New Salary Cap Progressive (Waitlist) Topic

Sure Ill give it a go. My only dislike is the 4 team lottery. I've always thought the worst team should never have to pick lower than 3rd (this stems from my 3-win team end up with Sleepy Floyd), but this could make the worst team pick 5th. Won't stop me from playing. Thanks for setting this up.

I see some chatter on the salary cap.... Because I don't play enough, I'm not sure the answer to this question....How difficult will it be to maintain the "minimum" salary? If someone has a really bad team, would they be unable to draft a top rookie who may have a very low 1st season salary?

I think you'd be able to draft enough filler. There are going to be a lot of cuts. One of the things that always drives me crazy is teams with like 26,000 minutes and then other teams struggling to fill their teams out. With an average of 22 players available per team at an average of 1900 minutes per player (and like 3.5M per player if I recall correctly), there is more than enough minutes and money to go around with each team able to carry a couple low minutes/salary people.

The one thing I am struggling with is whether or not to offer an IR. I don't want to deprive draft-able resources but I don't want to over constrain team building more than it is.

I may go without one for the first season or two and then put it to a vote after that.

We are getting really close, this is exciting. Feel free to SM any owners you would like to see join who have not already signed up. I have been thinking about interesting things we might see in this league that you don't see elsewhere and it has me pretty stoked.

I got rid of that part a couple days ago and made it a normal draft for filling in all open roster spots. There is just normal add drop after that. The free for all part seemed like too much of a headache.

I'll jump in or start the waitlist if I'm one too late.


Like the idea of a salary-cap and floor, prevent tanking

Yep, updated first post to reflect it.

Maybe it’s my poor reading comprehension skills but could you please clarify “nothing fancy with the IR rules” please? Does this mean there is an IR?

Excited to get the league going! Looks fun!
