    Well, according to Yahoo, my team had the best draft.

    I guess playing out the season is just a formality.

    I finished 6th at the end of the last regular season............I figured with you there, I'd have a chance of finishing better.

    We'll see about that. Got Dan Bailey kicking tonight and moved future ROY David Wilson to RB in place of Adrian (No Pre-Season) Peterson

    Can someone please explain the rationale behind this?

    Waiver Note: All Free Agents will be placed on Waivers when their game for this week is scheduled to begin. Free Agents on a bye week will be placed on Waivers when the last game of the week is scheduled to begin.

    I was happy to see Cruz drop three passes, cause I got Hakeem Nicks. Unfortunately, he earned a whopping 5.80 for the night.

    I was hoping he would drop them all, but it only hurt me since Eli was my starting QB. I was hoping everyone BUT Cruz caught a TD. Ironically, my tight end that I had on the bench had the only receiving touchdown for NY. I couldn't buy a break last night. LOL

    David Wilson absolutely killed you last night, though.

    Never state your interests about possible pick-ups. There are people here who set their alarm clocks to make sure they have success stealing your guy. :)

    There are 4 options for the commissioner to set under "Waiver Rules." One of the options is "None." The other 3 look like this:

    Was it set to none last season?

    What is the waiver period on guys you drop?

    The waiver period for dropped guys is 2 days.

    Last year, the weekly waiver was set to "None." I think we should use that again this year.

    The question is, "When should I change it to None?". If I do it now, do multiple people want this Ogletree guy? What is the fairest way to make the change?

    I sent everyone an email on how this will be addressed. Feel free to post or send me an email if you have questions.

    Please post about it. I want to see this play itself out in overly dramatic and public fashion if at all possible.

    Sure..... :)

    Hi,

    One of the default settings, Weekly Waiver, was turned on. Some of you have noticed this already. In the past, this has been set to "NONE". This allows you to pick up a guy during or right after a game. You don't have to wait a few days and use a waiver claim. I like it this way and plan to switch it to NONE on Saturday at midnight.

    But, if there is a player that you would like to use a waiver claim on from the New York / Dallas game, I will process those using email. Just send me an email before midnight on Saturday with the name of the guy you want to use your waiver on. The lowest waiver number will get the player if more than one want to claim a guy. If you win the claim, your waiver priority will get set back to 10. On Saturday at midnight, all players will be available once again.

    Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    BillLaimbeer
