Im missing where it says rosters freeze for the playoffs. That was my main concern, not that there were playoffs

I'm not freezing teams. We decided at the live meeting that it would not be fair.

We also thought adding a 50 cent transaction fee would limit churning, a mistake that was forced to be corrected as fast as possible as soon as possible, so I know we weren't perfect in our judgment.

We did the best we could with what we had.

Teams are not locked - eliminated teams are not locked because they still have every right to go for that month's prize. Tried to be as fair as I could and everyone who attended that meeting agreed.

Houdini, I did not mean to get you bent out of shape. I reacted to a post about freezing rosters. Your hard work is always appreciated.

You've got to give me a chance to reply to things.

When you say these things need to be discussed BEFORE the draft, it implies that they were not.

Then when you say I changed the rules after the league started, it implies that I had a choice.

This league was a bad idea - but I thought it would be fun. The breaks are fun and the actual match ups are fun... conceding one week to set your roster up for 2 or 3 weeks of dominance is fun. I have enjoyed it immensely.

The rest? Not so much.

Again, I did not mean to imply things weren't discussed. Apologies for any misunderstanding

That is more than double the amount of moves I have made.

Can't wait to use the shot glass from HHOC.

Oh, I washed it, and it's ready for the Blackberry. Thanks again Houdini, and I'm not a Nut Hugger.
