I personally like having 2 centers on the roster. As far as any changes, including an auction-style draft, we'd need a majority to change them.

Anybody that feels strongly about wanting a change, go ahead and make a poll thread. I will direct everybody here to vote. Maybe make it a public vote so we only count actual managers' votes.

When/how is the draft order chosen?

Let's start up the Rook League again so we can lower the amount of people in the Vets?

Setting a custom draft order would be cool. Maybe allow people to pick their spot based on how they finished last year? Would take a bit of time to get everyone organized to do it.

Two leagues again would also be great, but only if we can keep the vet league at a minimum of 12 teams. I find 10 or fewer teams to be too casual because every roster is loaded.

That sounds like a dynasty league in the making.

I kind of like the 14x14 format in this league. Offers something different without being really goofball...

I also prefer 14 teams over anything else as long as all the owners are active.

Shall we try to organize a rookie league this year? If so we probably should invite managers sooner rather than later as it's about 3 weeks till start of the season...

Shouldn't we make sure we have 14 active managers first in the Vet league before starting a rookie league and see if there's enough demand?

Doing something simply because the way it's been done for 15 years isn't a convincing argument. Can you provide any other reason to support your opinion?

Count me in. I'm also pretty much a rookie.

Maybe do a 10 team rookie league that would include the 13th and 14th place GMs from last year, kinda like relegation. 8 newbies and 2 vets. Then go with a 12 team Vet league.

Ok I started the rookie league again. The same rules will apply as the Vets league. Here's the link... https://basketball.fantasysports.yahoo. ... 9ab8f022f4

If we don't want to go Auction, how do people feel about a keeper league?

You could do a 3 round penalty for keepers - meaning if you draft a player in round 12 this year and want to keep them, you lose your 9th round pick next year.

That's probably not gonna work if we do the rook/vet league thing.

That's kind of the problem. Everyone has a different idea or suggestion but not enough people can agree on it, so we'll end up with a 12/14 team snake draft like every other year.

I think the only solution is to keep the league how it's always been for those who don't want to change, and solicit or make a new league with the changes you'd prefer (auction, keeper, whatever).

I'm all for trying something new as long as the owners, and especially the commissioner, are fully invested. Nothing ruins a fantasy league quicker than auto picks in an auction draft or owners who give up halfway through the first season in a keeper league.

I think we should all agree that the rookie/vet thing won't happen. We seem to have trouble just filling up our league, so getting an additional 6-10 teams will probably not happen.

Let's work on making the vet league the best it can be.
