"There are many great suggestions here. We'll see what we can incorporate in our next round of updates. We may reach out to the group when we get closer."


At this point, this is all we can expect. Admin can't just snap their fingers and implement the whole thing. I hope that admin will seriously consider all or at least part of what we posted. Again I want to thank everybody that submitted ideas.

...as the season winds down you submit your "keepers" which is the list of players whose rights you wish to retain...they are not eligible to be drafted by anyone in the next draft because they are your players...then it's the 1941/1971 draft and all the players whose rights are not held by anyone go into the draft pool...etctetc...

And even the bad seasons don't hurt so much, because you at least have a high draft pick to look forward to and better days ahead.
Y'hit the nail on the head, crazy...one doesn't seem to mind the "rebuilding" seasons.

I've taken over some clunkers & have led them to decent(if not playoff & WS) seasons.

If you're looking for a new challenge, amy...I highly suggest Progs.

Please... No names named here... It's pretty easy to figure out what league I'm talking about, but everyone is acting in what they consider to be good faith, and there's no point in trashing anyone's reputation. Thanks.

Ok... Here's the situation. I am neither owner A nor owner B, both of whom (though) are in my division (just mentioning that in case you think I'm trying to alter competitive balance). Both of these guys are outstanding owners in the sim, each has way more champoinships than I do.

Last season, Owner A posted his keeper list. He had a useful backup OF in Lee Maye on it. The commish of the league eventually built the draft list for the league, and he INCLUDED Lee Maye on the available player list Nobody noticed this until late in the draft, when Owner B drafted Lee Maye at the very end of the draft, when he was making up a bunch of missed picks.

Because owner A had already entered his team, he wasn't watching the thread any longer when owner B drafted his player.

A few weeks into the season, owner A was playing owner B and noticed that Lee Maye was on the Owenr B's team... He called him out on this, and the whole situation was discovered.

At that time the commish made a decision... Both teams could keep Lee Maye this season, but the rights to him in future years went to Owner B, who drafted him in this years draft. The commish felt that the error was on the part of owner A for not catching the commish's mistake in posting the available players.

Admittedly, Lee Maye is NOT an important player. But precedents are important... I'd hate to have a similar situation with an important player.

Ok... here's the poll....

1 question

Who should get the rights to Lee Maye

(1) - Owner A, who drafted him originally, and listed him correctly as a keeper

or

(2) - Owner B, who drafted him last year after seeing him on the available player listing

Thanks for your input.

bump for Proxy mix up in Reach For Tomorrow 1933/1973 Progressive Draft

I feel that this situation has not been handled well. By all parties involved.

1. The commish posted he was available for proxies and messed up, he failed.

2. Shysters3 only sent a proxy to 1 person. Failed.

3. I was the first person to pick after the posting of the missed proxy. I failed.

4. The commish failed to announce a solution. Fail.

5. We continued the draft. Many failed.

I cannot speak for everyone involved. But I can speak for myself. I was wrong when I made my pick. I should have posted that I would hold up my pick until this issue was resolved. I believe everybody behind me would have honored this move and held up the draft for a few minutes/hours. But I didn't, I started the ball rolling downhill getting deeper and deeper into the mess we are in now. I feel bad that I helped this screwup. Only because I was in a hurry to pick, shoulda thought it thru better.

I for one would not have a problem with backing up. Let's to the right thing here. The ball is in Outbackers court here. I will agree with whatever he decides is best for the league.

Anyways, my two bits.

As it stands I would have to subtract each players multiple team stats to get it.

I just want to type say 1950 to see how many players are available to draft for that season.

Is there a way?

"Full" won't work because you are then eliminating all players that were traded mid-season. Those players will not appaer at all. Full/combined is the best way to do it.

....I see it now,

thanks uncleal & ox,

it sucks that we have to delete multiple players manually instead of just getting a correct number, considering that there's so many progressives going.

bump for survey

If it helps, the underlying rationale behind automating the draft, and the league, is to decrease drudge work for the commissioner and, more importantly, eliminate errors.

The common errors include -

- owners/commissioners leaving a player or two off their keeper roster
- commissioners creating faulty available player lists (usually missing someone's kept player. If you don't discover it early enough you can really disrupt a draft.
- commissioners missing a drafted player (usually by bolding out or deleting the player in the available players list)
- owners drafting a player who is either unavailable or had been drafted earlier

Running a draft demands attention to detail, and even the best commissioners and owners are only human. The detail stuff could be handled much better by the computer.

btw - I want to join in the thanks to tzent & the site staff for attending to this too.

i run a couple of progressives and each season I list every player for draft and keepers. i figured if i posted the list i might save some other prog commishes a few minutes/hours of time.

what follows are lists from the seasons i have run already. if you have any FULL comprehensive lists for other seasons please add. DO NOT post impartial lists.
