The EXPENDABLES League
No Clones, No WW, No Trades, 47 Mil Cap

Some players are special.. you protect them, you keep them close. Other players you deem expendable.. you cut them.. and they may come back to cut you.

1.       Choose a franchise and season.. for example 88-89 Chicago Bulls
2.       Spend up to 20 million on any number of players from the team you chose.. You could take 2 players or 6.. as long as the total is 20 million or less. These are your team’s keeper’s.
3.       Everyone else on your roster becomes EXPENDABLE. You don’t care about them.. and you cannot draft them. But every other team in the league can.
4.       Once the league is full and every owner has designated their “keepers” you fill out the rest of your roster with EXPENDABLES. That’s right, the remainder of your roster comes from guys that are not kept by the other 23 owners.
5.       To avoid shenanigans if an owner has 2 teams they cannot use EXPENDABLES from either team.
6.       Franchise/Season choices are unique. But 87-88 Chicago Bulls is a different choice than 88-89 Chicago Bulls for example.. There are LOTS of great combinations to take.
 
So, Sign-up and choose a franchise and season.. first come, first serve..  plenty of good ones to go around..

Like this idea I'm in. Will pick team later
5/23/2013 12:22 AM
12-13 Heat
5/23/2013 12:23 AM
Feels like I'm cheating to take that Lebron season
5/23/2013 12:24 AM
And Wade of course

Welcome..

I like that 12-13 Heat pick obviously.. you get a better Lebron than anyone else can take.. a great D-Wade.. but everyone else can now count on having Bosh and Allen as guys they can use.. I can probably see a place for Allen on my squad depending on who else is out there.. Will see what leftover bigs you can fill the team out with!

86-87 Celtics

Nice. Definitely a big 3 on that squad.. and you can afford to keep 2. Meaning everyone else gets a shot at the 3rd.

Just to clarify, even though 12-13 Miami is taken, other owners can still use other seasons of James, Wade, and/or Bosh, correct?
5/23/2013 8:38 AM
Assuming sly's keepers are Lebron and Wade.. then any team in the league could use Bosh's 12-13 season right now.

You could sign up for 11-12 Heat and have 11-12 Lebron and Wade if you wanted.. or you could sign up for the 08-09 Cavs and have Lebron and whoever else.

I toyed with the idea of making the expendables twistable.. but maybe if this goes I'll run a sequel with a few twists like that.

I thought it was clear that other teams with LBJ or Wade (or whoever) could be taken, but what I intended to try to ask was will player seasons not taken be eligible for owners to use when creating their teams.
 
For example, if the 12-13 Heat are the only LBJ team taken, can other owners add 09-10 LBJ to their teams?
Like on Open League, but with 48 player seasons (not players) exclusive.

No. The only players in the pool are the players on the 24 selected teams.
5/23/2013 12:28 PM
If that weren't the case you would probably be better off taking one guy and just drafting a close to open league squad.
