Points (Regular Season)
    $50 Most Points in a Single Week (Regular Season)

    Option D: +50 to Single Week Points Leader, +50 to 3rd Place
    $400 Champion
    $100 Playoff Runner-up
    $50 Playoff Third Place
    $100 Regular Season Champion
    $50 Most Points in a Single Week (Regular Season)

    Due to the league expansion to 14 players, we voted to reduce the bench size down to 5 (we had it at 7 last year for Covid, but 6 was previously our standard). We are sticking with 5 bench spots. However, in light of the fact that Covid is still around, I am going to suggest adding back the 2nd IR spot which we had last year.

    My 2 cents: unvaxxed players are more at risk to miss games, but even vaxxed players may test positive since we know there are breakthrough cases and these guys are being tested often. I'm not completely up to date on the NFL procedures (and they seem to be fluid) but if a vaxxed player tests positive on game day they'll probably have to sit. Therefore, given that we are going with a small bench, I think 2 IR spots would be prudent and I recommend you keep one of them open in case your SNF/MNF player goes out with Covid and you need to pick up an emergency backup starter.

    Let me know if you disagree. But I think 5 bench / 2 IR is the way to go and I will proceed with this unless people object.

    I'm very pleased with my team. Started the draft RB-RB-RB and I don't regret it

    Derrick Henry for me 2 years in a row. Chose him over Kamara

    Yea that one could have gone either way. I thought about it a lot and am comfortable with my Henry pick. Ultimately I like the Titans offense more than the Saints offense. In full PPR it probably would have been Kamara.

    For immediate release:

    I am enacting a policy where I will use commissioner powers to push trades through early, prior to the completion of the standard 24 hour voting period, when the following criteria applies:

    1. The timing is such that the trade review window overlaps or approaches the next games being played and early approval would enable the traded players to compete on their new rosters immediately instead of waiting a week.
    2. Both trading parties formally consent to early approval by messaging the commissioner.
    3. The trade is deemed fair and just beyond debate.

    Early approval is subject to commissioner discretion and availability and should not be assumed.
    Bumping as a reminder. Plus I'm adding a caveat:

    Another reason why it could make sense to push it through early is to get it in ahead of waivers. This only applies to an uneven trade (i.e. 2 players for 1 player). Hence I am pushing through the trade of Aaron Rodgers for Burrow and Murray because it will open up a roster spot for Beefy who can then make a waiver claim for that spot tonight, rather than waiting until tomorrow.

    Bottom line if there's a strategic reason why pushing it through early makes sense, I'm open to doing it, but it will still be subject to my judgment that the trade is fair beyond debate i.e. I feel comfortable ending the veto window early. Anything controversial I will not push through early.

    I disagree with the veto of the Derrick Henry/Hollywood Brown/Gronk for Mixon/Hill/Landry deal. It is clear that no matter how many people in here say they believe in vetoing for collusion only or say they want fewer vetoes, we are a league that vetoes based on trade balance. That’s what we do in this league. Balance the trade evenly or it’s out.

    You just basically said there is no way chris could trade for Derrick Henry, because to get RB1 you have to pay a premium. And paying that premium is not allowed.

    Very bad veto of a properly negotiated deal.
