i agree with all of the above points, i think y'all are seeing that side of me - i like and encourage input. this is OUR league, not MY league. i really believe that. and i appreciate all the good advice and the fine compliments i've received so far. i hope to get more of both!
i definitely want us to be 100% drafted players and 0% AAA asap. not sure how quick we can make that happen, and i want the insurance of those AAAs for the first season just in case. with such a slow draft, there's been plenty of time for me to brainstorm and trouble-shoot ahead of time.
one of the reasons i wanted to use empty seasons for players who's careers weren't over yet is to make more guys available. this will only give us a few guys each season, but it can't hurt. plus i know we are smarter then the GMs of the 19th century, so why should we suffer from their decisions?? salary hold-out? pay the dude.
