I would appreciate it if you put the actual minutes next to those guys



6 of the guys on that list are on my team.  Is that a good thing?  John Henson and his 1.13 pts per min is available....

At the risk of being a .... ninny? party pooper? buzzkill? pain in the rozier? etc.....

I'll remind folks that on some level the pimping of relatively minor players and the escalating back-and-forth over selective stat samples led (eventually and with other factors to be sure) to some pretty bad behavior and the last thread being locked.

My point: Maybe we can make new habits? Maybe we can tread more lightly and/or just say something like "Player X is available. Did you know he had more ___ than ___ other players?" and leave it at that.

The league, IMO, is more important than any single team's needs.

I agree.  It seems the main purpose of having a thread is to update on latest news, list latest trades and act as a trading block.  The rabble rousing every time someone makes a player available is unnecessary. If you don't like a player, you don't have to say something about it.  If you do, feel free to make an offer privately.  But the behavior has submarined threads in the past and it's not healthy. 

Also I'd say the majority of the time, the person making the negative public comments is privately trying to acquire the player... So there's a bit of gamesmanship involved usually...  Trash the guy you want publicly to try to drive down the price.   But obviously it's caused larger problems in the past so it should come to an end.

I'll fully admit I was guilty of this in the past.  Eja had made Chandler Parsons available.  I publicly made comments about his injury, because I wanted Chandler Parsons.   It was gamesmanship.   I get the gamemanship aspect, but in light of what's happened, it should probably end.  It just forces the GM to go into defensive mode to salvage the public value of his player... and that causes a domino effect.

What are the chances of having the offseason tracking spreadsheet updated?

Ping byennie.  He might be on vacation or something.  I know there's 5 small trades of my own that haven't been added yet.  He probably likes to just get a bunch of them done at once.

I have pinged byennie. He is requesting the weekend and expressing minor frustration with the general conduct of the league.

I think maybe we need to consider a rule limiting teams to like one trade a week in the offseason. Like, submit them on Fri nite. Watch them post over the weekend.  Because the amount of work that was thrown at byennie this off season was epic

Hi guys,

The spreadsheet will be updated this weekend. Honestly, it was not a great time dealing with the fallout from the last thread that got locked on here. Among other things, it was necessary to preserve our league's reputation on CBlog. I'm glad to see this thread relatively calm.

I'm also pondering some ideas for adding a little more structure to the offseason, and separating official business from wide open threads. TBD, feel free to PM me with ideas.
