Here's an interesting rule change that I want to hear some feedback on.

If a team does not get selected in the Franchise round, then none of the players on that team are eligible for later rounds. Thoughts?

Looking like we won't do salaries, though.

Not a fan of this idea.

Alright, the game is on. I'll allow people to join until midnight tonight, but after that I'm closing the signup and determining the draft order.

This weekend will be a good time to discuss rules and such.

I've agreed to be a commish, but I think AB and I would like a 3rd possibly.

Between school and work, there's going to be times I'll have no access to a computer but I'll gladly assist people when I'm on.

Looking like we won't do salaries, though.

If we have 20 GMs. That's 10 teams that won't get picked. Lets say each team has 12 players, that's 120 players that would be ineligible. I don't think I like that idea. I think the players that are on teams that didn't get pick should all be available for the player's draft.

I'm not a huge fan, either, just because it takes a lot of interesting players out of the mix.  The better the players available, the more interest there will be in later rounds, etc. 

That's just my suggestion, though; you guys are in charge.
I certainly see that, but it does sort of almost weight it better to be one of the last team selections as you will get two #1's and a #2 (I mean after OKC, HOU, and MIA - in no particular order - there aren't any other teams that have two #1 type players unless you also get the #1 from another team).

The one question I have is, how are injured players treated?  For example, would I want Rose on my team even though he isn't going to play again this year?  Will people still consider him a near MVP player or a guy that isn't even on a roster?

This varies.

I tend to think (significantly) injured players should be looked at as such.

A healthy Rose is likely a top-10 pick, but right now it's tough to argue that he can lead your team.

agreed.  all players should be available, including injured.  if someone doesn't take Chicago but someone wants to take Rose to build a team for the future, let them.

He doesn't play this year but is a great asset for the future.
