Eh, the rule kind of makes sense even though I disagree with it. I don't really care though, this league has kind of handcuffed me from the start:

I only have one QB Matt Cassel and he was out for the first game so I had to start Pat White who has 0 fantasy points this season. I also had to start him my bye week. Now my only TE, by far my best player Owen Daniels is gone for the season and the highest points for TE's in FA is 5 for the whole season. 5 frickin points. So why can't I trade with a team that's out of contention to fill the void I have at TE?


That's TE. Once a TE gets injured, you might be screwed in any league. It's luck of the draw. But who says you can't trade for a TE with a team in contention? I believe, really, every team still is. Or atleast 18/20.

Oh and, there have been a lot of QBs who took over starting that were originally a FA.


Maybe if you also made a rule that you can't have 4 QB's on your roster I might not be having this problem...

Also I wouldn't be screwed in any other league. The fact is that there are 20 teams in this league and when I had a bye week for my defense there wasn't even one I could pick up. If I were in a regular 12 team league and I needed a defense, even if every team had two I could still pick up something. Same goes for TE, if I were in a regular league there'd be someone I could pick that at least had a chance to get me 3 or more points a week instead of one that only has 3 points on the whole season.

Plus it's not like I can go trading for a TE because half of the teams only have one TE on their whole team.

BTW, for one I'm a QB whore :thumbright: (But only one starts). Second, I then guess someone should have had a back-up plan at TE... :thumbleft:

It's hard to have a back-up plan when only 12 out of 20 teams can actually have a back-up plan...?

I understand I'm complaining and yes it's all a part of playing in a 20 game league. I'm just trying to point out that I've been handcuffed from the start because of the 20 player format. dhazer said it perfectly when he pointed out that his team was set after the draft. I haven't used one FA pickup yet (unless you count Dreesen and White who have combined for a stellar 1 point the whole season).

The rule makes sense, changing it in Week 9, absurd.


Another reason I don't like PH tagged with something led by ... well ... you know ... one of them ... Yankees fans. :P

I don't like the new rule, if its a bad trade veto it, also do like alot of the leagues i get into have a vote on if it should go thru. With your new rule you will actually take away from alot of trading thus not much is done now but what team in contention is going to want to trade to help someone else in contention? But i have bitched about this league from day 1 with to many players drafted with this many teams.

I haven't hear someone whine so much in the position you are in, ever!

Shut up dude, you are beating the shit out of everything. You lose your right to complain.
