    im sure if you draft a good enough all-around player they can learn to play bw ru if necessary and compete on at least a .500 basis

    Adding another DPP OU slot would even the numbers and making finals week much more exciting. Of all the minority tiers (those not named BW OU), DPP OU is by far the most popular. There are a lot more players that miss out on this tier than any other.

    I think we're more than fairly passed the point of arguing this.

    Didn't really see this as a problem that needed addressing since I figured the manager trade veto would only be used in the most extreme circumstances, but never underestimate the managers abilities to whine about things.

    Managers have 48 Hours from the time that a trade is announced to challenge the trade and call for a veto vote.

    I'm not familiar with SPL. Is it on PO, or on the ds?

    A change to the format has been made.

    At midseason, managers may opt to sell back inactive players to receive 3000 credits. These sales must be alerted to the host BEFORE the end of week 4. This is only allowed for an inactive player being defined as someone who has a player who has:

    • Been subbed out of a match due to inactivity.
    • Lost a match due to inactivity.
    • Not played a match since the start of SPL due to inactivity.

    Any player attempted to be sold who does not meet this criteria can be petitioned to be allowed to sold to the host, and these petitioned players can be vetoed by a 7/9 vote by the uninvolved managers.

    Players dropped in this manner cannot be repurchased at Midseason
