No offense meant foxx, but I won't entertain the idea of a complete blacklist of skill players. I don't mind the idea of returning owners being forced to pick different O lines and D's but BL'ing everyone would be too much work for an already overworked commish (me) getting the league prepared, and limit the player pool too greatly.
The other thing is...what about non returning owners? I'd hate to join this league for the first time and draw the top pick and not be able to pick Manning or Rodgers. And if we let new owners pick anybody, it would be too unfair for the rest of us returning owners. How could any of our returning teams compete with a new team with Manning at QB, OJ at RB and Crazy Legs at WR when we have Bernie Kosar or Jim Plunkett, Eddie George at RB and Chris Chambers at WR.
tarheel is right...pretty much every returning team will end up with different players, unless someone gets the exact same draft spot and the player they love is still there. Most owners though will bend over backwards to try to select a different player anyways. I know I will NEVEr take Adrian Peterson at 12 again lol
Lets worry more about getting 24 owners again.
