Changes would make that harder to do FOR EVERYONE hence the reason you are reacting like a mogwai in the light

whoa, there. I didn't say I'd made the playoffs; I said I hadn't lost a game in the playoffs. we all "make the playoffs". and I haven't used same tactics. the year I won it, I gambled on wide receivers and got antonio brown and julio jones. but anyway... the point was that I have used waivers very successfully, although you have to dig a bit for nuggets. it's not just about the initial draft (and position pot luck). I currently find it hard enough to get rid of players to make room for fresh meat and this would make things worse, not better - although I agree there's currently very thin pickings in waivers (jason witten is available, though). what I don't want is fewer rbs in the team, but I liked when we had a two te flex option. on balance, I think it's about right now and would resist tinkering.

imagine me saying "now, was that civilised?"

another change we need to make. Draws.

Player with most bench points wins. It really does not help anyone having a draw.

in my other leagues I had 2 draws this season lost both to points on the bench but at least you have a winner.

*sigh*

you know you draw because you didn't win? like in real football (or soccer). does us-ing it up and having penalties after a draw sound good?

one good reason a draw helps? um... a draw is worth half a game and puts you above teams that lost?

if you have players on byes and have cleverly covered them, bench points decider penalises you. why not nominate a captain in each team? or away points count double (they don't). or whoever is prepared to go to the back of the waiver queue?

I don't think your suggestions are improvements. soz.
