1 Question for next year's drafts.... on Sat 06 Dec 2014, 9:37 am

First I need to say that I'm not trying to start a big thing. This is just a simple question that I think should be answered before the season ends. So don't take any of this offensively, I'm simply looking for clarification on how a rule is going to be applied. That's all. I love all you guys Smile Anyways, here is the rule I'd like to know how we are going to handle...

iii. If you finish below 80 points for your season score, you will be ineligible to draft in the top 3 of any draft the following year

As it stands now, how are we going to handle this if NE doesn't get to 80 points?

Are we going to be enforcing this rule? I've never agreed with it personally, but it's listed under the rules so I'm guessing you have it there for a reason.

And second, what is the exact resolution for his picks?

I see three situations that need clarification before the year is out. What happens to his own FA pick? If we enforce that rule, does that mean he picks 4th no matter what?

Whoever has his Supp pick, does it downgraded to the 4th pick?

And finally, the most important, what happens to his 1st that KP has? Does that now become the 4th overall pick and then teams placing 7, 8, 9 now are the top 3 after the lottery since he would be ineligible?

Thanks for answering my questions and thanks for keeping everything up and going this year. It has probably been the most organized and helpful year so far. Having the players listed underneath the rosters has helped so much, especially during the draft. Hopefully we do that again next year. Welp. Have a good weekend.

KP must surrender NEs first round pick

NEs fa and supp become last pick of the each round

Join or Die's pick automatically go to the first of each round since he was the reigning champion during this season.

Seems pretty fair...especially KPs surrender of the 1st rounder


Spence, I appreiate your well thought out and worded questions. Not easy to ask...but we need to land on these answers sooner rather than later just in case Nolan can't bring his score up. Obviiusly I should not be coming up with answers alone...I really do want to be fair to the entire league and its integrity.

yea im definitely trying to word it correctly. not trying to start a big thing but it really does need to be answered. mainly because the first three picks next year appear to be peyton manning, aaron rodgers, and drew brees. so its very important to know before the season is over what happens if he cant bring up his score.

Graham and I talked about this on the way to shiner last month. The wording says the player under 80 is ineligible for the top 3 ("YOU will be ineligible as opposed to YOUR assigned pick will be ineligible).

That means any pick Nolan has cannot be in the top 3 next year unless he gets above 80. Any pick that started with Nolan but is not his anymore is not affected by the rule.

Graham can weigh in on this but that was what we talked about last month when the rule looked like it might apply

As for why we have the rule, it is to discourage tanking and encourage guys turning in lineups when they are out of it.

Tanking doesn't apply much in this case since Nolan doesn't have his pick or his Supp pick (and tanking for FA is almost pointless).

And Nolan has done a pretty good job of staying involved and turning in a lineup (aside from 1 whole week and a few individuals started on bye weeks).

So in this case the rule didn't apply much since he didn't have his own pick and since he did a pretty good job as a good owner without the rule motivating him.

But I know last year the rule motivated me to keep a decent roster to stay above 80 instead of selling every last part I had.

just checking in before the season is over on what we are doing with NE. am i correct in assuming if things stay they way they are NE will not be the 1st overall in the Free Agent draft? that means i will be the 1st overall in that particular draft correct? thanks brother!

the way i understood it when we talked about it in shiner TX, was that his team is ineligible to be the top 3 in the draft. Say he gets pulled out of the deck 1st, nolan will be placed in 1st position in the draft.since i have his pick i would be up at #1. i believe he has justins 1st rounder, if justin was picked 1st it would move justin down from 1 to 4 because nolan has his pick in the 1st round. however justin would still remain in the same draft order position as determined by the lottery. So justin would be the last pick in the second round, but 4th in the 1st round,. since it only effects nolan and not justin. being that nolan doesn't have his own 1st rounder he has justins

hope that makes sense

yea i get all that. i was talking specifically about the free agent draft. the rules says he is ineligible for the top 3 in ANY draft. so in the FREE AGENT draft, the way i see it, i would be the 1st overall. correct? if all things stay the same of course.

iii. If you finish below 80 points for your season score, you will be ineligible to draft in the top 3 of any draft the following year


Also, the Free Agent draft is the only draft that doesn't reflect the lottery per this other rule...

g. FREE AGENT DRAFT will go by reverse of previous season’s standing finish.

I have a personal stake...so I understand my leaning...

I have Nolan's FA PICK, so as it also pertains to Anthony's first round pick...it remains as is...since I aquired the pick before the season

Nolan gets penalized not his "picks"

Sorry, I have his Supp pick...not his f/a, so as it pertains to NE free agent pick that he is still in possession of...I agree wih the conversation so far
